And the video:
This video comes courtesy of the wonderful Scholastic Book Fair People who spent an entire day at my house filming--mostly chasing the light as we'd just moved in and I had no window coverings, and not much in the way of furniture either for that matter! Anyway, it's for RADIANCE, which is a featured Scholastic Book Fair Pick!

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Hello, Alyson!
My name is Luciana, I'm from Brazil... and now I'm your newest fan.
I read your two first books in just two days... and I loved them.
I never thought that your books would catch my attention this way.
Now I realized that I really need to read the other books. Well... thanks! You make me dream again.
Kisses from Brazil,
Luciana. ;o))

Alyson Noel said...

Kristina - Thanks so much! Hope to announce some additional travel soon!

Marigcr - Thanks--so glad you like them!

Luciana - Thank you so much--I really appreciate your support! :)

Hi Alyson!
I'm glad to read your answer. I thought u'll never do it. ;o))

Luciana. ;o))

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Luciana,

The Immortals Series was inspired by grief. A few years ago I lost three people I loved in five months. Experiencing that sort of intense grief and fear got me thinking a lot about life and death, mortality and immortality. And since I’ve been interested in all things paranormal since I was a kid, Ever and Damen’s story seemed like the perfect vehicle to explore all of those themes.

I understand...
And if u have the possibility of to drink the imortal juice... would you?!
Sometimes I stop and think about life. It's like a bird, a full collor one, and then sometimes is just gray.
Hey, where u live, u commemorate Carnaval, like here in Brazil?! It's funny.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Luciana. ;o))
