Hodder & Stoughton has bought 11 titles from Jennifer L Armentrout, including six titles in the Lux series. The other brooks are the paranormal stand-alone Unchained and four adult romance titles in the Gamble Brother series. Hodder already publishes the Covenant series, which has been optioned for television, Cursed, a stand-alone paranormal book and Don’t Look Back, a YA thriller (out this month!) The first five books in the Lux series, the first two books in the Gamble Brother series and the standalone Unchained are slated for UK publication in the first half of 2015.
Katie McGarry has announced that she will be continuing the story of Noah and Echo, the couple who started it all in Pushing the Limits, with a new full length novel called Breaking the Rules. It will be published in December 2014. There will be a brief teaser of Breaking the Rules in the back of Take Me On (release date: May 27, 2014).
I went to the Aurealis Awards over the weekend! Sean from Bookonaut storified the event brilliantly, so I’ll just direct you to this link!
Sean Williams has written a short story based in the same world as his Twinmaker series. It’s called The Cuckoo.
Gollancz has acquired the rights to a novella set in the Kingkiller Chronicles universe by Patrick Rothfuss. It will be called The Slow Regard of Silent Things, and “focuses on one of the most popular and intriguing characters from this world”. It will be published in November 2014 and will be available in both hardback and ebook.
