I’m finally able to share with you the news I’ve been hinting out for a while.
Yeah, get ready for some supernatural gifs.
All the way back in March of 2013, I got an email titled “Covenant Series” and I quickly read through it. It was from a production company interested in the Covenant Series. The email was forwarded onto my agent Kevan Lyon and my wonderful film/TV agent Brandy Rivers. I may not have been in this business a billion years, but I knew enough to not get too excited. Authors get these kind of emails all the time.
Days turned into weeks. Weeks turned into Months and then in June, after I’d gotten the call about the Obsidian movie deal, I get a call from Brandy, telling me she needed to get me on the phone the next day with the production company. The one that had expressed interest in the Covenant Series back in March.
Because THIS is what came out of that phone call and was officially announced today.
From PUBLISHER’S MARKETPLACE:
NYT and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Armentrout’s young adult Covenant series, where a teenage “half-blood” descendant of the Greek gods is forced to return to a world that oppresses those with part mortal lineage, and while she falls hard for the one person forbidden to her, she unknowingly may fulfill an ancient Greek prophecy that could destroy everything, optioned to Norton Herrek of Herrek Entertainment, by Brandy Rivers at The Gersh Agency on behalf of Kevan Lyon at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
Oh my God. So yeah, I’ve been doing a lot of internal screaming and crazy muppet baby dancing for several months. I’m very excited and thrilled with the discussions we’ve had with Herrick Entertainment and their excitement about the characters and the world of the Covenant Series. Half-Blood was my first book, written somewhere between 2007/2008 and will always hold a special place in my heart. So seeing it get this opportunity is pretty mind blowing.
This is in the beginning stages of the option. Just like with the Obsidian deal, this is the first big step in an entire football field length of steps. This is big, HUGE news and over the course of the next weeks/months, I’m sure they’ll be more updates as the process moves onto hiring a screenwriter and all that good stuff. Like with the Obsidian deal, there will be long periods of silence. That’s normal. These things can take a while to find that right group of people.
(Yes. These are my early copies of Sentinel. Practically the only ones in the world right now)
None of this would be possible without the fans of the Covenant Series. None of it. You guys are truly amazing and I seriously do get a bit teary eyed when I think about how you guys started with book 1, stuck around, and are about to read the last book. It’s because of all of you that this series has a chance to take the jump to TV. So thank you.
HOLY COW!! AM I DEAD?! Is this serious? pff! Of course it's serious. What are you think guys?
