If the series is good enough for William Shatner (‘s paper cutout) then it’s good enough for anyone, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is exactly ONE WEEK left until the release of REACHED! And we received some very good news yesterday–Publisher’s Weekly gave REACHED a starred review! That makes two (from Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly). The full review from Kirkus is also available online now.

I’m gearing up for the launch event next Tuesday, November 13th in Salt Lake City, and then it will be on to Chicago on November 14th and Omaha on November 16th! If you are in any of those cities, I’d love to see you there. Then we take a little break for Thanksgiving, and then it’s on to Houston, Miami/Coral Gables, Washington, D.C./Bethesda, and Raleigh! I hope to see any of you there who can make it! For more info on events, click here.

A week or so after the book releases, I’ll be sure to post the official REACHED playlist. I’ve had so much fun putting it together and can’t wait to share it with you.

And, finally, today is Election Day! I feel so blessed to have the chance to vote. Happy Election Day to all of you!

      Good that. I live just outside of Denver and none of my favorite authors EVEr come to visit our beautiful city! Hey, Ally, think you can do some rallying?

    Ok, so I am madly filling the hours until I can get my pre-ordered copy of reached when I came across a copy online at a large book retailer titled”Promised.” Is this an alternate title for another language? Is it a prequel? Is it a Novella??? If there is more out there to read about Cassia, Ky and Xander then I HAVE to have it!!!!!

    Hi! I’m a huge fan of the matched trilogy and I have a question, I was wondering if the books were going to be turned into movies. Just curious I think these books will be awesome movies if you decide to do that.
