So real I can touch it

WWNNcopyGuess what dropped on my desk yesterday! The very first copy of THE WITCH WITH NO NAME, and is it ever beautiful. I’ve always said I’m a tactile person, (as in must touch, must touch!) and this one went all the way with raised print that bumps under your fingers in gold, and red and black. The inside has its own surprise with actual blue butterflies at every chapter beginning. Blue. Can you believe it? The book itself under the dust jacket is a bright cheery yellow, which I’ve never had before and which I think is interesting because I’ve been gravitating to gold/red this year in my garden and wardrobe. But I think what I like most beyond the color scheme is the balance on the cover. Rachel has power, (power that she didn’t have to change who she is to find) but the man on the cover has power as well. This works for me on all kinds of levels, and I don’t think I’ll ever have a book whose balance I appreciate more.

So I’m going to thank Diana Gill for this, because I know she is the one that fought for all the bells and whistles even though her name wasn’t on the note that came with the book. Thanks, Diana. It looks beautiful, and feels even better.

If you are interested in having blue butterflies on your copy, make sure you get a first edition. I’ve been told it’s only the first print run that will have them.

New chapter release on Monday

No picture today. Yesterday, I watched my damaged tree come all the way down instead of the hoped-for topping. It was not a good day. I appreciate the new spot of sun and the care the crew took to protect/encourage the rest of my trees, but the loss hits hard. I will busy myself in planning out and planting sun-loving plants in the landscape bed it had shaded and everything will be fine. But even if I plant a tree to replace it, (which I did two years ago) I will never live to see it reach that grandeur–and that aches a little, like a phantom pain, maybe.

So, plant your trees early, my friends, and then plant them late for those who come after you.

Signed,
Kim Lorax Harrison

P.S. I’ll have a new chapter from The Witch With No Name on Monday. It’s getting close. Real close.

Hollows series opinion piece

Geekmom just did a fabulous series review (no spoilers for The Witch With No Name) for the Hollows. I never thought of Rachel as being a superhero, but the way Corrina lays it out . . . I can see it. :-)

I wrote the word the way I wished the real one was. Not one with vampires and witches, but one where bravery and fortitude wins out over greed and might-makes-right, and the power of redemption returns two-fold. Wish fulfillment.

Go check it out and leave a comment there!

Monarchs have arrived

MonarchFor a while, I was starting to think they weren’t going to show, but my youngest spotted this one flirting with the milkweed that I gushed about a few weeks ago. It hung around long enough for me to get a picture of her. They only lay a few eggs on each plant, so if I’m really lucky, I’ll have a caterpillar in a few weeks. And I’d have to be really lucky, because I only have the one big plant and a few others nearby. They usually choose to lay their eggs on mass plantings of milkweed.

I’ll let you know . . .

Geoff and Craig take another crack at The Undead Pool

Ha! My day is totally gone, and it’s only like eleven in the morning, but when I started hearing from readers that Craig and Geoff had discussed The Undead Pool again, I assumed that it was a rerun. No. No it wasn’t. Check this out.
