Not all dreams are sweet.
For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody- notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can't tell anybody about what she does -- they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant....

The Third Weekend
The Third Weekend
Ahhh the weekend, while it's never quite long enough. Isobel was up nice and early again. I don't think she quite understands the concept of the weekend and that you're supposed to sleep in. Cynthia, yesterday, was telling me that she got up at 11 on Friday and figured that it was high time to wake up Nicholas. I'm going to be glad when she gets to that stage. I'm thinking I might have to head down to that fabric shop on Hastings and pick up some black fabric to start making her room a little bit darker and hope that helps her stay sleeping in the morning. I suspect she's a little like me where the light change is what wakes her up. First thing about this picture...holy crap did I burn/tan!! Comparing it to the previous photo in the Stay at home Dad photo I am so much darker. Sadly I didn't get my dad's aversion to burning I just got his potential skin tone. It's kind of funny that last year Brandi and I went for a walk for the exact same amount of time and the aristocratic white girl was fine and the half native olive skinned guy burned and hella-peeled....sigh. At any rate we went for a walk Saturday morning before Magda showed up. Sea Wall of course, it's so nice there that it's hard not to go someplace else. There's lots of sun exposure followed by lots of shade. Also the baby slept for a chunk of it so she got a little bit of a nap in. Magda got to our place around noon and we shot the shit for a while before heading out for shopping. She got a Macbook and a mouse as well as some random bindery stuff. We got some scrapbooking double sided tape so that we could finish off one of our collage photo frames as well as the first season of Trueblood which we've heard is good. I also grabbed a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I tried to read the original Pride and Prejudice but only got maybe 2/3s of the way through it. Perhaps this will make me finish it. Also I saw the BBC adaptation of it while reading the book which kind of made me lose interest in it. We ditched Magda near her bus stop and then headed home for some Friends season 10 action. We're nearly done it and once it's completed we'll start Trueblood. Also Isobel went to sleep at the unheardof hour of 7pm. Taking advantage of the situation Brandi and I finished off putting the photo collage together. It's all ready to hang up now. Sadly the next day we paid for it. We should have just gone to bed. Isobel was up at 4:00 and basically ready to start her day. I was able to get her to sleep for another hour but then she totally woke up and was all "Lets do stuff'. Brandi let me sleep for another hour before Isobel's crankiness forced me from bed. We cuddled a little bit and then got ready for her swim lesson. Since our friend Robyn's spouse is out of town, she's due in a month, and it's her birthday on Tuesday Matty suggested we do something at her place today. We drove out to White Rock with the baby in this little blue number (for which she had her first nap on the way there) and played with Mason, Brian, Matty, Robyn, and the little unnamed baby fetus. Many snacks were had and we managed to get through most of a game of Agricola without Mason (who's 2 and change) freaking out too much. Brandi totally won. My plan of holding off doing the wood stuff didn't work too well. Next time I'll have to try something else. As we were wrapping up the game Isobel started getting really tired and fussy so we quickly wrapped everything up, had a slice of Black Forest Cake and hustled home. She napped the whole way home (like an hour) but was still really whiney and crying when we got home. We stuffed her face with squash, hucked her in the bath, threw her on a booby and down she went for sleepy time. It's now 8:48 and Brandi's just finishing up some food for Isobel for the freezer. I'm going to try and get her to bed as soon as she's done with that...odds are though she's going to want to at least read this...perhaps I shouldn't have written so much >_<
My Sweet Baby Boy, Blacky!! Please Get Better, As This Is Heartbreaking To See!!
My Sweet Baby Boy, Blacky!! Please Get Better, As This Is Heartbreaking To See!!
Took another capture of Blacky today, as all this week we are having sunshine , but we are now into winter 1/6/2011... So the mornings are cold with heavy fog and you wake up to 1degrees Celsius, and only reach up to 5 degrees Celsius during the day... So each morning i give Blacky small amounts of the "coconut oil", and i brush his fur each morning so he cleans it less.... He also get fresh water and a small amount of biscuits for the day..... He has been eating and drinking... And he is sleeping parts of the day , but still woken up by the coughing he is trying so hard to bring this S@#T up, but like me its very hard at the moment... The coughing has reduced but nonetheless its still plays havoc on his breathing... I know a few of my friends who have commented on my boy are spot on with Blackys sickness... I heard from Heather and he does have kitty flu, that's equal to humans flu and he also has a virus in his system too... So once the goopy stuff comes up his coughing should reduce then hopefully never return... So with sunshine , love hugs and kisses and million prays Blacky should get well.... So the support all of you have shown him so far is what is making my Boy fight harder, and for that im so greatful to all of my friends... Cheers Michelle..... :) But not so much for me now as the nasty head cold that making me sick has also gone bad to my chest and lungs now, my voice is going on me , still sneezing pretty bad, but my headaches have died done now!!! I cannot sleep at all now as like Blacky my breathing at night time is worse and cannot lay down , so at times im on the lounge nursing my boy till his coughing starts.... So i havent been able to leave this unit... Poor Champaz hes laying down on Blackys sick bed right now while i type this out, he looks so cute... cheers Michelle and Blacky and (The Healthy Cat) Champaz xxxxxxx.. UPDATE: At 6.57pm.... 2/6/2011.. BLACKY BACK AT THE VETS.... I had to take Blacky back to the vets today, as hes got worse again... I was in the computer room and Blacky was in the lounge room, heard him coughing so i went and checked on him, and found him sluched over the arm chair, i called his name no response so i shook him as he wasnt breathing, i got him back then rang Jason at work for the car..... So i get to the vets after 2pm, and i got to see another vet named "Catherine" she examined Blacky after i filled her in. So hes on another course of antibiotics called"Vibravet" its a broad spectrum antibiotic tablet that im to give Blacky 1/2 a table each day till next thursday the 9th of June for a follow up... And she asked me to record his coughing for her and tonight well yes he's been coughing so i got some but on my phone it sounds tinny i hope she can get the idea from what ive got... So if hes still like this next week she is going to order xrays on his chest and lungs.... I've got her worried now!! So Blacky is asleep under my table till woken by the next round of coughing.... And now my doctor wants me to have xrays on my chest as he could hear rattling from me, but i need Blacky sorted out first!! Very worried again when will this roller coaster end.. Michelle :( ANOTHER UPDATE... At 11.46pm.. 2/6/2011... Blacky has been coughing for quite a while now and i don't like it.. Im really hopeing that this new antibiotic works and fast as i dont know how much more he can handle right now.... Champaz keeps coming and checking on him, but when he coughs thats it he splits... I think Champaz is missing Blacky very much as at night time and some times during the day they feral for a while and now nothing!!!! Its very sad to watch Champaz in this unit lonely, and for Blacky to be in hiding all the time in a room that really cold.... So another draining night, so to all mine and Blackys friend good night or good morning, hope you you are all well.. Michelle :( IM OFF FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT< BACK TOMORROW!!!!!!

Read an excerpt for Gone.

A Note to Readers from Author Lisa McMann

Writing Gone, knowing it was the end, was so difficult that I procrastinated quite ferociously. I knew that once I started, I'd have to go underground like I always do when I write a book--I just attack it full on and write until I'm crooked and crazy every day for a month or six weeks or so, surfacing to order takeout or absent mindedly say hello to my children and husband. But this time it was different. Not only would it have to be a perfect ending to a trilogy, but I'd have to attack it without transferring my own sad feelings onto the pages. I needed to be in the right place in my head before I could start.
Finally, one day in August 2008, I could procrastinate no longer. I sat down for five weeks, wrote my heart out, and surfaced again with a finished draft. All I knew is that I loved the ending. I cried through half of it, but it felt good to me. And I was so glad to be finished with the hard part--there was no way on earth that I could ever do that again. I was overjoyed to go to the editing stages, and I polished it up, nice and shiny.
My agent read it. "I think you'll need to make some changes," he said, "but let's see what Jen has to say."
"But the ending!" I cried. "The ending! Isn't it great?" I didn't want to hear about the other stuff.
"Sure, the ending's great. Let's wait for Jen." I was certain Jen would love it. I was certainly wrong. It wasn't good enough.
It took me four days to finally get up the courage to read through the editorial letter, and then I cried for four more. And then I had to face the truth: Jen was totally right, and I was totally wrong. My last hurrah wasn't strong enough. I had been holding back, not wanting it all to end. And though she didn't say it outright, I knew what had to happen. Not just some tweaking. Not just a thorough edit. Gone needed a full rewrite. A do-over.
And so, with only three weeks of solid work time before I was to leave on the Fade tour, after all the tears were cried out and I had my determination back, I found a theme song for Janie--Dido's "Here With Me." I turned that song on full blast--it has this awesome pounding beat--and I closed my eyes, playing it over and over for an hour or more, picturing Janie. How she'd feel after the thing with Durbin, how she'd really feel once the dust settled on the green notebook. And then I turned off the music and started from scratch, but this time from a very raw place. No more holding back. And I wrote that futhermucker again, with all the grit and determination it needed to be a survivor. I never wanted to say good-bye, but I've done it twice now. And the second time felt incredibly good and right. I hope you think so too.
A year later, I'm so excited for Gone to hit the bookstores, but I haven't been sitting idle. I'm on to new adventures and fresh beginnings with new characters. Cryer's Cross is my next young adult novel. It's a stand-alone paranormal thriller with a side of creepy and of course, a bit of romance. No dreams this time around, but there's definitely something unexplainable going on. Seventeen-year-old Kendall lives with her parents on a potato farm in a tiny community in Montana, where nothing bad ever happens until Jacian Obregon comes to town and a ninth-grade girl goes missing.
Additionally, I have a few other books in the works with Simon & Schuster. Again in the young adult department, slated for spring 2012, Dead to You is an emotional thriller about a missing boy who finds his way home after being gone nine years. And for my first foray into the world of middle grade, I am so excited to share with you The Unwanteds, a dystopian fantasy about kids who are exiled from their homeland when they display signs of creativity to a hidden world where they are trained to use their abilities and hone their magical skills. Look for this one in fall 2011.
