Alright, I’m back with some news. I started this post Thursday night and didn’t get back to it until yesterday, so you may have seen some of this, but hopefully some of it is still new. I should be all caught up now. :) Also, I’ll have winners from the last week (and the week before?) posted later tonight.
SciFiGuy has discovered the cover for the fifth Nocturne City novel by Caitlin Kittredge. Daemon’s Mark doesn’t have a release date yet, but I’m going to guess it won’t be until spring 2010 since Witch Craft comes out September 1st.
The Hollywood Reporter is saying there’s reports of another Buffy movie in the works. The only thing is that neither Whedon or any of the original Buffy members will be a part of it. They are talking about doing something like Star Trek did and focus on a whole new line of slayer. I’m not sure how I feel about Whedon not being involved. Buffy is his even if he doesn’t hold the rights to it (and I so didn’t know that).

Larissa Ione has added an excerpt for her story, Eternity, which will be coming out in the Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2 on September 21, 2009.
If anyone is a fan of Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series, then you really need to check out the Kate 4 snippet she posted the other day. Once she turns in her revisions, all the snippets will be coming down, so get over there fast, you won’t want to miss this. And if you haven’t seen it, here’s the first chapter to Magic Bleeds…possibly.
I came across a new author, Kelly Gay, and she has a pretty sweet cover for her debut novel, The Better Part of Darkness. It has a fairly new premise considering it involves a divorced mother of one. Seriously, is there another UF novel out there that has the main heroine being a mother? The Better Part of Darkness comes out November 24, 2009.
Divorced mother of one, Charlie Madigan, lives in a world where the beings of heaven and hell exist among us, and they aren’t the things of Sunday school lessons and Hallmark figurines. In the years since the Revelation, they’ve become our co-workers, neighbors, and fellow citizens.
Charlie works for ITF (Integration Task Force). It’s her job to see that the continued integration of our new “friends” goes smoothly and everyone obeys the law, but when a new off-world drug is released in Underground Atlanta, her daughter is targeted, and her ex-husband makes a fateful bargain to win her back, there’s nothing in heaven or earth (or hell for that matter) that Charlie won’t do to set things right.
Are you all ready for a sweet tour? The Supernatural Summer Tour involves five excellent YA authors. If you want a chance to see Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Claudia Gray and Aprilynne Pike all in one place, then got hit the tour schedule because nows your chance. I will be at the Dayton, OH signing and I so can’t wait.
