Interesting fact: when you google "Pandemonium" images, almost all of the results are pictures of video games and/or strippers. Instead, I have settled for a picture of my book.

Other interesting fact: MY BOOK PANDEMONIUM COMES OUT TODAY!!!

Pandemonium, definition:
1. Wild uproar or unrestrained disorder; tumult or chaos
2. A place or scene of riotous uproar or utter chaos


Time for havoc in the bookstore, people! Lie, cheat, but definitely do NOT steal your way to a copy of Pandemonium! I can't wait to hear what you think!!

I'll be tweeting the first chapter of Pandemonium just for you! This week, everybody wins. Stay tuned all week for more exciting updates.

Want to Read Hana FOR FREE????

Hi all--

Yesterday, I told you all about my Delirium companion e-book, Hana. Well, today I have EXTRA SPECIAL NEWS! By preordering Pandemonium, you can actually ensure that Hana gets released FOR FREE on Valentine's Day! That's right. If we can mobilize a bunch of peeps to preorder, the whole book will go up on MTV.com on February 14th for four days (and either way, you'll get a sneak peek on V-Day.)

Here I am vlogging about it!

Consider it as a Valentine's Day present from me to you, since I can't possibly send candy hearts to each and every one of you (although I wish I could).

So go ahead and tell everyone you know to preorder Pandemonium! It'll be a double-whammy of goodness, I promise. :)

And if that isn't enough, don't forget to check out the Epic Reads Month of Love on facebook for quizzes and polls related to various awesome new releases! (Psst--pay special attention to yesterday's calendar entry.) :) What can I say? I'm committed to getting you in the mood this month, guys!

Meet My Friend, HANA!!!!

Today I formally introduce you to Hana, Lena's BFF in Delirium. Many of you know her as the beautiful, gutsy running companion of Lena. Hana was intrigued by what lies on the other side of the borders, but ultimately destined to marry her pair and live a quiet, cushy life in the West End. Well, I have to tell you, there is more to her story. She actually has a story all to herself...

Hana is a companion e-novella to Delirium that I wrote from Hana's point of view. I wanted you all to get a better sense of who she is and let you in on some things even Lena might not know about her... Because trust me, when it comes to the trilogy, we ain't seen the end of Hana yet.

I have some very exciting news about how and when Hana will be released (hint: this month, and possibly for free!). Check back here tomorrow for the exciting news. You won't want to miss tomorrow's announcement! (Get a sneak peak here: http://www.facebook.com/deliriumtrilogy).

Also, the Delirium paperback is out today. Get yourself one, or two...or buy a few for your friends! And don't forget to like the official Delirium and Lauren Oliver pages on facebook, because I'll have plenty of fun content flowing through there over the next thirty days. It's going to be a crazy month, so get ready!
