want to read the first two chapters of crossed?

UPDATE: You can find the first two chapters of CROSSED here.

Well…you can! The first two chapters will be posted on ew.com exclusively tomorrow: Tuesday, September 13th. I’ll make sure to link to the chapters here on the blog when they go up. I hope you enjoy! I can’t wait for this next part of the story to be out in the world. I care about these characters and worked really hard to make sure this part of their story was the best it could be. I hope you enjoy the chapters! (The first two chapters are also included in the MATCHED paperback, out September 20th, but you can read them a whole week early online.)

And, as we get closer and closer to the release of CROSSED, Penguin has put together an awesome tumblr site here where they’re posting one MATCHED fact per day to get everyone all ready for CROSSED. So if you want to make sure everything is fresh in your mind for when you read the second book, this is for you! It’s so much fun. The first fact went up today and there are many more on the way as we countdown the release to CROSSED.

November 1 is coming up!!

    Hey,
    Just wanted to say I’m chewing my fingernails to bits waiting for Crossed to come out.

    Also, when I told my online reading and writing buddies that you signed my nook at the book festival Saturday, they couldn’t get over it. Some were stomping their virtual feet because no famous/ awesome authors visit where they live. Everybody is jealous of my nook. So thanks! Nice to meet you. ♥

      Ameera, optioned means that Disney bought the rights to the movie. As of now, though, there isn’t much more news. They haven’t started casting it, etc. :) But if there ever is more news, I will be sure to post about it here! :) Thanks for your kind words!

    They’re good! I really like being able to see into Ky’s mind and understand him a little better. And I’m glad that Xander is still a part of all this.

    It took me a while to really get into the story so I stopped reading it for about a week…but I am sorry I did because I started reading it again this morning and could NOT PUT IT DOWN…I was crying at the coffee house like an idiot all day today because I had to see what happened. Its a beautiful story and now that Cassie’s soul seems to have been awakened I can’t wait to seewhere it leads her.
