The Siren is traveling!

I have super cool news: The Siren, the novel I self-published before The Selection, is getting translated into Russian!

I have to be honest, when I heard this might be happening, I was shocked and giddy. I still love Kahlen, Akinli, and the rest of the girls, and I'm very happy that a whole new audience will get to meet them.

In a related note, I just got a royalty statement for The Siren. The fact that anything came at all is super cool, because it means you're reading it, and it still amazes me that you guys take the time to find that book. I admit, it's not as polished as I'd have liked, but I'll always have a heart for that story, so thank you all for reading.

And, to any Russian readers stopping by, I hope you love it!

First Review for The One

It's barely two months until The One hits shelves, and I know you guys are always aching to hear more news about it. Well, I just got the first review back from Publishers Weekly. This is what they had to say:

"America is as willful and defiant as ever, making her both a target of King Clarkson’s wrath and the darling of the people of Illea. She and Maxon continue to butt heads even as the chemistry between them remains palpable."

Want to read everything they had to say? Check out the full review here!

Officially Kiera

After trying to register myself on a social media site recently only to find there was already a Kiera Cass on there pretending to be me, I realized it might be helpful for you guys to have a list of all the social media sites I’m actually on, and the names I’m listed under. This way, if you only want the serious book stuff, you know exactly where to go. Or if you're looking for shenanigans, well, I can help you there as well!

But let’s start with my website. Everything on this site is 100% official and completely book related. I keep this as up to date as possible since this is the hub. If there is something you feel should be covered here and isn't, please leave a comment. I want you guys to be able to find all the information you need somewhere here!

Twitter- (Kiera Cass) Twitter is probably the way I communicate with my readers the most. It’s the fastest way to get information out, and I sometimes share things there before I do on my website. It depends. It’s a little bit of everything: book stuff, family stuff, lots of lyrics, and I like to do chats (a la Question Monday) there. I do not follow back, but I do read ALL of my replies. Even if I don't respond, I see you!

Facebook- (Professional: Kiera Cass) I do have a personal facebook page, but I am no longer adding people there if I do not know you and am in the process of deleting most unknown friends. Unless I ask you to, please don't send me a friend reqest. Also, I do not read the direct messages here. I post lots of book things on my personal page but am currently moving all bookish things to my author page. It is co-run by Samantha (who set up the page and ran it almost completely on her own for years, all the while giving me access to it. Very cool!) and myself. All official book things.

Tumblr- (partylikeawordstar) This started as a place to collect awesome fanmade art, AUs, etc. I reblog a lot of that, as well as a bunch of stuff about One Direction and the book world in general. I also tend to answer questions there because I can do it in a longer form than twitter. This is a pretty laid back version of me, and not intended to be a professional platform. I share things there because there's a fandom, but it's pretty chill. Tags I check: Kiera Cass, partylikeawordstar, The Selection, The Elite. Not The One because of random junk.

Youtube- (kieracass) My channel is a mix of things. I make lots of videos following the publishing process, as well as general videos about life, and there’s a bunch of stuff about my kids. I don't post there often these days, but I still love making videos.

Pinterest- (Kiera Cass) I do have boards dedicated to every book I've made at the moment. I also have ones about food, clothes, Rob Pattinson, and things that make me laugh. I don't update often.

Vine- (Kiera Cass) Almost exclusively videos of my kids. This is mostly for me and my family to enjoy, but you’re welcome to follow. Tags I check: KieraCass, TheSelection.

Instagram- (partylikeawordstar) This is a new one for me, and I don’t intend to use it very often, but you never know. Tags I might check: partylikeawordstar, KieraCass, TheSelection

There are a handful of other places you can find me as well like GoodReads and Google+, but I am never there. It's a waste to try to contact me through those mediums.

I hope this explains things and helps you decide what's most useful for you as a reader. Naturally, I can't participate in everything, so my time on certain places is limited. I would personally suggest you find me on twitter to be most up to date. Thanks for hanging out with me!

Happy Valentine's Day!

If you somehow missed it, today I shared six new teasers from THE ONE. Just in case you didn't catch them (or any of the others I've shared so far) here they are. All sneak peeks in the future can be found on The One's FAQ page.

#1: "I apologize for being out of uniform, sir."

#2: "Come out, Mer, it's Max."

#3: I found myself admiring them, wondering at the courage it took to run toawrd danger for the sake of other people.

#4: There is a different kind of beauty that comes with humility and honesty.

#5: "No one will know. And seeing as you were with the prince, I won’t ask questions. Whatever you did, I’ll trust it was something important."

#6: I watched as the palace was transformed. Almost overnight, lush Christmas trees lined the hallways of the first floor, garlands were strung down the stairways, and all the floral arrangements were changed to include holly or mistletoe.

#7: "I need your help." Without batting an eye, he responded. "Anything.

#8: "I didn't stand a chance, did I?"

#9: "Are you scared?" he asked. "No." "Me neither." But I was pretty sure we were both lying.

#10: I felt our noses brush in the dark, and the urge to kiss him came unexpectedly fast.

#11: "It makes me nervous to feel some of the things I do. But I want you to know, I'm still looking at you, too."

#12: His body was now up against mine, his hand low on my back, holding me to him.

Heading to Target!

Hey all! I just wanted to let you all know, there's another place for you to get a signed copy of The One! Target is offering an online only pre order of signed copies of The One. I'm very excited about this because if you wanted to get a signed copy, but maybe didn't want to get the Barnes and Noble special edition with the bonus stuff, you finally have that option.

Let me try to get to some questions before they get asked:

  • Does this have the poster and bonus chapters? No!
  • Will this be available in stores? No!
  • What about internationally? You'll have to check Target's shipping policies. I have nothing to do with that.

I think that's all for now. Enjoy!
