Twitter Tuesday - Andrea Cremer

We've been following, Andrea Cremer, one of The Tenners for a while now on Twitter. Imagine how thrilled I was when I spied these tweets from Andrea's publisher:

If Becca Fitzapatrick recommends Nightshade, it definitely gets my attention. So I headed over to Andrea Cremer's website and I found this synopsis:

While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.

Then I clicked over to Andrea's blog and read through her Q&A post. Here's my favorite answer:

Q: What part of your novel did you have the most fun writing?

A: It's a tie. 1) The mythology. I study the history of witchcraft, but taking that history and creating an entire world around it was one of the most wonderful things I've ever done. I love the history and myth of NIGHTSHADE and I really hope readers are as drawn into as I was while weaving it from the first threads. 2) The kissing. There is lots of kissing and *coughs* more nookie goodness in NIGHTSHADE and WOLFSBANE. I'm a romantic at heart and I love being swept away by passion. My characters get swept. Often.

We all know how Mundie Moms love "sweeping". Nightshade will be released on October 19, 2010. I know it seems so far away, but I pre-ordered it because I like to plan ahead.
