Cover reveal: Homecoming

The first thing I said when I saw this cover was: "Wow." Isn't it gorgeous?

I don't know if I mentioned it or not, but I'd subbed two short stories to Decadent Publishing's 1NS line, and both were accepted. This is one of them.

This cover is perfect, from the emotion of the couple to the lovely yet alarming reds, which hint at the suspenseful section toward the end.

Can't wait for release day!

Blogging schedule

On another note, blogging's going to be sporadic over the holidays. Two more guest posts at author friends' blogs, and that will wrap it up for this year. But there's lots more planned - check the Interviews and Guest Blogs page for more info.

I'd planned a Doomsday party for Dec. 21, and created a new group on FB for the event. I hope you'll join in.

My heart's not really in it after the tragic shootings in Connecticut last week and I'm trying to tread lightly, but if anything, it makes me prouder that the character I crafted is Death with a heart - the kind of entity I'd want to come for my soul when it's time. And my Death has a soft spot for children, too. I know it's only fictional, but I have to believe the angels who came for those kids helped ease the transition for them. It still breaks my heart.

I'll be skipping the Wednesday post, by the way, but will have one Thursday, and another Friday.

Breaking news - happy dancing!

I'm a nominee in GraveTells' 2012 Readers Choice Awards! The category is Most Engaging Author. No idea when voting starts, but I'll be sure to let you know. :)

What a great way to start the week!
