Interesting. Yes. Provocative.


If anyone knows where "Interesting. Yes. Provocative" comes from, I'll give you a cookie. But since nobody probably does, I'll just tell you. It's from Chris Farley and David Spade. They did it a few times on SNL, and I think once in either Tommy Boy or Black Sheep. Not sure which one, but who the hell cares, they're the same movie.

Speaking of SNL, did anyone see the Katy Perry episode? Was anyone else creepily impressed by her Florence and the Machine impression? Holy balls, lady. Not bad. But I still only know you as Mrs. Russell Brand.

Anyway, it's been a good day here at the house of serial killers and hair-pulling cats. How good a day? Well, very soon I should be able to share some news. And part of that news will allow me to use a title quote that I've really been wanting to use, also from SNL. It's been awhile since I've had news to sit on. Huh. It's sort of uncomfortable.

Anyway, it shouldn't be long. In the meantime, I've started to think about GIRL OF NIGHTMARES. Feels like ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD just came out, and I haven't wanted to talk about Girl of Nightmares much, but I suppose it's time. One thing that should probably be cleared up is that Anna Dressed in Blood was not the start of a series exactly. It was the start of a duology. So Girl of Nightmares is the end of Cas and Anna's story.

Another thing is that ARCs should be coming in a few months, and I want to do weird contests. Because I love it when people are weird. For example, there were a few cool chicks on Twitter who wrote a poem review about ANNA, and considered dressing as minstrels and singing it for early copies. Or making me sing it. I can't remember exactly, but it sounded awesome.

I finally reached the end of the Song of Ice and Fire series, and now shall suffer with most of the world waiting for THE WINDS OF WINTER. Now I'm diving back into Kristen Simmons' ARTICLE 5. And ooh! I got word from the fan-fricken-tastic Suzanne Young that I may be able to read A WANT SO WICKED early. Hee hee! Haw haw! WHEE! Ahem. Don't judge me. I'm getting a cold and I may have over Nyquil-ed.

I always forget how bad Nyquil really tastes. Wow. But it works! One day later, I'm up and running again.

As far as the singing, that would be amazing! However, I'm going to email you with a different proposition...

Can't wait.
So I'm super excited to hear your news AND to get a hold of an ARC for Girl of Nightmares. I'm a woman on a mission for that one. :)

And I'm hoping/praying/wishing your news is that you signed a deal for a zillion more books to come. OR that Anna Dressed in Blood is heading to the big screen. Scratch that, I want both to be your big news!

Re: Can't wait.
Speaking of ARCs, when can we expect to see early peeks of THE NIGHTMARE AFFAIR? I have to know when to stalk my editor.

Also, I feel like my news will be a letdown now, ha ha! Seriously though, thank you for the authorly support! You are awesome.

Re: Can't wait.
Not just authorial support. Total fan support too. Anna was my favorite book of 2011:) and I'm sure news will still be awesome.

So as for mine, I'm still waiting in my edit letter. Supposed to be here any day. Ah the wait!

Love, love, love.
Hi! I loved Anna Dressed in Blood and can't wait to try whatever you think up for an ARC of Girl of Nightmares. I've got a book blog over at parnassusreads.com and will be reviewing Anna Dressed in Blood very soon. I can't wait to read the conclusion of Cas and Anna's story, and look forward to your new project.

Thanks!

Hey Veronica!

So sorry about the late reply. Apparently Livejournal has stopped notifying me of comments. Boo. Anyway I'm so glad you liked Anna! I'll have to check out parnassureads :)
