Revenants Week starts today!



REVENANT WEEK STARTS TODAY!

We kick off the first week with a Character Profile Reveal of one our favorite Revenants!

Head over to Moirae (the fates) Book Reviews to know more about



We still have 8 characters left to be revealed on the tour! I know you're waiting for Vincent so I suggest you drop by @ Fiktshun tomorrow to know more about him!

Watch out for more Character Profile Reveal to know more about your favorite Revenant Characters!

I suggest you wait for Jules because he's just drool worthy!

Meanwhile on a more exciting news Kirkus reviews Until I Die!

Here's a post made by Amy on her Facebook page
Okay, the review I was so excited about was posted last night: Kirkus. Yes. Kirkus gave me a good review. THE Kirkus. The guys who made fun of Vincent's abs in their review of D4M, Book 1. (I mean, how dare they? He can't help having rock-hard stomach muscles!!) :)

But with UNTIL I DIE, they actually were pretty complimentary. And "pretty complimentary" for Kirkus is basically the equivalent of a marriage proposal from anyone else. So...HURRAY!!!!!

The thing is...I only saw the pre-publication review, which I can't show you because it possibly changed before it was posted last night. And, until 2 weeks before the book's release, Kirkus's reviews are subscription only. So if anyone out there is a librarian or is in publishing and has a subscription to Kirkus, send me the review and I will post it for everyone! WOO HOO!!! *wipes sweat from brow*
credits

I know that Amy has been posting about this review and I'm glad to know that Kirkus find Until I Die pretty good. You guys need to read the sequel! If Kirkus has good things to say about Until I Die I'm 100% sure that you guys will LOVE every minute of it!

Happy Birthday Amy Plum!

Today we celebrate a wonderful occasion! It's the birthday of our beloved author Amy Plum. So I did a little research (Big Thanks to Google) I found out how to say Happy Birthday in French! Lets all greet Amy a Joyeux Anniversaire!

Joyeux Anniversaire! Joyeux Anniversaire!
Joyeux Anniversaaaaaire! Amy Joyeux Anniversaiiiire!

and in the occasion I gathered some of Die For Me fans to make this celebration spectacular!


 Jena @ Shortie Says
 Can you see what she's pointing at? it says To Catch a Revenant (plan)
I hope she doesn't plan to catch Vincent from Kate ;)


I totally loved DIE FOR ME! It's refreshing and unique and oh-so-romantic. Seriously, I'm not a zombie-lover BUT what can I do? I love the Revenants! And yeah, I'm a fan! So what does a successful, remarkable and best selling author wants for her birthday? I hope we know… and maybe we can be your genies or something :) Happy birthday and God bless you more in many ways!

Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I decided to take five to make up for this short birthday message. Happy, happy birthday Amy Plum! Thank you so much for creating Kate, Vincent, the whole world of Revenants, and most of all for existing. XOXO from the Philippines!
P.S. Please excuse my lack of artistic skills.

Revenant Central is here!

REVENANT CENTRAL IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!

With the opening of the site I think you're probably asking yourself what is this site for? I hope you find time to read a little story. I wish to share you the reason of creating this fansite.
Have you ever experienced rereading a book that you totally love soon after finishing it the first time? I guess it happened the moment I read Die For Me. I was talking about the book with my classmate and constantly thought about it for a long time. I had the sudden urge to read more of the story that Amy Plum created. It felt like I was meant to read this book and pledge to love it Until I Die. I think what I like most about the whole story is that it's just unique and extraordinary. The story of Kate and Vincent has got to be one of the most romantic and sweetest love story I've ever read. And mind you, I was really obsessing about Vincent.
With that I had the idea of doing a fansite, a fansite dedicated to Amy and her book/s. I wanted to create a site to discuss about Amy Plum and the Revenants. I want to share to the whole world the story of Kate, Vincent and the Revenants and how awesome Amy Plum is as a writer. 

Follow us on Twitter @RevenantCentral

 REVENANT WEEK
