The one year Anniversary of Falling Into You…Surprise!




It’s the one year Anniversary of publishing Falling Into You!

One year ago today, my husband and I hit “publish” on a book that would change our lives. We’d written the book in a frenzy of desperation, watching titles climb the charts and wondering if we too could put out that kind of story. We wanted to write something different, something daring and risky and difficult. We wanted to use our lives, the stories we’d collected over the years, friends who’d gone through hard times, our own difficulties, and tie it all together with a liberal dose of fiction.

Thus was Falling Into You born. We wrote in a fever, hunched over our laptops, hoping it was okay, hoping it would touch the tastebuds of the wildly ravenous NA audience and be found satisfying.

One year ago today, we moved our mouse a few centimeters, clicked the button, and rolled the dice. What if people hate it? What if it doesn’t sell? What if…what if…what if? Hitting that “publish” button is scary, every single time. No matter how many times you do it—and we’ve done thirty-some times now—it’s still nerve-wracking. That moment, one year ago? Possibly the most tension-fraught moment of our career to date.

Until now.

Today we hit “publish” on something people have been asking about since Falling Into You came out: a third book in the Falling series. It’s called Falling Under, and it’s about…well, you know what? I don’t think I can even begin to tell you. All I will say is Colt and Nell are in it, Jason and Becca are in it, and it’s intense, in a way not even the first two are. And we’re even more nervous and excited about this one than we were FIY.

We’ve had one hell of a ride since FIY started its meteoric rise on the charts. That book established our brand, our style. It propelled us into a place Jack and I never, in our wildest dreams, ever thought we’d be. We still can’t believe that this is our life, that we get to write stories for a living, that we get tap into everything we’ve been through, tap into all of our creativity and all of our talents, and use them to make a living.

So, as we publish this book, we would like to take a moment and say thank you. To all of you, everyone who bought our books, who shared the word with friends and family members and coworkers and blogosphere buddies. You’ve made our career possible. You’ve given us a gift, with each review, each purchase, each share, that we can never repay. We love you. Each and every one of you. We’re thankful for you, and we always will be. We will continue to write books as long as you continue to buy them and review them and share them. (Here’s a secret: word of mouth is still the biggest factor of our success. Every time you tell a friend and introduce them to our books, you are doing us the biggest favor possible.) We will write books that will, hopefully, move you, touch you, challenge you, entice you and make you hot and make you cry. And trust me, we have so many stories to tell that we could write every single day for five years and I’d still have a Notes app full of story ideas.

So…thank you. We love you. I hope you enjoy Falling Under, and please, if you do…tell a friend.

Until the next time I hit “publish” (in April),



P.S. The book will be available EVERYWHERE today! It’s already live at ibooks and kobo. Amazon and B&N should have it up very soon!

    I dropped you a line after I read Falling Into You. I have let it be known at work , how great the book is. I have read Falling Into Us and am part way thru Falling Under. Sweet Baby Jesus, you are a fabulous writer. I am reading all your books, and buying them in paperback when I can get them. Thank you for such entertaining stories that stick with the reader long after the book has been finished. I have to admit, Colt is my favorite character!
