UK Publisher Spotlight: Headline


I don't know about you guys, but I love looking forward to new titles coming up. It's not always easy to find out what's due to be published, which is why I thought I'd do a series of UK publisher spotlights. These posts will tell you about upcoming 2010 books, and will include a synopsis and cover image when available (all descriptions and images are from the lovely Sam!).

-----

This week's spotlight is Headline, one of my personal favourite publishers and home to series such as Gossip Girl and It Girl. Some of this info is very early, so not all cover art is available, but here's what they've got coming up in 2010 and 2011...





July 2010



Ghostgirl #3: Lovesick
by Tonya Hurley

Published 8th July 2010, price £9.99

Before she can rest in peace, Charlotte Usher must return to the tragic site of her death: High School.

On the brink of Dead Ed graduation, Charlotte and her fellow classmates learn they have one last mission to complete before gaining entrance to the much-anticipated afterlife: Observe one designated teen with an unexplained problem and help said-troubled teen by Prom.

For the life of her, Charlotte can't imagine why she has been assigned to help Damen, last year's Homecoming King and her former fatal crush. To make matters worse, her boyfriend Eric is sent to look after her best (breathing) friend Scarlet, who has since ditched her goth girl image for a girlier look that turns more heads than just her boyfriend Damen's.

Charlotte would die (again) for love. But when her only chance at an afterlife means having to face the dreaded, all-too-familiar pains of being invisible, it may be too much for her to handle.


August 2010



Ghostgirl #2: Homecoming
by Tonya Hurley
Published 5th August 2010, price £6.99

Charlotte may have graduated Dead Ed but that's not the end of her story

Life, for Charlotte, was one bitter disappointment after another. And it seems death isn't going to be much different. Convinced that graduating Dead Ed was her route to the afterlife Charlotte is a little surprised to find she has to complete an internship!

Answering the phones at a help centre for troubled teens isn't proving brilliantly exciting. Until Scarlet calls: a pedicure-gone-hideously-wrong has landed Petula in a coma and Scarlet thinks Charlotte is the only person who can help...

Glee: The Beginning
Published 5th August 2010, price £6.99

CALLING ALL GLEEKS! Get more of your favourite characters in this official Glee prequel!

All great performances deserve a warm-up! Enroll early at McKinley High to find out what went on before New Directions was even a glimmer in Mr Schuester’s eye. When did Rachel first decide Finn was more than just a jock? When did Puck and Quinn start their secret romance? And how did the fledgling Glee Club function without a fearless leader? Hint: It wasn’t exactly a perfect melody.

Break out the gold stars and refill the slushies: it’s time to find out what happened to all your favourite characters before the show-mance began

These novels contain additional storylines to those featured in the hit TV show.

September 2010



Scarlett Dedd
by Cathy Brett
Published 2nd September 2010, price £6.99

You're dead Scarlett...

Previously a poor taste jibe from school frenemies, now a statement of fact.

Scarlett is absolutely mortified (in more ways than one) to discover that she's accidentally killed herself while trying to get out of a school trip. Even worse, she's taken her entire family with her.

Life as a ghost is pretty dull - if only some of her friends were dead too...
Cathy Brett has been scribbling stuff for more than twenty years - as a fashion illustrator, as a jet-setting spotter of global trends and as a consultant to the behemoths of the British high street. She now lectures in design and unashamedly plunders her students' lives for sensational storylines and characters.



Homelander: The Truth of the Matter
by Andrew Klavan

Published 30th September 2010, price £6.99


'You're a better man than you think...Find Waterman.' are the words that have been keeping Charlie West going ever since his nightmare started. Wanted for murder and implicated in terrorist plots Charlie is on the run from everyone - completely unable to remember what actually happened...

But now he's found Waterman will he finally learn the truth and manage to clear his own name?

This is the third action-packed installment of Klavan's Homelander Series.

November 2010


The Body Finder
by Kimberly Derting
Published 11th November 2010, price £6.99

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies – or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world...and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift, but now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer – and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling in love, Violet is getting closer to discovering a killer...and becoming his prey herself.Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability.

January 2011


I Don’t Want to Kill You
by Dan Wells
Published 6th January 2011, price £6.99

Sixteen-year-old John Wayne Cleaver has always known he’s different, but not because he only has one friend (and doesn’t much like him) and not because he regularly helps out in his mother’s mortuary. He’s different because he recognizes the classic signs of an incipient serial killer in his own personality, and he’s created a rigid set of rules to follow to keep his darker nature, the one he calls Mr Monster in check.
But John discovers it’s the personality traits he so fears that put him in the best position to save the people of his town from a series of horrific and disturbing killers...

I love Headline. They do the covers for my Neil Gaiman books, which I love as they look and feel great.

Lots of amazing books featured here, and I really love this feature of yours as well! :D

Book Monster said...

I haven't finished reading the first Ghost Girl book, but I do love the writing/ style of the book.

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

Wow, so many amazing books! I'm really looking forward to The Body Finder, Glee and Lex Trent 2. I really love these posts, Jenny!

Leanna (Daisy Chain Book Reviews) said...

Great to see The Body Finder & Desires of the Dead are being published in the UK. I loved, loved, loved The Body Finder. Everybody needs to read it!

I Want To Read That said...

OOh I really look forward to these post! Can't wait for the new Dan Wells and WIntercraft 2. Love the sound of Scarlett Dedd and I keep looking at the GhostGirl books - think I need to track down the hardbacks though as the print in the paperbacks is teeny. Can't wait to see what cover they do for The Body Finder:)

Mrs. DeRaps said...

I am a total Gleek! Thanks for the heads-up!

Lauren said...

Awesomeness! I'm holding my breath for The Body Finder and the next Wintercraft book. Can't wait for these. :D

Sasha said...

I'm excited for Ghostgirl 3 and the two Kimberely Derting books! Great to know they're being published here :)

Jesse Owen said...

Woo - a Glee book (I think I must just have to get it when it comes out). Also really looking forward to Wintercraft 2.

Luisa at Chicklish said...

Great post! I'm really looking forward to Scarlett Dedd.

Ladybug said...

Scarlett Dedd sounds like fun and the Glee prequel of course =D

I have Wintercraft in my TBR pile so in a short while I'll know if I'm looking forward to Blackwatch.

Cool! Author the best! Thank you!

I mean, Violet is an idiot at some parts and totally that character you yell at in a horror movie. But she’s not a Mary Sue. She acts like a regular teen despite her ability. Also, she has friends outside of her crush/love interest and spends time with them. I love that we actually got a scene where Violet and her friends go shopping for the big dance, because that is such a normal teenage thing to do. And well, it’s nice to see pieces of normality in a paranormal book.

Neil Richard Gaiman ( /ˈɡeɪmən/;[3] born 10 November 1960[4]) is an English author of short fiction, novels, comic books, graphic novels, audio theatre and films. His notable works include the comic book series The Sandman and novels Stardust, American Gods, Coraline, and The Graveyard Book. Gaiman's writing has won numerous awards, including Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker, as well as the 2009 Newbery Medal and 2010 Carnegie Medal in Literature. He is the first author to win both the Newbery and the Carnegie medals for the same work.

Gaiman's family is of Polish and other Eastern European Jewish origins;[6] his great-grandfather emigrated from Antwerp before 1914[7] and his grandfather eventually settled in the Hampshire city of Portsmouth and established a chain of grocery stores.[8] His father, David Bernard Gaiman,[9] worked in the same chain of stores;[8] his mother, Sheila Gaiman (née Goldman), was a pharmacist. He has two younger sisters, Claire and Lizzy.[10]

After living for a period in the nearby town of Portchester, Hampshire, where Neil was born in 1960, the Gaimans moved in 1965 to the West Sussex town of East Grinstead where his parents studied Dianetics at the Scientology centre in the town.[11] They remained closely involved with Judaism; Gaiman's sister later said, "It would get very confusing when people would ask my religion as a kid. I’d say, 'I’m a Jewish Scientologist.'"[11] Gaiman says that he is not a Scientologist.

Gaiman was able to read at the age of four. He said, "I was a reader. I loved reading. Reading things gave me pleasure. I was very good at most subjects in school, not because I had any particular aptitude in them, but because normally on the first day of school they'd hand out schoolbooks, and I'd read them--which would mean that I'd know what was coming up, because I'd read it."[2] One work that made a particular impression on him was J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings from his school library, although it only had the first two books in the trilogy. He consistently took them out and read them. He would later win the school English prize and the school reading prize, enabling him to finally acquire the third book in the trilogy

For his seventh birthday, Gaiman received C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia series. He later recalled that "I admired his use of parenthetical statements to the reader, where he would just talk to you...I'd think, 'Oh, my gosh, that is so cool! I want to do that! When I become an author, I want to be able to do things in parentheses.' I liked the power of putting things in brackets."
