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?
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).
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.
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!!!!!
