Urban Fantasy News and Tidbits

Chris Marie Green’s Second Vampire Babylon Series
Chris Marie Green’s next book in her Vampire Babylon universe and the beginning of a new series is A Drop of Red (Book 4 - 3/09). She has announced the titles of the next two books in the new series Path of Razors (Book 5 – 8/09) and Deep in the Woods (Book 6).



Title Change for Laurell K. Hamilton’s Next Merry Gentry Novel

Tez Says is always ferreting out the coolest book release information. Previously she reported that the next Merry Gentry novel by Laurell K. Hamilton would be titled Sins of the Flesh. Apparently Amazon U.S. is now listing it as Divine Misdemeanors although Amazon UK and CA show the previous title. Still no mention of either title on Laurell’s blog or website.



Designing Urban Fantasy Covers at Orbit
There is a really fascinating piece about the creative process on how a book cover comes to life over at the Orbit Books website. Lauren Panepinto, Orbit’s creative director reveals all the work that goes into a great cover. It showcases the development of the cover for Jennifer Rardin’s next Jaz Parks (a favourite series) novel Bite Marks.

  3. A blog commenter told me that on LKH's forum, the titles are just "placeholders", as she hasn't even written the book yet. Which makes one wonder why Amazon are even listing them now, if they don't even have any details.

    Have a lovely day! :-)

  4. Witches and magic. Should be a good Renee.

    Thanks Tez, that makes sense. Maybe the Amazon employee that updates the listings is a fan and is doing a little wishful thinking in the name department.
