Randy Queen signs with Andrea Brown Literary Agency to turn Darkchylde comics into Young Adult Novels
Darkchylde is the story of Ariel Chylde, a good hearted southern teen cursed to become the creatures from her many recurring Nightmares. A break out independent comic, now poised to become a break out series of young adult novels.
"I'm elated Ariel's Chylde's journey to young adult bookshelves is in the very capable hands of Kelly Sonnack at Andrea Brown Literary Agency," says author Randy Queen. "Their track record is considerable, and Kelly's conviction, strategy, and personal enthusiasm ensures a bright trajectory."
Kelly Sonnack offers, “When the sample pages for DARKCHYLDE came across my desk, I quickly realized this was something special. For contemporary teen readers who haven’t been exposed to Ariel Chylde through Randy’s comics, I think they’ll find her hugely compelling. She’s a vivid, exciting new heroine who could refresh the current landscape of teen protagonists.”
Continues Queen, "Celebrating her 15th Anniversary in the comic book world, comic book fans have already demonstrated an enduring love for Ariel's haunted tales. The thriving YA arena is the next logical platform to bring "Darkchylde: the Ariel Chylde Saga" to a whole new audience."
Andrea Brown Literary agency is consistently ranked #1 in juvenile sales in Publishers Marketplace. Founded in New York City in 1981, it was the first literary agency to represent both children's book authors and illustrators.
