"Noël's sequel to the bestselling Evermore is a mesmerizing tale of teenage angst, love and sacrifice with plenty of crossover appeal. . . The startling but satisfying ending shows that Noël knows how to keep her audience hooked. Ever's supernatural struggles are a captivating metaphor for teenage fears about love, relationships and growing up. --Starred review, Publisher’s Weekly

Thirteen-year-old Cody Saron has been home schooled his whole life by his father, an undercover agent for the CIA. Cody has never lived the same life as other kids his age. He never went to a regular school, never lived in one place longer than a few weeks, never had a friend or played on any sports teams. Cody’s a black belt in the arts of Tae Kwon Do and Ju Jitsu. He speaks five languages and has traveled to every corner of the globe. But what Cody isn't prepared for is . . . junior high.
When the danger surrounding Cody's dad heats up like never before, Cody is sent to stay with the aunt he's never known, Jenny Williams, in her small Connecticut suburb. Cody knows how to pick a lock or follow a trail, but he has no idea how to fit in with regular kids, how to handle his first crush, or
how to make it through a day of classes. How will he ever fit in?
"Funny and fast paced, this fits right in with the beach crowd." Kirkus

Here's the story:
Kara hasn't been back to Oak Park since the end of junior year, when a heroin overdose nearly killed her and sirens heralded her exit. Four years later, she returns to face the music. Her life changed forever back in high school: her family disintegrated, she ran around with a whole new crowd of friends, she partied a little too hard, and she fell in love with gorgeous bad-boy Adrian, who left her to die that day in Scoville Park....
Amid the music, the booze, the drugs, and the drama, her friends filled a notebook with heartbreakingly honest confessions of the moments that defined and shattered their young lives. Now, finally, Kara is ready to write her own.

This week on the Girlfriend's Cyber Circuit, I'm thrilled to host the talented Ms. Jennifer Banash who I was lucky enough to meet! (Okay, it was via e-mail, but it was still really cool!).
Anyway, Jennifer's latest book in her ELITE series, SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE, was just released this week and she was kind enough to stop by and answer a few questions for us.
But first, The Story:
The Same 5 Questions I Always Ask:
Jennifer Banash attended high school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and currently divides her time between Paris and the Midwest—where she lives with her Beagle, Sigmund, and her vast designer shoe collection. She is the co-founder and co-publisher of Impetus Press, an independent publishing house that champions serious literary fiction with a pop edge.

To check out yours, visit the awesome new IMMORTALS SERIES site by clicking HERE!
And speaking of release days, (I know we really weren't but I felt like I needed a segue), what an awesome release day it was! I heard from so many of you who not only bought BLUE MOON but also read it in the same day--and I can't thank you enough for all of your support!!
I celebrated with a trip to the hair salon, lurked around in a few local bookstores, then hung with my niece and nephew who are visiting us for their annual summer visit.
But today I'm back to business, deep into the writing of UNTITLED IMMORTALS #4 on my backup computer since my laptop is still in a coma, still in the Apple ICU unit, while I'm still hoping for a speedy recovery because I feel so discombobulated without it!
And since a lot of you seem to be asking certain questions more than others, I'll answer them here:
I have no updates on the TV show/movie yet--but promise to keep you posted if anything does come up!
Also, there will be a total of 6 books in the series, so SHADOWLAND is most definitely not the end!!! Ever and Damen have many more adventures ahead of them (many!)!!
And yes, it's true that Riley (Ever's ghostly sister) will be getting her own series set to debut in Fall 2010!
And . . . that's it! So while I get back to work, I'll leave you with these links of fun reviews and mentions you might want to check out:
