Well, it seems I’ve mentioned it several other places…but not here. Which is rather silly, but we won’t go into that now. Instead, let’s focus on the good news: we have a title and a release date for my next book!
The title was hard–try as I might, I couldn’t come up with anything beyond the working title I’d been using for more than a year–Magic in Season, that is. But thanks to my editor and her assistant and all the other smart people at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers, we have (cue drumroll)…
Courtship and Curses
I think it’s wonderful–it echoes Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, and since this story is set firmly in England’s Regency period, then that’s pretty darned good company to keep.
And as for the release date? Look for Courtship and Curses to be hitting shelves early in August 2012…perfect for a last end-of-the-summer read. I hope you’ll enjoy it–although it includes characters who make later appearances in Bewitching Season and Betraying Season, it’s very much its own story and can be read as a stand-alone.
As I get more news, I’ll certainly report it here…but I’m pretty happy for now.
