KEEPER 7 TITLE REVEAL

I'm still waiting for a few final things to get done on my new website, so in the meantime I'm still posting important updates over here. And in case you missed this on my social media, here it is--the title of KEEPER #7! (I think I saw a *few* of you guess it):


(in case that graphic doesn't load--the title is FLASHBACK)

I know some of you might be surprised, since this isn’t a word I’ve used much in the series. But trust me, it fits the story perfectly.

And the book is scheduled to release 11.6.18 in the US!!!!!
(no, it can't come out sooner--I'm still writing it!)
What the title DOES mean: Memory plays a BIG role in book 7 (which you can probably guess from certain things that happened in NIGHTFALL--please don't spoil)

What the title does NOT mean: The entire book is one long flashback. Mind you, it'd be fun to mess with you guys that way, but even I'm not *that* evil. 🤣
And for those of you in France, I know you're wondering what the French title will be. Alas, at the moment, I don't know. The French titles are chosen by my publisher--not me. Same goes for the French release day. I promise I'll share as soon as I know.

(And now I know you're all thinking: WHEN WILL YOU SHOW US THE COVER. All I can say is, "as soon as its done." Right now, the art is still in progress. But it's going to be AMAZING--and no, I can't tell you anything about it)

    6. Okay so I think Fitz is what her head wants and her heart wants Keefe. Its like what happened in Nightfall. Therefore....


      TEAM FOSTER-KEEFE FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Yessss that could be I kinda agree but this series goes in soo many directions, and have you noticed that Sophie’s abilities *mostly kind of maybe anyone who has read the series will know what I mean* (mostly so it’s not spoiler) tend to be a bit different to others????

  7. when I first read the words "flashback" I lost my train of thought and yelled "NNOOOOOOO" thank you for not making this into one long evil flashback or the world would end.

Just a quick question though, I know you are busy but I just wanted to know when the Keefe POV will be posted on the site. Thanks and awesome book!!!!!!

  14. When I first saw the title I screamed and jumped around my house so my parents are looking at me weirdly.

    BTW Shannon Messenger, I don't think any of us would mind you making the publishing date a bit earlier. *Bambi eyes*

    ReplyDelete
  15. OMG shannon i <3 u and i am just sooooo ecstatic about the title!!!!! me and my friends are freaking and he demanded a date for it coming out as soon as possible after i told them the title!!! also its funny that u posted this at exactly midnight

    ReplyDelete
  16. YESSSSSSSSS NEW BOOK!!!! But then I realise that the wait for Lodestar and Nightfall will be nothing on this and I try not to cry. Okay, so Shannon MUST and I cannot emphasise how much that we HAVE TO KNOW THIS...
    1. The allergy
    2. Silvery and Greyfell (and associated third) (anyone who has read Nightfall will know what I mean)
    3. Matches
    4. The end of Nightfall (trying to be spoiler free)
    5. The other members of the collective and forkle’s identities
    6. Manifesting
    7. Biological parents

    I hope you can understands this as it is very vague bc I am trying not to be spoilery. Anyone who hasn’t finished the series, you will get it soon.

    I cannot express how much we as a fandom community have to know these things.

    Shannon Messenger, if you don’t tell us, you will be responsible for all of our deaths by explosion.

    Thankyou

  18. Hi Shannon Messenger,
    I am such a big fan of your books. I am obsessed with the Keeper of the Lost Cities. I talk about them all the time and have read them so many times. I love to listen to the audiobooks for one and two. I saw that the audiobooks are coming out soon for the rest of the series. And I was wondering if you knew when the audio recordings were coming out for books 3-6?

  19. Im super excited for Flashback. And im just really curious as to whether or not a winnowing gala will be involved soon because, i mean it would be tourture if one doesnt happen for one of the characters, since it was already mentioned so....

  20. I thought it might be called "Moonlark", but "Flashback" is a wonderfully powerful and mysterious title, and I cannot wait for the seventh and final book in this amazing series! Never have I been so addicted to books before!

  22. So, I have a cute little story that I thought I'd share with you. I think you'll enjoy it.
    Yesterday, my father picked me up from school early because my shoulder was really hurting me and my principal said it was probably dislocated, so he was bringing me to the doctor. When we were in the car, I started crying again because I was scared it was going to kill when the doctor popped it back in. My father looked at me and he said "WWKD." I looked at him in confusion and repeated to myself, "WWKD? Huh?" He smiled and said "What Would Keefe Do?" I burst out laughing and said "He would... I don't know. What would he do?" So my dad said "He would be tough and he wouldn't cry. He would say 'it's only going to hurt for a second' and he would be strong. So be like Keefe!"

    It was funny.
