"With a REBEL BELLE, She Cried, 'Books, Books, Books...'"

Remember that KILLER good news I mentioned in my last blog post? Well, said good news posted in Publisher's Marketplace last night! BEHOLD:

Author of HEX HALL Rachel Hawkins's REBEL BELLE, about a high school Miss Popularity whose world changes when a funny thing happens on the way to the (Homecoming) coronation: she's recruited into the Paladins, a supernatural sect of bodyguards sworn to protect those who will play an important role in the future, and charged with saving her archnemesis even if it means sacrificing her place as queen bee, to Ari Lewin at Disney-Hyperion, in a three-book deal, in a major deal, by Holly Root at Waxman Literary Agency (NA).

HUZZAH! Needless to say, I am SO EXCITED to keep working with all the fabulous people at Disney-Hyperion, and I'm so, so thankful to the Always Rock Staralicious Agent Holly for making all this happen!

And I'm ESPECIALLY excited that REBEL BELLE will actually be out in the world! In case you can't tell from the description up there, this book Brings the Wacky. I mean, if you liked HEX HALL, you'll like REBEL BELLE since it brings similar things to the yard, as it were (The Funny! Gory Deaths! "I Hate That I Like You, But Dammit, We Need To Make Out RIGHT NOW"-esque Romance!), but there's definitely a little more silliness in REBEL BELLE. I mean, someone gets murdered with a shoe within the first 30 pages. Come on.


Specifically, this shoe, the image of which is saved as "Murder Shoe" on my computer.

There are also car chases, and possessed teachers, a Debutante Ball with a pretty high body count, and a nerdy-yet-surprisingly-hot love interest. All in all, I had a RIDICULOUS amount of fun writing it, and I hope that all of you will have just as much fun reading it, whenever it actually comes out! (And no, I have no idea when that will be. Could be between DEMONGLASS and HEX HALL 3, could be after the HEX HALL series is finished. Either way, it won't interfere with those books' release dates, so no worries on that front!)

Again, HUGE PINK PUFFY HEARTED THANKS to every at Hyperion, and Agent Holly, and everyone who bought HEX HALL, thus meaning my publisher wanted to buy more of my insane-o books. You all rock!

This is so amazing! I can't wait! Congratulations! And that shoe is FAB!! I hope it doesn't get too bloody in the murder scene. Or at the very least that it can be dry-cleaned and worn again.
