NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR RELEASES NEW FANTASY NOVEL, “RISE OF THE POISON MOON”

“Poison Moon” is the fifth book in the Jennifer Scales series from MaryJanice Davidson and Anthony Alongi

MINNEAPOLIS – July 27, 2010 – Hot off the heels of a recent number 15 New York Times best-seller, Minnesota author, MaryJanice Davidson, released “Rise of the Poison Moon: A Jennifer Scales Novel” today. “Poison Moon” is the fifth book in the teen weredragon Jennifer Scales series, which is co-authored with Davidson’s husband and writing partner, Anthony Alongi.

 

The series protagonist, Jennifer Scales, turns into a dragon every crescent moon – and her kind is depending on her as a figure of destiny. Through her ordeals, Scales never stops being a teenager; she still cares about her friends, argues with her family, breaks up and makes up with her boyfriend(s) and occasionally gets a geometry paper done.


In “Poison Moon,” Scales is forced to face-off against her ex-boyfriend, the emerging leader of the few werachnids left in the world. Skip’s powers appear to extend to the moon, giving it a sickly hue. With the dragons on her side, Jennifer fights back against a Poison Moon that would bring a new age of arachnid dominance.


“I loved the idea of a claustrophobic fantasy novel...weredragons and werearachnids and beatstalkers, all penned up together beneath a dome,” said Davidson. “No way out and, more problematic, no way in. And it gets COLD in Minnesota...and they’ve already endured one winter beneath the thing.”


All of the Jennifer Scales novels including the first four titles, “Jennifer Scales and the Ancient Furnace,” “Jennifer Scales and the Messenger of Light,” “The Silver Moon Elm: A Jennifer Scales Novel” and “Seraph of Sorrow: A Jennifer Scales Novel” are published by Berkley Books.


On July 6, 2010 the ninth book in Davidson’s Undead series, “Undead and Unfinished”, was release and reached number 15 on the New York Times best-seller list.

NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR MARYJANICE DAVIDSON TO RELEASE "UNDEAD AND UNFINISHED" JULY 6

New title is ninth book in best-selling series featuring vampire queen Betsy Taylor


maryjanice-davidson-undead-and-unfinished
MINNEAPOLIS – July 6, 2010—New York Times and USA Today best-selling author MaryJanice Davidson will release Undead and Unfinished on July 6, 2010. Coming off the wildly successful Undead and Unwelcome, which reached number 14 on the New York Times best-seller lists, Undead and Unfinished is the ninth book in the paranormal romance series featuring vampire queen Betsy Taylor.

The Undead series follows Betsy Taylor as she reluctantly reigns over the undead world. Betsy would much rather spend her time shopping for new designer shoes, but the vampire community sees her as their prophesied queen. There is one good thing about being queen of the undead… oh-so-sexy vampire king Eric Sinclair!


Undead and Unfinished finds Betsy striking a deal with the devil. Betsy can get the ability to read the Book of the Dead without going insane and finally discover all the dark mysteries it holds, but first she has to go to Hell. It turns into a time traveling journey filled with risky encounters where Betsy gets more than she bargained for. As she interacts firsthand with her past generations, Betsy’s meddling will impact the future in ways she does not yet understand.


“I truly think this is the book my readers have been waiting for. It’s over a hundred pages longer than any other Undead book...the number one complaint I get from readers is, ‘too short!’. So there it is. Undead and Unfinished. So everybody just calm down.”


Beginning with Undead and Unwed in 2004, the previous eight books in MaryJanice’s series have landed on bestseller lists including Publishers Weekly, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal. MaryJanice is still on top of the paranormal romance genre and has been lauded by The Southwest Florida News-Press for her “smart, sarcastic, frequently profane, and manically inventive” heroine Betsy Taylor. All nine Undead books have been published by Berkley Sensation.
