Journal

So, this news is technically up on the Books page already, but I wanted to share it here as well.

The third book is called BODY & SOUL.

You guys, I had so much fun writing this one!!! 🙂 I envisioned some of these scenes all the way back when I was writing the first book, and it was amazing to finally get to put them down on paper (so to speak). And I’m super excited for you to read it and see what you think. This is the final book in the trilogy.

It is scheduled for release on May 29, 2012. We don’t have cover art yet.

This is my (horrible) placeholder for the Books page (and yes, it’s okay to laugh at my feeble attempt at art):

Clearly, my future as a sketch artist is doomed.

And here, finally, is the jacket copy…but please, don’t read it if you haven’t yet read QUEEN OF THE DEAD. It contains massive spoilers for that book.

Stop now if you haven’t read QUEEN OF THE DEAD…

BODY & SOUL

The Ghost
I’ve been trapped in the body of Lily “Ally” Turner for a month now. Talk about a fashion crisis on an epic scale. What worries me more, though, is sometimes I catch Will looking at me like he thinks I’m Lily…or that he wishes I were. Without the good looks of my former self, I don’t know who I am, or if who that is is good enough. I need out of this mess. Now.

Will and I have been looking for a solution, one that would separate me from Lily without killing her. But it’s not going well. Then, when it seems like things couldn’t get any worse, we run into Misty, my former best friend and boyfriend-stealer extraordinaire, who claims she’s being haunted…by me. Seriously?

I’m determined to get to the bottom of who’s pretending to be the spirit of Alona Dare (while I’m pretending to be someone else) and then get the heck out of this body. Or die trying…

The Goth
I’ll admit it. It’s really weird to look at Alona but see Lily. I do know the difference, though, contrary to what Alona might be saying. And Alona is more than a pretty face to me, not that she would believe that.

Our one lead for some help in this messed up situation might be a page torn from the yellow pages—the “Psychics” section—I found in my dad’s stuff. One of the “fakes” seems a bit more real—and odd—than the others. Before I can investigate further, though, Alona is off and chasing a ghost that’s probably nothing more than a figment of Misty’s guilty imagination. Now Lily’s family is freaking out because she didn’t come home, my mom is ordering me to stay out of it, and something is definitely wrong with the person formerly known as Lily “Ally” Turner…

    Yay! An official synopsis! Oh, I’m so excited. Love the stand-in cover art by the way. It’s fresh and original. It’ll definitely make its mark among all those covers featuring girls in designer dressed striking dramatic poses. lol 😉

    And the title…so clever.

    May is much, much too far away.

    Stacey, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am. (But you already knew that!) I just wish we didn’t have to wait so long… (but you already knew that, too.)
    Oh, well, at least I have TVD and Supernatural on t.v. to tide me over until then…
