Research...research...research...


Oooh! I took a conceal and carry class today! Check me out on the firing range! Gotta get used to that Colt 38...

All in research for the HoN book after DESTINED. Don't know the name of it, but I know my cowboy is packing a gun. (Well, he's not MY cowboy - he's Lenobia's cowboy. Ooops, can't tell you anything else!)

Back to writing,
PC

That must have been so much fun, a new kind of stress relief :) I can't wait to read Destined the UK cover is so nice and different to other book covers out there.

PC Cast said...

It was fun!

PunkPryncess said...

Oh that looks really fun! :D

Hmm.. another introduction to a prof's story. NICE!

First Time COUPONER said...

I have recently started reading the House of Night series, and I am so hooked, I found them at a little bookstore; and come to find out your daughter works there I was able to meet her and probably made a big dork out of myself because I didnt know what to say to her but I wanted to talk haha. Anyway I have blown through your books so fast and I think they are just wonderful... I am so happy to hear that there are more books to come. :) (sorry about the random rambling.. I normally do not gush like this about books. Thats why I am just so excited I have found a series I like)

shaun said...

Anonymous said...

Do you know when the destined preview is going on the HoN website? Can't wait!!

Kasia25ja said...

Oh that look very fun.PC go to firing range! WOW

I can't wait Destined.The book is promises to be veary interesting!

ShannonBMamaO3 said...

Hi P.C. That's actually a really Hot picture! All woman should be that strong!

David said...

Who do you picture when at the shooting range.

PC Cast said...

David - I picture bad guys.

Anonymous - I don't know the schedule for releasing the teasers, but I will post them here as well.

maca said...

Even though I'm against having guns, I've always thought that shooting like that must be sooo empowering! (is that the right way to say it?) and I do think women in general need to be able to defend themselves. And also, I do think woman with guns are kind of sexy... if you leave all the violence behind. But anyway, cant wait to meet your cowboy character! Question: do you think once DESTINED is published that it will be right away in Amazon so people from different countries can buy it?? Really, I've never been sooo anxious for a book to be released.
Anyway, happy researching and writing!

Krys_Henry said...

You are such a role model to me. For as long as I can remember I've been making up stories, and telling them to all of my friends lol. I'm trying to write a novel, which I'm taking a break from to read your blog! You're a huge inspiration, thank you so much.

P.S. I can NOT wait to read Destined!

PC Cast said...

Maca - obviously you're not an American - we heart us some guns. Yep, DESTINED will be available on Amazon Oct 25th. Enjoy!

Ang from Oz said...

Ohhh love the boots!

I gave bookstore the number you posted, waiting to hear back from Rosemary about whether she has had any luck.

Will let you know when I know something.

XOX

Kasia25ja said...

Oooh and this cowboy is positive or negative charaktrer?

PC Cast said...

Yea Ang! Let me know (and tell Rosemary I said "hi"!).

Kasia - I can't give away any plot spoilers!

Ang from Oz said...

PC, so no luck with the numbers you gave me. Rosemary said it needs to be a 13 digit ISBN#. I don't know if you have the same # as what we do here.

PC Cast said...

Ang - I'll regroup and contact my editor. This just shouldn't be that hard! (You know I'll send you a copy anyway...) XXXOOO

Kasia25ja said...

Oh, yes sorry I forgott. I think that cowboy is positive charakter because you write "Lenobia's cowboy". She's positive wel cowboy is positive too :)

I CAN'T wait Destined

ChristinaCarol said...

Is Kristin coming out with a series?? I loved her story in Immortal: Love Stories with a Bite! :)

PC Cast said...

Bethynh - all interview requests need to go through my publicist: Rachel.Ekstrom@stmartins.com

Christina - Kristin is working on her first standalone novel. It's set in the world from the short story she wrote in the HarperTeen anthology, Kisses From Hell. Thanks for asking! I'll pass your comment along to her - it'll mean a lot to her.

PC

Ang from Oz said...

Yeah I know, but all the best things in life are hard right lol! Let me know how you go.

Would you really send me one? That would be awesome! (Still have my copy of Brighids Quest you sent me all those years ago!)

Spring started here in OZ today, got to love that!

PC Cast said...

Hey Ang - do you still have my email address? Email me and I'll give you the info to pass along to Rosemary. (Of course I'll send you a comic!)

Kasia25ja said...

HEJ I live in Poland. Premiere Destinde in USA is on 25th October but when in Poland? I must read Destined in this year is my destniny. Do somebody can send me e-mail with Destined if you can buy the booky? PC can you do it?

b.walker530 said...

My best friend, Jesse, and I could talk about these books for days! I'm so ready for Destined I can devour these books in one sitting, they're just that amazing.
QUESTION: Will we ever get to read the POVs of the Twins?

PC Cast said...

Kasia - your local bookstore will know the release date for DESTINED in your country.

b.walker - yes! You do get Shaunee's point of view in DESTINED.

Kasia25ja said...

Really? I don't know, thank you very much.
and...

I read your blog i i've seen that you add chapter 1 Tempted and my question is: Do you ever add one chapter Destined.

sooli said...

You write very well! I feel that I live with in the book .. It is especially a person who reminds me a lot about myself (heheee) and it is Stevie Ray! :) Can you post information about when they look for someone for this role? :) Sorry about this translation, I'm from Norway and use google translate (Yayy!) I'm just wondering, is there much Rephaim in Destined? hope it:) hugs from Norway <3:)

iloveHON ;) said...

that looks so fun, I once had a go on my neighbours gun (of course he was there to help, I'm not that much of a rebel....) I can't wait for DESTINED, I really want the US cover, so I'm going to have to sweet talk my pal that is over there to send me a copy ;D
happy shooting lol

Zoe-Scarlett said...

I love the cow girl boots! ;)

Valentina said...

Hi, P.C.! I love this pic! Anyway, in Destined we'll discover something more about Shaunee and Erin? :)

Maike said...

Hey pc, hope you're fine!
I've got a question to the comics. to be honest,i don't like comics very much. will I miss something important from the story if I don't read them? And where will they be set in the plot (after the first book or later?)
greets from germany!

Maike

Zoe-Scarlett said...

Will the HoN comic be available on amazon? I can wait to get it but everytime I look there's just a bunch of Bat Man stuff that comes up.

Aurélie said...

Hi there! And merry meet ;)
I've come across your books while searching for something to read during my holidays, and... wow! They're just so un-put-down-able! It's been two months since I started reading Marked... And I'm now on my way to reading Awakened :p
I wanted to ask you something. I'm not sure where to put my question or even whether it's worth asking, but anyway, here I go : I'm a young Belgian translator (French speaking, at that)... I don't know if you're interested in reaching French speaking people, or even if you already have a translator, but would you do me the honor of translating your books into French? Should you be interested and willing to answer my request, here's my Facebook page: http://facebook.com/aurelie.kustermans
Aurélie.
PS: Even if your answer is a categoric no, I'll keep reading your books ;)

PC Cast said...

Zoe-Scarlett - THANKS! They should be available from Amazon, but it's probably easiest to go the to Dark Horse site or your local comic book store to order.

Aurelie - HoN is already published in France. I have nothing to do with hiring translators. Publishing houses take care of that.

Maike - yes, there will be new stories in the comic versions. No, they're not after the current books right now. We're starting between MARKED and BETRAYED.

Zoe-Scarlett said...

Thanks for answering so quickly and I'll try drak horse and I'll try and find a comic book store (my brother should know), also, I LOVE cowboys bbut I love Stark more so please don't make him better than Stark =[

Géraldine said...

Hello PC,

To add to your comment to Aurélie, because I'm french too (but from France), yes I saw that the series is available in a translated version, although I think it only concerns the first books for the moment(but I'm not sure anyway since I read in english and bought them through Amazon).
Now I've just finished Betrayed! So damn good book!! You made me cry! I hope that the Stevie Rae "issue" is about to be better (finger crossed!).

Aurélie said...

Wow thanks for answering so quickly! And thanks Géraldine too, for the extra-info! I didn't see it in French in Belgium so I was wondering. And nothing ventured, nothing gained ;) And it's always better to translate something you enjoyed... And God knows I really enjoy your books, P.C., they're so "darn" good ;)Anyway, forget about my question. I'll just keep enjoying reading.
I know I'll finish Awakened before Destined will be in stores, and I already can't wait!
I heart you... or at least your writing :D

Géraldine said...

You're welcome Aurélie! I see you're ahead of me in the series!!
I heart PC too, both as a woman, and a writer!
Ans you should read her Partholon series too (Divine by Mistake and the other books of the series: the info is available on her web site). They're my favorite (but it's not young adult).

So let's send big congrats to PC from Europe!!

PC Cast said...

Awww, that's nice Geraldine. Thank you!

PC

Géraldine said...

You're most welcome!

Aurélie said...

Yes as Géraldine said, big congrats from Europe!
I think I'll start with Partholon just after finishing Awakened, while waiting for Destined. I already saw them in the library, in fact at first I hesitated between HoN and these ones.
I really heart your writing PC, your books make me escape the real world for a while. From the first line I read to the time I force myself to close the book (and believe me, it's hard to put it down), I'm no longer here, I'm at the HoN. So keep going, we heart you here too! :D

Marii rp said...

I KNEW that cowboy was goin to end up with lenobia!!! :)

Sarah_is_awsome said...

Hi PC i have a question im a hardcore frech girl but is aphrodite n lenobia french cause they say lots of french word in the book.

Marii rp said...

I've a question aswell: can vampires have children? I don't know why they wouldnt but you never mention it, anyway I'm just wondering, and also, I noticed you never mention neferet's car Skylar.
Greets from Spain!

PC Cast said...

Sarah - Lenobia was born in France, but Aphrodite is not French. Americans sprinkle French words in their sayings whether we're French or not...

Marii - No, my vamps cannot have children. Their metabolism is too high and their bodies are too hot. Skylar is mentioned in AWAKENED.

Marii rp said...

Allright thanks :)
