Shiloh Walker has posted a snippet from her upcoming novel, The Protected, which comes out next year. Walker has also posted an excerpt from the newly retitled, Wrecked (formerly Wrecked This Life), which comes out April 2, 2013.
Karen Mahoney has a snippet from her upcoming novel, Falling to Ash, which will only be released in the UK/Aus/NZ in September. It sucks, I know.

Fantastic news for fans of Kelley Armstrong. Bell Media just announced that Bitten is getting made into a 13 hour drama for the television station Space in Canada. That means we’ll be getting some live Clay & Elena action! Now if only we can get it in the US.
“This sexy new series is the perfect mix of suspense, action and heart, with compelling storylines and a really strong female lead,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “We’re very excited to work with No Equal Entertainment, Hoodwink Entertainment, and eOne to bring this best-selling novel series to the screen.”
“I could not be more thrilled about this. A writer always hopes her stories will live on after the last word is written, and now Elena’s will, finding fresh life in a new form,” said Armstrong.
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Creatures is currently in production for the silver screen and Screen Crush is sharing a glimpse of the leading characters and a few details. The ebook of Beautiful Creatures is currently available for $3.99.
What’s wrong with Lois Lane? According to Blastr, it seems that DC has decided that the Superman/Lane connection isn’t to be in their New 52 series, and instead, Superman will be getting it on with Wonder Woman. I’ve seen the possibility of this storyline before, but Lois was still in the picture albeit not. What do you think? Are you on board with this new pairing?
Did you miss the chance to head to New Orleans for the Authors After Dark convention earlier this month? The AAD blog has collected a bunch of the various author recaps, so if you want to hear how it was, here’s a bunch of opinions for you. If you want to go next year to Savannah, Georgia (I’ll be there with both monkeys!), registration is now open. It’s a little pricer this year, but still not as bad as RT.
