Not sure how many of you remember reddaverocker, but he was a pretty recognizable name in dA's literature community a few years back. He just shared some pretty major news on his Facebook page. The world rights to his YA trilogy, entitled The Borrowed Dark, has been picked up by Puffin Books, a large and long-standing name in the book publishing industry.

You can read a full article about it here

Dave's writing is stellar, and although he stopped submitting his work to deviantART, it was for publishing reasons (which, as you can tell, paid off for him :lol:). Definitely keep an eye out for his books when they come out, because I can assure you that they're going to be an adventure from start to finish.

After a very long absence coming back to find messages like these reminds me why dA got me into writing in the first place. Thanks so much guys! :)
