Ellen Hopkins Announces New Book
Perfect will be released in September of 2011 and revolves around the lives of four main characters and their quest for and perception of beauty. This novel is a spin-off of Impulse. The cover of this newest work was displayed today during her live uStream chat, during which she discussed her advice for young writers, character development, and upcoming work. She recommended a website for young authors which gives advice and allows for online publication: www.inkpop.com. The site can also be found under the Resources page.
For adult fans of Hopkins, she is currently working on an adult novel called Triangles about three women facing mid-life crises. This book is also likely to come out in the fall of 2011.
While her work is very dark and the subject matter heavy, her prose is beautiful and commitment to writing openly and honestly about taboo subject matter is commendable. Her characters are believable and their journeys and struggles written with compassion.
