Happy Goth Girl Rising Day!

Monday, October 19th, 2009

The book has been slowly making its way into stores for a couple of weeks now, but today is the official publication day for Goth Girl Rising! Which means that the book should be in stores everywhere. (Note that I said "should." If it isn’t in your local store, ask the nice folks behind the […]

Kyra with the GGR cover!

Friday, September 18th, 2009

An early copy of Goth Girl Rising came to my via UPS. And my God, people — this cover is so freakin' gorgeous in person I just had to take a picture of it for you. Along with a Kyra minimate standing in front of it like George C. Scott, of course! Check it out! […]

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Amazon.com asked me some questions about Goth Girl Rising, and I did my part (which meant, y'know, answering them). Here's the interview.

And the ARC Goes to…

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

The “Win the Goth Girl Rising ARC” Contest is officially over, with entries coming through Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and both of my web sites. And the winner is…Fanboy107. (Hmm. With a name like that, maybe it’s fate?) How did Fanboy107 win? Well, it was all random. I got so many entries and so many people […]

Want to Read GOTH GIRL RISING before anyone else?

Friday, June 26th, 2009

So, a Goth Girl Rising ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) has come into my possession. I’ve had it for about a month because while I want to give it away to a reader, I haven’t been sure of the fairest way to do so. I didn’t want to do something entirely random because, well, that’s just […]

Goth Girl Rising on Sale…for $1000???

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

OK, I knew that people were eager for Goth Girl Rising, but $1,000? For a used copy? That's ridiculous! (As always, click to embiggen.)     I circled the price and my favorite part, explaining that this copy "may have been withdrawn from library circulation." Yeah, right. Given that I just two days ago sent […]

The Sequel: Goth Girl Rising

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Time is a funny thing in the hospital. In the mental ward. You lose track of it easily. After six months in the Maryland Mental Health Unit, Kyra Sellers, a.k.a. Goth Girl, is going home. Unfortunately, she’s about to find out that while she was away, she lost track of more than time. Things seem […]

Really, Amazon?

Friday, January 16th, 2009

Found this sort of amusing… Amazon.com's product pages have all kinds of useful information these days, along with a quirky little datum called "statistically improbably phrases," or SIPs for those of you who like your acronyms to imply a beverage that's just a little bit too hot. An SIP is a phrase that, in Amazon's […]

Did Someone Say “Sequel?”

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

If you’ve been waiting for a Fanboy sequel…you only have to wait a little bit longer.
