O-M-G… yeah… Laini Taylor not only has a new book deal, but it is for THREE books. Whether these are connected, not sure yet, but here’s the description Laini is giving for the first book, The Muse of Nightmares:
“I’m excited beyond belief to have found the proper form, at last, for this story that’s been in my head for about two decades. I can’t say much about it, but I’ll say this: it’s about otherness, and yearning to belong in a place you never can. I can only hope that readers will respond to these new characters with the same passion as they have to Karou and Brimstone, Prague and Eretz.”
The Muse of Nightmares doesn’t come out until Fall 2016 with the other two books coming out over the span of the five years after. Good news though her Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy has been optioned for film. Universal Pictures with Joe Roth set to produce has picked it up.
Also, on this July 7th, the paperback release of Dreams of Gods & Monsters, the epic conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy, fans will be able to journey back to Eretz. Readers can unlock an exclusive, never-before-seen genesis chapter by Laini Taylor (written on the very first day Karou and Brimstone danced into her mind) by tweeting their favorite quotes from the Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy throughout the month of June. Tag all tweets with #UnlockLainiTaylor. Once 613 hashtags have been reached (the total page count for Dreams of Gods & Monsters), Little, Brown Books for Young Readers will reveal the exclusive chapter via theNOVL.com, the imprint’s YA fan community website.
Even more exciting, get ready for the best Christmas gift because Little, Brown will publish The Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy Paperback Gift Set on October 20, 2015. Pretty cool, yeah?! Best gift ever.
