There has been some hot buzz going around for Victoria Scott's upcoming release, The Collector. I think you'll see what I said it's hot after you watch the trailer, which was released this week.

We are so excited by all the news Julie Kagawa has recently shared with her fans. A movie deal, a new series, and this awesome contest. Be sure to go HERE to find out all that she has going on. (this photo is one Julie recently shared on Twitter that one of her fans had shared with her. HELLO ASH! Not that I need an excuse to share a picture of Ash on here, but WOW this artist is good!).

Yes, you read that right! Per the Twilight Lexicon, Stephenie is headed out on a The Host tour and she's got two hotties accompany her, Max Irons and Jake Abel. All three will be traveling around the country together. Stephenie signing The Host, and two other books at each stop, and Max and Jake signing posters.
