I've posted a Thursday Thirteen of pictures for my monthly blog at Beyond the Veil. But be warned, those shots are just the teaser. To see the rest of the photos you'll need to follow the link at the end of the article. Enjoy!
About a week ago, carolendouglas asked me to weigh in on the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette's great Cat vs. Dog Mystery debate. I...ahem, Duz couldn't resist. Just got word they posted my--er, Duzie's reply--with book links! Score!
Speaking of good stuff, today I also posted a Thursday 13 at Beyond the Veil. It concerns 13 great characters and creatures mentioned in Fantasy Art Templates. But the real reason you want to click the link are the pictures--the cover and three of the book's luscious interior pages.
Tomorrow, if I figure out how to do it, I'll try to post a very low res version of one of the interior pages of Fantasy Art Templates. My promo copies arrived yesterday, and they are beautiful beyond belief. Even better, earlier tonight crazywritergirl was looking for the name of a specific member of the angelic hosts--and it was in there, along with everything from pirates to giants to snake goddesses. Not only is it gorgeous, the book's a great reference too. Win!
Cheers and smiles,
What's not great is what's happening in her personal life. Her mom is very, very ill. As a result, she's not even thinking about promoting her latest Samhain release, Dragon Storm. So the rest of us at Beyond the Veil are trying to help out. BtV's fearless leader, Carolan, has posted the publisher's blurb and a link to an excerpt. If paranormal menage--with dragons--is your thing, you won't be disappointed.
My Samhain colleagues at Beyond the Veil have put together a really fun, really easy Cool Yule Giveaway. The prizes include lots of book downloads, a gift bag and a Bath and Bodyworks gift set. The only requirement is posting at the blog. You don't even have to post about us. (Well, that's what the rest of them say. Me, I'm not so sure...) And best of all, they'll be awarding the prizes no later than December 22. That's three days earlier than most folks. I'm all about immediate gratification. How about you?
Finally--FINALLY!--posted my monthly blog at Beyond the Veil. In honor of Thanksgiving, I planned to tell the story of my mom's famous Imploding Turkey, but things got a little out of hand and it wound up being a compilation of her greatest culinary disasters--Nagaski Ribs, the exploding spaghetti pot... If you ever wondered why I'm so obsessed with food, this will tell you why. Mwhahahahah!
Hugs and evil grins,
*who promises you'll never look at dead possum the same way again*
But some of the pictures are nice--and the people were splendid.
Now, all that's left to do is email the blackmail photos...er, share some of my image files with my esteemed colleagues before settling back down to writing. I do love cons.
Cheers and evil grins,
The free geisha dance program, which anyone who's ever been to Japan can tell you is a very, very big deal. Man, I love living in DC!
