First of all, thank you so, so much to everyone who shared in my Big News Reveal Part 1 on Friday. And an even bigger thank you for joining the THRONE OF GLASS Facebook page! You’ve already made it such a fun place to be—I had such a blast this weekend seeing what actress you think should play Celaena (if there is ever a ToG movie)!

So, I promised that my news today would be even bigger. And it is (at least in my humble opinion).

Remember way, way back in March of 2010 when Bloomsbury Children’s bought Book 1 of THRONE OF GLASS (…QUEEN OF GLASS back then, hehe!)? Well, I remember that day pretty vividly (of course I do!). It was—and will always be—one of the greatest days of my life.

Well, I’ve spent the months and months since then working my butt off to make ToG into the best possible book that I can make it. And every day since I got The Call from my agent, I’ve dreamed and wished and prayed that I’d get the chance to sell more THRONE OF GLASS books to Bloomsbury…

And this is where you guys really, truly come into play (and the moment I start getting uber-emotional, so BEAR WITH ME).

I was a reader and a fan long before I was a writer. I know how it feels to send emails to authors or leave comments on their blogs, and wonder if anyone (even the author) even notices.

But people DO notice. Important people notice.

You all have been the very, very greatest fans (and friends) that an author could ask for. I mean that with every fiber of my being.

So every time you commented on this blog, or on twitter, or on Facebook, someone important noticed. Every time you sent me fan-art, or got a freaking TATTOO of a THRONE OF GLASS quote, or wrote me an email that touched me more than I can say, I made sure to send it along to the right people. I made sure people noticed YOU—noticed how much you care about Celaena and THRONE OF GLASS.

And a few weeks ago, I got a phone call from my agent. It was another one of those life-changing phone calls.

Because I found out...

Bloomsbury bought the next two books in the THRONE OF GLASS series!!!

While I might have worked hard these many, many long months to shape ToG into a book I’m proud of, I really, truly believe that I have YOU to thank for this new book deal. Every day, I give thanks to the Universe that I have YOU as fans. I don’t think I’ll ever stop being grateful for that—for the mere fact that YOUR enthusiasm and support and encouragement has brought so, so many wonderful things into my life.

So, thank you. Thank you a million times over.

I’m sure you’ll get sick of me saying “thank you” long before August 7th, 2012, but…I don’t think I can ever really convey how deeply grateful I am for all that you’ve done for me.

And—wait—did I just say August 7th, 2012?

YES, I DID, BECAUSE THAT IS WHEN THRONE OF GLASS WILL HIT SHELVES.

Finally—a date! A real, actual DATE for when you’ll get to read about Celaena, and Chaol, and Dorian, and all of their adventures!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much JOY that gives me.

So, that’s the last bit of my big news (for now!). A release date for THRONE OF GLASS and the promise of more ToG books on the horizon.

Oh, and one more thing…

Novella #1 (THE ASSASSIN AND THE PIRATE LORD) comes out on January 31st!!!

So if you don’t feel like waiting until August 7th to read about Celaena, be sure to grab a copy! I’ll be posting details about where to buy/download the ebook ASAP!

Thanks again, you guys. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU . You are the absolute greatest.

~~

Also: Wanna read my CP/Soul-Twin/BFF’s amazing novel, SOMETHING STRANGE & DEADLY before it comes out on July 24th? Well, now you CAN! Holly Dodson is hosting an ARC tour! Check it out!

Also (also! Also!) Come say hi to our newest (and final) member of Pub(lishing) Crawl, Marie Lu—author of LEGEND! WOOT!

Sarah I know this has been so ridiculously long in the making for you, and I can't express just how happy I am for you that this has finally come together and the full story will be hitting shelves. (I must say as vocal as your amazing fans are, I've been one of the ones silently paying attention. You're work and progress has been nothing short of inspiring for me all these years.)
