Try to Remember, Van Alen Legacy Comes out in September (2009)….

I just heard from my editor at Hyperion that BLUE BLOODS IV: THE VAN ALEN LEGACY has a pub date! It will be out September 1, 2009. Yay!!! I love the month of September, especially since it’s my birth-month.

Plus there are so many fun songs with September in them, like “Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh, so mellow….” (from the Fantasticks, but here’s one where the fabulous Julie Andrews sings it) and Earth Wind and Fire’s “Do you remember the 21st night of september? Love was changing the minds of pretenders, while chasing the clouds away…” (all together now “da da da… say that you remember da da da…dancing in september…da da da…chasing the clouds awaaaayyyy….”). Good stuff!

And here’s some other fun stuff. Here’s the synopsis and cover for Girl Stays in the Picture. Isn’t that such a great cover??? I love how hot she looks.


If you can’t be a mega-selling teen pop star, maybe you can join her entourage…

Devon—one name only, please—-is the latest and jail-bait-est pop star to hit #1 on the Billboard charts and she’s making her big screen debut in “Juicy”. But after a stint in rehab, the studio isn’t so sure she’s their girl anymore. If they cut any more of her lines, she’ll be a silent film actress! Can Devon regain her star status? She needs to watch her back and make sure that flash doesn’t catch her causing a scene, and we don’t mean the kind you can yell “Cut!” after.

Livia has lost the weight and gained a reputation for attitude in the Hollywood party scene. Her dad’s an Oscar-winning producer, and with a hot Beverly Hills boyfriend on her arm as well as her photos all over the pages of, Livia looks like she has a perfect life. But looks can be perfectly deceiving…

And there’s fresh-faced Casey, who left a job bagging groceries at the Piggly Wiggly to play personal assistant to her best friend….and Devon’s biggest rival. She’s got the biggest crush on the biggest star of the film—a hot Brit known for loving and leaving them. Will Casey stay true to herself while trying to find a place in his universe?

Stars. They’re just like us. But what does that mean for the rest of us? Stay tuned, people.

(I still can’t get those September songs out of my head!)
