I HOPE THESE IMAGES EXPRESS MY EXCITEMENT FOR MY NEW BOOK “ROOMS”!












Although it has already been announced elsewhere, I'm so excited to officially announce on my blog that I have sold my very first adult book, ROOMS, which will be coming out in the Fall of 2014! It is always a ridiculously happy and surreal occasion when I sell a new book, but this venture in particular marks two important milestones.

First is the opportunity to work with Ecco, which has housed so many amazing writers and books (such as Russell Banks, a personal favorite). It's just an unbelievable honor to be edited by such a deeply literary imprint.

Secondly: as previously described, ROOMS will be my first published novel officially for adults! (I say "officially" because 1) my teen books have many wonderful and dedicated adult fans and 2) I hope many of the teens who have read and loved my other books will find pleasure in reading ROOMS). While I love writing for young adult and middle grade readers – and will continue to do so – I've always wanted to work in as many genres, and for as many ages, as possible. It's amazing to have the opportunity to really embrace this as a really fun challenge, and push myself creatively. I think the best way to keep yourself growing and learning as an artist is to constantly explore and try new things, and I'm just so psyched to do that with with this book!

Who knows? Maybe next I'll write a children's picture book so I'll have readers from the cradle to the grave!

The Steve Colbert gif is amazing, as is the news about ROOMS! So happy for you! I have no idea how you do it, cross genre queen!

So exciting! I can't wait to read it! Although Fall 2014 is a long time to wait - luckily we'll have Requiem to bridge the gap, right? Coincidentally, I JUST finished writing a post about how you were quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, so this is obviously good news!

OMG Bacon is poppin' the collar. AWESOME! Congrats on ROOMS.

Jenny said...

Congratulations!!! This is so exciting and a definite on my TBR list! Good luck with your new editor, and I'm sure ROOMS will be just as fantastic as Delirium, Before I Fall and Liesl and Po (speaking of which, Pandemonium has exceeded Delirium's standards, remaining unputdownable and amazing)!

Congratulations, Lauren! I'm happy for you, although it will take enough to be published in Brazil. You motivates me and inspires me, even with my hectic life, I still want to keep writing!
Kisses!

YAY! Congratulations, Lauren! That's super exciting! But Fall 2014? That's like over 2 years away! (And I thought I had to wait a long time for Requiem, lol) I'm a college student who loves your YA books,so I'm sure I will love "Rooms" too. What's it about?
