  1. Yay! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed Teagan and Garrett’s story. I love them so much and want such good things for them. Their journey breaks my heart. We’ve moved this topic to the Single Titles forum. Thank you for starting it! I’m going to butt out now, so you all can discuss freely... 🤗
  2. Hi! It was important to me that my readers could watch just Afterburn/Aftershock without committing to anything else they didn't want and Passionflix assured me that it would be available widely for anyone who wanted to purchase just Jax & Gia's movie. I haven't fully grasped all the logistics, but Passionflix has licensed streaming rights for their catalog of major studio romance movies only for specific territories. I can't remember if they said US only or North America only. For those who don't want to subscribe or unable to subscribe due to territory restrictions, Passionflix's original programming would be available to watch just by purchasing that one program (movie, series, etc.). So, if I understand it correctly, you'll be able to purchase just Afterburn/Aftershock via the Passionflix service without subscribing to a monthly commitment. You'll also be able to purchase the movie via the iTunes store or on Amazon and possibly other streaming services we didn't discuss. Eventually, DVD's will be available, too. Once purchase links become available, I'll be sure to list all the ways you can get the movie on the website. In the meantime, casting calls go out this week. I'll have our Jax & Gia to show you soon! Sylvia
  3. The important thing to note about this announcement is the bold and underlined word: "to be published following Day's upcoming Blacklist duology." These are two separate series. Lily doesn't work with a family record label, Ireland does. Hope this clarifies!

    One With You

    Hi, Stelladeer. I'm not seeing a question here. If you have one, please let me know. My team doesn't give me updates on reviews, discussions, etc. Those are for readers, not writers.
  5. Well, the first scene from Chapter 2 was technically posted long ago:Â http://www.sylviaday.com/2015/06/15/one-with-you-excerpt-2/ There were some modifications during the writing process, which have been included. Readers in Australia and New Zealand will start receiving their downloads in a matter of hours, since it's already Monday there. From that point, downloads will start working their way around the globe until the US catches up timezone-wise, so there won't be any more excerpts or snippets posted. We weren't able to post many this time around, to avoid giving away spoilers or causing worrying speculations.
  6. Hi! The page count on the retailer sites isn't accurate at this time. I'm not sure when those guesstimates are updated to reflect the actual numbers. I've seen the typeset book, however, and the last page of One with You is page 462. In total, there are seventeen chapters in OWY, which is less than in the previous books, but most of the individual chapters are considerably longer. Not much longer now! 46 days...
  7. You can catch the last of this week's exclusive video #interviews on Heroes & Heartbreakers today!

  13. Â I'm not sure about the lengths of time listed and there are only 3 books in the Dream Guardians series, not 4, but the rest looks right. Â The Dream Guardians series isn't with a publisher, neither is Dangerous--which is a series of two very short stories (each installment is the length of two Crossfire chapters)--so they have to be fit in around my contracted works. Â The Sapphire Trilogy is with a publisher, who isn't sure they want me to continue with the series. Since they own the rights to it, until they decide I can't continue. Â The Renegade Angels is with the same publisher as Crossfire and they prefer that we all focus on Crossfire and not work on other series between Crossfire books. Â Hope this helps!
  14. Keep an eye out around 4 PM ET on Sunday...
  15.   No, the release of the last two Crossfire books aren't hitched in any way to the television series, which has been in development for over a year now. When I spoke with the producer last, it was mentioned that he expected the TV series would launch sometime in 2015 (if it happens - remember, Hollywood option deals sometimes never result in anything) and we talked about the fact that Crossfire would be over then and I would be in the thick of the Blacklist series at that time.   The finale of Crossfire is dependent solely on when I finish the story.   Sylvia
  16.   The Amazon.de listing is an erroneous listing and my German publisher has been working for the last week to get it removed. There was also an erroneous listing on Amazon.fr a few weeks ago that my French publisher worked to have removed, and one on Amazon UK last year that my UK publisher had to get removed.   Foreign "rogue" listings happen all the time, all over the world, and they're meaningless. They're no clue to the release date, because a release date hasn't been set. They're just errors with imaginary dates.   Contractually, no foreign publisher can release their edition until after the US does, and Penguin USA hasn't yet set a date.   Sylvia
  17.   I sincerely wish you all the best.   Sylvia
  18.   tbidwell,   I think you mean well but your post comes across (to me) as abrasive, accusatory, and demanding. I know it's been 11 months. It's taking so long to come out because I'm still writing the series. I will write until I'm done and completely happy with the finale of a story that means so much to me. When a date is set, I will shout it from the rooftops. In the meantime, it honestly does no good to ask me when the books are going to release. When I have a date, I'll share it. If I'm not sharing, it's because there isn't anything to share.   Sylvia
  19. Â Yes, we'll be doing more live Q & As. April was rough because Jennifer, my moderator, had a baby (exciting!) and I've been on the road a lot. May is a rough month, too, but I'm working on it!
  20. Â The publishers never make me do rewrites. I typically get very few editorial comments, which is one of the reasons why I also use a freelance editor in my writing process. In my ten year career, I've never been asked to rewrite a book. I'm much harder on myself than anyone I work with.
  21. Â I wish I could post the whole book, so we could talk about it!!
  22. Â Why would I want to know? That's not a rhetorical question, I'm sincerely asking. There is no point in being the bearer of bad news if the recipient of that news can do nothing about it. For example, it's one thing to tell a friend that you overheard their neighbor complaining that their car is leaking fluid on the street and making a mess. The friend could fix their car. Bad news, positive outcome. But telling a friend that you overheard their neighbor saying the blue color of their car is hideous serves no purpose but to create ill-will and hurt the friend. The color of the car is not going to be changed, so nothing can be done. Bad news, bad outcome. That's not the best example, of course, but then it's not yet 8 AM and I'm not caffeinated yet. Forgive me (and any typos I might've missed). Â My mother was very strict about filtering news, so I make concious decisions in that regard. She taught me to always question the purpose behind passing along bad news. Is it helpful to do so? If not, then don't do it. Â I'll have to tell her about this post when she returns from visiting our family in Japan. She'll be tickled that I quoted one of her many childhood lessons. (See, Mom? I was paying attention. )
  23. Â I have often wondered over my ten year career what posts like this are supposed to accomplish? Am I supposed to feel bad, to cry, to stress out, to fight with my publisher...? Why would anyone want to inflict that sort of unpleasantness on someone else? It's so small and cruel, I can't wrap my head around it. Is there something positive that's supposed to be taken from such a post? Or is it just a passive-aggressive way of being a bully? Â As a reader myself, I have authors I adore because of the characters and stories they've gifted me with. I feel tremendous gratitute toward them for being the conduit through which I've met characters I love and experienced situations that have deep sentimental value to me. I would never abuse those writers for the time it takes them to craft their books or the professional circumstances they may face. I owe them a huge debt and I never forget it. Â As a writer, I learned long ago not to let anything affect me personally. It's a well-known fact that artists must have a "thick skin" and mine's titanium. So, tbidwell, save your fingers from typing demands passed on from elsewhere. The books will come out when they come out. I will carry on as I've always carried on. In the end, the only thing that really matters is that I've written the best books I can. Â Sylvia
  24.   I haven't finished the series yet, no. I'm very, very, very aware that everyone wants the book. I'll let you know when a date is set.
  25. Â Â Also follow the Twitter hashtag #SneakSnippet - You'll find CBY snippets pop up now and then...
