Great News!

I am so happy to announce that HOPELESS will soon be available in stores!  Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, has purchased print rights for HOPELESS.  The electronic rights will remain as is. So that means we’ll have a beautifully crafted print copy sitting on bookstore shelves!  I’ll update everyone on the release date soon.




I’m sooo waiting for a paperback version of Hopeless ! I really need it for my booksheves ! Love you books ! thank you

Ahh loved Hopeless!! Does anyone know if there will be a second part or is this a stand alone? Hope someone knows!

Just finished hopeless. One of my new favorites. I could not put it down.

I just read the book today and I LOVED it! So glad I’ll be able to purchase an actual book copy! yay!

Congrats on breaking the ground for all who follow you! I read electronically only when in dire need of reading material– I love the feel of paper pages between my fingers. You are an inspiration to not only your readers, but struggling writers as well.

I absolutely loved this book! Downloaded it on my kindle and could not put it down. Colleen now has a new fan :-) keep up the good work!

Loved Hopeless, just finished a few minutes ago.

Also, huge Avetts fan as well. If its the beaches :)

yay finally can buy print book, so happy and thank you who has bought and want to issue in print version :)

that’s really great news, congrats, Colleen, you deserve it, you’re so talented!

woo hoo!!!best news ever :D

Congratulations. Not that it should come as such a surprise considering the amazing turnout we had for your event.

I just read Hopeless and really enjoyed it. Sometimes it’s hit or miss with self-pubbed indie type books but yours was definitely a hit! It’s an inspiration to all of us out here who want to publish something ourselves and are unsure. And you prove that it can be done and done successfully. You don’t need a major publishing deal to make your dreams come true! Thanks for being an inspiration! I plan to self-pub my own novel shortly and reading yours recently helped me know I’m moving in the right direction. Thanks!

Awesome…Hopeless is a must read. Its the best. You are an amazing writter. I couldnt put the book down. Dont stop… you are on roll. Ive read all three books and I need more. You have an amazing tallent. Whats next?!?!

Whoopidy-whoop-whoop!! YES!!!!! I kind of knew it in my heart that this was coming;) I get to have a printed copy in addition to my ebook one. Yay! Love this news. Congrats, you awesome woman!

I got mine in Texas, but one van never have too many copies rigt?

Congrats Colleen! You must be ecstatic! Is the cover of Hopeless going to be the same cover that you have right now, or a different cover? By any chance are you going to be coming to Southern California for a book signing? My book bestie Ria got to see you, Tammara Webber, and Jamie McGuire in Texas and I’m really jealous! LOL She’s also interviewing on ABC with you!I had her get me a signed copy of all of your books and she’s shipping them to California for me plus one for a giveaway on our book blog! I just want you to know that you are my absolute FAVORITE author, and are on my auto book buying list :)

Congrats!! That is so awesome! Saw the note on Hugh Howey’s blog, but I had already noticed you up there at the top and was wondering how long it would take for someone to scoop you up. But to hear the print-only deal… is even better! Yay for you and Hugh for leading the way!!

Congratulations times a thousand, Colleen. Well done!

Awesome! I can’t wait to have this book on my shelf! Congratulations, Colleen! :D

I love to see that you are setting the pace for the new publishing world! That is great news not only for you , but for many self-published authors! Congratulations!

Any chance of an audiobook release?

Can’t wait to have Hopeless on my shelf with Slammed and POR!

Colleen, congrats on the print books. Also Just finished Slammed … it made me laugh/cry/anger/ect/ect …. very beautifully wriiten. it only took me like six hours, I guess I should listen to my wife on her recommendations from now on..

Awesome! I’ve got it on my Kindle, too, but I’ll buy a copy to keep forever. Love this, a sequel might be nice :)

Congrats Colleen! I swear everything you write turns into gold!!

I love the real books… :)

That is wonderful news Colleen! Congrats! I can’t wait to add to my bookshelf! :)

Congrats! That’s fantastic! Now everyone will have a chance to read it.

Congratulations, Colleen! A print-only deal is a great achievement, and a major expression of confidence in your ongoing success.

What took them so long? I am shocked that they didn’t grab it before it was published online. Congratulations! One of my fave books ever!!! I can’t wait to purchase it as a paperback too.
