Jacket covers from Taylor Stevens'

The Informationist, Taylor Stevens' debut thriller, has been optioned for a film by director James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) who was attacted to the smart and indomitable heroine, Vanessa "Michael" Munroe.  Of Munroe's character, USA Today writes that she "evokes the spirit and intelligence of the gutsy, damaged Salander [from Stieg Larsson's books]."  Good news for readers if you like this character; Stevens plans a seven-book series for her - The Innocent (#2) has already been published, and The Doll (#3) is due to be published in June 2013.  Other news has it that Lionsgate has recently closed a deal with Amor Towles to adapt his book Rules of Civility to the big screen.  Stay tuned!
