The "Launch" of the Good Ship Godspeed!

Thanks to Jeremy for the awesome banner!
For a few months now, I've been seeing this title and cover popping up in random places. It definitely caught my attention - I mean, look at it! the cover alone is enough to make me want to do a happy dance - and today the wait is finally over! The book is available for purchase! Huzzah!

I am also totally thrilled to be part of Penguin Teen's launch project for Across the Universe! Take a few minutes to scroll through all the exciting information in this post: videos, links, teasers, oh my! I think you're probably going to be just as intrigued, so find a copy to read for yourself, and keep your eyes open for my review to come ...

First off, let's hear what author Beth Revis has to say about both the book, Across the Universe and the ship Godspeed:

And if you're not intrigued yet, check out the official trailer:

Totally awesome stuff, right??? That's not all! You can check out the official Across the Universe website too, and explore all kinds of fun stuff. You can even explore the Godspeed ship! I just spent some time playing around the site, and you should definitely go by. Not only is it simply beautiful ((the same "stardust" image from the cover is the background wallpaper of the site)), but there are all kinds of places to poke around in! There's a calendar of upcoming events - check to see if Beth Revis will be coming near you! - downloads, and then of course: the Godspeed! Whoa. Talk. About. Amazing. Of course, now I'm sitting here thinking "I wonder if we'll ever be able to put stuff like that in a space ship?". Go,check it out! And check back again, because there's going to be additions to the site as things get rolling.

But wait! There's more!! For 12 hours only, io9 will be hosting a 111-page excerpt from Across the Universe on their website. This is an exclusive excerpt, and you can only access it via io9 from 11:11am EST to 11:11pm EST.
