And the novella will be…

I can’t even tell you how fun this has been to present you with your choices for a DIE FOR ME novella and then watch you vote and comment!

Epic Reads has counted your votes. And there was a clear winner. Since it received a whopping 66% of votes, I will be writing DIE FOR HER!!!

DIE FOR HER will be available as an eBook in April 2013…just weeks before IF I SHOULD DIE is released in May.

A recap of that story:

When Kate Mercier walks into the lives of Paris’s revenants, Vincent Delacroix isn’t the only one whose world turns upside down. Jules Marchenoir has spent the last century flirting his way through Paris, enjoying his life as an immortal bachelor. But when he meets Kate and realizes that he and his best friend are in love with the same girl, he is forced to choose between love and friendship.

But you know what? THE ART OF DYING came in second, with 10%.

Sixteen-year-old art prodigy Jules Marchenoir moves to Paris to join the biggest figures of the European art world in the wildest setting imaginable: turn-of-the-century Montmartre. But his career is cut short when he sacrifices his life to save fellow artist Fernand Leger in the first World War. After animating as a revenant he is forced to hide from the art world where his career was flourishing, avoid any love affair that threatens to expose him, and learn to fight murderous enemies out to destroy his kind.

I read all of your comments on the Epic Reads site, and one in particular caught my eye. Jessica Ann McQueen said that she would  like to see a mix of the two Jules stories.

Well…I think I can arrange that. 🙂 I have to think about it, but I’m sure I can find some way of bringing a little bit of Jules’s past into his present. Maybe a flashback or two 😉 Who knows?

I want to thank everyone who voted in the DIE FOR ME novella poll. Epic Reads has chosen a winner for the enchanted Lalique frog. See who won here!

And now…gotta get writing!

    Number 1. He looks perfect for Jules!

  6. by Celyn - On October 22, 2012

    I love Jules just as much as the next reader and am so very very excited that we’ll get to know more about him. I wish we could also get some more about Ambrose because I feel there are some interesting tales there too. 🙂

    YAY I’m soo exited!!! For my fav Jules it is Gaspard Ulliel for sure! Camille Lacourt looks to old and the other one didn’t strike me…

  8. by Kerri - On October 23, 2012

    Gaspard! Definitely # 2. He is too darn cute for words!

    You know, Amy. As much as I love Kate and Vincents relationship, in the back of my mind, a little voice whispers that Jules is an excellent choice for Kate. I really find Jules’ story intruiging, and am so glad we’re getting a novella about him.

  9. by Jona - On October 23, 2012

    Gaspard as Jules and Francois as Vincent would be the perfect dream cast for me <3<3<3

  10. by Lisa Stafko - On October 23, 2012

    Definitely #3. Sweet!!!!

  11. by Joanna W. - On October 23, 2012

    AWESOME… Can’t wait for Jules’s story!
    I’d pick #3 for Jules. He looks more artsy, our sexy painter! 😉

  12. by Michele (CanadianTwiMom/Reading Lark) - On October 23, 2012

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! I SOOOO cannot wait! I ADORE Jules!!! And the 3rd guy is closest to my vision of Jules! <3

  13. by Zoila umana - On October 23, 2012

    #3 is sooo Jules he is so cute innocent but at the same time sexy and dangerous so yeah umm… In the book If I Should Die if Vincent does not make it i think Jules and Kate should you know dat a bit just to see what happens but i dont no i feel Kate and Vincent are so cute together but i still wanna no what would happen if Jules and Kate ever got together

  14. by jade - On October 23, 2012

    can’t wait for a novella in Jules POV!!!! My jules would be a mix of #2 & #3 .

  15. by Geraldine Frost - On October 23, 2012

    So thrilled that it will be Jules’ story ‘Die for Her’. What a great little sweetener to the final instalment. I feel like the kid who wants all the lollies (candy). I pick Jules # 2. Could the universe be playing with us given that his first name is Gaspard?!

  16. by Stephanie R - On October 23, 2012

    a mix between #2 and #3

  17. by Angie - On October 25, 2012

    Gaspard Ulliel!

  18. by Angie - On October 25, 2012

    Gaspard Ulliel

  19. by Pernille - On October 25, 2012

    I think Gaspard Ulliel is perfect for being Jules! And none of them should be Vincent!

    But Amy, I’m so glad your going to write a book about Jules. Just love that you are making this story bigger!

    Thank you !!

  20. by Ashley - On October 27, 2012

    OHH I think either the second or third picture would be Jules … it is really a tough decision, because I could easily see him as either depending on the scene.

  21. by Dalitza - On November 5, 2012

    I choose #3!!!

  22. by Karina - On January 6, 2013

    Gaspard Ulliel would be the perfect Jules! I love Jules so much & after reading his point of view, I could understand his pain. He’s my favorite!

  23. by Or Noir - On November 13, 2013

    What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not actually much
    more well-favored than you might be right now.
    You’re so intelligent. You already know thus considerably in relation
    to this matter, made me personally believe it
    from so many varied angles. Its like men and women are not fascinated unless
    it is something to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding.
    All the time deal with it up!
