Claudia Gray is not my real name. I didn't choose a pseudonym because my real name is unpleasant (it isn't), because I'd always dreamed of calling myself this (I haven't) or even because I'm hiding from the remnants of that international diamond-smuggling cartel I smashed in 2003 (Interpol has taken care of them). In short, I took a pseudonym for no real reason whatsoever. Sometimes this is actually the best reason to do things.

I live in New Orleans. So far, in life, I've been a disc jockey, a lawyer, a journalist and an extremely bad waitress, just to name a few. I especially like to spend time traveling, hiking, reading and listening to music. More than anything else, I enjoy writing.

So, what is this thing we call "Wattpad"? (CONTEST)

This week, I'll be giving away ANOTHER prize pack of five books - including an ARC for one of next month's hottest new releases. The prize books include an autographed copy of FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by Diana Peterfreund, a scifi retelling of one of my all-time favorites, Jane Austen's Persuasion; 34 PIECES OF YOU by Carmen Rodrigues, which is unrelated to A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU in any way Read more of this blog post »

"I have no words to describe how beautiful this cover is. It fits perfectly with the summary, which tells just enough to make me interested without giving too much away.

Ugh. And now, I wait for it to come out.

“It’s funny—when people call you “shy,” they usually smile. Like it’s cute, some funny little habit you’ll grow out of when you’re older, like the gaps in your grin when your baby teeth fall out. If they knew how it felt—really being shy, not just unsure at first—they wouldn’t smile. Not if they knew how the feeling knots up your stomach or makes your palms sweat or robs you of the ability to say anything that makes sense. It’s not cute at all.”
Claudia Gray, Evernight

“Self-knowledge is better than self-control any day," Raquel said firmly. "And I know myself well enough to know how I act around cookies.”
Claudia Gray, Evernight

“I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to yourself any longer, not completely. Part of you belongs to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.”
Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You
