If you’ve been paying attention the last couple of months, you may have noticed me dropping a few subtle hints around the blogosphere. You know, little comments about how I would LOVE to continue The Body Finder Series, plus little hints about a super-secret project I’ve been working on.
Fine, maybe I wasn’t SO subtle but whatever; I’ve never been the best secret-keeper anyway.
Well, after what seemed like an eternity, I can finally tell you my latest news, which was just announced in Publishers Weekly. But basically, the jist of the deal is: I HAVE MORE BOOKS COMING OUT!!!!
First, my super-secret project news (which I’ve been sitting on the longest!).
I have a new book called THE PLEDGE releasing November 15th, 2011 from McElderry (Simon & Schuster)! I can’t express how excited I am about this project! Oh, and the cover is so unbelievably beautiful! I can’t wait to share it with you soon!
Here's just a little teaser about THE PLEDGE:
A romantic fantasy set in a dystopic, war-torn world, in which a teenage girl realizes that she may be the key to saving her country.
(Really, there's so much more to it, but that's all you get for now!)
I’m also thrilled to be working with the fabulously-talented Gretchen Hirsch once more (she was one of my original editors for The Body Finder…YAY!!!).
Speaking of The Body Finder, there will also be at least TWO MORE BOOKS IN THE SERIES AFTER DESIRES OF THE DEAD…*happy dance*!!! I’m beyond excited to spend more time with Violet & Jay…and Farrin (my equally awesome editor at HarperCollins)! I can’t wait to see what the covers will look like for books 3 and 4! But before I get ahead of myself, I should probably get back to finishing book 3. And, well, naming it. :)
I have to thank you guys for making this possible! If none of you read my books, I’m pretty sure neither publisher would want more of them. So, thankyouthankyouthankyou!
Oh, and last but not certainly least, DESIRES OF THE DEAD comes out tomorrow!!!!!!
