It's Official!



Okay, being the superstitious, jinx fearing person that I am-- I was truly chomping at the bit to tell you this-- yet knowing better than to put the cart before the horse or count those eggs before they hatch--I (not so) patiently waited for the official posting in Publisher's Marketplace--and since that just so happened to show up today-- here goes----(feel free to insert drum roll here):

I recently agreed to another two book deal with my awesome editor, Rose Hilliard, at St. Martin's Press!!!

Or, as officially stated in P.M.-

"FAKING 19 and SAVING ZOE author Alyson Noel's MY IMMORTAL, to Rose Hilliard at St. Martin's, in a two-book deal, by Kate Schafer at Janklow & Nesbit (NA).
Translation: kt literary"

Which translates to mean that I am writing a new paranormal series in which the first book will be titled MY IMMORTAL-- and I couldn't be more excited!

I've been interested in all things paranormal ever since I was a little kid (I know that probably sounds weird but I'm dead serious-- yes, pun most definitely intended!), and am actually kind of surprised that I waited this long to write one. But now that I am, I get to delve into all kinds of interesting activities--all under the guise of "research"--including a class with the amazing psychic/medium James Van Pragh!

Yippee!!!

Okay, and soon, very soon, I will post the cover for my next novel, CRUEL SUMMER, (May 2008). I hope you like it as much as I do!

Have a good day everyone!
Alyson

Congrats, Alyson! That's fantastic. And, back in the day, I read two of James Van Pragh's books. A pink one and a blue one if memory serves. Let us know how his class is. Research can be too fun :-)

There's a purple one? Must've come out after I'd read the others. I'm so behind ;-)
