The Story

(Blog title courtesy of Brandi Carlile)







So, yesterday was a great day.

Not only did EVERMORE & BLUE MOON remain on the New York Times Bestsellers list for 36 & 14 weeks respectively, but I received, hot off the press, straight from my publisher, the finished, hard cover copy of SHADOWLAND!!!

And it's BEAUTIFUL!!!

Seriously. Beautiful.

I am in awe of the talented people in the St. Martin's art department--they really outdid themselves this time!!

(And no, I'm not giving it away--not even to my mom--it's too pretty--and it's mine-- all mine!!!)

In other IMMORTALS related news, I've recently learned that EVERMORE is also a bestseller in both the UK and Spain--so Rock On my transatlantic friends-- THANK YOU-THANK YOU-THANK YOU for that!!!

And I hear that today it's being released in France as ETERNELS-- Viva France!!!

Also, I wanted to remind you I'll be chatting with the ReaderGirlz, on Monday, October 19th from 6:00 -9:00 pm Eastern, in honor of YALSA Teen Read Week! So please stop by and say hi if you get the chance.





And speaking of dropping by . . . I'll be signing copies of EVERMORE, BLUE MOON, (and any other book with my name on the cover!), alongside Cinda Williams Chima on Monday, October 26th at:


Barnes & Noble
El Camino North Shopping Center
2615 Vista Way, Oceanside, CA 92054
(760) 529-0106

And I really, really hope to see you there!!

Oh, and yesterday I was over at Living Your Five, um, living my Five! So to find out what the car wash, Orlando Bloom, and holiday cards have in common, click HERE.

That's it for now--have a great day everyone!!

The book looks awesome. Can't wait to read it.
Speaking of the book, when will you post the first three chapters again?

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Anonymous- thanks so much!! As for the excerpt, I'll put it back up as soon as my publisher gives me the okay!

» αℓεxα☆ said...

When will the okay be given? Wow, the cover is gorgeous!! After Shadowland, the next books will be printed in hardcovers first, right? I can't wait to pick up my copy on 11/17. That's a long time... The wait will be worth it cuz of Ever & Damen. The other guy... Jude. I hope he's very mysterious and cool.

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Alexa-- Just one more month --- it's sooner than we think! As for the excerpt- I'm not sure when, I'm just waiting for the word!
Hope you're having a good week!

Hey, thanks. I had an okay week. A bit of a rough time with tests but I'm okay now!! So, how many books will there be in the Riley Series? Approximately. I think I'll call it Lil' Riley Series. Lol. It sounds perfect.

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Alexa- Lil Riley series works for me since there's no title yet!! And it'll consist of four books to start! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

I love the book cover. I wish you could come to Florida. You also mentioned the date of my birthday! Strange how that works. I seriously can't wait until Shadowland comes out. Right now I am reading Saving Zoe...AMAZING!

Kay said...

TOTALLY can't wait for the book now. Kudos to everyone that designed the cover--it's breathtaking. Congrats on the success Alyson! Definitely can't wait until November . . .

Alyson Noel said...

One month, huh? I guess time will fly by really quick. Well, it does. I remember 5 months ago, I found Evermore on a shelf at Wal Mart. Two months later, I hunted it down at Borders. Next month, I find Shadowland again. This time, I make sure it's Costco. :P

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Ronnie- wow, that's so cool! I'm not sure if my dad's even read it yet!

Hey Alexa- Yay, time certainly flies for me!! I can't believe it's less than a month away now!

Anonymous said...

hey alyson! love your books! so how many books are there going to be in the evermore series? really cant wait until november!

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Anonymous- Thanks so much! To answer your question, there will be 6 books in the series- SHADOWLAND comes out on 11.17.09, DARK FLAME in 2010, and books 5 & 6 (no titles yet!) in 2010/11. Also, in Fall 2010, Riley, Ever's ghostly sister, will get her own series!

Maci said...

Alyson,
please please please PLEASE make the books in Damen's point-of-view
too. I'm dying to get inside his head to see what he's thinking!!
:)

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Maci-- Thanks, I'm so glad you like it!! At the moment I'm keeping so busy with the IMMORTALS & Riley's new series, I haven't even thought about a Damen series . . .

:-D

Caryn Caldwell said...

I so agree - the book is GORGEOUS! You always get the best covers. :-)

Keri Mikulski said...
