A New Cover For A New Name

As much as I love the title "Don't Be Such A Witch".... it's a bit long.

So, after much consideration, and a few one-sided conversations with my dogs, I have come to the conclusion to rename the book. Don't judge.

It shall hereforth be known as (drum roll please!)... Cast. Catchy, I know.
And to celebrate this momentous occasion, I have created a new cover, which I must say, is really purdy. I will try to get my Scribd page updated as soon as possible. But for now, enjoy!

Important, Earth-Shattering News! (sort of) . . .

Earth-Shattering News!
My Dark Love AND My Dark Rescue are now part of Kindle Owner’s Lending Library! Yayyy!

But you may be asking yourself, “So what?”

To that I say, “So what?! So what?! This is only the most awesomest thing to happen since sliced bread!”

What it means for you is that if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can now read my published books for free. Yes, for free!

Now, with all free things, there’s a catch. You have to pay for the Amazon Prime membership, which lasts for a year. I believe the fee is $79.00, but you get a free month trial. But heck! There’s an enormous list of books in the lending library, and if you’re like me and you looove to read, it’s worth every cent!

And since not everyone will want to pay for a membership they may never use, I am also going to be lowering the prices of both books. Effective at the beginning of January, the price of both My Dark Love and My Dark Rescue will be lowered to $2.99 from its current price of $5.99.

I’m hoping that this is enough notice to anyone thinking about buying the books now. It was a decision that I have been contemplating for a long time, but I think it’s necessary.

Thank you to everyone for reading and supporting!

My Angel! of them anyway.

So I was browsing the web, looking for inspiration, and I ended up finding this picture of Toby Hemingway when he was in The Covenant (love that movie!) and it instantly made me think of Lyle for my book Blessedly Fallen. Even the way his eyes are freakishly gold matches my description perfectly--not to mention his platinum locks! What do you think? Is he Lyle-like? 

Speaking of Blessedly Fallen, the book has finally reached 400 hundred pages, of an expected 500. I hope to soon be announcing it's finished! But I'm also hoping a million bucks will wind up mysteriously on my doorstep...we'll see which one happens first. (Please...let it be the money!)

** I don't claim to own this picture, nor the rights to it. Just in case anyone was in doubt. ;) **

After hitting a brick wall (metaphorically speaking), I decided it was time to fuel my brain with more delicious drama in the hopes of once again being back on the road to finishing a novel!

My fuel source: the nearest B&N.
My mission: Part one, Coffee--the frozen frappucino kind, with whip cream, and part two, books with yummy drama (preferably supernatural drama).

With a frozen coffee in hand, I made and hasty path to the teen fiction section and began scouting, mostly picking up only the books with "pretty" covers. What can I say, I'm book-shallow.

Needless to say, I went a little nuts. At first, I tried to hold all the books I'd decided to buy in my hands, but when I could no longer flip through other books because I was clinging desperately to the ones in my hands, I decided it was time to get down and dirty... I grabbed a basket. Oh, but that only allowed me to go even more off the chain. I became a mad, book grabbing machine. If something looked cool, it was in the basket, it didn't matter what the heck the story was.

It only occurred to me that I might have been biting off more than I could chew, or pay for, when my arm suddenly went numb. The basket, which was now loaded, had cut off any blood flow below the point where the two plastic handles looped over my arm.

"Crap..." I muttered, knowing that some--most--of the books would have to go back.

It was a very grueling process of ruling out which book to take and which to keep. I had to judge based on three criteria. 1. Did the book have an interesting storyline. 2. Did the book relate in some way to the kinds of books I like to write. 3. (And this one is very, very important) Was the book pretty.

Though it was hard to part with all those other books, I believe I ended up with seven totally awesome, and pretty, books that I can't wait to dive into--thus giving me a muse-like pick-me-up while I try to write my own.

Let me know if you've read any of these, and what you thought after you were done...please???!
And if you have suggestions for any of my future B&N runs, holla back!

1. Sweep Volume 1 - by Cate Tiernan
2. The Hollow - by Jessica Verday

My Homework! The good kind!

Yay! Votes!

Thanks 4 Voting!

5 votes is 5 more than I thought I would get...awesome!

The book-writing front is beginning to look very promising for the next two-weeks. I will be housesitting for a co-worker...and they don't have cable! It should prove to be good conditions for putting hands to keyboard (instead of pen to paper) and making some headway on the next "I'm a Vampire" book and Feel...since Feel is winning by one

Hmmm...I wonder if she has internet?

Yay! I've made it! One more semester of college down and who-knows-how-many left!

At least for the next three months, my computer will be be used for nothing but writing...and blogging, and the occasional Google search...and maybe once or twice to read those shamefully addictive gossip sites...

But I  will finish another book! Before I go back to school in the fall! Definitely!...I think.

Either way, I'm going to write the crap out of one of my books--probably Feel...or Blessedly Fallen...or Don't Be Such a Witch...hmmm. Decisions, decisions, decisions...

If you have an opinion about which one I should finish first (or try to), leave me a comment and let me know! I'll even make a poll so you can vote on it...(Mostly, I just really want to use the poll gadget and this gives me an excuse. Ha!)

Anyhoo, I look forward to getting another book under my belt. I get such a rush when I finish a book, but then again, I never truly feel like I've finished. There's always that niggling feeling to go back and tweak it. Ah, I could work on the same book for, like, the rest of my life if I let myself.
