Fun with Gena Showalter!

So, as may of you guys know, I have several friends who are also authors. (Waving to Kresley, Jana, Jeri, Mel, Cindy, Merline...) Well, out of the author friend herd, my fellow Okie, Gena Showalter, and I are like peas and carrots. Naturally when she asked if I'd be a part of scavenger hunt to celebrate the release of her latest YA, UNRAVELED, I said, "No. Post on your own dang blog." Just kidding! What follows is info about the book and the scavenger hunt. Have fun!


Gena Showalter’s YA series, Intertwined, featuring paranormal magnet Aden Stone continues this September with UNRAVELED. To celebrate her new release, Gena and her author BFFs are hosting a 4-day scavenger hunt on their blogs; including this one. Three grand prize winners will each win a $100 Visa gift card, plus Gena’s giving away signed copies of UNRAVELED to five lucky runner-ups! All you have to do is find all eight letters, unscramble them and email the word to Contests(AT)KnightAgency.net . Today, I’ve got my letter front and center! To get the skinny on where the other letters are hiding in the great internet universe, click here for a contest road map and rules.

Participating UNRAVELED hunt blogs include superstar authors Rachel Caine, Marley Gibson, Rosemary Clement-Moore and Tina Ferraro. This contest runs from Monday, August 30th to Thursday, September 2nd. All entries must be received by Monday, September 6th at midnight ET. Happy Hunting!

So, are you behind the curve and wondering what UNRAVELED is all about? ;-) Read on to learn more about Aden:

For once, sixteen-year-old Aden Stone has everything he’s ever wanted:

A home.


The girl of his dreams.

Too bad he’s going to die... Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he’s supposed to be crowned Vampire King – while still a human! Well, kind of.

With four – oops, three now — human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been “different” himself. These souls can time travel, raise the dead, possess another’s mind, and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.

The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.

Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn’t about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life.

Kristin's release date!

Ooooh! Today the anthology of YA stories that Kristin's leading, KISSES FROM HELL, is being released! I'm so proud of the piece she has in it, ABOVE. It's a completely new take on the vampire mythos. I think her idea is fresh and her writing is unique and interesting. Check it out and you'll see how different our voices are.

And, yes, I'm very pleased to announce that Kristin is currently working on the first book in her own series based on the world and characters from ABOVE.

Happy reading!

Well, I'm home in Tulsa (the view out of my front door) working like crazy on AWAKENED! Yes, it'll be released January 4th. No, I can't write any faster - just thinking about my due date makes me want to run shrieking down that lane!

I don't have any firm movie update, though I am excited about the direction my producer is taking and hope to have good news for all of you soon soon soon!

No (again) I don't have casting call news. No (again) I don't have a clue when a movie will be released. Uh, it's not filmed yet. Yes (again) I'll post news here as I get it. If I haven't posted the answers to your movie questions it's either: 1) because I don't know them, or 2) have already answered them in a previous post.

I should have some fun FLEDGLING HANDBOOK sneak peeks for you soon! Oh, and I do know it'll be released in the UK/Australia/New Zealand in October, too!

UK folks - sadly, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to tour in the next couple months like I was hoping to. I really have to focus on getting AWAKENED finished. You want me to finish it, right? Right? Sorry, I'm really missing the Highlands, especially 'cause it was 107 degrees Fahrenheit today in Tulsa. NO JOKE. It's too hot to breathe...
