AWAKENED is started!

Thought y'all would like to know I've officially started HoN book 8, AWAKENED. And just in case some of you are still wondering if I'm really magic please refer to the above photo of me. I think it should be my new author picture, don't you?! (photo was taken by my talented artist friend, Roger Disney)

Book 8 already? I'm only on book 4! Haha - but I'm glad I have a lot to read before the story ends. I really enjoy reading your books.

Awakened?! even though Burned isn't even out yet, that's awesome, can't wait to read it once it's done... after I've read Burned... Does it come out the same date in Australia as it does the Uk and US?

Kate Grover said...

I'd be perfect for a new author picture

PC Cast said...

The release dates for the UK/US/Australia are supposed to be the same, but I don't have the exact release date for AWAKENED yet.

Awesome!!! I can't wait until Burned arives at my doorstep in just a few weeks!! I have already pre-ordered!!! Whoo-hoo!!

On another note, I have just read Elphame's Choice! Awesome! Looking forward to reading Brighid's Quest. You are such a talented writer! Thank you!

Cinnamon said...

How exciting! And that is a nice picture. :)

Vanessa said...

Awesome! I love your books! How many HoN books are there going to be?

Dimtris said...

Wow! Congrats, PC. And yeah. This picture is really awesome. It would make a perfect author picture. :D

Anonymous said...

are you two having any tours dates for Burned? i keep checking back and havent seen anything posted yet :(

Jana Oliver said...

Of course you're magic. Who would think otherwise?

Sarah said...

So excited for Burned and the fact that the house of night continues! I just finished Brighid'd quest and totally loved it! Amazing creativity!

:) said...

Tell us something new about the movie House of Night! Please!

Kisses from Brazil! :)

Natty said...

I can't wait , So happy that you have started Awakened. I hope that you continue writing the Hon series I just love them!!!.

Minokitas$' said...

Hi! I'm anxious to read the books. Can you believe that here in Portugal we just have until the third book (Chosen)?? But I'll wait (Untamed comes out in May, yupi!!).
Is Awakened going to be the last book??

xoxo

hollyeloise said...

I am a new fan to the House of Night series and I've got to say... they are totally awesome!

I'm going to be looking forward to the eigth book so bad. I'm already watching the count down timer for Burned on the HoN Webbie. Good luck writing this one and I hope it turns out just as fab :)

i read all of the HON books and also goddess of spring books. I like how you put details into your works and i have reccommened them to my friends. I have also see a website called mobamingle.com and in their mobastory section there are alot of talented writers. What kind of advice do you have for young writers out there?

VampirePrincess said...

Jeesh i love that your always writing. Lol I cant wait for burned and im excited to know the next title, because i want to know who's getting awakened!
By the way that would be a great author picture!

Erin said...

Wow you are one busy writer. Great picture btw. Are there going to be any new people in Awakened?

Umm I am working on something for you Mrs. Cast and I was wondering where to send it when it is finnished? I remember asking you if it was a good idea to sell Bookmarks that were inspired by HoN and donate the money from them to Street Cats. I am trying to make a rough idea of some. I am not the best drawer in the world and I am not trying to be, I just think it is a great idea. After I finnish my drafts and send the to you maybe you could have one of your amazing artist make a better version of it. It is just an idea for now.

I can't wait to read Burned. I am reading the series all over again to see if I missed something.

Thank you for reading my message. *bows*

Erin

Anonymous said...

So excited! I have a question, is Brighids Quest the last in the series, or will there be more books coming out? I love the series and would love to know! Thanks so much, and I <3 HoN

PC Cast said...

There are going to be at least 12 HoN books, and I don't have any movie updates (when I get them I post them right away).

Jana - heehees! Here's sending you some of my magic for your copy edits!

Zachary - I LOVE YOU TOO! I'll let you know when I'm flying back to Tulsa. If the time's not too crazy you can pick me up at the airport! Miss you! Now go back to your homework. Seniors have to keep their grades up!!!!

Savanna - I have an entire blog post in my archives dedicated to advice for young authors.

I'll post tour dates for BURNED soon!

Erin - you can always send things to me via my publicist, Katy Hershberger at St. Martin's Press, 175 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10010. Sorry, haven't had time to get the Street Cats bookmark thing going...

I heart y'all!
XXXOOO

Erin said...

Mrs. Cast, Thank you for the address I will write it down shortly. I understand you have been busy so no worries. I was thinking that the bookmarks should/could have cats on them. Like I said I am not the best drawer in the world. If I could draw what I think up I would be happy.

I am sure your artists can do a much better job than me, but it is alwasy nice to see an idea even if it isn't a very good drawing of it.

Thank you for the fast reply, and for reading my messages. *bows*

Erin

Staciebird said...

Anyone who writes as well as you PC must have something magic about them! Thanks for the updates! Appreciate it sooo much! Awakened then hey... hmmmm... i think i remember you mentioning in another post that you thought it was going to be awakened but hadn't decided, great title though, can't wait to read burned and then speculate what i think awakened is going to be about! hehe =D you must have inspiration on tap to keep writing continuously for at least 12 books! well done to you and Kristin. =) xx

Charites Pandora said...

just keep writing down those stories... i love ur book, just great...

Jenny1494 said...

PC..you're killing me here! I really don't know what to say. I have like a brain fart now. But OMG! AWAKENED! PC I wanna cry :( I need these books now or I'm gonna die! My sister is going to buy me BURNED for my Christmas present since she didn't get me anything. I was on the phone with her describing her what I read in chapter one of BURNED and like 5 times she said OMG JENNIFER BREATHE! and i was like I'm sorry its just..ughh i need BURNED!! Do you think maybe you could come to the Palm Desert Mall here in Southern California! i know you have a ton like a ton of fans here in the Coachella Valley.

With MUCH Love..
Jenny :)

Jenny1494 said...

Oh and the picture is great! PC. you said AT LEAST 12 books. so there might be a chance that there could be more?

Diana said...

wow! my best friend and I are so hooked on your books we ran around school looking for people that owned the rest a few a few months ago, because we would not wait to go to the store and get them. we just loved them we read all in a little less than a week! now everyone calls us nerds cuse they saw use reading them at lunch. we just laugh and say yeah we're the nerd herd. he-he cant wait till Burned and Awakened. we have count down sheets in our binders lol we're so nerdy. your awesome book even gave us a new slang vocabulary when we're talking in class and everyone will look at us weird because they cant understand us. we really heart you and the HoN series.
Can't wait till the next movie up date

a crazy house of night fan and her bff

Kennedy said...

Thank you sooo much P.C. for the AH-MAZING House of Night series! I am like, I don't know, in LOVE with your books. I re-read (is there supposed to be a hyphen...?) them before Burned comes out. I re-read them in 2 days because once I start, I am HOOKED!!! I was Zoey for halloween and carried around Betrayed so people might at least get my costume a bit more....Because I am only almost 13, my mom likes to read them before me because they are, well....you know. Haha. I got 2 of my friends hooked too. One of them just got Betrayed earlier today, so I can't wait to be able to have someone to discuss the series with. I read the first chapter of Burned and WOW! So much happens! I got a whole new perspective of Kalona! He really isn't all that bad and I actually feel sort of sorry for him and it made me hate Neferet even more. Good luck on the flood of questions and your writing of Awakened. By the way, you don't need to reply, I know how busy you are, I WOULD be quite happy if you did happen to though. Thanks again.

arod18 said...

Naomi said...

P.C.- i love your books and am really excited to hear there will be more. and i've heard about a possible movie? that would be amazing! i hope it all works out :) keep writing your doing an awesome job! :)

Ingvild Faye- Schjøll said...

After strong recommendations from my sister i began reading the HoN- series some weeks ago. To be honest, I think the topic regarding vampires has almost turned into hysteria, but I am so pleasantly surprised by your books. They are impossible to put away, and I have to admit i even shed some tears after reading Tempted.

Right now I can't wait until Burned is released. Hearing that Awakened is on its way is even better. I stumbled over this blog, and I just had to say what an amazing writer you are.

The picture is really nice btw :)

Erin said...

Mrs. Cast, the book Divine Beginnings, from your Divine Series, is it in paper back or is it just digital? And when does Goddess of Camelot come out?

Sorry for the odd questions. *bows* Thanks for making such great books.

Erin

PC Cast said...

Hi Erin - Divine Beginnings is only available digitally through the eharliquin website, but it is free. Goddess of Legend will be released in December. XO

Erin said...

Mrs. Cast, Thank you very much. I was hopeing it was in paper back though. Thank you again. *bows*

Erin

Erin said...

Mrs. Cast, sorry for two messages in a row. I just checked eHarlequin and Divine Beginnings isn't there at all. Do you have a copy of it? I love your books, so I would love to read Divine Beginnings since I have the other three Divine books. Thank you for reading my message. *bows again*

Ekta said...

Heyy ! I was just wondering, will all of the HoN books have posters on the inside of the jackets? Can't wait for Burned ! Congrats on such a successful series :D

PC Cast said...

Ekta - Yep, I think there will be a cool poster on the inside of BURNED! I haven't seen the actual book itself, but it is on its way to me!

Shawna said...

FANTASTIC!!! I can't wait for my pre-ordered Burned book to get here and now I already get to look forward to Awakened. Thanks for writing this series and being so ontop of getting the next book out to the readers. This is definately my favorite series I have read. Thanks again and looking forward to even more.

DaraStarrSpaceCadet said...

Looks like Roger did some very nice "light painting" in that photo. It must have been a very long exposure for him (or whomever the light painter was) to run around you that much. And congrats and staying so still while that was being done. It's a very, very nice affect.

amanda said...

Just got my copy of BURNED!!!! And I'm loving it but I'm not surprised about that lol I can't wait till AWAKENED comes out Iwish the other ones were already out but I know I have to be patient and it's hard ;) But PC and Kristin you guys ROCK!!! With Lots Of Love From Down Here In Georgia!!!

Heather said...

I just finished Burned and loved it! I can't wait for Awakened! I love all your books and as soon as I start one it is hard to put it down. I am looking forward to reading more of your wonderful books!! Thank you!!!

Jazmine said...

I got my preordered copy of Burned straight to my Kindle, and though I tried to drag out reading it, I'm already done one day later. I just could not help myself. I'm going to have to dive into work to distract myself until Awakened, keep up the fantastic work and hopefully I get to come to a HON event near me.

Shmlay said...

I wanted to let you know that I love all of your books and look forward to Awakened. I actually bought and finished your book Burned today. I like them so much that I dont start them unless I know I have a few hours to finish them or get into them because when I enjoy a book I fly through them. Thanks for this and let us know as soon as you know when awakened will be ready..

Thank you.

monicaswiss said...

Omg P.C You are amazing! your books are so good :) when i found out back in january that burned was coming out April 27th i wanted to cry and when i told my friend about it she had the same reaction. I love how the books are written and i am in love with Stark <3 I hated Eric from the beginning and i disliked Heath. He is always in the way :P Well anyway i love your books and i hope "Awakened" comes out soon! i dont know if i can wait :P I just started Burned. When you know the date that "Awakened" comes out, please write it on your blog. It would mean the world to me :P

lenhart said...

Oh god, i just finished Burned. AMAZING. I have NO idea how I am going to wait untill january 4 2011 (thats what i read on websites for when itll be out)...thats way to long... i waited like 6months for burned :( i read way to much lol. guess ill read the series 1-3 more times :P Good job PC. Cast family, your HoN books are EXACTLY what ive been searching for for years!!!

shesbeyond said...

omg i just finished burned and let me tell you that book was magnificent!! Im so pleased to hear burned wasnt the end.. i cant wait for awakened to come out!.. just one question.. who was the blonde chick on the front?? please answer!!
-TTYL :)

Krissy said...

Hi PC:

I read Burned and I really enjoyed Stevie Rae and Rephaim's story and I was wondering if we will see her Raven Mocker again in Awakened. I hope so, he is really growing on me.

Winksz said...

To P.C. and Kristin Cast. The both of you are utterly brilliant. I find your writing insightfully profound, and I hope you continue. I am an avid reader, and I will tell you it has been sometime since a book has entered my dreams. I finish Burned, and I await for Awakened. Fantastic imagination.

Thank you

Brittany said...

JUST FINISHED BURNED !
i neeed the release date for awakened !
i work at one of indigo's stores so i got the novel right away and i can't wait for the next installment . I'm absoluely enthralled with the series and i have gotten so many of my friends and customers started on the series and every single one has come back for more. Such an amazing series..
Can you estimate a date when you think awakened will be released ? I am despret to read on!

Brittany

lenhart said...

@ shesbeyond i believe the blond chick on the front was stevie rae. the other i believe is zoey.

Niya said...

I Love your books! theyre amazing! Im excited for awakened. im almost dont with burned and i got it yesterday! <3

MMP19 said...

I am so excited about the ninth book just finish burned and i must say it is awesome.I love the picture.

Sydnei said...

I'm currently reading burned and I LOVE it.I hope that in burned Stevie Rae and Rephaim fall in love and stay together.I think it would put a really cool twist since she's consider on the light and he's on the darkness.I can't wait for awakened.I'm already starting a count down.

luvsgoodbooks said...

OMG!! I loved Burned and cant wait until Awakened comes out. I hope they all come out soon. I can't wait until the movie either. I read all 7 books in 2 weeks and it only took that long because my husband told me i was cheating on him with my books. Or I would have had them done in less then a week.

Lil13itch said...

Now I don't know if you actually check these comments but I just wanted to say I am a fan of the series. Read the first book last month and spent the rest of that week finishing the others. And I got Burned this morning and just finished it. Can't wait for Awakened to come out. Once I start something I like it's kind of hard for me to put it down. About how long am I going to have to wait for this new one to come out? Not asking for a specific date. More of a generalization of how many months. Thanks for your time ma'am and for your fantastic books.

amanda said...

Just got done with BURNED!!!! and oh my it was better than I could have imagined ;) I don't know but Ikinda want Stevie Rae and Rephaim to stay together I do think it's possibly I just can't wait to find out. Oh and I so don't like Dallas anymore. Well don't won't to give spoilers so I'm gonna shut up now and wait on AWAKENED!!! Lots and LOTS of love to PC & Kristin

quindra_bohannan said...

hi i was wondering is the new book AWAKENED going to be out soon and i do love rephaim and stevie rea she deserves to be happy seeing as she keeps dieing i love your series not to sound stalker or anything lol but i would love to meet you in person....
love texas
PS..cant wait!!
how long do i have to wait is the question

LIZMG said...

Dear PC Cast,
I love your books and i cant wait for awakened. i heard it comes out Jan 4th. i was wondering if everything gets done early, will it come out earlier, or will you wait to publish it untill Jan 4th?
Thanks!

Alishaa said...

dear ms.cast,

i have to start of by telling you your, the most amazing author in the whole wide world ! you and kristin are outstanding.

but, i wanted to ask you if there really are going to be a maximum of 12 house of night novels. One of my friends told me there were going to be more, So i was wondering if you could confirm either piece of information for me.

alisha (:

ameyareaves said...

OMG!. i absolutely LOVEEE your books..they are soo amazing at first i thought it would only be nine of HON books,,but now that i see its gonna be 12 im super excited!!!(: ive finished BURNED and i cannot wait till the next book comes out! :D

Meghan Escott said...

AWAKENED is gonna b so cool. I've just finished BURNED and it is awsome. When is AWAKENED gonna b out???? I can't wait!!!

MDAllsup said...

I loved the Twilight series but I have to say that HoN has surpassed it by miles! I read the first 6, just got Burned (almost finished it, too), and can't wait for the release of Awakened. I would love to see this series in movie form but sure it would never be as good as the books. You have taken vampyres to a whole new level...KUDOS to the Cast Women!

tmujdrica said...

Woa thats awesome! i just read Burned and i heart it! was brilliant and its gonna b such a long time when Awakened comes out! grrr, lol. On your houseofnight.com site can you please put Awakened on there with a blurb and first chapter????
Pretty please with Stark on top???
Bye, love from Tadaya :)

Cheerly said...

OMG!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe how good the House of Series books are! I read all of them and I am thrilled that I got to read Burned! it was totally awesome! I am super excited and anxious to get my hands on Awakened when it comes out! P.C. and Kristin Cast are the best and I love your work! Great job =)

PC Cast said...

Guys - AWAKENED will be released January 4th. I can't write it faster; it won't be published sooner. And sneak peeks won't be published for a long time. I've just started the books. It takes writing and rewriting. NO ONE will see it for months and months...

Poppy said...

Hey P.C,
Your books are amazing. I mean, you must seriously have a creative mind! I myself am trying to write a book, but I have no experience at all, and am just writing what comkes to my head. I was wondering if maybe you could give me some tips?

I've recommended all my friends the HoN books, but only my one friend has read them all like moi! The others aren't all that big on reading. Maybe that makes me a dork! But really - the books are awesome - Yesterday I had a mega-bad stomach-ache and I was reading for hours. But then I finished Burned and I was disappointed because I've read all the books in my library and that was the only new one I'd got(me and my friend literally ran to the bookstore last week)!
Thanks x

Xx...Katie...xX said...

aww lol thats loooong! But I don't mind :D I am so glad that burned is out and that your on awakened as I absolutely heart your writing :) Thaanks for being magical :DD
<3 Katie

ELIZMG said...

I'm so exicted :D
have fun writing it..
rephaim owns

Just Dreams said...

Well, Where to start!!!??? I finished Burned and I need to said that I totally love your books... I wish that i didn't read it so fast :) now I'm counting the days to get the new book. Should I ask if you can write it fast??? lol just a jock!! thanks for such a wonderful story.

MCRluffer4life said...

i just want to say i hope stevie rae and rephaim are in Awakened is much (or more) as they were in burned!! they're my fav characters :D rephaims my fav though :D

Heather said...

OMG I love Your Books!!!!
They are like the best thing EVER!!!!!!!! Hey i Have a friend who is an AMAZING writer, and she has actually started writing a story and i wanted to get you opinion on it...
Here's a link that has her story
http://www.fictionpress.com/u/625504/

PC Cast said...

To Heather who sent me a link to her friend's story: please refer to my advice for aspiring authors in the archives of my blog. I don't read unsolicited unpublished work; I explain why in the blog.

Guardians29 said...

Mrs. Cast I believe what you write is comical and romantic. I do hope you will never let darkness touch you for your writing is delicate. I'm a proud sponsor of your books. Keep working you shall go far in life.

Zoey.&Stark.
StevieRae.&Rephaim.

***tAyLoR!?=] said...

OMG! I absolutely love your series! I almost cried though when I finished Burned because now I don't have anything good to read! =( I was just wondering... Is Awakened really estimated to come out January 4, 2011?! Because (not to be over dramatic) I think I might just die if I have to wait that long!! The books are soooo good and I'm just dying to keep reading! Okay, well, that is my question =) Though you only have to answer if you have the time, of course.
You guys are totally amazing by the way =D xoxo

-Taylor

PC Cast said...

January 4th is the release date. It's not going to change. I have to have time to write the book, then it has to go through the publishing process.

Princess Kutscher said...

I would just like to start by saying that i love the HoN books. I have been addicted to them since i read the first book just a short 3 months ago. I finish them so fast because I am totally enthralled. I hope you have as much enjoyment writting them as I do reading them. There is magic in your writting. January seems like a long time away. However, I will be buying your other books to pass the time!!! Thank you for allowing my mind to escape and live in your writing.

chasity said...

i LOVE your series. i read twilight series and i liked to read about vampires, so my friends introduced me to your books. i started reading them about a month ago and already im caught up with eveyone. i got burned the first day it came out and finished the day after. i can;t wait till awakened comes out! i want to see what happens to zoey and stark. i hope they stay together. i really hope zoey doesn't go back to erik. stark is way better for her. although i feel sorry for her because heath died, but i can;t get over the fact that stevie ray went ditched dallas .i thought they were cute together. well i guess she's happy with rephaim(?) well can't wait to see what happens! i hope kalona and neferet get their butt kicked LoL!

Cencerae P. said...

finished burned last week !! can NOT wait for awakened . . . i'm going gaga trying to imagine what could happen next. i'm so happy there are going to be at least 12! i'm so not ready for this series to be over ! -sigh- and i think it's totally great you started awakened on my 21st birthday . . . yay! can't wait ! xoxo

Animeluvr1729 said...

PC I absolutely love your books!! I just got burned last Sunday and finished it today. I'm soo happy that you still have 5 more books coming out :)) I never want HoN to end!! my friend showed me this series last year and I was hooked. I even made my other friends read this as well. Even though there is a vampire fad out I honestly think your series surpasses the Twilight saga. <33 I hope the movie comes out soon! Good Luck writing!! :)

moonbaby said...

I just have to say that I can not wait for Awakened to come out!!! I have read all of the HON books in 4 days... lol... I simply could not put them down.

thao said...

Honfan1 said...

You truly are an inspiration to many including me! I love your books and i'm so glad that i've had a chance to read your amazing works. You truly are an amzing artist and i thank you for writing these books!

Gregie said...

OMG! I love this series! I mean no offense to the Twilight series, but HON's vamps could sooooo kick the Cullen's butt. I can so relate to these characters, and can so see the pint of view they have with their problems. Keep it UP!

Kayla said...

I cannot believe how amazing your books were...if i may ask...What are some other series you have wrote so i'll have something to read while i am restlessly waiting for awakened?

PC Cast said...

Kayla, you can see all the books I have written at www.pccast.net.

Happy reading!

Kayla said...

Thankyou so much Mrs.Cast...I can't tell you how much your House of Night novels have influenced me...I mean I have my own movie script written out..Thankyou yet again *bows*

I was wondering if your Divine Beginnings will be made into a published book or is it going to stay an efile? I know you are busy and I do not want to waste your time. You are an amazing author and I can not wait to get your next book.....I have read everything you have wrote so far. Thanks so much for bringing to life the wonderful stories in your head!!!

PC Cast said...

Hi Tracey - Yes! I just got word from Harlequin that DIVINE BEGINNINGS will be published in an anthology titled DARKNESS DIVINE. I'll post dates, etc., as soon as I have them. Thanks for asking!

LizF said...

I'm sure you've gotten this question before, how many books in the House of Night series do you plan to write?

I absolutely ADORE them and was just curious.

Thanks!
-Liz

Kayla said...

Hey Mrs.Cast...sorry to be bothering you once again i know you're a busy and most wonderful author but if you don't mind me asking...well i'm considering writing a book myself and i was wondering if there are any tips you could give me for getting started?

Kayla said...

Mrs.Cast, I'm sorry to bother you again, but I have a question, Well i'm thinking about beginning a book and I was wondering if you could give me a few tips for getting started? I would appreciate it very much.

Thankyou,
*fists over heart and bows*

Stefanie said...

OMG I absolutely LOVE your books and can't wait for more I'm DIEING to see when Awakened is coming out and I know it'll be as great as all the rest have been!!! Just wanted to know when the possible release date is I've heard a lot of "January 4th's" but I wanted to make sure so I can make more room on my bookshelf and get another special bookmark for the next one(I've got a special bookmark for every book from Marked to Burned)

and 1 question... Who is on the cover of Hunted??? I thought it was Kalona but I wasn't sure because he had tattoos on his back

Stefanie said...

heyyyy don't forget to update us on when you're going to go to certain borders in certain cities because you are an AMAZING writer it's pretty much my dream to meet you now!!!

M.R said...

imagination is the ancient key
that unlocks every hidden door

good luck, and thank you for writing these books

greetings M.R

Brianna said...

OMG I can't wait!!! Burned was amazing!
Can you just tell me if Darius is going to turn evil? After Neferet and Loren I have a sneaky suspicion he is next and it's horrible, please tell me I am wrong!

Love Brianna xx

Sammy Boo said...

Pamela said...

I know these are 'teen' books and at the bookstore you even have to go to the teen section to buy them but I'm almost 27 (this month) and I own them all so far and have really enjoyed reading them. Jan 4th huh? Hopefully, baby #2 won't show up until at least !an 6th then so I have time to read it or maybe it can accompany me to the hospital. Haha.

FashionObsessed... said...

Ive read them all through at least 3 to 4 times!!! i cannot wait for awakened to be realeased i feel on edge!!! ahahah I love the house of night series, they are the only books i ever read! i just wanna say though thankyou soo much for writing them, i feel so connected to zoey and when i read i feel as if i am zoey in the books, you and kristen are such a huge inspiration :) x

Allie Bobbi said...

I am so excited for awakened because I just finished burned. I am a huge fan of all your books but was just wondering about something. I am hearing rumors that the release date of Awakened is going to be January 4th 2011, I was wondering if that was true, or if it was an estimate, or just wrong all together.

Hatti said...

G'day,
I Loved Burned!!! But er, I though I saw Awakened in a book store in Italy, I didn't buy it cuz I thought they would be every where (I was on holidays and kinda cut off from Australia so I didn't kow when they were released) but I couldn't find it in France or the UK, so I checked online to find the release in JAN next year! So I'm really confused. Guess I was mistaken, but I know for sure I saw a book by you that wasn't any one in the series I had read before, and the cover design was so similar to the other HoN books... have you written any others that were in the HoN? Sorry, really long question for a really short question, but I just wanna add that Im lovin the parts with Steavie Rea and Rephaim,
Cheers!

JacquDee:) said...

Mrs. Cast,
I ADORE the HON series! I've always been an avid reader, but this is my fave series EVA!! I can totally realate to how the characters talk, I love how Zoey isn't always sure of her next move, and I LOVE the twists like Z and Aphrodite becoming friends! Awakened is going to be sooo cool. Just a quick question: are there really going to be more than 12 books? You and Kristen are SOO amazing :) Thanks for your time :)

PC Cast said...

Hi Guys - yes, AWAKENED will be released January 4th.

You can see a complete list of all of my books at www.pccast.net.

Right now I have a contract for 12 YA books. If Zoey's story takes more than that to tell - then I'll write more. It all depends on how it unfolds.

linny said...

it's OMGI need the next book bad (awakened book 8) like what am I going to do on my night shifts NOW with out the house of nights book as I have already finished all the book from 1-7. I soooooo can NOT wait till next year i need it NOW. I am going to find it very very had as I am going to miss Zoey and Stark....

Irene_in_SL said...

Hi P.C.
I am so excited for Awakened! I actually just found the HON series. My siser got Marked while she was on bed rest and thought it was awesome so I read it! Wow. Talk about life changing! I love when I find an author who writes amazing books that keeps me wanting more! Thanks!:) You're Amazing!!!! I can't wait for Awakened! :)

PoptropicaAwesomeness said...

OMG! just finisheed reading Burned!!! SO AWESOME!!!! Im like dying for Awakened to come out!your a awesome writer and I'm hooked on the HoN series. If the HoN series (well some of the books anyway) get turned into a movie i just hope they dont make a bad movie out of it. The series is just plain awesomeness and i dont want the movie ppl to make a bad movie out of a awesome series! Anyway ur awesome, keep writing and CANT WAIT!!!!

Iris said...

I just finished reading Burned and I really wish I read SLOW so I didn't have to wait until next year! Agh! It's killing me. Your books are GREAT! I just caught up in less then two weeks on the last three books. Ah oh well guess I gotta wait. Again your books are GREAT! If you need a name for a new character feel free to use mine--Iris lol! It would be great LOL.

HoN luver :)p said...

haha im with "iris" that name would be great in one of ur books (lreferably HoN) i also think a name like "kelsey" or daina (day-na) would also work great! just sayin an idea!

traceysweet25 said...

Are you going to be writing any more books to go along with The Avenger? I love yours and your daughters work very much. I cannot wait to read anything else you come out with. I have read everything out this far. Keep up the great work! Thanks for every book that you have wrote!!!

PC Cast said...

Hi Tracey - thanks for enjoying the AVENGER. There will be other books called Nocturne Bites written in the Time Raiders world, but I probably won't write one. No time...

nelle said...

traceysweet25 said...

Do you know when Goddess of Legend, Goddess of Troy, and Goddess of Camelot will be released? I read somewhere that two will be released in 2010 and one in 2011 but I have not been able to find out what months they will be released. Thanks so much for your amazing books. And thanks to you and Kristen for the HoN books. I can't wait to read more of yours and her work.

PC Cast said...

Hi Tracey - I'm assuming you're from the UK because all of those books except for Goddess of Legend are already out in the US. GoL will be released in December. The rest of the Goddess Summoning Books will follow beginning with Goddess of the Rose in January. Check with any major UK bookstore and they can give you the schedule for the rest of them.

Happy reading!
PC

traceysweet25 said...

I am from the US and I have been unable to locate the Goddess of Troy and the Goddess of Camelot books. Are the maybe titled something else over here or is there some place that I can find them that you know of? Sorry for taking up your time but I really must find these books. Thanks again for everything.

PC Cast said...

Tracey - oh, I understand the confusions. GODDESS OF TROY is titled WARRIOR RISING in the US. WR is available right now. GODDESS OF LEGEND is GODDESS OF CAMELOT, and it'll be released in December.

nyxandnothingelse said...

I' from Croatia where are only 4 or 5 books of HON translated, so I read them on english, and I love them...they're so fantastic, I laugh, I cry, I'm getting confused, I'm falling in love, I live that book...I cried so much when Rephaim and Stevie Rae broke up at the end of Burned...everything is going to be ok, but it's not ok for now... :'(

CBlair_nw said...

Hi my name is Cristina I speak from Spain I love your Saga House of Night is amazing thank you very much for took us to Zoey's world with all the books, when I was reading I have felt a lot of diverse and conflicting emotions as the passage happiness to intrigue through the anguish along with the butterflies of feel Zoey with her "multiple boyfriends."
Really THANK YOU for making me enjoy reading.

A greeting.

I hope I have written everything correctly, sorry if something is misspelled.

BBaxxy said...

I can't wait to read Awakened! I just adore Rephaim! He's seriously my favorite male character that I've read about in a long while!! Aggghhhhh, I just love him. And I had to say 'male' because it was the only word I was sure about, since, well.. "guy" doesn't quite work. Lol.

Thank you so much for writing the series!

Hannah said...

gettin ready to start burned.. im so sad that Heath dies. :( Cant wait til Awakened!

I Love Warewolves said...

I love these books so I'm glad your writing Awakened. I just want to know what inspired you to write these novels? These are great books, better than Twilight.

JacquDee:) said...

Mrs. Cast
I can't wait until Awakened! I'm so excited, I've re-read all the books. Will you ever be in Kansas City Missouri? If you are, I'd really like to go! Your books inspire me. I'm sorry for taking up your time, but I just wanted to telly ou that I appreciate you taking time to write these books. You and Kristen are amazing :)

Faith said...

i have another question. it is about devine by blood. i just dont understand it. could you explain it to me?

PC Cast said...

Faith,
AWAKENED will be released Jan 4th, as I've stated on my blog and websites. Your question about Divine by Blood makes no sense, but there is an entire blog entry about the Divine books in my archives. You can also find out more information about them on my website, www.pccast.net.

Happy reading,
PC

luvsvampskoolchica said...

hey i just wanted to say that i am a huge fan and am extremely excited to read awakened me and my mom love your books and fight over who gets to read them first (i usually win though)anyways thank you for taking the time to read these it means a lot to a fan

MissSRC said...

Mrs. Cast,
I'm sure you have heard this often and received lots of praise for it but, your books are wonderful. I wasn't really into books and series but your books really made me want to expand my mind to different things and thoughts that wouldn't have come to me without help of a fantastic inspiration. I have read in previous comments that you are making at lest 12 books in the H.o.N series. YES!. Thank you!!!!.
And I assure you, as long as there is a Zoey and darkness surrounding her, there will always be fans of H.o.N. Are you touring Australia soon and are you going to be in Sydney?
Happy Holidays,
Sarah
:O)

Sierra said...

PC Cast said...

I don't have a clue about foreign release dates. You'll have to check with your local bookstore.

kailey and christy said...
