I forgot to officially announce this on my blog. Duh! But better late than never and always an excuse to pop some cyber-champagne!
(The above champagne was indeed popped when I first got the news and couldn't tell anyone publically, in case you were wondering.)
Anyway, my Blood Coven Vampire series (Boys that Bite, Stake That, Girls that Growl) will be re-packaged and re-released starting in October of this year. One book per month - Oct, Nov, Dec - culminating with the long awaited Book #4 in the series, which will be called BAD BLOOD.
I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Berkley is doing this and that I'll get a chance to continue the series. I'm actually almost finished writing BAD BLOOD because I was already writing it for Germany, who bought the book independently. It takes place in Las Vegas and is written from Sunny's point of view. It's been a ton of fun to write - to go back to my favorite twin heroines and continue their adventures.
The re-packaged books will have new covers and will be branded as a series, unlike the originals. They'll also be a more traditional trade paperback size. I'm really hoping this will introduce a whole new generation of readers to the books who love Sunny and Rayne just as much as I do.
Okay, enough gushing. I will end by saying this is something I thought would never happen. I begged for a year and a half and got turned down for the fourth book a ton of times. Finally, Berkley not only changed their mind, but made the new deal even sweeter than I could have ever imagined. Sometimes it's all about timing and it's a good example of why you should never give up in this business and in life in general.
