I'll also be lurking around at the Giant Book Fair on the Saturday. I won't be at a specific table but I'm happy (always!) to sign any books (of mine - signing other authors' books would be plain weird ;-)), or anything else (within the realms of normal decency ... though remember I'll be hanging out with the crowd of authors on the Scavenger Hunt card above, so your normal might, or might not, equal mine *looks shifty*).

And here's a larger pic of my fab badge! You're so gonna want one of these Bad Boys, so come find me! *g*

Fairy Wishes (Short Story) Cover Reveal!

Fairy Wishes is a fun short story featuring Genny in one of her first jobs. It's set before The Sweet Scent of Blood – Spellcrackers.com #1 - so is spoiler free. And it's also free to read here, on the website.



Fairy Wishes has a new cover by Yours Truly! My first!

I've used a different model for Genny (sadly I didn't think my pennies wouldn't stretch to the lovely original lady) but I think this 'Genny' (found on Big Stock) despite her slightly longer hair*, is a good alternative. What do you all think? I hope you like it, and enjoy reading the story :-)

*I tried 'cutting' it but my mad photoshop skillz aren't that good.  *g*

Free "Love Story" featuring Adele Hale Stackhouse, Sookie's Gran!

Oooooh! Look a fab free story on audio by the brilliant Jeanne C. Stein!

It wasn't until the death of her Gran, Adele Hale Stackhouse, that Sookie learned the secret of her own ancestry: her true grandfather was a part-human fairy. Now, for the first time, Adele's long-hidden journal reveals how she and Fintan met - and how they loved. "Love Story" by Jeanne C. Stein is one of 15* brand-new tales contained in Dead but Not Forgotten: Stories from the World of Sookie Stackhouse, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner.  

Listen to a sample of "Love Story" here

And, I've just discovered to my joy, Audible stories can be listened to on Kindle! (Even my old first gen one :-))

Yay! That's going to make my upcoming four hour coach journey much more bearable (can't read without getting nauseous in cars or coaches :-()

*I may have mentioned this (or y'know, shouted about it in delight from the rooftops *g*) ... I've also got a story - The Bat-Signal, about Luna Garza - in this fab anthology! *Bounces* ;-D

ETA: You can listen to a (4 minute) sample of Luna's tale here on Audible's sound cloud! Yay! 

And there's samples of all the other stories too - Click on the links below to listen :-)

"Another Dead Fairy" by Miranda James (featuring Claude & Claudia Crane)
"Widower's Walk" by MaryJanice Davidson (featuring Eric Northman) 

Awesome Presents Friends Send You!

One of the super awesome things about creating characters is when super lovely and talented peeps do fabulous character art and then send said fab art as perfect pressies (along with other wonderful goodies :-))

And so here are the gorgeous paintings of Genny and Mad Max created by my lovely and talented friend Che Gilson. (Che writes, too! ;-)) Thank you, Che!

 See a better scan of Genny on Che's Deviant Art
Genny's so pretty and her eyes are perfect, and I love her hair!
 See a better scan of Mad Max on Che's Deviant Art

Lol! Max is a Bad Boy, so crafty and devious and this expression is so RIGHT! Plus, I love the way you can just see his vamp teeth, and his dog collar is COOL!

Che also sent me some other goodies - her brilliant Dark Moon Diary comic, some Carmine Rojas stickers (read about Che's upcoming novella here), and some yummy choc! Nomnomnom! I have WONDERFUL friends! Yay!(If you like Che's art she does some fabulous T-shirt designs on Redbubble :-))
