I have some news.
This news has leaked out in several venues, mostly because I spilled the beans on the Twitter, and then I had a plan to blog about it immediately, but time went by, and the beans I spilled got old, and became slightly refried. (Okay, I might have the wrong idea of how beans actually get refried.)
Where was I?
Right. News. So, we had a wordwar on twitter today, and I shared some of my favorite lines that I wrote, and then I realized that I forgot to mention my new project.
So here it is:
Before EVERBOUND comes out (in January), HarperCollins will release an e-book set in the EVERNEATH world. Written by me. (Not sure I needed to specify my authorship, but just in case...)
Here are three things about the e-book:
1. It will be novella length. (About a third to a half of the length of a full novel).
2. It will be told from Cole's point of view.
3. It doesn't have a title yet.
4. It will start immediately when EVERNEATH ends. Kind of like a bridge book.
5. You do NOT have to read it to understand EVERBOUND.
That about wraps up the news. Until it gets a title, I will call it EVER-Novella.
I'll share some of my favorite quotes from EVER-Novella so far:
Quote #1 "It's not worth it. You think you're bartering with your fingers, but you'll end up losing an arm."
Quote #2 Meredith: "He gave up his philandering ways to be with her."
Cole: "He's in high school. Teenagers don't have 'philandering ways'."
Quote #3 "There's no such thing as 'epic love'. But there is such a thing as 'epically bad decisions based on something believed to be love, but is most likely lust'."
So, what do you think? Do you have any questions about said EVER-Novella? Are you as excited as I am?
Yes? Then, can you write it?
Kidding. I'm totally writing it.
I CANNOT wait for this. Seriously. I loved Cole. It should be illegal and be a total crime that you wrote two awesome hot hot, can I make out with them, boys! Oh, and quote number 3? Yeah. I totes LOVE that!! lol. Hope the EVER-novella comes out soon! I need me some yummy Coleness <33ReplyDelete

That sounds like so much fun! Do you know when it comes out?ReplyDelete
I'm not sure. But I'm thinking sometime in the late fall.Delete
This will be awesome! I can't wait to read from Cole's POV. I hope I'll be able to get this one all the way over here in Ireland! Mostly if e-books are on US sites only, I can't buy them, so here's hoping!ReplyDelete

Interesting to see things from Cole's POV. Dang you if you make him more sympathetic.ReplyDelete
Woot Woot, happy dance, clapping and all that jazz!! *Sigh* some Cole to tide us over til Everbound :))ReplyDelete
I'm super excited about this. At some point, I would love to see a little blog about why more and more authors are writing *bridge* novellas - is that because of the demands of publishers or readers or what? I never really heard about them much until about a year ago and now they seem very popular. You know, just sometime when you want to write a blog post but aren't sure what to write about.ReplyDelete
