Harlequin has signed a six-figure three-book deal with Josh Bank and Hayley Wagreich at Alloy Entertainment (NA) to pen a series of books based on the CW vampire television show The Originals. Margo Lipschultz will edit the books.
The books will consist of entirely new stories about the Original vampire characters, a family of New Orleans vampires that pledged to remain together a thousand years ago.
The books will be published under the Harlequin HQN imprint and are scheduled to hit bookstores in February 2015, April 2015 and June 2015. The timing comes along with the conclusion of the second season of the show.
