Spencer Hill Press Buys Alex Kahler YA UF

Written By: laurie - Sep• 17•12

I am so pleased to finally be able to announce that fast-growing Spencer Hill Press has bought the rights to publish the first two books in my client Alex Kahler’s series: The Hunted. MARTYR and MENDED follow gay teen protagonist, Tenn, as he uses his chakra magic to fight an assortment of new and horrible used-to-be-human monsters to rescue his mentor and first love, Jarrett. Working with a group of heroes that include twin teen witches, a woman who used to be Jarrett’s lover, and other misfits, Tenn not only has to learn all that his powers are capable of, but he has to face new challenges at every turn in the unique and terrifying world Kahler has created for his characters. Can you tell I really love this series.

Kahler used to be the assistant to Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, so you know he picked up some valuable writing tips from these two YA powerhouses! He’s also a circus aerialist and part of the infamous YARebels Vloggers on YouTube.

Look for THE HUNTED series starting in 2014. And find out more about Alex at Oh, why wait! Here’s a photo of him doing his circus act in Scotland!
