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!

Special Edition! 2.0!

Guys. You guys, listen. Listen, okay? I’ve been keeping a secret. It’s true, I’ve been hiding something. But it’s time to come clean.

You know about the special Barnes and Noble edition of The One that comes with a delicious poster and a bonus scene. We've discussed this. It’s out there. Well, what you don’t know is... that you can get that special edition signed!

 

Yes, I’ve been working away, signing tip in sheets (little pages that say The One on them that I sign and will then be bound into the actual books) for a few weeks now. I’m so excited this exists because, while I will be touring this spring (dates to follow!), I won’t be able to come everywhere. So hopefully this means a few of you who wouldn’t be able to get a signed copy otherwise will now.

Just to be absolutely clear, there are a limited number of signed copies, so run along. And, yes, it will still have the bonus scene and poster. The description isn’t 100% clear, but it will! If you have questions, leave them and I’ll try to follow up soon.

The Selection Stories Audiobook

A few months ago, a handful of voices were sent my way as possibilites to speak the parts of Aspen and Maxon for The Selection Stories. I listened to all my options... about a dozen times! And then narrowed it down to my top pick and backup for both.

I'm so happy to tell you today that both of my top picks were able to do the audiobook of The Selection Stories! Nick Podhel will be the voice of Maxon, and Tristan Morris will be the voice of Aspen. You can listen to them introducing themselves on HarperCollin's soundcloud page!

While we're talking about this though, I want to give a little shout out to Amy Rubinate, who has voiced America for all of the books. She's been hanging out all along and has done a really lovely job. You can listen to a sample of Amy reading as America on the Amazon page.

How do you feel about the voices of our three main characters? Personally, I'm stoked!
