Rhiannon Frater is the award-winning author of the As the World Dies trilogy.

Happy New Year!!!! BRING IT ON, 2010!!!

I have to say 2009 was an AMAZING year.

Just a quick rundown of the year’s highlights:

  • As The World Dies: The First Days is nominated for the Dead Letter Award for Best Book (Fiction)
  • It wins the award.
  • As The World Dies: Fighting to Survive comes out in March to great sales
  • I am contacted about the TV/Film rights in May
  • After two tries, I find my entertainment lawyer, Barr Potter, and he negotiates the TV/Flim rights.
  • As The World Dies: Siege comes out in August, one year to the day the first book came out. Sales and fan reaction is very positive
  • I am contacted by a publisher one day before I leave to Horror Realm inquiring about the books
  • I am a guest at Horror Realm and sit on my first author panel
  • The TV/Film option is signed at Horror Realm. The producer throws a big party to celebrate
  • Barr and I listen to the pitch made by the publishing house. I ask him to look into my other options before I make a choice.
  • The Foundry in New York City becomes interested in my work. Within a month, I have signed on with Hannah Gordon to represent me.
  • The Tale of the Vampire Bride is released by the Library of Horror Press. Despite no real promotion yet, the sales are solid.
  • Pretty When She Dies: A Vampire Novel comes under consideration for a possible film.
  • Two short stories appear in two anthologies: Zombology 1 and Wolves of War

Add in all the interviews I did, the other writers I met, the fans I have gained, and the books brisk sales, this has been an AMAZING year.

I loved you dearly, 2009, but it is now time to move on. Thank you for ALL the fabulous memories.

2010….bring it on, baby. I’m ready!
