Rat Blackjack Anyone?

I'm going to Vegas, baby! ;)
Two nights ago I was updating my blog with those fancy new pages you see at the top. I scrolled down to change something and there was my cute little NIGHTSHADE CITY debut countdown widget staring me in the face. It read, 21 days, 21 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds! So right quick I hit the 'PrtSc' button and captured the moment!

Hmmm...Blackjack times four for my rats??? I'll take it! ;)

  3. That is so cool. And I went to Barned and Noble and got your book already. I just started it, but it's great. I have three books checked out from the library that I have to finish, but I'm sneeking in pages of Nightshade City every chance I get. How exciting!

    Diane! Thank you! I'm all jitters! Scary stuff!

    Melissa! I get goose bumps when I read that someone is reading and likes my book! It is a thrill like no other! Please let me know your thoughts when you're all done! I can't wait to hear! :):):):)

  10. Lindsay! I can't wait to hear what you think about the ending. There is quite a little twist!

    Cinette, thank you! I can't wait either! :)

    Larissa, it's cool and pretty much terrifying!

    Thanks, Kristal. Rick Riordan is seriously the nicest, most generous author. I was FLOORED, actually still am! :)

    Hooray! Michelle, can't wait to hear what you think!

    Piedmont! Thanks so much! It's weird, ever sense the whole "book thing" my hub and I have not been to Vegas. We used to go twice a year. I'll take this over "real" Blackjack any day!!!!! ;)

  11. -grins- That really is great.
    My mom is going to Barnes And Noble today. I'm trying to bully her into going to see if we got it early.

  12. Yay, you're getting closer to your debut! It's an awesome book. And your rats are smart enough to play blackjack. They should have a little casino in Nightshade City.

  13. Medeia, you just made me laugh out loud! You are funny! My only worry would be Billycan would find a way to run the casino and that would not be good for anyone! ;)

  15. How cool, Hilary! Don't you love when things like that happen? All the stars were properly aligned, or something.

    And we've had your book in the bookstore for a couple weeks. I bought a copy (since I never saw an ARC of it). Just finished it and LOVED it. So much action and adventure. Great job.

    Lynn, it was weird! Made me feel like something good was going to happen!

    Joanne! That. Is. Awesome! So glad you liked it! That makes me so happy to read! Please let me know if you want bookmarks for your store! I'd be happy to send some...just got them in and they're really nice!
