Movie update

Want the HoN movie? Let them know: Just wanted to keep you guys in the loop. WE HAVE NO UPDATED MOVIE NEWS. Yes, the series has been optioned by Davis Films of the Resident Evil franchise for more than two years. I AM WAITING IMPATIENTLY ALONG WITH MY FANS, so refer all of your frustration, questions, casting choices, dreams and wishes for what could be total awesomesauce if, as Stevie Rae would say, "The dang things ever get made!" to my producer, Samuel Hadida. For those of you who don't Twitter, here's my producer's Facebook page: Yes, it's in French (I know at least one French fan who can post in that language! Waving at Geraldine!). Don't let that stop you! Your comments will translate just fine. If you want to see the HoN book series become a movie series, post and tell them! Want to audition? Tell them! Want them to film in Tulsa? Tell them! All I can do is sit back and wait for them to get motivated. Can you guys motivate them? I KNOW YOU CAN! XXXOOO PC p.s. Let me know if you hear anything!

The winner!

Kristin announces: The winner by 531 votes is Nerd Herd design #2! Thanks so much for your help! More designs are in the works and will be available soon on! Yea!! XXXOOO

HoN Candles are awesomesauce!

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!

Cayman house open for your vacay! Oooooh!

As longtime fans know, I consider Grand Cayman Island a second home. Kristin and I have been going there for twenty years - back when we had to save our pennies to share a tiny hotel room for 4 days and eat sandwiches from Hurley's (Cayman grocery store). As the years passed, I purchased a lovely home on the beach in Cayman, and since then have spent lots of time there. I've been trying to remember how many books I finished while I was looking out at the turquoise Caribbean (and watching Cammy trying to swim to Jamaica), and I think the number is four! Anyway, I've been so busy that I don't get to Cayman as much as I would like to, so recently I decided to open my amazing home as a vacation rental. You guys can check it out through the Facebook link,, as well as through the AIRBNB link: If any of y'all go there for your holiday, post pictures! And enjoy - it's a paradise! Big wave to my Cayman friends at Books And Books! XXXOOO PC

Bonnie update!

Well, since the draft horse classes are short at the fair this year, Bonnie's big costume class is probably going to go off early.  So if you plan to cheer her on, be at the show barn about 9:00ish.  I'll be scrambling not to miss her!!

Another T-Town Event!

Hi Guys!
If you're out and about T-Town

Thursday, October 3rd, stop in the Equality Center (621 E. 4th Street, Tulsa, 74120).  I'm the featured artist for their monthly art show.  The exhibit opening will be from 6:00-9:00 pm, but the show will hang all month.  What I've done is transferred my photographs to canvases, and then embellished them with precious stones, crystals, etc., to create a mixed media art form.  Most of the pieces are for sale, and I will be giving away a signed set of all of the HoN books as a door prize!  Oooh!  Hope to see you there!

Bonnie getting ready!

Back to working on REDEEMED!

Awesome artist!

Through my cool horse trainer I found the amazing artist, Dorota Kudyba (  She does equine dream art from photographs.  I commissioned her to do several pieces for me, and I thought you guys would like to see some of them.  Here's the first of Anjo and me.  I asked Dorota to make me a Valkyrie-like warrior.  Ooooh!  What do you guys think?

p.s. Dorota is wonderful to work with, and very reasonably priced.  And it's soooo fun to see her transform your photos!  You guys should definitely check her out!  (It's a great gift idea!)

Moving into the conclusion...

This weekend is Mayfest in Tulsa - a fabulous downtown gathering of artists, musicians, and food. I was walking around last night and glanced up at the Mayo Hotel. CHECK OUT NEFERET'S PENTHOUSE! Looks creepy! And since I'm working on the conclusion of REVEALED right now, this picture absolutely goes with the mood of the end of the book. Chaos! Death! Destruction! Oooooh!

Ooooh! A Prism Finalist!

I'm so excited to announce that my novella, POSSESSED, which was published in the AFTER MOONRISE duology with my buddy, Gena Showalter, has finaled in the fabulous Prism Award! What a lovely surprise! Winners will be announced at the Romance Writers of America National Convention in Atlanta in July of this year. I haven't been to RWA Nationals in years, but I'm going to try to get enough writing done so that I can get away for that weekend in July! Fun! See you in Hotlanta!

A New Girl!

Hi Guys, Longtime fans know that I've had two Scottie dogs FOREVER. The fabulous Cammyman - my Wheaton Scottie who loves the camera and the ocean and "helps" me write all my books. You can check out the Cammy Cam in my archives. (In the HON series he's Damien's cat!) My other Scottie was less photogenic but equally wonderful. Her name was Chloe Cast, better known as Clo-clo-ba-bo. Tragically, my precious girl died unexpectedly in February. Following HoN tradition, I turned Chloe into a vampyre's cat and immortalized her in REVEALED. Yes, you'll need major Kleenexes to read that part - I certainly did to write it! She also has a major character role in one of my Goddess Summoning Books, GODDESS OF LOVE. Yes! Chloe did think she was a cat! And a lovely cat at that... Recently Cammyman and I decided we were ready to welcome another Scottie into our lives! So, I'd like to officially introduce my readers and friends to Claire Bear! She found her forever home with us yesterday. She seems more photogenic than Chloe, so you may be seeing a Claire Cam as well as a Cammy Cam in the future. Sending out love and light to all of you who have lost a beloved pet... PC

Spring in OK

It's becoming a lovely spring in Oklahoma. My wisteria are blooming like crazy - the red buds and dogwoods, azaleas, tulips and narcissus have painted the city with color. It's a perfect time to visit Utica Square and Philbrook and Woodward Park. Just keep an eye out for Neferet! Rumor has it she's on the loose! Back to REVEALED... XXXOOO PC
