Would You Like To Read Unspoken?

Random House, because they are the best, have put up the first three chapters so you can download them, print them, read them as is... It's all so extremely fancy.

Unspoken chapters: I hope you enjoy them!

And since this is a present from Random House, here is something from me along with it: I got the very talented Jasmin Darnell to draw me some sketches of the main characters of Unspoken. Kami, Angela, Jared, Holly and Rusty are forthcoming, but here is one...




Ash Lynburn, you can be the photographer for my school paper anytime.

I feel super lucky that they are into me putting stuff up on the interwebs. My editor was like 'Oh, you're writing short stories for the onlines? I'll edit them' and I was like 'Oh! This is so strangely fancy...'

Also, that drawing looks exactly the way I'd've pictured Ash Lynburn.

Oooh this is good. I like it muchly! I love Kami and Angela. They're both so kick-ass. Kami is, like, Nancy Drew on steroids. And I'm already totally in love with her relationship with Jared. Can't wait for it to come out for real @_@ ...How on Earth will I be able to wait until September...?

Huzzah! My love for Kami and Angela is like unto the ocean, and Nancy Drew on steroids is a perfect description of Kami. ;) And I am glad the relationship is comin' through OK!

I too find it hard to wait until September. I sit with my cover wrapped around a different book (Divergent by Veronica Roth actually, thanks Ms Roth it fits perfectly) and waaaaaait.

I am at work so I probably should not start reading the 3 chapters now. I shall just be IMMENSELY EXCITED. :D

Thank you for this! :D

Chapters? exciting! I've always loved the "imaginary friend who isn't quite so imaginary" stories. Now, the question is whether or not those three chapters will addict me to the story and I'll end up waiting on pins and needles until the rest of the book comes out. Might be better for my sanity if I wait until I have the book in my hands. ...as long as I don't give in to temptation in the meanwhile... I look forward to September.

Oh this is just wonderful! I cannot WAIT until September!

I love the relationship between Kami and Angela, I am intrigued by Jared and the Lynburn mystery and I am completely freaked out by the end of chapter 3!

I am always so inappropriate with my YA. ;)

But I am so glad you like it, and Kami and Angela's sromance! (Like a bromance, but ladies.)

oh man... that is so tempting. But I know that if I read it it will only make the wait for the book even more torturous. D:

Just this morning I was having a weird little fit that I had NO NEW SARAH TO READ because neither Unspoken nor Team Human were out yet! Whee! Omigod, I'm only a few pages into this preview and I love it so much already. This is the cure for all the so-so YA books that have been trying to kill me with their mundane angsty narrator voices. OH THIS IS SO MUCH FUN THANK YOU RANDOM HOUSE AND SARAHHHHH.

Heh, I am glad my weirdo narrator voice pleases. ;) Hope you enjoy the rest!

Eeeeee, I love this! I was getting along fine, thinking September will come soon, yada yada, and now I can't wait!!!!

I think your writing is getting a lot bolder, which makes me feel all wam and fuzzy inside! I am liking the relationship between Jared and Kami very much!! Will you post more snippets as we get closer to September, please?
sarahtales
Apr. 4th, 2012 10:04 pm (UTC)
I think probably not, as I don't expect people to be super into random snippets until they know the characters a bit more. ;) I will for Unbound and Unbroken, though! And I will be putting up short stories before September, which I hope people will enjoys.

As I generally read 'bold' as 'naughty' (e.g. you are a very bold little girl) I paused a moment and was like 'WHAT is in those chapters?' ;) Glad you enjoyed!

OH MY GOD NOT FAIR I WANT REST OF BOOK NOW!!!!!! SO PRETTY.

Seriously, can it come out sooner? Really excited now. :-)

*beams* I am so glad. I so hope you will like the rest!

It cannot come out sooner, and I yammered on as to why: http://sarahreesbrennan.tumblr.com/post/20486587269/after-reading-that-fantastic-opening-i-have-to-ask (I am sure you know this but I always like to spread the... yammering...)

just finished reading it. My thoughts: AAAAAAAAAHHH!

I love that you have a tall lady who is friends with a short lady. I am 5'9" and the friend closest to me in height is 5'5" so that friendship is very real to me.

Also, absolutely hilarious writing! I feel like this book really lets your writer-y talents shine through. I hope the sharp transitions between levity and seriousness are continued through the series. I consider them to be a sign of a well blended novel.

*beams* Many of my brilliant friends are much shorter than me, and I wander about going 'What's that down there? What did I just agree to?' So, me too. ;)

I did cut loose a bit with this one! I now fear people will be all 'Well, that's crazy and so are you' but... it matters not! I am glad you like it! Levity and seriousness, kind of how I roll. ;)

Ahhhhhh! How can I wait until September!
I love your vivd characterizations and details!
As someone who spends way too many mornings working out how to arrange a lunchtime nap, I am glad to have such an awesome advocate of napping! Perhaps this will finally provide the impetus needed for the website of my dreams, a Zagat-esque guide to napping in various cities.

Angela, the Future Face of Napping. Being so photogenic was bound to come in handy. ;)

I'm so glad you enjoyed! I am a character kinda girl, so I'm pleased they are coming off well!

ACK! I love it. I have reread this galley 4x and I can't wait till it's out so I can talk about it with your other fans. I will also be very sad when it expires from NetGAlley.

Apr. 5th, 2012 12:59 am (UTC)
Wow! Thank you, I'm so pleased you like it. I think I can pretty safely guarantee only you and I have read this book multiple times. ;)

'Tis a long wait I know, but there will be two short stories about Kami, Angela, Ash and Jared in the meantime. So I hope you will enjoy them and I hope... there will be fans for you to talk with one day!
