I made a tab at the top of the page for events called Events, because I’m clever like that. I thought that would be a good way for people to check out what I have coming up, like book signings and release dates.

Also, I wanted to thank everybody for checking out the Trylle Book Trailer yesterday. It’s already had over 130,000 views, so thanks for spreading the word!

As some of you may know, the Trylle books are about changelings. But not everybody knows what changelings are. Tor posted this really great write up on changelings and what they are and how that relates to Switched and the rest of the Trylle trilogy. So you should check that out: here.

I probably won’t be checking the interweb much over the next few days, since I’m hosting not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Christmas gatherings at my home over the next three days. Yeah. I’m like Vince Vaughn and Reece Witherspoon. Only I don’t hate Christmas or my family.

So I’m deciding to leave you all with a list of my favorite Christmas songs. Why, you ask? I don’t know. I like songs, and I like sharing.

1. “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home” – Death Cab for Cutie

2. “Last Christmas” – Jimmy Eat World

3. “Deck the Halls” – Idiot Pilot

4. “Happy Xmas” – John Lennon

5. “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out” – Fall Out Boy

6. “Ice Dance” – Danny Elfman

7. “Maybe Next Year” – Meiko

8. “Feed the World” – Band Aid

9. “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” – Local H

10. “Thank God Its Christmas” – Queen

Happy Holidays!!!!

    This was an excellent read, one that had me googling for the third book, only to find out it hasn’t been written yet. It has a bit of “Harry Potter” thrill with the love triangle of “Twilight”. Unlike those two series though, this one has very few dull moments. I never once felt the need to skim a page or skip a part to get back to the good stuff. And I assure you, I will be first in line to buy the third book when it finally comes out!
