Sea Lion Books to publish Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush as a graphic novel.


ATLANTA, GA – March 31, 2011 – Sea Lion Books announced today the acquisition of the comic book and graphic novel rights to Becca Fitzpatrick's New York Times bestselling Young Adult novel Hush, Hush. A romance laced with intrigue, it is the story of a young girl torn between desire and suspicion in her love for a fallen angel. A true psychological thriller, Hush, Hush was the first book in a trilogy, with the story continuing in Crescendo and concluding with the forthcoming Silence, which is scheduled for release in
October 2011. The series has a worldwide following, with sales of more than 1 million books in 35 countries.
“Becca Fitzpatrick is a huge bestselling author,” said Kuo-Yu Liang VP Sales & Marketing for DiamondBook Distributors. “I think this series is a great addition to Sea Lion Books line up of projects and should be a major hit for them”.


Hush, Hush is the story of Nora Grey, a studious sixteen-year-old girl from Coldwater, Maine. It has been a year since her father's murder and she is not interested in much other than her schoolwork. Then she meets Patch, a bad boy—and fallen angel. Though unwisely attracted to him, Nora finds herself caught in a battle between the fallen and the immortal. Choosing the wrong side could cost Nora her life. Becca Fitzpatrick is delighted to have her book brought to graphic novel form. "Hush, Hush was my first book, and it's so thrilling that it has been embraced by so many readers. I'm delighted to be working with Sea Lion to tell Patch and Nora's story through graphic novel format!" Sea Lion Books shares the delight in working alongside the bestselling author on the adaptation, and feels that Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series is a fantastic addition to its graphic novel line.
Hush, Hush #1 is scheduled to debut in winter 2011. The creative team on the project will be announced at a later date.

Your going to get alot of different answers with the personality type. Every guy is different. I prefer a nice/caring smart girl. As far as attractiveness goes yea it is important, but 1 can't be without the other. Looks for me are 7. i have no interests in a woman that looks good but has a total ****** personality.
