Autumn Update from Lauren

Wednesday, October 23 @ 3:52:03 PM

Happy Teardrop Eve!

As I write this, I am filled with tingly, nervous anticipation. What am I going to wear to the book launch? What excerpt will I read aloud at the signing? Will readers fall for Eureka’s love story the way I did? These are questions I’ll be up all night wondering. It’s like Christmas Eve meets the night before the first day of school. You know what I mean.

I hope where you are things are calmer. Maybe autumn leaves are turning lovely shades of gold and the air smells like freshly sharpened pencils and that new perfume you’ve started spritzing to announce the kind of person you’re going to be this year (mine is Versace Bright Crystal—fresh, surprising, unforgettable).

To prepare for Teardrop’s release, last month I spent a few days at the Random House US warehouse in a lovely little town in Maryland signing 7,248 (for real!) special first edition copies of Teardrop.

I loved jamming to classic rock with my new friends at the warehouse and binging on Maryland crab cakes, but the most exciting part of my trip was getting to see a hard copy of Teardrop. It’s a magical moment, the first time you hold your book (or, in my case, cradle and caress, and yeah, I think I even kissed and shed a joyful tear on the cover . . . it’s sooo pretty). Being able to physically touch Eureka’s story made everything I imagined feel real.

Speaking of reality . . . the Fallen film is happening! Over the past few weeks I have announced the actors who will bring Lucinda, Daniel, and Cam to life. In the next few weeks, I’ll announce Penn and a chorus of your favorite angels and demons. The filming will begin this winter and the movie will be headed your way within the year. As subscribers to this newsletter, you’ll get first access to news about the film straight from the source. I’m excited to share the latest with you again soon.

In other fun media news, my Instagram and Vine addiction is now full blown! Check out my first videos from my whirlwind warehouse visit, and be sure to follow my upcoming adventures on the road promoting Teardrop.
I hope you will love embarking on this new adventure with me!

What I’ve been reading: NW by Zadie Smith
What I’ve been watching: Ricky Gervais in Derek
What I’ve been listening to: “Young and Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey

P.S. The last time I wrote to you, I said I hoped the next time I wrote, I would have finished the first draft of Teardrop 2. Guess what? I did!
P.P.S. If you love Fallen, you may call yourself a Fallenatic. I was asked the other day by a group of Fallenatics this important question: What will Teardrop lovers call themselves? If you have a great idea, let me know!

Fallen Movie News: Cam Officially Cast

Thursday, October 10 @ 11:32:06 AM

We are super happy to announce that Harrison Gilbertson has been cast as Cam!

Harrison is a twenty year old, up and coming Australian actor and i think it’s safe to say that he will make an awesome bad boy for the film! We cannot wait to see him in action alongside Addison Timlin as Luce, and the lovely Jeremy as Daniel.
