So now you know why I’ve been missing in action online for the past few months. I’ve been busy working on this super secret project with Margie for months now — while writing the sequel to UNBREAKABLE. We’ve been keeping this under wraps for SO long, and now we can finally share!
Brendan Reichs, coauthor of the Virals series, summed it up best in his congratulatory tweet:
Excerpt from the Official Press Release:
The Dangerous Creatures series will follow Link and Ridley, two fan-favorite characters from Beautiful Creatures. Readers will catch up with Ethan, Lena, and Link as they graduate from high school and get ready to leave the small Southern town of Gatlin, along with Link’s sometime girlfriend, Ridley. The series will launch on December 17, 2013, with Dangerous Dream, an e-novella that will tie Dangerous Creatures to the world of the original series. Dangerous Creatures, the first book in the new series, will be published simultaneously in hardcover, ebook, and audio formats on May 6, 2014.
“We are ecstatic with the massive success of Beautiful Creatures, which has sold nearly 3.5 million copies to date,” said Megan Tingley. “We’re eager to satisfy Kami and Margaret’s passionate fans with the swift release of a riveting e-novella just in time for the holidays, and a brand-new novel the following spring.”
