Richelle Mead, author of my favourite YA series, and two amazing adult series has awesome and much wanted news on her blog today.
Vampire Academy has been optioned for adaption to the big screen!! This does not mean it will become a film, or if it does, that it'll happen any time soon, but it does mean a production company has the rights to it now. Which is a step in the right direction. I am thrilled about this news because I think it really, really deserves the recognition that comes with being a film as well. So I have my fingers crossed that it actually does get made, at some point in the not too distant future. If you've not tried the Vampire Academy series yet, then you are missing out on an immense series. It's gritty, dark and with just the right touch of wit. It is a YA series, but one that should appeal just as much to adults as well. No idiot whiny girls here, this one totally kicks a$$! Check out Richelle's site: http://www.richellemead.com for more details and excepts from the series, and her others.
Also, the final Georgina Kincaid book has a title now: Succubus Revealed! Which I love. Is a great title given how much needs explaining... And a release date: September 2011. A very long wait, but I have no doubt it'll be worth it.
Full details of the news, along with release dates for the next several of Richelle's books are in her post here.
