Freaks: Alive on the Inside by Annette Curtis Klause

Check out the new paperback cover art for Freaks: Alive on the Inside by Annette Curtis Klause (Simon & Schuster, 2006).

Annette says: “I have a large cast of unusual characters in this book , and while the people in my story are imaginary, their physical differences are often inspired by those of people who really lived, and many characters are composites of people I came across in photographs and accounts.”

Read a Cynsations interview with Annette. See the “Blood and Chocolate” (inspired by a 1999 novel by Annette) movie trailer.

Speaking of gothic fantasy, I’m enormously flattered (and rather stunned) by Liz Gallagher’s take on my upcoming Tantalize (Candlewick, Feb. 13, 2007): “Totally Buffy-esque. Of course I thoroughly enjoyed it. Actually, I enjoyed it more than I ever enjoyed ‘Buffy.’ Favorite line: ‘You ate the police?'” Thanks, Liz! Look for Tantalize on pages 26-27 of the Candlewick Spring-Summer 2007 catalog!
