Kristen Callihan lol. Thank you! I'll be trying my best to get Gray's story to you as soon as I can! Gray isn't very good at waiting either. ;-)
Kristen Callihan Hi Layla. I named Drew after Drew Brees --my husband was watching a Saint's game when I was trying to come up with a name. And I kept hearing "Drew"…moreHi Layla. I named Drew after Drew Brees --my husband was watching a Saint's game when I was trying to come up with a name. And I kept hearing "Drew" lol.

As for why I chose "Baylor" it might be that somewhere in the back of my mind I thought "Baylor" synonymous with "football." I do know that I thought it was a perfect last name because it went really well with his nickname of "Battle" ;-)

Thanks for asking! (less)

Hey All,

If you enjoyed FIRELIGHT, perhaps you'd like to have a character in MOONGLOW named after you.

RT Book Reviews is hosting a contest for this very thing.

Yes, I will rename one of the characters in my upcoming novel, MOONGLOW, after one lucky winner.

See here for details:

http://www.rtbookreviews.com/rt-daily...

Good luck to any and all who enter! :)

“Slowly, her slim hand smoothed over the swell of his buttock, lingering there. A shocked laugh choked his throat, the sound muddled by a stifled groan that her intrigued touch elicited. The saucy little sneak thief was copping a feel. He felt inclined to turn around and let her get a handful.”
Kristen Callihan, Firelight

“We are all imperfect creatures, love. I don't want perfect. I just want you.”
Kristen Callihan, Moonglow

“He took a quick breath, and his voice dropped. "You've no notion of the effect you have on me"

The words gave a hard tug to her belly. She closed her eyes and swallowed. "If by effect, you mean finding yourself in unchartered waters, wondering whether you are coming or going...." She stared at his shirt, watching his breath hitch. "Then I fear you have the same effect on me, my lord.”
Kristen Callihan, Firelight

Saleen Hi Kristen,
I love Firelight and Moonglow! I'll have to look into the rest of the Darkest London books. Is there a chance your Darkest London books will appear on the big or TV screen?

Sorry that I missed this! To answer your question, it is only available in ebook format. :( However, I *think* you can also purchase ebooks to read on your computer. I don't know if that helps...

And thank you for your kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed the books. :)


message 6: by Emily

Emily Hey Kristen,

I've posted reviews for both FIRELIGHT AND MOONGLOW. I also posted the review of FIRELIGHT on Amazon. They were both amazing, but I really enjoyed MOONGLOW. I'm looking forward to WINTERBLAZE!

Is EMBER only available in ebook format? I would like to read this prequel, but I don't have a kindle/nook/etc.

I'm stubborn and refuse to buy one :-)

Thanks!
