  • I read a lot, and I have a lot of opinions, so I can't believe I haven't made a list like this before. If you are even a little bit like me or you want to get a peek into my psyche (you probs don't), these are the books to read.

I like you

I’ll admit: I’m not great on Facebook, personally, for myself. I know a lot about it because I use it ALL THE TIME for work, but I rarely use it for myself–like, to communicate with/keep in touch with/stalk people–and I use it even more rarely for my books. But that’s all about to change! Because I’ve relaunched the Anna Jarzab Books Facebook fan page! I even did some design and coding work on it; at the risk of patting myself too hard on the back, I think it looks pretty snazzy. I’ve posted some outtakes from the ALL UNQUIET THINGS photo shoot on the page (which I poached from the photographer Eva Kolenko’s Tumblr) and the full version of the photo on the cover that even I’d never seen before recently! I’m also going to be putting up some sneak peeks (just a line or two) from THE OPPOSITE OF HALLELUJAH every day or so until October 9th, since THE OPPOSITE OF HALLELUJAH is less than two months from release now, which is BLOWING MY MIND.

It’s so funny, I can’t believe this is only my second book and it’s not even out yet. I’m in the middle of working on TANDEM 2 right now, and an adult book, so in my head I have about five books published–even though actually it’s just the one right now, soon to be two. I am excited to tell you, though, that TANDEM is going to be out in Fall 2013 sometime (no firm date yet, you know how these things go) with, I’m assuming, if everything goes smoothly, TANDEM 2 coming out in Fall 2014 and TANDEM 3 (THERE ARE GOING TO BE THREE!!! Probably) coming out in Fall 2015. But, obvi, who knows? I’ll keep you posted.

I really can’t wait to tell you more about TANDEM. I’ve seen the cover, which is GORGEOUS and THE BEST, but I can’t share it yet, not sure when I’ll be able to. No description, yet, either, except for what you already know, which is that it’s an epic romantic adventure set across parallel universes. I could write my own synopsis, except that I tried and it’s really hard and I gave up. Boo hiss I’m the worst. Instead, I’ll post some photos that helped inspire me while I was working on TANDEM to give you an idea of what it’s about. The below gallery is only a taste; visit my Welcome to Aurora Tumblr to see even more.

Things that are brand new!

Okay, so big news–Eric was able to fix the comment tool! For now I’m still going to moderate, so if your comment doesn’t show up right away, don’t worry. I’ll probably take it off moderation eventually, but since it’s a new tool I’m going to try it out like that for now. And you guys aren’t seeing what I’m seeing, but the back end of my website is all slick and shiny and updated. I logged in (after being locked out for a little while, as you may have noticed if you follow me on Twitter) and was literally like, “Whoaaaa.”

Other things that are new: the All Unquiet Things paperback! It went on sale today, and you can get it…well, you can definitely get it online in a bunch of places, but also I think at the chains? I’m not sure yet because I haven’t gone in to check, but you can probably get it at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Books a Million…basically any place that stocked the hardcover. And the paperback has a new cover! Okay, so it’s only slightly new. The photograph of Carly no longer wraps around, and it has a lovely blurb on the front from Nancy Werlin, New York Times bestselling author of Impossible!

Otherwise the cover is the same. I can personally attest that the paperback looks great in person. My editor sent me one, which I then stupidly mailed directly to my parents (where they can add it to what my siblings derisively call the “shrine to Anna” in their office, where two hardcovers plus the galley of AUT are on display) before taking a picture, so I guess you’ll just have to imagine what it looks like. It basically looks like a paperback, but with the above cover on it. When I get my author copies I’ll give some away on Goodreads, to spread the love a little.

Third new thing: the anti-Kindle policy at Yankee Stadium. I’m going to the Yankees v. Royals game tonight and my friend Nikki emailed this morning to warn me not to bring my Kindle–last time she went to a game, she saw a man and his daughter prevented from entering the stadium because she had her Kindle in her bag. What am I supposed to read on the train now? J/k, of course I always carry a real flesh and blood book with me, I’m not a robot! But I have a bunch of fun manuscripts for work on my Kindle that I was hoping to get a jump start on. Boo, hiss, Yankee Stadium! I think they’re just being ornery. I really cannot think of a single reason why they wouldn’t allow you to bring a Kindle into the stadium. It does less than an iPhone! It literally does only one thing. Mysteries.

For those of you who actually read my Make It or Break It recaps, I’ll have one for you today or tomorrow. I will say this about MIOBI–if that’s really how they’re going to leave Damon and Emily forever (not sure if Chelsea Hobbs is returning post-having her actual baby), they did a really terrible job of wrapping up that storyline, because at this moment I totally hate Damon after loving him for two seasons. I’m sure that’s not what they want, so I’m hoping the couple will be back.

Reminder!

Hi all! Just a little reminder that I’m going to be at Best Bargain Books in Centerreach, NY tonight, reading from All Unquiet Things (I was advised to go with something funny, so expect snarky Neily/Audrey dialogue!) and answering questions and signing, I think. I don’t know! I’ve never done one of these before, so it should be interesting.
