HE HAS A NAME!

He has a name! Please welcome Tiberius to the Cast household. As you can see, he is beautiful AND fearless (and he is 'helping' me write along with my Warrior, who is baffled by how brave Tiberius is). Oh, and for those of you worried about the shepherd and the cat - Badger (my German Shedder) is absolutely not animal aggressive. Eat a person - yep! Eat a dog or cat - no way! Longtime fans may wonder where my Scottie, Cammyman is...well, he doesn't like cats. My giant male, Patchy Poo the Pud, taught him to keep his distance, and even though Patches has been frolicking with the Goddess for four years, Cammyman remembers and prefers to help me write from the other side of my treaddesk! Back to working on my new book! XXXOOO p.s. As I posted this the theme for Star Trek stared playing on my Pandora station! A definite sign Tiberius is the right name!

SIGNED BOOKS IN THE UK!

Well guys, on my way home from Amsterdam I popped over to London to meet with my lovely publishing team (waving at Little, Brown/Atom Books), and to do some research for my new trilogy. Whilst enjoying fab London and the countryside I stopped in several bookstores and signed stock! Sooooo, you can find books signed by me at the following stores: Waterstones on Oxford, Piccadilly, and Trafalgar Square, as well as in the basement of AWESOME Selfridges (who doesn't love Mr. Selfridge!). Also while I was on my way to the Avebury Henge (where I was researching - and having a pint at the Red Lion) I signed books at a wonderful little bookstore in the beautiful village of Malborough called The White Horse Bookshop. That's all I had time for, and I am now on my way home. As always, I love me some UK, and had a great time in London! Hopefully I'll return soon on tour for my new trilogy! XXXOOO PC

Finally chosen by a lovely cat!

A cat finally chose me! I've been catless for several years since the death of the totally awesome Patchy Poo the Pud, who died gallantly at fifteen years old battling a bobcat out at my ranch. I've been waiting and waiting, and FINALLY! Please meet my new boy. He hasn't told me his name yet, but I'll be listening and let you guys know!

Movies ruin books? Nah!

With all the HoN movie discussions I feel compelled to write this post. Movies are movies. Books are books. A movie can do not one damn thing to a book. Nadda. Zip. Nothing. Book readers envision their own wonderful, miraculous, intricate versions of what a writer brings to life through her/his words. Writers weave their own kind of magick, casting a spell on their readers and taking them to worlds the authors create. No producer, screenwriter, director, or actor can touch the book they are attempting to adapt to an utterly different medium whereby only one version of what millions (in the case of HoN more than twenty million - THANK YOU HON FANS!) of different readers have been "seeing" in their imaginations. No movie can ruin the Nerd Herd we love! Or our batshit crazy Neferet! Or yummy Kalona, Darius, Rephaim (happy sigh), Travis and his Bonnie, Nala, Dutchess, Skylar, Grandma Redbird, etc. They will always live in your imaginations just as you envisioned them as you were reading the books. On film you may or may not enjoy a different version of the House of Night, but IT WILL BE DIFFERENT THAN WHAT EACH OF YOU IMAGINED IN YOUR MINDS. That's okay! That's an adventure! So, the series has been optioned for film by Samuel Hadida at Davis Films. I had my choice of producers, and chose Samuel because of his vision and enthusiasm for HoN, and for his desire to please my fans. The screenwriter is the utterly fabulous Marc Haimes. I have collaborated with Marc on the script for the first movie and it is awesomesauce. Everything else is up to Mr. Hadida. If you want to influence how, when, and if the movie(s) are made, tell him by posting on his Facebook page! Thank you for your passion for the House of Night. Kristin Cast and I heart our fans and wish you the brightest of blessings and love...always love! XXXOOOPC
