HC Goes Undead in Paris

Tara Weikum at HarperCollins pre-empted world English rights, in a three-book deal, to a new zombie series by debut author Amy Plum. The first book, Sleepwalking, follows a 16-year-old who, after losing her parents, is cast off from her Brooklyn life to live with grandparents in Paris. There she meets, and falls for, a French teen named Vincent, who just happens to be a zombie. Dystel & Goderich’s Stacey Glick, who sold the book, said the series introduces a new kind of zombie mythology in which the undead are “re-animated humans”—they look just like us—and don’t feast on brains but, instead, carry out special missions. She said the Hollywood pitch for the book would be: “Twilight…in Paris…with zombies.” HC is planning Sleepwalking for summer 2011.”

Are you guys freaking out? Because I AM!!! Still…even after knowing for two weeks, I can’t wipe this huge smile off my face.

* You guys know me: I will definitely give you more details.
In fact, I’ll give you the whole story as soon as I find out
how much I’m allowed to tell!

**And for those of you who are saying, “What??? Zombies???”
They are not zombies. They are “revenants”, a new monster of
my own creation. And they don’t have “special missions” on earth.
They have one special mission. And you’re going to love it…
I promise!
