NEWS: HALF WAY HOME by Hugh Howey Acquired for John Joseph Adams Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)

In my role as editor of John Joseph Adams Books for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, I’m please to announce a new acquisition for the imprint. Here’s the deal memo that just ran on Publishers Marketplace:

NYT bestseller Hugh Howey’s previously self-published HALF WAY HOME, in which an abort order to terminate a colony ship fails, and the remaining colonists don’t know if their new home or their fellow survivors are the greater threat, to John Joseph Adams at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, in an exclusive submission, for publication in fall 2019, by Kristin Nelson at Nelson Literary Agency.
