Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié have been busy! The authors of the New York Times bestselling Wicked series sold the movie rights to the five-book saga back in October (we talked to the authors about that deal here on The Book Case), and book one in their new Crusade series hits stores on September 7. (In our interview in October, Holder described that project: “It’s similar in style and tone to Wicked, but it concerns a band of vampire hunters based in Salamanca, Spain, after the “Cursed Ones” have declared war on the human race. I’m in love with it.”)
And now, the author duo have sold a new werewolf trilogy to Delacorte Press; their previous collaborations have been with Simon Pulse. Called The Wolf Springs Chronicles, the trilogy will be about “broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night,” according to an announcement in Publisher’s Marketplace. The first book will be published in Fall 2011.
