So, what have I been up to lately? This:
What I’m Reading
I just plowed through the entire Dark Tower series by Stephen King for the second time, and I have some shocking and terrible news for you: it’s still incredible. I first started reading the series when I was around 15 years old, and was forced to wait painfully for the last four books to come out.
Being able to read them all back-to-back provided a slightly different experience. But, overall, yeah. I think it’s still my favorite book series of all time. It’s so epic and surreal and strange, with a truly unique world (well, worlds) that feel 100% real. Even the weirder meta elements in the last few books work really well for me.

Stomach is starting to heal from the hernia surgery. Turns out it’s painful for your guts to come out, and JUST AS PAINFUL to put them back in again. So, you know. Don’t do that.
Keep that shit on the inside, if you have the option.
Because I’ve been anchored to the couch for medicinal reasons, been watching a shitload of The Walking Dead, old episodes, and they just remind me how great season 1 and season 2 were.

Just a completely altruistic, non self-serving reminder that the sequel to a book I wrote is coming out in one month. Which I also wrote. I wrote both, is what I’m saying.
Check out the first “Deadgirl”
And the new one, “Deadgirl: Ghostlight”

Remember when I said my first book would get a new cover with its relaunch at a new publisher? No? Well, it will. Actually, it has.
The cover was designed by Andy Garcia and I think she did a great job. It’s hard for the author to not be a picky, unpleasable ass, but I was pretty damn excited about this one. If you don’t mind a bit of self-advertising, the book is out November 6th, and it’s about Lucy Day, the girl too stubborn to die. One part urban fantasy, one part young adult coming-of-age, one part teen romance gone horribly, horribly awry.
If you want to add it on Goodreads for when it comes out, you could do that around here.

It’s just three days until the new Deadgirl cover is revealed to the Universe and the Spaces Beyond. That’s September 25th, if you’re reading this from the future or even the past. Whatever your deal is.
Anyway, Deadgirl is my YA love letter to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’m not big on the self-promotion, but I thought I ought to mention it, because it’s my first novel.
If you like quippy chicks who don’t take sass, high school wackiness, and teenagers getting in supernatural undeathy adventures, you might dig it. It comes out beginning of November, but you can judge it by its cover in three short days.
Okay, peace out!
So, Lucy Day has decided it’s time for the world to hear her tweets. God help us all.
