The Shameless Side of the Moon

It's just barely still Saturday here on the west coast, so I feel justified in slipping this Shameless Saturday post in under the wire!  And it's a good thing I did because we're got some awesome stuff this week!

Whenever I have news, I usually save it for the end of the post.  But this time, I'm being and putting it first.  Why?  Well (a) it's pretty awesome and (b) it involves our very own Nancy Holder.  Because I've got two shiny new blurbs for TEN!


"Gretchen McNeil's TEN is my new number one! I jumped at every creaking floorboard in my house and on the page. This is sure to be a teen thriller classic!" (Nancy Holder, Bram Stoker Award winning author of THE SCREAMING SEASON)

"TEN is a real page turner! Gretchen McNeil knows how to plot a thriller: Her setup is flawless and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat." (Christopher Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the THIRST series and REMEMBER ME)

I know, right?

And on the heels of these blurbs, I found out TEN will be published in Spain by Maeva. It was an awesome week!!!!

Speaking of Nancy Holder,participated in one of the thirty events held in thirty days about Edgar Allan Poe. Together with an acting team from Read Out Loud, she talked about Poe and his connection to horror. She and the team also passed out copies of Poe books for World Book Night. Also, Blonde Ambition, a hardback collection that includes stories from her Domino Lady comic books, went on sale. The cover is pretty awesometastic.

Nancy's not the only one with a new book out. Sybil Nelson's fifth Priscilla the Great book is out May 1st. That's next week!!!!  WOO HOO!!!!

Plus, Lena Coakley's paperback of WITCHLANDERS will be out this fall and Scholastic has licensed it for their fall book club.

And last but not least, Kate Milford's Kickstarter campaign we mentioned two weeks ago?  Yeah, it got a massive write up in Publisher's Weekly.  Go, Kate! Go!

That's it. "It."  Hahaha.  So much good news this week!  *dances*
