Friday Stuff and Items

Just when you thought it was safe to venture out in daylight and not be accosted by a [pasty or sparkling] vampire - along come Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan who give their vampire a hazmat suit - so he can go to school...with the humans...

Dear readers, we admit have been keeping secrets from you, but now we are ready to come clean.Team Human is almost a real actual book! And it's not just any book. As Cory Doctorow says:
'This is the vampire-human supernatural romance you want the world to fall in love with.'
And the good people at Kirkus Reviews are also much enamoured:
'Laugh-out-loud funny, heart-wrenchingly sad and fist-pump-in-the-air triumphant, this sparkling gem proves that vampires, zombies and even teenagers . at heart, we're all on Team Human.' 
Psst! Here's a sneak peek at the first chapter. And a glimpse behind the curtain at the photo shoot for the cover! And [cue trumpets] FAN ART! Genius. 

Remember how excited we were that the advances of Brigid Kemmerer's Storm landed in the House. Well, imagine how excited we are that it's now a book, out in the world, for people to drool over read! RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED!

And LOOK! LOOOOOOK! Brigid has a super-exclusive contest on her blog. Get to it, people. 

Is everyone paying attention? We have a very important public service announcement. Mother's Day is not in fact THIS Sunday. It is indeed NEXT Sunday. This was news to us. We concede we were not entirely across this, so we thought we should give you the heads up. Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May. Yep. Second Sunday. Not First. Don't do the mixing up or your mum will be displeased. She might end up with two Mother's Days. And while this might sound like  GOOD THING, we draw your attention to the The Night Before Mother's Day.

Herewith, this hilarious little book by the incredibly clever collaborators, Doug MacLeod  & Judy Horacek, read in full by the wonderful Tracy Harvey.

End public service announcement.
