I wanted to give you a quick update on how Another Faust is doing, and share 4 ways that you, the fans of Another Faust, can help it become a success, so that Daniel and I can continue to create retellings of wonderful works of classic literature through Another Series!
First, the update: Another Faust is in its THIRD printing in as many weeks!! AAHH!!! And also, it has been picked for several top new book lists by Borders, Philadelphia Enquirer, Hudson News (top 100), Association of Booksellers for Children, and various blogs. Funnily enough, in the airport channel we are already a bestseller (I’m not sure why… maybe through the karma generated by all the hours I spend in airports), and we are working our way up other lists too!
“An unusual urban fantasy…The writing is clever and stylish…an absorbing, imaginative read, with a tense climax.” Publishers Weekly
“The teens’ story is told in detailed, gothic language. Faustian references abound…By switching character viewpoints often, the authors keep the pace moving to an ending full of action, revelation and horror.” Kirkus
“Dark like so many of the current teen horror fantasy novels and stylish like Gossip Girl, the brother and sister writing team work hard to create characters who struggle with insecurities of the past, the successes of the present, and the pain of both…the context and dark tone will surely find a solid readership.” VOYA
“A reimagined gothic classic with heavy prose and dark underlying themes: the confliction between good and evil in the human soul and the pitfalls of greed and ambition.” Fantasy Literature.com
“I found the action and events of the story to be compelling, suspenseful even, wondering what Madame Vileroy would do next, when the teens who were in the dark would figure out what was going on, how the more desperate teens would turn on one another next.” Readspace
“With several well-timed twists and numerous allusions to Faustian bargains throughout history, this juicy story will appeal to teens who enjoy the power grabs and backstabbing of Cecily von Ziegesar’s “Gossip Girls” (Little, Brown), as well as to fans of dark contemporary fantasy.” School Library Journal

4) Finally, Daniel and I are doing a tour of schools! We are very excited about it, and we could use your help getting in touch with high schools. If you went to high school anywhere in New England, the Mid-Atlantic or the New York tri-state area, or if you know any English teachers or librarians, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I would love to have your help setting up talks with students!
