Margaret Stohl's ICONS Debuts May 7, 2013

By Kris Kahrs

      Well, the Inkies can say we knew her when... before Beautiful Creatures was a book and not a movie. Now, Margaret Stohl is debuting her solo effort, ICONS which goes on sale May 7, 2013.  

      ICONS is a Young Adult post-apocalyptic story of an alien decimated earth and four teens who are born with special powers immune to the aliens' control. Margaret Stohl should start offering workshops on how to create a bestselling YA novel-cum-hollywood movie vehicle. Four young teens pulling together to save their home seems to be the ticket.

      As of last September 2012, Alcon Entertainment bought the rights to ICONS. Alcon Entertainment recently wrapped Beautiful Creatures, the movie of Stohl's book, co-authored with Kami Garcia featuring another foursome of teenagers fighting powers beyond the beyond.

      Alcon CEO, Broderick Johnson said, "Once we learned of Margaret's new venture, we jumped at the chance to continue our partnership with her and this amazing series of books".  ICONS is the first book in a planned series by publisher, Little, Brown and they just released this killer book trailer last week on March 13th 2013. If you watch it, you'll just have to buy the book. It's that exciting.  We'll take a dozen!

    1. Hi Susan--

      I agree. It makes me want to start planning my book trailer now. I think most of us will have to do our own. Most publishers don't do this for their authors. Thanks for reading and sharing!

    1. Hi Donna--

      A quick question, did your publisher offer you a book trailer or did you not have one because of your book's genre?
