Sorry about the quote. Yes, it's from Goldmember. It was the only one I could think of with the phrase "thank you" in it. Which is the essence of this post. Say what you will about the Austin Powers movies, but the fact that they spoofed Oddjob by naming a henchman Random Task is just fantastic. Random Task. I love it.

So, GIRL OF NIGHTMARES is out today!!!! And so many people have wished it a happy book birthday, and said nice things, and I'm reading and appreciating every one! I fully planned on responding individually to everyone but my fingers would have fallen off mid-typing. You guys are excellent. Excellent.

Thank you. Thank you to everyone who read (or will read or is reading) any of the books, and thank you to everyone who pre-ordered (or will order or is ordering) or went to a bookstore (or will go or is there) to get a copy. Did you know that every copy comes with a side of my undying gratitude? Well it does.

Also, I hear that copies are really good at leveling uneven chairs and tables.

Lisa Desrochers and Marta Acosta and I will be out on tour next week, so I hope to have the opportunity to thank and flail on people in person.

I feel like I should be doing more on this release day...like standing on a street corner with a dog in a hat and possibly a vested monkey. We could hand out snow cones. Instead I'm going to hang here and be useless, and do a final pass on ANTIGODDESS edits.

A week ago, this was to be a post about my pilgrimage to Forks with my editor. But then I got busy (or lazy, what have you) and now that post must wait.

So in summary. THANK YOU. I await your backlash and thrown produce.

Nicola Ordered it from Amazon because its not available in Australia yet, I adored the first book so much and was going to order the second one from my bookstore...only to find out that the first one became available for the first time last month. Can not wait to read it, excited doesn't even describe how I feel right now!!!

Oh, thank you! I know, it's a long wait for an Australian Girl of Nightmares...I'm so glad you liked Anna. Hope you enjoy the second as much :)


The Literary Connoisseur Yes! My favorite has to be #3 :-)
I'm sure I will, I was thinking about Anna Dressed in Blood today and remembering how amazing it was! Keep up the great work, Kendare!

Jasmine I got Anna dressed in blod for a christmas present but I didn't know it. So i requested it in my library. And wen it came my sister took my book away saying. Couldn't read it and returned te book. When Christmas came around I opened my present and there it was. I hoped I got girl of nightmares for my birthday but no. There wasn't enough money. Well I'm 15 out of 19 holds. Haha.

Congratulations! I can't wait to read it! :D


Jen*The Geeky Book Gal* LOVED Girl of Nightmares almost as much as Anna Dressed in Blood! Will there be an Anna #3? The ending of #2 had me "AWWWWWWWing".
