Hey all,

First up, thanks so much for all your enthusiasm for Sourcebooks free gift offer if you order Scorched! I hope all of you had a chance to take advantage--it's such a cool deal. I kind of want to pre-order a copy of my own book, just so I can get a charm. :)

I'm actually at the airport right now, waiting for my flight back to Austin. I had a fabulous week in the midwest, covering

Hey all,

Want to help me countdown the days till Scorched's release date? Want to win prizes, score exclusive sneak peeks, and talk dragons with fellow readers? I've opened up a new Facebook group, TEAM DRAGON where we're going to do just that!



Together we can take over the world!

We're adding members now and taking ideas and will start the big push come August! I hope you will join us there

Hey all,

As many of you probably already know, I am obsessed with Game of Thrones (the books AND the show!) I'm also releasing Scorched, my own dragon book in September. So, of course, when it came to picking out my cosplay for Dragon Con this year, I thought no further than the Mother of Dragons herself, the Khaleesi,  Daenerys Stormborn.

In fact, I actually have two costumes for the con. The

The photo above was from San Diego Comic Con back in 2007(?) when I was promoting Dorchester's new Shomi line. (Oh, how things have changed!) It was an amazing, somewhat daunting adventure and I've always wanted to go back. I've since gone to the New York Comic Con several times and done the Chicago Comic Con and the Austin Comic Con, but really, the ultimate Comic Con--the real deal--is San

Hey all,

So here I am - out of Texas for the next couple weeks - and hanging out in North Conway, New Hampshire with my dad and stepmom. While they're getting quality time with their granddaughter, I'm holed up in my remote home office, writing Shattered. (Scorched 2) I know, it's crazy, Scorched #1 is not even out yet and I'm like halfway through writing the second book. Weird how that works.

Hey all,

So sad to wake up to Twitter reports of Cory Monteith's death. I got a chance to meet him at an event a couple years ago and did an interview with him for the television show I was working for back then. He was so playful, so goofy and fun-loving. So full of life. The event was some silly advertisement for Marshals or TJ Maxx - can't remember - but he didn't care. He grinned for all the

Hey guys,

So as you know, I've been going to a gazillion events over the last few months. And there have been a LOT of free books to take home. I tried to be good -- really I did!  But I ended up with just TOO MANY BOOKS and my bookcases are overflowing.

SO... I've decided to start doing some giveaways leading up to the launch of SCORCHED! Some of the books will be autographed by the authors
