Merry Christmas to me!

I've been sitting on some BIG news for a long time and am thrilled I can finally share it with the world.

Simon and Schuster has purchased the paperback rights for the entire REMAKE series!


What does this mean exactly? It means that Remake will be released in July 2016 as a paperback from Simon and Schuster under their Simon Pulse imprint. Having a big house behind the series will mean great publicity, marketing, and distribution that will get the novel into more reader hands!

Here's a bonus: there will be different covers for the paperback versions as well, and here's a sneak peek at the new Remake cover. It's creepy and absolutely perfect for the story. I love it.


But what about the hardcovers? Yes, all of the books in the series will still be available as hardcovers, and Shadow Mountain will be publishing those along with the ebooks and audio versions. Remake 2 is scheduled to be released next summer as well, with the paperback version coming out a year later in 2017. And so on and so forth with the next book.

Long story short, my Nine and her story will be around for a while and I'm so so grateful. It's the best present I could have asked for this year. Yippee!

My heart still beats and my skin still feels
My lungs still breathe, my mind still fears

Awesome news!!! So excited for you. Simon & Schuster is my publisher (although I'm in the middle grade and chapter book areas of the publisher), so we're publisher sisters!

Simon and Schuster will allow you to have a big impact on the marketplace. See if they will mention your book on a CBS blog or newsletter that they have synergism with.
