Drew Karpyshyn landed a deal for his original fantasy novel Children of Fire. Here’s the announcement by Publisher’s Weekly:

Del Rey Nabs SF Series by Video Game Writer

Tricia Narwani at Del Rey, in a six-figure three-book acquisition, pre-empted North American rights to a science fiction trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn, one of the lead writers of the popular video games Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Agent Ginger Clark, at Curtis Brown, represented Karpyshyn, who has also written branded Star Wars and Mass Effect novels for Del Rey. The series, which Clark said recalls work by authors like George R.R. Martin and Terry Goodkind, is a sprawling fantasy epic, told from multiple characters’ points of view. The first book, Children of Fire, is set for 2014.

Drew has been working on this project for a while, so it’s nice to see it’s moving forward.
