Update


Well, I'm home in Tulsa (the view out of my front door) working like crazy on AWAKENED! Yes, it'll be released January 4th. No, I can't write any faster - just thinking about my due date makes me want to run shrieking down that lane!

I don't have any firm movie update, though I am excited about the direction my producer is taking and hope to have good news for all of you soon soon soon!

No (again) I don't have casting call news. No (again) I don't have a clue when a movie will be released. Uh, it's not filmed yet. Yes (again) I'll post news here as I get it. If I haven't posted the answers to your movie questions it's either: 1) because I don't know them, or 2) have already answered them in a previous post.

I should have some fun FLEDGLING HANDBOOK sneak peeks for you soon! Oh, and I do know it'll be released in the UK/Australia/New Zealand in October, too!

UK folks - sadly, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to tour in the next couple months like I was hoping to. I really have to focus on getting AWAKENED finished. You want me to finish it, right? Right? Sorry, I'm really missing the Highlands, especially 'cause it was 107 degrees Fahrenheit today in Tulsa. NO JOKE. It's too hot to breathe...

XXXOOO

I'm very excited for Awakened! You'll be releasing it a day before my birthday. Have fun writing~ :)

can't wait for awakened!!!!!

Beth said...

Thank you for the hard work! And thank you for taking the time out to update the blog, I always look forward to the updates I find here.

I just finished the Divine trilogy and I could not have asked for a better ending. Every time I think about it, I smile.

Started Elphame's Choice on the drive home (yay! for road trips) and am thoroughly looking forward to seeing how that story will progress.

PC! This photo by Elizabeth May reminds me so much of your HOS novels, with the tattoos! http://auriethepixie.deviantart.com/#/d2vflbk

raring_horse43 said...

I love the view from your door! Very pretty. Do you have horses, because I see a lot of white fence :) Can't wait for Awakened!

Janice said...

HI :)

Becky said...

Welcome back to OK! I hope to someday make it to Tulsa and meet you and Kristin....just a short trip up the turnpike!

Susan said...

Releasing it on my birthday, what a great gift! I can't wait to read it. I'm in Tulsa too, stay cool!

Bookgirl91 said...

Im also very excited for Awakened. It comes out before my birthday also. So I know what I will be asking for. LOL

Mandy Mo said...

That's awesome your back in Tulsa. I live in Broken Arrow. It's suppose to be 115 (heat index) today! YES! Gotta love that Oklahoma weather!

Jessica said...

Well, I hope that everything with writing Awakened goes the way you planned it. I will defiantly be ordering a copy and will consume it the day it comes out. :) And I cannot wait until the movie comes out! It will be awesome. I just know it. Oh, and I know how you feel about the heat. We keep on getting really weird heat waves in North Carolina. Nearly died the other day while walking.

PC Cast said...

R.H. - I'm in the process of acquiring a couple Quarter Horses!

Ang from Oz said...

Its freezing here this morning in OZ, well not freezing exactly but cold! Sending some cool weather your way PC. Are you going to do an update on your blog of GODDESS OF LEGEND?

PC Cast said...

Oh Ang honey! If only! It was so hot here today I thought I was going to suffocate. Seriously a big ol' sink hole opened up on the BA (major expressway from Tulsa to Broken Arrow) because IT'S TOO DAMN HOT. Ugh. I'll be looking forward to your lovely cool Oz breeze in the next day or so. And my UK publisher has started to put together a tour Down Under for 2011. Fingers crossed I can work it in!! XXOO

urgirlconnie said...

Wow. the view out the front of your porch is pretty. i always wanted to live somewhere like that. well, i'm fourteen so i may yet still. :) love your books.

Manoela said...

Hi! I'm from Brazil and I'm a big fan of yours!!!
I'm looking foward to read awakened!!!
Have a nice time in Tulsa! =)

Manoela said...

Oh, just another thing, I would like to know, how many books are you planning to write???
Thank you very much.

Robert said...

Hello PC!

I am the Hungarian translator of the HON series. I am working on Tempted, and have some questions. 1)In chapter 26 and 36 you start writing about Zoey in third person, and after a few sentences you return to her POV. Is it a mistake and I should translate it in first person from the beginning of the chapter, or is it a part of a bigger plan I cannot see? 2) One of your Hungarian fans asked me what color is Heath's eyes, 'cause in Betrayed he has blue eyes, but later, in Hunted they are brown. I couldn't answer her...

HaleyHON said...

That's such a pretty veiw! And I wish that where I live it was that hot. Usually we're around 25 degrees celsuis, which is aroud 77 farenheit (I think?) on average, but we've been lucky to hit 20 with NO dreary clouds. *Sigh*

And as I've said so many times before, thanks for writing the HoN Books, and I know Awakened will be just as spectacular as the other 7 :) Can't wait!

Stacie & Sophie Price said...

I love how loads of us get Awakened on our birthday or the day after/before... as my birthday is 4th January =) I'll be 22 and still loving HoN as much as any teen reader =D heehees!

Laxgirl said...

I love the houseofnight books! I started on a friday night and finished the first 4 books by the Sunday. When to do you think youll have the first chapter up on the website???

raring_horse43 said...

PC, that's so cool! Horses are the best :D I have four horses. Three are Norwegian Fjords and my horse that I ride is a Quarter Horse x Polish Arab x Belguim cross and she is Palomino in color.

Viktoria said...

HEY PC, I MADE AN AWSOME POSTER OF NEFERET AND I WAS WONDERING IF I COULD EMAIL IT TO YOU JUST TO SEE IF YOU LIKE IT.

PC Cast said...

Hi Viktoria - sure, I'd love to see it! Just email it to me via my administrative assistant, Camden, at camdenclark.pa@gmail.com.

PC Cast said...

Hi Illes - yes, those are mistakes. I would very much appreciate it if you corrected them. If you have any other questions feel free to contact me through my administrative assistant, Camden Clark, at camdenclark.pa@gmail.com. She'll put you in direct contact with me.

rokinfirefly said...

I just wanted to know what your thoughts on the whole ending of the world in 2012?... Because if it is you really need to get on the ball with the next for books… it would really suck not knowing the end.. Lol just saying…

PC Cast said...

Rokinfirefly - my thoughts on the world ending in 2012 in one word: bullpoopie. And I'm writing as fast as I can.

Harold and Joleen Hansen said...

I work for a Vet clinic that works with Street Cats. So when they come in I always tease them about being nuns! I love your books and living in Tulsa and knowing the locations you write about makes the books that much more fun to read! And enjoy the cooler weather if 95 today!!! :)

Viktoria said...

THANKS PC! I SENT IT.

rockenhorsegirl said...

Hey P C!
Just wanted to thank you so much for working so hard. I know that if it were me I would break under stress so I give you props :) I am a HUGE HoN fan. But so are A LOT of other people. I cant wait for Awakened to come out. I'm dying to read the first chapter on the website. Good luck with the writing!

Addi said...

No Scotland was so looking forward to seeing you, oh well i know your busy xx hope you can come eventualy. AQ .

Now I need to go and deliver the bad news to my friends as they don't use Blogger. Dang!

iloveHON ;) said...

hi p.c thanx
it must be soo hot, in the UK it windy and chilly :(

i was wondering, i made a poster for BURNED with a freind, and i was wondering if i could email it to you?

thank you
Amber xx :) x

hon lover said...

Hi P.C,

I devoured Burned in less than a day. It was so awesome! I really loved how you delved into the characters more than normal. You actually got to see what some of them were thinking, not just Zoey's POV. I think that makes the book even stronger. Can't wait for Awakened! :) Thanks for a great series. :)

Natalie said...

Hello. P.C.
I love the HON books and am looking forward to Awakend comes out:) My favorite book in the series is Burned, and I just want to thank you for all the books:) I hope you enjoy writing the books and that you do not feel pressured in the process.

Natalie :)

PC Cast said...

Hi Amber, I'd love to see the poster you made. You can send it to me via my administrative assistant, Camden Clark, at camdenclark.pa@gmail.com.

Heehees on the Street Cat "nuns"! Tell the ladies I said "hi"!

AND THE WEATHER IN TULSA FINALLY BROKE! Yea!

KC said...

I can't wait for awakened to be out! I'm a total bookworm so it will be a pleasure to read more books! Is it true that your going to write twelve books for the series? I herd it o wikipedia or something and I thought that was interesting because most authors eith only write one or two books but if they do a series it usually ends at five jk rowelling as an exception your books aswell as an exception...

GossipGirl101 said...

Hi.I read the first 3 books and I will continue reading.How much books will be released? 9? What about the movies? Best wishes with your career ! Sorry about my writing I m not from America. :)

JessB said...

Since I've started reading Marked I'm excited to go to Tulsa and be where I always dreamed of. I'm a brazilian fan, and I'm so obsessed with your books that my mom took them from me! I just want to meet you, my idol, my inspiration. I love all the books of House Of Night that you've written, thanks a lot for writing, you're my hero!

MrsONeill said...

Ms. Cast

Anxiously awaiting Awakened!!! I love your series and I have read all of them several times. I love to read and have tons of books and yours are my favorite by far. Except for maybe Harry Potter HEE HEE!!!! But who doesn't Heart some Harry Potter. Keep up the great work. You and Kristin are great.

O Meu Ser said...

You are the best writer alive!!!

I'm from Portugal and Hunted was published this week, but the House of Night Saga is perfect and I have already read them all!!!

I can't wait for Awakened! Please ask to the world's essence for inspiration to continue!

Sérgio Pinto, Portugal

Marcelle said...

Marcelle said...

i can't wait for awakened. The series is great! I love all the mythology in it

Nicole said...

Hey there,

I just want to say i absolutely LOVE your books. And just so you know even in the Netherlands (where i live) you are very often heard of.

I cant wait for awakened!!!

iloveHON ;) said...

Hi pc cast,
I will send it next week cause at the mo I'm on holiday,
thanks Amber xx

heaven said...

Hi! My friend introduced me to the House of Night novel and I'm just simply crazy about it.

I can't wait for Awakened! I'm really young, but I believe I have the potential to write my own autobiography. I'm a bit hesitant about writing it, I'm thinking of waiting several years to write it.

My question is; is it possible to start writing at the age of fourteen?

xx

Marienell said...

OMG. I can't wait for Awakened.
I love the HoN series. I really do hope that Zoey and Stark gets together. They are right for each other. Heath is okay, but I didn't like how he forced his blood on Zoey. It's like he tricked her. STARK is definitely it!!!

Sara said...

Hi, im a 14 year old girl my name is Sara. I am in love with the HoN collection! Since I am not if Inglish nature (im portuguese) I have to wait about 3-4 months before the books get to me after the release date, here in portugal! That really buggs me. But I would wait all the time in the world to get this collection! I just found this blog on Blogger I was so glad to even think I could send you a message. I wanted to say im so glad that the collection might be turned into a movie or a serie. Its great news, even if they have minor changes its still the amazing story you wrote with Kristin! I just finished reading Burned (because of the 3 months delay :) it was AWSOME im so glad Zoey and Stark are back!

PC Cast said...

Sara - I have an entire blog post on advice for aspiring authors. I answer your questions and much more there. Happy reading!

Marienell said...

Aaaah...I can't wait for Awakened. Oh, please please please, I hope that Stark and Zoey will end up together at the end. Heath is nice, but I didn't like how he kept using his blood to lure Zoey in. He basically shoved his blood to her. =) With Stark and Zoey, it's honest and pure. She even felt that he is her soulmate. I get gitty just thinking about them too. Ohhh, please let them end up together!!! I can't wait. Thank you for your hard work.

Alicante said...

Aaahh, good luck on your writing. I'm going to be moving in Jan to Italy...so I can't preorder the book because I won't have an address to deliver it to. It's driving me nuts. =(

Thasy said...

Hi, I'm a big fan of his work, and would like to make a tribute,
through a video, but wanted your permission to make the video, as
pretender to talk about the book and make a small representation. I am
very anxious for the next book. Kisses.

PC Cast said...

Thasy,
There is no problem with you making a HoN tribute video as long as it has no commercial use.

Best of luck to you,
PC

hon lover said...

Mrs. Cast,

When you get the tour information will you please post it here? I've been looking on your actual website to check out the tour dates, but it would really help if you post them. :)

~You're millionth number one fan!
xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Jacqueline said...

I am really excited for Awakened, as everyone else in the world is. Burned left me biting my nails and wondering what will happen next. Have you ever thought of having a Q&A post, where we leave questions and you answer them? i know it seems like a bunch of work, but us as your fans have some unanswered questions. You don't have to answer all of the questions, like the repeated questions. It would be so great if you considered this. I got the idea from Ally Carter's blog.

Marina said...

Hello. I just read Untamed because the other books in Croatia are not transleted yet.I don t know why but I would like to Heat and Zoey end up together.I like the first 4 books very much and I think that I will like the reast.Sorry for my bad writing. Good by! :D

PC Cast said...

Good idea Jacqueline, but right now I'm under deadline with AWAKENED and I don't have the time. Maybe in the future...

PC Cast said...

Markie Star - I would suggest you read my other books! A full list of them can be found on my website at www.pccast.net.

Markie Star said...

Thanks Ms.Cast...Can you Tell me more about the Divine Series?

Kelly said...

I absolutely love your books! My friend told me about them and right now im on "Burned". They're so exciting I read the first 4 in one week!
-Kelly

Marlena said...

Hey P.C. Thanks so much for your hard work on the HoN series!!! I truly hope that this whole movie business and any other publicity things going on with the HoN books goes the way you hoped and planned because You and your daughter definitely deserve it! :) Ive been reading these books non-stop this summer and thank you so much for making my summer vacation a more enjoyable one from reading your books! Also I was wondering, are you a fan of True Blood? becuase me and my mom (she also has read all of these books!) are HUGE fans and we watch it everry sunday!! i was just wondering if you were into that too!
Thanks so much and have fun writing in the heat! :)

s.ward said...

PC i made this video for the House of Night series i would like it if you told me wat you think :) and i cant wait for awakened! http://animoto.com/play/6sVywUx8pHC1oXvDTpEx3g

Beth said...

Markie, they are fantasy books set in a parallel world called Partholon. They were written for an adult audience so expect sex and drinking. My favorite part of these books is the letter from PC at the beginning of each novel. Plus, the story really is awesome. Don't forget to pick up the YA books based in Partholon, Elphame's Choice and Brighid's Quest. If you read my blog http://bethlibrary.blogspot.com you can read my 'reviews' of the books.

PC Cast said...

Markie - go to my website and/or look in the archives of this blog. I give lots of info about that and my other series.

Mariena - yes, I'm a big True Blood fan, as well as a fan of Charlaine Harris's wonderful books.

Destructionable said...

Hehe, it's indeed really hot all over the world(most parts at-least).

It'll be really good for me to see a plot helper with powers for Earth element and to refer to the ground(soil) as Mother... Or perhaps there's one, but i have not read all book that have been released up 'till date -- bulgarian translators just whine about their copyrights and don't do much of a work... Anyhow, most of the people aren't appreciating the Earth, their First Mother that's my point.

Keep the awesome work up, I wish of this epic Zoey's journey to be never ended.

Jes said...

I just wanted to let you know I am so excited for Awakened!! I read all your books within a week. I just could not put them down. Your an excellent writer, I have read tons and tons of books yours were captivating. Are there going to be more after Awakened? I can't wait for them to be out in movies, im hoping that the director does not take out the little details as it always seems books are so much better than movies. Its because sometimes they leave important stuff out of the movie that the book shares. Thank you so much, looking forward to the new book and to see what the future holds.

Jess said...

You write the best books ever! I got the HoN series for my birthday last year and immediately fell in love with them! I absolutely can't wait until awakened! I'm re-reading them all over again at the moment. You are a very very talented author and I LOVE reading your books! It's nearly my birthday so I'm putting other books that you've written on my birthday list! Who is your favourite character in the HoN series? I love Aphrodite - she's such a great character and she makes me laugh a lot!
Thank you so much for writing this series - it's the best!

maddy moo said...

Hello my name is maddie. I just LOOOOOOOOOOOVE your HoN books. I saw a book a the other day, FALLEN by Lauren Kate. You commented on it and if you thought it was good to your amazing standerds then it must be worth reading. so i look forward to reading it :)
I havn't read Burned just yet but I am really looking forward to it!
Keep up the great work!

Diana said...

Dear... Ms.Best-Author-in-the-world, iv commeted b4 on how my best friend and i got House of night fever and could not but ur books down, after we wer done with those ,i started to read the devine series, and i would like to say congrads, because it was such a great hit, that now i cant find the second one in any bookstore. hehe,i am honored to call my self a true p.c Cast fan, i am a in coming freshman to one of the smallest county high schools in the the state of mo, wer oklahoma, arkansas and missouri meet. i have kept the book cover for ur book Chosen, i hung it on my wall exposing the quote ont the back that states "Surviving High School Takes Blood, Sweat, and Tears...... Mostly Blood." i find it very tru, and motivating to make wise desitions in my life, becuse i have noticed that many tragic things happen in both fictional vamp, high schools and real ones, one day u will see someone ther and the next day they r not, it all based on there desitons, just like in vampire high school, not everyone makes it through, it ranges from drinking and drugs, texting and driving, teen preg. car accidents, exclusive clicks(the dark dughters are a vam. example) ect., just like at the house of night wer the hadest thing to do is make it throgh the change. but in our case its to make it up to the stage and get our deplomas, to start our independent lifes as young adults.

thank u p.c u r a tru insperation.
<3 u
diana r.

PC Cast said...

Moon - I don't know Within Temptation's work. I'll pass along your request about updating the screen savers. And I never read fan fic.

Sally said...

I can't wait for Awakened!! I am completely addicted to the series. I only wish you would come to South Texas one day. Well, enjoy writing! =)

Sydney said...

P.C.

Excuse me for the very horrible writing I'm about to have. (: just got home from the grand canyon. And While I was there I finished Tempted and Burned. I have to say, wow, holy moly, EEEEEP, I am so excited for Awakened. I need it in my lap now. Cause. I'm really starting to love Stevie Rae and Rephaim. << If i spelled his name wrong, bah its because i am tired. You're doing an amazing job. I love lvoe love this series so much. It's actually got some depth to it and explains so much background and history unlike some other vampyre series i have read. <33333333333 Thanks so Much once again and I am so looking forward to Awakened.

Hayden said...

Hey, PC! Do you have any idea when we can expect an AWAKENED cover and what'll be on it? Any teasers? x)

Brittin said...

I was just wondering if you know how to download the get marked pictures on the house of night website? I already pressed the download button and nothng happened. Thanks so much!!! Can't wait for your next books :)

smile's box said...

OMG ! I'm brazilian and here the books will delay for arrive. but we are very very very excited for awakened and the film!
oh, the fleending handbook too!
xxoo !

PC Cast said...

Hayden - I have no idea when the cover will be released. I do know it's not done yet. I haven't even had a sneak preview.

Brittin - sorry, don't have a clue.

A_Lafont_Lurver said...

lol, run shrieking down the lane.

Mz. Attitude said...

Hello Ms Cast,
Big fan, Not kidding.
Just wanted to ask a question about the movie.
Are you planning on having ALL the books made to movies, or so far does it look like just a few?
Thank you, you're my inspiration for writing.
~Emma

PC Cast said...

LL - YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO GOT THAT! heeheeheeehees

Emma - check out the movie post in this blog. That's where I answer movie questions.

Anonymous said...

Heey!!
I am supper excited for Awakend!!! :D
I love the House of Night series! They are amazing!! :)
Have fun

Emmarae's Mommy said...

Hi!
I'm a new mom & I love the HoN series. I'm super glad they are making the books into movies, it makes it so much easier to see my 'old friends' and pay attention to my beautiful daughter.
PC, I was wondering, do you read Stephen King? If you do, does it ever freak you out a little, all these people saying they're your number one fan? Haha, just curious!
I'm very excited to see what is going to happen in Awakened. I don't like Erik, but I wonder about the connection Zoey seemed to have with him in the first book, how when she saw him it seemed liked he was the only person in the room. Was that just teenage infatuation or something more? Maybe he will grow up? Also, the indian boy. Does the vision mean that if he rejects darkness that he won't be weird mutant bird boy any more?
Thanks for the books, I reccomend them to EVERYONE.
Your #1 fan! ;)

Hayden said...

Do authors have any insight on what goes in their covers? Do they collaborate with the designers, or is it all just the designer's decisions?

PC Cast said...

EM - I can't give away plot spoilers, but I will say that the big connection between Zoey and Erik was, indeed, teenage infatuation. Erik's path is different than Zoey's.

Hayden - that depends on the publisher and the author. Usually authors have very little input on their covers and even their titles. My lovely HoN publisher does ask for my ideas and opinions on the covers.

kylie214 said...

do you know when awakened will be shipped her in the philippines ?? im a big fan!!

Sabrina Black said...

Yay!!! Awakened is coming out on my birthday!

Thank you for working so hard on it! I'm a beginning novelist and I know just how tough it can be sometimes! :)

Hayden said...

Hey!
Sorry I'm asking so many questions, but did they reprint Goddess of the Rose?
Because on the B&N website, the e-book has the version of the cover on your website. Then, there's a reprint of it in Paperback on there, too. It has a purple-y cover.
Is it a different version, and do you know why?
And also, do you think they'll reprint Goddess of Love and Warrior Rising so that the covers match the others in the series?

Thanks, PC!

PC Cast said...

Kylie - you'll have to check with a local bookstore. I rarely know overseas pub dates.

Hayden - yes, many of my books have been reprinted with new covers. They're the same books, though.

Aalliyah said...

I am so excited for Awakened and hopefully the "Movie." but sadly I still need to read Burned. And I still think it should be made into a T.V. show! not a Movie!!

br3114 said...

Thank you sooooo much for writing hon books!!!:) you are amazing and please write many more hon books to come!!!

Edna Hishler said...

hey PC!
I AM SOOOOOOO EXCITED FOR AWAKENED!!!!
but is awakened the last book of the house of night series? or is there more?

PC Cast said...

Kylie - I don't know about foreign shipping dates, but if you check with your local bookstore they should be able to tell you.

Edna - No, AWAKENED is not the last book in the series. I'm not sure right now how many there will be. Maybe around 12.

Oh my goodness!! <3 i am soooooooo excited i have read the whole series a billion times and i just LOVE Burned..Eeeeeeeeppppp!! I was on H.O.N website and Awakened seems soo great great great!! :) hope you have fun writing thanks for taking the time!! :) yay!!

HI!!!!!

I have read all the books 3 times (except BURNED twice lol)

AWAKENED seems so far away, only because I have to endure school without the aid of HON. but maybe that's a good thing as it's my final year. Scary stuff. some of my GCSE's in Jan but I will still read Awakened hehe.

There is a point to this message honest. I know you've already said your not sure on release dates over seas but I thought if you have before done UK tours and will hopefully do them again you might know if the release date is the same here as it is US. Some books do, some books come here months after uuggghhh!

Love House of Night.

love scarly x

Hi again, had another question that may be a spoiler, idk. Is Aphrodite going to lose her eye sight? Is that why her eyes go bloodshot now, because since she is no longer a fledgling she isn't as strong enough for the visions? I read the books over alot& I have more questions as I go. If it would be a spoiler sorry, just curious.
Thanks!

after awakened what are you thinking of naming the next book? i am just loving the books and i always hate it when a series ends cause sometimes it leaves me speechless but in a good way

amyacidburn said...

Merry Meet, Both of u are amazing I love the books and my favorite character is Aphrodite, I absolutely adore her, you are my inspiration I love to write but afraid to let someone read it, anyways please don't stop keep writing the H.O.N. I dont want them to end ever, a question, what would u prefer that it was made a movie or series and why??*
