SUPER-DUPER FABULOUS EXCITING NEWS (that kinda freaks me out!)

You know that episode of The Twilight Zone where the author thinks her new book is coming out in four months, and that she has plenty of time for promo and eating bon-bons (and everything else that we authors do all day), and then suddenly her editor emails her to say that they’ve changed their minds and they want the new book to come out earlier????

Really, you don’t remember that one? Weird…maybe it’s just me. Or maybe it was just my email from my editor saying that DESIRES OF THE DEAD will be coming out AN ENTIRE MONTH EARLIER!!!!! That’s right, instead of March 15th, Desires of the Dead will now hit stores on February 15th!

Excited? Of course!

Freaked out? Hell, yeah!!! (I’ve gotta get me some bookmarks, stat!)

Oh , and by the way, does anyone out there want to be Jay’s Valentine? ;)

That is SO exciting. I'll admit, the March date was exciting for me personally because my birthday is 3-14, but early releases are even better. I may just have to celebrate early with you!!

Congratulations! Have you announced your tour yet? We would love to have you visit Utah, great skiing in February. ;)

kjovus - my life with books said...

PS if you don't like to ski your family would have fun at Soldier Hollow and the awesome tubing they have. Utah has lots of family friendly activities.

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

SOOOOOO excited for you. I see nothing but good things coming from this! :)

Britta said...

Oh my goodness, yay! And I'd appreciate if you'd stop giving away my boyfriend. *Oops! Spoiler alert!* Just wait until Book 3! (Haha, just kidding)

But, seriously, congratulations! The ARC was amazing! And with such a beautiful cover, I'm sure any bookmark gracing it would be just as striking.

Britta :)

Leanna (Daisy Chain Book Reviews) said...

I totally want to be Jay's valentine!!!

This is really exciting news, but is this for the US release only? If so I'm gonna have to get Desires on import. No way I can wait for a UK release in March if the book is out in the US in February!

Swimmer said...

I'll be Jay's valentine!!! Pick me!! Pick me! That is awesome that means us crazy fans will no longer have to break down the door to the bookshop in March... we'll have to do it in the cold of February!
