Debut Deal!

Chelsea Eberly at Random House has acquired, in a preempt, world rights to debut author K.C. Johnson’s This Is My America, pitched as Dear Martin meets Just Mercy. High school senior Tracy Beaumont appeals to Innocence X to help exonerate her father from death row, until her brother is accused of killing his white girlfriend, and Tracy must expose a small town’s racist history in order to save her family before time runs out. Publication is planned for summer 2020, with an untitled standalone novel to follow; Jennifer March Soloway at Andrea Brown Literary Agency brokered the two-book deal.
