Check out my interview over at the Ravenous Reader. Nancy’s giving away some horns and a pitchfork and I’m giving away a signed copy of Demon Princess! I want some horns, too! I have to go out and buy a bunch for giveaways, methinks.
It’s been an interesting week! I’m just plugging along in Nightshade and liking this book a lot (I think!!). The Big Bad has just been introduced in the flesh and we’ll just have to see how bad he is. I’m thinking he miigghhtt have a bit of a soft spot for my heroine. Yes, he just might.
I think I’m going to need to take at least a week off after I’m finished the first draft on this one. The intensity of the material I’m writing mixed with the general weariness caused by trying to be prolific is making me a bit punchy and I’ve been reacting to things a bit stronger than I should lately. This is an understatement but I’ll leave it at that. I will definitely be resting and refilling the well during the first week of October before I either start a new project or get right into the second draft of Nightshade.
Demon Princess is out one week from today! I think it’s officially released here in Canada… today!! I saw a bunch of copies out early at a local Chapters a few days ago. I’ve never seen so many of my books in one place before. They were featured on a teen fiction table — the friendly blue of my cover surrounded by a sea of black covers. It made me realize how many YA books these days are dark and dramatic and edgy. Demon Princess is dramatic! In parts! Anyway, I hope that anyone who is exhausted from dark YA fiction and needs a bit of a lighter break will check out my book. *smiles charmingly*
In TV news, I watched The Vampire Diaries with great trepidation and I’m happy to report that it rocked! At least, I think so. I’ve only seen the premiere and have the second episode taped to watch when I get a chance. Loved it.
I also taped Dancing with the Stars last night and will fast forward through that today.
Sequins and hot dancing boys like Maks, Alec and Dmitry! What could be better?? Who cares about the celebrities?
