Ooooh! Check it out!


Lovely Berkley, long time publisher of my Goddess Summoning Books, has decided to reissue all of my back list in trade paperback with amazing new covers! I'm very excited because I know many of you have had trouble finding these books, and now they will be much more widely available. GODDESS OF THE SEA is the first of them, release date October 2nd. I think this is a great intro to my Goddess Summoning Books, especially for the readers of my HOUSE OF NIGHT series, because the heroine, Christine Canady, is the youngest of all of my heroines.

GODDESS OF THE SEA is a cool retelling of the Undine mermaid myth, which is the myth on which Hans Christian Anderson based his LITTLE MERMAID. For those of you familiar with my writing you'll know that 1) MY story will be retold with a strong matriarchal slant. In other words it'll have some serious Girl Power, and 2) my story will have a happy ending. Promise.

Oh, and the hero is a delicious merman!

Look for GODDESS OF SPRING in November - GODDESS OF LIGHT in December - and GODDESS OF THE ROSE in January. Enjoy!

I can never decide if GODDESS OF SPRING or GODDESS OF THE ROSE is my favorite. And then I do heart me some WARRIOR RISING, too! So many goddesses...

Ang from Oz said...

So little time!! I understand. Have to say that I totally enjoyed Warrior Rising, I was sorry it had to end. Which lovely Immortal Warrior will you do next??

People who haven't read these books are MISSING out!

Looks like we're going back to Camelot for the next Goddess Summoning. And you'll have to wait and see if Arthur or Lancelot is the hero...

Ang from Oz said...

PC Cast said...

Dear PC,

My name is Beth Duncan and I am a middle school teacher in Vista, CA. Books and reading are my passion, and I really work hard to share it with my students. I developed a program here in San Diego called Recommended Read. I partner with Barnes and Noble and my students read and review books for them.

This year I have made amazing contacts with many authors- and they have sent my kids ARCs of books to read and review for the release date. Your House of Night series is very popular, especially with my 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students. Would you be willing to send us the ARC Untamed, or Goddess of the Sea, or any of your future books? We would be honored [and totally excited] to review your books.

I'll check your blog for a reply. Thank you so much for writing such wonderful stories.

Sincerely,
Beth Duncan
