Kiersten White, author of Paranormalcy, shares an excerpt on her blog.

Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler has an official release date: October 18, 2010.
  • From back-cover:

"Thou art the Black Rider. Go thee out unto the world."

Lisabeth Lewis has a black steed, a set of scales, and a new job: she's been appointed Famine. How will an anorexic seventeen-year-old girl from the suburbs fare as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Traveling the world on her steed gives Lisa freedom from her troubles at home: her constant battle with hunger, and her struggle to hide it from the people who care about her. But being Famine forces her to go places where hunger is a painful part of everday life, and to face the horrifying effects of her phenomenal power. Can Lisa find a way to harness that power - and the courage to battle her own inner demons?

The Witch's Alphabet by Caitlin Kittredge has been re-named to The Iron Thorn. You can read more about it here.

Author Victoria Schwab has a new website, http://www.victoriaschwab.com/.

For those of you attending BEA this year and may have questions, check out this blog tour that is currently running!

Richelle Mead's Georgina Kincaid series are getting makeovers. Succubus Blues will be available in August 2010 with the new cover design.

Hey! Thanks for linking to my blog! But I thought I should clarify--that excerpt is NOT from Paranormalcy! It was actually a joke because I had talked about writing a Yeti-Leprechaun paranormal romance. There are no yetis or leprechauns in Paranormalcy, but if there were, I'm pretty sure they would have a great kissing scene ; )

Yay YA book bloggers!
