Late Lament

I just realized I haven't blogged since last Wednesday.

Seven days--one week--no blog.

Why you ask?

Well, I'm not sure. 

I was all set to blog Friday, but then my husband surprised me with a spa day, so that took care of that--and then--and then--the week just sort of flew by in a blur of unaccounted for days.

All I know, is that we now have back cover copy for BLUE MOON (I'll be sharing that soonish), tossed around cover ideas for SHADOWLAND (can't wait to see how the art department interprets such vagueness!), the French rights for both EVERMORE & BLUE MOON were sold at auction to Michel Lafon, and other than that, I've been pretty much immersed in all things SHADOWLAND--getting very very close to typing THE END (I know, I've been saying that for awhile now, but only because it's been true every
 time I've said it!)!

Oh, and today being Wednesday and all, I just learned that EVERMORE remains at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list for the 4th week in a row--and it cracked the top 50 at USA Today coming in at #47!!

So, thank YOU for that! Truly, thank you!!

And in case you were wondering, and even if 
you weren't the title of this blog refers to the poem about six minutes into the old song, "Nights in White Satin" by the Moody Blues.  I've just
 rediscovered it and added it to my SHADOWLAND playlist--and it's soooo dramatic--and lovelorn--just perfect!

Oh, and lastly, I just thought I'd share the new revised cover for BLUE MOON! I have to say, I'm really loving that extra line they added!

Have a great day everyone!

Yes, that new line is awesome!:) Congrats on four weeks at #1-you deserve it!!
And I have to say I'm super jealous about that spa day thing-could your husband come teach my fiance that spa days are a needed in marriage?

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Carissa- Thanks so much--I'm so glad you liked it! And just so you know, BLUE MOON will be out on July 7th now, instead of August like it says on the back of the book. Thanks for stopping by!
