(Yes, I know it's Saturday, but I have a good imagination, and I'm pretending it's still Friday. Feel free to exercise your own imagination.)
1. The HUSH, HUSH graphic novel comes out April 18th - less than a week away! I've heard from my publisher that the book is about to sell out at distribution level, which means if you're dying to get your hands on a copy, you'll probably want to pick up one sooner rather than later. Otherwise, you risk waiting for the graphic novel to go back to print. And did I mention I wrote an original scene between Patch and Nora that will be included as bonus content? I did!
2. YALSA's Teens' Top Ten Nominees have been announced. I've read several of the books on the list, and there is a reason they've been nominated - they're great books! If you're looking for a new book, why not try one of them? The full list can be found HERE.
3. In case you missed it, yesterday I announced FINALE's cover will be revealed in June. Stay tuned!
4. I'm reading INSURGENT by Veronica Roth. It's taking all my willpower to read a little bit every night, stretching it out so the wonderful story won't end too quickly. If you haven't read DIVERGENT, the first book in the trilogy, you are missing out on some very special storytelling. Oh man, how I love Tris and Four. And, oh, how I love the world of DIVERGENT.
5. This week, I sent round two of my FINALE edits to my editor. We're getting so close to the end. I feel lucky and grateful to be working with such a smart and devoted team - we want this book to be an exciting and worthy end to Patch and Nora's story! I still have line edits, copy edits, and first-pass pages, but after that, around mid-May, the book will leave my hands for good and go to print. After that, hurry up, October!
