The Other Life in The Bookseller!

The Bookseller selected The Other Life as books to watch in 2012!

Isn't that exciting?? I grinned like a maniac when I saw it!

Here's the scan of the Bookseller page!

And you can even catch a glimpse of the cover!!! (see it there beside Wither??)

The big reveal of the final cover will be soon! So stay tuned. I can't wait to show it to you!

And that red butterfly? Isn't it perfect for business cards and other earrings or, you know, a necklace?

Hehe. So you see. I simply had to browse the internet for jewelry with butterflies after I saw the first draft of the cover. I might even have bought blood-red nailpolish.

You know what all this means? We're getting closer to The Other Life's release and soon there'll be ARCs and that means contests in the near future!

So watch this blog if you want to win ARCs of The Other Life!

Vacation Impressions!

Sunday my husband and I returned to Germany from our east coast trip. It was amazing!
And I met my lovely crit partners!
Here are a few pics:

My crit partner Tracy and I! We met at a baseball game. Tracy invited me! She's lovely like that!

From right to left: Shari ( my crit partner and fellow Apocalypsies member, her book Mystique hits the shelves next year ), Leanna Renee Hieber ( also an Apocalypsies member, her book Darker Still hits the shelves this November) and I. We met in New York during a Teen Author Reading.

I - looking at the breakfast menu of our hotel in Newport.

The beach in front of our hotel.

The bed in our hotel room.

My husband (he's sitting in that pic. He's usually more than a head taller than and I at the end of the baseball game. Orioles vs. Cardinals. That's Camden Yards in the background. The game was fun, though my husband and I don't know anything about baseball. I'm not even sure if it's being played in Germany.

Dinner with the White House in the background! (that illuminated little building in the background.)

Me again in Washington.

On top of the Empire State building!

I think you all know what that is behind me!

So much fun!!!
