And by “for” cats, I mean ON cats. And by saying they are not just for cats, I don’t mean that the humans in our house have fleas.
FLE stands for “final line edits”, and I have had my final line edits for A SPELL FOR SUSANNAH (releasing January 29) approved. Which means, at long last, I can offer up some official excerpts! I posted one from the second chapter on my website, where the heroine and hero first meet when she and her mother, the Queen, are interviewing candidates for the castle guard. The excerpt is PG. Soon there will be another excerpt on the Samhain website, something PG-13ish, and there will also be one that appears in the backs of other Samhain novels. My FLEs had excerpts from THE WOLVERINE AND THE FLAME by Rebecca Goings and GO BETWEEN by Dayna Hart.
I’ve also seen my cover and I’m waiting to hear it’s been approved as well. I definitely approved!
In other writing news, I got a couple reviews for SUM3, to wit:
Lee-Ann at Fallen Angel Reviews: “Sum 3 is an anthology that can please any romantic taste. Join these talented authors in their worlds of magic, fantasy, paranormal, and most of all, love. Each story is a well-chosen example of the genre, put together so your attention is caught and held tight.” The full review: http://www.fallenangelreviews.com/2007/December/LeeAnn-Sum3.htm
At Amazon, 2 different reviewers have said, “The world-building in all the stories is the biggest factor contributing to the five-star rating. Every author paints the world as existent and whole, without filling paragraphs of description and explanation that take the reader out of the story.” Then also: “If you like romances mixed with ‘what could be’s’ then you’ll like this book.” Full page: Sum3: The 2006 Zircon Anthology of Speculative Romance.
Is it too-too lame to point out Amazon reviews, all things considered? 🙂
Ok, I see that for some reason the baby is nude and I must rectify that before she takes advantage of the floor.
