I just received a copy of Evermore from Alexa so I am very excited to jump in and read it. Thank you so much for taking the time to sign it - meant the world...scrap that, universe!

Kelsey said...

OMG! Yes! Whoohooo! Congrats! Celebrate! Vacation!

LoveHateLive said...

Reverie said...

YES!! done... not the easy part....maybe?

Alyson Noel said...

Thanks, Adele! Really hope you like it!

Hey Kelsey-- You know, the truth is, it should really say, THE END FOR NOW--but still, it feels good to get to the last page, even if I do have to revise!

Hey LoveHateLive--I could hardly contain myself either--it's always such a relief!

Hey Reverie- You know, I really like revising, and polishing and all of that stuff--I'm looking forward to it!

Casey McGill said...

Congrats! Those are two of the most beautiful and prolific words in the English language I've come to find...

Amy said...

Woohoo! Those are the best words in any story.

Congrats!

Alyson Noel said...

Casey & Amy- No doubt!

NiGeLa said...

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Anonymous-- I'll post from it a little closer to the pub date so there won't be any spoilers for BLUE MOON!

Madison said...

i've read Evermore and i just got done reading Blue Moon. all i have to say WOW! bravo alyson!! they are sooo good! i can't wait for Shadowland i'm sitting at my computer trying to find a link to it but Nada. it's very frustrating,lol. ..Well anyways i just want you to know your an amazing author and by the time the series is over you might be just as good if not better than stephanie meyer. :) xo.

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Madison- Thanks so much!! The only link up for SHADOWLAND at the moment is on the new IMMORTALS website at:

And every time you click on a tulip you'll hear an audio clip of a scene not included in the book--it's pretty cool!

I really love Evermore.
I just bought a copy of Blue Moon and Im really excited to read it.

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Anonymous--Thanks so much--really hope you like it!

Seema Patel said...

*spoiler alert for anyone who hasn't read Evermore/ Blue Moon yet*

I just finished Blue Moon and I LOVED IT!!! You have no idea. I literally finished it like two minutes ago and I'm already trying to figure out when the next book is coming out! Please don't delay it too long! I really won't be able to handle it! lol
I really thought they'd "get together" in Blue Moon and in those last few pages where you find out they can't- EVER...I was screaming in frustration!!!! hahaha
Alyson, you're an amazing author and I'm so thankful to my local library for having your book because if they didn't carry it, I never would have bought the sequel (and seriously, I never buy books since I don't have much money, being a student and all. So the fact that I couldn't wait for the library to get your sequel and then sign up to be on the waiting list for it says something hahahah)

Cannot wait until the sequel hun :)

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Seema-

Wow, I can't thank you enough for your support--it really means a lot to me! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Aubs said...

Just finished Blue Moon late last night. Loved it! Can't wait for Shadowland. I am hoping that it'll release sooner than 2/2010!!!

sakuara said...

This was both incredible to divulge but also very depressing and melancholy. But I can really feel where its coming from. In the past two years my grandmother passed away the day after my birthday and my aunt just last year passed on christmas day from cancer. So this book is really helpful and soothing in a way. I love the fact that its different from all the others out there. I think the idea that you took a new approach is inspirational. I can't wait till shadowland comes out. Thank you for writing a series that has taken hold in my heart.

Alyson Noel said...

Thanks so much, Aubs-- I hope you like it!

Hey Jenny- I am so sorry to read of your loss, I know how painful it is to lose the ones you love, and am so glad my book could help in some small way. Thanks so much for stopping by to share that with me.

jennie said...

OMG!! i luv your series! i borrowed evermore from my fiend leah and wuz like ssooo excited when i finally saw blue moon in walmart.it took me less than a day to read.i wanted to cry when i thought damen wuz gonna die and then again when i found out they can NEVER be together. i dont think i can wait for shadowland to come out.

Mai said...

Alyson Noel! Evermore & Blue Moon were amazing books. Like undescribably amazing! The Immortal Series are like in my top 3 fav books! SERIOUSLY. :) I can't wait til Shadowland comes out! Whenever i was reading your books, i couldn't put them down! I read Evermore in one day, and then later bought Blue Moon and read that in one night! But it makes me kind of sad that Shadowland will be the last Immortal Series! :( YOU SHOULD LIKE TOTALLY CONTINUE! I would totally read them all if you continued. Lol. But oh well! I LOVE THE IMMORTAL SERIES! ♥

Alyson Noel said...

Jennie- Thanks so much! Hope you like SHADOWLAND too!

Hey Mai- SHADOWLAND is NOT the end!! I'm not sure where that rumor started, but there will be 6 books in the series!

Yaracet said...

***SPOILER ALERT for anyone who hasn't read Evermore/ Blue Moon yet***

W-O-W. I read Evermore about a week ago and I just got Blue Moon in the mail and I can't wait to read it. Alyson, you are such a talented writer and your series is truly phenomenal. Your characters are well developed and are relatable. Everytime I wasn't reading Evermore, I was trying to predict what was going to happen next. Unfortunately, most times I was wrong. lol. I truly enjoyed reading your novel and have reccommended it to my friends. I just know I'm going to enjoy Blue Moon.

Alyson Noel said...

Anonymous--you are too kind! I hope you like BLUE MOON and thanks for spreading the word to your friends!!

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh! I loved Evermore and Blue Moon!!!!! I am dying to read Shadowland and hopefully more books from your immortal series! You are such an awesome author!!! Wish i had a copy of Shadowland right now! I got all my friends addicted to Evermore, so we all can't wait!

Tatum lynn said...

Alyson Noel said...

Thanks so much Tatum Lynn- I'm sorry I made you cry, but I'm so glad you enjoyed them!

cheyenne said...

your books are amazing! THANK YOU for "gifting" your beautiful stories to us all. I'll admit- I bought blue moon a few hours ago and finally put it down since it ended. I can't wait for shadowland!!! it's killing me!!

maisie said...

I love you books, they grabbed m efrom the first chapter and held on right through the second book. Ever and all the other characters are awesome! Can't wait for shadowland, I am so excited!

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Cheyenne--Thanks so much-I'm thrilled you're enjoying it!

Hey Maisie-Thanks so much, I'm so glad you liked it!

Shaley said...

THis book is very inspiring. Its authors like you that make me want to be a writer. I have almost finished my first book. But now I dont know what to do next. I wish I had someone in the business read and help me out. But I am just lost as to what to do next for my baby book. Have any advice on how to help my book makes its first steps??

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Shaley- The best thing you can do if you can is to join a professional writer's organization--there are many, so you'll have to research the right one for you and your genre- like RWA, SCBW, BACKSPACE, etc. If you can't do that, run a Yahoo search on online writing groups that deal with your genre. Also, you might want to check out the Verla Kay Boards (you'll need to run a search since I don't have the address), Publisher's Marketplace, and various agent and editor blogs to get a feel for how it's done. Publishing is a very tough business, so it's important to go out there fully armed to give your book the best chance possible! I wish you all the luck in the world!

Emily said...

I have read both Evermore and Blue Moon many times. They are absolutly wonderful and I have no doubt Shadowland will be just as great! Ha I'm sure you've heard this all before but its true. You are an amazing author. I Can't Wait For SHADOWLAND!!!

Thanks, Evermore was just amazing!

Becca said...

Is there going to be another book in the immortal series after Shadowland?

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Emily- You are too sweet!! I really hope you like SHADOWLAND!

Hey Anonymous- Thanks so much! The UK rights have been sold, and I think it'll be published on your side of the pond in October!

Hey Becca- Yes, there will be 3 more! And in Fall 2010, Riley will get her own series too!

Anonymous said...

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Taylore-

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a sweet message!

To answer your question, SHADOWLAND will be in stores on Jan 5, 2010, though I don't yet have titles for the following 3 books!

Also, starting in Fall 2010, Riley, Ever's ghostly sister, will be getting her own series and I'm really excited about it!

But in the meantime, be sure to stop by the new website at:

SK said...

Hey, Alyson

Thank you very much for writing such good novels for everyone to read.
I was blown away by Evermore and can't wait to read Blue Moon, and then Shadowland. The covers of the books are so vibrant and eye-catching.
Evermore was absolutely amazing and I loved every bit of it!

Thank you so much and good luck for the rest of the series.

~SK

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Megan- Thank you so much!

Thanks so much, SK!! I love the covers too--the art department is a very talented bunch of people--can't wait til I can share the SHADOWLAND cover!

Tasha said...

Hi Alyson!!! I just finished both Evermore and Blue Moon and I absolutely loved them. Can't wait to see how the story plays out in Shadowland! I also have a question, is Shadowland the last book of the Immortal series or are there more? Do you plan to keep them surrounding Ever and Damen if there is more or do you plan on focusing on characters we already know or creating new ones?

I know that was a mouthful but what can I say. I'm curious!!!

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Tasha- thanks so much, I'm so glad you liked them! To answer your question, there will be 3 more books following SHADOWLAND, which comes out on Jan 5 btw and not February as originally planned, and all of them will focus on Ever & Damen though there may be some new characters introduced as well!

If you haven't been to the website yet, be sure to check it out at:

Thanks!

Nicole said...

Hi Alyson!
I was at my aunts house bored out of mind when I came across Ever More and Blue Moon and I had to say that I enjoyed them a ton. January can you please come sooner?? haha. Do you have any idea when the book after Shadowland is set to come out yet? Cant wait to finish the whole series!!! Also, I was wondering if you did any author signings or had anything coming up like that? Thanks for your amazing books. Cant wait for the rest!

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Nicole-
Aw, thanks so much--and thank your aunt for me too!

The book after SHADOWLAND, otherwise known as- UNTITLED #4 will be in stores in July--although I don't have an exact date yet.

As for my upcoming signings you can find them on the homepage of this blog, listed on the far right side or on my website at:

Hope you can make one of those!

Allie said...

I just finished reading the first two books of the Immortal series and they are really good! I was wondering how people get ARC's? Is there a contest or something?

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Allie- Thanks so much! As for the ARCs no, it's not a contest, my publisher sends them out to reviewers, librarians, etc! Thanks for stopping by!

Lexy said...

I just read evermore and blue moon in 2 1/2 days. I'm so ready to find out what happens next!

Keree said...

Dear Alyson,
I recently finshed Blue Moon, while I unsuspectantly read Evermore at camp. (I stole it from a friend) and I totally enjoyed both of your books!!!! I can't wait for Shadowland to come out so I can see whats going to happen between Damen and Ever. I can't believe the no physical contact thinger that Roman did, I was like "What the heck, they were made to be with eachother," when I noticed I was screaming at the book..... Good luck with Shadowland!!! Can't wait for it to come out!!!

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Lexy--Thanks so much! SHADOWLAND will be in stores now on 11.24.09 now!!!

Hey Keree--Aw, thanks so much, and thank your friend for me too!! And just so you know, SHADOWLAND will be in stores much sooner now, so look for it on 11.24.09!!!

sarah said...

Hey Saphy--Oh, I hope you like it too!!

SisCo said...

I love your books. I was just wondering when you make Riley's series will Ever and Damen be in it too?

Alyson Noel said...

Hey SisCo- Well, I haven't started writing it yet, so I can't be sure, but I imagine it being more about Riley's life in the afterlife-so they may get a mention, but the probably won't really be in it!

Anonymous said...

i was wondering when is Shadowland coming out. Because i can't wait I love The Immortal series. It is the best.

Anonymous said...

The Longer the better in my opinion. I loved Evermore and Blue Moon was delightfully infuriating becase I just couldn't figure out how it was going to end. More Damen please! Can't wait for Shadowland!!!

Anonymous said...

I love your books! You are a very inspiring authour. I read both books in one sitting. Congrats on finishing Shadowland. Can't wait for the rest of the series. :)

Anonymous said...

wow i've never been so touched by a book before untill now when i read evermore and blue moon it hit a spot and stuck with me. i think why most girls love the series is because of their indying eternal love for eachothger, true and pure love and we can't seem to find that kind of love today and how them being immortal means they will be togeather all eternatiy. Thank you for giving me the chance ti have a way to ecscape from my world and into the world of Damen and Ever. you book is blissfully hooking and beautifuly romantic i've never been so touched before.

Molly said...

I cant believe we have to wait till january for Shadowland, thats a long time. Im telling all my friends who loved the twilight series to pick up ur book because we need to make this series the next big phenomenon. I honestly have to say that I am a die hard twilight fan but I think that this series is better. I hope that Shadowland isnt the last book in the series because i dont think anything can beat the romance between Ever and Damen. Blue Moon made me feel so many different emotions it was hard to put down. Keep up the amazing writing, I hope that someday my writing can compare to yours

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Molly-

Good news- SHADOWLAND will now be in stores on November 17, 2009!!! Also, there will be 6 books in the series, and I really hope you enjoy those too!

Thanks so much for all the kind words and for spreading the word to your friends--that really means a lot to me!

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

OMG!!! Congrats Alyson on finishing Shadowland. I just finished Evermore and Blue Moon(which is now my fav. 2 books- they're even better then Meyer's series!!) and had to look up anything about Shadowland. I heard it's coming out in November... Is that right? I can't wait until it comes out!!! Your books and Shadowland have been on my mind since I finish the shocking end of Blue Moon. I'm pretty sure you've heard this before but YOU'RE SUCH AN AMAZING AUTHOR! I waz also wondering when Riley's series comes out? I can't wait!!! Keep writing and inspiring your readers(including me)!

Congrats!

Alyson Noel said...

Hey TiffW- Wow, thanks so much! To answer your questions, SHADOWLAND will be in stores on 11.17.09, and the Riley series (which I'm about to start writing now!), will be out sometime in Fall 2010--no exact date yet!

Just read Evermore and Blue Moon and loved both books. I'm a mom and I'm hooked on your books! It's a great series and I look forward to reading Ever and Damen get together. I'm dying to know what is going to happen to them in Shadowland!

Alyson Noel said...

Aw, thanks so much Doris!! I love it that so many adults have discovered teen books--there are so many good ones these days!

Anonymous said...

Alyson, You are my inspiration you are a very talented author, and I thank you so very much for creating such a wonderful series! I cannot wait for Shadowland I'm sure it will be fantastic. I have litteraly read Evermore and Blue moon 8 times and I'm rereading it AGAIN. You are a spectacular author and I wish to be just like you one day, your type of writing is like no others it has everything a book should have. And its not like all those books that have the same begining and ending. So I just though I would share that with you(:

Deanna said...

Gosh, I must say these books are amazing and awfully addicting. I've read evermore, blue moon and cannot wait for shadowland. These books beat the twilight series by far. Keep writing Mrs. Noel.

Alyson Noel said...

Thanks so much, Sierra!!!

Thank you so much, Deanna- I really appreciate it!!

Danielle said...

This whole series has me hooked. I can't wait until the 17th. I'm really looking forward to seeing what's in store for them in your next book. You are an amazing author. Really excited for the Riley series, too.:]

Alyson Noel said...

Hi aYaH- thanks for all the kind words and congrats on your story! My only advice is to let your schoolwork come first (but you already know that) and to let yourself get the story out, to not worry about every word or trying to be perfect. Just get the story down on the page, because you can always go back and change it later!

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Maria- Wow, thanks so much for dropping by all the way from Argentina--I've always wanted to go there! I'm so glad you're enjoying the series and really hope you continue to!

Julia said...

Omigoshh! Alyson! Youu are freakingg amazingg! I am practically obsessed withh The Immortals series! When I first bought Evermore, I was just infatuated! I couldd NOT stop readingg! As the same as when I got Blue Moon!! And I cannot wait to go to Target tomorrow and buy Shadowland! Youu are so talented, Alyson. Seriously. Unbelievably talented. I absolutely love youu! Haha. And so does my friendd, Ashton! He especially loves youu for puttingg Miles in there. :D I have reccomended youu to many of my friends, and so far theyy have all loved youur novels. Suchh as my friend, Diana. I lent her my copy of Evermore and she was addicted! She called me that night and told me she criedd. Lol. She then begged for Blue Moon. And that especially made her cry. (She seriously hates Roman now! Haha. So do I!) I wishh youu could come to other states for book signinggs! I mean, I'm in Tennessee! And I don't know the next time I am goingg to southern California! (Whichh, by the way, is an amazingg place! My favorites were Anaheim and Newport Beachh! (Go, Shake Shack! Haha.)) The Immortal Series seriously needs to be made into movies! That would be soo awesome! Youu could be bigger than J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, and Jodi Picoult all put together! Haha. I know this is longg, but I still have a bit more to say. I, myself, am writing a book. But, it will probably never be published :( I sometimes email publishers but they NEVER reply! Ughh. What shouldd I do?

Well, alas, I must go! Youu musn't ever stop writingg, Alyson! Youu are truly gifted!

Maysen.

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Maysen- Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice post and for spreading the word about The Immortals series to your friends-- I really appreciate it! You know, I have a couple tours in the works for next year, and TN just might be one of the stops (my publisher chooses not me) fingers crossed . . .

:)

Maysen said...

OMG! Seriously?! Ohh, I do hope so! It would mean the world to me, really! And thank youu so much for replyingg to my post!

But, youu never answered my question. Lol. How do I get publishers to answer me? How did youu get them to answer youu?

Maysen.

Alyson Noel said...

Oops, sorry Maysen!

Okay, the thing is--you don't want to contact publishers directly, you need to get an agent first. It's a very specific process and the best thing you can do to start learning the ropes is to frequent agent blogs:
You can google:
Nathan Bransford
Book Ends
Pub Rants

And also check out agentquery.com, and, if you can, join some professional writing organizations like SCBWI.org or RWAnational.org -depending on what you write, as well as join some online Yahoo writing loops as well-you can run a yahoo search to find the right ones for your genre.

The truth about publishing is that it's extremely difficult and the competition is fierce, so the more you know going in, the better for you.

I wish you all the best!

thank you
Love Fran x
p.s. do u know when shadowland comes out in the UK?

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Fran- Wow, thanks so much for your support--I really, really appreciate it!! I think it's so great that you've written a story, but unfortunately, I'm not allowed to read unpublished works so I can't go to that site. Still, I want to wish you all the best with it and any future ones that you write!

As for DARK FLAME's release in the UK, well, I'm really not sure! It's a different publisher so the dates aren't the same as they are here, but I think it will be sometime later this year.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Alison, Ive never done anything like this before so i dont know if this is right but I wanted to tell you how amazing your books are. My best friend borrowed them and she loves them too. Ive always wanted to be a writer and your books inspire me to start writing. Thankyou and I just want to say again how great your books are. Wow!
I live in the UK and I wondered when Shadowland will be available here.
Thankyou.

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Anonymous- Thank you so much for all the kind words, and I really appreciate it, and I wish you all the best on your writing!!

Poppy said...

Hey Alyson,
Thanks so much for writing Evermore and Blue Moon! They are the best books I have read since I dunno, The Twilight Saga - or maybe the House of Night. Not that I don't like them, but it's nice to see something that doesn't include all this vampire blah blah.
Could you give me some tips on writing. I want to be an author someday, but every draft I write seems much too short =- not fair! And what font should I use?...

Thanks x

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Poppy- Thanks so much, I'm so glad you're enjoying the books! As for tips, well, I use a 12 point font, Times New Roman, double spaced. Don't worry about your book being "too short" just use as many words as it takes to tell your story. Teen books can fall anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000 words and up, but the average is somewhere around 65,000 --The Immortals books are around 85-90,000. If you still feel your book is too short, maybe there are parts you can beef up--either with tension, or description, or more obstacles? It's always a good idea to set your story down for a few weeks after you finish--when you revisit later, you'll be amazed at what a new read with fresh eyes will reveal!

All the best!
:)

Thank you so much, Paige!! And thanks to your cousin for recommending it!
