To celebrate, I am...{drumroll please}

Working on book4!

But I also have a short interview up at Susan Adrian's blog, and she's kindly running a giveaway as well. Yay! 

There have already been some sighting, some pics of my cardboard dumps at the B&Ns emailed to me, and general merrymaking by my family and friends. I had the distinct and rare pleasure of seeing my grandmother go wordless and tear up while reading the dedication. And once she found her voice again, what do you think she said?

"I take it all back."

Ayup. That's my grandma.

More reviews trickling in...

This from SciFiChick.com. My favorite part:

Comic book fans as well as urban fantasy fans would all fall in love with this series. Definitely one of my favorites, Pettersson combines comic book super heroes with zodiac legend, which blends flawlessly into an exhilarating story.

Thanks to Angela for that!

More fun stuff coming from Harper...I'll post some of that later today when I get the go-ahead and the link. They have some exciting stuff planned for next week's release, and I'll post all here for those interested. Note: New events/appearances are upcoming, and my site will reflect those by tomorrow. I'm excited about those opportunities as well, and will blather on about them as they draw nearer.

For now, it's scribble time!

Double whoa:

Summer really heats up this May 27th with the publication of THE TOUCH OF TWILIGHT, the third installment of Peterson's dark fantasy series. There are a lot of characters to keep track of; the Troop, their Shadow counterparts, the lovers, the friends, the rivals, the initiates, the parents...and the city. So stay sharp and pay attention. A Las Vegas native, Pettersson brings the city and its inhabitants to life. A series that borrows from a lot of different mythologies, Pettersson has thrown them all into a pot, stirred it up and come up with a dish completely delicious and all her own.

post potpourri

I confess, I've been spending most of my time hanging with my cyber-homies on my bb, here.

I've also cleared the 100K mark in book4, a little later than wished for, but that's always the case. It's speeding up now that I can see the finish line, and it feels like this thing wants to write itself. I'm just along for the ride.

For the June release (technically May 27) of THE TOUCH OF TWILIGHT, Harper/Eos is giving away advanced bound copies for reviews to readers. If you want to get an early eyeful, go here.

And my first review from Romantic Times is in:

"At the moment, teamwork and trust are in short supply in Pettersson's complex storyline in her Sign of the Zodiac series. Her characters are truly dark and dangerous--the most devastating injuries may be those inflicted on the mind and heart. This is a chilling and intense first-person

Back to work!
