Della’s Confession

RebornShhh…can I talk to you? It’s me, Della. And I just have to tell someone. May 20th, my first book, Reborn, is being released in the U.S. Don’t tell CC, but I’m actually getting excited about it. I know, I give her a hard time, but during Reborn, she gave me the hardest time of all. I mean, she put me in some really tight places—and she left it up to me to get out!

Of course, CC tells me that it’s not her fault.  She blames you.  Yeah, she says the fans will only read my book if I’m constantly nose deep in chaos.  Now, what’s up with that?  Don’t get me wrong, I know that I hate reading about boring, perfect people, too.  But I could really use a little slow down.

And guys?  Don’t even get me started on them! Steve is great, but sometimes he drives me crazy. So we had a great night on our FRU mission, but that doesn’t mean I want to be joined at the hip with him. Yes, he can be really sweet, but then he can turn around and be a jerk.  Then there’s this new guy at Shadow Falls Camp, and Burnett tells me I have to work with him.  But sometimes I don’t like the way he looks at me, and other times, I like it way too much. What’s a vampire to do?  I mean, I know he’s keeping secrets.  I can just tell.  Can’t you tell when a guy isn’t telling you the whole truth?  And this guy, he’s definitely holding back.  Claims he wants to get to know me, that he likes me.  Right! You all know that I’m not that likeable.

Besides, I don’t need anyone else in my life. I’m too busy and I need Burnett to take me seriously as an agent. A relationship would just get in the way. So, I need to keep my distance from ALL guys, but CC keep tossing me together with one of these two very hot guys. It might sound too good to be true to some of you, but I don’t want it. I’m fine on my own. And I’m going straight to CC’s mind and tell her what I think.   Well, I will just as soon as I get my head wrapped around exactly what I’m going to say.  I don’t want to be there any longer than I have to.  Because let me tell you, her mind is a scary, scary place.  It makes dealing with ghosts a cakewalk.  She’s got thoughts of murder, and some totally spooky settings running around that mind of hers.  And she can envision some pretty terrifying stuff.

Anyway, today I’m going to take a few questions about CC.  I mean, she’s always answering questions about me. So now it’s my turn to dish on her.  Now’s your chance, if you have a question about CC, post it, and I’ll answer a few of them of every week.  And don’t get too personal.  She ain’t gonna let me tell you the really good stuff.

Oh, and we’ll give away two posters today.  The new Shadow Falls: After Dark poster.  We’ll give one away to an international fan and another to a U.S. fan.  So make sure you tell me in your post where you live.

  1. Wow!! Della!! I can’t wait for your book to come out I’m really excited and good luck with two guys. My question for CC is do you have a favorite genre when it comes to reading and if you do what is it?
    p.s I live in the US

  2. Ha I love Della!!
    Do you ever have one guy in mind for a character and as the story goes decide you know what I think this guy fits better?

    I live in US!

  3. Hang in there Della! It;ll work out in the end, for sure.
    My question for CC is: What is one of your favortite books?

  4. Oh Della, you will figure it out. I can’t wait for your book to come out.
    My Question for CC is: Do enjoy writing more from Della’s prospective then you did from Kylie’s prospective of things?
    (I live in Canada)

  5. Della, you are just too awesome for words! 😉

    What do you do when you are in a really bad writing slump? Like when you know where your characters need to go, like from 1 to 2 to 3 but you’re stuck at 2.4…how do you get out of the funk to get the characters to place number 3?

    • You keep writing, no matter what. You can fix bad writing, but you can’t fix a blank page. Writing is a profession, so you have to carry on.

  6. Hi Della and CC, can’t wait for Reborn to come out. I’ve already made space on my bookcase for it, even thought there is still a little time to wait for it. My question for CC is: When writing Shadow Falls, did you have the series planned out, or did ideas come to you when you were writing?
    Love Kellie,
    Birmingham, UK

  7. What do you do when you have writers block? Sometimes I find when writing, I know the start and the end of a book but I don’t know how to write the in between. For example, you know Della is going to hear a scream in the forest and investigate by the end you want Della to gain a clue of an event to occur. How do you write the in between? I have issues writing the in between and connecting the dots.

  10. hello is it sad that I know the anwsers to a lot of these questions from past blogs??? here is a question for you 2 if that is ok…
    1. What was up with the wolf bowing to Kylie? It happened in books 2 and you never explained it???
    2. Little while ago you had a contest about your next hero what happened to that series?? Don’t get me wrong I love Della a ton and am soooo very happy that you are writing from her pov but it just makes me wonder??

    Love you by the way I love in Boise Idaho USA!!!

  11. My question for CC is: Are you going to have a book signing in Southern California in the near future? (I live in the U.S.)

  12. How is life of a writer? Do you get to sleep in everyday and stay up all night? Does it sometimes get boring? How do you get your creativity flowing!? Also, how did you come up with the names of all the characters?!
    Ps- i live in ‘merica baby!

  13. My question is how do you get paid as a writer and where do most authors work (home, office)? I really want to know because I’m thinking about becoming a writer.

    I live in US.

  14. Hi Della! I think you’re totally awesome and I can’t wait to read your story! 😀 The question I would like to know about C.C. is…what was high school life for her? Did she know she wanted to be an author back then? Was she part of the hierarchy at her school or did she rebel against that and let herself be friends with whomever she wanted to be friends with? Last but not least…what type of movies does C.C. like? I hope you answer my questions Della! ^_^

  15. I just wanted to let you know that I will see you in April CC Hunter. I’m going to the book signing in Tempe, Arizona and I cant wait! Hope to see you soon 🙂

  16. Hello Della! You are my favorite character. You’re strong mentally and physically. You know what you want and you go for it! And that’s why you’re my fav! I also love how you will stand by your friends no matter what! Your truly loyal and Burnett and CC are most likely pushing you to be the best! So, with being said, I cannot wait for the new book!! When I saw in the back of Chosen at Nightfall that the world of Shadow Falls wasn’t over I was so happy!!

    My question for you, C. C. Is: what inspired you to become a writer? Was it your dream as a little girl? Or was it something that came apon you one day growing up?

    P. S. I live in the one and only America! Have a nice day/ night!! 🙂

  17. Hey C.C and Della so I was wondering C.C what is the first thing you ever wrote that got published. Maybe not a book but like article or a magazine story? I was also wondering if Miranda will ever get a short story of her own or a series, also what is Miranda’s last name? I’m not sure you ever said it. I hope a win the contest. I live in Staten Island, New York hope you will be coming to NY again one day!

  18. Hm….. My question for CC is if she had to write a different series, 1) what genre? and 2) what it would be about? I live in Cary, NC by the way.

  19. Hahaha Della don’t complain that much, you have 2 hot boys (I’m sure they’re hot, CC wouldn’t match you with an ugly boy) and they’re both so into you! Take advantage of it girl.

    Now my question for CC: Are you into the supernatural stuff? I mean, you wrote books about supernatural creatures but, are you interested, curious or intrigued by them?

    I live in Colombia, come visit us! 🙂

  20. I’m dying to read you, Della. Never thought I’d be curious about how and what makes you fight with Miranda so much.

  21. wow!! yay okay so when you were writting the Shadow Falls series which book would you say was the hardest emotionally to write? and which book was the hardest to write and come up with ideas for? What made you want to write a book series? what was your inspiration? I actually am going to write a book series. i have been coming up with ideas for it and i wanted your to know that you are my inspiration. you and the Shadow Falls series!! so thank you so much for writting such an amazing series and for giving me the creativity and inspiration to do the same as you!!!!!

  22. The book sounds amazing! I can’t wait till it comes out! Della, your gonna be fine, we have to have some adventure in our lives sometimes, right? (Btw, I live in the United States) I’m so excited!

  23. Hey Della,
    I would love to know if she is going to visit Europe and especially Germany some day, cause I really would like to meet her and I’m not sure if I can ever travel to the U.S. but if I can I definetly will stop by when she is reading in a book shop or somewhere else. If she came I would pack my friends amd me in my car and would drive there if it wouldn’t be to far from where I live.

    Hoping for a soon answer

    btw I’m living in Germany and I can’t wait till your first book will be publishe Della I’m so exited to read it that I will get it as soon as it is on sale in English, cause tje two languages I speak are German (mother tongue) and English (the language I feel in love with when I visited Australia)

  24. Hey Della and CC!
    My question is that I want to know if we get to find out more about Della’s sister eventually?

    And I live in London,UK.You two should come visit Europe sometime…

  25. Congratulations on your new book, the cover looks great! I loved the Shadow Falls series and have been looking forward to this new series for close to a year. I do not usually read Vampire books but after reading Shadow Falls I am making an exception for Della because she was a great character that I would not mind getting to know better.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I live in Ohio.

  26. Hii Della! Loved this post and can’t wait for your book! <3

    My question for CC: What inspired you to write something like the Shadow Falls series? And was it that same inspiration that encouraged you to write the Della spin off series? 🙂

    (US) thanks for the giveaway!

  27. What made you want to start writing? Or was it something that you just sort of started and never stopped?

    I live in Canada 😀

  28. Hey Della! 🙂

    I always wanted to ask C.C. if there was a character in Shadow Falls she originally had other plans for or that turned out different than planned during her process of writing. I´m really looking forward to read more about you, Della.

    I live in Germany, the land of beer and leather trousers 😉

  29. First of all I love the Shadow Falls series and cannot wait to read more of your story Della! You definitely kick some uh em butt ;). I would like to know how old C.C. was when she started writing her first book and what her employment was before she became an author. I live in Utah.

  30. Della your so exciting. And I would love it if CC was able to throw 2 hot guys at me. 😉

    If CC could be anyone else in the world (fictional or real) who would she be?

  31. I am in iove with your series I swear! And I kinda miss your style sincne last year when I’ve finished reading chosen at nighfall !! I live in Lebanon(Dont beleive what they say about it it’s an amazing country)

  32. Della this other guy seems a bit sketchy… then again aren’t all guys? Well there’s the few that aren’t. It doesn’t matter that they are hot well ya that helps too. But it’s who they are that counts. As for c.c.’s mind, I have a quote: “something that sometimes drives me hazy; am I Or are others crazy?” So basically aren’t we all crazy to at least one person?

    United States

  33. Can you make a short story about kylie and lucas from Lucas’s perspective? I really miss hearing all about them and want to read some more of my favorite shadow falls relationship!

  34. I have a question! When you write a book how do you find a publisher, like how do you get in contact and talk about actually publishing it?
    From Fort Wayne Indiana USA to you! 🙂
