Simon & Schuster announced that they signed international Best-selling author Philippa Gregory (author of The Other Boleyn Girl & many others) to a 4 book YA historical romance deal!

On the deal, Philippa Gregory said "I am delighted to move into a new form of writing. I know I have many young readers already and it will be a pleasure to write a series just for them. Bringing history alive is a great joy and to bring it to a young generation doubly so."

That's what I've got today and am happy to share it with you!


  1. Oooh, cool about Phillipa Gregory's new series! I know her stuff isn't the most historically accurate, but The Other Boleyn Girl was so fun and gripping. Thanks for passing on the news!

  2. I've never heard of The Drake Chronicles, but I definitely need to keep an eye out for this!
    Would so love to go to the Dark Days tour, but Arkansas is not on the radar for these events!


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
