Riddle Me This

There's a very attractive young man living alone in a creepy mansion in Vail, Colorado. Loud, inexplicable crashes keep waking him up at 5 a.m.

Who's he gonna call? (Hint: The Ghostbusters are unavailable)

You might have noticed around the interwebz that in the six weeks leading up to NIGHTSHADE's release Shay has joined us in the world. He's just moved to his uncle's mansion, Rowan Estate, and things are getting a little strange there.

You can check out his blog posts and talk with him on Facebook. You can also watch his web series on You Tube.
Yesterday, with the help of online friends, Shay solved a puzzle that was keeping him out of the locked library. He hasn't yet gone in - his uncle told him to stay out of that room - but he's thinking about it.

As Shay learns more about Rowan Estate and its history, there will be many more puzzles for him to solve. And you can help him do that.

If you're interested in being part of the story (and yes, that means the official prequel!) send an email to and you might receive a very special present in the mail. Please note: the mailings are limited in number, so sending an email does not guarantee you'll receive the present, but it gets you in the running.

Even if you don't receive one of the limited edition mailings you can still be part of the mystery by helping Shay out online.

The secrets of Shay Doran's Shadow Days are becoming more and more sinister. Can you help him solve the puzzles before it's too late?


  1. Awwww snap! I just emailed and now I have my fingers crossed :-)

  2. Wow! Can international readers get the very special present too? :P

  3. Hey Andrea,

    I almost finished NIGHTSHADE ARC and I think Shay is awesome. I want to know more about his story.

    How can we help him with his adventures? (I mean international readers.) Can we sign for the mail suprises?

  4. Hi Guys!

    Thanks for all the enthusiasm. Since this is tied to Penguin, my US publisher, I'm afraid only domestic mailings can go out. However, international readers can still participate online and help Shay solve puzzles and be part of the prequel :)

  5. Oops!! Sorry guys - in the first post I missed part of the email address. It should be

    If you sent an email to the first address, please resend the message. So sorry about that!
