The Awakened trailer is so cool makes you want to read the book. Will you make a competition next time where people from outside America can join in?

I was really heart warmed to see that you dedicated Awakened to LGBT teens. As a gay teenager myself I have experienced first hand some of the prejudices that gay people face in life, particularly teenagers. I think its amazing that you are using your books to show that its absolutely fine to be gay, and life is about love. Thanks, you guys are fab

My friend and I had a fantastic time at your book signing tonight. That was my first one, ever. You are both so personable and fun! Thanks for the wonderful stories and enjoy your time in the UK! Oh, and I mentioned your HON series on the geekmom.com blog

It was exciting to finally meet both of you! Thank you for launching here in Tulsa. I'm looking forward to reading Awakened, tonight! Hehe. Thank you again and the best of luck to you both!
P.S. The cupcakes were beautiful and delicious!

I can't wait to read Awakend. I hope there is a song that goes with Awakend. How are the bookmarks for Street Cats going?

I spent all day reading Awakened and finished about 2 hours ago! Oh my Goddess! Did you have to throw in those 2 bad, bad things?! .. Well of course but still, oh noo! D: I can't wait until November for Destined! <3

apofugapifg and you should have a contest like that where Canadians can join too!:) I would have killed to win that contest!
Blessed be!

I passed the quiz for the Tulsa tour thing, but I'm not a legal resident of the U.S. I wish I can go!

hon lover said...

OMG! I'm crying so hard I can barely ty[e. I'm only on page 63 of awakened. WHY DID YOU DO IT P.C.? Why?! Sadly it's hard not to give anything away but I'm like shocked! I so did not expect it. Neferet is the worst person in the world! I could think of some very bad m words to call HER. Oh my goddess! Why did you have to do it? AHHHHH I will be forever scared.

marisol said...

Just finshed reading awakened, i bought it like at noon, hehe got out of school early just so i could spend all day reading it. 9hrs later I read all the book. Let me just say, i loved one specific line from the book "If it has tires or testicles, its gonna give you problems" that was just hilarious! I too look forward to the next installment. GOOD LUCK WRITING!!!! Oh, as for the poster, he looks good...i mean the poster looks good^-^ or both, haha.

Sami said...

Loved Awakened, hiding it from my mum so i can finish reading it (:

Just had a look at the contest, who ever wins it will have a great time. I would enter it but i live in Australia so it only lets people from America enter it..

Marus'ia said...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR AWAKENED!!! I ALREADY REALLY, REALLY WANT TO READ THIS BOOK!!!

UnderworldQueen said...

P.S. You're the best author ever!

Leanne said...

Hello. Ms. and Miss Cast. I hope you had had Happy Holidays. I wiah you the very best for this New Year, and I hope all of your resolutions become true.

I just want to say that I admire you very much! I live in Mexico, and I first knew about you two when I first read "Marked". It was one of the greatest books I´ve read. From that moment, I became a huge fan of the House of Night Series.

All of the charaters are just awesome!! However, I have to admit my favorite is James Stark. I just love him very much, I wish he could forget about Zoey to become my knight, hahahaha.

Nonetheless, I wanted to talk to you about sometyhing. The thing is, as I am a translator for a living, it is my dream to be able to translate your House of Night books into Spanish so everyone can have access to them. Is it possible?

Here in Mexico, it is very difficult to get them. For example, I am very sad since I would not be able to read "Awakened" for a while. I wish I could have it right now. Nevertheless, here in Mexico you can only get up to book 4 (Untamed) in Spanish.

Thank God, I have been able to get all of the previous 7 books in English, but not without difficulty. Sadly, work doesn´t allow me to travel, and any of my relatives or friends are travelling to US soon. Thus, I won´t be able to get "Awakened" for a while.

I love House of Night, and I don´t want to be the only one. I don´t know if this depends on you, but I wish I could translate your books. It would be an honor to me. Could you at least give me some advice about this? What can I do?

Well, you may think I am crazy and naive. However, I had to try. Dreams are part of life, after all. This is my email account, just in case, freya.elric@gmail.com. Thanks for your attention, anyway, and have an excellent day.

Please, keep writing. Your stories make us, readers, keep dreaming. And what is life without dreams?

Keith Blackwell said...

Oh my goodness PC! I think AWAKENED might have been my favorite book in the series so far! I made a run to WalMart after school yesterday to get it and had to make them unpack it out of the boxes for me! I did not go to sleep until I had it finished! I don't want to spoil anything, but Neferet made me so angry and I knew she would still be evil! (Or as Aphrodite put it once "She's definitely an evil-filled bitch!") Anyway thanks for another great novel and I can hardly wait for DESTINED in November!

Remy said...

Im still waiting for book book to arrive, lets hope it gets here soon, cause i sooo want to find out what happens!
Also I entered for the trip to tulsa, and might i say the questions were too easy >.< lol
Also next book title Destined? Sounds great!
So many books to read, but im pushing them aside for now, to make space of this one!
Have a great day! :D
-Yuri

PC Cast said...

Freya - I don't have anything to do with the translations/translators - that's handled through each foreign publishing house. Were I you, I'd research the job and find out how to apply for it.

Best of luck,
PC

Hayden said...

Dear P.C.:
On page 219 of AWAKENED (which I am on, by the way, and let me tell you, it is AMAZING), it says Jack's last name is Swift. But, in the Yearbook on the House of Night website and in the previous books, his last name is Twist.
Which is correct? Is Swift a typo?
Thanks,
Hayden

Erin said...

I finished Awakened last night and I just COULD NOT put it down. I was really quite teary (and snotty) when some of the deaths happened, and I hate Neferet more than ever. I just want to say THANK YOU for creating characters I have strong feelings about. No other book has ever made me so mad, sad, and happy all in one. (Even my mood ring changed colors as I read.) Thank you for making the most wonderful world I've ever seen inside my head (the groves are really quite pretty in there)!!! You're an awesome writer and you inspire me!!!!
--Erin--

PC Cast said...

Hi Hayden - It's Jack Twist. Swift is a typo. I'll let my publisher know so that it can be corrected in future editions.

Best,
PC

CATY said...

Hi P.C. i just wanted to say that
Awakened was TOTALLY AWESOME.
what happened to jack made me cry cause jack was my favorite charecter. i wouldn't let my mom read the book until i was done with it and i pretty sure that had made my mom mad. well thats all i wanted to say.
bye

Rudi May Hart said...

PC I was on the B&N thanks so much it was so cool hearing form you and Kristin plus mum and dad didn't catch me on my laptop so I got to see the full thing again thank-you for all the inspiration you bring.

Beth said...

I entered the contest. I really hope I win, but if not... the advertisement gave me my travel itinerary for when I do get to OK. I'm looking forward to reading Awakened, I picked it up tonight... sleep or book... sleep or book... book wins.

Thalles Marques said...

I'm going crazy, my dad doesn't wanna gimme some money to buy this book, this booktrailer is the best in the whole series.

Nora said...

CATY said...

Lindsay said...

Dear Ms. Cast~

I'll admit I have not gotten to the book Awakened. However, I have just finished Untamed and am about to start Hunted. I would like to commend both you and your daughter on such a great series!!! Any chance that you may come to Colorado? Because that would be spectacular!!

~Lindsay

nuckushmu said...

I finished Awakened in two days! Loved it so much, Stark is the best and i want to marry him!!!!
I was counting down for the book for almost a year and got my mum to get it for me the day it came out :D
Thank you soooooooo much for being awesome and writing my favourite books!

I <3 HON!

Mariani Mariani Sebastian Mariani, Jackie Awesomeowitz, and Blonde said...

I just finished Awakened like an hour ago and I thought it was AMAZING! I don't want to give any spoilers, but I totally loved the end...like what happened in chapter 21, 22, and 23 with Stevie Rae and Rephaim.. that was soo sweet! The only thing I'm disappointed with is that I have to wait till November to get the next book!

I have one question... When I first saw the cover, I thought it was Kalona... but now after seeing the video for Awakened, I think it's Rephaim. Who is it supposed to be?? Thanks!

hysteria said...

Hello! I was wondering if it is legal to write a book word-for-word on a blog post if you clearly state that all copyright information belongs to the author(s), this work was written by only the author and not the blog owner, etc., etc.??

Chloe said...

Does anyone know if they made a moive out of the House of Night Series? I know if they did make a movie then it would be worldwide but I swear there are movie because on youtube there are trailers for the book but I thought they were the movie because it looked like pieces from the movie (if they had one). If you didn't make a movie P.C, then you should totally make a movie out of the books because the books are AWESOME! If you did make a movie I would watch it over and over again and never get sick of it!
Thanks!

Nora said...

So i just entered the sweepstakes and i think that the whole quiz thing was a little to easy, i mean my sister could have answered that without even reading the book so i thought it could have been a little more harder like some questions from awakened would have been cool!

Nora :)

Nora said...

So excatly how many times can you put your vote for the sweepstakes in??

PC Cast said...

Mariani - yes, it's Rephaim on the cover.

Hysteria - NO. It is NOT legal to copy an author's work and put it on a blog without the author's express permission. FYI: I have not, nor will I ever, give anyone permission to copy my writing and put it on a blog. So if you see my work out there copies - it's there illegally. Stealing is seriously bad Karma.

Chloe - look in the archives of my blog for all HoN movie news. But, no, there is no movie yet. What you're seeing are teasers for the book.

Nora - I didn't write the quiz and I have no idea how many times you can enter.

PC

theofficalbellacullen said...

I was so excited to see the sweepstakes but disapointed when I couldn't enter because I live in Canada.

Jordan Clarke said...

Let me know if you r ever going to do a going to do a book signing in southern Ontario i know like 100 people that would go.
clarkejordan2@gmail.com

ps. just got awakened today looking forward to reading it

CATY said...

In the future will there be a movie?

Chloe said...

Hi again! If you do make a movie, why don't you use the teenagers you used to model for the books/website instead of getting new actors? I have read all the books so far and I love them and I do agree that you should make it into a movie. But I don't see the point in getting other people to act as the characteres that you have already picked as the characters on your terrific website. I think you should use the same teenagers you used in the website/books for the movie (if you are making one!)
Thanks a bunch!
xxoo
Chloe

PC Cast said...

Look in the archives for movie questions/issues. I devote an entire blog post to it.

honfreak96 said...

Selin Beril said...

Dear PC i just love all the characters but if i had to pick it would be STARK for sure <3 Finished Awakened and cant wait for the next book Destined to come out in November! Thank you for the HoN series and hopefully to see more Stark & Zoey :)

Sabine said...

I'm excited about entering the sweepstakes! I only live half an hour from Tulsa, but I just moved up here (got married and transplanted to join my husband). I'm a huge fan of the HoN books and the Goddess series, and hope to get to know Tulsa via the tour! An aspiring author myself working on my first novel, I wondered if you know of any local writing groups that might help a fledgling writer out? Love you work and hope to meet you and your daughter someday. Thought you might appreciate that my mother is helping me write my book as well. Brainstorming makes for great mother-daughter bonding. :) Happy New Year, thank you for all the great adventures and for making me feel a kinship with the city I moved to. When my fiancé told me he lived by Tulsa I was excited to see all the places from the books. :)

Anna said...

I just finished reading "Awakened", it was great!! I am anxiously awaiting "Destined" in November :)

Riddhi said...

I was on the blog eariler this week and someone said something happened on page 63 the next day my friend showed me the book and right before I looked at page 63 we were talking about how much we loved the character why PC why??????

KaiteMercer said...

Selin Beril said...

Hi PC,
Thank you for all the books they all are really great :) I just finished Awakened and I would just like to say that i hope Stark&Zoey will stay together and nothing bad will happen to their relationship (please!!) :)
Thank you very much again for all of them love you and Kristin and i hope one day i get to go to Tulsa :)

Emily said...

I knew it was Rephaim on the cover!! :D
Sorry lol my cousin said to me that she promised it was Kalona. I just needed proof. :D :p

angelinamp said...

I just wanted to let you know how much I love your books. I just finished reading Awakened and I can't wait until the next one. Growing up I hated reading, and even now I do so much reading for grad school that just the thought of reading used to make me sick. During summer break from college a few years ago I decided to start reading for fun. My cousin gave me the first five HoN books and told me I had to read them. I went through them all in a week, and it made me love to read for fun. I went through 21 books that summer. I just wanted to thank you and your daughter for giving me a place to escape from reality. I am also really close to my mom so it's really nice to see we aren't the only ones out there. :)

redoneee said...

PC Cast said...

I'm not choosing winners, my publisher is. I really don't have anything to do with that part of it. You'll have to check the HoN website for details. Good luck!

redoneee said...

PC, i really really love your house of night books:)
they are amazing and exciting and 110% full of awesomeness! i hope i win the sweepstakes so i can meet you. you are one of my favorite authors!!

Thalles Marques said...

I didn't even sleep right this night, all cause my father had let me buy Awakened, but sadly, I'll just read on february 22, cause my English teacher will buy for me in the US.
But I'm sooooooooo glad, and so anxious to read this one. It must be so great.
