Richelle Mead — who I saw on a vampire lit panel over the weekend at Comic-Con — showed the cover for her VAMPIRE ACADEMY graphic novel, which is coming out next summer.

She also reiterated that the  books — about 17-year-old Rose who is half-human/half-vampire — have been optioned for a film but that’s about it, noting that an option doesn’t mean anything will happen. Mead said she’s leaving the development stuff up to the film folks because that’s what they do best. “I don’t think about films. I just focus on writing the best book right now,” she said.

Up next: She’s working on a six-series spin-off series to VAMPIRE ACADEMY. And book No. 6 in the Georgina Kincaid SUCCUBUS series is due out next year!

This was a really fun panel. There were several authors, including Richelle Mead, who I’d never heard speak before. I’ll have to look for many of these author when they come for book signings locally.
