Can hardly wait to get my hands on this!!!!
Yay! :) I can't wait for you to have your hands on it.
I must say, I'd never even heard of you until Amazon recommendations told me about Significance for Kindle, and I also must say, I plan on working my way though all of your works, one by one.
I'd never heard of you either until I got a reco from Amazon - I'm hooked! Hurry and write more =). I only have 1 more book to read. Your books really sucked me in.
Wow ur books are the most amazing books i have ever read..and the funny thing is i just came across them thru amazon recommendations for kindle...my favorite series is collide...i have read all ur work and THEY ARE UNBELIEVABLY good...i can't stop thinking about collide, the characters consumed me ..Merrick, Sherry, Cain, Lillian, Lily, Jeff, Danny, Celeste..all of them i seriously can't wait for catalyst!!!
Thanks so much!! <3
Ugh I want to read this book SOO bad!! I read the first two all day yesterday and today!!! Now I'm a little sad because I didn't realize the third wasn't out :-( I hope you do get an early release because that Is WAY too long to wait!!
I'm addicted can't wait to read the third book! I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I finished the first two in one day and found out the third isn't available yet!!! I can't wait to get my hands on it and to read my way through the rest of your books! Keep up the awesome work!
I agree with everything above. I loved the book and you are a fabulous writer and I fell in love with each of your characters. Keep it up <3
I absolutly love love love your books.But can I make a suggestion? Please please please make anouncments when you put out a new book! I nearly passed out when I realised Catalyst has been out over a week and I missed it(almost done, btw, lovin' it! The Collide series is by far my favorite! *bounces*) Maybe you could put a little "Here's whats out" section on the side of you blog somewhere? Keep up the awesome writting!
Cant wait for this to come out! i just wanted to say THANK You for being such an amazing author! i love all of your books and significance is my favorite!I really hope defiance comes out early, i don't know if i can wait months!!
Oh my gosh! SO excited!!!
PLEASE EARLY RELEASE PLEASE
Seriously. I would do ANYYHING for a release before April. I know you are busy but this story is so beautiful and intriguing.
I am soo hooked on all of your books! I can't wait for the next installment for each series!! I read all of your books in under a week! Thanks soo much
PLEASE RESPOND IT WOULD MEAN A LOT. (PARDON THE LENGTH) Recently, I previewed Significance for my Kindle. I knew I absolutely HAD to have it. I went to buy it (great price for your books BTW). I started reading more and more and OMG I fell in love. Me being someone, who read Twilight after the big blow up fan craze was over, loved it for the beauty of their romance. As much as I hated Bella as a character, I read through all the books in three days. I loved the romance and developed a love for certain parts of the books. I hated Jacob for trying to steal Bella from Edward and I hated Bella for being such a ditz and seemingly not being able to fricken WALK without Edward. I didn't like how teenage girls were portrayed. Moving on to YOU as a writer. I love your writing. I've seen that mostly the only semi bad reviews for your book are due to minor gramatical errors, but honestly, the story itself captivates the reader and grammar doesnt matter much. I LOVED LOVED LOVED the romance parts of the book. Granted, Maggie still NEEDED Caleb in a way, it wasnt because she was weak and simple minded. She knew how to handle herself and was willing to get mad at him. I have already developed favorite parts in both of the books. I liked that she had character. For me, these book BLEW Twilight out of the water so completely that when I really want to re-read parts of a book, I will always come back to these. My absolute favorite part of Accordance is Chapter 11. For some reason the whole (SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE READING!) emotional part with her in the shower really stuck with me. It was romantic but she still was dealing with her new powers. What I like about the books is the diversity of the story. You have the romance that grabs any girl, but also enough action to feel like there is a plot, but there is also the matter of dealing with her family and oblivious friends. It DEFINETLY adds a little something to the story. You are now one of my favorite authors, up there with Pittacus Lore and Rick Riordan. Also, even though I am sure you are tired of reading this by now, I have a couple books I recommend to you, based upon your writing styles. They include the following: The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter, and Destined by Jessie Harrell. Sorry for the length. BTW, the day I spent reading both of these books, COMPLETELY worth it. :)
I really appreciate that BookNerd! Thank you so much. The shower scene in book two was difficult to write for sure. Thank you!
Thanks for the response! I love hearing from authors :)
I completely agree with BookNerd. I did the exact same thing with Twilight. I had the same complaints about it, but your books have real characters. You have Maggie where make up and care about what she wears. She is a little self concious and isn't someone that I can't relate too. I am so excited for Defiance! I have read both your books five times and am excited to reread them again. Every time I read them I get the thrill I got the first time.
I absolutely love your books. I wouldn't have ever read your books if it hadn't been for amazon. Your book is the best book I've ever read, and I'm a book-aholic so I read like constantly. You should be way more popular than Twilight. I can't wait for Defiance. Please have any early release.
Please tell me that you are releasing defiance soon! i almost started to cry when i found out that i had to wait a few months to read the next book. I absolutely adore the characters you created, you are a genius! i have read all the books you have ever wrote and i completely love them, but the significance series is definitely my all time favorite! i was so excited when you listed books you liked, we have the same taste! about half the books you listed i have already read but the i loved all the other ones.( sorry for all the loves and !) if you ever make appearances for signing books in santa clarita or any los angeles area i will be there for sure. thank you for being such a beautiful writer. i bet you are just as wonderful in person! you are utterly amazing and i hope you keep on writing. Please finish defiance soon! best of wishes and good luck! :)Mikayla T.
OMGosh shelly you are (i have said this like 18 times on my blog) amazing! Are you going to post any more sneak peeks? I love them and you are just "friggin'' amazing
I just discovered your books a few days ago. Let me just say my husband has been jealous of my Kindle! I'm totally in love with this series! I
You are an amazing author and the Significane series could'nt be more perfect. I absolutely adore this series! I agree with your belief that romance should be the main theme in a YA Paranormal Romance and am greatful that you decided to write your own books. Thankyou!
Just devoured the first two books and am in love with the characters! It's beyond hard to wait for Defiance but alas we wait (somewhat impatiently - lol) In the meantime I have bought some of your top 10 (loving me some Jericho wink wink) and will be referring friends to the awesomeness that is your books. Keep up the good work!!
Thank you! Really appreciate that!
I can't wait for Defiance. I am so excited. The sooner the better. I will check out Devoured while I wait. I am sure I will love it to.
When does the next collide book come out?
I cant wait for Defiance. Dont rush though, good books are just as good as the effort put into it. :] :] <3
Arr you planning on making a foruth book to thr significance series
Shelly you are THE BEST AUTHOR of ANY series of books that I have EVER read!!! You have written my favourite series EVER and are my favourite author EVER as well !:) You are awesome and you're writing is stunning, keep up the amazing work !!

currently reading it and so far so good can't wait for independence:D I LOVE YOUR BOOKS SO MUCH ;D
It seems that there are few like me out there that prefer the Collide series to the Significance series! I have reread both series' many times but Collide far more times. I just love the characters and depth so very much.I look forward to all your future work and would like to thank you for sharing your gift of writing. You have great talent and have blessed us by allowing us to enjoy your stories.Thanks,Kelli
Ooh! I *love* the cover! I want more of your books <3 Keep writing! The type of books you write are write up my street!I'm being serious, I'm 12, and I used to like all the trashy love novels.I read the Significance series and I'm in love with the romance-sci-fi type books! I even started writing my own! Keep writing :)
when is independence coming out?
Shelly... You are AWESOME! <3
Ooh, I can't wait for this, May 2012 isn't it? Well, it says that in my kindle!Booknerd, that was an awesome speech and I totally agree, Bella was weak and couldn't live without Edward but she didn't *need* him like Caleb and Maggie needed eachother! I still liked Twilight though, *giggle* Twihard.I swear when I read Devour, I went on a mental streak and bombarded my friends with hopeless facts about Eli. In maths I ended up writing Elijah Thames on my leg and up my arm XD I love all your characters and the way you portray them is totally, amazingly different compared to the other teenagers in YA Romance books! (Except Eli who is like 123 years old.... :D) Anyway, I am so, so, so excited about Consume coming out. I swear, I'll die if it doesn't come out by August, serious XDLove your books Shelly, keep writing :D

NOT FAIR!!!! hahaha i just went on amazon to get a sneak peak and the wasn't one, awww man!:)
I used to absolutely despise reading but my sister made me read the book and it made me open my eyes to a different kind of world you have no idea how much your books mean To me and they make me see the world a completely new way. Now you should have seen me when I figured out it would be a movie. I don't think I've ever been so happy. When my sister told me I thought she was joking cause we have always said that your book would make a perfect movie but when I checked your website I nearly had a heart attack. I literally had a dream last night that I saw the movie. No. Joke. I wish I didn't wake up because the movie was just starting and I was dying with anxiousness and then I woke up. I don't think I can wait until it comes out!!!! I will be a very happy girl the day it comes out and it takes a lot to please me never mind making me happy. Well anyways your books have truly made me a different person and no other books have ever done that for me!!! You have showed me I can follow my dreams even though I would love to become a musician and your an author but we both come from small spaces with big dreams and you don't know how exteremely happy I am for you to become the amazing author you are today and loving what you do you are truly an inspiration. Thank you so much for writing your books and I will read each and every book you write even if its an algebra book and I will be at the theater to watch the first showing of significance!!! Shelly Crane forever!
I was recommended to read the significance series about 3 days ago from good reads, all I want to say is “Thank You.” This series is simply divine; from the way that is captured my emotions and had them enhancing the story as I delved into the special place on books can take me. I love reading books from new authors and getting a glimpse at what their imaginations get to show us, and Shelly I’m hooked. You have a brilliant way of writing :D I’m having a surgery on December 18th and it couldn't be a more perfect release date as I now have something wonderful to look forward too! Now I’m off to start your other series, Best Wishes!
AHHH! I have to read the first 3 all over again in preparation for number 4!!! Let the reading binge begin!! WOOHOO!!!!! This will be the 3rd time I have read all of the books.
