Yes, there's a third book in the series! Plus, three short stories in 2010

One of the questions I've been asked a bunch lately is what's next.  I'll update my website soon, but here's the scoop: there's a third book in the series and it should be coming out in Spring 2011.  It's already written and the title is The Dark and Hollow Places.  I've seen a cover comp and in total love -- can't wait until I'm able to share it!

I also have three short stories set in the World after the Return (the same world as The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead-Tossed Waves).

Antho title: Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love
Antho editor: Trisha Telep
Release date: July 27, 2010
Short story title: Hare Moon
Short story description: my story is about Sister Tabitha from The Forest of Hands and Teeth when she was Mary's age.  It answers a few more questions about the village, the Sisterhood and Tabitha's motivation.  As it turns out, she was quite the passionate teen :)





Antho title: The Living Dead 2
Antho editor: John Joseph Adams
Release date: September 2010
Short story title: Flotsam & Jetsam
Short story description: right around the time of the Return, when no one really knows what's going on, a group of seniors go on their senior cruise and infection breaks out on the ship.  Two boys escape in a life raft -- one of them's infected.






Antho title: Zombies vs. Unicorns
Antho editors: Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier
Release date: September 21, 2010
Short story title: Bougainvillea
Short story description: set about ten years after the Return on the island of Curacao, a girl discovers what it takes to survive as pirates threaten.

I'm so glad to have the title to the third book. I knew there HAD to be more, but was so terrified there might not be. And knowing about the short stories can tide me over. Phew.

PS - you said on twitter you were coming to New Orleans. I don't suppose it was for a signing? :-(

Just finished "The Dead-Tossed Waves." 0-o

I need, need, need the next book now! I must confess I was disappointed when I began the book because I wanted Mary's story to continue right where it left off, but this book was just as fantastic. Loved it!!

Does reading The Living Dead 2 or Zombies vs. Unicorns, help explain how the whole Return happened?

Also, I'm reading The Dead-Tossed Waves and Oh.My.Gosh it is so intense! :)
Will The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy become a movie?

I just barely finished ready The Forest of Hands and Teeth, and let me say I was very mad that Travis and Jed are gone, especially Travis. I thought the story was to be about Mary and Travis and their love and surviving and finding the ocean. I almost don't even want to read the second book because of it. Is it even about Mary still or is it a whole other story? Will I find out what happened to Cass Harry Jacob and Argos?
