As a self-published ebook Zenith, the first chapter in an ongoing scifi series called The Androma Saga, is already a New York Times best-seller. Now, io9 can exclusively reveal that Harlequin, a division of HarperCollins, has acquired the rights to release the full series as three-dimensional products.

Written by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings, the first part of Zenith was released in June and hit #1 on the New York Times eBooks list... and it wasnā€™t even the full book. Which is why Harlequin pursued it, and plans on releasing the full thing sometime next year.

Zenith is about a notorious space mercenary nicknamed the Bloody Baroness. She and her all-girl crew fly across the galaxy on the Marauder and are tested by an evil bounty hunter with links to the Baronessā€™ past. At the same time, a mysterious, evil ruler on the planet Xen Ptera is biding her time to tear the universe in half and itā€™ll be up to the Bloody Baroness and her crew to unravel the mystery.

ā€œThis spaceship is ready for lift off!ā€ said Alsberg. ā€œI am so ecstatic about this new adventure Lindsay and I get to go on with Zenith. We started off just wanting to do this for our readers as something fun, but it quickly turned into a story weā€™re passionate about and so proud of. I am just so grateful to the readers for their support so far, and I cannot wait to see where this journey is going to take us. I am also super excited to soon hold Zenith in my hands. That will be such a surreal moment!ā€

ā€œThe journey with Zenith has been amazing so far,ā€ added Cummings. ā€œWe have the best readers in the entire world and Iā€™m so thrilled that we will now be able to offer them the chance to hold the full physical book in their hands in 2017. Sasha and I are so excited to join forces with Harlequin Teen for the rest of Zenith, and weā€™re confident that readers are going to have a blast embarking on this adventure with us!ā€
