It happened

*screams* jumps up and down.*
I can honestly tell you that no one is more floored (and happily so) than me. I can’t thank you guys enough for all of your awesome support—the kind words to friends, the reviews, all of the wonderful shout outs you’ve given me and my books has just blown me away. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. XOXO
My husband and kids are on cloud nine with me. We celebrated with champagne, cheesecake, and of course there was chocolate (unfortunately for my jeans, perhaps too much.)
So here are the stats and I’ll get right to the teasers:
#6 New York Times Bestseller List e-books
#10 New York Times Bestseller List print and e-books
#8 Wall Street Journal Bestseller List e-Fiction
Cool huh? I’m loving my miracle.
Onto the books!

EVANESCENT is almost done!!!! Things have moved a tiny bit slower. I blame the piles of Christmas decorations amassing in the center of my living room, asking who in the heck is going to put them away. Where's the Grinch when you truly need him? 
Anyway, I should pen “the end” by next weekend.

ETHEREAL KNIGHTS is already off at the editor, and I’m probably going to have two editors look at it because I’m OCD that way. So whenever they give it back to me I’ll sweep over it and give it to you. Fair warning, those Oliver boys are not at all as sweet and innocent as they would like you to believe. I’m questioning what kind of warning to put on this book. *I’m looking at you Gage*

ELYSIAN, (the FINAL Celestra book) is to be completed in February. It’s in pieces at the moment. I may reveal Skyla’s new series title in a few weeks!!! You may laugh or cry, depending how you feel about it. I’m in love!  

SOMEONE LIKE YOU Gah! How can I not write Morgan and Ally’s story? Morgan is Kendall’s brother who comes into town for seemingly innocent reasons and happens to come across Kendall’s BFF Ally. The first chapter has me reeling in a good way. And can I say Morgan Jordan is ~hot~??? Honest to God, he could teach Marshall a thing or two. It should make me uncomfortable to have such insanely gorgeous, ravenously, vexingly delicious men roaming free in my head and yet I welcome it. (I’m pretty sure my husband doesn’t read my blog. You don’t read my blog, right honey??? It doesn’t matter. You’re the hottest man I know and you’re real, so you win!)
And hitting the NYT Bestseller list hasn’t changed me one bit as evidenced by my to-do list tomorrow:
1.     Allow 11-year-old daughter to cut my hair. (Two inches straight across the bottom, no bangs.)
2.     Continue to chip off the gel nail polish I got roped into trying back in November. It was fun while it lasted. And why is it lasting?
3.     Ignore the large storage bins marked “x-mas” in my living room that have learned to multiply.
See? Still me!
Happy reading!


(Chloe to Skyla at a football game. Marshall is present.)

“Oh hell, Skyla. Why don’t you just kiss me and get it over with?”
Marshall balks in the distance. Yes, Ms. Messenger. Why don’t you kiss her and spark every male in the vicinity into a hormone-induced coma. You’ll be fodder for fantasies well into their golden years.
I watch as Chloe slips it into her mouth and my heart thumps wild in my chest. I can feel Paragon—the world watching over us with an inordinate amount of curiosity. My mother in the sky must be more than slightly amused with what just happened.
Ms. Messenger, I command you to step away from Ms. Bishop.  
“Shut up, Marshall.”


(Wesley meets up with the Olivers behind the English building at Ephemeral)

The blond winces—he narrows in on me with hatred then it hits me. Every muscle in my body freezes. I know him.
“You’re Skyla’s Elysian.”
“Logan Oliver.” He ticks his head back as if things were suddenly casual, as if he and his buddy, who happens to wear my face, didn’t just travel two years in the future to pay me a visit. “My nephew here has been dying to meet you. His fist is looking forward to bonding with your lips—you know, those things you use to hurt Skyla with?”
The dark haired one, steps forward. “Gage,” he says, glancing over me. “I’d tell you to memorize my face, because you’ll be seeing a lot of it, but it looks like you’ve one-upped me and put it on like a mask.” He takes a step and digs his knuckles in my jaw. My teeth bite over my tongue and a squirt of blood runs down my throat.


(Gage and Logan the morning before Skyla sets foot on Paragon. Gage's point of view.)
“It was a vision.” I stamp it out and watch as his eyes widen, his demeanor grows all too serious on a dime.
“What’s going to happen?” Gone is the sarcastic bastard I know and love, replaced with a vulnerable boy locked in a trancelike state, waiting on pins and needles to see if there’s good news on the horizon.
I haven’t shared a vision in ages, especially not one that concerns Logan. Its no wonder the idea sobered him up.
“It was more informative than visual.” I try to sound casual while popping a slice of bread in the toaster. The truth is, there was something about that prophecy that felt more like a night terror. It jarred me. “It was dark.” I shrug. “I saw you and the shadow of this girl.” I glance over at him as his eyebrows twitch with curiosity. “She was Celestra, like you.”

Hope you enjoyed~!
      Have a great week!

I left a comment in the post below this when I read about STL earlier today, and I just had to post again...CONGRATS!!!!! You have earned it and you deserve it!!!

And seriously, another Celestragasm here after all the Celestra/Countenance book updates and teasers. ;) Yep, I'm shamelessly a fangirl!

Brandy said...

OMG OMG OMG!!!!! Im so jumping up and down screaming for you! That is so great! Congrats my friend you fully deserve it. YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!
Whew! As for the teasers... You are killing me. You give just enough to see the Olivers but never lead on if they are dead or really alive ~ gah!~ And as for Wesley (bastard) he desrves Gages smack in the kisser- hee hee!

Someone to Love is next on my list. I cant wait. Ill bet my hubby cant either~ wicked giggle~

Heres to hoping the Grinch puts your decorations away for you, but if its like my house. you better get on it girl. Mad Love to you!

Genevieve Jack said...

Well deserved! I'm not surprised you made the NYT list. You are very talented.

And the gel polish thing is a total nightmare. I got roped into it for my reunion last summer. Nail lady said to soak cotton balls in polish remover and tape them to my fingers. REALLY? Have you seen my life? LOL.

Unknown said...

a HUGE congrats to you. you deserve it. i can't wait for the next books to come out and the teasers only made that worse (in a good way). so so happy for you addison!

kcasanova88 said...

Awesome I am so excited for you. Your are an awesome author and is about time your books made it to New York best time sellers. Great teasers. I am already putting money aside for when your following books are released. I'm on the edge of my seat to see who Skyla ends up with (I'm on Marshall's team) so the count down till next month begins. Have a good week.

Unknown said...

Congratulations, Adfison. I am so, so happy for you!!

Congrats! You may have said this in the past, but I was curious about how your "Celestra" works did in the charts? Your popularity will continue to grow and grow. Way to go girl!

My Book Angel said...

I'm so happy for you! CONGRATS! No one deserves it more! You are AMAZING!!! I love all your books. Celesra reeled me in and still has me. I gotta say, I absolutely love the Oliver boys, but I think I'm secretly team Logan! I have all your books on my kindle and when many daughter is old enough I plan on passing them down to her. I know she'll love them too! I'm looking forward to reading more of your wonderful stories in the future. I can't wait for what comes next! Thank you for all your amazing work!

TNGirl said...

Addison, this is my first post. I just finished Toxic part 2. I have devoured this series, and I must say I am absolutely in love with Logan...I just hope you are too ;) Can't wait for Elysian and Ethereal Knights - which I am hoping sways the Gage and Marshall holdouts to my way of thinking :D

KSinger said...

Congrats!!! I am so thrilled for you. I haven't had a chance to read Someone to Love yet but it is on my to do list. I'm hoping to get to it next week. I love your books and can't wait to read more. I have even got my daughter started on the Celestra series. I hope she enjoys it as much as I do. Keep up the good work.

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 said...

Unknown said...

OMG Addison that is amazing news. congratulations!!! You absolutely deserve it! When I read that I let out a big woohoo forgetting somehow that Khloe was sleeping on my chest lol....After i got her back to sleep i decided it best to read the teasers later incase i celebrated again.. :) So now that I have done so I wanted to tell you how excited I am for you... And for us fans ready to devower another amazing book. Loved the delish teasers as always.!! xoxo

Amy - Oh my gosh you're SO funny! You had me cracking up at Celestragasm. *sigh* Thank you for your comments. I'm all caught up now so I've answered below and over at the indelibles as well. I'm so glad you're enjoying Celestra and thank you for the kind words. I'm still in shock but happily so!! Thank you for reading and for all of your support. :)

Brandy - That's too funny about your hubby reaping the benefits of STL! I hope it works out for you. I really hope you'll enjoy the book. I'm glad you enjoyed all the Oliver testosterone that took over in this post. I find them hard to resist. ;)

G.P. Ching - Aww, thank you! I'm really just humbled by all the attention. I'm happy people are enjoying the book. And lol about your nails!!! I'm right there with you. I don't have any time to soak. And apparently I'm not good at chipping. They live on.

Kim Devine - That's funny because I sometimes feel that I'm tormenting or toying with you guys with some of these teasers. And I feel bad! I did notice they've progressively gotten longer, lol! I hope that helps!?

kcasanova88 - Marshall loves to hear that! He's rooting quite fiercely for himself. True story. And, thank you. I'm just thrilled I get to share the news with you guys!

Andrea @The Bookish Babes - Andrea!!! Thank you girl! xoxo

Denise - Thank you! Celestra does fairly well. A new book in the series will spike in sales for a few days then tapper off. I've had a few of them break the top 100 over at Amazon, and although short-lived, it was a thrill!

kathysuej - Oh, that's beyond sweet. I hope when she's old enough she'll enjoy the books just as much. And, btw, I'm all over those Oliver boys, too, lol! I hope you'll enjoy the POV book. I had a lot of fun with it.

TNGirl - Hi~! Welcome!!! I hope you'll post often. I really do enjoy chatting with you guys. As for Logan I have a special place in my heart for him, too. He's so protective over Skyla. I hope you'll like the end of Celestra. It has a twist (or at least I think so). I could be wrong, lol! And I hope you'll enjoy Ethereal Knights as well! There's tons of Logan in that one.

KSinger - Oh, I hope your daughter enjoys Celestra!! Please tell her I said hello and happy reading! And I hope you enjoy Someone to Love. It's heated but I hope you'll have fun with it! Let me know your thoughts!

Addison Moore said...

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 - Thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed the book. It was a blast for me to pen. ;)

Addison Moore said...

Jami Freed - Jami, thank you! You have been such a wonderful friend and supporter. I really can't thank you enough. I hope your daughter sleeps through the night, lol! But I appreciate you celebrating with me! There has been a lot of woohooing here, too. ;) Gald you enjoyed the teasers!

Unknown said...

OH MY FREAKING GOSH!!! If my husband and children were not sleeping right now I would so be happy dancing and screaming for you.
As always the teasers were AWESOME and they are also KILLING ME. But as they say all good things come to those who wait(not that I have a choice lol). If Elysian and Ethereal Knights were available for pre-order I would have them already.
Congrats again, no one deserves it more. Keep up the good work and keep your amazing imagination going. We (your fans) love you!

Unknown said...

Oh and just to let you know I only got my xmas decorations put away 3 days ago so good luck on yours lol.

jitterbuug48 said...

Love the teasers ( as usual!) and Congratulations, that is awesome and definitely well earned!

Chelsea Fine said...

Anonymous said...

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 said...

H! You are an amazing writer. Love the Celestra series. read it all in a week. I just could not stop! Can not wait for Elysian.... I can so see a movie in the making.. put some faces to those names, although I'm not sure anyone would do them justice. Thanks for unleashing the magical world of your imagination!

Addison Moore said...

Tiffany Garris - lol! I happy danced enough for an entire village. I really appreciate all of your support. I can't thank you enough for all of your kind comments and words of encouragement. It really does keep me pecking at the keyboard!

jitterbuug48 - Thank you! I don't know about well earned but I'll take it anyway!

Chelsea Fine - TY~! I can't wait to hug you this summer! xoxo

Nicci - I love your patience!!! Please tell your mom hi for me~! I can't wait to get the books to you guys!

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 - You blew me away with the fact you read them in a week! I heart you for that! I can't wait to get the final book to you!!!! It all comes to a close, sort of. ;)

Unknown said...

I'm pretty sure you know this already but STL is also #4 on Amazon kindle e books top 100!!! congrats in that too!! And your welcome.. I'm a huge supporter of you and your books because you deserve it. Not only for writing these amazingly addicting and fantastic series but because of how humble and kind you are. How personable and appreciative you are to us, your fans. I've said it before, because its true, but I have never found another author who does as much as you for her fans. I just am so happy I found your series!! Thank you Addison..... for.... well for everything! xoxo ~Jami

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 said...

Yay!!!! I love he fact that you respond to your fans and so quickly might I add just another trait that makes you a great writer!!! thanks!

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 said...

OMG!!!!! please tell me its true that the celestra series is maybe possibly gonna be a tv series??????? please please please???

Jordan Price said...

I read Someone to Love over my Christmas Break and absolutely LOVED it! You did an amazing job with it. I can't wait to read Someone Like You! I'm also planning into looking into your other books soon too. :)

Addison Moore said...

Jami Freed - I know!!! It was SOOOO fun to be there, lol! Also, I have to apologize for letting so many days slip by. I've had such a whirlwind month that I can't seem to catch my breath. I suspect life will crawl back to normal any minute now. ;) Thank you for being patient with me! And as always BIG thank you for your support and your enthusiasm! xoxo

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 - lol! Oh gosh. I was just saying that I felt bad that I let so many days slip by without responding. Yikes! I'm really sorry. I usually try to stay on top of things. I blame the nice weather among other things. ;) And I DO love chatting with you guys. I mean that from the bottom of my heart :) And, yes, Celestra has been optioned for film!!! Well, TV which is just as exciting. I hope they'll do casting one day so I can see a real live Gage and Logan. *dreamy smile*

Jordan Price - Aww! Thank you!!!!!! I'm so happy that you enjoyed it. I planning on sneaking in a writing session of Someone Like you as soon as this week. It's a really nice break from the young adult world. But I do like both! It's fun to let my naughty side out once in a while. ;) Or, rather my characters, lol!

CRAZY4BOOKS2522 said...

O... and as I read I try to picture faces to match these wonderful characters .... it so exciting to think that it will be a reality... I'm sure there will be lots of opinions on that ha ha no pressure!
