ARCs of ITSB, YALLfest

ARCs of INTO THE STILL BLUE - I signed 200 ARCs for NY Comic Con, so there's your chance to get an advanced copy. I want to thank those of you who have read it for 1) reading it, and 2) keeping spoilers off the internet. Really hope you guys love this one. I think it's my favorite of the three.

YALLfest - I will be in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday, November 9th for YALLfest with a bevy of amazing authors. Come say hi! More info here.

Writing Update - At the moment, I'm working on two manuscripts - the New Adult I mentioned here, and a fantasy series that's bigger and scarier and more epic than anything I've ever undertaken. That one's still under wraps, but hopefully not for much longer. It's a thrill for me to think about sharing different types of writing with you guys. I hope you'll love these new stories as much as the UTNS series.

Speaking of the UTNS Series, have you see that BROOKE is available for preorder? This novella was surprisingly satisfying to write. I already knew Brooke had a lot more to her character than readers had seen, but after drafting this short story, I'm half-tempted to write a spin off series about her... Or maybe some fan-fiction?

Fun little fact about this novella: I based it loosely on Goldilocks and the Three Bears. You'll have to let me know if you pick up on it!

Finally, I noted some thoughts on inspiration for writers over at the YAMuses blog. Check 'em out!

Book News!

Break open the bubbly! A new book! A new book!

So happy to share with you guys that a good friend and I are writing a New Adult Contemporary Romance together. For those of you who don’t know what NA is, it’s like YA but a little edgier/sexier, and centered on characters who are college-aged. The book will fall under a pseudonym, as we’re coauthoring and as it’s in a different genre. The official announcement went out today (see below.) SUPER excited for you guys to read it. It’s been a blast to write!

I’m still writing YA as myself. I hope to have news of the YA fantasy series I’m working on soon as well.

The announcement:

Lorin Oberweger and Veronica Rossi writing as Noelle August’s BOOMERANG, pitched as THE HANGOVER meets THE INTERNSHIP, set in an online dating service that aims to be for millennials on the rebound, to Tessa Woodward at William Morrow, in a three book deal, in a pre-empt, for publication in 2014, by Adams Literary on behalf of Wildcard Storymakers (World English).
