Happy Friday Welcome to our Friday Feature!
My Friday Love is a weekly where we want to share what we loved during this past week.
My Friday Love is…
The Power of New Adult Indie’s!!!
..and this post could be super duper long! But, today I just want to focus on the recent shooting stars! Authors who bravely self-published their books and then got acquired by one of the big six Publisher!! I mean, we all by now know about the success of “Beautiful Disaster”, Easy, Slammed, Thoughtless , The Vincent Boys and so on and on…
Losing it by Cora Carmack
Just last week November 14th Cora Carmack announced a 3 book Deal with Harper Collins including “Losing It” . She published Losing It October 15th and only a month later Harper Collins offered her a deal! WOOTT
Note: “Losing It” is still available for only $3.99 on amazon!
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
I have first heard of this book from Deea’s Journal and I got a copy right after she told me how awesome it is! November 5th Katja Millay announced that she just signed a contract with Atria (Simon & Schuster), the same publisher who got already Beautiful Disaster, Slammed and Thoughtless. Woot!!
The old and the new cover:
The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen.
Note: The Secret of Ella and Micha is still available on amazon for $0.99
Crash, Clash and Book 3 by Nicole Williams
Last but not least, HarperTeen acquired Crash, Clash and Book 3 by Nicole Williams! This is technically a YA-NA crossover as the book starts in Senior Year and then moves to College with Clash! And… I am not sure what to think about the cover change. I love the new covers, but… I was so so in love with the “old ones” Anyways! CONGRATS!
I love these covers! Because they are simply perfect and totally catch the books!!!
From both books are already the new HarperTeen versions available, regular eBook Price
New HarperTeen covers
So major congrats to all authors and I am super excited for their success!!!! And I’m amazed, thrilled and happy to see that big publisher finally move along with the hype! It was time!!
Did you hear of any more success stories like these??
Much Friday Love,
