Sleuth Or Dare Covers

Last month, I was able to share the news about my middle grade mystery series and the cover for the first book, Partners in Crime. Well, now, I can share all three covers! It's a covernanza! A covercopia! Okay, I'll stop and just show them to you.



Click on any of the images to see them in a larger size.

Partners in Crime releases 5/1/12, Sleepover Stakeout on 6/1/12, and Framed & Dangerous on 7/1/12. And the first two are available for pre-order now!

What do you think of the Sleuth or Dare covers?

Clarity: The TV Series

I have amazing, happy-making news, and I’m going to attempt to remain professional throughout this blog post. Ahem.

Clarity has been optioned for television!

Kim Harrington's CLARITY, in which a teenage girl uses her visions to track a murderer and defend her brother's innocence, to Warner Brothers TV by Shari Smiley at CAA, on behalf of Scott Miller at Trident Media Group.

AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!*

I’ve actually been sitting on this news for months, waiting for things to get signed and official. And every time someone mentioned to me, “I think Clarity would make a great TV show,” I smiled and nodded, but inside I was all ZOMG ME TOO I WISH I COULD TELL YOU MY SECRET BUT I CAN’T.**

And now I can! Yay!

So, this doesn’t mean Clarity will definitely become a show. (BUT HOW FREAKING AWESOME WOULD THAT BE?***) It’s just optioned right now. A gazillion other things have to happen for the show to become reality (like a pilot script, casting, shooting the pilot, a network pick-up, etc.). All these things I know nothing about and have nothing to do with. But, seriously guys, our Clare could not be in better hands. Warner Brothers Television is a TV powerhouse. Their production history includes some of my all-time favorites: The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars, and a gazillion other awesome shows. I am thrilled beyond words.****

Giveaway alert! Closed! Dana is the winner! To celebrate my good news, I’m giving away a signed/personalized hardcover of Clarity to anyone, anywhere. To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know what you think about the possibility of a Clarity TV show. Winner picked at random on 11/22.

*Okay, that wasn’t professional.
**Admittedly, the use of ZOMG isn’t professional either.
***I would be this show’s biggest fangirl.
****I am dancing in my living room.
