I'm so excited I can barely type this, but *deep breath take another deep breath*--Feiwel and Friends wants a third book to continue the story of Galen and Emma! So here's how it's going down:
1.) OF POSEIDON (Spring 2012)
2.) OF TRITON (Spring 2013)
3.) OF Insert Clever Title Here (Spring 2014)
And if that wasn't cool enough, they've informed me that they're planning a special underwater photo shoot for the covers! AHHHHHH! Now, if you're anything like me, you're imagining a gorgeous male model with Galen's abs right at the moment and your mouth is possibly hanging slightly ajar and your eyes are possibly glazed over with lust...*inappropriate squeal*
I mean, I thought OF TRITON would do it for them, that it would be epic enough, but they're all "Moar moar moar!" And yet, as much as I'd love to take credit for this, as flattered as I truly am, I know the real reason they're asking for a third book: YOU.
Yes, you, YA book blogger.
Yes, you, teen reader who picked up OF POSEIDON and loved it.
Yes, you, college student who used the Syrena world to escape hellish exams.
Yes, you, mom who secretly drooled over Galen while your children were napping (this is a non-judging zone).
Your excitement and enthusiasm made this happen. Thank you thank you thank you!
