Busy little bee

First, BIG thanks to everyone for the Release Day congrats and good wishes. It was an exciting day, and a nerve-wracking one as well -- nerve-wracking in the way that I want this book to do well. Because I love it. The characters are real to me. I care about them. I root for them and cry with them, and I want to share their story...

Well, anyway, before I get all sappy about that, I want to say thanks to everyone who is participating in the blog tour today for THE DARKEST EDGE OF DAWN!!. And I want to tell you of two great places I'm appearing today.

1) A giveaway, a review of DEOD and an interview with The Wayfaring Writer. My first book was the first book Brenda ever reviewed on her blog. She's a sweetheart, and it's been so cool to get to know her as we both move forward in the writing world. :D

2) An interview with author E.J. Stevens on her fabulous blog: From the Shadows. She and Brenda both asked me some fun, and unusual questions, so these were fun interviews to do!

Back to the writing. I put this on twitter earlier, because it cracked me up (and still does), but one of the revision oops I found earlier was a line that read: "Put down the porker." It was supposed to be "poker", but, OMG. I think I might have to leave it. Haha!

Well, porker, poker-- I can see that...LOL It gives me weird images in my head.

Thanks for the interview-- I loved your answers, and the book too, of course.

LOVED the book! You better have more of Charlie's story in the works. :) I need more!

Congratulations on releasing your second book - ASAP, I'm buying it. Can't wait to read it, since I enjoyed the first one so much.

I'm sure I will since I adored the first one! Was the place where Charlie's sister's shop is inspired by Little Five Points?

Kelly Gay said...

Oops -- missed this. Sorry Ladytink! But, yes, Bryn's shop was inspired by the Little Five Points area/Underground. Er, with some liberties on my part, LOL. ;-)
