Covers and Crap

I know I haven't been around a lot in the last week, but it's been, shall we say, a crappy week. Those of you who know me IRL (aka In Real Life) know exactly what I'm talking about. Those that don't, suffice it to say I lost my fourteen year old cat for no known reason and nearly had to take M, my four year old son, to the hospital. I've been something of a basket case for the last week, but thankfully it's over. Hopefully next week will be much better.

However, some good hath come from the crap. My cover for Cat of a Different Cover is official! Book 3 of the Halle Pumas looks great (thank you, Anne Cain)! You can see it on my sidebar here, or at my website, or over at Samhain.

The edits on Cat should start soon, and I'm looking forward to that. I'm also beginning to play around with Windows MovieMaker, so I'll have a book trailer for the Hunting Love anthology by the end of the year. The music JB and I picked absolutely freakin' rocks.

This weekend, I'm planning on getting some much-needed gardening done and playing with my kids, so I'll see you all on Monday!
