Release date not yet known

Vesuvius by Cass Biehn (Peachtree Teen)
Zoie Konneker at Peachtree Teen has acquired Vesuvius by debut author Cass Biehn, a queer YA historical fantasy pitched as They Both Die at the End by way of The Song of Achilles, set in Pompeii days before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in which two boys, Felix and Loren, must grapple with their closely guarded secrets and untangle their fates to make it out of the burning city alive. Publication is planned for summer 2025; Annalise Errico at Ladderbird Literary Agency did the deal for world rights.

Good Mourning by Circe Moskowitz and Caleb Hosalla (Dial) - YA graphic novel, moved from 2024.
Michelle Lee at Dial has bought, in a preempt, world English rights to Good Mourning, the debut YA graphic novel by Circe Moskowitz, pitched as Schitt's Creek meets HGTV. Black vampire Theo trades in the city and her coven for a quiet, New England inn only to find it more rundown than advertised. After (accidentally) murdering the current owner, Theo places herself in charge and ends up falling in love: with running a bed and breakfast... and with Ronny, the handywoman, who knows Theo's vampiric secret. Caleb Hosalla will illustrate; publication is slated for fall 2024. Natascha Morris at the Tobias Literary Agency represented the author, and Thao Le at Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency represented the illustrator.
