My Life Would Suck Without YOU!!

(blog title courtesy of Kelly Clarkson)




So, the photo above was sent to me last night, and I have to tell you, the second I saw it it was all I could do not to head straight for the international terminal at LAX and board the first plane bound for Rome or Milan so I could see it for myself!

That is actually an advertisement that my Italian publisher, Fanucci, did for EVERMORE in the Rome and Milan subway stations--how cool is that?!

And check out the awesome website they built HERE!

Not like I needed yet another reason to love all things Italian, but still . . .

I am totally gobsmacked.

And speaking of gobsmacked, I just learned that Hebrew rights to The Immortals series were just sold, making for a total of 26 countries, which is more than I ever visited during my flight attendant days, so yeah, gobsmacked again!

Oh, and it also continues to be a bestseller in the UK - so I'd like to send a big, huge, purple (my new favorite color, turquoise move over!) THANKS to all of my readers across the pond--I couldn't do it without you! There's even a UK Bebo page you can check out HERE with a different and very cool version of the EVERMORE trailer!

And, the awesome Brittney over at St. Martin's Press has put together an Immortals Series Fan Page over at Facebook, so even if you're already a friend on my other page, I'd really love it if you would join this one as well, since it'll serve as the one stop spot (well aside from the awesome Immortals Series website they built) for all Immortals related news--and all you have to do is click HERE!

And while I haven't received my SHADOWLAND author copies yet (just 11 more days until it hits the stores!), I did receive a few copies of the audio version and was thrilled to see that they've included a nice little surprise in the form of an Immortals necklace!

And for those of you interested in attending one of the SHADOWLAND signings, just click HERE for the details!

And now I'm gearing up for a pod cast interview with the awesome Jessica Brody (whose book, LOVE UNDER COVER will hit the stores next week on Nov 10!), for a Free Book Friday Teens feature that'll be up next week . . . so stay tuned . . .

Oh, and if you haven't been to Free Book Friday Teens yet, be sure to do so, as she's giving away signed copies of PC & Kristin Cast's new release, TEMPTED, and today is the last day to enter to win! All you have to do is click HERE!!!

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

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Amy- Absolutely!! I look forward to meeting you!

Hi Anonymous- Thanks! And believe me, I'm writing them as fast as I can!

Hi Alyson & Amber- Wow. I can't thank you enough for stopping by my blog to say hi. Alyson, when Amber told me your story I was so touched I actually cried! The most beautiful words an author can hear is that their story touched someone in a positive way and I'm so glad my books have been able to do that for you! And Amber, thank you for being such a positive influence in young people's lives and for realizing the important role that books can play! I wish you nothing but the best--thank you so very much for all of your kind words!!
Alyson

I got a copy of Tempted on it's release day. I am hoping to do the same thing for Shadowland.

I got an A for my book report on Shutter Island. :D My next genre needs to be science fiction or fantasy. Ya think I could do it on Shadowland?

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Alexa- Congrats on getting an "A"!!! That is just awesome!! And yeah, Shadowland probably counts as fantasy, seeing that there are mystical dimensions and stuff . . . best of luck!

Silver Blue Tower said...
