Celebrate: The First Review of Bloodwalker Up!! & Giveaways

This week passed by in something between a whirlwind and a buzz saw. Straining to research and get out queries to book bloggers (while personalizing each and trying not to sound like I'm begging), I've gotten by on way too little sleep.  Like 3-4 hours a night.  I've found emails from 1 or 2 reviewers that requested, and I sent out the ARC copies, and yet I look at the emails and have zero memory of doing it! :O

And with the plethora of books hitting the market, refusals are more common than ever, but you have to keep trying, no matter how late you go to bed. 

So it was incredibly satisfying to have my week end on such a bright note! 

A Top 10 Goodreads reviewer read BLOODWALKER in only 2 days, wrote a phenomenal review, and actually used the word "brilliant" twice!

I normally don't put up anything about reviews or rankings or whatever. But this very first review of BLOODWALKER is more than I could have hoped for -- I'm floored -- and it's too awesome not to share!

The novel doesn't come out till October, but stay tuned for next week's post -- there's going to be a special surprise!
