A big leap forward in the life of Nightshade this week - the first mailing of Advanced Review Copies (ARCs or Galleys) arrived in the mailboxes of book bloggers! I'm now biting my nails in anticipation of their responses, and I'm so excited that Calla is out in the wild.

I thought I'd do a roundup of the links that have been popping up.

Kay Cassidy gave a Nightshade shout out in her interview on Not Enough Bookshelves. Kay's book The Cinderella Society is on shelves today!!

Book Reviews by Jess discussed the cover, as did The Bookologist and Tynga's Reviews and The Fiction Enthusiast. And Raila just stopped by to tell me about her cover post! Thanks Raila - I'm thrilled Nightshade will be pubbed in Brazil too - that was my first foreign sale :)

Nightshade got mentions in several "In My Mailbox" posts:

The Undercover Book Lover's post made my week. (Thanks Reggie!!)

And I was so excited to see Nightshade in the hands of The Frenetic Reader and Fantastic Book Review and GreenBeanTeenQueen (don't you love that name?) and Abby(the)Librarian (Happy Library Workers Day Abby!!!) and Ramblings of a Teenage Bookworm (man all these bloggers have cool site names) and Book Chic.

The Story Siren and Sarah's Random Musings both vlog about it!

And it's even showing up in Spanish :) at Book Eater and Besos de un Angel and Eternamente en Tiniebla!

Thank you so much for all the enthusiasm - I'm thrilled!

If you posted a Nightshade-related blog and I missed it - it was totally inadvertent, let me know and I'd be happy to link it here.

The next chance to win a signed Nightshade ARC will be a contest on Monday, April 19 - this contest will only be 24 hours long, so don't forget to stop by!


  1. Definitely coming back for the contest as I wasn't one of the lucky bloggers :( Glad you're giving us another chance though...if it's Haiku related, I might just stand a chance! LOL

  2. They're such lucky bloggers! :( I've discussed its cover on my COVER LOVE post last weekend, though I don't have a copy. I just saw it already has a publisher in BRAZIL! IT IS SO AMAZING! Congrats! I'm very excited to read your book. :-)

  3. Lynsey - It's not Haiku related this time around, but it will still be fun

    Raila - That's awesome. I will link up your post ;)

    Thanks, Tricia!!

  4. Lucky, Lucky bloggers! Happy Read guys!
    I'll definitely be back for the 19th! Thanks for giving us another go:)

  5. I'll for sure be back on the 19th! I'll be looking forward to see what the contest will be about.
    I also have to tell you that Nightshade is by far my favorite cover this year. It's absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to read it.

  6. I'll be back here for sure on Monday, thanks for giving some of the smaller blogs another chance! Ill be posting a "Waiting on a Wednesday" this Wednesday featuring Nightshade. This is my #1 "can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it" book. I want it more than Linger! Hehe, I love all things werewolf. But thanks again!

  7. Wow - Thanks, Adriana. I couldn't be happier with the cover :)

    Thanks Miss Havoc - I love werewoves too (obviously, lol) Thanks for the WoW I'll watch for it!

  8. Andrea - I was blessed to win one of these through the Fire Petal auction and I must say I loved it!!! I could not put it down. Calla (Love the nameplay by way) is a great MC. Thank you so much for writing a wonderful story... ;o) My sister is dying to get her hands on my copy...hmmm I might could leverage this one... lol *wink*

  9. Haha, funny thing is I was going to do Nightshade for my Fancy-ful Designs meme. :P I'll definitely stop by for the contest! :D

  10. Courtney - Thanks so much for bidding on Nightshade and I'm thrilled you loved it! I was delighted to be part of the auction. You should definitely get chocolate or something from your sis in exchange for the book! :)

    Thanks, Caroline!

    Ky - That's great, what a cool meme; I'll keep an eye out for it ;)

  11. Wow!! Nightshade in Spanish and the rights bought by Norma. Fantastic!!! I am not surprised though, just super excited!
