Thursday has always been one of my favorite days. Still sort of mid-week with lots to do on my desk, but the luster of Friday gleaming, luring me on. I like my weekends. I don’t have a lot planned for this one. Maybe make some chess cakes (which are really tarts) for my dad for Father’s day, and putts around in the yard. I’ve almost got all my rock borders in, and the last few feet seem to take forever. After that, I’m not sure what I’m going to do. Maybe mulch something.
Today, though, is still a work day, and though Trent did not see Lucy for the first time, he will today or tomorrow. It’s taking me longer to get to the nursery than I thought. Good news is that Guy tells me that the cover for the HOLLOWS INSIDER is up at Amazon. -grin- Sweet. I really like it. It’s not your normal cover, per say, and I can’t wait until it’s really on the shelves. For you Cincy people, there’s no crown building in the shot because the dates in the book put it before it’s built, and trust me, we thought about fudging it. One thing I like is that we’re finally starting to see Rachel’s face. I got a sneak peek at the cover for A PERFECT BLOOD yesterday, which totally blew me away, and yes, we see her face in that one, too. (I’d whine and throw a tantrum at my editor to show it to you, but I know it’s far too soon.)
Speaking of faces, we now have a face for Devin Crossman, the narrator for THE HOLLOWS INSIDER! Congratulations, S. Wilburn! Your photo was chosen as Devin Crossman’s mug shot for the Hollows Gazette! And thank you everyone else who entered. The decisions are getting harder as we get to the end, but I should have a winner for Winnie and the fountain today. (We’re checking with production on how well they will reproduce before we make the final pick.)
PS I was perusing, and I found a cool link for you Kindle/mac/iphone/pad peoples to read the first chapter of SOMETHING DEADLY THIS WAY COMES for free! I’m going to see if there’s something similar for the Nook and Sony e-reader. . . .
Okay, I couldn’t find one for the Nook, but if you go to the first page of ONCE DEAD, TWICE SHY you can read the first chapter on your Kindle edition onKindle, iPhone, iPad,Android, BlackBerry, PCand Mac.
I had no idea this was there. Cool! If the links don’t work, you can reach them directly by going to the book’s page at Amazon and look for the little green box on the right side bar. Enjoy!
