Brazilian Appreciation Day

How do I love thee, Brazil? Let me count the ways:

1. Your continued support of the Sociedade Secreta series is gratifying and humbling. Your enthusiastic emails and twitters to me and my publisher always make my day.

Oh, and since you asked, Tap & Gown (#4) will be out in October!

2. You make my little authorial dreams come true with your cover of ZvU:

Look at my name up there with Scott’s and Meg’s and Cassandra’s! Oh, Zombies vs Unicorns (um, Zumbis X Unicornios), you are the gift that keeps on giving.

3. Confidential to Brazil: Beijos. You were the brightest spot of an otherwise crappy month in July. Love you guys. You made my month.

And to celebrate my love, I’m doing a Brazil-focused giveaway. That’s right, two lucky Brazilian readers are going to receive signed copies of


And that’s not all. There’s a whole Secret Society Girl prize pack, including Amy’s Rose & Grave pin and a temporary tattoo just like Amy’s real one.

Leave a comment here (on my website) to enter. Contest continues until September 5th. Good luck!

    Hi Diana,
    you made my day with this post. I am the one who should thank you for being such an amazing author and for writing a strong protagonist instead of a dumb one.
    Sociedade Secreta is one of my favorite series and I’m really excited for the final book and for your short story in Zumbis x Unicórnios.
    Kisses (or Beijos if you want the portuguese version): Cibele
