Look what I received! Woohoo! Darkness Rises ARCs! And I've already begun sending them out to reviewers. If you would like one yourself, I'll be giving some away in contests on Facebook, Goodreads, and in my Street Team between now and its release on October 1st, so keep an eye out for them. The Goodreads contests I'll announce here on my blog. But my Facebook contests tend to be spontaneous and only last for a day or two, so I may not have a chance to announce those here.
The German books are like a cool paperback/hardback combination. They're paperback, but they're larger than the paperbacks here in the U.S. and the front and back covers both open out to show an expanded front cover image.
The German books are also the first books to include my picture inside the back cover. :-)
It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! To celebrate the goodies that came in the mail, I thought I would give you another quote from Darkness Rises. Today's selection is a narrative quote that reveals Krysta's (the heroine's) first impression of Roland (the hero of Darkness Dawns, Book 1):
He just seemed menacing. Like he could slit your throat, then sit down, prop his feet on your corpse, and eat a sandwich.
Poor Roland. :-) Sometimes I think he's as misunderstood as Bastien.
Have a wonderful weekend!
