Odds and ends

Announcing a major announcement! I'll have big news on June 7 for Vessel. Don't worry--it's good news. No mom, I'm not pregnant. In the meantime, here's a rundown of everything that's going on:

Cocktail Book: In anticipation of the release of Exodus, I'm releasing a downloadable cocktail recipe book. It'll include character drink favorites and a reader drinking game . . . and it'll be FREE! Just download, print, staple, and grab your blender. Look for it in August 2013.

Other surprises: a hilarious video series, a second edition of Book I: The Advent, and a new T-Shirt are all in the works . . . all coming soon!

Pinterest! Vessel now has a Pinterest. It's still in its infancy (I have no idea what I'm doing), but there's already a casting wish list board because I'm my own biggest fangirl. And because AMIN AL GAMAL. Seriously, those shy puppy eyes. I am now butter. Soon to come: maps and visuals, the aforementioned drink recipes, and something involving mason jars, because apparently that's some kind of requirement on Pinterest.

Ghi material, amiright?

So there you have it. Keep an eye out for more announcements, and remember: now's the perfect time to pass Advent along to a friend, because Exodus will be here by the time she's finished! (Unless she's Lindsey Strain, who reads at the speed of an Andalite*.) Holy crap you guys, it's almost here!

*If I remember my Animorphs shit correctly, an Andalite can read an entire book just by touching its cover. Did I make that up? Or am I thinking of some other sci-fi/fantasy species from my youth? Because I can't find reference to that anywhere online. Oh well, guess it's time to re-read the best book EVER, according to 11-year-old me.


  1. I totes have kid books that I go back to, and I definitely ordered the whole franchise years ago from Amazon. A generation before Animorphs, though, I think. And as for Ghi: Absolutely! Nice catch!

    1. What were yours? I think I only ever read six or seven of the Animorphs books, but I saw all the promotional stuff when the last one (#54!!) came out. I was a senior in high school then, a little older than the target audience, but I went and bought it. Bawled my eyes out when it was over. I've wanted to read them all to fill in the gaps ever since. Someday!
