P.C. & Kristin Cast News!

P.C. and Kristin Cast, authors of the popular House of Night series are coming back to Toronto to promote their new book Hunted.

Hunted is the first of the series to be released in hardcover, and hits bookstores and library shelves March 10th. I've been a fan of this YA series since it started with Marked- these vampyre novels for readers 15 and up are original, sexy, and fast paced. They are great for older readers of the Twilight series, as well as reluctant readers (books one and two (Betrayed) were selected as 2008 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers by the American Library Association).

Listed below are the dates and locations that the authors will be appearing while in Canada and I hope you'll pass along this information to any of your patrons that are fans of this series!

I'm planning on attending the event in Burlington (tattoos AND cats!) as I didn't get to meet the authors last time they were in town (their trip was shorter than expected as their original flight was cancelled because of a hurricane in Texas).

Wednesday, March 25th @ 7:00 PM
INDIGO Manulife, 55 Bloor Street East, Toronto
- There will be giveaways, raffles, a DJ and a Q&A with PC + Kristin
- The authors are being interviewed onstage by an editor from FAZE magazine

Thursday, March 26th @ 7:00 PM
Chapters Woodview Place, 3315 Fairview, Burlington
- There will be a henna tattoo artist on site to give tattoos
- There will be a wiccan practitioner who will cast a circle before the event begins
- There will be cats for petting or adopting
- Authors are being interviewed on stage by Indigo’s own, Jennifer Shannon
- There will be a Q&A with the authors after the interview
- There will be giveaways and raffles

If you can't make it to these events, be sure to check the blog the week of March 30th- I'll be offering up the chance to win some signed books!
