Friday the 13th Fun

What are you doing to celebrate Friday the 13th?

by Brittany Geragotelis

If you know me (or follow my blog), you know that I go cray-cray over Friday the 13th. As far as I'm concerned, it's a holiday--and one of my favorites (I mean, which other holiday happens more than once a year?!?!)! So, first, I want to say Happy Friday the 13th! Help celebrate this Freaky Friday by inviting your friends over for some creepy food and even creepier movies. That's what I'll be doing tonight.

Now, on a note far less creepy, I spent Wednesday at Blackberry's Playbook Experience Event at Chelsea Market in NYC. I had so much fun getting to know some of the people at Blackberry (especially my new gluten-free friend, Farina!), as well as meeting a few of the other authors there (like the GORGEOUS and sweet Sophie Flack, author of Bunheads). And then, of course, I had the opportunity to do a reading of What the Spell?, which was beyond cool.

Just in case you weren't able to make it, take a look at what the day was like for me!

I had no idea what to expect as I was on the cab ride over to the event!

I am in LOVE with my cover!
Paparazzi shot!
Me with actress Jessica Grant. You can see Jessica in the upcoming film "Indelible" with "90210" star Tristan Wilds!
Plenty of places to sit and read.
People were inspired by my success story.
Me with Blackberry girl, Farina. We had a lot of fun bonding over gluten-free food at Friedman's Lunch.

These twins couldn't wait to get their hands on copies!
This little one was totally magical.
Even celebs like Jessica Grant are psyched about What the Spell?
It was awesome meeting fellow author and former ballerina, Sophie Flack.

So, what do you think? Wish you had come by?

Exclusive Worldwide Cover Reveal!!!

Oh, happy day!

 by Brittany Geragotelis

Hey guys!

Today, one of the most exciting things in my publishing journey so far is here: My big cover reveal for What the Spell?! I wish you could see me right now (but because you can't, I'm currently running around my apartment, doing my happy dance, and screaming out, "I'm Queen of the World!"), because you'd be able to see what a joy it is for me to bring this info to fans who have made my whole publishing dreams possible!

As for the cover....I'm beyond-psyched about it! I think the model they chose for Brooklyn is PERFECT. She's just like I pictured her and I love her sparkly top. Also, I want to be clear....the background isn't just white. When the books are printed, it will be an opaque color, which fades into silver, and it will be all foil, so it will be super-dynamic--just like the book!

So, without further ado, check out the cover for What the Spell? and then tell me what you think!

Hey all!

So, before you change that web address, I want to ensure you that you ARE in the right place! This is the new home for my blog, Brittany the Book Slayer! Now, ordinarily, I'm not one for change. I like my schedules and I find comfort in the familiar. BUT there are some things that I don't mind pulling a little switcharoo on. For example....I just went to the salon and had them give me some seriously nearly-white blonde highlights. Matt says I look like Storm from X-men. I think it gives my look a little something new.

What do you think of my new white-blond highlights?

And in my upcoming book, What the Spell?, (The world premier of the cover is happening tomorrow!!! Log on to to get the exclusive look! Eeeek!!!) the main character, Brooklyn, is looking for some change in her life. She's sick of blending in, so she uses her magical skills to give herself an extreme makeover. Sooooo, in honor of my book cover reveal, I decided it was time to give my website its own facelift. Something new and fun, classic but different. And this is what I came up with.

Change can be keeps you on your toes and brings a little excitement to your life. So, what do you think? Do you like the new look of my site? Let me know in the comments below!
