Meg Cabot bullet points

1. Meg Cabot's YA books are moving from HarperCollins to Scholastic*, which means that she's wrapping up her current projects, including the long-running Princess Diaries series. (She's currently editing book nine, and book ten will conclude the series.)

2. According to her press release, Cabot already has three series in the works for Scholastic, including a "tween" series for 8- to 12-year olds, and two trilogies: Abandon**, which is apparently "a dramatic modern retelling of the myth of Persephone", and Airhead, described as "daring, highly entertaining and a new direction for [Cabot]".

3. Her adult books, however, will still be at HarperCollins. (This includes the last two Queen of Babble books and the last Size 12 mystery.) Plus there are still some YA books on the HC docket, including the standalone novel Pants on Fire, the Avalon High mangas, and a supernatural book called Jinx.

*This might be a good move for HER, but it's a pain in the ass for US, as it's very difficult to get review copies from Scholastic. Alas.

**Cabot says that this title has a 100% chance of being banned in Texas, so we're looking forward to reading it.

maybe it was this move that sparked the odd remodel to here website.
