Hey guys! It’s me Lily. The maker was under the weather and like a helpful progeny I tried to bring her some chicken blood soup to help her feel better but you should have seen the look she gave me! BAD IDEA. So I told her all the juicy gossip I have sniffed out online and figured I share with ya’ll too.
First up is the new news about Cat and Bones I came across. Per Jeanine Frost on her blog:
I am thrilled to announce that I will be writing two more novels for the Night Huntress series, ending Cat and Bones’s storyline now at book nine instead of seven. AND, if that wasn’t enough to make my day, I am also contracted to write the first two books in a new series featuring – you guessed it – Vlad as the hero and a new character named Leila as the heroine.
Right now the tentative plan is for the first Vlad and Leila novel to release in 2012. 2011 will see the releases of the fifth Cat and Bones novel titled This Side of the Grave, Cat and Bones 6 (untitled as of now), and the holiday-themed anthology I’ll be in with Lynsay Sands that will also feature and Cat and Bones story (untitled as of now). My publisher and I are not sure if Vlad’s new stories will be called Night Huntress World, or something else since it’s the start of a new recurring-character series. More data on that once I have it.
