Hallowed Giveaway and News

Hi y'all. The YA tournament was so much fun! Whew!

I am up to my eyeballs in writing Book 3 right now, deep deep deep in my writerly cave, so I am taking a wee hiatus from blogging, but I want to announce a couple things.

First, I am hosting a Hallowed Christmas giveaway on Goodreads.
See here to enter (I don't think it officially opens for a few days, so check back):

I also wanted to announce a few tour stops. First, I will be in Idaho in January. I'm still nailing down the details, but I will be doing school visits in the Jackson Hole and Idaho Falls areas mid-January (definitely a reading at the Idaho Falls Barnes and Noble on Saturday, January 21. I will announce the time as soon as I know). I am also considering traveling over to Boise and down to Salt Lake City around this time, so stay tuned.

In February, HarperTeen is sending me to Texas on the Winter Dark Days of Supernatural Tour, with the lovely Courtney Allison Moulton, author of Angelfire and my hilarious horse-loving friend and fellow angel writer, and debuts Brodi Ashton (Everneath) and Jodie Meadows (Incarnate). I am so thrilled to be spending time with these ladies. Dark Days is awesome!

Here are the dates and times:

Thursday, February 16th – DALLAS – B&N Southlake – 5pm

Friday, February 17th – AUSTIN – B&N Austin – 7pm

Saturday, February 18th – HOUSTON – Blue Willow Book Shop – 4pm

In March I plan to do a few stops in my local area of Southern California, hopefully a reading at Pepperdine in Malibu and a few school visits and signings in Ventura County and Los Angeles County.

In April (11-15) you can catch me in Chicago if you attend the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention, for Teen Day, where I am on a panel, doing some speed reading, and signing and hanging out with a huge bunch of wonderful fellow YA authors. Seriously. So many amazing writers are going to be there. Like I will totally have to resist fangrrling all over the place.

That's all the stops I have planned at the moment. But there will be more. Oh, there will be more.

In the meantime, I'm going to go back to my cave and continue to scribble furiously.

Will keep my eye open on that giveaway. Chances on me getting are slim since I never really win anything :( either way. Really looking forward to this book. Greetings from Ontario california. It was great having you here earlier this year. :)

I hope your schedule works out so that you can visit Boise. My 11 yr old daughter is flying through Unearthly. We discovered that you are from Idaho Falls when we looked online for information about the sequel. My wife's family is from Idaho Falls. It adds an extra layer of excitement for my daughter to have a "local" connection to the author, and I know she would love the opportunity to attend a signing. Keep up the good work.

It's not open to Portugal. Why?

When you come to Idaho, you should come north to Moscow! Please? Moscow is so much better then Boise. Please, oh please, oh please? :]

It´s so nice reading about the fun contests you´re still making. I was so excited about my winning an ARC of Hallowed at the Halloween contest because I so loved Unearthly. Unfortunately my book still has not arrived yet. I know the shipping to Austria takes some time but it´s already been weeks since I won the book. I really have given up all hope to receive it until it´s released officially in January :-(. Every day I´m checking my mail it´s just not inside, that´s so frustrating. Just in case I leave my address here, maybe there´s an angel :-) who makes sure I still get it: Sylvia Lindenbauer, Breitenaich 85, 4075 Breitenaich, Austria
All the best for the 3rd book which I´m sure is going to be as stunning as the first one!
