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) 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. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nocturne)
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 (http://yaaddict.blogspot.com/) 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 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…
