Celebrate: Surfacing & Giveaways!


This week I decided to put "life" on hold (online and regular) and sleep no more than 4 hours a night to devote myself to cover design for my next book, Coldest Night (the Alaska thriller). I've been trying to come up with a cover for 6 months but never even came close--sort of like writer's block except for art designers.

This week was one of those "I'm going to do it or die trying" weeks.

The bad news is my email is now overflowing, my updates and messages on Twitter and FB are way over 100, and I've got a sore throat.

The good news is I did it! I have 6 or 7 now, and with a few more touch ups and some font, I'll be ready to let my trusty CPs see them and give suggestions for improvement.

What about you? After I get some covers ready to go (probably in Jan), would you be willing to do a poll like I did for Bloodwalker and vote on your favorite covers?

Celebrate: Soul Cutter & Giveaways

Announcing the re-release of Soul Cutter
with new cover!

Soul Cutter
YA Horror/Paranormal Romance
Blurb: 

The Soul Cutter is hunting again.

Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.

In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan's only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.

When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.

Élan is fighting for her very soul.

Only $2.99 at:   AMAZON      B&N      KOBO      Smashwords
