This last Saturday, on June 27th, I got to meet one of my favorite musicians, Colbie Caillat! colbie1I’d included a reference to her and her song Never Gonna Let You Down in my novel Memories of a Ghost, and, when I learned she was coming to town, contacted her agent and told her about the book and asked if I drop off an autographed copy for Ms. Caillat. Instead, they invited me to meet her at the concert, where I could give her the book myself!

She seem genuinely excited to be mentioned in the novel, and said she thought it was “really cool.” She thanks me for the book and wished me luck, and then we were off to see the concert. (Which was awesome!)

It was a great night!

Oh God, Jenny thought, her heart ballooning against her ribcage. Oh God, oh God, oh God! Risking a look back, she nearly ran her bicycle into a ditch but couldn’t see a thing. She had heard the voice, though, mocking and cruel, and knew that it had to be the monster. Pushing past her cramping calves, peddling as hard as she could, she raced toward the hospital.
