First, a note from Gena: I'm often asked how I see Cole. I struggled to answer...until the amazing Book Rock Betty found this picture. So: this. This is how I see Cole.



And now, without further ado...




A Note From Cole

WatermeLoonie Hey Gena!
I just finished Through the Zombie Glass and AUGH IT WAS TOO AMAZING! I stayed up till three in the night just to finish it. I loved it! But I was wondering.... Is this series just a trilogy? I really hope not. :( And what are you going to do for the next books title?!?! You probably shouldn't answer that. ;)

Roman Zolanski Hi Gena, Thanks for the add. Really. I just finished the three Intertwined novels that are currently out and Omg I loved them. They were the first novels of yours that I've read and the definitly WON'T be the last. :) I love the way that you write and absolutely can't wait to start another one! I'm just hoping that the fourth Intertwined book comes out soon so I don't have to wait forever!!! I have "Alice In Zombieland" on order from Amazon right now so anyday now I should be starting that... Can't wait!!! Thank you for creating Aden Stone... He is a character that I can relate to cuz I also at the age of three was placed into the care of the state do to the abandonment of me by my birth parents and have been in and out of institutes since then. He is a character that I look up to and have related with throughout the whole storyline of the Intertwined books. Thank you!! You are truly an amazing author... Please continue to bless the world with your wonderful writings.


Sophia Thank you for accepting my friend request, Gena!

I just discovered your books the year before last and recently got caught up on the LOU series. Now I find myself signed up for the Under the Covers Showalter reading challenge because I am excited to read even more of your books. I love your creative world building and the tone of your writing.

Hope your new year is going well!

Thanks for the add! I love your writing and collect your books. The one series I have not read yet is the Alien Huntress series, but no worries there, my daughter, bless her heart gave me the first 4 in the series for my birthday and Christmas presents! BTW...Loved how you incorporated the LOTU into Wicked Nights! Made it that much better!!
