HoN Candles are awesomesauce!

Longtime fans will know from interviews (and probably from talking to me at signings!) that one of the ways I create positive energy in my writing space is with candles. My ex-students (WAVING TO ALL MY EX-KIDS!) can tell you I always had a candle lit in my classroom, even when The Administration at SIHS (ugh) didn't appreciate my attempt to create positive energy in a high school classroom. So you can understand how excited I am to announce that TODAY on Amazon the first of the House of Night candle collection is available! I have partnered with a good friend of mine, a local business owner in Tulsa, and we are creating magick with candles! The first five available are beautiful ritual pillars! Each has a symbolic design inspired by the HoN and drawn by my good friend and tattoo artist, Aura Dalian. (Aura is also illustrating KALONA'S FALL!) The pillars are infused with essential oils chosen by me to represent the five elements, air, fire, water, earth, and spirit. I hope you heart them as much as I do! And stay tuned, there will be more awesome HoN inspired candles to come! p.s. I've signed bookplates and included them with each of the sets! Oooooh!

Cayman house open for your vacay! Oooooh!

As longtime fans know, I consider Grand Cayman Island a second home. Kristin and I have been going there for twenty years - back when we had to save our pennies to share a tiny hotel room for 4 days and eat sandwiches from Hurley's (Cayman grocery store). As the years passed, I purchased a lovely home on the beach in Cayman, and since then have spent lots of time there. I've been trying to remember how many books I finished while I was looking out at the turquoise Caribbean (and watching Cammy trying to swim to Jamaica), and I think the number is four! Anyway, I've been so busy that I don't get to Cayman as much as I would like to, so recently I decided to open my amazing home as a vacation rental. You guys can check it out through the Facebook link,, as well as through the AIRBNB link: If any of y'all go there for your holiday, post pictures! And enjoy - it's a paradise! Big wave to my Cayman friends at Books And Books! XXXOOO PC
