New Ally Carter series goes to Orchard

Orchard Books has acquired a new teen series from US author Ally Carter.
 
The Embassy Row series is set in international embassies and the first book, All Fall Down, will be released in spring 2015 simultaneously with Carter’s new US and Australian publisher Scholastic.
 
The three-book deal for UK Rights was brokered by Megan Larkin, publishing director for Orchard Books, and Jenny Meyer of Jenny Meyer Literary Agency on behalf of Kristin Nelson at the Nelson Literary Agency.
 
“Embassy Row has all the elements of danger, glamour, romance and fun that are Ally’s trademarks, and we’re thrilled to be launching this brilliant new series next year,” said Larkin.
 
Carter, based in the mid-west of the US, is also the author of the Gallagher Girls and Heist series (published by Orchard Books in the UK). Sales of her books have totalled 428,467, according to Nielsen BookScan.
