It’s already know for a while that The Selection trilogy became an actual series.
Two more books were announced. The Heir, the fourth book, is expected on May 5th. However the publication date for the 5th book is still unannounced. But we still have some other things to look forward to in the mean time!
The novella The Selection Stories: The Queen and The Favorite has been cancelled, but for an amazing reason. I’m already excited!!
Yes, your preorder has been cancelled because the e-book of The Favorite and the paperback bind up of The Queen and The Favorite are no longer happening. At least, not in March. Why? Good question. One of the great things about the world of The Selection is that the more time I spend with it, the better it gets. It was amazing (if not a little weird) to see a young Clarkson through Amberly’s eyes, and it was a special opportunity for me to show you just how hard Aspen was fighting for America in his own words. America, Marlee, Maxon, Aspen, and Amberly have all gotten to take a turn sharing their voice, but recently, I felt there was one more character I wanted to give just a tiny, itty bitty, little moment to: Celeste.
With the timing of everything, a few things had to be rethought, and my hope was that you’d be able to have all the stories, in print, in one place. So, instead of simply getting The Favorite in March, in OCTOBER you will be getting a HARDBACK bind up with the following:
- The extended version of The Prince
- The Guard
- The Queen
- The Favorite
- Three scenes with Celeste (that I still need to name… hmm.)
- The second epilogue to The One
- Some other stuff
- Oh, and did I mention that this will be illustrated?
