Something Cute
Posted on Saturday, July 4, 2015 at 7 pm by

So my assistant Jenn showed me this today, because she knew I needed to see something cute. It helped. I’m still grumbly, but a little less. :)

General Bookish Notes About My Books
Posted on Friday, July 3, 2015 at 7 am by

Some general bookish notes here:

Fligth From Death cover

Remember peeps: get your preorders for Flight from Death into Seattle Mystery Bookstore if you want a personalized signed copy. Do that by Tuesday in order to ensure they have enough copies for me next week when I go in to sign them.

On Tuesday, July 7, I will be participating in an online Facebook wall chat on the Project Paranormal page. Please drop by there and leave any questions you may have and I will answer them. It’s very helpful for my publisher to see my readers support.

Darkness Raging Cover

So yesterday I turned in Darkness Raging to my editor. There was a bittersweet feeling to turning the book in, because it will be the last Otherworld book I do with Berkley. Yes, I will be finishing the series

FLIGHT FROM DEATH RELEASE CONTEST
Posted on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at 12 am by

FFDreleasebasket

Release Contest for FLIGHT FROM DEATH.

I will be giving away two prizes, one to my US readers, and one to my international readers.

USA: One winner will receive the above pictured basket with lots of goodies. (Does not include a copy of Flight From Death). Books, a dragon, mug, pens, journal, bath and body goodies, a pendant, an amazon gift card, a pretty tote bag, lots of lovely things.

International: One winner will receive a $50 amazon.com e-gift certificate.

To Enter:

  • You must be 18 or older to enter.
  • Specify if you are USA or International.
  • Tell me if you would rather be a dragon or a vampire. :)

All taxes are your responsibility. If you do not follow directions, sorry, you won’t be entered. If you whine “PICK ME” I’m going to be Stern Author and say Nope.

Winners will be picked on July 8th and notified by email, so MAKE SURE you enter your email address (when you post the comment, it will ask for it) correctly. One entry per person. I can usually tell if there’s a glitch and it accidentally posts twice or so, so don’t worry about that. But if I find a bunch of entries that are different under the same email addy, well….ya know folks…not that hard to get a free email account!

Anyway, it’s a fun basket and I hope whoever wins it will enjoy!

The scrub here was windswept—all the foliage along the edges of the peninsula seemed was bent and gnarled, and  with good reason. The winds came blustering in off the ocean and the strait, and their stiff, steady breezes bowed the trees back. The tangle of knee-high yellow grass crackled against my jeans as I pushed through, and all the while my pulse was keeping a staccato beat. I swept my gaze this way and that, trying to pinpoint where we should turn.

A Year of Trees: Week 43
Posted on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 4 pm by

June28-2015

There is a street nearby that I absolutely love. Really, it could be any street, there’s nothing really outstanding about it, except for the fact that it is lined with trees. Now this a common sight around here except these are all deciduous trees. And every autumn they blaze into color around the same time. And every spring, they suddenly burst forth with leaves around the same time.

She held my gaze for a moment, then nodded and stood up. “Mr. Strand is free to go in and start work on rebuilding his bed-and-breakfast, but he can’t open till the damage has been fixed and the inspector signs off on it.” She paused then, looking like she wanted to say something else. I wasn’t the only one who noticed it.

Tonya set a cup of coffee in front of Paris. “What is it?”
