Keri Arthur recently shared some fabulous news. She’s sold two more novels in her Dark Angels series as well as a whole new series involving a phoenix, a fire spirit capable of taking on human form who is also cursed with the ability to foresee death via her dreams. There’s no word on when the new series will launch, but it’s still something to be excited about.
Ilona Andrews has announced the title to the sixth Kate Daniels novel. After many MANY considerations, it’s been narrowed down to Magic Rises and will be out.
Jocelynn Drake is going on tour! I’m actually quite excited as she’s going to be in Cincinnati, Dayton and Lansing, which gives me three chances to see her. I’m not sure which one I’ll go to yet. Nicole is trying to convince to come down for Cincinnati, but I have a feeling I’ll likely be in Lansing.
Science Fiction.com has the story that Jessica Shirvington’s Embrace has a scripts in the works for CW, written by Bill Laurin and Glenn Davis. There’s no word on when a pilot might be planned, but there’s more than just talk on this one.
Embrace will be based on the book by Jessica Shirvington and deals with protagonist Violet Eden, a teenage girl who, on her 17th birthday, finds out she’s a Grigori, a half-angel who is bound to protect humanity from fallen angels. She discovers that she is the “key to a centuries-old war between fallen angels and their earthly protectors.” In other words, switch vampires to angels and you get ‘Violet the Fallen Angel Slayer’… I mean Embrace.
