So the Unmade cover has sneaked out, and thus I get to show you guys it in all its glory!


Do you liiike it? I hope so! I like that it has Kami, the Crying Pools, and a SUNSET which implies THE END OF DAYS.

Grim by Christine   Johnson
" I did not expect to like this as much as I did. A lot of the authors are ones I haven't read before, mostly because the subject matter of their big novels (vampires, love-triangles, modern-day witches) just doesn't appeal to me. However, I now hav... " Read more of this review »

Grim by Christine   Johnson
" This is a fantastic collection of short stories, all versions in each of the different authors very own voice of classical Grim fairy tales.

Sarah liked a quote
If men could see us as we really are, they would be a little amazed; but the cleverest, the acutest men are often under an illusion about women: they do not read them in a true light: they misapprehend them, both for good and evil: their good woman is a queer thing, half doll, half angel; their bad woman almost always a fiend.Charlotte Brontë
Sarah liked a quote
WORTH IT and perfect are different things. No one’s perfect, yet in romance, everyone becomes WORTH IT. And that’s the trick.Maureen Johnson

“Fear's useless. Either something bad happens or it doesn't: If it doesn't, you've wasted time being afraid, and if it does, you've wasted time that you could have spent sharpening your weapons.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, The Demon's Lexicon

“I am in full possession of the amazing power of being sarcastic.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, The Demon's Covenant

“What the hell is going on?" demanded Kami's dad, advancing with his black eyes snapping. Jared blurted, "My intentions are honourable."
Kami sat up straight in her bed and stared in Jared's direction. "Are you completely crazy?" she wanted to know. "This isn't the eighteenth century. How do you think that's going to help?"
"Well, I mean," Jared said, back against the wall like a cornered animal. "When we're older. I mean-"
"Please shut up," Kami begged.
"I agree with Kami," said Dad. "When you're in an abyss-like hole, quit digging.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, Unspoken

Anthony Trollope

“I don't have your way with words "Sin said. "So I'm just going to go with a quick response. Ha”
Sarah Rees Brennan, The Demon's Surrender

“I can smite you " Nick grumbled. "Anytime I like.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, The Demon's Surrender

“We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel... is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

“Lots of kids in books are only-child orphans, but I think it’s fun to have family as part of the adventure, to have familial love be as important as romantic love, and to show that love can go through fire and darkness - not unchanged, because experiences like that change everyone - but never faltering”

Daniel Been to Dublin. loved it and included it in two of my books, Sarah. Are they still giving FREE Guinness when you take the Guinness plant tour? I wrote that in a foggy night you could tell where you were in Dublin by sniffing how close you were to the aroma of the Guinness factory.
