Outside the classroom walls the Rising was spreading, but inside was a carefully protected sanctuary against the growing threat. Or so the teachers and students thought. On what will be the last day in the teaching career of Elaine Oldenburg, who fans of the series know as Foxy, she must fight to survive and protect her students when the zombie outbreak shatters the safety of her school.

Brynn Atwood is a low-level Magus whose unpredictable precognitive powers have made her an outcast among her people – and an embarrassment to her highly-regarded father. After a frightening vision in which her father is murdered by a loup garou man, Brynn decides to prove herself by finding the killer, and stopping them at any cost. Her target is Rook McQueen, the son of a small-town loup garou Alpha. Despite being the youngest of three, Rook is first in line to inherit the role of Alpha, a duty he isn’t sure he’s capable of fulfilling. When Brynn finally meets Rook, she doesn’t expect the attraction that draws her to him – and him to her. No longer believing him a murderer, Brynn and Rook strike an alliance to find her father’s real killer. But when his older brother is targeted by an unknown enemy, Rook will have to choose between his growing feelings for Brynn and his duty as the future Alpha of his community.

6 New Deals (Carleson, Cross, Lowe, Meade, Rose, Ruby)

J. C. Carleson‘s Placebo Junkies (2015) to Knopf (North American rights). A gritty YA novel in the vein of Trainspotting, about street kids who make a living as test subjects in clinical drug trials. The novel is based on real accounts of “professional guinea pigs.”

Kady Cross‘s new series to Harlequin Teen (World English rights) in a three-book deal. Book 1, Abandon, follows twin sisters – one living, and one dead – who are able to communicate with each other. The series was pitched as “Supernatural meets Sweet Valley High“.

Ceri A. Lowe‘s dystopian YA trilogy to Bookouture. Set in a post-apocalyptic London, where inhabitants are routinely frozen until they are needed by “The Industry”. Woken from a fifteen-year sleep as a potential candidate for the position of Controller-General, Carter Warren discovers that the world has changed in ways that make him begin to question everything that he believes in. And it might just be worse than the end of the world… Book 1, The Start of Things due for publication in April 2014.

Kelly Meding (writing as Kelly Meade): New Paranomal romance trilogy, Cornerstone Run, to Intermix. Set in a world of hidden loup garou, their mystical Magi enemies, and the occasional vampire. The small, reclusive town of Cornerstone, Pennsylvania, houses an almost entirely loup garou population – one of only thirteen towns around the country that serve as a sanctuary for their nonhuman inhabitants, where the loup garou are free to be themselves. When a neighbouring sanctuary town is attacked by a vicious, unknown enemy, the three sons of Cornerstone’s Alpha must stand together to protect their people – and the women who steal their hearts. Trilogy titles are Black Rook (2014), Gray Bishop, and White Knight.

M. J. Rose‘s three books. The first, In the Witch’s Blood, is a Gothic tale of erotic possession set in Belle Epoch Paris.

Laura Ruby‘s two books to Balzer + Bray (North American rights). The first, Bone Gap (2015), is told from two points of view: that of a beautiful girl who is kidnapped from a sleepy Midwestern town and imprisoned by a mysterious man, and that of the one witness, a boy who cannot forgive himself for being unable to identify her kidnapper.
