iTessie said...

Oh, I would read it if it weren't white on black, my eyes can't handle that.
And I have never been a big fan of audio books.
I guess I have to wait until the book comes out.
But I can wait, it isn't so far away :)

Hello Miss Cast,

I just wanted to say that I think the newly released chapters are AMAZING! They've made me even more excited for January 4th (if that's even possible).

Thank you SO much for including Neferet's point of view! For so long I've wanted to read things the way she sees them and get that insight into her character...I just think that she's so complex and messed up in so many ways, so it's fascinating to get a little glimpse into her (totally crazy)mind. She's always been somewhat of an enigma even at this stage in the series, which I find really compelling to find out more.

I'll stop rambling now- all the best to you and Kristin! As you can probably tell...can't wait for Awakened to be released. :)

The excerpts are great! Just what I expected!
--So now I can finally stop OCD-checking the House of Night sight for the first chapter... The thought makes me a bit sad, actually.

I love the series, i think you and your daughter are an amazing combo for these books. I was wondering if you plan on coming to Milwaukee, WI or the surrounding area anytime soon, i would love to come to a book signing if you do. i look forward to geing to read every book as it comes out and constantly am re-reading them inbeween lol. i wish you the best of luck with your writing, may the words always flow with ease for you and thank you for writing an amazing series so far :)

PC Cast said...

! - I can only speak enough Spanglish to vaguely understand that you heart HoN. So, thank you!

JL - I'm mentioned a few times in my blog that we're not touring in the US for AWAKENED because of the winter weather. We will be doing lots of e-stuff (blogs and interviews and such), and I am coming to Scotland in January with Seoras to visit family for the holidays, so I'll be doing events in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Sterling. I'll post specific info for my Scottish fans as I know it!

XXXOOO

so cool and completely addictive I can't wait for the book as soon as I read the end set my friend the message she was so happy.

cheeziphish said...

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! LOVING THE RAPHAIM pic...is that RED tats? My daughter and I cannot wait!

Cemre said...

Hello Ms. Cast,
I am a Turkish reader of your books. Even though I've gone to American schools so far, I know my language, and I just wanted to share an interesting fact;that Nefret in Turkish means 'hatred'. So for me, the name itself is unsympathetic :D
Your books have come out in Turkey too, and there are millions of fans here ;)

iema said...

is there gonna be a movie of house of nights?

meganmcguppy18 said...

Ahhhmazing!! Is there going to be a book trailer for Awakened? Like the other books? I really enjoy watching those :)

PC Cast said...

Hi Megan - yep! There will be book trailers, and they're super cool!

Cemre said...

Hey Ms Cast;
I was just wondering about how long it takes you to finish each book (approximatley)? There are 7 months between the time you said you started on Awakened,and the present. But you were already finished with it before..

Thank you for sparing time

hollie-mackereth said...

hi, i hadn't read a book in a couple of years before starting the house of night series, my friends had all read it and strongely recommended it. I didn't think i'd like because of the whole vampire fad but i really enjoyed it right from the start. I has only taken me a month to read the seven all ready out and i'm eagerly anticipating the eighth. I've heard, through the grape vine, that this will be the last but im hoping and praying that its a vicious lie! I too can't stand reading white on black so im twidling my thumbs for the full book :D loving the series so much, most enjoyable read! thanks, hollie

KaitlynCoyle22 said...

Nadya said...

I'm glad the emergence of new books in the series House of Night! All my friends love to read them, including me! I look forward to when the Awakened will be released in Russian! Read the first three chapters I really enjoyed it! good luck and advancement!Sorry for the incorrect expression of my thoughts in English:D

Nadya said...

Dear Mrs Kast! Please tell us under what conditions and how long you're writing a book series House of Night? And how do you feel about Twilight Saga?:)

Viking said...

Ok... This is a total spoiler, but I don't know any other way to reach you, and I'm sure you can always just not post my post if you choose, so here goes...

I finally got my hands on that copy of Awakened. I must admit that at first I was a little disappointed in the size, but you definately made up for it in content! WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!

Thank you SOOOO much for bringing Heath back, even if it's just his soul, but from the basic description, I'd say it's his body too. Not too sure yet, and I can hardly wait 'till Destined comes out - I won't say I can't wait because, well, I can, and where's the fun in ruining the surprises? Obviously, I loved the rest of the book too, but Heath is my favourite character. He always makes me laugh, not to mention I think he's SUPER FINE... I cried myself to sleep when I read about his death... I know, it sounds really stupid, because I do KNOW he's only a book character, but I do heart me some Heath. There is actually a Facebook group called "Everytime I Think of Heath Luck, I Get That Warm and Fuzzy Feeling" started and run by... you guessed it... me! It'll be great to see how much of him has remained with his soul.

But, back to my main point, I was also really glad that you brought him back in a way that would actually add to the plot, and not just be a "yay for the fans" moment. I think it really makes you a great author when you take your plot and your writing more seriously than just telling fans what they want to hear.

Anyway, thanks for the amazing series so far. I look forward to reading more!
