Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Here is my news:

I have been working on an *entirely new novel*, THE GATHERING DARK, and it will be published by Simon Pulse! It’s scheduled for release in the autumn of 2012, and I am unbelievably freaking excited about it!

What’s it about you ask? This:

Okay, I know that was kind of cryptic. Here’s the blurb from Publisher’s Marketplace:
Christine Johnson’s THE GATHERING DARK, about a gifted pianist who discovers that she and the mysterious boy she’s falling for are part of an alternate world made from dark matter, and in a race of love against fear, she must somehow save her life without losing herself.

Yep. It’s about hot guys and dark matter and music and I am SO. BEYOND. EXCITED. about this book.

*pops champagne* *passes out cupcakes* *dances on table*

Now, excuse me while I get back to writing it!
