REALLY BIG NEWS! 

I cannot WAIT to tell you this good news.  You might even say it's double the good news. 

So, first, a teeny tiny bit of mush: I am so excited to share this with you guys after SO SO long because the past nine months have been crazy.  They have been exhausting and exhilarating and frustrating and so many other things, but the thing that I have been touched by every day is how much people care about SCARLET.  That love and excitement has gotten me through so many of the rough patches of this crazy journey, and I am so thankful for the people who have let SCARLET be part of their story. 

And I apologize.  I'm sorry for all the questions I've left vaguely answered or unanswered while I've been sitting on this--because it's been under wraps for SO LONG!!--and I am doubly appreciative of the people that stuck with me even when I've been evasive, and have campaigned for SCARLET to have more adventures. 

Are we at the good news yet? 

Almost!

This good news is worth celebrating, so we're going to celebrate!  In TWO ways--First, the holidays are coming up, so anyone who puts their name on this form (it's been neglected for a while, I apologize) BEFORE DECEMBER 14th  I will mail a free bookplate to anyone in the US so you can have/give personalized SCARLET books for the holidays if you so desire. I'll do it afterward too, but I have no guarantees if it will get there in time. 

 

And SECOND, I'm hosting a giveaway to thank all of you guys for sticking with me and sticking with SCARLET--I have FIVE tshirts that say FIGHT LIKE A GIRL on the front (they're various colors and sizes). 

Example:

How can you win?  Check it:

1.  US Entrants only--sorry international SCARLET lovers!

2.  The only thing you HAVE to do is leave your favorite quote from SCARLET in the comments; you can earn an extra entry by tweeting about it. 

 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

 

So that's it. 

 

Oh...wait...you wanted good news, right? 

To Talie, Katherine, Amanda, Rida, Josie, Melissa, Kat, Hayley, Toni, Susan, Meg, Bree, Heidi, Kelsey, Cathy, Beth, Sanette, Ravenna, Nicole, Leah, Sydney, Brittany, Pam, Jack, Taylor, Jordan, Kily, Jordan B, Emily, and Rachel (and those are just the people that used the form on my website)--you all had the VERY SAME QUESTION that I couldn't really answer til now.  

The question?  Will SCARLET have a sequel?

NO.  SCARLET WILL NOT HAVE A SEQUEL. 

IT WILL HAVE TWO SEQUELS!! 

MY BABY'S GONNA BE A TRILOGY!!!!!

::commence stupidcrazyhappyjoy dance::

Love you all.  Thank you for letting me stay in this business a little while longer, thank you for helping my dreams come true, thank you for believing in me! xxxx

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is so freaking exciting! I just finished Scarlet a couple days ago for the read-along and was going to ask (beg, plead) if there would be more, so this is the best news ever!! So incredibly excited and happy for you. Congrats! <3

“We do what we do because there's something we can do about it. Things like 'how long' and 'what if' aren't part of that. It's about the hope, not the horror.”

Congrats!!! I'm so glad it's going to be a trilogy! I loved Scarlet :D

Oh my goodness I'm SO EXCITED!!! CONGRATS, AC!

My favorite quote:
Much stepped up a stair, closer to me. "Fight." I looked at him. "Fight, Scar, because God knows I can't fight the way I want to."

I can't wait for the new books!!! I didn't want to put the first one down till I was finished! I really liked the story of Robin Hood so I though I would like Scarlet. I love Scarlet!! Little disappointed I can't enter the contest since I'm from Canada but good luck to the people who enter :)

Oh, my goodness!!!!! You have just my day and my sisters because we absolutely loved Scarlet and have been wanting more Scarlet, Will and company. I am so very, very happy for you on this excellent news!!!!!!

Just one quote from Scarlet, now that is hard because I have many, but here's one.

“He takes the guilt and responsibility that others can't. John takes the punches. I just take the hunger, and most times it feels like awful little.”
Congrats on the exciting news! This is so awesome!!! Happy writing and I cannot wait to read them.

Thank you so much!!! Congrats on your big news!!! I LOVED Scarlet, so I'm really excited for you!!!!
My favorite lineS (because I couldn't choose just one in this passage):

“Rob looked a little shocked. "Don't you look at me like that," I snapped at him. "Just because I can't trim a beard don't mean I can't swear."

"Like a sailor," he added. "I've never heard so many curses in my whole life. All combined.”

YAY! Thank you again!

Huzzah!!! So excited to that Scarlet's adventures will continue! Congratulations, A.C.!!

My favorite line changes with my mood, but I really enjoy:

"It made it a little bit easier, having all these eyes on me, if I had a knife in my hands."

It's a sentiment I can understand and appreciate, and it says so much about Scar.

I really loved these two:
“Of a band with three actual boys, why is it that all the maids lust after the fake one?”
“I’ll keep your heart, Scar,” he whispered. “If you keep mine.” (swoon!)
December 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEmily S
Congrats! This is such amazing news! I loved Scarlet and I can't wait for more!
My favorite quote is:
“I know what it's like when you can't get no one to listen to you. When what you say don't matter. I half think every girl knows what it's like to be silenced.”
December 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTraci
Congratulations on the sequel and threequel.

I absolutely loved Scarlet and I am looking forward to more adventures in Lincoln Green. Ha haaa. (I'll stop the bad Errol Flynn impersonations there).

YEEESSSS!!!! More is coming! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!

Okay, that is so not cool! When I saw, "No. Scarlet will not have a sequel." the words "What the " started forming and the next word was not going to be family friendly. Having said that, yeeeeeeaaaaaaa! I can't wait to read the next book.

I don't have my book at my aparmtent, so I trolled around online for quotes and found one that I like (hope it's right!): “I do what I do because I will always believe that no matter how awful life gets for however many of these people, there is something I can do about it. There is something I will do about it.”

Congratulations on the great news!

THERES A SEQUIL?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!
u just made my day:)
December 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMaria
"The very thought made my anger die like a leaf on a branch, and I followed behind him. It were fair torture when he put his hands on me, and looked at me, and stood with me, but Robin were a lord, and his heart would never turn to a thief."

I am so excited this news made my day and CONGRATS!!!
December 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAngel
Congrats!!! I'm so excited for you :D
December 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterVivien
Oh and my favorite line :)

“You are my whole heart, Scarlet. And this is breaking it."
December 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterVivien
Congrats!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing and I'm so excited to hear your awesome news! Ok... so now *hangshead* I haven't read Scarlett yet... I'm hoping Santa will bring it for Christmas. But it's on the top of my really, really, really, really want list!

December 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTiffany Schmidt
I love this one...

“I knew my heart weren’t never too sure ’bout many things, but if I ever could, I wanted to be sure for Rob. That way when his heart stumbled, I could be sure for the both of us.”

And I'm SO EXCITED that Scarlet is going to become a trilogy!!! :D :D :D Congratulations to you, and crazy happy dances for me!
December 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDani @ Refracted Light
Awesome news!! I'm so excited!! *runs around screaming* I can't wait!!

My favorite line definitely has to be : "I’ll keep your heart, Scar, “if you keep mine.”
December 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGaby
YAY!!!! that IS really really big news!!!! Can't wait! ^^

(One of) my favorite quotes is..

"This coming from the thieving, knife-throwing outlaw girl. As if there were anyone like you in the wide world."
