Here we GO! Week two and we are still partying!
The winners of Jen's books from Friday are Ella and Carrie! Congratulations! Email me, please.
Erin Collins, where to start? Erin and I have never met, we have never talked on the phone, and I realized the other day that I have not read her book! How weird is that?
What I can tell you about Erin is this, we've known each other for several years. Any time I've asked Erin for help with something, she doesn't ask questions, she shows up. I try very hard to do the same for her.
Now I said I hadn't read Shadow Walk: The Gathering. That is true to an extent, I have read an early version of her manuscript. I distinctly remember the scene with the van...oh my, that is so scary. Erin just eases into this frightful situation like a hot knife to cold butter. I was hooked instantly, then taken down this very scary road before I knew what happened. And there is no way to stop reading once you start.
If you have read my books you know there is a lot of beach time, but think about it, zero on or in the water stuff. ZERO. I got caught in the undertow at Moro Bay, one of the deadliest parts of the California Pacific. Erin has this scene where (I hope it okay to tell this) this guy is in a tank of fluid and can't get out...my heart was racing when I read that. OMGosh!
This very nice lady can scare the bee-jeebies out of anyone. I never saw that one coming! Never.
Read these excerpts and see what I'm talking about: http://www.erin-collins.com/bookshelf.html See what I mean? Erin has you smelling cookies fresh out of the oven, then BAM!
Party Game: Post a comment about what scares YOU. Also, I keep forgetting to mention, ask any writing question you'd like to ask Erin. Posts in the comment section are what make you eligible to win Shadow Walk: The Gathering.
You knew I was going to start with this song, didn't you?
Coming tomorrow is ANDREW REVEL!
