THE HUNT website, widget, and Shelf Awareness piece

Some exciting developments as we move towards publication date!

First, Macmillan has put together an incredible dedicated website for THE HUNT. It's chock-full of all kinds of tidbits of information regarding the book. There's also information about how enter for a chance to win an autographed copy of the book, links to the Facebook page, and all kinds of other goodies. Check it out, especially if you want to read the first 80 pages for free!

Second, Shelf Awareness did a great piece on THE HUNT for their monthly Maximum Shelf issue (in which they focus on an  upcoming title they love). This wonderful spread includes a nice review of THE HUNT, an author interview, and a piece by the St. Martin's marketing department about the history and marketing of THE HUNT. Best part about this nice spread is an interview the awesome New York Times Bestselling author Alyson Noël and I conducted with one another. I've got to tell you, it was so fun to engage with Alyson, and you'll learn lots about our world-building techniques, writing habits, and sources of inspiration. A fun read!

And lest I forget, there's now a widget for THE HUNT (see side margin on right - it's a little cut off as currently displayed). Feel free to use it to your heart's content!


  1. The Hunt was a refreshing new take on the vampire story. Normally I am not a fan of books written in the male perspective, but The Hunt was extremely well done. In fact it has one of if not my favorite male point of views. Gene is intelligent, thoughtful, and resourceful. He has had to live his entire life hiding that he is a human and pretending to be the very thing that has almost wiped out his species. One of the things I found most interesting about this is that Gene sees himself differently from the humans/hepers that are in captivity. He more so identifies with the vampires and sees the humans as them/the others. In this The Hunt presents a very complex view of how we see ourselves and will make you wonder what you would do in his situation. Gene's female counterpart Ashley June intrigued me from the very beginning and kept it up throughout the whole book.
