And the title for Book #4 will be...

**drum roll please!**


So what do you think? I gave the publisher a list of suggested titles and that's what they picked. Luckily, I like it! It actually would have described Stake That even better than Book #4 but that's okay. :)

I sent the art department character and setting descriptions today - they're going to start designing new covers for the series very soon! I'll, of course, show them to you as SOON as I get them!

I should know VERY soon when the re-packaged books shall start hitting store shelves. In the meantime, I'm hard at work on BAD BLOOD!

Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers!

I'm psyched! Just found out today that GAMER GIRL made the American Library Association's Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers list. w00t! I actually made the list a few years ago for Boys that Bite and it was my favorite honor to receive. I love the idea that my book is working to inspire people to start reading!

Here's the complete list, in case you're curious about who else made it.

Book #4!!!

Well, we did it! We finally convinced them that The Blood Coven series is worth continuing. My original publisher, who said "No" time and time again over the last year and a half has changed their mind and WILL publish Book #4 of the series. (Not sure of a date yet.)

Even better, they're repackaging and re-releasing the first three books. Meaning there will be brand new versions of Boys that Bite, Stake That!, and Girls that Growl on store shelves later this year. I believe they will even have different covers so if you haven't gotten the first edition versions, you might want to snatch those up soon, as they will be gone forever.

Big kudos, by the way, to my editor, Kate, who also didn't give up. She was on our team from the beginning and would tirelessly go back to her boss and ask about book #4. We owe much of this to her.

SO! I'm halfway done the book. I'm very excited about how's it coming and can't wait to share it with you! Now all we need is a release date...and a title! So if you guys have any ideas, do let me know. :) (About the title, not the release date, lolz.) It takes place in Vegas and is about Magnus being assigned a new blood mate, much to Sunny's dismay...and suspicion.

Anyway, thanks again for helping spread the word. Keep up the good work - I'm going to need you now more than ever when the re-releases start coming out. We've got to show the world that this is a series to be noticed! know...we do want a book #5, right?!?! ;-)
