Have you ever wondered what Ann’s Fall Ball formal looked like? Having trouble imagining the caverns below the Mogdoc Citadel? The Mogdoc News Network has now spread its influence to Pinterest.

Welcome to the YA Indie Carnival. This week’s topic is Friday the 13th. Do you suffer from Paraskevidekatriaphobia (the fear of Friday the 13th)? If so, here’s a superstition refresher for good luck on one of the year’s unluckiest days.

12: When salt is spilled, toss it over your left shoulder quick to prevent the bad luck that spilled salt brings.
Happy Easter everyone! As has now become tradition, I present the 2nd annual Easter egg post. This year’s post is all about “Easter Eggs” (those little hidden treasures) in my newest book, Midnight Child, Book 3 in the Midnight Guardian series.
So, here are the stories behind the story. Enjoy!
