I'm in my pjs eating Halloween candy and drinking coffee. Must be Saturday! So bring on the news!!
-Lauren Kate's latest book has a cover! It's called Rapture (is this the last?? No, seriously, do you know?) but she's also announced a book of Fallen short love stories
-Also in cover news, Aprilynne Pikes newest (last? again, who knows?) book in the Wings series has a cover.
-Acclaimed YA author Cecil Castellucci is coming through Toronto, and will be conducting a writing workshop next Wednesday, November 16th. Not sure if you know any aspiring writers ages 13-17, but this is a really cool opportunity to interact and share writing with a published author!
-The November Cassandra Clare teaser is up. Since Clockwork Prince is a mere 4 weeks away (yay!!) the teasers are now officially from City of Lost Souls.
-Tessa Gratton (Blood Magic) just signed a three book deal with Random House for a new YA trilogy. It sounds pretty interesting (Norse Gods, alternate US History) and was inspired by her translation of Beowulf. Check out the PW article for details.
-USA Today had a small article on Pottermore coming back online for the 1 million Beta users (lucky buggers), although most of the info wasn't anything new I was interested in her comments as one of the beta users. Evil tease I tell you!
-Christopher Paolini's epic Eragorn series launched book the last this week, Inheritance, to the tune of nearly 500,000 books sold (in all formats) on the release day! WOW! Except all I keep thinking is where in gods name is the my copy already! A neat article talking about the moments Christopher feels shaped him into a bestseller was posted by the Huffington Post. As well, Laini Taylor posted a nifty video shot as he wrote the last paragraph of the series, she also talks about what a great feeling typing THE END is. Now all I need to do is get my hands on Inheritance already, torture!
-In bonus news, Simon and Schuster has posted more bonus content for Jonathan Maberry, this time for Dust and Decay.
- Finally, remember when I gave away And Tango Makes Three for the banned giveaway hop? Well it turns out that Toronto has it's very own pair of gay penguins, and they're causing quite the stir. Check out the Huffington Post article. The funny part is I've been meaning all summer to go check out this new exhibit. Guess it's time to make my way to the Zoo!
