NEXT STOP: WEREWOLVES! More Big News from Claudia Gray, celebrated author of the EVERNIGHT series (popular young adult novels shown at the bottom of this post)
*** begin quote from Claudia’s blog ***
My big news! I’ll be publishing another novel with HarperTeen in fall/winter 2011 — no title yet, but it’s about a servant girl named Tess in 1912, who wants to escape from the house where she works, and most particularly the lecherous young lord of the manor. But that’s not her biggest problem. While on a voyage to America, where she plans to escape and start a new life, she meets Alec, who’s ruggedly handsome, fabulously wealthy, intelligent and yet so clearly troubled that she’d rather not fall for him, but she does. That also is not her biggest problem. Alec, it turns out, is a werewolf … one cursed to change every night, unless and until he surrenders his independence and joins the Brotherhood, a pack of violently misogynistic werewolves who have been tracking him for months.

“When you’re immortal, true love really is forever.”
Immortal (August 2008) is an anthology of stories about the beauty, passion and terror of love affairs between mortals and vampires. “Free: A Story of Evernight” tells the history of Patrice Devereaux, Bianca’s friend and roommate in Evernight. Patrice’s life as a free woman of color in antebellum New Orleans allows her a very strange kind of freedom, one with definite limits and a definite end. Just as she prepares to take a tremendous risk for love, a mysterious man appears in town with very different ideas about liberation — and an obsession with Patrice that might cost her everything.
Immortal is *officially* available exclusively at Borders stores or Borders online. *unofficially* copies are available on Amazon and Ebay by third party sellers (though only the original cover is currently being sold).
Other authors featured in Immortal include Cynthia Leitich Smith, Rachel Caine, Richelle Mead, Nancy Holder, Kristin Cast and Tanith Lee. The anthology is edited by P.C. Cast. You can read an excerpt of Free: A Story of Evernight, as well as excerpts from some of the other stories, at TeenLibris.
That’s right!! The agelessly scrumptous and galant vampire from Evernight Academy may not get the girl (Bianca will always love Lucas, right?) but he WILL get his own book once the four book Evernight series reaches its close!
