AROUND THE WEB
:: Heidi Rice revealed the cover for her July Harlequin Presents, ONE WILD NIGHT WITH HER ENEMY, and it is a beauty. You can see that cover here.
:: CLARICE, the TV adaptation of Thomas Harris’s SILENCE OF THE LAMBS premiered on Feb. 11th on CBS. If you missed it, you can find it on CBS All Access. Having recently read the book and being a big fan of the movie, I loved the premiere and thought it tied in well to both book and movie. The actress playing Clarice Starling, Rebecca Breeds, did a phenomenal job carrying on the torch from Jodie Foster.
:: Jay Kristoff revealed the cover for his September release, EMPIRE OF THE VAMPIRE, and I am in love, you guys. The cover is amazing and the story sounds awesome. You can see the cover here.
:: Meredith Ireland revealed the cover for her upcoming debut release, THE JASMINE PROJECT. You can see that cover here.
:: Katee Robert revealed the cover for her upcoming release, COHEN. You can see that cover here.
:: Zoraida Córdova revealed the cover for her next release, THE INHERITANCE OF ORQUIDA DIVINA. You can see that cover here.
:: Gabrielle Zevin has sold the movie rights to her upcoming novel, TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW, to Paramount Pictures.
