Girl of Nightmares is out in paperback, so I’m giving some away!

I think the title pretty much sums it up. But in case you like visuals:

Girl of Nightmares paperbackThere she is. She’s purty. And I have a bunch, so let’s see…comment here and/or share something about the paperback release on social media and I’ll draw a bunch of winners say…next week. It can be something as simple as, “Hey, Girl of Nightmares is out in paperback now!” But, if you get funny and/or creative you do increase your chances of winning. I make random draw exceptions for funny and creative people. I’ll admit it. They go into their own little pool.

So! I’m off to Texas tomorrow at the buttcrack of dawn, because that’s when I like to fly. I’ll be landing in Dallas Ft. Worth and doing an event at the Irving Public Library Thursday the 19th at 7pm. Come on out! It’s me, Sonia Gensler (THE DARK BETWEEN), Tara Hudson (HEREAFTER), Rosemary Clement-Moore (TEXAS GOTHIC), and Jennifer Archer (THROUGH HER EYES)! Sonia, Tara and I were 2011 debuts together, but we’ve never met, so I’m really looking forward to hanging with them. And you. If you will come out and hang with us.

It also happens to be Dylan’s birthday, so I am catching hell for leaving even though he said I could go. He’s had some time off work recently and something I’ve discovered: he sings all the time. ALL THE FRICKEN TIME. It’s a chorus line of RENT and WICKED around here. Show tunes, jingles, pop songs, he seems to have no preference. The other day I caught him in the backyard saying, “Peregrin Took,” over and over in Gandalf voice for no reason. I like show tunes as much as the next guy, but let’s just say it’s starting to feel like he’s been home for five hundred twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes.

Caught the season finale of Game of Thrones last night. Minor spoilers for those who haven’t seen it yet, so there’s your warning to pass up this paragraph. Dany is a bad dragon mom! There, I said it. One look from those dragon-baby eyes and I would have run back screaming, “Eff it! You can eat all the children you want! Oh my sweet dragon babies!”

Of course this is probably why I’m not allowed to have dragons.

Work was halted on Secret Project 3B, which as it turns out, won’t remain secret forever after all.

And, if you are so inclined, here are some buy links for the Girl paperback: Barnes and Noble IndieBound

Or, like Stephen Colbert says, you can always go to the store, and click on the clerk.

Okay, to sum up…share something about the Girl of Nightmares paperback release and tweet or tag me in it or just tell me you did it in the comments here and I’ll giveaway some. Come see me in Texas and we’ll hang. Dylan sings, and dragons are go. Until next time, folks.

    Everyone who has read this loves it so much, and now it is out in paperback. Need to get a copy of this book in my life šŸ™‚

  2. Beeeeej

    I still can’t believe that is the book series that brought us together and formed a friendship. See. You have no one to blame but yourself for this.

    1. Kendare Blake Post author

      I have no regrets about our friendship, Beeeej. That girl Ash, however…we may have to do something about her.

  3. Lea Krnjeta

    It is great that is out in paperback. I cant wait until it gets translated to Croatian, Anna dressed in blood just came out and it is a hit in the Croatian reading community šŸ™‚

  4. Paige Marie

    Think I’m the first guy to comment. Absolutely loved the series, can’t wait to own a copy of Girl of Nightmares. Sucks that I can’t go to Texas, but have fun!

  6. Erica

    This book is my absolute favorite. I got it from our library, and the minute I got my hands on money, I went to the bookstore, and then they didn’t have it! I’m really, really excited to start reading it, and please, please draw my name!

  7. Dane

    Hi Kendare!

    I am so happy because of this. I have read english and croatian edition of Anna, and I still wait your books to be translated on serbian language. You have so much fans in Serbia!

  8. Nathan Saunders

    I have just finished Anna dressed in blood and can’t find a local book store with a copy… One book store told me they had one in stock and then ‘couldnt find it’ when I went to pick it up :'( just about to order it online and wouldn’t you know, I stumble upon this?! :O fate? maybe? O:)

    Regardless of the drawer, I thoroughly enjoyed my read of Anna dressed in blood and will absolutely be getting my hands on girl of nightmares one way or another šŸ˜€

    Finally, in an attempt to be funny… here is the first thing I heard upon entering the staff room at lunch time the other day:
    “What do you call a man with no arms and no legs, in the ocean?”

    Random post over,
    Nathan šŸ˜€

        I can’t believe I spelt draw wrong… ‘drawer’ -_- that’s like, an insult when posting on an AUTHOR’s website, my apologies for my grammatical error :$ … I was clearly still in the process of waking up O:)

    How I wish I could attend those library event thingies.. They don’t have that here. Tsssss!
    Hahahahaha! I’m so glad you don’t have baby dragons.. You’ll probably spoil them with three-year old children. Tsk!
    And YAY for the paperback release of Girl of Nightmares! šŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Kendare Blake Post author

      I would so spoil baby dragons. They’d be so fat with three year old children that they couldn’t fly.

  10. iesha

    me and some of my friends love the first book which is Anna dressed and now we could read the next book

  11. Lauren H

    Hi there! Very pretty website. Your books are amazing and I think I’ve read each of them in one sitting. I just wanted to let you know that we aspiring writers admire you!

    My collection of nearly 1,000 books is in desperate need of a book by the name of Girl of Nightmares. Turns out it’s not a very common title… šŸ™‚

  12. Lauren

    Dang it. I found this post one day late. I’ve already read both of the Anna books and really want to reread but I got them from the library and that’s too much work so I’ll cave soon and just buy them. That was a really long sentence.

  13. Jessica

    I absolutely LOVED this series but the ending of ‘Girl of Nightmares’ made my bawl. I envisioned Cas and Anna together at the end. Despite the sad ending, the book was AMAZING!! But will there be more for Cas? Is this the last book to the “Anna” series??

    1. Kendare Blake Post author

      There may be more for Cas someday, because I miss that kid. No idea whether Anna would make an appearance in anything, though. We’ll have to see what happens.

      Thanks for reading! And bawling! Glad you enjoyed the books.

    Hi, LOVE your books but unfortunately I can’t seem to find a copy of a girl of nightmares at any of my local libraries. I would love to own a copy. I think you’re an amazing author. Keep Doing what your doing, Your great at it.!!!! Hopefully there will be a movie soon! Love Ya!!

    1. Kendare Blake Post author

      Hi Sandra! Thank you for reading! I’m so glad you like the books. Unfortunately, the Girl of Nightmares giveaway is over now. But, if you ask your local librarian to track down or order in a copy, I’m sure they would help you find one! Librarians are excellent like that. And requesting books from your favorite authors is always a great way to support them. Thank you for looking!

    1. Kendare Blake Post author

      Hmm. Well first off, hi! And thank you for reading! I’m so glad you liked Anna. Now about Girl of Nightmares…most any bookstore will be able to order a copy for you. Just ask one of the booksellers! They love to make sales and support their stores. Or, you can also order it online from many bookstores, or, if you need to ship internationally, The Book Depository ships worldwide for free!

      Bonus, if you want a signed copy, you can order from one of the stores I visited on tour. Just check the Events page on my website and pick your favorite store.
