Party with Amanda Ashby

Partying all the way from New Zealand, please welcome Amanda Ashby!

Amanda's another TFC sister, and the author of YOU HAD ME AT HALO, and ZOMBIE QUEEN OF NEWBURY HIGH. She worships Joss Whedon and David Boreanaz, and makes killer coconut, cream cheese, and cherry muffins. Her next book, Fairy Bad Day, hits the shelves June, 2011.

Here's official blurb for the latest, ZOMBIE QUEEN OF NEWBURY HIGH.

A prom night Mia will never forget...

Quiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. Rob-super hot football god-has asked her to prom! Life couldn’t get any better. Enter Samantha -cheerleader queen and Miss Popularity-who has made it quite clear that Rob should be her prom date. Mia is desperate to make sure she doesn’t end up dumped in front of the whole school. So with prom in just a few days, she turns to Candice-her holistic, hypochondriac best friend-and decides to try a love spell to make Rob stay with her. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus on her whole class instead, and she is their zombie leader! At first she loves all the attention. But when she learns from zombie hunter hottie Chase that her classmates will actually try to eat her in a few days, she’s not too thrilled. She’s sure she and Chase can figure something out, but in the meantime, she’s suggesting that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.

Amanda's Reading:

Your compound value numbers are sixteen, twelve, and ten.

is a number of honor, of faith and of self-confidence. Ten can be a fortunate number, which indicates that one’s plans are likely to be carried out – however, it is symbolized by the wheel of fortune, which can signal a rise and fall in success.

Twelve is a higher octave of the number three*. It is considered to be the ancient number of completion and is an indicator of great understanding and creative capacity. Twelve can also foreshadow one being sacrificed for the plans or intrigues of others.

(*Three indicates someone who is artistic, social, friendly, creative, sensitive, ambitious and intuitive.)

Sixteen gives warning of danger of accidents and defeat of one's plans. It should be carefully noted and plans made in advance to avert its fatalistic tendency. Sixteens should trust their intuition to avoid hardship.

Your name vibration is one.

The number one indicates someone who is creative, independent, original, individual. Ones are good self-starters and natural leaders. Ones show interest in the arts, such as singing, acting, writing, painting, and love to curl up with a good book.

Her response:

The name vibration is totally me - apart from the singing, because seriously no one deserves to hear my sing!!!! As for the compound numbers, unfortunately they also sound like me - most of the time I'm pretty balanced and on track but I can also be my own worst enemy and do own a couple of fatalistic tendencies (which I bury under piles of sugar and cute little bunnies!!!!!). Anyway, I also want to take the time to wish you a very happy book release!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Amanda!
