BLOOD ORANGES update

Because it was announced yesterday in Publishers Marketplace, here's the scoop on Blood Oranges. We sold it to Penguin, as the first book a three-book deal. So, it's a done. Yes, I'm committing sequel, but in the service of subversion. Blood Oranges should be released early in 2013. More details TBA, as they're made available.

This genre needs all the subversion it can get. Wonderful.

Wanting to leave something cogent, pithy, and erudite concerning this news, but really: Woo hoo, Caitlin gets to smack around cliches!

Keep having fun with these books (so cool that that's now plural).

Now I'm just counting down to when someone picks up a copy of it, thinking it is what it's subverting, and then gets a rather nasty shock once they bring it home.

This idea delights me. Thank you.

Oh, I'm with you there...
And, with luck, they'll actually like it.
I may be slightly biased, but it's a fun, nasty, hilarious romp of a book. Blood covered popcorn, and all that...

Truly outstanding news - its kind of like transitioning from infidel to heretic - you have to have a membership card to be a heretic......
