Right as Rain

(Blog title has nothing to do with post, other than the fact that it's currently raining outside!)

Dear Readers:

Wow--I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post! My only excuse is that I've been on the road.

A lot.

First I went here:


(Stairwell inside the NYC Flatiron building-home of my awesome publisher, St. Martin's Press)



Then I went here:


(Maui!)



And now I'm back here:


(Home!)



Though a lot has happened in the meantime.

Stuff like:




Pretty Little Liars hottie, Lachlan Buchanan, confessed to reading EVERMORE on the set! Cute boys that read--is there anything hotter?! Check out the interview HERE!





Also, my second novel, ART GEEKS AND PROM QUEENS (recently rereleased with a snazzy new cover!) was chosen by The Examiner as "A Gift Idea for the Women's Fiction Fan"--read the article HERE!






And, I'm thrilled to announce that EVERLASTING has been nominated for the 2012 Teen Choice Book of the Year Award! (BLUE MOON was one of the top 5 finalists in 2010!) You can cast your vote anytime between now and January 31--winners will be announced in May 2012--all you have to do is click HERE! (Hint: EVERLASTING is listed under: THE IMMORTALS book 6- EVERLASTING).






And finally, for those of you who've been asking about FATED-book 1 in my new THE SOUL SEEKERS series (in stores 05.22.12!), here's a sneak peek:


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Immortals comes a breathtaking new saga brimming with magic, mystery, and an intoxicating love story that will steal your heart away. Meet The Soul Seekers . . .

Strange things are happening to Daire Santos. Crows mock her, glowing people stalk her, time stops without warning, and a beautiful boy with unearthly blue eyes haunts all her dreams. Fearing for her daughter’s sanity, Daire’s mother sends her to live with the grandmother she’s never met, but who recognizes the visions for what they truly are—the call to her destiny as a Soul Seeker—one who can navigate the worlds between the living and dead.

There on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico, Daire sets out to harness the powers of her ancestral legacy, but it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, when things take an alarming turn. Forcing Daire to discover if Dace is the one guy she's meant to be with...or if he’s allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy.



FATED will be followed by:

ECHO, MYSTIC, & HORIZON in 2012/13!
Foreign rights have already been sold to the UK, Germany, France, Greece, & Brazil--with many more to come!


We'll be updating my website soon-ish to include THE SOUL SEEKERS series, but, in the meantime, to keep up on all the latest, breaking news (along with all the random thoughts that pop into my head!) follow me on Twitter -- and don't forget to download the free Alyson Noel App Here!

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