Hostess with Caged Graves - Dianne Salerni

The book trailer was featured at You Gotta Read Videos on January 20th. Voting is between the 21st and 28th. Drop by and vote for #20.


Dianne Salerni takes over today on her blog with an interview of yours truly about the Witches of Galdorheim series, writing stuff, and other things. Her lit savvy daughter, Gina, will post her thoughts on Midnight Oil on Dianne's blog on the 27th.

About Dianne:

Dianne's blog, In High Spirits, is always a useful place to find historical information, reviews written by her astute daughters (they know their MG/YA books), and regularly posts First Impressions, where writers can have their first pages analyzed by Dianne.

She's the rags-to-riches story that all writers dream of. Starting with a self-published historical novel, she found herself a publisher for "We Hear the Dead" (Sourcebooks). About two sisters in the 19th Century who bilked the public by pretending to relay messages from the spirit world, the book is based on the real rappers of the 19th C.

She's following up that success with her new novel (another historically based), The Caged Graves (Clarion). As if that wasn't enough, Dianne teaches full-time at an elementary school in Pennsylvania.  Visit her website for more information on her books and where you can buy them.
