Thanks, Diane!



HUNGER has a launch date

Monday, November 9th, 2009

It’s official: the HUNGER launch date is…

August 11, 2010!!!

Not a fall release after all! 🙂 I don’t see any pre-order information yet, but once I do, I’ll let everyone know.

As of now, RAGE is slated for spring 2011. I’m still writing that manuscript; it’s due March 1, 2010. (That sounds like a lot of time, doesn’t it?) More about RAGE at another time.



Updates and News

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I know, I’ve been away. Sorry!!! I plead insane business.

But I have updates. And news. 🙂

First, updates: My fabulous editor loved the revision I gave her, so HUNGER moved onto copy edits. (In case you’re wondering, that’s when things like grammar, consistency and style get reviewed very closely, and I then review all of those copy edits to make sure I agree with them and make any necessary changes. Fun, fun, fun! Actually…shhh, don’t tell, but I love reviewing copy edits. Probably because I’ve been a copy editor for more than a dozen years.)

I just finished reviewing the copy edits, and I sent everything back to my editor. So the next step will be proofreading, and getting marketing involved. And hopefully soon, I’ll have an actual month for the book, not just a season (fall 2010). More to follow!

Second, news: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/Graphia Books has just bought the second book in the series, which will be called RAGE, to be published in spring 2011.

What’s that? You want to know what RAGE is about? Heh. Stay tuned. 😉
