Today’s the Day! Fall in Love.

Today’s the big day! I’m thrilled to share this collection of short stories from the Fallen world with you. I can’t wait to hear what you think of the book.

Fallen in Love came along as something of a surprise. I wasn’t expecting to write it. My publisher was waiting on Rapture. You were waiting on Rapture. I was waiting on Rapture….

But I wasn’t ready to write it yet. It made me nervous to think about writing “The End” to a series that has meant so much to me. How would I tie up a story that has covered six millennia of time and space and passion? I really had no idea.

So I did what you do when you’re nervous: I procrastinated. My mind ambled over someplace easier…like Arriane. Had she ever had a love story of her own? And what about Roland? Was there a heartbreak hidden beneath that cool façade? I started jotting down a few notes for side stories about the other characters in the series, but I didn’t know what they were adding up to.

Then one day I got a very moving letter from a reader who was going through a difficult breakup. I searched for a way to respond to this person. Eventually, my response came out in a story—a story that turned into Fallen in Love.

Luce and Daniel’s love story is emblematic for eternal love—but it’s far from the only kind of love. There’s platonic love, love that grows slowly over time, even (unfortunately) unrequited love. Over the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure of interacting with many of you—either in person, over email, or in chats like this. And every time you open up about your own romantic experiences, I come away inspired. Fallen in Love is a tribute to my readers and the many different kinds of love you’ve shared with me.

I’m going to be answering questions all week on Random Buzzers  so I hope you’ll come on over and join the conversation.

Thanks so much for reading and enjoying my books,

    He disfrutado muchísimo tus libros. en verdad fue espectacular el rumbo q tomó la historia y más el darnos tanto a imaginar tiempos q muchos habíamos olvidado o q en mi caso no había pensado como por ejemplo el principio de los tiempos.
    Esperaré ansiosa por este libro pues estoy en España.
    Éxitos !
