For all our loyal Caster readers everywhere, don’t worry! Kami and I are still hard at work on the Beautiful Creatures Novels. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Kami had her own news to share in the near future — but of course, that’s just speculation on my part And even if she did, you’d have to wait and hear it from her…!
If you need me, I’ll be here doing cartwheels up and down the street in front of my house.
