Wolves of Mercy Falls 3 is finished!

Just read an interview with Maggie Stiefvater, author of Shiver and Linger. She's finished writing book 3 and it will be called Forever. Can't wait to get more about Sam and Grace. It will be out in July 2011. Much too long to wait.

I was interested to find out that she did quite a bit of research about wolves while writing Shiver. She said that the real research, however, was to develop the medical explanation of the wolves (don't want to give away too much here!). I also found out that she was a musician who counts on music from her iPOD to keep her grounded while writing.  You can read the interview at

Darren Shan writes Cirque du Freak Prequel!

It's the book all you Shan fans have been dreaming of. The Saga of Larten Crepsley tells the story of how Mr. Crepsely became a vampire. Here's what Darren Shan's website says:

Larten Crepsley's life as a human ends one grey day in the factory where he has worked since he was eight years old... and his life as a vampire begins! The first of a four book series, this charts Larten's years as a vampire's assistant, and his formative experiences once he is blooded. We meet some familiar faces from The Saga Of Darren Shan, along with some new characters who were instrumental in his growth. It all starts here!!   

Yesyesyes, it is on the October book order. Duh, 3 copies! Shan also has another book out called The Thin Executioner. It's on order, too.
