We meet again, friends!
I’m glad we’re catching up because I have so much to tell you! I have SEQUEL NEWS and NEW BOOK NEWS! Where do I even begin?
Let’s start with NEW BOOK NEWS! From this morning’s Publisher’s Lunch!
September 4, 2013 – EMMY & OLIVER by Robin Benway
Author of Audrey, Wait! and the Also Known As series Robin Benway’s EMMY & OLIVER, a novel of lost and found love after a girl’s childhood best friend is returned following a parental kidnapping, to Kristen Pettit at Harper Children’s, in a two-book deal, by Lisa Grubka at Fletcher & Company (NA).
I’ve sat on this news for a long, long time, so it’s so nice to have it be officially official! I’ve been wanting to write EMMY & OLIVER for a few years now, so it’ll be exciting to get started. I love meeting new characters and hearing what they have to say. Also, Kristen Pettit is not only a lovely person & editor, but she was my editor on AUDREY, WAIT! so I’m thrilled to work with her again. Popsicles all around!
And if that wasn’t enough news, I have more! GOING ROGUE, the sequel to ALSO KNOWN AS, will be published on January 14, 2014! My first sequel!
I can tell you a few things about the book without spoiling it: It involves spies. (Duh.) Bad guys. Kissing. Cuckoo clocks. Chess matches. Paris. Jesse. Roux. And Angelo, of course. We could never forget Angelo! I posted a photo of the inside quotes on Instagram, so take a look. (Picking the quotes is one of my favorite parts of writing a book, by the way.)
I’ve also been keeping a super-secret Tumblr page filled with all the pictures, videos, songs, and miscellany that I’ve collected while researching & writing GOING ROGUE, so I’ll put the link up once the book is published. How did people
procrastinate write books before Tumblr? It’s a mystery.
I hope you are all lovely and well and healthy and happy. Now let’s get ready for autumn!
