News to Die For

March 11, 2015 2 Comments

I’m just going to blurt out my news because I’m so excited:  Delacorte is going to publish my next young adult novel!  (Imagine a dancing smiling face here. I REALLY need to learn how to insert emoticons.)  The title:


It’s a little different from my other books. Edgier maybe. More tragic.  More….  Well, you can let me know what you think once it comes out in Fall of 2016.  Here’s the official announcement from Publisher’s Weekly:

Krista Vitola at Delacorte has acquired Amy Fellner Dominy’s latest YA novel, Die for You, about 17-year-old Emma Lorde, whose beloved may do more than just steal her heart when Emma is offered an internship in Rome. 

I’m thrilled because I’ll get to keep working with the same amazing, talented, dedicated people at Delacorte and Random House who are bringing A MATTER OF HEART to the world in just two more months. (May 12th, to be exact!)

So, that’s my news. And why I’m feeling very goosebumpy these days.  Reality will strike when it’s time to start writing the next book and my usual fears and worries will retake control of my stomach. But for now it’s time to celebrate.

Thanks for being a friend…a fan…a reader…(or even just a human being who stumbled onto this).
