DIE FOR ME Hops the Pond

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!

    …and I thought you were going to mention Prince William’s engagement with Kate M.

    Didn’t you know, Etienne…Kate M’s mom actually named her after my character? Um…20-something years before I even thought her up. Oh, damn.

    This is really just thrilling! Not being a writer, myself, I can say that if I recognize the names of publishing companies, then they must be big ones :)) And I sure recognize Harper Collins and Little,Brown!

    I showed off your cover to my French classes last week… they’re going to want autographed copies 🙂

    Wow, Little Brown AND an Edward comparison?! I need to meet this revenant, Vincent!

    How fun, Judith! I’m about to post a French translation of my inner flap copy on my “Books” page – maybe they would have fun figuring it out? Thanks for the great publicity! 🙂

    And Beth, merci!

    Congratulations on the UK release!
    I was wondering if you knew if DIE FOR ME was being published in Australia?
    I so so cannot wait to read it!!

    Hi Aliena,

    Thanks for your note. Yes!!! DIE FOR ME will be published in Australia and New Zealand by Little, Brown. I would expect that if it is being released in May 2011 in England, the same release date will hold for Australia, but check Little, Brown / Atom’s site in the future to confirm. I sure wish I could come there for a book signing! Best – Amy
