With visions of either 1000.00 to fix it, again, or a new car $$$ I was a little upset. But it's Easter and I have a lemon cake to make and a barbque this afternoon with family. The same family who picked us up and took us to get gas, just in case the stupid meter was off, and towed us home. Did I mention my cousin is married to a mechanic? I love my cousin's husband. In fact he makes me want to marry a mechanic too. Mechanics, as you all have to know, are a gift of the Lord- at least they are when they are related to you and are just generally nice guys anyway. Having a great guy who is also a mechanic in the family means I can't really complain. Plus, I have been broke lots of times and I didn't have a new back deck to show for it, so there you go. Glass half full.
Moving on. Today is going to be a good day-or else. You know what I'm saying?
Good news- Claiming Her is awesome. I will admit to being a little worried, I mean lets face it, most of my fan mail is about the Keeping Her series. And it seems I get questions daily about the next one, or when Cleo will have her own book, or Logan, or well, you get what I'm saying. So I really want this one to meet all those high expectations. So far I know I am loving it so I hope you will too.
Strangely enough I will have Web of Bones out in Print this week. I know The Dragon Mage is not out yet but this one was already professionally edited so its basically ready to go.-So you get it first. And on Wednesday I will be giving away prizes of autographed copies of my books in print. Namely Keeping Her, Beatrice and Douglas, and of course, Web of Bones.
You can win this if you follow my take over of the Rawbooks website. There will be trivia and random prizes for people who send me questions and so forth, and I will have a sneak peak of Claiming Her that no one has seen. Not the first chapter people, a scene in the book with Lucas Gibbs and Miley Isabella Rose. In case you are like me and like that sort of thing.
You can check me out of Rawbooksonline.com on April 23rd, from 8pm-10pm. I am hoping people actually show up because otherwise I will be sitting there crying lonely tears thinking "doesn't anybody like me?" and no doubt eating chocolate. It could get very ugly. plus- PRIZES people, PRIZES. I am not above bribery here.
