I’m thrilled to tell you that my UK publisher will be *drumroll* … Little, Brown!
Specifically, the DIE FOR ME series will published by Atom, which is the YA imprint of Little, Brown Book Group, and which is known, amongst many other stellar things, for being the UK publisher of Stephenie Meyer’s TWILIGHT series.
And upon that note, my new editor, Samantha Smith, happened to mention the following during the negotiations:
“…speaking of fond, I think Vincent is giving Edward a serious run for his money in the hearts of the Little, Brown ladies!”
That compliment alone is enough to keep me smiling for weeks.
Atom will release DIE FOR ME in the UK on the same day that HarperTeen publishes it in the U.S. (May 2011), for an international English release. I’m so honored!
