Blog Contest Reveals Title of Sophomore Novel
First-time author Christine Johnson’s novel, Claire de Lune, about a teenage werewolf, was published by Simon Pulse this past May, and because of the positive responses the book received among book bloggers, Johnson held a contest for bloggers to win the chance to announce the title of the book’s sequel, as well as a prize pack of books and other items. Eighty-five bloggers entered the contest, and the winning blogger, Cherry Mischievous, announced the title (Nocturne) earlier this week. Nocturne will be published in May 2011. Photo: Joy Oxenrider.
