Longtime fans will know from interviews (and probably from talking to me at signings!) that one of the ways I create positive energy in my writing space is with candles. My ex-students (WAVING TO ALL MY EX-KIDS!) can tell you I always had a candle lit in my classroom, even when The Administration at SIHS (ugh) didn’t appreciate my attempt to create positive energy in a high school classroom.
So you can understand how excited I am to announce that TODAY on Amazon the first of the House of Night candle collection is available! I have partnered with a good friend of mine, a local business owner in Tulsa, and we are creating magick with candles! The first five available are beautiful ritual pillars! Each has a symbolic design inspired by the HoN and drawn by my good friend and tattoo artist, Aura Dalian. (Aura is also illustrating KALONA’S FALL!)
The pillars are infused with essential oils chosen by me to represent the five elements, air, fire, water, earth, and spirit. I hope you heart them as much as I do! And stay tuned, there will be more awesome HoN inspired candles to come! p.s. I’ve signed bookplates and included them with each of the sets! Oooooh!

WARNING: Has some spoilers for “Reveled”
yeah they do! cool pick
i haven’t heard anything new. as far as i know it’s still in the same place (looking for a director, has a script, no cast) i don’t think it will come out this year. i would say earliest is 2015. Pre-production can take a long time, filming, and putting it all together still has to happen
FOR SURE! i asked on her blog and will post a pic.. maybe an edit with a description? ;)
I wish I could remember! I looked it up but I couldn’t find anything :/ I’ve always pictured them having something wispy like air yet having death incorporated somehow. I’ve always pictured bat wings or something… Does anyone know?
Get excited! Next week we have a reveal for you!!! Hint: it has something to do with our very own fallen warrior.

When she reached the cathedral Neferet commanded the threads to pause - to allow her to take in the perfection of her choice. The building was truly magnificent. It glistened in the rain. The upward spires of the main tower looked like teeth. The smaller spires appeared to be upraised hands, sharp with talons, their metal surface slick and wet and ready for her ravage.
"Release me! Allow me to be seen!"
The cloud of magick dissipated. Neferet settled silently to the pavement. “Come with me, my darlings,” she told her threads.
"Our fast is over. Let us gorge ourselves as I deserve!"
Neferet climbed the many limestone stairs as Darkness, like the train of a queen’s coronation mantle, flowed behind her. She glanced up. Statues jutting from the outer wall were golden gods astride rain-washed chargers. They seemed to bid her welcome.
Below them, carved over the three-peaked doorways, were men bowing.
"To me." She spoke to the silent statues. "You bow to me." Staring up, Neferet read the words written beneath each of the three groups of worshiping statues: THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONG-SUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS; FAITHFULNESS, MEEKNESS, SELF-CONTROL.
Neferet laughed. “This is going to be easier than I thought.”
Naked, Neferet entered the church, choosing the door that held the word LONG-SUFFERING. Within, the walls were painted a muted pink that reminded her of blood diluted by a wash of tears. She thought it a perfect color. Turning to her left, she followed a curving hall until she came to the main entrance of the sanctuary. The doors were closed. Neferet smiled fondly at her threads of Darkness. “Yes, do please open them.”
The threads obeyed her.
Neferet stepped within the large, oval room. A hymn was just in it’s last few notes, and as they drew out the aaaamen, Neferet took the opportunity to appreciate the setting before she was noticed. It really was a lovely sanctuary. Though with the pale violet velvet cushioned seats and the art deco stylized stained glass windows decorated in colors of blush and lilac, she thought that it looked more like one of the ornate theaters that so proliferated in America at the turn of the last century than a church. Its round, tiered seating tapering down to a central stage was obviously created more for drama than worship.
Neferet smiled, enjoying the irony.

"You’re silver. That reminds me of moonlight, which tells me you’ve been touched by Nyx. But you’re also a buttery yellow color, like the light of a small candle."
"You do have a flickery yellow light inside your moonlight light… It’s part of your uniqueness-your warmth… it’s small and hidden, because you keep how warm and good you really are hidden most of the time. But that doesn’t change that it’s still there."
-Hidden, (Shaylin describing Aphrodite’s colors)
"When you choose this symbol, it means that no matter what you lose in your life, something better will replace it."

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m more than ready for cooler weather! Oklahoma is getting chilly enough at night for me to have a fire in the fireplace in my office! Don’t you love the smell of piñon wood? I sure do! As you can see, Superman is standing guard over my treddesk - I better get back to writing REDEEMED! Here’s wishing you a warm fire to snuggle up in front of!
