Something very, very, very good delivered today was delivered to my door today.
It was dark, mysterious. Opening the package was so much fun.
Inside was an uppity group destined to make waves this fall. No it's not the Rat Pack, or the Brat Pack - but it is a new pack well worth keeping your eye on.
The Penguin Five.To quote the letter included with the slipcase this box contains "a collection of engrossing and unique YA fiction on Penguin's Fall list - a group of books we're calling the Penguin Five."
And Nightshade is one of the pack.
Pardon me while I faint.
Okay, back now - though still floating on cloud nine.
I didn't know the Penguin Five was in the works. It was a complete surprise (what a surprise!!!) - but I've had the pleasure of meeting the incredible marketing team at Penguin and they never fail to blow me away with their talent and hard work. Thanks Team Penguin! *kisses* *confetti*
Now good news for readers - besides the awesomeness that Penguin bringing to the world with these books - I'd already begged my way to ARCs of The Replacement and Matched (I read them as soon as I got them; they are both amazing.)
That means I have an extra copy of each...TO GIVE AWAY IN CONTESTS!!! Details to be announced later this month!
For those of you longing for The Eternal Ones and Sapphique (sequel to Incarceron!!) - sorry, I'm selfish enough to want to keep my beautiful slipcase intact. *petstheprecious*
How cool!! I'd give my right arm for this box ;)ReplyDelete
SO AWESOME! Oh, tell me the giveaway will be open Internationally, please. :-( Matched sounds pretty good and is on my wish-list right now!ReplyDelete
You are so very, very lucky! And how awesome it must've been to see your book as part of the penguin five! :D OOOH, CONTEST! I'll be around for that ;)ReplyDelete
Okay, so I guess I should have read your blog before I emailed you this morning =)ReplyDelete
WOW! It looks so shiny! =)ReplyDelete
Yay! I think it's so awesome that Nightshade is included in the Penguin Five! It means...you're this close to being a super famous author! *throws confetti*ReplyDelete

I've been seeing this Penguin box all over the blogosphere, and I don't think I've had this much mailbox envy ever before in my life! That is the single most coolest ARC package that I have ever seen. Kudos to Penguin for doing it--and for including your book in it!ReplyDelete
Very, very exciting. So thrilled for you in all of this!ReplyDelete
What a stupendous surprise! Yay, you!ReplyDelete
*gasp* That is one of the most awesome things I've ever seen. (Horror, Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal, Dystopia -- yep, that about describes the varity of books on my bookshelf at home, so that box gleaned my love right away. Never mind that all of those books are on my to-read list on Goodreads. XD)ReplyDelete
Anyway, that must have been a great surprise. I hope you enjoy The Eternal Ones and Sapphique! ^_^
Sapphique is SO GOOD! I'm envious of that box set, but excited because of the awesomeness!ReplyDelete
That is so great! Congratulations!ReplyDelete
What an amazing group of books. All of them, except for The Replacement (never heard of it?) are on my To Buy list!ReplyDelete

Megan: The Replacement is a wonderful read. I highly recommend it.
I am so jealous of everyone that got one of those beautiful boxes! And, I'm dying to read MATCHED!ReplyDelete
