… for the TESS OF THE ROAD cover reveal! I was originally going to show you the new SERAPHINA and SHADOW SCALE covers at the same time, but apparently those require a bit more awesomeness before they’re ready for general consumption. Which is kind of bizarre, to me, because I really liked them already. However, … Continue reading Tune in tomorrow
A thing! I just reached 30K words, which suggests it may be bookish, this thing. The work is going swimmingly so far, which is why I haven’t been talking about it much. I am still utterly convinced of my November jinx, despite 13 days of evidence to the contrary. (THIRTEEN DAYS! Now I’ve done it!) … Continue reading So I’m working on a thing
I’m early for one and late for the other, but let’s just pretend it’s Presidents’ Day and celebrate both together! Here’s the cover for the Brazilian edition of Seraphina, which came out in April: Hurray! I hope Brazilian readers are enjoying the book! And then, coming out at the end of May, we’ve got the … Continue reading A pair of book birthdays
Hello darlings! I know you all miss me terribly when I don’t report in very often, but it’s actually a good sign. It means I’m working very hard on the sequel – and we all want that, right? While I’m occupied elsewhere, of course, news keeps accumulating. I have a few items of interest for … Continue reading A few items of news

Hm. I guess if I wanted to be alliterative, I’d have waited til Friday. I know from experience, though, that waiting begets procrastinating, which begets forgetting, which begets embarrassment, which begets more procrastinating, etc. It never ends. The time for fan art is NOW! I have proclaimed it thus, and thus mote it be! Two … Continue reading Fan art Monday!
Hurrah! Serafina – Das Königreich der Drachen: Band 1 is out today! Here’s the beautiful cover: I really think I should get come cake on these birthdays, don’t you? Hm… I should see about fixing that.
So my father-in-law, who is a big fan of the blues, apparently read my confused gibbering on the subject a few weeks ago and decided to help me out by getting me a nice introductory book. Thanks, Mike! I’m enjoying it so far; I love reading about music, and the early bluesmen and -women were … Continue reading More thoughts on the blues
Hello, friends! I am popping in to say I’m popping out for a week. 2012 got off to an overwrought, melodramatic start – those of you who frequent Goodreads will know what I’m talking about, but it wasn’t just Goodreads. It was everything. My son was sick, good intentions went awry, and I got nothing … Continue reading 2012 reboot
Here’s a nice one at Book Catching. Thanks, Stephanie! (This one may have some spoiler-y info, depending on your definition of spoilers. I don’t think it spoils anything, but I’m kind of spoiler-insensitive) Bloggity-Blog-Blog reviews it for a second time, in more depth. Thanks again, Laura! In other news: thanks to everyone who’s dropped by here … Continue reading More review goodness
