About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

What Would YOU Do for Black Ice?

Hi guys!

I have three advance reader copies of BLACK ICE that I want to share with my most devoted readers! But how can I choose just three of you? Talk about an impossible choice! So, I've decided to let YOU convince me you should get a copy by showing me what you would do to win one.

Show me what creative, crazy, fun, superfanish thing you would do for a signed advance copy of BLACK ICE. Here's how:
  • Post a picture or video on any social media site (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.) showing what you would do to get your hands on a copy of BLACK ICE.
  • Caption it "What I Would Do for Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick"
  • Tag me in the picture or post, if you can, and make sure it's public so I can see it.  
  • Keep it clean, safe, and be kind to others, please. 
  • Have fun with it!
Most important, you must complete the entry form below. This is the only way to be officially entered.  

This contest is open to EVERYONE, whether you live in Colombia, Canada, or Cameroon, and runs through 11:59 PM (Eastern Time) on September 25th. Books will be mailed the next day.

Hey guys,

There are some exciting promotional deals going on right now with HUSH, HUSH and BLACK ICE. Now through July 31, the HUSH, HUSH ebook is priced at $1.99! If you follow my blog, but haven't picked up my books yet, this is the perfect opportunity to get hooked...I mean started.

Also, now through July 20, the BLACK ICE ebook is priced at $2.99. I know it's summery and hot outside right now, and it's hard to image curling up by the fire with a thriller set in Wyoming's snowy Teton Range, but once October hits, you'll want to be doing just that. Preorder now - your future-self will thank you!

Both of these deals can be accessed HERE.

HUSH, HUSH Movie News

Hi guys,

I want to take a moment to thank each of you for your amazing support for the Hush, Hush movie. Your love and passion for this project are humbling! With that said, I have some movie news to share. Unfortunately it may not be the news you've been waiting to hear. I have decided that now is not the right time to move forward with the Hush, Hush movie and have not renewed the movie option with LD Entertainment. I know many of you will be disappointed by this. But I hope that you trust me to make the right decision for Nora and Patch. I'm not saying the movie will never happen, but it won’t be moving forward at this time.

Thanks again,
