The big winner of Evernight Contest #1 is — Jennifer Marie! She’s already received her Barnes & Noble gift certificate, to spend on all kinds of lovely books. Thanks to absolutely everyone who sent in questions for the FAQ. I have tons of questions to answer now, and a real true Frequently Asked Questions Update will be on the website soon.
But what’s new on the website right now? Check out the brand-new Evernight wallpapers! Download, display, enjoy. Soon we’ll have icons and LJ banners to match. And if you’re a teacher, librarian or somebody else who wants to get a bunch of people together to talk about vampire books, you will also find a downloadable PDF with discussion questions. Let me know what you guys think!
And now, for Evernight Contest #2:
I will soon start work on the fourth book in the Evernight series. As you guys might know from my website, I love to put together a soundtrack to write to — a different one for each book, although a few tunes remain the same. So right now, I’m looking for new music to write to. What songs remind you of your favorite vampire stories? Or are just cool songs, period? I need love songs, hard-driving rock songs, quirky songs, the whole gamut. And who better to ask than you guys?
The contest rules: You enter by suggesting a song or songs, either in comments here on my LJ (please include an e-mail address here if you have no LJ account) or through the Contact Claudia form on my website. Just give me the artist and the title of the song, and I promise to check it out — and I have no doubt some of the songs you suggest will end up on my personal soundtrack.
Because there’s no way you guys can automatically know my taste, or what songs I might already have picked out, I will randomly choose one winner from all the entrants. That winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to either iTunes or Amazon, wherever you prefer to buy your music.
So let me hear it, guys — what songs should I be listening to?
