The Silver Lining . . .

So, I have some news that some of you might not like very much . . . but don't worry, it has a big, shiny, silver lining.


I think I'll tell you the kinda bad news before the good stuff. Bad news should always come first. It's like eating your veggies before you get a brownie, right? I mean, nobody wants to eat broccoli after eating a brownie. Crap, now I really want brownies . . .

The Bad News:
The release date of THE SAVAGE GRACE has been rescheduled from December 27th, 2011 to March 13th, 2012.

Unfortunately, this means I have to wait an additional 2.5 months before I can tell you all what happens to Grace, Daniel, Talbot, and Jude. (And I may possibly die from the anticipation.)

The Silver Lining (a.k.a. The Brownies):

1. One of the reasons Egmont decided to push the release date is because they want to send me on tour (which has previously been hard to do during the Holiday season). Hopefully, this means I'll be visiting a town near you soon!

2. We are planning an exciting "Full Moon Campaign" starting this October. During the full moon of each month leading up to the release of TSG, exclusive Dark Divine related content or special offers will be released to readers (which will hopefully help tide us all over until TSG's release in March).

3. With the release of THE LOST SAINT in paperback this November 22nd, the book will include the prologue and first chapter of THE SAVAGE GRACE to also help ease the wait.

4. The extended lead time means that there will now be ARCs (advanced reader copies) of THE SAVAGE GRACE! If you are a book blogger or reviewer and would like to request an ARC, please send your info to readbree (at) gmail (dot) com and I will forward it along to my publicist.

[Please note: All requests will be forwarded to my publicist even if you don't receive a reply from me. I still have to actually finish edits of TSG and I sadly can't respond to all email. Also, my publicist has the final say on who will receive a review copy. Sending a request will not guarantee that you'll get one--but I really hope you do!]


That's all for now. If you know anyone , or have blog readers, who would appreciate knowing that THE SAVAGE GRACE will now be releasing on March 13th, 2012 please share this info with them.

Now off to go find some brownies with silver linings . . . .

Strangely enough, this is what I found when I googled images of "brownies with silver liner":

(David Tennant: Just as yummy as a brownie with a silver lining!)
I'll take it!

Yay for silver lining! :) And, I can wait a few more months, especially since the release date is the day before my anniversary. I'll just ask for the book as an anniversary present. :D

While I'm sad that I have to wait longer to find out what happens (I finally just read TLS like two weeks ago and I want MORE!), I'm glad it's for such an awesome reason! And the new release date is five days before my birthday, so thanks for the awesome bday present ;)

Okay, if you come to ATL, I will do everything in my power to somehow get us on TVD set. I don't know exactly how that will come about, but we have several months to plan. (Stalking might be involved, but don't tell anyone.)

SilviaCook said...

I am extreamlly. Sad I actually feel sad I was actually starting to count the days. The dark divine was the first and only book I. Ever finished reading anD I just loved the lost saint.well please don't change the date again even though I'm all the way in London and it might be released on a different date here I really can't wait. :)

Nicole- I will so come to ATL is you can get us on the set of TVD. Warning: I'll probably at like a squealing high school girl the whole time.

Silvia- Sorry to disappoint. But the good news is, I don't think the US release date will change the UK date. (But I don't know when it's scheduled to release in the UK, though.)

That's so exciting they're sending you on tour! I'm bummed we have to wait a couple more months to read Savage Grace, but going to be so worth the wait. I'm crossing my fingers they send you to TX :)

Cecilia said...

Um id Ed Speelers really playing Daniel?! He would make a better Talbot! You should find someone else to play Daniel!

Cecilia said...

And if you could possibly come to Columbia sc i would LOVE to meet you i love your books.....it would be amazing if you came to rvhs (my high school!) that would make my year!

Rudi May Hart said...

This is really weird first The Lost Saint came out on my birthday and then Savage Grace is released on my Dads :) can't wait for the cover they're always so nice.

Bree Biesinger Despain said...

Cecilia- No casting for a TDD movie has happened yet. The rights for the movie have been optioned, but that doens't necessarily mean one will ever get made. But we can all cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Heather Dixon said...

Oh, that is a bright silver lining! Very excited for you. ^_^ (Also: David Tennant is a severe hottie.)

Cecilia said...

Well if there ever are casting dates I would love to know the when and where's because auditioning for the role of Grace would mean the world to me.

Emily H said...

Bree your books are amazing. Grace and Daniel have perfect chemistry. I would love these books to be put into a movie or better yet a tv show. Whenever im feeling bad about myself i read these books and then I'm suddenly happy. As an aspiring author myself I hope to one day be at least half as successful as you.
