AS A HUGE fan of Suzanne Collin's "Hunger Games" series, I am pleased to show you all the highly anticipated cover to the conclusion of the series, titled "MOCKINGJAY" and might I add it is simply delicious looking!
How Cool does that look?? The book is due to be released on August 24th, 2010. I am working on getting an ARC, but from what I hear so far, there might not be any. Apparently, the book is so highly anticipated that Suzanne and Scholastic are keeping things under tight wrap. I am hoping that at the BEA in May, if there is an ARC to be made, I can get a copy there. Speaking of BEA, Mara and I have secured our "press" badges and are excited to be participating in the BEA's new "blogger" addition to their show. It should be lots of fun and we plan to blog right from the headquarters they are setting up for us smack in the middle of the convention!
We are working on a bunch of things now for you guys, and have received a package in the mail today from Frank Beddor, author of "The Looking Glass Wars" series. As soon as the second box arrives, (day or so) we will post our "triple threat," which will contain some really, really cool (signed) stuff for you guys from Frank! Looking forward to it as well as a few other surprises. This weekend, we will be blasting you guys with a bunch of posts that we have been waiting to put up. Some reviews, a triple threat, and an insight to some potential things we have working for you guys so we can get your feedback. Thanks for sticking in there and we promise you will be excited at our big comeback!
Speaking of, I want to take this time to thank all of you who have reached out to ask how my dad is doing. He is feeling much better now and we hope that the procedures he had done will "take" and he will not have to undergo any further ones. So far, so good.
Thanks again for all your support, and we are thrilled to be able to show you the cover for "Mockingjay." I am SO looking forward to reading this one. I will do WHATEVER I can to get my hands on a copy of it! Of course, if there are ARC's that exist and are given out at BEA, be rest assured that one (remember that Mara and I are both attending!) copy will go up on the site for you guys!
