SHADE excerpt & 1st SHADE-y interview

The website changeover is complete! Doesn't it look sweet?

No, your eyes aren't broken. The site looks the same, but underneath it works so much better. I can now change the wording of a page or update a link in about a minute instead of half an hour.

One unfortunate side effect to the change is that some links created prior to this weekend will no longer work. It's because the content-management system doesn't create an html file but rather directs to a


Never mind.

And now that the evolution is complete, I can show you the entire first chapter of Shade, previously only accessible to my newsletter subscribers and the owners of Christopher Pike's Thirst 2 compendium. Enjoy.

Also, my first SHADE-y interview can be found at YA Book Queen. Find out where I came up with Aura's name, which young dude in the book is my favorite, and two cool things I can do to impress people at parties.

YA Book Queen will have an ARC giveaway for Shade tomorrow, so go show her the love!
