First, in case you haven't seen it yet, my incomparable critique partner, Andrea Cremer (Nightshade, Philomel), is running an epic, blow-out contest for some amazing books (including both of mine, both of hers, four others mentioned in this post, and tons more). It's a Twitter contest, but you can find deets on her blog here. And, my good friend Kody Keplinger (The DUFF, Little Brown) is giving away a copy of Personal Demons in her 20th birthday celebration, so go wish her a happy birthday and enter to win. Also, don't forget to enter to win a signed ARC of Original Sin and a signed copy of Rachel Hawkin's Demons Glass here. Just an aside: I've discovered tote bags are popular. 200 of you entered my First Contest-for-no-reason last week, when a signed Rachel Hawkins tote was up for grabs, but not so many this week in the Second Contest-for-no-reason for a signed Rachel Hawkins book. LOL ;p
So, I'm curious: What, if anything, did you download/buy yesterday? With the embargo on City of Fallen Angels, there were lots of people drooling over it's release and it took over Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as the big YA Twitter topic yesterday. Were you one that bought/read it yesterday? Did you (like me) buy and read something else?
Now on to our Original Sin teaser.
Yesterday we met Matt, Frannie's new guardian angel, and I mentioned he's not a big fan of Luc's. Here is another bit from their first exchange.
#OriginalSin p13 Matt to Luc: “I knew you were going to be useless. Why Gabriel thought you’d be any help at all, I’ll never understand.” He fans the pages and turns his glare back on me. “You’re going to slip back into your old ways. I just know it. Demons don’t change.”
Tomorrow and Friday we get a few more snippets from this exchange. Once again, please feel free to leave spoiler-free questions in the comment feed and I promise to answer them. =)
