wanted this week

I did a little guest post over at Pennyweight, taking part in Elise's regular 'Wanted this week' feature. Thanks for having me Elise, it was a pleasure. Please click here for all the image credits.

One more lovely thing to share with you all ...

 'theorizing twilight' book collection

my essay in the 'theorizing twilight' book collection

Yep, my copy of Theorizing Twilight has arrived. I should be getting used to this 'being published' thing, but I will confess something to you: it's still an enormous thrill to see my work published and to hold a book with my words in my hands. I hope that thrill never dies down, it makes all my stress worth it. If you'd like to read my essay, along with all the other great essays in this collection, it's available from the Book Depository, Amazon, McFarland's website, and numerous other stores.

P.S. Don't forget about my 'Why I Adore the Night' Challenge. I've received some wonderful submissions already, I just have to figure out a suitably appreciative way to present them.

Caitlin Rose said...

oh what pretty things, this is just suited to how I'm feeling this morning. As for your being in print, congratulations and I think its a good thing that you still feel thrilled! I hope you always feel thrilled when you have something of yours published.

I love your lists of wanted things! :)

And CONGRATS on getting published! You should be very excited, though it must feel surreal as well to actually be holding it in your hands. I'm interested to read it, so I'm going to try and get my hands on that book :D

congratulations, hila! i really look forward to reading this book. i was definitely fascinated by twilight as a cultural phenomenon when it first appeared, and i think it is important to analyze it as such. i wonder what your thoughts are on the new HarperTeen editions of classic love stories (Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, etc.) which have distinctly twilight-ish covers, presumably to catch the attention of a young audience (sort of "tricking them" into reading the books?)

I want number II! What a great list. Congratulations on your essay being published!

Tana said...

'wanted this week' represents quite a nice collection of things(i`d like to have some of them :)! congratulations on the book, Hila!

for heaven sakes I can't get over seeing my name in the weekly company e-newsletter. Of course you are excited to be published!

Do you have an e-reserve we can read, or should we buy a copy for ourselves (not such a bad thing. A feminist response to twilight? I'm in.)

hila said...

nancy: I do, thanks :)

caitlin rose: thanks so much, you're so sweet.

cloudykim: I hope you like it!

yelena: oh I think that's very slick marketing, but I don't really like it. Those twilight-esque covers for Wuthering Heights also made me gag.

the line sheet: thank you!

primoeza/elizabeth: thanks elizabeth, I really appreciate it.

fickle cattle: oh I want it too!

elise: thanks again for having me!

olga: aww, shucks, thanks :)

tana: thanks!

sam: I don't think it's available online, plus I'd be in incredible trouble if I posted any of it online, so your best bet is to buy the book. Luckily, it's not too expensive :)

Ooooh congratulations on getting published!
Your "wanted" items are lovely, I really like the dress with the bows.

hila said...

thanks so much!

Sundari said...

congrats on getting published! And the visual round up looks terrific. I quite like all those kits and sets you found (writing, painting, and is it tea?). Also that Jane Campion book looks like something I would like to get.

nancy said...

hila said...

sundari: thanks! and yep, it's a little teapot, it's quite cute, huh?

nanacy: thanks so much!
