What Stace had to say on Friday, July 24th, 2009
DEMON INSIDE copies arrived!

And OOOOH they’re so pretty!!

So guess what?

I feel like giving one or two away.

Yes, I know they’ll be in stores Tuesday. And you’ve all preordered them, right? But this will be a SIGNED copy, and if we work fast we can get one to you before they hit the shelves.

Here’s what we’re going to do. In comments, tell me your favorite moment from PERSONAL DEMONS. It can be anything; a line of dialogue, an entire scene, whatever. Just let me know what it was.

I will randomly pick a winner or two–depending on how many entires I get–and will take the books to the post office tomorrow morning, to be shipped overnight mail.* So you’ll have them Monday.

Now. In order to do this, I have to have your address by tomorrow morning. I will announce the winners this evening; let’s say by midnight. So be ready! It’s a short contest, I know, but hopefully will be fun. Um, and hopefully people will want to play.

So…let’s get started!

* Yes, I will ship to other countries, but not overnight. Sorry. I’m generous and excited, but I’m not rich.

    Stacia,,,, I would love to win one but I do admit that I have yet to read PD. I really am intrigued with Megan and Grey and hope to get ahold of this soon… I have read a few excerpts but that is only a taste and I am going to see about picking it up this weekend so I can be ready for Demon Inside on Tues…. I will be there asking politely at the book stores that they have copies of both on hand…. :)

    I’ve had so many books (over 200) on the tbr pile and I’ve read so many books since I read PD I can’t recall the scenes clearly enough. There was one in the boardroom that I thought was way cool, but it’s hazy in my memory. I’ll be re-reading before reading DI, though.

    What’s sad is that I have so many new books I haven’t been re-reading hardly at all for the last couple of years. (I keep telling myself I’ll have old age for that, lol.)

    Best thing about Personal Demons? That it is sitting on my mantle on my “to read” pile that my wife keeps telling me to move to the den?

    Or how about before getting a chance to read it seeing that you are on Twitter and that you accused Mark Henry of showing signs of dementia… 😉

    I loved the brothers too but since this one was already named I picked another:

    “It is. You promised me first.”
    “Oh my god, what are you, a Klingon? So I went there. So I accepted an
    offer and I said I wouldn’t. So what? What are you going to do, cut
    out my tongue?”
    “Unfortunately, no. I’m not allowed.”

    I love Klingons and I love Star Trek references. And who doesn’t love to read about cutting out tongues.
    Would love to win a copy.
    Oh and congratz on the release!!!

UNHOLY GHOSTS has a Ghostbusters reference that makes me grin like a dork every time I think of it. Oh, and I just put a FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH reference in the third Demons books, too. Heh.

    I loved personal demons and would adore a copy of this book. My fave moment was the big revelation about what Megan had done to the Yezer (won’t say more for those who haven’t read it) and her subsequent relationship with them. 😎

    I did want to comment though, and say how awesome this book sounds, and that it’s gone on my ‘to read’ list. In fact, I bumped it straight up to the top five want to reads!

    OK, I guess not a legitimate entry, since I just saw Mark’s comment about your book he just read being the “best urban fantasy, evah,” so I ordered Personal Demon. (‘Cause I trust Mark like that for some reason.) But consider me a brand new fan-pending, easily molded to your will! A copy of The Demon Inside would certainly mold me all firm and not likely to ooze away!

    The only moment that I can think of was when Megan and Grey first met in person. It’s clear she’s not impressed (even though he’s super hot) and she’s not afraid to show it. I think that’s one of main reasons why I liked her so much in PD, ’cause she’s honest and doesn’t take shit. :mrgreen:

    I actually have 3 fav moments from the book. Going after zombies w/a plunger was pretty great. Then like many others, there’s the 3 brothers helping Megan out w/hair and makeup, a classic. My fav scene w/Megan and Grey is actually at the end of the book when after all the climactic drama has ended and Megan was totally pissed at Grey for the mean things he said and he cursed and then got out and left. The scene that occurred between the 2 of them out in the hallway was really sweet.

    Can’t wait to read the 2nd book!

    Hi :)
    Thanks for a wonderful unexpected contest.
    Just got back online and found out about it!
    My first favorite part of Personal Demons was when it was made clear to me that she had a talent for seeing things others could not. The radio call-in vision was a hint. The session with Kevin was a better hint, but this clinched it:
    Something hovered in the air over the right shoulder of the woman at the next table.

    The shadowy form lacked definition but as Megan watched she caught a flash of what looked like dark green before the color disappeared. The shadow stayed, rippling at the edges but hovering in place.

    The woman didn’t notice, but Megan stared transfixed. Blurry edges of darkness reached out and passed over the woman’s face, then slipped back into the semi-solid mass.

    The image made her gorge rise, but she kept staring, unable to move or blink. If she looked away, would it disappear? Or would it move, leaping to one of the other diners, as if trying to gain entry to someone’s body? It felt so wrong, so . . . evil. Her skin prickled and itched.

    While the woman laughed and ate her food, the blurry form twisted and darted around, staying in the same space but writhing as if trying to burst through some kind of membrane

    This made me read on with keen interest.
    What would happen next?

    :)
    I adore your writing!
    Love from Northern Ontario

    I enjoyed the brothers, too, if that redeems me. 😛 I thought they were very funny, and so not what one would expect from demon bodyguards. The entire book was a refreshingly unique take on demons.

    Hi Stacia! I loved Personal Demons, it was so original. I liked reading when Megan first starts to see everyones demons (in the studio taping) and figuring out what they are, the descriptions are great! I found your book by chance looking at B&N on line and I’m so glad I did!
