Dr. Evil, I used to think you were crazy, but now I can see your nuts. A-thank-u.

Sorry about the quote. Yes, it's from Goldmember. It was the only one I could think of with the phrase "thank you" in it. Which is the essence of this post. Say what you will about the Austin Powers movies, but the fact that they spoofed Oddjob by naming a henchman Random Task is just fantastic. Random Task. I love it.

So, GIRL OF NIGHTMARES is out today!!!! And so many people have wished it a happy book birthday, and said nice things, and I'm reading and appreciating every one! I fully planned on responding individually to everyone but my fingers would have fallen off mid-typing. You guys are excellent. Excellent.

Thank you. Thank you to everyone who read (or will read or is reading) any of the books, and thank you to everyone who pre-ordered (or will order or is ordering) or went to a bookstore (or will go or is there) to get a copy. Did you know that every copy comes with a side of my undying gratitude? Well it does.

Also, I hear that copies are really good at leveling uneven chairs and tables.

Lisa Desrochers and Marta Acosta and I will be out on tour next week, so I hope to have the opportunity to thank and flail on people in person.

I feel like I should be doing more on this release day…like standing on a street corner with a dog in a hat and possibly a vested monkey. We could hand out snow cones. Instead I'm going to hang here and be useless, and do a final pass on ANTIGODDESS edits.

A week ago, this was to be a post about my pilgrimage to Forks with my editor. But then I got busy (or lazy, what have you) and now that post must wait.

So in summary. THANK YOU. I await your backlash and thrown produce.

    Girl of nightmares.


    I want to say congratulations and thank you for writing Anna dressed in blood, and Girl of nightmares, they were brilliant reads! I hope that you are writing a third instalment in the series! I live in the UK so ordered your hardback on-line, just got it in the post yesterday afternoon, and devoured it already… Seriously good quality paper, and the brown ink tasted scrumptious.

    Thank you Kendare you rock.

      Thank you! For reading, and taking the time to comment, and ordering from overseas, and all that stuff! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the books (along with the colored ink…dried blood color, all my editor’s idea!).

      Unfortunately, I’m fairly certain this is the end of the series. Unless Cas suddenly starts talking again in a few years.

      Thank you again. Very cool to hear such kind compliments.
