STOP PRESS! A sequel to The Rosie Project to be released in 2014!

Update: Read my thoughts on The Rosie Effect here.

So today I’d planned to talk about all the great new books being released in April. I sat down at the computer, ready to type and then procrastinated by checking my email…lucky I did because there was a wonderful email from Text Publishing. Here’s what it said in summary:

The Rosie Effect
by Graeme Simsion (sequel to The Rosie Project) will be published on 24th September 2014 (Australian publishing date, although it appears eBooks will be available on 24th September in the US and 25th September in the UK).

There was also a picture of the snazzy new cover:

Here’s the blurb:

Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back. If you were swept away by Graeme Simsion’s international smash hit The Rosie Project, you will love The Rosie Effect.

The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge.

Rosie is pregnant.

Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.

As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia back together, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him most.

Get ready to fall in love all over again.

I can’t wait! I’m so pleased that Gene and Claudia are returning, as I loved their characters. I’m sure Don’s journey to fatherhood is going to be just as funny and sweet as The Rosie Project was. Find out all the details here.

Aussies and those in the US and UK, you can preorder the eBook here if you’re as crazily excited as I am: Amazon AU
| Kobo | iBooks | | Amazon UK (I didn’t find any preorders for paper books to date).

  1. I had the same reaction to that email from Text! I was wondering what new challenges Simsion was going to throw in Don’s path and how the characters we’d come to know and love could be woven into a sequel in New York, and the synopsis sounds fantastic. Yes, I am ready to fall in love all over again!!

    And to anyone who thinks I’ve just used too many exclamation marks in this comment, you obviously haven’t read The Rosie Project 😉

  2. Great news! I convinced my bookclub to read The Rosie Project and they loved it. I can’t wait to tell them there will be a second book.

  3. Is this for Australia, or for us Americans, too? I’d hate to have to wait. Of course, the original took nearly a decade to put together…I wonder how the quickened sequel will compare?

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
