TAKEN2 title reveal!

Look at all these RTs about the Young Authors Give Back tour! Thank you, thank you!!!

YAGB tour RTs

I promised to reveal the title of TAKEN’s sequel after 50 RTs, and as you can see above, you guys met that challenge like pros. Rather than continuing to ramble, I’m just going to say thanks one last time–THANK YOU!–and get to the goods. It’s why you’re here, after all.

So without further ado,

the title of TAKEN2 is














!!!!!!!!!! FROZEN !!!!!!!!!!

Guys, I love this title so much!!

Unlike TAKEN, which had a lengthy and exhausting titling process, FROZEN is the first thing I wrote on the page when I started drafting this sequel, and it stuck.

This title says so much about book two, both literally (the landscape/season), and figuratively (poor Gray and his conflicted heart). Not to mention the additional ways I can’t speak to without spoiling things from book one. (And I really don’t want to do that for those of you who still have TAKEN on your TBR pile.)

I’m just so pleased this title made the final cut, and even more pleased that I can share this book with you in less than a year. I counted down the days ’til TAKEN for 24 months, but FROZEN will be yours on 4/15/14. That’s just eleven months from today! (There’s always a rare chance this date could change–this is publishing, after all–but I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.)

Until then, how about a sneak peek at the gorgeous interior pages for FROZEN?

You might remember that TAKEN’s “section” pages featured a tree from the cover.

Do with this info what you will…

  1. This looks lovely! I still haven’t read TAKEN (**runs and hides**) but you can be sure it’s on the pile ๐Ÿ˜‰ Congratulations on an awesome-looking book 2!

    1. Thank you!! But don’t run and hide! Seriously, no worries at all, and no pressure to rush and read. I understanding that most people have a TBR pile a mile high ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Love the title, and oh, that interior page! SO GORGEOUS.

    I received my copy of TAKEN a while back, but haven’t had a chance to read it because of exams. But I can’t wait to dive into it comes next weekend (yay for Memorial Day!). ๐Ÿ™‚

    My friend was absolutely raving about Taken, and me being the bookworm I am had to pick up a copy of my very own. I cannot put into words how much I loved Taken! I probably didn’t put the book down at all, not even in class (nasty habit of mine), but I just want to say that I really am crazy about this book and I can’t contain my excitement for Frozen! It reminded me why I love to read so much. It’s definitely on my TBR pile. Thank you for sharing this amazing book with me. Jeez the turned into a rant…

    Just finished reading TAKEN and just wanted to comment on how absolutely wonderful it was. Waiting rather impatiently for FROZEN and the third book after that. Congratulations!

    Thank you for writing taken! For me taken was like having a amazing meal after not eating for a year. Stopping myself from chocking down the words, was next to impossible. So impossible that I finished the book in Adam and a half. What I would give to have Frozen in front of me right now! Congrats on Frozen!
