Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

The cover for my September 1st Samhain book, ALL FIRED UP, won the Thorn award for best cover in last week's cover clash over at Embrace The Shadows! Pretty cool for a book that hasn't even been released yet, don't you think? Although if you look at the award, it kind of matches my book cover. lol

Today is a busy day for me - this afternoon I'm getting photographs take for my official author picture. I'm hoping for something a little less perky and a little more "urban fantasy vampire books authors." After all, my photo now doesn't really say urban fantasy so much as it says suburban housewife. Yeah.

And of course, when I get home from that, I'll be writing like a good little author with a deadline.

What are you doing today?

  7. Kristen, congrats! How exciting. And good luck with your pictures; that sounds like lots of fun. :)

    I'm hoping to get into my WIP, good and deep, today. If I can keep my excited-about-school-starting kids occupied.
