HAPPY HALLOWEEN my black rose petals! Time for a TRICK OR TREAT!

(*blows some dust off blog*)

Would you like to win a signed advance copy of Sabrina #2, DAUGHTER OF CHAOS, or a signed copy of Sabrina #1, SEASON OF THE WITCH? This photograph was taken in the darkness of a drive-in viewing of #HOCUSPOCUS, one of the greatest Halloween movies of all times. I took SABRINA book 1 to the movies with me...

In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan
“The most annoying thing, perhaps, was that the elven troop were obviously good people and were being kind to them, and yet Elliot felt subtly wrong-footed at every turn. He wondered if this was how Serene felt all the time, and he promised himself to bear it as well as she did.”
Sarah Rees Brennan
Sarah liked a quote
In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan
“Violence was like that, Elliot had noticed. One move toward it and all at once everything was allowed: anyone could be hurt, out of a mix of pride and anger and stupid disregard for the fact that you could be hurt as easily as someone else.”
Sarah Rees Brennan
" Sherwood wrote: "LOVED this book. So. Much."

your kindness about the book made me v.v.v.v. happy! Thank you!

“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

“Hark,” he said, his tone very dry. “What stone through yonder window breaks?”
Kami yelled up at him, “It is the east, and Juliet is a jerk!”
Jared abandoned Shakespeare and demanded, “What do you think you’re doing?”
“Throwing a pebble,” said Kami defensively. “Uh… and I’ll pay for the window.”
Jared vanished and Kami was ready to start shouting again, when he reemerged with the pebble clenched in his fist. “This isn’t a pebble! This is a rock.”
“It’s possible that your behaviour has inspired some negative feelings that caused me to pick a slightly overlarge pebble,” Kami admitted.”
Sarah Rees Brennan, Unspoken

Sarah Rees Brennan, The Demon's Surrender

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. LeGuin

“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”
Sarah Rees Brennan

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.
