Returning Vampires Snippet Celebration + In The News

Yesterday I had a nice long conversation about YA and Blackwood and related topics with Louisville public radio station WFPL's ace arts reporter Erin Keane (who is also fabulous writer–highly recommend both her poetry collections), as a preview to the Writer's Block Festival where I'll be panel discussioning about YA (and signing) on Saturday. The resulting story is here.

And, if you didn't know (gaspALARM), tonight is…

…the return of The Vampire Diaries.

In honor of this momentous fall occasion, here's a teeny not-spoilery snippet from a scene between Miranda and Phillips in Blackwood:

She blinked, but he couldn't tell if it had worked until she said, "You snooped in my room?"

He had her.

"I had to help pack your stuff." He wrinkled his nose. "You have a thing for brooding vampire brothers?"

"You've seen it?"

Keep her talking. He shrugged. "Study lounge has a TV. Doppelgangers are hot. I'm not proud."

Happy Thursday, y'all.

    I just wanted to drop by and tell you that I’m reading Blackwood right now, and one of my favourite things is all the nerdy pop culture references. Finally, characters who watch all the nerdy shows that I do!
    What did you think of the episode?

    Yay! *beam* So pleased to hear you’re enjoying it.
    And I am so glad the show is back. I really liked the first ep of this season. I think it set up lots of things that will be nail-biting (and other kinds of biting, obviously) fun. Very intrigued to see how Elena’s transition develops and also what happens with Bonnie. And I like that bossy Damon is back. :-)
