Greetings, Minions! I hope your summer is as dark and gloomy and spooky as it can be, what with all the sunshine happening. Here’s a little something to perk you up, in case that little black rain cloud that hovers perpetually over the Minion Horde as we cackle in delight isn’t sparking with as much lightning as it usually does. (WOW. THE SENTENCE WAS VERY LONG.)
The third and final book in The Slayer Chronicles (THIRD STRIKE) is now available for pre-order! It’s headed your way this February 20, 2014, but you can pre-order it now HERE.
The description, to whet your palette:
In the final book of THE SLAYER CHRONICLES trilogy, Slayer Joss McMillan is assigned to his hometown to track down and take out a murderous vampire... Read More
Minions, you’ve been so patient – far more patient, I might add, than your Auntie Heather is normally capable of. So very patient! But your patience is about to pay off. I have the cover art for the third (and final) Slayer book. And the title. And I’m going to share them with you now. And then I will implode from the awesomeness. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
The title for Slayer #3 is THIRD STRIKE! And here’s the fab cover:
But there’s more! I’m going to share a peek at the prologue with you right now! (Before you ask, I still don’t know the official release date, but should soon) For now…here’s a glimpse at what’s waiting for you (and Joss!) in THIRD STRIKE:

Minions! You know how I’m holding a conference about bullying and what we can do about it? One with AMAZING YA authors and lots of awesome? It’s called Less Than Three, remember?
Well…I have excellent news for you.
Tickets to Less Than Three are now available! But you’d better hurry…because they won’t last.
At long last, Minion Horde, I can tell you a bit more about what Auntie Heather has been up to behind the scenes!
As most of you probably know, Auntie Heather grew up being terribly bullied. Because of this—and because of the bullying that I have continued to witness over the years—I have made it my life’s mission to do what I can do to combat bullying. I speak at schools and conferences. I do what I can to be a caring ear to those who are trying to find a way out. And now…I’m holding an anti-bullying conference that you are all invited to attend!
The Less Than Three conference will be on October 19, 2013 at the lovely Spencer Road Branch library in Saint Peters, Missouri (which is very near to Saint Louis, Missouri)... Read More
For quite a while, Minions, several of you have been asking me for a sneak-peek at the graphic novel of EIGHTH GRADE BITES. And for various reasons (most of which having to do with Auntie’s insanely busy schedule), I haven’t given you that.
That is, until today.
Tomorrow, EIGHTH GRADE BITES debuts in graphic novel form! I’m so unbelievably excited, Minions. It’s been a very long time coming, and the end result is simply gorgeous. So to celebrate its impending release, here are a few sneak-peek goodies!
To start, the amazing cover, followed by a sketch of Vlad! (To see images full size, simply click on them)
And lastly, a peek at the inside!
To order a copy for yourself, you can wander into your local independent bookstore, order a signed copy through Main Street Books, look for i... Read More
