Re: Young Adult series?

Hi Sandy.
I'd love to! The first short story, MADISON AVERY AND THE DIM REAPER, is out in the PROM NIGHTS FROM HELL anthology under Meg Cabot. It introduces Madison Avery, a high school student who suddenly finds herself, well, dead. It opens up an entirely new world to her, with a new set of problems. Harper Teen is going to do a three-book series, the first of which I believe will be out this spring. I'm working on it now. ;-) It is targeted to the young adult market, but it should be a good read for just about anyone since the only thing I took out of my work was the sex. (grin--Kim

Hi Kim,

Can you tell us anything about the young adult series you're working on? I need more of your books to read. :-)

Thanks!

Sandy

Re: Our Questions for Kim

I think she stopped because she knew Rachel wouldn't be comfortable living with her if she knew Ivy was still practicing. The funny thing is now that Rachel knows a few things, she's more comfortable when Ivy practices then when she doesn't.

You bet, Sarahn. But you're going to have to keep guessing until 2009 when the seventh book comes out. (evil author grin)

Re: Our Questions for Kim

So Ivy stopped for 3 years because Rachel didn't like it? Do you mean back when they were partners? And has Ivy been hunting Rachel over the years they've been friends?

What was the meaning behind the earrings? The ones Ivy wore in FOC.

Re: Our Questions for Kim

Ivy didn't stop because Rachel wouldn't like it. She stopped because she didn't want to scare Rachel as well as Ivy trying to make a break from vampire politics. If you read the short story in DATES FROM HELL, it gives you a pretty good idea of what's going on in Ivy's head. And yes, Ivy stopped shortly after meeting Rachel, though Rachel was only a small part in the decision. I'm not sure when Ivy started hunting Rachel. I don't think Ivy knows either. It just sort of happened.

Excellent question, Tonic. I put Ivy wearing earrings for a real reason. (grin) Why do you think she started wearing earrings?

Re: Our Questions for Kim

Because she likes Rachel and is mimicking her? Doubtful but maybe. Giving Jenks a place to sit? maybe. I don't remember what Ivy's ear rings were like. I'm a guy and don't pay attention to accessories sometimes. :smileywink:

Re: Our Questions for Kim

Maybe Ivy sensed that Rachel might try the whole blood sharing thing? I DON'T KNOW! Maybe it was because Ivy was out of town and out from under Piscary's protection? Maybe the earrings acted like Jenk's red bandana? Or it could be a sign of her rank in the vamp world? I just don't know. I don't even have good guesses. Will Ivy tell us?

Re: Our Questions for Kim

Would Rachel really kill herself if Ivy and Jenks died? Or was she just caught up in the moment back in that conference room? Do they mean that much to her?

Re: Our Questions for Kim

This question has been bugging me for a while. In the first chapter of DWW, right before Rachel tags the leprechaun, she was speaking to a human patron of the bar and in order to scare him she spoke using a Hollows accent. And I cannot recall the subject of a Hollows accent ever being mentioned again. What is a Hollows accent? Is it an accent that everyone associates with Inderlanders? Or is it a regional thing, having to do with the fact that the Hollows is located in Kentucky? I suppose the question should be: What did a Hollows accent sound like to you when you were writing it? Thank you.

Yup, Tonic has it right. They were gold studs. Understated.

Good guesses, but nope. And Ivy won't tell why she's wearing earrings, or changing her hair style, or anything like that. ;-)

Re: Our Questions for Kim

I don't think Rachel was even thinking that she was going to die. Sure, she had a thought about it, but she still thought at that point that she was indestructable. Either that, or she wasn't thinking at all. Much of her decision was focused on getting rid of the curse, not "They're dead, I have nothing to live for." It was more, "They're dead, I have no reason not to risk myself further if it will prevent a species war."

Re: Our Questions for Kim

Hi Kaiyotea.
I always thought a Hollows accent was more the cadence of speech rather than a drawl or crispness. Specific pacing of words.

Re: Our Questions for Kim

Hi Kim,

Not a FDM question, but wondering: What made you decide to write out side the Hollows universe? What was it that drew you to YA? And when will your first full length YA be out?

Thanks,
Vicki

As a part 2 to Sami_M's question, Do they all start with 'J" and why?(if they all do) Is it a Pixie thing?
