He Talks to Angels

So last night I celebrated the awesome BLUE MOON news (see below!) by drinking champagne, having dinner, and then attending a James Van Praagh event with some friends. It was an amazing night--partly because we got an incredibly accurate and personal message from the beyond, but also because at the end of the night, just after I had him sign my copy of UNFINISHED BUSINESS his latest New York Times Best Selling book, I gave him a signed copy of EVERMORE (my own NYT best selling book!), since I thanked him in the acknowledgments (I'd taken a 3 day seminar of his about a year ago-and was blown away!) and wanted  a chance to thank him again in person. It was a really cool moment and I just love being able to do things like that, which is why the dedication and acknowledgments pages are always especially fun to write!

And while we're on the subject of giving thanks, check these out:






These were done by a reader named Haley, and, honestly, I'm just gobsmacked by how awesome they are! So huge glittery thanks to Haley for making such beautiful IMMORTALS art!

Also, I just wanted to shout out yet another thanks to all of YOU--because aside from debuting at #1 on the NYT list, and #14 on the USA Today list, I just learned that BLUE MOON also landed at #22 on the NCIBA list! So, once again:

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!


And don't forget that tomorrow, Friday July 17th at 6:00 PM I'll be signing copies of BLUE MOON along with other titles of mine at:

Barnes & Noble
791 S. Main St. #100
Orange, CA 92868

And I hope to see YOU there!!

Have a great day everyone!

Congrats on making the NCIBA list for Blue Moon. When I read Blue Moon, I noticed that if you take away the "o" in Ouroboros, it spells Uroboros which is the name of a CD for the japanese rock band Dir en grey. Strange.

Congrats on another bestselling novel. Didn't I say this series was something special? Perhaps I should jion the psychic friends network.

Good luck on the signing, I'm sure your signing hand is going to ache like the dickens by the time it's over.

Hey RKCharron- Thanks so much--and yeah, that art work is great!

Waving to Keri--Hope your summer is going well!

Hey Kajikitsune- Hmmm, wonder if that's on purpose??

Hey JT- I think joining the psychic network is a good way to go!! All the best on your new career!

Congrats! And I think the artwork is great! I wish I could go to that event but sadly I live almost as far from Cali as I can while still being in the US. I live in northern NY, which really sucks. All my favorite authors live in like Cali and Utah and all those states in the way west.

Hey Alissa- Aw, wish you could be there too! But thanks so much for swinging by here!
