Amanda Hocking: Trylle Trillogy News

Amanda Hocking announced the release dates of her Trylle Trillogy. The series will be released in the US, UK, Australia, India, South Africa, and Asia. Though the release dates are a bit different, the dates I will be mentioning are the dates of release in the U.S.

I listed them in order of the series. Switched will be here January 5th, 2012. Torn is March 1st, 2012 and Ascend is April 26th, 2012.

Now there are 2 copies of each book. The adult version and the young adult version and each have different covers (same cover- different colors; the covers above are the adult version). The stories in each version are the same, but at the end of each novel there will be a brand new, never read before short story. This is where things get changed up a bit to cater to your liking. The short story in the adult version is catered more towards adults (not X rated or anything like that...) and the young adult is more for well, young adults! I thought this was a really neat idea.

For those of you that don't know, Amanda Hocking self-published these books a year or so ago. She was then picked up by a publishing company and has decided to rerelease them in this format, so everyone can have access to them- not only people with e-readers. This series is also in the process of being written as a screenplay by the writer of the movie, District 9. Needless to say, Amanda has been a very busy woman.

So what do you think? Amanda Hocking's Trylle Trillogy were the first books I read when I got my Kindle for Christmas last year. I love them, I've just been holding out on reviewing them until these versions came out. I personally liked the other covers better (the ones after the blue swirlies with the name, they showed Wendy in a chair and such). But these aren't too bad. :)

Are you guys as excited about this as I am?
