Interesting Facts about the Peachville High Demons series By Sarra Cannon
* When I first started writing Beautiful Demons, the killer was someone completely different. When I got to the end, I gasped in surprise. I seriously had no idea who had killed Tori until the very end of the book.
* I didn’t have the series planned out at all. Every time I finished one book, I would start thinking about the next. It’s really cool how some details, like the blue butterfly and Harper’s demon tattoo, came to mean something really special in the end.
* Demons Forever took me eleven months to write, but that book will always have a special place in my heart because it was the book I was writing when I had my son, Andrew.
* The inspiration for this series actually came from a marathon session of watching the TV show, Veronica Mars. My original idea was to write a series about a young girl who solved murders and mysteries in her town using magic. If you’ve read the series, you know that’s not at all how the series really turned out!
* One of the major themes in this series is TRUST. Just when Harper thinks she knows who she can trust, she finds out she’s been betrayed.
* There are 6 parties/dances in the series and something terrible happens at every single one. I think Harper should just stay away from all parties in the future!
* A second series based on this world will start in Spring 2014 and will be told from both Harper and Lea’s points-of-view.

Interesting Facts about the Fairhope series By Sarra Cannon
* Fairhope is a fictional town in Georgia. In my mind, it’s kind of a cross between Savannah and St. Simons Island. Not too big, not too small.
* The first book, The Trouble With Goodbye, is very loosely based on something that happened to me when I was twenty-three. Only, instead of a college administration, I was dealing with the U.S. Military.
* Knox Warner is a woodworker and he’s very good with his hands.
* When I was writing the first draft of The Moment We Began, I cried through the last quarter of the book. I didn’t know for sure how it was going to turn out until I’d written it!
* The third full-length book in this series, The Fear of Letting Go, is about Jenna. Jenna has sixteen different tattoos, the first of which she got on her sixteenth birthday.
* Each book in the Fairhope series is about a different couple, but as you read through the series, you’ll get to check in on your favorite characters and couples and see what they’re up to now. Even though book 3 is from Jenna’s point-of-view, you’ll still get updates about Leigh Anne’s trial and Penny’s baby!
* In the Fairhope Christmas novella, A Season For Hope, I totally see Judd Kohler looking exactly like a younger Smith Jerrod from Sex and The City. Long, dark-blond hair. A gorgeous smile that lights up his whole face. I had a picture of him on my desktop the whole time I was writing the story!
* One of the most talked-about men from this series is Preston Wright, Penny’s gorgeous twin brother and the son of the richest man in Georgia. He’s a complex character. We know he cheated on his girlfriend in high school, which kind of makes him a jerk. But we also know that when Penny was hurt, he never left her side. If you keep reading, you’re going to find out a lot more about Preston very soon, including whether or not he finally gets his own happily-ever-after.

Sarra Cannon writes contemporary and paranormal fiction with both teen and college age characters. Her novels often stem from her own experiences growing up in the small town of Hawkinsville, Georgia, where she learned that being popular always comes at a price and relationships are rarely as simple as they seem.

The first book in the series, Beautiful Demons, will be adapted into a graphic novel by Sea Lion Books later this year, and a spin-off series will begin in 2014.
