Prepare to be Tested at our YA Fangirl Double Feature event!

Join the Aussie East Coast VAFamily & Intiates in a fan run event for a double feature of VA: Bloodsisters & Divergent!

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 10.41.07 am by jeminabox

We've got fans flying in from interstate, and _maybe_ overseas to join us!

Why? Seeing 2 of our favourite books come to life @ the cinemas amongst fellow fans will be just AWESOME

PLUS we'll have some goodies for you to take home!

And if that's not enough - we are very lucky to have a special guest, Bloodlines trailers' "Adrian Ivashkov" - Nic Wheeler!

We're running this event the week after VA opens, BUT on the weekend that Divergent opens so we can get the best of both worlds (though I'm sure we'll all be heading to the movies on opening night for VA regardless ;)

If you're interested in attending, please RSVP yes through our Facebook Event Page

If you aren't on Facebook - you can check out herroyalguardian's Event Page for updates! 

We'll be providing more details as we get them, and expect to be requesting payment for tickets/event in early 2014 so we can ensure all tickets are booked & no one misses out!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us on the FB page, or tweet @guardianliz, jeminabox or royal_Guardian 
Hi hi lovelies!

I've posted a poll to my Facebook page as I have an Artists Alley table @ Supanova Pop Culture expo in Brisbane this November.

Looking to get an idea of what prints you'd like to see available, whether @ Supanova or in general online.

Morganville Vampires Paper-Dolls News!

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 4, 2013, 5:56 AM

Yay! (delayed - my bad!) Morganville Vampires The Series news! I got to see the print mockups of the Morganville Vampires Paper-Dolls that I did for Rachel Caine’s Kickstarter campaign a couple of weeks ago! They look fantastic & I’m so excited to see them printed & in play! This is what Rachel had to say about them:

The paper doll book is HILARIOUS. I love it so much. Layout’s done, and it’s now into the printing process. If you ordered a print version, you will NOT be disappointed. (We’re printing extras, by the way, and we’ll be selling them as we go along …)

This is the cover photo of the book!

I can’t wait to get my copy, and even more so to see Morganville Vampires series develop! :dance:

Exciting times!
