Two interviews and book giveaways

I think as of this morning, I'm finally caught up on sleep! Yay! I need the brain clarity, since Bring on the Night is due in a week (technically next Saturday), and I have a lot of plot work to do. Little things, like what the hell does the villain want?

Also, for the first time I am finding it a major inconvenience that the vampires can't go out during the day. The timeline for Bring on the Night is so tight, and events happen so quickly, it's hard to wait for sunset to get stuff done. But I'll work it out eventually; somehow I always do. (Of course, with every book comes the fear that this time the plot will kick my ass instead of the other way around.)

Anyway, today two blogs are interviewing me (luckily with mostly different questions), and each of them are giving away a signed copy of any of my books. Winner gets to choose from my vast library of published work. (OK, maybe not that vast.)

At the first one, Smexy Books asks you to answer the question, "Kick Ass Chick or TSTL?" Since TSTL stands for Too Stupid to Live, it seems kinda like a "Cake or Death?" question to me. But whatever. Just go leave a comment to enter.

Then over at Star-Crossed Romance, you can find out Ciara's all-time favorite song (it might surprise you) and a little bit more about my YA series. Leave a comment to enter to win any of my books, signed and personalized by me!

I might drop in next week if I have any major news (well, I have major news, but I'm sort of saving it for an awards round-up post next month), but otherwise I'll be trying to finish Bring on the Night. Wish me luck and much caffeine!

Great interview!

I was actually happy to see that there would be a conclusion to the WVMP series. As much as I will miss all the characters and their adventures, it's better than writing "filler" books just to keep it going. That's happening to a few of the books I'm reading now.

Good luck with the deadline & don't forget to treat yourself to an occasional shower :-)(re: your twitter dispatch)

Thanks, everyone! Karen, I'm so glad you feel that way about series ending. I'm of the same mind. It's nice to know that the characters will meet some sort of conclusive ending, and because WVMP is a lighter sort of tale, we know it will be a happy one! :-)

Hope you've figured everything out and are feeling great about it. :-)

Don't forget to congratulate yourself on hitting your deadline--I'm chugging towards one myself...

Take care!
