Solaris to publish fantasy and pop-culture fusion, Tune in Tomorrow, by Randee Dawn
6th July 2021
Solaris is delights to announce the acquisition of Tune in Tomorrow by Randee Dawn, in which a struggling actress gets a last-ditch chance at stardom on a fairyland reality show that offers mythic levels of fame and fortune, for publication in summer 2022.
World English Rights were acquired by Kate Coe at Solaris, with Michael Rowley editing, from Bridget Smith at JABberwocky.
Author Randee Dawn on the acquisition:
“Tune in Tomorrow is a book packed with some of the things that make me happiest: TV, divas behaving badly, being torn between two lovers, fantastic creatures and mangoes. Yes, mangoes. I’ve spent a lot of years peeking behind the entertainment industry’s tattered curtain, and it’s almost as magical and off-the-wall wackadoodle as the world of Tomorrow. Rebellion/Solaris is a perfect home for this nutty tale of redemption and renewals, and I can’t wait for everyone to tune in!”
She’s just a small town girl, with big mythic dreams.
Starr Weatherby came to New York to become… well, a star. But after ten years and no luck, she’s offered a big role – on a show no one has ever heard of. And there’s a reason for that. It’s a ‘reality’ show beyond the Veil, human drama, performed for the entertainment of the Fae.
But as Starr shifts from astounded newcomer to rising fan favorite, she learns about the show’s dark underbelly – and mysterious disappearance of her predecessor. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep her dream job – though she might just bring down the show in the process.
