Rachel Caine in Melbourne & 4 New Deals (Despain, Fitzpatrick, Verday)

Rachel Caine came to Dymocks Melbourne on Wednesday 14th November. Mainly here to promote her latest Morganville Vampires release, Bitter Blood, but reportedly her Revivalist series is full of science, so I need to get on it!

Bree Despain‘s Into the Dark trilogy to Egmont (NA). A reimagining of the Persephone myth, delivered in duelling narratives. In the myth, Persephone (daughter of Demeter, goddess of the harvest) is kidnapped by Hades; here, one thread follows a character named Daphne (based on Persephone), while the other narrative follows Haden (standing in for Hades). The first book in the series is scheduled for 2014.

Becca Fitzpatrick‘s Hush, Hush series optioned to LD Entertainment.

Jessica Verday‘s untitled stand-alone spinoff from her The Hollow series to Simon Pulse (NA) for publication in 2013. Featuring Cyn and Avian, one of the original Revenants.

Jessica Verday‘s Of Monsters and Madness to Egmont for publication in 2014. A series of romantic YA Gothic thrillers inspired by The Strange Case of Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, and the works of Edgar Allan Poe. As told by Annabel Lee, a young girl who moves to Philadelphia in 1826 to live with her father, and discovers that he may be implicated in a series of murders across the city, and only she can prove his innocence and protect him from the true evil he has created in his basement lab.
