GRAVE MEMORY Covers (US & UK)

Today I'm very happy to unveil the cover for the third Alex Craft novel, GRAVE MEMORY, which will be hitting shelves this July. And not only do I have US cover, but I also have the UK cover. I believe the books should be hitting shelves simultaneously, so this is super exciting.

Okay, enough chatter. You want the covers, right?



Above is the US cover (The title will be printed with gold embossing) 


And this is the UK cover


So, what do you think? I love them. Of course, blue is my favorite color, so I'm probably biased. ^_^

Pictures and such

This is a fly by posting. I just wanted to post some pictures I found rather exciting:

First up, from this weekend here is a picture of Faith and me signing books at the Raven Cursed release party (Which was tons of fun. Thank you everyone who came out!) In front of me, you can see PC in his first public appearance.









Next, another image from the signing--my name on the sign! This is a first for me. I've been in program books and on posters, but never on a sign. So this moment is now memorialized. ^_^ (yes, I'm very easily excited.)








And lastly for this post, some pretties. (This picture doesn't do them justice.) On the left you can see the UK version of Grave Dance which will be released February 2nd and on the right a copy of the German edition of Once Bitten. There is absolutely nothing like holding a book in your hands for the first time.




Okay, that's it for me. Back to writing!
Happy Monday everyone.

Want a signed book?

Two bits of news today--both dealing with signed books.

First up, I want to remind everyone that this Saturday (1/07)  I'll be at the Booknack in Rockhill, SC from 5-7pm as part of the release party for the newest Jane Yellowrock novel, Raven Cursed, by NYT best selling author Faith Hunter. I love Faith's books, and I'm thrilled to have been invited to join her release party, so I hope you'll stop by. We'd both love to see you!

I know some of you aren't in the South East (where most of the events and conventions I attend are located). Which leads me to my second bit of news: I talked to Mike (the very awesome guy at the Booknack) and if you'd like me to sign a book made out to you, the Alex Craft novels can be ordered before the event and I'll sign and personalize it for you while I'm at the store Saturday and the Booknack will ship the signed book(s) to you.

Yes, you read that correctly. You can get a signed and personalized book without driving halfway across the country. ^_^

To order a book, call the Booknack at 803-327-9028. (Their hours are 10am - 8pm EST Monday - Saturday and 2-6pm on Sunday.) They will be accepting payment via credit card only. The cost will be the book's the cover price ($7.99 per book) plus shipping, which will be $3.99 for one book or $5.99 two. If you'd like the book personalized, make sure you order before the signing this Saturday. Mike is also allowing me to sign stock, so if you order after Saturday you can probably still get a signed book--it just won't be personalized. 

We don't have any indie bookstores left in my area, so I'm thrilled to be working with Mike and the Booknack to offer you this opportunity to acquire signed books.

I hope to see you at the signing on Saturday (or to sign a book or two for you)! Happy hump day everyone.
