Some updates

Finishing up on the young adult revisions for DARKNESS BECOMES HER. Plan to turn those in on Monday. I believe the release date for this book will be April 19, 2011, but I haven't seen the contract yet, so take this as a tentative date for now.

Working on the cover copy for the second Charlie Madigan book, THE DARKEST EDGE OF DAWN. Hopefully, I'll get to release the cover in the next couple weeks. *fingers crossed* For those who don't know, 'cover copy' is the text you find on the front and back cover of a book, and this includes the text you find on the inside of the covers as well. So, things like the tag line on the front of a book, the blurb on the back, and the author bio on the inside back cover, etc... Every publisher/editor is different, of course, on the level of author input here, but I get to see mine and can tweak it if I want. So, tweak, I shall. :-)

And what is my fascination with the word 'Dark' and all it's variations? My first three titles feature the word. I wonder what this says about me. Heh.

And last, but certainly not least, tomorrow is a very special day because I'll be hosting my very first guest blogger. Fellow urban fantasy and Pocket author, Jennifer Estep will be here to discuss her awesome new series, The Elemental Assassin, and the first release, SPIDER'S BITE. She'll be giving away a signed copy, too!

I love the title linkage! I've been trying to come up with my own even though I'm still working on the 1st WIP in the series. LOL. :-D

Imagine my madness when I get an agent and a contract. ;-) Can't wait for Jennifer tomorrow. :-D

Thanks, Demon Hunter. :-) I'm like you -- have to come up with titles ahead of time, or at the very least, I must have a title before I start writing the book.
