About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

FINALE FAQ

Hey, guys!
I've been getting a lot of questions lately about FINALE. I'm so glad you're curious! Please read my responses to several FAQ below.

What is the title of the fourth book in the HUSH, HUSH saga? FINALE. I revealed the title during a live Goodreads chat in January.

Is FINALE really the last book in the series? It is. I've devoted the past several years to the HUSH, HUSH series, and while I will most definitely miss the characters and the world I've built, I'm ready to jump into a new manuscript and feel the challenge and reward that comes with fleshing out new characters, plot, and setting.

When can I buy FINALE? The book releases October 23, 2012 in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and Australia. I do not have information about other countries' release dates at this time, my apologies.

Can I read a description of FINALE anywhere? FINALE is under embargo, which means my publisher is working very hard to make sure FINALE has a strict release date of October 23—they don't want spoilers leaking early! To aid this process, the description of FINALE that is currently available is very, very vague. I will post it here, but be warned: It isn't a juicy tell-all!
Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. Fallen angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean that they will always be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him. But now they face their biggest challenge. Can their love survive a seemingly insurmountable divide? And in the end, will there be enough trust left to rebuild what has been broken? The lines are drawn - but which sides are they on?

I'm dying to read FINALE – can you share a sneak peek with fans? Chapter 1 of FINALE is included as bonus content in the paperback of CRESCENDO, available in bookstores everywhere. Happy reading!

How many pages is FINALE? Currently, it's 435. During the editing process, that number may go up or down, but it won't change drastically.

When will FINALE's cover be revealed? The cover reveal will happen May/June. Stay tuned!

Will you be touring for FINALE? Yes! I'll be touring the US October 23 – 29. You might notice that I'm touring substantially less this year than I have in the past. I have two little boys at home, and I've felt strongly in recent months that I need to be home with them as much as possible. In the past, I've missed birthdays, Halloween, class plays, music productions, and first soccer goals, among many other exciting childhood celebrations, due to touring. I love touring and meeting fans, but it requires a big sacrifice in my personal life. This year I've made the decision to tour less in order to spend more time with my family. I appreciate your understanding.

If I can't come to an event, can I still get a signed copy of FINALE and the other books in the series? Absolutely! Most bookstores are happy to sell books over the phone. Simply call a bookstore I'm scheduled to visit, pre-order a copy of the book, and explain that you'd like me to sign and personalize the book for you. For a small shipping fee, the bookstore will mail the signed copy directly to you.

-Becca

Oh Becca! I love your series and I am extremely excited and sad to see the series end. The Hush Hush series is amazing and you have done such a tremendous job with it. I cannot wait to see how the story ends. I am also extremely excited to read any new works that you have coming out. Spend some more quality time with your family :) We understand, it's tough doing what you do. I love your books and I just wanted to express how much :)

I still haven't read Crescendo or Silence, but Hush,Hush was simply amazing, I was hooked from page 1 and had never read a book outside of the Harry Potter series so fast! They are both in my possession and somewhere on my reading list, and I will add Finale to my collection as soon as it comes out for sure! Cannot wait :D

Kisses from Brazil.

Becca, I was wondering if you are stopping in New Jersey when you go on tour for FINALE. Can you answer this please? Thank you.

Becca Fitzpatrick said...

Hi guys - I don't yet know my tour schedule for FINALE. My publicist is in the process of putting it together. I imagine I'll be able to post an official tour schedule in September. Hope this helps :)

Hello Becca,

My name is Bianca, I'm from Rio de Janeiro / Brazil, and I am a big fan of the series Hush Hush, I read the books in two days, the story is engaging, when you start reading you can not stop anymore and I'm excited to Finale.

I know many must ask you this, but news on the Internet are not very reliable, even more blogs in Brazil, for that reason I wanted to ask you "personally" Hush Hush if the series could become a movie in the future, because I am imagining the scenes Patch and Nora.

I loved the series! Excellent Congratulations on this work.

I would love you to answer my comment (I used the google translator) to write you and I use to read your posts as I did not speak English.

Thank you, kisses.

Bianca

Hello,
I am a Middle Schooler, and my friend got me interested into this series. Can you please visit Pleasanton, CA or a neighboring town? I want to get a signed copy, and my parents probably won't get me one if they have to drive a long way or get it online.
Thanks!
