Publishers Weekly reported yesterday that Austen’s “co-author” Seth Graham-Smith has just signed on for two new books. The first will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (be patient; no release date yet). As has been the case with a couple of other recent high-profile books from indie publishers, the author has switched to a bigger house, going from Quirk Books to Grand Central Publishing.

An author whose titles have appeared on the extended Hardcover Fiction several times in the past, makes the leap to #10 on the main list this week with her new book.
