Heather Demetrios Annoucement

Did you fall in love with Heather Demetrios' novel Something Real? Did you immediately wish for a sequel or companion novel? Well.... you're getting your wish. A companion novel from the point of view of Lexie is in the works and in true Lexie fashion she's telling her story HER way.

Lexie's story will be told via various social networks, and via various media types. Here is the official press release with all the details you'll need to know in order to be following the story.

Brooklyn, New York (April 27, 2015)—Heather Demetrios announced today that she is writing a sequel to her critically acclaimed debut novel, Something Real.

The Lexie Project is a multi-media, multi-platform storytelling experience, a novelized memoir that reaches readers through social media, including Wattpad and Tumblr. Demetrios will be writing the story in serialized form with weekly installments, at no cost to the reader. Daily updates on Lexie’s social media accounts will give readers the chance to interact directly with Lexie, as well as provide readers with opportunities to influence the course of the story.

Said Demetrios, “YA readers are passionate fans and their deep investment in the stories they love is something I took into consideration when I set out to work on the sequel. Lexie’s story is about a reality TV star who’s now trying to make it in Hollywood. As such, I want to give my readers a fresh, modern way of entering into into her story—this is how Lexie would tell it. Fan interaction and crowd sourcing allows the YA fandom to be part of the creation of the story and I’m excited to see where it will take us.”

The first installment of The Lexie Project comes out on Wattpad on June 8, 2015. Lexie is already active on her social media accounts. Readers can find out more on www.heatherdemetrios.com/books/lexie_project
Heather also revealed the cover for The Lexie Project which I think fits perfectly.

Be sure to follow Heather's Wattpad, Lexie's Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest as well as the Youtube channel (soon to launch) so that you do not miss one single part of this story.

You can add it to your Goodreads to be read shelf now, and join in me in the wait until June 8th for the first instalment!
