May News!

I think those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are pretty happy right now. Winter is receding (slowly, here where I live), the flowers are in bloom, and everything is fresh. As fresh as our news! (Sorry, Southern Hemisphere folks. We’ll say “it’s all fresh” for you, come November.)

And now, for our glad tidings:

Rosamund Hodge’s book is now officially titled CRUEL BEAUTY, Emily Lloyd-Jone’s book is now called ILLUSIVE, and Jaye Robin Brown’s book is now NO PLACE TO FALL.

Yay for fresh, official titles! (Everyone clap now.)

Elle Cosimano’s NEARLY GONE has a release date of March 25, 2014.

Michelle Krys sold UK rights of HEXED to Random House UK. Her first foreign rights sale!

Corinne Duyvis is in an anthology that is already out! (Her story it titled “The Applause of Others.”) (Link to anthology.)

And we have a few covers to reveal! They’ve been revealed elsewhere, but just in case you haven’t seen the awesomeness yet, here they are:
