News: Atom UK Acquires Blue Bloods Series

Atom UK, publishers of Twilight and the House of Night, have announced their acquisition of Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series. From The Bookseller's news article:

In a six-book deal Atom has acquired the rights for Melissa de la Cruz’s Blue Blood series. Commissioning editor, Samantha Smith bought Commonwealth rights excluding Canada and non-exclusive Europe.

The series is set in an exclusive prep school in New York City. It focusses on Manhattan's most elite families and a secret society of Americans whose ancestors sailed on the Mayflower. They are an ancient group of powerful and wealthy vampires known as 'Blue Bloods'.

Blue Bloods and Masquerade, the first two books in the series, will be published in March 2010, followed by books three and four, Revelations and The Van Alen Legacy in April. A fifth book, which is yet untitled, will be published in the autumn.

I can't wait for these, I've wanted to read them for ages. Yay for Atom!

Ooh, nice! It's an interesting series. Did you ever put up a post about the new Private covers, or was I silly and missed it?
