Green-Eyed Envy Cover At Last!…

I am thrilled to share the finalized cover for Green-Eyed Envy and couldn’t be more pleased.  Both Judy York and the Ace Art Department have done a fabulous job once more.  They have done a fabulous job of blending artistic license with my vision of Riss and brought her to kick-ass life.  I am truly blessed by the cover art gods.  =)

Green-Eyed Envy Available for Pre-Order and E-books to Come!

I’m excited to announce that Green-Eyed Envy is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com.  The publication date is June 28, 2011 and I should be getting the cover any day now.  I’ve turned the book in to my editor and am just waiting for her revision notes so I can go through the first round of edits.  This is all just about as exciting for book 2 as it was for book 1, and I hope I never get to that “jaded” point with this process.  While I worked my booty off to get to this point, I know just how blessed and lucky I am to be publishing such a great series with an awesome publisher.  The folks at Ace/Roc have just been fantastic to work with and, of course, I couldn’t be happier with my “rockstar” agent, Ginger Clark.

Now if only I can get back into that habit of regular updates again!  Life is busy, but I promise to try harder to do better.  =)

Additionally, while I don’t have any official dates to share yet, I can confirm that both Red Hot Fury and Green-Eyed Envy will be available as e-books.  More details to follow as I get them.  Thanks to all my lovely readers and future readers for the support and comments.

Red Hot Fury Gets Starred Review in Publishers Weekly!

Exciting news:  Red Hot Fury received a starred review in Publishers Weekly.  Totally unexpected but I am absolutely thrilled!

“Urban fantasy readers looking for something new will thrill to this exhilarating debut, populated with creatures from Greek myth. To end a war between mortals and supernatural arcanes, the Furies stepped in to be peacemakers. Now Fury Marissa “Riss” Holloway helps mortal police in Boston solve magical crimes. When a corpse that looks like another Fury washes up from the harbor, Riss quickly realizes it’s a fake and connects it to a recent series of disappearances, but both the police and the Sisterhood of Furies stonewall her investigation. Riss has only one place to turn: her ex, Scott Murphy, a shape-shifting Warhound. As they start to uncover the truth, Scott and Riss also uncover their still-strong feelings for one another. Riss is the perfect urban fantasy heroine–fresh, sassy, smart, and determined–and a cavalcade of fully developed side characters keep this twisty tale moving quickly.”  (Publishers Weekly)

Temporary Tattoos (Not Final)

So, this is a (nonfinal) proof of the temporary tattoos I’m having designed to give away at the Romantic Times Convention next month (and leading up to release date).  I am so in love with the design my awesome friend J from AW (and I have TOTALLY got to get the website she wants  me to link to for credit purposes) has done for me.  So here, look, and lust!!!

Red Hot Fury News: Full-Page Ad in Berkley July Catalog

Hopefully others will find this at least half as exciting as I do.  The awesome folks at Penguin/Berkley have included a full-age ad for Red Hot Fury in their July catalog primarily aimed toward booksellers.  I think they did a fantastic job with it and I’m just so grateful and thrilled!  You can take a look at the ad via my page dedicated to booksellers and librarians.

My Red Hot Cover, Let Me Show You It!!!

I am pleased as punch (spiked if you prefer it that way) to be able to share my amazingly gorgeous cover with you.  The Ace art department has done a FABULOUS job of bringing Riss, my very own Red Hot Fury, to life and I absolutely love this cover.  Props also go to my stupendous editor, Jessica Wade, who has also done a fantastic job bringing this cover to fruition.

So, without further ado, here it is!
