First Teaser for Swear
The Hollows Covers and Sale!!
So in all the excitement about the big Swear announcement (the final book in the My Blood Approves series is coming November 9th and is available for preorder now, go: here for more info and links to order), I didn’t want to miss out on telling you something else exciting.
A few months ago, I had the covers of the Hollows redone by Mae I Design. They are beautiful and wonderful and exactly what I was hoping for, and they even look fantastic in paperback! (They are both available in paperback now too!) And even better news, both books in the Hollows are currently on sale in the spirit of Halloween! (more…)

“In the final book of the My Blood Approves series…

Keep putting words in front of each other, hammering out sentences the best you can, until you reach the end. There’s no real way to tell if it’s any good as you’re writing, particularly since every one of my books has been vastly improved and are sometimes dramatically different after the editing phase.

Death and the Living
Gene Wilder is dead, but I am not.
I think about death on a daily basis, but not in a suicidal, macabre sort of way.
