Second foreign rights sale! CRUEL BEAUTY will be published in Turkey by Pegasus Publishing.
I discuss trying to make the romance in CRUEL BEAUTY “creepy, but not too creepy.”
I have two more guest posts:
At Fiktshun, I discuss the lure of the Beast.
At Ivy Book Bindings, I explain why I wrote a bad boy romance when I’ve always sworn I hated bad boys.
Three and a half years after I got ambushed by a crazy, melodramatic story idea, CRUEL BEAUTY is a published book! Available for buying in all sorts of book places!
If you’re still feeling dubious, remember you can read the first 70 pages online.
BUT YOU WANT TO BUY IT RIGHT NOW?
Meanwhile, I’ve had a few more short guest posts/interviews:
I have a very fun interview up at the Supernatural Snark blog. Keys, books, & crème brûlée!
You can now read the first 70 pages of CRUEL BEAUTY through the HarperTeen Browse Inside feature.
Want to read the first chapter of CRUEL BEAUTY? It’s now live on Tor.com!
My short story “Apotheosis” has been reprinted by Lightspeed Magazine! It’s available now as part of the ebook edition of the magazine, and it will be posted to the website on January 7.
When I wrote this story in 2004, and for quite a few years after, it was my favorite thing I’d ever written. I wouldn’t quite call it that now, but I still like it very much, and it’s exciting to see it in print again.
