IMMORTALS Fan Art by Kim Harris!!

IMMORTALS Fan Art by Kia Amazona!!

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!!

Lots of excellent news - thanks!

I'm sure the kids just love being with you even if the weather is great. Have fun setting up your new home. That's one of the only things I like about moving.

Hey Nicole- They sent it to me via my FB fanpage here:

Hi Kai- Glad to know you're enjoying the summer--can't believe it's already half over! :0

Victoria- I agree--the boxes are no fun, but putting everything where you want it is!

Hi Alyson! Glad to hear your summer is going good. And hope the move went smoothly for you. I just want to say I have your evermore and blue moon of your immortal series and can't wait to get your others. I'm also looking forward to reading radiance too.

I like how you write in Evers POV. Great name by the way. Never heard it used before. Have you ever thought about writing a second series of immortal books in Damens POV? That way it would give the readers more of the story? Either way, your books are great! Keep up the great work!

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Nikki- Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! While I probably won't write a book in Damen's point of view, I did write a short story about the night that they met. It's called ETERNAL FLAME, and it's free to anyone who lives in the US, who subscribes here:

If you don't live in the US, no worries, all of my international publishers have it and will distribute it as well!

Thanks again for all the kind words!
