Avon Gale was once the mayor on Foursquare of Jazzercise and Lollicup, which should tell you all you need to know about her as a person. She likes road trips, rock concerts, drinking Kentucky bourbon and yelling at hockey. She’s a displaced southerner living in a liberal midwestern college town, and she never gets tired of people and their stories -- either real or the ones she makes up in her head.

Avon is represented by Courtney Miller-Callihan at Handspun Literary Agency.

Avon Gale is currently not accepting new questions.

I thought I failed at Tumblr, but apparently me and Goodreads need to have a nice long chat :| ANYWAY OMG YES THANK YOU, you are so nice! I am so glad you liked it :D And I have more books, yes! I do have a sequel planned, sort of, for Let the Wrong Light In -- it's about Harlan, but Avery will insist on showing up because, well, Avery ;)

My next book is called Breakaway, and it comes out in November. It's the first in a series of books about minor league hockey players in the South, and the second book in that series comes out in Jan/Feb I think?? I also have a short story in the Dreamspinner Advent Anthology that will be out in December. So I'll be annoyingly forcing my love of banter on everyone with no apparent plans to stop anytime soon :| (less)

BUT STILL. :D And yes, the "Scoring Chances" series has four books at the moment (two are in publishing process, the third is done but I'm wrangling with the draft before submitting it to DSP, and the fourth is....3/4 done??) so there will be :| a lot of hockey forthcoming from this girl. And haha, so far the story with Harlan has him working with the closeted son of a dickhead politician to restore a haunted hotel :D (less)

“If you think you're into that, man, there are websites. Start with those before you go to something called Total Domination Tuesdays.”
Avon Gale, Let the Wrong Light In

“Me: fine. u ever want 2 sleep w/someone u really dont like? Everett: you mean like a republican?”
Avon Gale, Let the Wrong Light In

“Don’t tell your parents you’re gay and I’m not your girlfriend. Tell them you’re gay because someone is your boyfriend.”
“Can I tell them it’s that hot guy on Teen Wolf?”
Avon Gale, Breakaway

“You really want to go out to dinner?" Gabriel shot Rase a skeptical look out of the corner of his eye.
"As opposed to what?"
"Getting on your knees and begging me to beat you." There was no inflection in Gabriel's voice, no heat, and no emotion at all. He wasn't even looking at Rase.
... "I don't want one more than the other," he answered, fully aware that he was being challenged. "They're not interchangeable. I want them both."
Rase took a breath to calm the pounding in his chest and continued, even though Gabriel wouldn't look at him. "I want to go out to dinner with you, anywhere you want, on a date. And then I want to go back to your place or my place and I want you to beat me until I bleed.”
Anah Crow, Uneven

“I really think I shall commence chapter forty-four," he said, patting his hands together. "I shall commence, I think, with a slight exaggeration and go on from there into an outright lie. Constance, my dear?"
"Yes, Uncle Julian?"
"I am going to say that my wife was a beautiful woman.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

“I can't help it when people are frightened," says Merricat. "I always want to frighten them more.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

“…There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible—magic to make the sanest man go mad.”
Homer, The Iliad
