The bad news: I still don't have final, set-in-stone book tour stops to announce to you guys, but it should literally be any day now.

The good news: The wonderful Book Review Maniac has posted a great review of Evernight, and I did an interview with her too. So check those out!

Finally, it's CONTEST TIME!

Although the vampire romance anthology Immortal is finally showing up in Borders and Waldenbooks stores around the country, it's still not available online, and I know that not everybody lives in a region where Borders and Waldenbooks have much reach. So here's what I am going to do:

Send me your favorite quote or line from Evernight, and you'll be entered into the drawing. On Sept. 22, I'll pick three names, and those three people will each win an autographed copy of Immortal!

To answer a few questions that might come up: (1) Yes, I'll ship anywhere, even overseas. (2) I only have copies in English. (3) It will only be autographed by me -- you'll have to check out signings by the other fabulous authors if you want their John Hancocks as well. (4) You can enter by commenting on this post, on my MySpace page or through the "Contact Claudia" section of my website.

Good luck and have fun!
Ok so there are a lot of lines I love but one of my most favorites is:
Lucas swallowed hard, then grinned. "Hi, Mom."

Hope I win and can't wait for the next book!
Then I stared at myself in the mirror. It wasn't as if I'd never paid attention to my body before, but I'd never looked at myself and wondered how somebody else would see me. Lucas would see me, any second. Would he think I was beautiful? I realized that I felt beautiful, that I wanted him to see me. I brushed my hands over my stomach, then down the sides of my hips, newly sensitive to my own touch. The whole time, Lucas was just on the other side of the door. Getting undressed. Waiting for me.
yayy!! contest! *crosses fingers*

One of my favorite quotes:
I need you to believe that. Because I believe in you.

Great review!


"I thought we needed to take cover, To hide from whoever was chasing you, but that turned out to be, uh"-he looked embarrassed-"nobody."
My book is in spanish so... "Me abracé, temblaba de frio y de miedo al pensar en todos esos años, décadas y siglos que me esperaban por delante, cambiantes e inciertos". From chapter 11, just because thats how i'd feel to be a vampire... scared and dizzy because of my looooooooooooooooong life.

Oh this is exiting! I hope i win. :)

I love the whole book but I love the line:
"His voice rough, Lucas repeated,'Someday'"
"All my life, my parents had told me someday blood would be more than blood, more than just something from the butcher's shop they gave me with my dinner."

I think my love for this line springs from the fact that I love the image of Bianca's parents being all, "er... so we're the first vamp parents ever, what do we do?" and picturing her in a tiny stroller with a tiny bottle of blood in her tiny hand. It's precious. And far better than damn Renesmee.
We’ll be together again, Bianca. I don’t know where or when or how, but I know it beyond any doubt. It couldn’t happen any other way.

I really hope i win!! ^_^

A flower the color of blood
Wind howled through the trees all around me, whipping the
branches in every direction. The sky overhead churned, thick
with roiling clouds. I brushed my windswept hair from my face.
I only wanted to look at the flower.
Not to steal what someone has already posted, but I have to agree with the chosen quote...so I guess I'm stealing it.

"I need you to believe that. Because I believe in you."

Okay. I this passage makes me want to bite Lucas, and I've always been a sucker for imagery. So I choose this quote:

"The thick metallic taste of it spread through me like fire, hot and uncontrollable and dangerous and beautiful."

I know, maybe I'm a little too morbid but I love this passage.
My FAVORITE quote is:

"Lucas turned to me, and I let my head loll to one side so that we were face-to-face. The way he looked at me-intent, serious, filled with longing-made me hold my breath. he said only 'Trust me. I know I got that one right.'"

I love the entire book and all of the lines previously mentioned, but my favorite line is near the end when Bianca and Lucas are on the run and she says, "We'd have been better off with a slingshot and Oreos."
I love everyone's favorite quotes! Most of them are my favorite as well. As much as I would like to pick one of them, I wanted to go with a Vic quote, because he makes me laugh! *hugs Vic*

Bianca: "Hey. Have you seen Lucas?"
Vic: "That guy, he's crazy." In Vic's world, crazy seemed to be a compliment. "He cut out of study hall, and I was, like, what are you doing? And he was all, just cover for me, right? So I did, until now, but you're not gonna narc on him. You're cool."

I'm going to have to go with,
"It was the first day of school, which meant it was my last chance to escape."

I LOVE that as an opening line it completely hooked me and had me wanting to know what Bianca had to escape. I also like the fortelling of what's to come in a way.

I'm crossing my fingers to win as we don't have the bookstores that carry Immortal. :(
