CRASH has landed! In stores today!

A girl. A food truck. A vision. Forbidden love. Nine body bags in the snow.

CRASH. Book one of the Visions series.

If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first of four books from the New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy.Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. Its not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that. What she cant handle is the recurring vision that haunts her. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode...and nine body bags in the snow. The vision is everywhereon billboards, television screens, windowsand shes the only one who sees it. And the more she sees it, the more she sees. The vision is giving her clues, and soon Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and its someone she knows. Someone she has been in love with for as long as she can remember. In this riveting start to a gripping series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to actand act fastto keep her vision from becoming reality.

Book 2, BANG, comes out October 8.

Four books in 2013? Am I insane?

Sure sounds like it. Luckily, the hard part -- writing the books -- is over. And now we have covers for all four books, so I'll list them below with their release dates so you can get them on your calendars.

In non-chronological order, I'll start with my new series. First up is CRASH. It comes out next week, January 8, 2013. You can pre-order the hardcover or e-book here.
Next to it is the 2nd book in the Visions series, BANG, the sequel to Crash. It's due out October 8, 2013. Did you see how I'm not making you wait a whole year for the second book?

 I also have two books coming for my tween readers. Infinity Ring: The Trap Door comes out February 5, 2013. It's the third book in a time travel series written by six different authors. It's like The 39 Clues, only better. ;)  You can pre-order this one, too. The first two books in the series by James Dashner and Carrie Ryan are out already, so if you haven't found them yet, now's the time!

And the third book of The Unwanteds 7-book series comes out September 3, 2013. Isn't this just the greatest cover?

September 3, 2013
Let me know what you think of the covers! Do you like them? Which book are you most excited for?

In the meantime, I am busy writing book 3 in the Visions series and book 4 in the Unwanteds series, so you will have those to read in 2014.
