Insert Witty Blog Title Here

Some fun stuff:

I got a message from Paul Durham the band Black Lab today. I use their hit song "This Night" in the book trailer for Letters to Elise, and he likes it. But he also wanted me to let people know about their big radio launch for their new album Two Strangers (which I bought months ago, because it's awesome, and you should buy it too).

So, you can get "This Night":  here  and learn more about the band here: http://blacklabworld.com And you really should. I've mentioned them before on my blog because they really are an excellent band. Check out the song "Ten Million Years" if you haven't yet.


And here's the trailer for the video, with "This Night" on it: 




Also in fun news:


I took a fan made quiz for Hollowland on Goodreads, and I totally got one wrong. Some of the questions were hard. If you want to see if you can beat my score, check it out: here.


On a related note, hopefully within the week, I'll have a blog announcing release dates for a bunch of books, including Hollowmen (the sequel to Hollowland) and Swear (the final book in the MBA series).


And this song is my current obsession (at least for today).

  3. Dang it, I missed 2. I said Beck instead of Sommer because technically he was the 1st them left behind, even if he was a diversion. And I missed what the name of the virus was.

  4. Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere...but what program (or person, if you hire someone) do you use to make your trailers?

  10. Amanda, Can you tell me something... I just watched the trailer for Letters to Elise and found a book after that called Honalee (I think that's how you spell it) It said it was to be released last year but I can't find it. Did you change the name of another book? Thanks for helping!

  11. I have the same question as Stormy and J. Jones. The trailer is BEAUTIFUL (and I've fallen in love with the song) and I'm desperate to know who made it for you/what software you used if you made it.

    Thanks :)

  12. I'm terrified to get any Black Lab, only because I have their song Keep Myself Awake on the Buffy soundtrack. It's one of those strange bits of music that just crushes me emotionally.

  16. I LOVE Black Lab. I have never commented on your blog, I mostly just stalk... er enjoy your blog posts but I had to say that. Especailly since they were one of the few bands I could listen to last night. I was having one of those evenings where all of my music distracted me from my writing. All I could listen to was Black Lab, The Young Veins (odd) select tracks from Owl City and The Postal Service. I must have listened to Ten Million years, nearly ten million times. With out Black Lab I probably would have just continued tweeting nonstop about nothing what so ever, and wondering if I should have dyed my hair purple instead of atomic torquoise.

  21. Hi Amanda,

    I think you're really cool.
    And thanks so much for writing your books!

    I loved "Letter to Elise."

    I posted a blog about it to help get the word out to people: http://hiddensecretwisdom.blogspot.com/2011/05/it-wasnt-his-first-love.html

    Hmm. that's all I have to say.

    thanks for sharing your favorite song, too. I like it.
