The Soul Seekers!!!

Wow, I feel like I've been waiting forever to announce this (probably because I have!), but the details on my next new YA series, THE SOUL SEEKERS, can be found HERE!

For the click shy among you, the new series will take place in the Southwest and it's about a sixteen year old girl who is able to walk among the Underworld, the Upperworld, and the dead.

I will begin research/writing the first book sometime this winter (must finish UNTITLED IMMORTALS #6 first!), and it will be in stores probably sometime around early 2012.

And I have to add that I'm especially happy that I'll continue to work with my awesome editor, Rose Hilliard, and my lovely publisher, St. Martin's Press--I've been with them since my debut novel, FAKING 19, way back in 2005, and really appreciate the way they've stuck by me.

In other news, in just a little over a month now RADIANCE will be in stores on 08.31.10 (I can hardly believe how fast this summer is flying by!), and it just got a great review HERE!

Also, I just learned that THE IMMORTALS landed at #6 on Publisher's Weekly's Childrens Series Bestsellers list--and I just wanted to thank you for your continued support!

That's it on my end--must get back to Ever & Damen . . . hope you're all having a great week!

Hey Everyone-

Well, I just wanted to start off by saying THANKS for keeping DARK FLAME at #5 on the New York Times Series Bestsellers list for the 4th week straight! The series list is an incredibly tough one so I'm absolutely thrilled with the news and just want you to know that your enthusiasm and support means the world to me!!

And speaking of The Immortals, a reader recently sent me THIS LINK showing that Ever comes in at #17 on the list of "Hottest Baby Names for 2010"--and, there are two variations thereof as well--how cool is that?

And speaking of Smart Chicks--the Smart Chicks Tour is just around the corner (Sept 13-25), so be sure to check out the awesome new website HERE, the blog HERE, along with the Q&A which answers all of your Smart Chicks Need-to-Know-Now burning questions HERE!! This tour is going to be epic--so I really hope to see you at one of the stops!

And lastly, don't forget to cast your daily vote in the Teen Reads Awards! The more often you vote, the better your chance of winning prizes!! SHADOWLAND is a finalist for "Best Read" --the link to vote is HERE!

Okay, now that the business portion is concluded, I just wanted to wish you all a great summer! Mine is turning out to be insanely busy with finishing the final Immortals book (still no title yet, though I will say UNTITLED IMMORTALS #6 is beginning to grow on me!), moving (yep, I moved, which means I spend most the day digging through boxes searching for things!), oh and my niece and nephew are now here for their annual visit (I just wish we had better weather for them--cold, foggy, and drizzly is not exactly the California promise!)!

Well, that's it for me--have a great day everyone!


PS- Isn't that fan art ah-mazing???!!! Thanks so much to Kia & Kim for creating such beautiful images!!
