Welcome to my own little corner of cyberspace for all things Stephanie Plum and much, much more. I absolutely love - Okay, I'm completely obsessed with- Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. After diligent searching for anything Plum on the internet, I discovered that the Stephanie 411 was next to nil. So this is my own little contribution to the lingerie buyer turned bounty hunter world of Stephanie Plum whose lot in life is to choose between two blindingly delicious, strong, sexy men; escape the occasional car fire; and refrain from the temptations of a delectible boston creme donut threatening to widen her waistline.

Welcome to Stephanie's Obsession! Please Enjoy!

Janet Evanovich Switches Literary Houses and Signs on for Four New Books

Janet Evanovich is moving to Random House!  According to http://www.usatoday.com/, Janet has signed on at Random House and will be writing 4 new novels, 2 of which are in the Stephanie Plum series!!

"NEW YORK (AP) — Here's a publishing plot twist: One of the book world's top moneymakers, Janet Evanovich, has switched literary homes.

The author of the multimillion-selling "Stephanie Plum" series and other popular mystery novels has left her longtime publisher, St. Martin's Press, and joined the Random House Publishing Group.

Random House announced Monday that Evanovich has agreed to write four new novels, including two Stephanie Plum releases. She will publish through the Random House imprint Ballantine Bantam Dell.

"I started my career as a Bantam author, and I'm very excited to be returning," Evanovich, 67, said in a statement. "Their sales, distribution, and marketing make them the perfect partner for me and my work. Load up the U-Haul; break out the pizza and the beer — it's moving day."

St. Martin's publisher Matthew Shear said in a statement: "We've had a good relationship and I truly am sorry that we're unable to come to terms. But it's a negotiation like anything else and it didn't work. And I hope it works well for her elsewhere."

Financial terms were not disclosed, although Evanovich's book deal is likely worth tens of millions of dollars.
Evanovich's books have sold more than 75 million copies worldwide."

So what do you think guys? Good move? Bad move? Take Stephanie Plum any way that I can get them?


  1. Good move. Maybe. I love St. Martins Press but you have to do what you think is best for your career as an author. Janet is a smart woman from what I can tell so we shouldn't worry too much. :)

  2. I agree! I'm sure she had good reasons for switching over to Random House. I'm sure those reasons had several zeros behind it too.
