*UPDATE: SALE WILL END MARCH 15TH!*
We've reached the $500 mark on our sale of my foreign book copies, and all of that will go to Will Rogers High School and their English Department! Yea! Thank you so much!
I still have books left, so what I've decided to do is to donate the rest of the proceeds to the fabulous Tulsa organization, Street Cats! (Yes, it is a real cat rescue organization, but it's not run by nuns.) You can learn more about them through their website, www.streetcatstulsa.org.
So here's a list of the books I have left. It's probably easiest if you email my PA, Kat, through The Assistant Agency, if you'd like to purchase one: firstname.lastname@example.org
(REMEMBER, THIS LIST WILL CHANGE AS THE BOOKS SELL.)
Oh, yeah, Kristin and I have signed all of the books.

In an earlier post Christina reminded me about this book. I heart me some BenBella Books (a lovely small press). Leah Wilson (editor) and I have worked together on several project, so when she came to me with a proposal to do a Smart Pop (popular culture) book on the mythos of the House of Night I was thrilled to say yes! Actually, I asked to include illustrations to be created for it by a good friend who is part of Clan Wallace, Alan Torrence. AND I said I wanted to write one of the essays, too! The book is awesome, and will be released in June. You can find out more info at http://www.smartpopbooks.com/book/nyx-in-the-house-of-night
Here's some more info:
Nyx in the House of Night
Mythology, Folklore, and Religion in the PC and Kristin Cast Vampyre Series
Edited by P.C. Cast
With more than 10 million copies sold internationally, and 7 million copies in print in North America alone, P.C. and Kristin Cast’s House of Night series, featuring fledgling teenage vampyre Zoey Redbird and her friends at the Oklahoma House of Night vampyre boarding school, is more than just another vampire series.
A big part of the reason is its strong mythological underpinnings. From Nyx, the goddess worshipped by the series vampyres, to the Cherokee legend that drives the plot, the House of Night series is infused with elements from multiple mythos and religious traditions to create a new, modern mythology all its own.
Edited by P.C. Cast, Nyx in the House of Night—a 2-color illustrated guide to the House of Night series—brings these rich mythological influences to life, providing the real-world stories behind the series and insight into the way those stories are used to create the captivating story of Zoey and the House of Night.
• Wiccan ritual
• The original story of Erebus and Nyx
• Cherokee mythology
• The historical significance of tattoos
• And more
The book also includes an original introduction and chapter on Scottish folklore by P.C. Cast herself.

Ooooh! Check out the cover of DRAGON'S OATH! Its release date is July 12th of this year. It's the first of the House of Night back story novellas. Here's the back copy:
Before Zoey is Marked and arrives at the House of Night… before she rises in power to confront utter darkness, and the House of Night is divided… there’s Dragon’s Oath, the thrilling story behind the House of Night's formidable fencing instructor and warrior – the love that will transform him, and the mercy that will come back to haunt him…
I'm writing it right now, and NO I won't answer any questions about it (mostly because the plot unfolds as I'm writing, so I don't know the answers yet!).

As many of you know, the House of Night has been translated into a bunch of languages (over 30). Well, every time the book is released in a foreign country, I get copies of it. Sometimes I just get one or two - and sometimes I get a bunch. So, what's happened is that they've been piling up in my office. I've donated to our local libraries and our Oklahoma Equality Center, but still I have a bunch of books.
Long story short - what I've decided to do is to put my excess foreign copies up for sale, and donate the proceeds to the English department of Will Rogers High School. Some of the books are already up on ebay (follow this link and click into store to find them: Http://myworld.ebay.com/theassistantagency11). You can also purchase them by emailing The Assistant Agency at email@example.com and inquiring about the language and title you'd like, and then check on shipping. Yes - we will ship outside the US, but you'll have to pay for it.
There are also some books for sale through Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&me=A2CV7ENNSAYQ6G
Yes, Kristin and I will sign every copy. Below is a list of the languages currently available. This will change as they sell. To ask about a specific title, just email The Assistant Agency, or go to the ebay link.
Yea! Let's support Will Rogers High School!
**Hey guys, a quick additional note: Tulsa is in the middle of a nasty bit of weather. I'm at my ranch, which is outside the city. As soon as I can safely get into Tulsa and get these books signed they'll be put in the mail. Actually, I'm going to instruct my PA to make weekly trips to the post office after I've signed them all. So be a little patient, especially if we get more snow on Wednesday as they're forecasting...ugh...
p.s. Oh, there are also limited copies of my Partholon books available in foreign copies, too.
HoN copies available in the following languages:
AUDIO CD GERMAN
MY PA ALSO JUST DISCOVERED A BOX OF GODDESS OF THE SEA AND OLD COPIES OF DIVINE BY BLOOD, BOTH IN ENGLISH. WE'LL BE PUTTING THOSE UP FOR SALE ON EBAY, TOO.
