My first blog post

Me and my dog

Me and my dog

This is my very first blog entry. I meant to start one months ago, but now I have news worthy of a premiere. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt just bought the sequel to my first novel, A CERTAIN SLANT OF LIGHT. Well, it’s kind of a sequel and kind of a prequel, so, a sprequel? It will be called UNDER THE LIGHT and will be about Jenny and Billy, why they left their bodies, where their spirits went during the story of Helen and James, what it was like coming back into their bodies and not remembering what they had said or done for those missing weeks, and what it’s like figuring out that other people lived their lives for them. Not to give away too much, but it’s a love story. I’ve only written the first chapter so far. I’ll keep you informed.

I’ll also try to keep my website updated (thank you website genius Brian Batson.) Please email me through my website whenever you wish. I try to answer all fan emails within the first 24 hours. If you don’t get an answer, try again. Once in a while my Spam program gets a bit too big for its britches. And sometimes my email is just a little haunted. (I know, it sounds like a joke, but it’s not.) In future weeks, I hope to write about: Supernatural Tea Parties, my dog (can’t help it), writing insights, travel, books that inspire me, and the like.

Until next time, be well, my friends.

      Thank you. Maybe when I blog about those STPs (supernatural tea parties) I’ll start a new hip trend. Hip and yet old fashioned, like steampunk? =D

    I just finished reading A Certain Slant of Light (in one night I might add, couldn’t put it down) and loved it! I was searching around online about it to see if there were any discussion groups about what people thought happened with Jenny and Billy and I came upon this blog. I am so excited that there will be another book about these characters! I can’t wait for it to come out!!!ā˜ŗ
