Insatiable

December 2nd, 2009

Busted!

I was kind of trying to keep a low profile about my adult Summer 2010 release because

a) I’m still tweaking it (it’s kind of hard to finish a book when your husband breaks his ankle!), and

b) I have two other releases (Glitter Girls and Runaway) before it even comes out!

But I guess it showed up in some catalog somewhere, because 30,000 people have emailed me about it already this week!

So, yes, hopefully if I finish tweaking on time, I finally have a new adult book coming out in July 2010 called Insatiable.

(Don’t worry: I’m working on a new Heather Wells mystery, too!)

Here’s the full disclosure:

Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.

But her boss is making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.

Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die (not that you’re going to believe her. No one ever does).

But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side…a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, Lucien’s already dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future….

If she even has one.

The cover you’re seeing all over the Internet is just a placement cover for the catalog, meaning it may not be the final cover.

This book is actually a modern sequel to Bram Stoker’s Dracula!

PS: This is the book I was finishing for NaNoWriMo. Congratulations, fellow NaNoWriMoers! Give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back. Whether or not you finished, you tried, and that’s what counts.

Now I’m going to go back to finding my husband some home help, so I can finish editing this book, and maybe eventually turn it in!

I’m glad we got that out of the way, so next time we can talk about Tiger Woods! People keep going, “Did you ‘Tiger Woods’ your husband? Is that how he broke his elbow AND his ankle in one year?” I didn’t, I swear! He’s just very active.

But thanks so much for asking about Insatiable. I’m so grateful that you care! And I really can’t wait for you to read it! I think you’re going to like it.

More later.

Much love,

Meg
