The Heir, Events, and The Siren!

Hello Selectioners! I have three things I need to update you on, so go get some hot chocolate and snuggle up for a bit… okay, ready?

First, this is news that you should know by now, but in case you’ve missed it, we finally know if Maxon and America are having a boy or a girl. Turns out… it’s both! Yes, we have Schreave twins coming! And as far as who will be born first, it’s our baby girl. What does that mean? How will her/their future unfold? Well, that’s all to come. For now, hope you’re excited to know about the babies, and, of course, stay tuned for more Heir related news coming soon!

Second, the year is starting to wind down, and I have a handful of final events on the horizon. First, I have a visit to Costco in Winston-Salem, NC this weekend. It’s a bit of an interesting situation, so click here for info you might need if you’re coming. I’ll also be heading to the Netherlands as well as YallFest in November. Once I have my final schedule for these trips, I’ll post them on my Events page.

And, finally, some news I’ve been DYING to share! If you’ve recently tried to get a copy of The Siren, you might have noticed it’s kind of impossible. And that’s because IT’S BEING RE-RELEASED THROUGH HARPERTEEN! What does this mean, exactly? Well, first, it means you can't get a copy right now. But mostly it means I get to go back through with my editor and make it the story I always hoped it could be. It will sparkle in ways I couldn’t make it on my own, and that makes me crazy happy! It will also be released in hardback with a new cover and some bonus material for the fancy new bind up! We don’t have a solid release date yet, but it’s tentatively Winter 2016. So early 2016ish. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. I’m still in love with Kahlen, Akinli, and even the Ocean herself, so I’m thrilled that it will be more polished and available in stores in just about a year.

So, that’s everything I can share for now! Which is a shame because there are even more awesome things happening behind the scenes that I can’t wait to tell you about. Hopefully soon! Later, nerds!

More Siren News!

Very excited to share that The Siren is also going to Brazil! I never thought that would happen for this book, so I'm thrilled to see it being translated. For both Russia and Brazil, I will try to post dates as soon as I have them. I will keep these under the FAQ for The Siren, as I have done for The Selection. Yay!

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!

FAQs, Novellas & Other Cool Things!

First: As I've been going through the reader mail and doing Question Monday on twitter, a lot of the same things come up. I thought it'd help to have those all collected in one place, so we now have a FAQ page! I'm sure it will grow, but if you're looking for general stuff, it's a good place to start.

Second: The novella has a title! It's called *drum roll* THE PRINCE! More info on this very soon.

Third: As you all know, I self-published The Siren back in 2009. Turns out it's recently become a bestseller with my publisher, iUniverse! I can only attribute that you guys, so thank you!

And Fourth: There have been a few updates over on the Events page. Stay tuned because it looks like I'll be touring next spring! Woot!

Contests, The Selection, The Siren


Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates, but being a new mom is harder than you'd think! Congrats to Ashley, winner of the I Want Your Name contest for making an awesome video and getting her name into my next bit of fiction. Hopefully now that life is starting to get normal again, I'll be able to post things more often. Thanks for being patient! Oh, and here's Ashley's video:
