Anything Goes

I certainly hope Mom & Dad weren’t up at 11pm last night listening in to my podcast interview on ANYTHING GOES…and if you were happily in dreamland too, worry not! You can still listen to the interview in its 30-minute entirety HERE:

Geek Girls and Big Ideas

Today on the HERO Book Tour, we have:

My “The Big Idea” essay, hosted by John Scalzi, in which I talk about…well…the big idea behind HERO. Which is always fun! ANd John is a particular hero of MINE, so it’s an honor to have an essay on his site.

***

Another one-of-a-kind Fairy Tale Rant Video for www.geekgirlinlove.com, in which I rant about Petronella and “Master Maid,” the original fairy tales behind HERO (the ones fewer people are apparently familiar with). Click here to watch!

***

I talk about “The Book Shelf I Can’t Live Without” over at Mel’s Shelves, complete with picture and accompanying list of titles I’d be surprised if you’ve heard of.

***

And today’s quote…since I’ve been remiss about posting the quotes (but you can always find them all on Tumblr)

A Sword and a Destiny

Today’s Blog Offerings

HERO landed in bookstores today, and exploded all over the intarwebs in a big way!

***

At the Waterworld Mermaids, I blog about my spectacular, almost supernatural ability to pull off things at the Last Minute. Includes a few stats on Beloved, the first draft of which I finished last night around 11pm. (Click here to read and enter to win the Blog Tour Basket!)

***

Over at Mary Robinette Kowal‘s blog, I talk about “My Favorite Bit” of HERO and its Shakespearean origins. I absolutely LOVE this essay. It’s possibly my favorite entry of the tour. (Click here to read!)

***

The gorgeous Ms. Book Queen has posted her own review of HERO today, in conjunction with a chance to win a signed copy of Enchanted. (Click here to read and enter!)

***

HERO is Justine Magazine‘s Most Fun Fairy Tale for Teen Read Week! Click here to read some really fun Spark Girl reviews!

***

Another fabulous review at Library of a Book Witch…by someone who *gets* the old-school fairy tale references!

***

A really fun interview with MOI over at Tressa’s Wishful Endings! I talk about damsels in distress and my all-time favorite fairy tales.

Hero Birthday!

Happy Book Birthday, Dear HERO!

There will be a lot more from me on the intarwebs later, now that I’ve finished the manuscript for Beloved (*fanfare*), but first I’m gonna relax a bit. Right after I say…

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY, HERO!

My 2013 Baltimore Book Fest Schedule

ACK! Too many things going on!

I will only be appearing at the Baltimore Book Festival one day: this FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27TH.

Here’s my schedule:

3:00-4:00pm YA Paranormal/Romance
Location: Maryland Romance Writers Pavilion

4:00-5:45 Workshop: What’s New in Young Adult Fiction: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal
Location: SFWA Pavilion

I will be around all day (or, as soon as I can arrive) to sign books (I’ll bring as many copies of HERO as will fit in my suitcase). It doesn’t look like there will be much time between my panels, but fear not — I will definitely stick around until everyone has gotten their books properly defaced by MOI!

Princess Alethea Rants About Rumpelstiltskin

Debz BookshelfGood morning, my darlings!

On this lovely first day of the HERO BLOG TOUR (*fanfare*), we bring to you the awesomeness that is one of Princess Alethea’s Classic Fairy Tale Rants.

Deb from Debz’s Bookshelf requested specifically that I rant about one of her favorites, “Rumpelstiltskin.” And I had so much fun, I once again thought, “Hey…I should really do more of these…”

But first, I have a book to write. In the meantime, check this out! xox
