Andrea Cremer Inks Erotica Book Deal

YA author Andrea Cremer has landed a book deal with Penguin Group (USA)’s Dutton imprint to write an erotica trilogy for adults. The not-yet-titled first book will be available in October 2013.

Cremer established her career as a YA author with the Nightshade trilogy, a fantasy series starring teen werewolves. The new adult books will be set in this Nightshade universe.

According to Publisher’s Weekly, Dutton publisher Brian Tart negotiated the deal with InkWell Management literary agents Richard Pine and Charlie Olsen. Associate editor Jessica Horvath will edit the books.

Fan fiction writers have certainly been known to add an erotic spin to some of their favorite books. What do you think?

Philomel Books, an imprint at Penguin Young Readers Group, published all three original Nightshade books. In August, Cremer will release a Nightshade prequel called Rift. A second prequel called Rise will follow in summer 2013. Prior to her full-time writing career, Cremer worked as a history professor. (Photo Credit: Gina Monroe)
