Checking in!


Hi Guys! Just checking in...sorry I've been so quiet, but I'm hiding at my house on Grand Cayman (Cammy loves "his" beach!) writing a paranormal romance novella that will be published in a duology with my good friend Gena Showalter (more info on title and pub date to come), and I'm doing the Master Cleanse (google it if you don't know about it - I'm really enjoying it) - so my energy has been super focused here.

I probably won't have any more movie news until early in 2012. I know my producer is working hard on the set of the latest Resident Evil movie, and I don't imagine he'll be free until after the holidays. Don't worry - as I find out casting and filming info I'll post it.

LENOBIA'S VOW will be released January 31st, and we're having a giant release party at The Book Place in Broken Arrow, OK. I'll give you guys more info about that as we get closer to the date.

HIDDEN will be the next big book in the HoN series, and it will be released in October of 2012. I'll be launching into it soon!

The comics are awesome! The next one will be released December 7th. Hope you're enjoying them as much as I am. My adapter, Kent Dalian, and I have been brainstorming more HoN comics and I'll have news about that soon. He is for sure adapting my retelling of Beauty and the Beast, GODDESS OF THE ROSE, to comic/graphic novel format for Dark Horse. I know my Goddess Summoning readers will love seeing that story come to life! I don't have release dates for the first of those comics yet, but stay tuned...

Happy reading everyone!

I can't wait to read Hidden. The books just keep getting better and better. They are so addictive.

HoNlvr said...

I don't think I could possibly wait until Oct 2012. But I guess I have to :'( I would like to tell you two, P.C. and Kristen, that I love these books. I will tell you that I have found that these are better than the Twilight Saga. Hope the movies are better and don't cut out to much from the story's. I would love to personally talk with you. My email is chrisheck91@gmail.com Please get ahold of.
Sincerely Yours,
Chris

Pink Umbrella said...

Hello,
you are an amazing writer, each time I pick up a book I can't seem to put it down. I am in love with your goddess novels each of them are amazing. I hope that soon you will come up with another goddess book because I just can't live with the ones you have out now I need more.... PLEASE
p.s.- your awesome.

Kirstee97 said...

Are the comics released in the UK? because I would LOVE to read Goddess of the rose comic-style, as well as HON :)

PC Cast said...

Pink Umbrella - I love my Goddess Summoning Books, too! I do have ideas for a few more books in that genre, but I need to finish the HoN story first.

Kirstee - Yes, all of the comics are available in the UK. Check with any comic store. If they don't carry them, they can order them for you.

WolfDreamer25 said...

I loved the House of Night series since Marked, and I cannot wait until Hidden. It will be exciting to see what happens next in the series!

Marii rp said...

Hidden! I like the name ;) hope u having fun, and I don't know I I'll be able to wait till October! I haven't finished destined yet because their publishing it chapter by chapter here so I wanted to know how many it has, I read till 26th

GĂ©raldine said...

Hello PC!

So many good news for 2012!
I just read the passage in Destined where Bonnie and Travis are introduced, and I really enjoyed it!

It seems you're having a great time in Grand Cayman (in France it's not very cold, but the last few days were all foggy..). But why are doing the Master Cleanse? You don't need it ;)

PC Cast said...

Marii - I wasn't aware of any country publishing chapter by chapter. Where are you?

Geraldine - thank you for the lovely compliment! The Master Cleanse isn't about weight loss for me; it's about getting rid of toxins in my body and staying as healthy as possible. I'm on day 7 of 10 right now and feel AMAZING!

Marii rp said...

From Spain but the book isn't out yet, someone is translating it on the Internet and theiy upload one or two per day

David said...

Just curious, but do you have any plans to do a novella on Neferet. As it would be cool to know how or when she started to listen to the whispers that took her from the path of Nix.

Trina and Sabrina said...

Hi, P.C. we are two girls from Norway that loves youre books! We made a blog for the books and we hoped that you and Kristin would check it out or something (A) We love you !

PC Cast said...

Marii - that "someone" is stealing my book, chapter by chapter. By downloading it you're contributing to the theft.

Davie - yes! Neferet's story will be the novella released after Lenobia's Vow. I'm also planning a novella to tell Kalona's story about how he fell.

drcullenfans said...

any way i can convince you to write the Kalona novella before the Neferet novella? ;D

PC Cast said...

drcullenfans - Ha! No, sorry, the Kalona novella needs to release between books 11 and 12. Gotta do Neferet first.

drcullenfans said...

i can't even convince you with some awesomesauce on top?

PC Cast said...

drcullenfan - No, but you did make me laugh!

Lacey Lou said...

Hey pc I'm happy to hear that Hidden is coming out but it's to far away! Lol. How long after Lenobia's vow will the Neferet's story come out? You and Kristin are great! Keep it up your books rock! I even got my boyfriend into them! -L

Lacey Lou said...

Oh and I hope they stop posting your book online and stealing it. That's just not right and it's disrespecting you! I'm just throwing my 2 cents in! Lol. - L

Sabrina said...

i cant wait that long PC!!! October is too far away! I adore your books, I can practically quote them! It's really terrible.
I am extremely excited for both Neferet and Kalona's novellas. Thanks for writing about both of them.
I think it would be neat to try this Master Cleanse. Sounds like you recommend :)
Hope you're having fun!!!

J.Stew said...

Hello PC! Can't Wait for October! and for more Movie news! I was just wondering. I'm a recent Film Production graduate and I wanted to know if there will be any job possibilities to work on this project. I think it would be an amazing experience. :)

PC Cast said...

J. Stew - I would hope with filming in Tulsa there would be lots of local job opportunities. Stay tuned to the blog for more info.

Valentina said...

Hi, P.C.! Who would you like to see Zoey ends up with? :) Personally, my favourite is Stark. Oh, by the way, I think I love your dog! :D

Marii rp said...

Pc im rally sorry, I'm only 13 and really bad at computers and technology, please don't get mad at me, you're actually my idol because I want to be a writer :(

Diana said...

I live in Sapulpa, Ok. I have lived here all my life. I LOVE the House of night series! Since some of the books were based here in Tulsa, Ok. I think you should do some of the filming here too: )

Trista Siegel said...

Hey P.C.! Another thing has come across the page and I wanted to see if you could confirm it or not.

People are coming at me saying I need to update the info with Neferet's novella because there is a name now. The only problem is their only source is wikipedia and other unreliable sites. Apparently amazon has it listed too.

So, is it possible if you can tell me if it is true or not that the novella bout Neferet is called Neferet's Curse? I won't post titles on the page until it has been announced by you guys or St. Martin's and since none of you have as far as I know of, I just want to be 100% positive that it is before I post it.

Hope to hear from you soon! I hope you are enjoying your cleanse.

PC Cast said...

Valentina - Zoey isn't old enough to figure out who she's going to end up with. What I want for her is to be an intelligent, interesting young woman who makes more good choices than bad ones.

Marii - I'm not mad at you. I'm educating you. If you're downloading novels free from the internet it's stealing.

Diana - I have a ranch outside Sapulpa! Love it! That ridge I describe where Kalona and his sons are hiding - that's the ridge right behind my ranch. XO

Hi Trista! Yes, the title is NEFERET'S CURSE. Thanks for being careful and considerate and checking with me.

Ger said...

Hi PC! I'm fron Venezuela (and I have all your books, both in english and spanish). I have a doubt. In amazon, two days before Neferet's Curse are available to preorder, and I do it. But a few days later the date of the publication changed (first is set to be released July 17 of 2012). I don't are going to tell the new date of the publication, because maybe you're trying to give us a surprise. But then the Neferet's Novella is between the books 10 and 11, or not? I'm so excited with that novella. My favourite character is Neferet, and a book of her is like the heaven for me. I'm a bit disapointed for the change in the date, but I think is the better. I think that Hidden is based on Neferet because shes going to hide from the High Council. I will discover in the book.

Greetings from Venezuelaa, and sorry for my english (you're a teacher).

Iris said...

ithink taylor lautor would be good to play as Raphim because if Raphim is always shirtless then Taylor would be good actor to play Raphim AND CANT WAIT FOR THE NEW BOOK TO COME ALREADY I READ DESTINED 3 TIMES ALREADY LOL :D

PC Cast said...

Ger - Neferet's Curse will not be released in July. The release date is being moved back so it can come out between books 10 and 11. You were correct! I do not have a release date for it yet, though.

Sarah L said...

I feel so left out right now I haven't even started reading Destined yet to busy with Uni work :( can't wait to read it and can't wait for hidden to be realeased, it's a good title!
Also I can't wait for Kalona's story about how he fell that is gonna be awesome. I love your HON series P.C and Kristen your ideas are amazing and keep you hooked the whole way through each book xoxo

Destinedtobe said...

Hi there, PC!
Ohmygod I'm so thrilled to have found this blog :D I'm a loyal belgian reader of the HoN series. Just finished destined and I got curious about how it would continue! Can't wait until Lenobia's vow in january (october 2012 is so far away :()
I'm looking forward to a filmversion of the HoN series! Will it come in European cinemas? I surely hope so!
Anyway, is there a small chance that you will tour in Europe? That would be so awesome.
Enjoy your holidays(?)

PS: I apoligize for my -not so perfect- English. But I'm learning!

Trina and Sabrina said...

hey, i was wondering the people on the yearbook on houseofnightseries.com, are those the ones that is playing in movie ?

Love you and youre books!
take care<3

Trina & Sabrina ;D

stephanie said...

Can we buy the books on amazon?

aditi said...

Hi, I really heart House of Night books. Completed all in a week's readathon!
Waiting for Hidden...:)
But will be kind of sad to have it end...

------- said...

Hello!
I love your HoN series, and have been reading them since they first came out! I am so excited to read the next installment. I love how supportive and embracing you guys are of the GLBT community. But...come on! HoN needs a lesbian main character. It is a matriarchal society full of strong women, after all ;) Realistically, we would be all over the place. Unless you are holding out on us, and Professor Lenobia is gay as I always suspected. I said that if you hadn't outed her by Awakened, I was going to lodge a formal complaint ;)
Keep writing!

stephanie said...

*comic books sorry

Iris said...

i have a question in the book awakend stevie rae tells her mom about the guy that save her and her mom said she would like to meet him to thank him. my question is will raphim meet stevie raes mother?

PC Cast said...

-------: Lenobia isn't gay. In Dragon's Oath the High Priestess and her Consort are lesbians - and not because I needed to fill a box. They're gay because that's how the characters came to me. Here's the deal: I don't care about gender preference. I let my characters decide who they love and desire. That's the way it will always be.

Iris - I dunno. Probably. It'll depend upon how much crazy world saving goes on in the next three books. Lately Stevie Rae's been too busy to take her bird/boyfriend home to meet momma...

Iris said...

yeah true she has alot of shxt going on lately well then cant wait to read the next book already lol even if is half a year away

Iris said...

i think lenobia should be with the guy that is working with her he is sweet and nice with the horses they would be a cute couple :)

anshika said...

omg!! i am so excited for HIDDEN...
i love HoN series..!!and it gets more exciting with every book..it's my second favourite series(harry potter series is my favorite)..
hope the book launches soon..!!<3
n m waiting 4 d HoN movies!!!

Ang from Oz said...

I haven't got my comic yet.
Not sure whether Rosemary sorted anything out about them or not.

Grand Cayman looks divine!

ChristinaCarol said...

I'm currently reading Destined, and the part where Lenobia is riding Bonnie sort of reminded me of Shannon riding Epi in the Partholon books. The trust that they both establish on their first real ride reminded me of it. They sorta remind me of each other :) Love HoN and Partholon.

Can't wait Lenobia's Vow and Hidden! ♥

drcullenfans said...

i saw on wikipedia that they posted a summary for HIDDEN from barnes and noble... is this the real deal or no? cuz if it is i am even more excited for Hidden!

PC Cast said...

I haven't even begun writing HIDDEN yet. When will y'all learn Wikipedia is total BS?

drcullenfans said...

well it said it was from barnes and noble.. so i wasn't sure

Nadine-C said...

I just finished Goddess of rose! it was amazing but for it to come to graphic novel as well!!
I am literally on to of the world! Lenobia's Vow as well literally aamzing!
So excited!
Your an amazing writter and I can imagine everything as if i was watching it on TV!
<3

anshika said...

hell.! i can't wait so longer..i'm getting impatient!!!
but i'll take what i can get!
so have you decided about the movies yet?i mean..about the actors/actresses??

ChristinaCarol said...

I just finished DESTINED and omg wow!!! A good/sad wow, you had me bawling!! I loved it though! Amazing job!
I can't wait for HIDDEN!
Thank god I have Lenobia's Vow coming out next month! :)

Christina Carol ♥

Trista Siegel said...

Hey P.C.! It's Trista again.

The past week people have posted links of places that you can read your books for free/download them for free. Where do I report them?

I have deleted them but they keep popping up so I figure I my as well figure out how to report them instead.

Ger said...

Check out the preview of the second comic in tfaw. Amazing. I hope Neferet will appear in the comic Pc. T.T

Animallover! said...

P.C. I love ALL your house of Night novels, and can't wait to read Awakened, and Destined.

Ger said...

Usually the pages of downloads have report links for autors rights Trista.

PC Cast said...

Hi Trista - sorry, I've been swamped with my Harlequin deadline and Kristin's wedding. You can report online book thefts to my publishing team at: Brittney.Kleinfelter@stmartins.com

hellokitty84 said...

I have a question for the P.C Cast. I noticed that the 8th book "awakened" seems a bit different in writing style and that the characters seem a bit different too, I was wonder if maybe Kristin Cast had more influence in the 8th book than she did in the previous 7? Not to say that the 8th book is bad because I think they are all awesome books, I was just wondering if it's just me or if there is something there.

Thanks, Kat.

Leonora said...

Hi P.C.!
I read Destined and loved it so much. I especially loved with a particular new girl who becomes marked. I won't spoil anything else though. I'm sorry to hear that people try to steal your books. I mean have they ever heard the words "stealing is wrong?" Majorly pisses me off. Since there are stores such as iTunes where you can buy the books for a reasonable price. I admit to have pirated books before. But when I started to research what I was contributing to, I stopped doing it. For me, the realisation didn't hit me at first. That it is stealing. Which is so obvious I should have thought about it. Now I just wanna strangle those who are distributing media uploads for fre without the copyright holder's approval. I think people need to hear that they are taking someone's well-earned income for a creation to stop.
I have a little question: when is Kristin's wedding due? Oh, and will she still be a Cast?
Ok, so that was two question. :)

Ger said...

In the oficial page of house of night now is available the first excerpt of Lenobia´s vow... ooh

PC Cast said...

hellokitty - nope, I write all of the books. Kristin serves as my teen voice editor and comments on the manuscripts after I finish them. The HoN world expanded and characters matured in BURNED. My writing style wasn't different - the setting and conflicts were.

Leonora - Kristin's getting married the middle of the month. She'll still write under Kristin Cast.

Ger said...

Pc, a sypnosis of Neferet´s curse is available in amazon, but i don´t post it because i don´t now if is true or not, but apparently it is.

hellokitty84 said...

I finished the 8th book just now and it was fantastic, I should have put into consideration that the characters would evolve due to events that had transpired in the 7th book. You're a wonderful author and I can't wait to see the upcoming movie!

Diana said...

Thank you for making such amazing books! You and your Daughter make people from Oklahoma feel proud!: )

PC Cast said...

Ger - the Amazon synopsis is just the generic catalog copy. I'm not writing that book until this spring/summer. I don't even know the exact plot yet.

Leonora said...

Same thing with L. J. Smith's 10th Night World installment called Strange Fate. Though that one has been pushed back for more than ten years, the synopsis seems to be generated as well.

P.C.: What happened with Kristin's own novel? Is she still writing it?
And last, something I thought about considering Shaylin. Don't read further if you haven't read DESTINED.
Why couldn't she stay blind? It would have been so much cooler if she was a marked blind vampyre! I mean, she could of course still have the powers she got. Yet her sight could be more of an inner sight, where flashes of colors representing a certain person are seen within her own mind. But clear enough so as not to think it was imagined.

That was the only thing about DESTINED that I thought could have been better. Don't get me wrong. I still think Shaylin is an amazing character with amazing traits and powers! I just thought that would have been so cool! The rest of the book was wonderful!!!

Hound Hafling said...

thanks for the reply to my letter P.C. !!! what are your specific thoughts on my drawing of Steavie-rae? she's my fav!

Gayboy said...

was Kalona meant to be good from the beginning or is that more recent?

Alessandra Costa Almeida said...

Good Night, Phyllis.
I am Brazilian. And I have a question about The House of Night Series:

How many volumes there will be at The House Of Night Series? Twelve?

Leonora said...

I think it was pretty much from the beginning. It doesn't have to be that way, but I always expected him to become good somehow. I have been waiting for that since Burned. Although I sort of hade a hunch i both haunted and Tempted that there might be something good within him.

Peter said...

This blog sounds quite interesting.

Alessandra Costa Almeida said...

Good Night,
the series will have the house of night how many volumes?

Kirsten said...

i think instead of only putting pictures of the main characters , you should do others also on the website. i would like to see what neferet looked like, dallas, rephiam, and all those people :]

Trista Siegel said...

Hey P.C.,

I have a question, I'm writing an article about you and Street Cats and I remember you selling foreign books with the proceeds going to the high school and Street Cats. You posted the amount of proceeds for the High School but not for Street Cats. Was there a specific amount that was donated to Street Cats? Have you done any other charity work with Street Cats?

So, maybe it's two questions.

Thank you!

maisha said...

hey,this is maisha from somerset-(highbridge)
just wanted to say that your hose of night sseries is so amazing, i absoulutely love it like mad!
love how zoey always has boy trobles and how her life always has interesting and cool twists!
i read the books over and over ...and trust,it gets more nourishing every time!
thanks for taking the time to read this comment,and cant wait to read more books written by the daring duo!!!!!!!!

Leonna Anne said...

Let the muse go free! And the Master Cleanse is wicked awesome - you feel great afterwards!
Got a quick questions for ya. When reading the Partholon series, there are a few instances where the characters recite vows of love. They go 'I agree to protect you from fire even if the sun should fall, from water even if the sea should rage and from earth even if it should shake in tumult. And I will honor your name as if it were my own."
Did you write these vows? If not, where do they come from? I would like to write my own vows for my wedding someday and these fit perfectly!

leanna xx said...

hey !
i cant wait to hidden comes out
and please don't kill nala she remind me of my cat lol i love house of night and don't want it to ever end and cannot wait till movie ! Does any one know if hidden comes out in October in the UK and could you please come to England (Hertfordshire) for a book signing when you get time ! much love house of night
you such a talented author and have such a unique story line
totally shocked when thantos accepted kalona to be the warrior and stevie-rae and rephaim are so cool
plus so upset for the twins
much love house of night xx

jackie22 said...

Just found your blog.. can't wait to hear about casting! I have a good friend in LA that would love to audition!

Ger said...

Leanna in amazon.co.uk is now avaiable preorder hidden.

PC Cast said...

Leonora - re: Shaylin - she is how she came to me, and she didn't come to me as staying blind. Kristin is still writing.

Gayboy - Kalona = good? Perhaps...

Allesandra - there will be 12 House of Night books and four novellas. At least that's what I have planned right now.

Trista - I more than matched the money I donated to Will Rogers with my Street Cats donation. I've been a longtime supporter of Street Cats.

Leonna - Wow, I wrote that book soooo long ago, but if I remember correctly I based the handfast vows on an ancient oath and then just made up the rest of it.

Leonora said...

PC. I understand. Shaylin is what she came to be, and that's good! And I think the true sight idea was really good. I think it is so cool that she was blind from the beginning. And Erik's reaction wasn't exactly tactful! However, what I want you to know is that I think all the characters are, if not amazing in Neferet's case, but at least fascinating. While the good guys have so much dept in their personalities, which I really like. I like to see that the twins don't live in symbiosis anymore.
What I especially like is that you don't portray all the characters in black or white. Kalona has different sides, both dark and light. I know this is a good versus evil kind of story. But none of the characters are stereotypical examples of good versus evil characters.
Even though Zoey represents goodness, she still has darker sides. Just like Kalona has a brightness about him!
Sorry for repeating myself. That was not my intension.
But these are the reflections on the books I have had!

By the way, I read The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley and noticed how the goddess worship and tattoos are very similar to the Avalon books. Have you read the whole series? I think it begins with The Forest House, and that The Mists of Avalon is the latest and longest installment.
I read The Mists in a week on my summer break about eight years ago. I don't know how many pages it is in print. But the audio version was aproximattely 52 hours. I read them in Swedish. But I think I'm gonna collect them on Audible or iTunes pretty soon.
Ok, this became a pretty long comment.

Happy hollidays!
Leonora

Gayboy said...

What in thew world is that supposed to mean, Mrs. Cast? "Perhaps..." Now you have me wondering...

Kafiero989 said...

I can't wait until October 2012. I'm going to have to re-read all the books again and buy Marked and Hunted. They're the only books I'm missing, and right now, I wish I didn't read all the books in two nights. Keep it up! I hope you two aren't ending the series anytime soon! These books are my closest friends.

Kafiero989 said...

Um, this is goingto sound silly, but ever since I read your books for the first time, I think I actually believe in Nyx, and I wish that Vamp fledglings would be real. I think I actually dreamed about being Zoey one time, and I'm a guy... Now I always say: "Goddess!" Instead of saying "God." I think I belong in a mental institution.

Kafiero989 said...

I love the HoN series! I especially think Aphrodite was based on my sister. Hmm... Well, anyway, I just wanted to tell you guys that these books are the reason the world has good things. The series is my Nutella.

Teritopsy said...

Aww, I don't want to wait till October! But I guess I'll have to force myself to learn some patience ;) And I really want to read Lenobia's Vow. Thank God, at least that's coming this month ;) And, Thank you P.C.Cast! You're books are great! Keep on writing!! And I think I'm going to start the Master Cleanse program too! Oh, And hope you're having a relaxing and refreshing time at Grand Canyon!

@Kafiero989 Lol! That's such a funny comparison! I love it! :D And Nutella is awesome!

Teritopsy said...

Oops! I just realized that I wrote "canyon" instead of "Cayman" lol, oops. :S

Kate said...

a comic version of Goddess of the Rose . My favourite book so far. My friend Diannah ( a french teacher ) and I ( an art teacher ) love this one . We are using the Goddess series to get us through an English winter-its working but our men friends husbands are tired of pretending to be horned !! kate in Stalybridge Cheshire uk

kristen said...

I absolutely LOVE these books. Its hard to wait till hidden comes out, but totally worth the wait. I am reading the novellas at the moment and love the fact that you wrote them. It gives more insight to the professors and their lives. I wish more writers would do the same. Do you know how many HON books you will write in the series? You are an amazing author. Can't wait to read more :-)

Blackwolf18 said...
