And the official title of book 2 in the Remembrandt series is . . .

It's been almost 8 months since my first book, Remembrandt, came out and Remembrandt 2 is done! At 84,533 words, this book is quite a bit longer than Remembrandt. I also spent much more time editing, researching and writing this baby. I'm so happy with how it looks now, but I know it will be even better as I work with my editor to polish it more. 

In celebration of completing the book, I figured it was time to announce the official title. Here goes:

Author Robin King announces title of 2nd book in Remembrandt series
“Espionage isn’t just her job, it’s a work of art.”

SO what do you think of the title? Do you like the little teaser for the book cover in the background? And the tagline . . . I love the tagline!

And here's the summary:

Seventeen-year-old Alexandra Stewart finally has a life worth remembering - a Spanish tutor who gives perfecto a new name, a roommate that could double as her sister, and a special role in a secret spy organization that exists in the basement of Brown University.
But when her colleague, Daly, returns from a recent trip to Moscow accompanied by a man she never thought she'd see again, Alex is ripped away from her life in Providence and sent across the globe in search of a stolen piece of art.  In desperate need to find the Van Gogh painting, she will do anything to find it. Anything.
From Barcelona to Paris with only Daly at her side, the bonds of friendship are stretched as the duo uncover a truth neither one of them saw coming. Finding the painting could mean discovering a part of Alex she is ashamed could even exist, but without it, she could lose everything. The world around Alex threatens to corrupt the memories she holds most dear and the person she loves the most is at stake.
 If you haven't read Remembrandt, you will want to get your hands on a copy before the sequel comes out. Van Gogh Gone will hit the shelves this fall.

Remembrandt Cast of Characters

People often ask me if I had a certain person in mind when I started writing a character for Remembrandt. The truth of the matter is: I just made them up. I didn't have a celebrity or friend that I imagined looked exactly like my characters. In fact, some of the characters changed appearance while I was writing the book (green eyes changed to blue, blonde hair became brown).

Now that I am working on revising book 2 in the Remembrandt series, I've come to discover that what I picture certain characters in my book look like may not be how they are portrayed on the page to my readers. When I started attending book clubs, I decided that it would be fun to create a Pinterest board of possible people that might fit as a CAST if I made a Remembrandt movie.

You requested. I answered! Here are my top picks for characters in the book:

Jason Statham, Josh Zuckerman, Jonathan Goldsmith
For those curious, William and Daly are models and I couldn't find their names anywhere (please let me know if you find out who they are!). Alexandra is a sweet gal I know named Marli who modeled for the cover of Book 2 (to be revealed soon . . .). Elijah is actor Jason Statham. Millard is Josh Zuckerman (from the new 90210). Golkov is actor Jonothan Goldsmith.

Is this anything like you pictured these characters? Send me your suggestions!
