Red Harlequin Gets New Agent
Literary agency Prava i Prevodi has been appointed as sub-agent for Roberto Ricci’s young adult fantasy series, The Red Harlequin, in 19 countries across Eastern Europe, the Baltics and Greece.
The Red Harlequin series features Asheva, a teenager living in a complex world divided among Chrome Nations, where everyone lives hidden behind a mask.
A hip-hop album inspired by the series is in production, with the first song, "Behind the Mask" (signed to Target Music in Italy) launching on digital platforms in October. A feature film treatment is also in development, and negotiations with publishing companies, literary agents and music labels are under way around the world. All rights to The Red Harlequin are managed by Koko Media.
“The Red Harlequin is an exciting new addition to our YA fantasy list," says Milena Kaplarevic, rights manager, Prava i Prevodi. "A series of such quality and originality is certain to capture the imagination of readers across Eastern Europe, and we look forward to seeing it translated into many more languages.”
