I get to be a guest at Suzanne Johnson's Preternatura blog - woohoo! Suzanne is a fellow Tor writer and her wonderful debut urban fantasy, Royal Street, was released earlier in the year and River Road, Sentinels of New Orleans #2, comes out in November. Sometimes I grind my teeth in jealousy over the amazing book giveaways she has, but her niceness makes me forgive her every time.
Suzanne asks me questions and I answer all fancy like because that's how I roll, and she's got a contest for Dark Companion.
Michelle of Much Loved Books says my book has "a mixture of secrets, mysteries, friendships and romance and of course hot boys" and also interviews me:
Perfection doesn’t interest me though. People who don’t make mistakes never take chances either. I’m fascinated by our errors in judgment, by ambiguity, by emotional conflict, by opposing motives.Alice Marvels, a teen fiction book site, has a contest for Dark Companion and a review:
A powerful and darkly entrancing gothic novel that, like its diamond-in-the-rough heroine, takes commonplace elements and turns them into something dazzling.If you're tired of hearing about my book, go over and read Wicked Little Pixie's rant about newsletter. Yes, I get those newsletters, too, and I think, "I never signed up for this!"
Lea at YA Book Queen has something wonderful! She's got links for two free audiobooks: the very ghostly Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, another Tor author, and, The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins! I've always wanted to read Collins's classic Gothic, but I thought it would be too spooky because I'm easily scared. I'm going to listen to it though.

Ghosts in Western lore are usually seen as white images, so the theme is white, ghostly, spirits, etc.
