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…
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.
