I prefer the dark streets when I can’t have the sunlight

I napped today from 7 pm until midnight because I don’t know how to nap properly, but I’m finally getting tired again, so I’m about to shove off.

I just wanted to stop in and say a few things.

First, Ronnell Porter – the genius behind the glorious book trailer – wrote a lovely review of My Blood Approves on his blog, so you should check it out. My favorite part: “The first in a developing cult phenom, My Blood Approves…”
Also – I’ll be posting a review of Imogen Rose‘s Portal tomorrow. (Hint: I liked it.)
As of right now, it’s looking like I’ll be releasing Switched – the first book in a new series – mid-July. Originally slated for a September release, I decided it’d be silly to wait. It’s going through some final edits, then I’m trying it out on some readers, so we’ll see how it goes. 
I’d love to see a July 12th release, cause it’s my birthday, and I like celebrating, but we’ll see how it goes. 
The working description for Switched is: “When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn’t until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might’ve been telling the truth. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself submerged in a world she never knew existed – and she’s not sure if she wants to be a part of it.”

It’s like Princess Diaries, but with a much harder edge and a paranormal slant. 

In good news that’s not about me, it’s only 13 more hours until new episodes of Futurama premiere on Comedy Central! I’m so excited!
