Book Four!

I am SO excited to finally be able to let you guys know that the fourth and final book in the Wings series will be called:

DESTINED

I am sososo excited for this fourth book and the title is just so fitting! Luckily, Amazon.uk listed Destined a little early so I got to officially tell you the title just a bit sooner than I expected.

Before you ask, I don't have cover art yet, but I expect that next month--early November at the latest.

(Also, in case anyone is worried, yes, I do realized that Destined is also the name of the new House of Night book that is coming out this fall and that is the reason it has taken so long to announce. But the sales and marketing people finally decided that our books are so different--not to mention coming out six months apart--that there would be minimal confusion. I'm really, really excited they let me keep the title because, seriously, it just works so well with the whole book!)

In other exciting news, I finished the first draft of the first book in my new series today!!!! I still have several weeks of editing to do before it's even ready to go to my editor for approval, but it still feels like a big step and make me super happy today!

Ciao!

I'm with Kate. It's called Destined b/c Laurel will end up with Tam, right?! lol. SHE BETTER! :O!

KARI said...

Love your books and you are an excellent writer! You have an amazing imagination and make it seem almost plausible that there are faeries. I wish it were true. I am 50+ and can't wait for the 4th book. I too live in AZ (Scottsdale) and have been in the Valley since 1970.

WOW! I love that title! I'm reading Illusions right now! I have been forcing myself not to read it because I read them so quickly and I know that the next one won't be coming out for a while.

Alida said...

I would love Laurel to go with Tam, but I don't think I want Chelsea to go with David!!?? :(

hyakukiseki said...

Omg I'm sooo excited! Throughout my whole weekdays of this week, i couldn't read Illusions due to school. And Friday night I went to a birthday party. AND RIGHT WHEN I CAME HOME, I picked up Illusions and read it from start to finish till 4AM. And now I can't believe I have to wait almost another year just for the next book! Arrrghh, this is agony. Anywho, I REALLY CAN'T WAIT FOR DESTINED TO COME OUT<3333 She's destined to be with Tamani, yes? YES??? :D

Patty Springer said...

its so bad that Destined is the last book i cant wait but first i need to wait on my book illusions

A Blue Million Miles said...

I'm so anxious to read "Destined" when it comes out!! I've just finished "Illusions" and I must say that it was a most wonderful read. I love this entire series. It always draws me away to a more inspiring place.

Anonymous said...

Seems like I'm going ton wait forever! I read the series about 5 or 6 times.I love the series and I probally will forever.So excited! I <3 it.

Jamison probably dies in Destined because he said his job isn't done to Laurel when she asks him why he didn't join the tree when he wanted to.

I am so exited for book four! Me and my 7 sisters love your books!!!! We all think you are going to be the next twilight! :D

I love your books! I'm can't wait until destined comes out!I was wondering, why is Illusions called Wild in the UK? Because I have the third book but the title of it is Wild not Illusions but it is the same book?

Sweetness B3 These are the best books ever! I can't wait! I have everyone I know hooked on them!

Jenna said...

omigosh i need tamani to hook up with laurel and david with chelsea
please please please!!!!
but i love the series its wonderful

val♥ said...

The LAST book, OMG LAUREL you better end with TAMANI, honestly.. if she doesnt end with him, this series will be the biggest dissapointment to me :(, tamani is just awesome(if world had more man like him...what a wonderful word :p) Anyways.. I mus confess..sometimes i wanted to punch Laurel..to see if she ever realized that she has to be with Tamani. By the way, David got very intesnse in the last book.. too intense for my taste.. and as yuki said. i never "saw" what she sae on him.. sorry David, truth hurts..

I have very high expectations on this book..!!♥

Kat :) said...

I am soo pumped for this last book!! By the way what an awesome title. i literally just finish reading Illusions and hate it when books just end in the middle of an awesome bit.
SSOOOOO looking forward to the final book.
By the way, I'm totally team David!!
Anyone know the date of when it comes out????

I'm going to become a famous author one day. I could actually do without out people knowing me, but I want the world to know my books. I want to be able to do what you've done. It's my dream and I won't give up on it no matter what my parents say. This is my last in highschool and the only reason I'm going to go to college is to improve my writing. Since the fourth grade I've dreamt of this; how did you get to be so wonderful?
