Official press release, as announced in Publishers Weekly — more Inside Out books!
I’m thrilled to share the news with everyone I’ve already been hinting about…but it’s official now!
Gallery Books and Pocket Star, the digital first imprint of Simon and Schuster, have entered into a major deal with New York Timesbestselling author Lisa Renee Jones to continue her phenomenally successful INSIDE OUT series. In the new acquisition, announced by Gallery Books’ Publisher Jen Bergstrom, Gallery will publish 2 books and Pocket Star will publish 3 e-novellas, all in 2014.
The INSIDE OUT series began with the books If I Were You, Being Me, and Revealing Us, which most recently hit both the New York Timesand USA Today bestseller lists. In 2013, Jones supplemented her print oeuvre, and reader demand, with 5 series-related e-shorts. To date, translation rights have been sold in 12 countries. The INSIDE OUT series is being developed into a television series by award-winning producer Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland) who is inviting fans to join a specially-created newsletter for insider information on the series as it develops.They can join by sending an email to Rebecca@Team-Todd.com.
Said Jen Bergstrom, “We are so excited about this series and all of its potential. Lisa’s voice and concept are thoroughly unique and we look forward to seeing where each new book will take us.”
Senior Editor Micki Nuding will edit the books and the deal, for world rights, was handled by Louise Fury of The Bent Agency. TV Rights were handled by Shari Smiley at Resolution.

Inside Out book news — HIS Secrets — Chris’s POV
February 24th Chris’s POV will arrive. This takes place in Paris right before he and Sara head to San Francisco.
News on the rest of the books/stories hopefully by the end of the week. We are just working through release dates before official announcements. Lots more Mark coming!
In a world where my only escape has been my art, Sara has been the light in my darkness. And there is darkness, the kind of inky black that can bleed from my life to hers. She doesn’t see it. She doesn’t understand what I’ve shown her. And my biggest fear is that soon…she will.
It’s live at Amazon in the US and Barnes and should soon be live everywhere.
Also all 4 of Rebecca’s Lost Journals and MASTER UNDONE will be in print together in April. The Pre-orders are live at Amazon US and Barnes and will be live everywhere soon.

Update: Responding to the many questions about INSIDE OUT future books
Hi all –
I was trying to wait until the official announcement to tell more about INSIDE OUT but some people are getting upset because they don’t know what is happening next and even feeling frustrated. I appreciate that you are that invested in the characters!
I’ll have official news VERY soon.
Some of you have ask about the word ‘trilogy’ but you also all see that there is much more to come, and you’ve expressed the idea of not knowing what happens to Mark, Ava, Chris, Sara, and even Rebecca, is not a good one. And Ricco and Mary are in some pretty hot water, too! Ryan is also an issue and Chantal and Rey. I don’t plan to leave any of them ( or you) hanging. I’d planned more books from the day I outlined the series but to spin them off into another series. With the TV stuff and the connected characters staying so interwoven though that just made no sense the change the series name. So the stories continue as I’d always planned and with the same series name.
#4 is in Sara’s POV and #5 is in Mark’s POV. Another reason I originally called it a “trilogy” was I planned to make 4 and 5 in Mark’s POV. I wanted that shift to be clear. However as I wrote #3 I decided #4 has to be in Sara’s POV. There are just too many things to do with her and Chris we still need to visit. These characters are so alive they make decisions for me and I think many of you would be upset with me if you didn’t get to see the final pages of Chris and Sara from inside their relationship. There will be lots of Mark though in #4 as it was originally planned in his POV.
Ella is a completely new trilogy that will be a completely new storyline.
Hang in there with me and we’ll share more soon.
I can’t wait to tell all!
