The Rook | Official Teaser | STARZ

We're thrilled to see this amazing trailer for THE ROOK (based on the novel by Daniel O'Malley)! Check below for a description of the book, and grab a copy before the new TV series airs this summer on Starz!

--

"The body you are wearing used to be mine." So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her.

She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Chequy that battles the many supernatural forces at work in Britain. She also discovers that she possesses a rare, potentially deadly supernatural ability of her own.

In her quest to uncover which member of the Chequy betrayed her and why, Myfanwy encounters a person with four bodies, an aristocratic woman who can enter her dreams, a secret training facility where children are transformed into deadly fighters, and a conspiracy more vast than she ever could have imagined.

Filled with characters both fascinating and fantastical, THE ROOK is a richly inventive, suspenseful, and often wry thriller that marks an ambitious debut from a promising young writer.

EXCITING NEWS!

I'm working on new book, which will be published by Sourcebooks. Set primarily in the 1920s, the narrative explores New York City and the remarkable true story of the black artists responsible for creating Broadway's first musical sensation - which brought jazz into the mainstream and ushered in the start of the Harlem Renaissance.

In a highly-segregated America still grappling with the effects of slavery, these artists defied the odds to become internationally-renowned trailblazers, who forever changed the look and sound of our popular entertainment.

I am so excited to tell the story of Noble Sissle, Eubie Blake, Flournoy Miller, and Aubrey Lyles, four dynamic men who, over the course of the past hundred years, went from front-page headlines to historical footnotes, the fantastic people they shared their lives with - like a teenage Josephine Baker, in her first standout role - and the unique moment in history they inhabited and shaped.

The formal announcement, which went out today in Publishers Marketplace, is here:

Non-fiction: History / Politics / Current Affairs

WE DON'T NEED ROADS author Caseen Gaines's FOOTNOTES, the story of New York in the roaring twenties and Shuffle Along, the very first Broadway show with an all-black cast and creative team to achieve success, highlighting the indelible mark it had on today's popular culture as they helped pave the way for black people to succeed amidst a society that prevents their stories from being told, to be published on the centennial of the show's opening, to Grace Menary-Winefield at Sourcebooks, in a nice deal, at auction, by Peter Steinberg at Foundry Literary + Media (NA).
