Two things you can pre-order! Genuine Fraud and the We Were Liars Deluxe Edition

 

My next book is GENUINE FRAUD, publishing in September 2017. Coming from Penguin Random House in the USA, Allen & Unwin in AU, and Hot Key in the UK and Ireland.  You can pre-order it in the USA, here

        Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.

        Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.

        An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.

        A bad romance, or maybe three.

        Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate.

        The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.

        A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.

        A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.

She’ll also be talking about the brilliant title THE DISREPUTABLE HISTORY OF FRANKIE LANDAU BANKS which we published just last week. Although very different to WE WERE LIARS it’s completely dazzling in it’s own way, so why not prepare for her visit by having a read before she gets here?

Australian Cover! Chatting with Gayle Forman! Writing on Hands!

Here's the Australian cover for We Were Liars.  Out down under in August from Allen and Unwin. 

We Were Liars

 

And in other news, I have been writing on my hands.  The characters in We Were Liars do that a lot -- mainly mottos and phrases and ideas they like. Here are two.  

WeWereLiarsHandsJustSayNo WeWereLiarsHandsThink

What are your mottos?  I think you should write them on your hands, take a photo, and tag me on Twitter.  Just an idea.

We Were Liars is out in the USA on May 13 and in the UK on May 14. 
US Tour dates are here.  NYC, Rochester, Rheinbeck, Washington DC, Book Expo, various places in MA and CT.  Come see me.  In New York, lots of fun events with other authors.

May 14, 7pm EST  the magic of the internet brings you me and Gayle Forman (whose If I Stay movie comes out this summer!)  talking and taking your questions in a video chat thing. Sign up here and you can also get signed books

If you want signed PERSONALIZED copies of We Were Liars the week it comes out, I have partnered with two great independent booksellers to get those to you.  Order by May 8.  Click here for details. 

That's it for now.

We Were Liars Tumblr

Just launched: the We Were Liars Tumblr.  #wewereliars

So pretty, right? 
I can gush because Ihad nothing to do with it. The folks at Penguin Random House made it. The only thing I supplied was the book, and they just went to town. 

They made loads of pinnable and rebloggable images with quotes from the book -- which are also fun teasers as to the plot.Which is under wraps. The book comes out in May.

What else is on the Tumblr?

A map of the island --  Beechwood Island -- where most of the story takes place. (Scroll down)

A family tree of the beautiful Sinclair family. (Scroll down further.)

The chance to read the opening chapters. Or read reviews (including fun quotes from Maureen Johnson, John Green, Sarah Dessen, Scott Westerfeld, Shannon Hale, etc, plus loads of your favorite book reviewers and librarians). 

Opportunity to pre-order the book. Or request an ARC while supplies last.

Anyhow, I hope you all will spread the word and follow the Tumblr and repost the pretty pins if you like them. 


The Cover of We Were Liars, May 13, 2013

Hope you had a good Halloween.
I was a monarch butterfly.
Someone stole our pumpkin AND the bowl of candy we left out for neighborhood kids.
I saw a man with a beard dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.
I ate all the Butterfingers nobody else wanted.
Business as usual for All Hallows Eve in NYC. 

Today (Nov 1) was the cover reveal on the Entertainment Weekly website for my upcoming book, WE WERE LIARS.  
It was an exclusive, which means no one was allowed to see the cover until today -- or the juicy John Green quotation at the top of the shiny beautiful jacket.  
Here it is!  
You also get a hint of the plot, which is highly under wraps.

I have a book coming out in May.

 

LiarsMSphoto

I have a book coming out in May. It is called WE WERE LIARS. There will be a fancy pants cover REVEAL on Entertainment Weekly's website on November 1, and advance reader copies (ARCs) will be mailed out after that --  but before then my publisher had me sign about 100 manuscripts which were sent to top secret recipients.

Okay, they're not top secret. I just don't know who they were. So if you were one of them, tweet me and let me know!  

If you want to know more about We Were Liars, I answered questions on Twitter the other night so there are some clues there. Search hashtag #wewereliars and you can read the conversation.

In other news, there is a cover for We Were Liars and I adore it hugely. They tell me they are blinging it up, which I think means the lettering will be puffy or embossed, so I don't have the image to share yet. But Squee. I love getting a cover and I will show it to you guys as soon as I can. 

I've just been in Portland for school visits and my new book for little kids, Water in the Park, came out this week. It's a Brooklyn book. A water book. A times of the day book. An inclusive, friendly, neighborhoody book with really cute babies and dogs drawn by Stephanie Graegin.  Details of our appearances this month are here, if you're local and have a little one.
