Flux taps literary agent Diver's novel 'Vamped' for May release
Edited Press Release
Lucienne Diver, a
book addict who went to work for Spectrum Literary Agency fifteen years
ago to feed her habit, says she has traded in her high-rise for a lake
view and written a cheeky novel "Vamped" that publisher Flux has slated
for release on May 1, 2009. Flux is a new imprint geared to teen
and young adult readers.
Diver now lives
in Florida and works for The Knight Agency. Through various play-dates
and in various coffee bars, on the backs of envelopes, carry-out bags
and anything else within reach, including, sometimes, her checkbook,
she wrote Vamped as a serio-comic tale of what happens when a young
fashionista goes from chic to eek.
Diver sent an advance excerpt of Vamped to WORD'N'BASS to give readers
an idea of what to expect from her upcoming novel. From a section
titled "Valley Vamp Rules for Surviving Your Senior Prom" by Vamped
heroine Gina Covello:
Rule # 1: Do not get so loaded
at the after prom party that you accidentally-on-purpose end up in the
broom closet with the surprise hottie of the evening, say the class
chess champ who’s somewhere lost his bottle-cap lenses and undergone an
extreme mak eover, especially if that makeover has anything to do with
becoming one of the undead.
Gina Covello has a problem. Waking up a dead is just the beginning.
There's very little she can't put up with for the sake of eternal youth
Blood-sucking and pointy stick phobias seem a small price to pay. But
she draws the line when local vampire vixen Mellisande gets designs on
her hot new boyfriend with his prophecied powers and hatches a plot to
turn all of Gina’s fellow students into an undead army to be used to
overthrow the vampire council.
Hey, if anyone's going to create an undead entourage, it should be
Gina! Now she must unselfishly save her classmates from fashion
disaster and her own fanged fate.

as well as a blog.
