The News That Made Me Giggle and Clap Like a Maniac. (New Trilogy)

It's also the news that's made me blog twice in three days. Which is unheard of, as I am a crappy, crappy blogger. But here it is:

My new trilogy will be published by Tor Teen! ANTIGODDESS (formerly Secret Projects C and S) has found a home with my amazing editor, Melissa Frain.

In case you were wondering, I just yelled that at you, in a crazy, monotone voice. And I apologize. Here's the announcement in PM:

Anna Dressed in Blood author
Kendare Blake's ANTIGODDESS series, where the ancient, perpetually
teenaged Greek gods Athena and Hermes cling to life in the contemporary
world, seeking the causes of their mysterious, slow deaths and gathering
their allies in reincarnated form: Cassandra, an ordinary girl who was
once an extraordinary prophetess; Odysseus, the handsome trickster; and
other fickle characters with their own secret motives; they must all
band together against Hera and Poseidon who have become horrific
caricatures of their former glory in their desperation to survive, again
to Melissa Frain at Tor, in a very nice deal, in a three-book deal, by Adriann Ranta at Wolf Literary Services (World).

That didn't format very well. Anyway, it's a bit of a genre shift, but not completely. For those of you who enjoyed the horrifying elements of Anna Dressed in Blood, I promise, some stuff is still pretty horrifying. Because that's just how I am. Horrifying.

Huge thanks to Adriann, and Mel, and the team at Tor! I am so happy to be working with them!

    I wanted to offer my congratulations – I’m really excited about this series! πŸ™‚

    I just first started reading Anna Dressed in Blood and I am loving it thus far. I wanted to ask, though, about the small reference Cas’ mother made in regards to Birmingham. Which Birmingham do you mean? I’m from Birmingham, Al and we have a rich history although I am sure the other Birminghams (most notably Birmingham UK) have lots of their own ghost stories.

      Hi Ria,

      I’m so sorry about the delayed reply! Livejournal suddenly stopped notifying me of new comments. Must go remedy that.

      In regards to your question, yes, it’s Birmingham, Alabama they’re talking about. You’ve got a rich history indeed πŸ™‚

      I hope you enjoy the rest of the book!
