Becca Fitzpatrick revealed some pretty juicy information in her live video chat tonight. It was amazing to be able to see her and have her answer all of our need-to-know questions. We thank her infinitely for that. It made us all fall in love with her and her books even more! So, in case you missed the chat here is a basic run down of everything that she talked about, so you don’t miss out on all the amazing deets!
Haven’t you gotten tired of referring to Book 4 of the Hush Hush series as “Book 4”? Well, I know I have. So, here it is my fellow readers. The title of the last installment in the Hush Hush Saga! Are you ready?
The title of the fourth and final book in the Hush Hush Saga is….FINALE! It is a perfect fit for the final book in the series. But keep in mind, my friends, this obviously means that it is seriously the FINAL book. We were all hoping that maybe she would make a fifth book or a sixth or even a seventh, but unfortunately Finale will be the last book, for sure, as you can tell in the title. Fans of Hush Hush are raving about the title; they think it captures the final book perfectly. And although she did not inform us in the chat, she just tweeted when the book cover will be released, saying “Chat update: my publicist clarified that FINALE’s cover will be released in May. Four months!” So close and yet so far!
Becca also answered many questions from her raging fans. One that has been on many of readers minds: Did Becca sell the movie rights to Hush Hush? The answer, is sadly no. She says that she hasn’t sold them yet, but says that maybe in the future she will, but at the moment it is a no.
One reader asked why she chose fallen angels as the paranormal focus. She says that she’s always known Patch was going to be a bad-boy, but she didn’t know he was going to be a fallen angel. In fact she didn’t mean to even write about fallen angels. She just knew that she didn’t want Patch to be a typical bad-boy that does the crazy things, thus the fallen angels. When she developed that she wanted there to be a very literal reason for him falling. And as we all know, he fell for love.
Patch was inspired by a boy from Becca’s high school. She tells us that she remembers walking by him and not being able to hear what he thinks,
which is just like Patch. He is always so mysterious and unreadable, we never know what’s going on in that pretty little head of his. And when asked where she gets her hilarious, snarky one-liners that Patch says, she tells us that she gets them from her husband.
Now, one question that has been gnawing at my brain, and I know from the chat that it is the same with many others, is whether there is going to be anything from Patch’s point of view, or do we learn any more about Patch’s past. Unfortunately, the answer is no. She tells us that Patch is going to remain a mystery and is still, in fact, a mystery to herself.
Although she does not have an official date for when Finale will be released, she says that it will be released some time in October of 2012. So keep a look out for that! And the final question, that we have all been waiting for. What is Becca going to be working on after the Hush Hush Saga? Fortunately she gave us an idea that she has had. Here is the synopsis she gave us:
It is strictly a Young Adult Thriller with no paranormal or supernatural powers in it. It is about a girl who goes on a trip with her friends to the Teton Mountains in Wyoming and they all end up getting trapped there due to a snow storm. And of course there is going to be romance, seeing as how she is on this trip with her ex-boyfriend, who she is still madly in love with. The twist in the story is that there is a killer in the mountains and together they have to fight for their lives.
Seems like a suspenseful and very interesting read! Can’t wait until that is out and published!
Remember to keep a look out for FINALE, in stores October 2012!
