So here is some news about my next project that I have that just went up in Publishers Marketplace!
Courtney Summers’s PLEASE REMAIN CALM, an e-novella sequel to her zombie novel THIS IS NOT A TEST, about the remaining survivors from the first novel, discovering just how high the cost of death is in a post-apocalyptic landscape, to Sara Goodman at St. Martin’s, by Amy Tipton at Signature Literary Agency (World English).
I think THIS IS NOT A TEST is the novel I get the most sequel requests for and I honestly don’t know what those characters did to deserve that after the hell I put them through, but I’m grateful for the expressed interest in the ones who made it out—yes, you will see familiar faces—and all the terrible things that might happen to them next. (Things are going to get very bad.) (MORE ZOMBIES!) I’ll share more details when I have them. But I am very excited and I hope you are too. I am so glad my editor and agent didn’t blink the first time I told them I wanted to write zombies or the second time, either.
BY THE WAY. If you haven’t read THIS IS NOT A TEST, there’s no time like the present! It’s about a girl named Sloane who intends to kill herself the morning the zombie apocalypse starts. She ends up trapped in her high school with six other survivors instead. Think THE WALKING DEAD meets THE BREAKFAST CLUB. (I might be biased but I think it is a great read if are waiting on S5 of TWD.) You can find out more about it—excerpt, reviews, book trailer—at http://courtneysummers.ca/novels/this-is-not-a-test
