Book 5 in German has a title!

Found out the German title for Book 5 today!


Beiß mich, wenn du dich traust

- which, translated, I'm told means:

"Bite me, if you dare!"

So cute! The book will be released in Germany in August. The editor said she loved it - I hope you guys will, too! We're now negotiating Books 6 & 7 in German.

For the rest of you, we're still hanging out, fingers crossed, waiting for my US editor to read Book 5 and hopefully commit to publishing it. Keep spreading the word about the series to your friends - the better it does, the more likely it will continue!

Wow how did you even get them to publish the ones in Germany? I mean if they're doing great there, you'd figure they'd pick it up here. It's already got a sales rank of 16,645 @ barnes and noble. I was born in Germany too bad I cant read it so I can buy the books.

It's likely they'll be picked up here. It's just more of a timing thing. Germany published Book 4 back in the summer, so they're already ahead and have committed to continuing. The US publisher (rightly so in this economy) wanted to wait to see sales for Bad Blood before committing. So I passed in the book to my editor about 2 weeks ago and we're giving her a chance to read it and make her decision.

One thing about the publishing world - things are always slower than you want them to be!!!

I think it's so cool that you write back to your fans! I was wondering if you could recomend which of your other books I should try next. I really really love Rayne's pov! Didn't know if you had any other vampire books. Thanks! I can't wait to see if there is a way for Sun to be immortal.

I am taking german in high school next year so maybe if they books don't continue here (likely they will, they're AWESOME!) I might be able to read the german versions if I get good enough at the language lol u never know I am reading gamer girl now, I got it from my book fair it's really good I love it!!! :)

I haven't been able to put gamer girl down all day long it's getting so good I just finished the part where they have the first meeting of the manga club and like the chapter after that starts when her mom notices she's happy but WOW it's so amazing! I *DID* think that SirLeo was Chad but now I'm pretty sure it's Billy. Will Gamer Girl ever have a sequel? please! :)
