The One with the Update
Hello my awesome readers!
Have I told you lately how much I love you?
Because I do. A lot.
I’m just popping in to give a quick update and answer a few questions!
LOSING IT has made the NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST for the second week in a row! This time it moved up two slots to #13 on the ebook list! And it’s still holding strong at #18 on the combined print and ebook list!
AND… you guys may not care about this as much, but it totally rocked my face off. Two authors that I admire and love SO MUCH read and loved the book– Jennifer L. Armentrout and Wendy Higgins.
If you haven’t read their books, please do! They are awesome! Jen writes both YA and Adult, fantasy and contemporary. There’s not a book she’s written that I don’t LOVE LOVE LOVE. And Wendy writes YA Fantasy. Her first book, SWEET EVIL, blew me away! And I’m so excited for her second.
I totally fangirled when they tweeted that they’d read the book.
And now for some questions!
1. I’ve had a lot of people ask me about the print version of the book. I addressed this briefly in the last post, but I’ll be more specific here.
My Agent of Amazingness, Suzie Townsend is currently shopping the book to traditional publishers here in the U.S. If we make a sale, that would not only mean a print version of the book, but also the ebook would be available through more venues than just BN & Amazon. I wish I could give you more information or a set timeline, but the fact is nothing is guaranteed. If we make a sale, I promise to give you more information just as soon as I can. But right now, it’s a waiting game. And the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in NYC has caused plenty of upheavals in the city, including for publishing professionals, so I can’t do much but tell you where we are now. (And while we’re on the topic of Hurricane Sandy, if you’re a writer or a reader and want to give back, check out this amazing auction event occuring at Jen Malone’s blog).
2. Similarly, I’ve had a lot of people ask about reading the book in countries outside the U.S. and Canada.
I’m afraid the book is not currently available for purchase outside the U.S. or Canada. It was before, but since I signed with my agent I’ve taken it down. Kathleen Ortiz is the foreign rights specialist at New Leaf Literary, and she’s working on selling rights to the book in foreign territories. She’s great at what she does, so we’re very hopeful. But I just couldn’t leave the book up for sale across the world, because it would make her job more difficult. Again, I promise to let you know as things happen, but you should be aware that foreign sales can happen a bit more slowly. So, again, it’s a waiting game. One that requires a lot of patience.
The best thing you can do if you’re wanting to see the book in print or in foreign countries it to continue to spread the word! Tell your friends. Tweet about it. Facebook it. Blog it. The more attention the book gets, the easier it will be to make these sales.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE you all!
P.S. I’m working on Cade’s book now, and I have a trip to Philadelphia planned soon to do some on the ground research! I’ll post pictures! 🙂

That explains why i can’t get your book on amazon UK, i saw your book not long ago and thought it sounded amazing but i was too busy at the time to read it so i added it to my wishlist to buy later. I was going to buy it today and so was some what suprised that amazon UK didnt have any evidence of it existing. Oh well i’l just have to hope that it becomes available in the UK soon.
