Wednesday randoms

Two giveaways to tell you about:
-- At Confessions of a Bookaholic I talk about my "haunted childhood" and you get a chance to win one of four copies of The Revenant, kindly provided by Random House. Wahoo!

-- My Oklahoma friend Jenna Klein interviews me at Fans of Fiction and offers up a signed copy of The Revenant. Yay!

-- My pal Brandi Barnett has alerted me to the existence of Out of Print clothing and goodies. Check out their mission. I purchased the Pride & Prejudice sweatshirt and the Brave New World t-shirt and felt smug on many levels. (A nice sort of smug, though, right? Is there such a thing?)

-- Tomorrow I drive down to Dallas for some shopping the NE/NC Texas SCBWI fall conference. I plan to get INSPIRED! And hopefully meet some new people, if I can crawl out of my shell.

-- I was also hoping to see Dream House this weekend, but sounds like it's pretty lame. In better news, American Horror Story starts tonight, and though I missed the premiere I will get caught up with Bedlam very soon. Maybe October won't be a total loss for creeptastic viewing?


  1. Hello and happy Wednesday! I love those shirts! The artwork is amazing. Book art is always a favorite of mine :) I sorta like the Walden Pond one too.
    And your story of your Haunted Childhood was so intriguing! When I was little, the neighbor girls and I totally talked ourselves into believing our houses were haunted. We'd really get ourselves worked up, and our houses weren't even old. It's interesting too to think about if these things are really created internally or externally.
    Hope you have a good trip! Heather

  2. What a great interview, Sonia! It included questions I'd not seen on others. I like what you said about a future short story....:)

  3. I'll check out the links.

    Enjoy the conference and have a great weekend.

  4. @Heather -- your childhood story reminds me of my friends and I using a Ouija board in a nearly-new house. Did we really think we'd call up some spirits? Actually, the experience was pretty wild and more than a little disturbing, but more likely because our brains were twisted than that there was a ghost in the house.

    @Brandi -- Jenna was a splendid interviewer! And I like to think about Willie 1-2 years later, ya know?

    @Medeia -- thanks, sweetie!
