And I have a BIGGGG announcement to make!!

I have the pleasure of the exclusive privilege of being the first to announce the title of Claire de Lune's sequel!! ;)

And the second book of the Claire de Lune's series IS.... (((drum roll)))....


Here is a small blurb from the author about Nocturne:
From Wikipedia - A nocturne (from the French which meant nocturnal, from Latin nocturnus[1]) is usually a musical composition that is inspired by, or evocative of, the night. Historically, nocturne is a very old term applied to night Offices and, since the Middle Ages, to divisions in the canonical hour of Matins. (

So, it’s very fitting, not only in meaning, but also musically, since Debussy wrote both Claire de Lune and also a set of three Nocturnes.

The title was inspired by a suggestion from Jami Slack, who runs YA Addict ( As soon as she said it, I knew it was PERFECT! Luckily, my editor agreed, and now - YAY! I can finally tell everyone.


Yikes!! At the same time as I won the privilege to announce the title of Claire de Lune's sequel, I also won a signed copy of CLAIRE DE LUNE by Christine Johnson and swag!! Couldn't wait to find it in my mail!! *jumping up and down* This wait is worth a Mr. Mailman feature! A kind of "blog meme" started by Juju over at Tales Of Whimsy.

...So sometime soon I am hoping to find CLAIRE DE LUNE by Christine Johnson in the mailbox!! (fingers crossed)

About Mr. Mailman:
Mr. Mailman is a feature Juju decided to try. Periodically when there is a book in route which she is anxiously hoping to find when she gets home to her mailbox - Juju would feature Mr. Mailman.

Mr. Mailman is a hybrid of Waiting on Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and In My Mailbox by the Story Siren. Please feel free to grab the logo and feature your Mr. Mailman request on your site. Please leave a link to your Mr. Mailman request in the comments at Tales Of Whimsy.

Welcome to the Mysterious World of Claire de Lune
Hanover Falls hasn’t had a werewolf problem in over one hundred years. Seattle, Copenhagen, Osaka–they’ve had plenty of attacks. But when humans begin dying in Claire Benoit’s town, the panic spreads faster than a rumor at a pep rally. At Claire’s sixteenth birthday party, the gruesome killings are all anyone can talk about. But the big news in Claire’s mind is the fact that Matthew Engle–high-school soccer god and son of a world-renowned lycanthropy expert–notices her. And flirts with her. A lot…
