Katherine DeGilio is currently looking for representation for her young adult speculative novel Dead in Yellow, complete at 86,067 words.


Alex tries to kill herself only to discover she cannot die. She finds herself bleeding, not to death, under the town’s tallest bridge beside Robine, who incidentally can’t die himself.

He brings her back to his apartment. There Robine and his immortal roommates nurse her back to health and help her manager her depression. But when things are starting to look brighter, they begin to look too bright.

The sun is expanding and going to swallow the Earth. The apocalypse is here, and while none of the immortals have ever died from bodily harm, they don’t know what will happen when they don’t have an Earth to stand on.

With the world soon to be engulfed in flame, Alex must decide whether to fall deeper into the darkness inside her or to hold onto the light, before it takes her out too.

Dead in Yellow is an 87K-word speculative young adult novel that would sit nicely between How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow and We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach.
