ARCs of ITSB, YALLfest

ARCs of INTO THE STILL BLUE - I signed 200 ARCs for NY Comic Con, so there's your chance to get an advanced copy. I want to thank those of you who have read it for 1) reading it, and 2) keeping spoilers off the internet. Really hope you guys love this one. I think it's my favorite of the three.

YALLfest - I will be in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday, November 9th for YALLfest with a bevy of amazing authors. Come say hi! More info here.

Writing Update - At the moment, I'm working on two manuscripts - the New Adult I mentioned here, and a fantasy series that's bigger and scarier and more epic than anything I've ever undertaken. That one's still under wraps, but hopefully not for much longer. It's a thrill for me to think about sharing different types of writing with you guys. I hope you'll love these new stories as much as the UTNS series.

Speaking of the UTNS Series, have you see that BROOKE is available for preorder? This novella was surprisingly satisfying to write. I already knew Brooke had a lot more to her character than readers had seen, but after drafting this short story, I'm half-tempted to write a spin off series about her... Or maybe some fan-fiction?

Fun little fact about this novella: I based it loosely on Goldilocks and the Three Bears. You'll have to let me know if you pick up on it!

Finally, I noted some thoughts on inspiration for writers over at the YAMuses blog. Check 'em out!

  1. OH! A lot to look forward to :)
    I love it when authors write "fan fics" on their own work, it gives it a nice twist :)

  11. I can't wait to be able to get my hands on an ARC, but since that doesn't seem very likely, at least I'll have my preorder downloading right at facebook!

  13. I love the color for Brooke's cover, I'm really looking forward to seeing more of her! Also - a bigger and scarier fantasy series? Sign me uppppp. I can barely handle the fact that you're working on a New Adult book, so I'm excited to see what else you've got up your sleeves!
