Whew! I finally turned in Lust for Life
(WVMP Book 4) yesterday. Now it's time to go back and finish "Let It Bleed," the WVMP novella that I had to tragically abandon late last year after I realized the ending needed to be changed (due to events in Lust for Life
). There will definitely be news on that within the next couple of months. Obviously some form of "Let It Bleed" in its entirety will be available before Lust for Life
comes out in October.
But that actually isn't what this post is about! Consider it a bonus news item.
Tomorrow at 10:30am eastern, Zachary
(collectively known as the SHADEboys or ZOGAN) will air their fourth episode of "Zach and Logan in the MORN-ing!", their Twitter-chat homage to Troy and Abed from the best show ever made, Community
, which is currently on hiatus.
Transcripts to the first three episodes can be found on the SHADEboys tumblr:
Episode 3: Ginger Clark
, literary agent at Curtis Brown, Ltd.
Their first published author guest will be Jodi Meadows
, whose brilliant debut fantasy Incarnate
just came out last week. I was privileged to read Incarnate
last summer because Jodi thought potential readers might have actually heard of me. I was blown away--so blown away I said this:
One word: Breathtaking. More words: Heart-melting. Soul-feeding. Mind-blowing. INCARNATE captured all of me and won't let go.
Usually I'm a little more circumspect with cover quotes, so as not to sound too fangirly/over-the-top/dorkish. I tend to use things like commas and compound sentences. But I couldn't help myself with Incarnate. It was just that beautiful.
Though the settings are completely different, because of the prominence of music and the emotionally wrenching storyline, I think it's more like the Shade series than any other book I've ever blurbed. So if you're reading this, and you like Shade, you want this book.
And I'm giving one away! As I mentioned, the SHADEboys are interviewing Jodi tomorrow morning. To enter the giveaway, simply ask Jodi a question, either during the chat
(hashtag #ZOGANam, 10:30am to 11:30ish EST
--they usually "open the phones" for questions around 11am), or here in the comments. The giveaway is open to international entries
, and the deadline for entry is the end of the chat. (NOTE: due to time constraints, I can't guarantee that every question will be asked, but the boys will do their best!)
EDITED TO ADD: Jodi may be bringing her ferret Todd to the chat, if he's feeling extroverted tomorrow morning.
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD: The Winner of the copy of Incarnate was Jen R! Thanks to everyone who asked questions before the chat. You can read the transcript of the chat with Jodi on the SHADEboys' tumblr.
See you then!
