Super Exciting Book Deal News!

Victoria Scott

After finishing the sequel to Salt & Stone, I was faced with the thrilling question authors occasionally get to ask themselves: What’s next? I had a couple of ideas for Scholastic, and got to work on drafting proposals. One of the those proposals was, admittedly, way too dark/twisted/warped for the publishing house to buy. I went on to finish that manuscript, and promise one day you will get to read it in some fashion. But I can’t talk about that book…yet.

FIRE & FLOOD Dutch Cover

Victoria Scott

Hey. Hey, you. Guess what? GUESS WHAT?! I just saw the super surreal Dutch cover for Fire & Flood, and I think it’s cooler than a roller coaster ride through Awesometown (that’s a thing). It’s basically the same design, but apparently they’re calling it Water & Fire for translation’s sake. Also, you know how the race itself is called the Brimstone Bleed? Well, in Dutch it’s the Sulpher Loop. What?! I don’t know. All I do know is I’d want no part of the Brimstone Bleed or the Sulpher Loop, IRL.

Halfway to SALT & STONE

You guys have been such patient readers. Just look how patient you’ve been! It’s been six months since Fire & Flood released and you haven’t once begged, pleaded, or threatened me for the sequel. Oh, wait, yes you have. I suppose you’ve been about as patient as I have waiting for Salt & Stone ARCs to land on my doorstep (that’s a zero-percent patience level, just so we’re clear). Today, because you’ve been so kind and well-behaved (no, false), I’m giving you a few spoiler-free lines from book two. Let’s see if that’ll tide you over for a few weeks.

5,000 Facebook Likes Celebration

Victoria Scott

I still remember the day Facebook sent me an email suggesting I change my personal page to a business one. Me? A business? Nah. I was just a girl who wrote one little book. I mean, come on, I had less than four hundred “friends.” But I looked into it, and found that Facebook limits the number of friends a person can have to five thousand. Five thousand? Five thousand? There’s no way I’d ever reach that many, so what did it matter?

FOUR HOUSES Release Day

Victoria Scott

I’m beyond thrilled to announce that FOUR HOUSES is officially available. I would never have considered bringing this short story out of hibernation if it wasn’t for the many, many emails, tweets, and messages you guys sent me over the last year. So, thank you. This one is for you. A big shout out to the editor at Harper Teen Impulse who helped mold and inspire the newest version of FOUR HOUSES. You may have left Harper Teen, but your impact on this story stays.
