New Author Photo

Wednesday, June 27, 2012
It was time. My other author photos were done when I was pregnant with my 3 YO. Do the math, that's four years ago. My hair has grown at least a foot since then.

And honestly, I'm tired of people coming up to me and saying, "You look nothing like your picture!" I'm never sure whether or not I should be offended by that . . . lol

So when my family did family pictures, the photographer snapped a few of just me. I'm not in love with them, but they'll do. What do you guys think?

BIG NEWS: Witch Born's cover reveal is next week!!! This one blew the first out of the water, IMO (and I LOVED my first cover). This may be the most beautiful cover in the history of ever. I'd show it to ya'll now, but we're going on vacation and I doubt I'll have time. You wanted something to look forward to anyway, right???

Review of Nighingale by David Farland

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

From Amazon: Bron Jones was abandoned as a newborn. Thrown into foster care, he is rejected by one family after another, until he meets Olivia, a gifted and devoted high-school teacher who recognizes him for what he really is—what her people call a “nightingale.”

But Bron isn’t ready to learn the truth. There are secrets that have been hidden from mankind for hundreds of thousands of years, secrets that should remain hidden. Some things are too dangerous to know.

Bron’s secret may be the most dangerous of all.

My review:

Once again, David Farland proves himself a master of words. Nightingale is a book to read slowly, savoring the delicate balance woven between beauty and despair, hope and hopelessness.

The main character, Bron, seems to be teetering on the edge between master villain and hero, showing the reader how fine the line between good and evil really is.

A contemporary fantasy, Nightingale will appeal to both sexes, though men will especially relate to Bron's character.

Witch Born Update

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Witch Born is finally, FINALLY off to copyedits. I'm supposed to have them back early next week. The cover is scheduled to be finished on Friday. The book has already been formatted in InDesign. Everything is coming together all at once. So exciting! It's also a huge relief. I've been working a minimum of ~8 hours everyday on this for over a month (a lot to ask of a mom of three little ones, but that's another post).

Here's my favorite moth from the cover, just to give you a taste of the awesomeness.

On a personal note, I'm pretty sure my daughter has taken off with my coupon card and credit card (they were in my wallet on my desk yesterday), and I can't find them anywhere. At least she's a thrifty thief.
