Coupla Things . . .


So last night my husband was looking at my wall calender and said, "Hey, did you realize BLUE MOON was released on the full moon?"

Um, no. I didn't.

But I really wish I did so I could've done a whole, cool, full moon, BLUE MOON, release blog party thing.

But now it's just a cool idea after the fact.

Oh well.

So yesterday EVERMORE landed at #4 on the New York Times Bestseller's List for Children's Paperbacks--woo hoo!! Making for 22 weeks in the top 5-- MAJOR Woo-Hoo!! And is also at #103 on the USA Today list--yay!!! And it's all because of readers like YOU- so thank you thank you thank you for that!

Also, Mind of a Bibliophile and Fantastic Book Reviews had some really really nice things to say about BLUE MOON, you can read their review HERE and HERE!

And, I'm really psyched that my EVERMORE/BLUE MOON playlist story made the Large Hearted Boy blog! You can read that one HERE!

Also, if you're in the Orange County area next Friday, July 17, I'll be signing copies of my books at:

Barnes & Noble
791 S. Main St. #100
Orange, CA 92868

And it would be really great to see you!

I'll also be at Comic Con the following week on Friday, July 24th, doing a panel called "Future Fond Memories" and would love to see you there! The details are:

Comic Con!!
Panel-"Future Fond Memories"- 12:30-1:30
Signing- 1:30 -2:30
San Diego Convention Center
111 W. Harbor Drive
San Diego, CA 92101

And last, but not least, there's still time to win a signed copy of EVERMORE & BLUE MOON over at Melissa Walker's blog, oh, and you can also read the whole BLUE MOON cover story and check out the one that didn't make it! All you have to do is click HERE!

And last, but not least, did you find all the tulips over at my new IMMORTALS site? Every time you click on a hidden tulip you get to listen to an audio clip of a scene not found in any of the books! Just click HERE to let the hunt begin!!

That's it for now, have a good day everyone!

That's funny about the full moon/Blue Moon thing. I noticed it a while ago when I wrote the release date on my calendar, but I thought it was done on purpose, so I didn't say (or post) anything. We informally keep track of the full moon at work (we've noticed an increase of weirdos and rude people calling when its a full moon). Anyway, your book was not weird or rude -- it was unbearably good. I say unbearably because of all of the cliffhangers you've left us with! I never thought I would say this, but could January come any sooner?

Alyson Noel said...

Hey NiGeLa- I've heard that about the full moon energy--they say police depts and emergency rooms are always busier during that time! Thanks for the kind words on BLUE MOON- I really hope you like SHADOWLAND too!

Thanks for stopping by!

I started the tulip hunt but I can't get the last one. Been searching for like 3 hours now. Hm...I need a new pair of glasses.

Monika said...

the last tulip kinda fades in and out..... im sure you'll find it! it was really hard for me too but it was worth it to find all of them! the audio clips are awsome!

I finished the Overheard in Summerland thingy. I found all of them by clicking everywhere. Yep, the last one was hard. I had to go back from the beginning, thank goodness it's near enough. I clicked on a different page but not before I saw the tulip faded, then I clicked on it quickly. Lol. I finished!

By the way, Drina's voice creeps me out. She's full of sarcasm. Damen sounds younger than I though. Ever sounds girlier. I imagined her with a deep voice.

Jeanette said...

Awesome! Will definitely have to swing by your signing at the Barnes and Noble in Orange...it's right down the street from my work! :)

It's pretty amazing that Blue Moon was released on a full moon. It's kind of funny how that worked out. Loved Blue Moon can't wait until Shadowland!

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Van- Hmmm, I'll have to revisit- I know they moved a few . . .

Hey Monika- Thanks!

Hey Alexa- I know, Drina's pretty evil sounding!

Hey Jeanette- Awesome! Can't wait to meet you!

Hey Kajikitsune- I know, weird coincidence huh? Hope you like SHADOWLAND!

Anna-Kate said...

I LOVED Evermore and Blue Moon! The ending to Blue Moon is kind of sad, I don't want to spoil anything though. But I can't wait for Shadowland in February! It is February, right?

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Anna Kate- Thanks so much! And good news- SHADOWLAND will now be in stores on Jan 5, 2010 instead of February!

Alexius said...

Alyson Noel said...

Thanks Bree--I hope you like SHADOWLAND too!

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

Every time you click on a tulip you will hear an audio clip of a scene not contained in the book! And if you subscribe, you will be notified when new clips are added!

i can't find the 6th tulip! help please? :]

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Anonymous--Hmmm, I know there is one that floats across the screen that a lot of people miss--maybe it's that one?

If not, there is a discussion about this on my b-board-just click the "talk to me link" on the right hand side of this blog.

Good luck!

Michelle said...

HELP!!!! I can't find the sixth tulip!!!!! by the way, I LOVE Evermore and Blue Moon! They are really good books. I can't wait for Shadowland

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Michelle- I think the 6th tulip sort of floats along toward the bottom of the page ----- I think!!

Amanda said...

Kylie Loring said...

hey:) ive read evermore, and blue moon. i waited a year for my library to get blue moon, and i just recently got it so i could read it on my plane trip. but we got it a few days early, and it was just sitting there, begging me to read it. so i did. in like... 7 hours? seperatly of course, when i went to bed and when i woke up. these books are sooo addicting. im also begging my mother to buy me the other books that have come out, because god only knows when the library here will have them. but honetsly, i adore these books. truly. i cannot put them down, as you most previously read:). cannot wait until night star comes out!

Amanda said...

Hi Alyson,

So right now I am reading dark flame, and I am confused. When Roman says "Drina?!" to Ever, what is that supposed to mean? Is he talking about Haven or Evers dark side?
Also what was up with that weird man in summerland who said he knew Romy and Rayne...?
Two more questions, since I haven't read the other immortals book in a while, what's the story behind Jude, Ever, and Damon? What's the love triangle story?
And I can only find 7 of the 10 tulips, can you give hints to where all of them are?

Thanks, and sorry for all my questions.
-Amanda

Alyson Noel said...

Amanda- Okay, let's see:
1. You need to read the passage again. Ever has "glamoured" herself to make Roman think she is Drina.

2. More on this in Night Star . . .

3. Jude, Damen & Ever have all known each other in past lives. Jude & Damen always love Ever, Ever always chooses Damen.

4. Honestly, I don't know where all of them are--my publisher made the sight--but I do know that some of them float, so be on the lookout for floating tulips!

:)

Amanda said...

Thanks Alyson! I wanted you to know that i really appreciate you taking your time to answer my questions, and also that i really love your books.
