Inside Secrets of Must-read Teen Fiction Series

Hot Fiction Giveaways, Author Interviews,
Book Trailers, Breaking News and more . . .

The second book in Romily Bernard’s Find Me series is out this week! One of many great things about REMEMBER ME (and the series) is that its protagonist is a sharp, female hacker- not exactly a character type we see too often, but we should! REMEMBER ME is rife with the dark, sticky stuff as well as romance. What’s not to like? Thanks for being here, Romily!

YA Series Insiders: Besides your main character, do you secretly have a soft spot for another character?

Romily Bernard: Milo!! What’s not to love about a hot, smart, and FUNNY guy?

YASI: Who is your favorite character to write and why?

RB: Milo again! He got all the best lines and his reasons to refuse to play by the rules were so seductive

YASI: Who would you want to play your main character in a movie?

RB: Emma Stone

YASI: What motivates you to write even when you don't feel up to it?

RB: Heh. Pure drive. I don’t believe in muses—at least I don’t believe in mine. I force myself through my 2k words a day even if I have to beat my head against my desk to do it.

YASI: What scene made you cry while you were writing?

RB: Actually…the last scene in TRUST ME. That’s the third book for the series and it caught me completely by surprise. I had an unexpected twist and an unexpected emotional response and I NEVER cry. Ever. I tell people it’s because my heart is made of tar.

YASI: Did you write yourself into any corners?

RB: All the time. Unfortunately, that’s the way I work

YASI: Any advice for writers currently working on a series?

RB: Make yourself a Book Bible. It’s a place you’ll keep all your character and setting descriptions. If you’re really smart, you’ll also include outlines from previous books so you can quickly assess what you’ve done before.

YASI: If you could pull one thing from your series world to have in real life, what would it be?

RB: Griff. He’s actually based on my husband so this answer is kind of cheating, but yeah I’d pull Griff.

About the Book

In the sequel to FIND ME, Wick Tate, sarcastic teen hacker, is back and once again dealing with criminals and corrupt cops…and a brooding new love interest. Will Wick persevere when some secrets refuse to stay hidden?

Wick had thought her troubles were over.

But she should’ve known better.

Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.

The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.

REMEMBER ME is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of FIND ME is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before!

About the Author

I graduated from Georgia State University with a Literature degree. Since then, I’ve worked as a riding instructor, cell phone salesgirl, personal assistant, groom, exercise rider, accounting assistant, and, during a very dark time, customer service rep.

So don’t let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.

cassandraclare:

Hi, Cassie! You have so many current projects (Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours, Magisterium), that it’s really hard to keep track of all of them. I know you don’t have set release dates for most of them, but could you please make an updated timeline of the book order, and when they might possibly be coming out? I can’t wait to read Lady Midnight! — buffylives

Sure. I went ahead and updated the timeline I posted earlier below, to reflect Shadowhunter Academy.

brookeelizaxo said: Hi Cassie! I love your books so so so sooo much! I finished City of Heavenly Fire and it was amazing. I was wondering when the rest of your novels were being released (TDA, TLH, TWP, etc)? Are there set dates or years for the releases? Thank you for such wonderful series! :)

Shadowhunter Chronicles:

City of Heavenly Fire wrapped up the Mortal Instruments series. The next installment of the Chronicles is The Dark Artifices, which takes place five years after CoHF. You can read about them here.

There are three Dark Artifices books: Lady Midnight, Lord of Shadows, and Queen of Air and DarknessLady Midnight is tentatively scheduled for release in late 2015 though it is not definite yet.

The Last Hours, the sequel series to The Infernal Devices, begins publishing shortly after Lady Midnight. You can read about it here. It’s about the children of the Infernal Devices characters.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy is a sort of follow-up to the Bane Chronicles, in that it is 10 e-book stories that follow Simon from his arrival at the newly re-opened Academy in Idris for Shadowhunter training to the day he Ascends. You can read about it here.

So the order of books is:

The Bane Chronicles print edition, November 11, 2014

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, starting early 2015

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices 1)

Chain of Gold (The Last Hours 1)

Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices 2)

Chain of Iron (The Last Hours 2)

Queen of Air and Darkness  (The Dark Artifices 3)

Chain of Thorns (The Last Hours 3)

That carries us through for quite a few years, so other than saying that the Shadowhunter Chronicles is intended to wrap up permanently with an installment called The Wicked Powers, I think that’s all I can say right now.

Magisterium

The Iron Trial, the first book in the Magisterium series, came out September 9, 2014. There will be an installment of Magisterium every September for the next four years.

The second book, The Copper Gauntlet, is scheduled for September 2015.

Hope that helps!

It has been A Week. A really good one! Here is a round-up:
The ALL THE RAGE cover was revealed on MTV by katrosenfield, who I am a huge fan of. (Have you read her novels? She is so good, so so good.) In anticipation of its release, the first chapter went live the day before and you can read it here. I’m so thrilled and grateful to everyone who shared in the excitement with me and helped spread the word about both. Thank you so much.
ARCs are in!!!! The second picture in this set is courtesy St. Martin’s Press’ Griffin Teen Twitter. A few hours later, my own copies arrived. (Obligatory headcrab shot.) I will be launching my newsletter in October, and I will be giving one of these beauties away to a random subscriber when the first issue launches. There’s still time to subscribe, soooo….
Related: can’t describe how good it felt to hold in my hands after working on it for so long. 
Meanwhile, my good friend catagator wrote an extraordinarily kind blog entry about ALL THE RAGE (so kind) and is super super super generously giving away 3 pre-orders of the book to US/CAN residents. You can check that out and enter here. (I hope you will!) Thank you a whole bunch, Kelly.
I had THE BEST time doing a podcast with sarahmoon and andantepiano over at Clear Eyes, Full Shelves. We talked for over three hours about All Manner of Things and the last installment went live on their website this week. You can listen to Part One, Part Two and Part Three respectively by clicking on each of the links. I have a been a long-time fan of their podcast (you should subscribe) and being a guest on it was a big deal for me. And fun and funny as hell. True story: Sarah had to adjust the audio levels when I started talking about Supernatural because that is how ahem passionate I get about the show. Thank you so much, ladies!
PLEASE REMAIN CALM, the sequel e-novella to my zombie novel, THIS IS NOT A TEST, is in its last stages of editing and we have a cover! It’s pretty sweet and I can’t wait to show it to you. The release is slated ahead of ALL THE RAGE, so you will be able to buy it within the first few months of 2015. I will share when there is a firm release date. Like all my best laid plans when novel-writing, the story evolved A LOT while I wrote it. I hope you dig what happens next…
Also, getting PLEASE REMAIN CALM handed in is why I’m behind on my ask box! I have some outstanding asks waiting for my attention and I hope to get to them in the next two weeks. My email situation is similar. If you have been waiting to hear back from me about anything, hopefully you’ll be getting a reply soon. Thank you so much for your patience!
Here this heart is for you, I don’t need it because I have to go make some characters sad and it only gets in the way <3
