Foreign Finds!! (And a fun foreign giveaway!)

I've made some really fun discoveries this week! A package came on Wednesday and this was in it!

The left is the Italian hardcover of Original Sin! I didn't even know that Original Sin (or as the Italians are calling it, Il Bacio del Peccato- The Kiss of Sin) had published in Italy. This is very exciting to me!!! The one on the right (Il Bacio Maledetto--The Cursed Kiss) is the new Italian Personal Demons paperback. In case you forgot, here's the original Il Bacio Maledetto cover:

And, also fun is my discovery yesterday of a trailer my German publisher (Rowohlt) did for Cynthia Hand's Uneartlhy, Alexandra Adornetto's Halo, my Original Sin (Angel Eyes in Germany) and Nora Melling's Shatten Blute (which as far as I can tell is only available in German). Here it is:

Also, in addition to the Italian cover, I found the Spanish cover for Original Sin! (Or, Pecado Original :p)

Not quite sure what Frannie's doing there... Gabe is obviously praying for divine intervention. ;p

The 2012 publication schedule for Original Sin seems to be May 3rd in Italy, July 31st in Spain, and August 1st in Germany. Click the country for the Amazon or B&N buy page =)

And, because you know how I love to give stuff away, here's a chance to win one of these:

Yep! One lucky winner will get to choose either the Spanish, German or Italian translation of Personal Demons! As always, this contest is international. To enter, all you have to do is fill out the form below. One bonus point for leaving a comment about why you want one of the translations. The contest ends next Monday, June 4th at noon, PDT.

Buona fortuna!!

NOOK WINNER! And other winners too!

LAST RITE releases today! I love this series and the characters like they are family. Now my book babies are all grown up and leaving me for the big world. I'm not really sure today if I feel like this:

or this:

I loved writing LAST RITE because I got to write from both my beautiful boy's POVs as well as Frannie's, and I think the story is EPIC. I hope you all read and enjoy the finale to the Personal Demons trilogy.

Two hundred of you stopped by to enter to win your own copies of the trilogy. Thanks to all of you! For those of you who won, CONGRATS! If you didn't, I feel compelled to mention at this juncture that LAST RITE will be available at your favorite bookseller as of today. If you're a bargain seeker, if you buy the entire Personal Demons trilogy on Amazon, you can choose a fourth book for FREE!! It's true! And several entrants said they wanted the audiobook trilogy. You can find that here, at Audible for download or here on Amazon for physical CDs or MP3 on CD. (Then you can swoon with me over Luc and Gabe's voices. *drools*)

First runner up, who has a choice of the entire Personal Demons trilogy on CD audiobook or in paperback is...
