 Fall Winter Spring Summer

Kieran Viola at Disney-Hyperion has bought, at auction, in a six-figure deal, world rights to Maya Prasad's debut YA novel, Fall Winter Spring Summer, plus a sequel. This contemporary romance follows the four Singh sisters over four seasons as they navigate the bustle of their father's inn on Orcas Island, where a steady stream of new guests inspires secret dreams, burgeoning identities, and breathtaking kisses in the Northwest drizzle. Publication is slated for fall 2022 and fall 2023, respectively; Chelsea Eberly at Greenhouse Literary brokered the deal on behalf of Dovetail Fiction/Working Partners, and Penny Moore at Aevitas Creative Management represented the author.
I'm the author of Fall Winter Spring Summer, which will be published by Disney-Hyperion in fall 2022. It's a romantic comedy that follows the four Singh sisters over four seasons as they navigate the bustle of their father's inn on Orcas Island, where a steady stream of new guests inspires secret dreams, burgeoning identities, and breathtaking kisses in the Northwest drizzle. I can't wait to share the stories of these 4 Desi sisters with the world!
