Something Strange & Deadly
You may have noticed something GIGANTIC and DIFFERENT about my blog. In case you didn’t (or in case you’re reading this through an RSS feed), then I shall point out the change to you.

In fact’s a A FINISHED SEQUEL. Yep, that’s right. A Darkness Strange and Lovely is now complete. […]
I don’t normally share my own interviews on my blog, but the questions for this interview were just TOO FUN! So I have to share…plus, there’s another great interviewee (author Eve Marie Mont, author of BREATH OF EYR) and an awesome GIVEAWAY (looooots of swag).
