The new book is very definitely titled Blood and Flowers and (this is so cool) my editor just tweeted that it was one of the Winter list books that she loves! It looks like it may be out around March 2011, and since we just went through a round of copyedits that’s probably about right.
When it’s released, Serendipity Market will be re-released in paper with some extras, so it’ll be worth buying again — do it even if you’ve already got a copy!
I’m going to be speaking to 7th and 8th graders in Normal, IL in May at the Illinois Young Authors Conference. These guys have had their writing chosen in contests throughout the state — it should be fun. Perhaps pictures will even be coming.
