KRISTEN ASHLEY RETURNS TO FOREVER
WITH A FOUR-BOOK DEAL FOR THE DREAM SERIES
New York, NY—June 27, 2019
Forever, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing (GCP), has announced that they have acquired the World rights for four new novels by New York Times bestseller Kristen Ashley, author of the Rock Chick and Dream Man series.
DREAM MAKER will be published as a mass market original on May 26, 2020 with simultaneous ebook and audiobook editions. The following as-yet-untitled installments in the Dream Series will be published in fall 2020 and spring and fall 2021. Forever previously published Ashley’s Dream Man, Colorado Mountain, and Chaos series.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Kristen again to introduce readers to an all-new series and to bring back characters she created in her bestselling Rock Chick and Dream Man series,” said Amy Pierpont, Editor-in-Chief of Forever. “A new book from Kristen is always exciting but a new series is a major event!”
The Dream Series will expand on the world created in the New York Times bestselling Rock Chick and Dream man series, and the four new novels will celebrate the strength, resilience, and power of women who are forging their own paths. In DREAM MAKER, Evie is a smart, pull-herself-up-by-the-bootstraps kind of chick. Resourceful, quick-witted, and committed to her goal of earning an engineering degree, Evie won’t let anyone or anything stand in her way. Especially not an overly confident guy who insists she needs his protection. But Evie can see there’s more to Daniel “Mag” Magnusson than he presents to the world, and if he can leave his past behind, he might just earn her trust.
Kristen Ashley is a publishing dynamo that has united fans around the globe with her girl-power messaging and stories that speak to the legions of readers who love books that celebrate life, love, and sisterhood. “I’m ecstatic to dive into my new Dream Series!” said Kristen Ashley. “I love writing about strong women who aren’t what the reader expects, and who succeed by determination and with support from powerful friendships. I’m excited to share this mashup of Rock Chicks and Dream Men with readers.”
Amy Pierpont acquired World rights for four novels from Emily Sylvan Kim of the Prospect Agency.
