We don't have a confirmed publication date, but usually there's a year's gap between books, so the odds are it'll be out in or around May 2021. If you need to keep busy in the meantime, I've got a new series starting in September with book one, The Other Side of the Sky -- it'll definitely take your mind off that cliffhanger!(less)

And it's *FREE*! It's called THIS NIGHT SO DARK, and it's the story of how Tarver first got his medals, as well as how he met Sanjana, a character we encounter in book three.

Julia Hi Amie! Thanks so much for accepting my friend request. I am in LOVE with These Broken Stars. Everything about it was perfect: the plot, the characters and especially the writing! Can't wait for This Shattered World!!

Love, Jules


message 12: by Lilly

Lilly Santiago Hey Amie! Just wanted to say thank you so much for the friendship! I made my grandfather take me to Barnes and Nobel this weekend (spent 125 dollars and bought 4 books and a catching fire on dvd I almost died) and bought These Broken Stars! I had been going crazy looking for it! So I started reading it today in class got up to page 112. Can I just say to you and your co-author Megan THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING ONE OF THE FIRST STORIES TO WRITE ABOUT A FEMALE LEAD I FIND MYSELF NOT HATING AND ACTUALLY ABSOLUTELY LOVING I found myself absolutely absorbed from the beginning and ADORING THE CHARACTERS they are such a breath of fresh air from the over done characters in today's young adult literature. Tarver and Lilac. I mean I just can't. Even their names are awesome.I just love them. I mean COME ON I loved how they weren't that cliche "I just saw you and I'm madly in love/obsessed with you lets go have a convoluted courtship with steamy make outs and stupid fights) I love how they hate each other right now. Their romance can actually grow from nothing not just be something based on mere attraction otherwise known as the hot face syndrome which means (You're absolutely gorgeous so let me fall in love with you for that and even when I hate you in some scenes marvel at your beauty when I should be serious)A huge thing in writing today. Thank you and Megan SO MUCH for writing such an amazing story. AND I JUST STARTED. That takes talent. Now all my friends want to borrow my book XD Ya right I don't think so they can buy their own :D I'm super excited to finish it and even more excited for This Shattered World! Thanks again!
