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.

FIRE & FLOOD Paperback Release Date

Victoria Scott

I can’t believe we’re already talking Fire & Flood paperbacks, but alas, time flies. The hardcover edition came out February 25th of this year, about five months ago. And I just found out that the paperback version will release in…drumroll…six months! That’s right, Fire & Flood will be available in all kinds of paperback glory at bookstores everywhere on January 27, 2015. It looks like it’ll be priced at $8.99, which makes me super happy, as that’s a dollar cheaper than most YA paperbacks I see on shelves.

THE COLLECTOR Reaches 5,000 Reviews

Victoria Scott

To keep myself motivated while writing, I set goals. Lots and lots of goals. Most of which have nothing to do with sales. I celebrate gaining a certain number of readers. I celebrate reaching word counts in my work-in-progress. I celebrate seeing a crowd at one of my events. I make my goals specific and attainable, while giving me something to stretch for. One of my non-sales goals I set last April was for The Collector to reach over 5,000 reviews on Goodreads. As a debut book being published by an indie press with a minuscule marketing budget, this was definitely a stretch goal. But I’m thrilled to say this is one goal I can strike off my list.

FOUR HOUSES Cover Reveal

Yesterday, the new cover for Four Houses was sent to the V Mafia. Jeremy West of Red Creative Design created this baby, and I just lurve it. It captures a part of the story so perfectly, and the vivid colors and simple design are eye-catching as a thumbnail, which is crucial. Four Houses releases July 22, 2014, and will be an extended version of the original story. Add it to your to-read on Goodreads here, and check out the cover below!

FOUR HOUSES Release

Victoria Scott

Yesterday, I promised you guys I had a fun announcement to make. Well, here it is: Four Houses will be soon be available to readers. This dark YA short story was originally published in 2011. It sold incredibly well for a shortie, and the reviews were great. So good, that my agent and I eventually made the decision to pull it and consider either A) Combining it with other stories for a full anthology, or B) Sending it to a publisher so it could gain greater exposure.
