A Double Dose of Graverobbers Fame


Michele Bardsley’s latest novel, Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home, now in bookstores everywhere, contains a moment in Chapter 17 where the heroine decides to read my own Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary). In Chapter 18, we discover that she liked it. She doesn’t actually say “Wow, this book was even better than the hot sex scene in Chapter 16,” but you know she’s thinking it.

And Karen Wiesner’s non-fiction book From First Draft To Published Novel, also now available in bookstores everywhere, uses an excerpt from Graverobbers as an example of effective dialogue, along with a dialogue-free version of the same excerpt to show how much it would suck if I’d written it that way.

Sweet!
