It’s been busy here at Collins Manor–well, right now I’m at Collins Memorial Library doing Collins Memorial Work, but you get the idea.
Last week I got a wonderful surprise in the mail from Editor Holly. It was a packet of the loveliest coverflats, you’ve ever seen! If you don’t know what a coverflat is, here’s a picture. They’re basically a true sized version of a mass market book cover, but without all the folding and pages inside. Look for them to feature soon in giveaways and the like!
In other fabulous news, the snafu that was keeping my book from being available for pre-order at Amazon has been resolved! Now as you can see here, you can click that hot little button and reserve your own copy!
How AWESOME IS THAT???? I hate to admit it, but that made me feel like a “real” author–whatever that might be. Sniff.
Also, I’ve been blogging quit a bit at Criminal Element and Heroes and Heartbreakers. Last week’s write-up about the ins and outs of Criminal Minds–one of my favorite shows on the teevee–was super fun to do. And it’s fun to see what other folks think about the show. This week’s fare is on Heroes and Heartbreakers, where I ask the burning question: What Ever Happened to the Standalone Romance Novel?
And finally, in news around the blogosphere, my friend Limecello is going to bat again for a good cause. This time, it’s child hunger. She’s already raised a ton of money through her comment drive. Won’t you add to the good cause by adding your comment to the 400+ already there? When it hits 500 a group of authors from St. Martin’s Press (of which I am a member) will give an awesome prize package! Come on. What do you have to lose?
Ta ta for now!
