R.I.P.

"What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by. I mean I've left schools and places I didn't even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don't care if it's a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse."
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

I can't believe he died... :/
One of those people you think are going to live forever, you know?

Susanne said...

It is just so sad...
It never accured to me that he would die someday;(

I am quite late on checking up on your blog but wel.. better late than never. I am absolutely thrilled to see the covers for Dark Flame and Radiance!!

I feel a bit weird by the DF's cover cuz of the color and how there's a girl behind EVER!! Is that Drina?!? But the more I look at it, the more attracted I am. July 6th? Wow, that is good timing for me. Not too close and not too far. It's summer when I love reading most. :D I can imagine the gorgeous DF being on my bookshelf right now.

The cover for Radiance is quite simple but all in the name of perfection. Totally cool. I won't be able to get it.. Cuz I am investing in EVER, lol. So I will convince my school library to order Radiance. I work at the library so it shouldn't be hard to recommend stuff. When in Fall? Summary for Radiance is intriguing me!! If the library fails to get it... I'll use all of my money if I have too. The plot is so good.

Are you still working on Book #5?

Lucia- I know!

Susanne- Me too . . .

Alexa- The girl behind Ever is Haven! And yes, I'm still working on Book #5, making good progress now . . .

It's Haven?? OMG. But she looks.. almost beautiful.. I can't see that clear. (Not that I thought Haven wasn't nice looking, just thought she'd look a lit ..eccentric..) Oh that's right.. it has to be hers cuz.. Drina's hair is red/orange? That makes more sense. I thought it was Drina and I thought Drina would be resurrected. It makes more sense now..

I hope.. I'll get to see a cover with Damen on it..

I came here from Tinkerbell's blog, just to say I'm very glad your book is going to be published in Portugal. I was about to buy it in English, because I've been curious about it for a few months.
Wish you the best sucess in our country, even though it's a small market.
