Winners and Exciting Things!

Dude, there's so much to go with here, my head is spinning. Let's go with easiest first.

I offered a signed hardcover of POSSESSION as part of the YA Scavenger Hunt. That winner is: Jesse Grant! (Twitter handle: @j_grant93)

Yay, congrats! Send me an email at elanajohnson(at)gmail(dot)com so I can get your address and get this in the mail for you. Thank you to all who tweeted and participated in the YA Scavenger Hunt.

Did you see my secret content? Because I think it's pretty darn fantastic. It's a character readers will see in SURRENDER, the sequel to POSSESSION, which is coming on June 5, 2012.

His name is Cannon Lichen, and he's matched to the narrating main character, Raine Hightower. Both Raine and Cannon are part of The Insider's Case Files, a booklet you can enter to win by doing things from liking SURRENDER on Amazon to pre-ordering the book.

Dustin Hansen is a genius, and the mastermind behind the art in The Insider's Case Files.

Did you see this? So exciting!

Christine Fonseca's TRANSCEND, pitched as Hamlet meets the Black Swan in this Phantom of the Opera thriller, in which a horrible accident leaves a young man abandoned and left for dead, his only link to sanity the love of his fiancee and the support of his best friend-an illusion that might just rip away the last shreds of his humanity and reveal parts of himself he'll wish remained buried, to Compass Press, in a nice deal, for publication in March 2013 (US).


Also, the INSURGENT trailer was released last week. I'm still such a huge lover of all things dystopian, and yeah. I can't help myself.



That rounds out my excitement for the day. I was going to do something else today, but I decided to put that reveal off until Wednesday... What's new and exciting with you?

That kind of looks like me. Except for, you know, the hair. And the eyes.

Also, does his talent say: beer?

Christina Lee said...

Whoa, so many things to squee about!
Matt, *snert*, you made me do a double take!

Now off to click on the trailer!

Natalie Aguirre said...

I heard about Christine's awesome news. And I can't wait for Insurgent.

Nothing awesome to share here except the house is clean and I am writing. Hoping I'll get an ARC of Surrender soon.

Ishta Mercurio said...

Wow - so much new exciting stuff, I don't know where to begin. I'm excited for your sequel, and for Insurgent! Dystopian books forever!

My new exciting news is that I got a blog award, and I'm passing it on to you. :-)

Claire Dawn said...

Matt, I saw that too. As much as I hope it is beer, I think it's seer. Elana, beer as a talent would rock :)

I kinda hate the YA world. Feels like I'm always waiting with bated breath for something...

All cool things. I'm totally excited about the Surrender promo and all that. What's new with me? A whole lot of nothing. Yet. (Big emphasis on yet, because I expect big new things to start happening any day. *twiddles thumbs* Seriously. Any time now.)

That case file of Cannon Lichen looks awesome!

I'm looking forward to Insurgent. I devoured Divergent.
