Best-selling teen author Alyson Noël posted today on her blog that she's got a new series in the works called The Soul Seekers. Noël is the author of the popular Immortals series, about a girl who can "see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch." She's also written books outside of the series, including the romantic Fly Me to the Moon, "a Grey's Anatomy of the skies."
The new series will take place in the Southwest and it's about a sixteen year old girl who is able to walk among the Underworld, the Upperworld, and the dead.I will begin research/writing the first book sometime this winter (must finish UNTITLED IMMORTALS #6 first!), and it will be in stores probably sometime around early 2012.
The series went to St. Martin's for a whopping 7 figures—further proof that supernatural teen fiction isn't going anywhere. In fact, we are addressing this topic in tomorrow's edition of BookPage Reading Corner, our twice-monthly children's/teen e-newsletter filled with author interviews, book reviews and giveaways.
