A few days late, but worth the wait

Hey, I can rhyme!


So on Monday for my Marketing Post about Something I Love Love and Adore, I was going to do a whole raving review of the video game Assassin's Creed, and how The Boyfriend and I are so madly addicted to it that we named our cat Ezio (which greatly confused the vet), and how when I found out at a GameStop that the 4th game will be released in November, I promptly squealed and shook the magazine the announcement was in, much to the shock of the GameStop employees (note to gamer boys everywhere: GIRLS LIKE GAMES TOO).

But I decided to hold off on that post, lest you all get to see my nerdy gamer side.

Turns out holding off was written in the stars, as today I stumbled across a FANTABULOUS post by one of the cutest, most talented writers on the blogosphere: Kasie West. Apparently she got this deal, see ,with a wee house called HARPER FREAKIN TEEN, for her YA book that I have heard so many people rave about I bet they reacted to its publication much like I reacted to the AC #4 release announcement. Squealing and computer-shaking.

So go squeal and shake your computer over her announcement, because PIVOT POINT is going to blow. your. mind. Luckily Assassin's Creed 4 comes out before PIVOT POINT (most likely) will, so I shall have something to occupy my time while I anxiously wait for this book I have heard oh so much about.

Squee, Kasie!

Very exciting stuff. I love good news.

Kasie West said...

Aw, Sara, you're awesome! Thanks for the shout out. And I'm sure those gamer boys were pleasantly surprised that a hot girl liked games as much as they do. Now I'm curious about this Assassin's Creed and will now go google the guts out it.

Congrats again Kasie! :)

Jill Hathaway said...

Hahaha, the title made me think you were pregnant!

Congrats, Kasie!

Dude, I've seen the ads for Assasins Creed! It looks awesome.

Ben and I love to play Xbox, but we love Star Wars and Lord of the Rings games, so that makes us quite a bit more nerdy. :)

see Jill's comment. hahaha!

Congrats, Kasie. I've actually heard of Harper Freakin Teen. Awesome news!

I'm so ridiculously thrilled for Kasie I can't even squeal loud enough. I'll spare you the all caps, though. ;)

I am in love with your cat. Just sayin'. His assassin assaults just speared my heart (and my compy) and now my own cats are sadly lacking. =*[

p.s. I realized that Infamous may only be a PS3 game. Do you have PS3? Because Infamous is totally worth having a PS3 for. ;)
