We Have a Trilogy!

Guys.

GUYS.

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!

So, in appreciation of the MAJOR part you played in the release of this third book, I'm holding a giveaway. There are THREE chances (three=trilogy, get it?) to win a signed, personalized hardcover copy of OF POSEIDON, plus swag. The rules for the giveaway are easy peasy schmeazy:

To enter, you must:

1.) Become a follower of my blog.

                  AND

2.) Tweet a link to this post and include my Twitter handle @byannabanks in the tweet.


This giveaway ends at midnight on November 10th. Now run along, and confetti to you all!

  17. New follower to the blog, but I have been following on Twitter for a while now. I love how interesting these books sound and I am saddened by the fact that my library does not have them, nor do any of my local stores (not that I would have the money to buy anyway). Still, I can't wait to read these books eventually.

  27. I'm reading Of Poseidon right now and really liking it--it's different than other novels (in a totally good way), and it has great voice.

    Congratulations on the trilogy; I look forward to the rest of them!

    Thanks so much!

  38. Whoop Whoop! (Jumping up and down like a little kid)I'm SOOOOOO EXCITED!!! I can't wait for Of Triton and to know there will be a 3rd one!!! Please excuse me while I wipe my drool! :). I am so excited for you, and mostly me lol, but no, totally for both of us (and all the other readers too!) Since I was lucky enough to win a copy of Of Poseidon, definitely pick someone else, but I will still advertise for you anyway. . . . . And you can just let keep me in mind for an advanced copy of Of Triton ;) lol. You know I am DYING to get my hands on it!

I suppose I'll just go with the crowd on this one and post down in the comments too (nothing wrong with triple-checking your locks, then returning to check again, just one more time) Plus my twitter name and google/yahoo name are two different people (never know who might just decide to stalk your twitter, and its a pain to go private)

  59. My daughter just finished Of Poseidon and is overly thrilled to read the next. She just turned 10 years old and reads at an adult level. She read Of Poseidon in less then two days, and both those days she was at school and accidentally forgot the book in my car one of those days. When she really loves a book, she is rarely reading it for more then 3 days. So to say she can read fast is an understatement. It kills her to have to wait a year for the next in the series. She even made me look it up before going to bed when it was coming out. If you would be willing to send her an autographed picture she would be so floored!! Let me know if you can, and I will send you my address. My email is trishglammy@yahoo.com Thanks a million!
