A cry for help?

I got my proof of Glimmer today and I must say it looks fabulous! You can buy the paperback here. We did a little something different with Glimmer and actually put stuff on the back cover this time…like a real book.  Hey, it’s a learning curve.  I didn’t know any of the awesome indies that I know now when I put out Glimpse, so I didn’t have anyone to tell me that it needed a blurb on the back, nor did I have anyone to blab a blurb on the back.  You do better when you know better.  Something that I didn’t learn not to do after releasing Glimpse into the wild was to avoid posting dorky pics of myself with my books.  Behold, a couple of shots from the Glimmer photo shoot.  And, yes, that is a salad dressing stain on my sweatshirt.

This time I took the pictures in my kitchen because I still haven’t changed the burnt out lightbulbs in my office (going on 3 months now) and the glare from the flash was obscuring the title on the book.

Here I am pretending to be shocked at meeting myself under such strange circumstances.

And those are the two best pictures.  Yup.

Today was the first day of NaNoWriMo and so far so good.  I managed to get a bit over the word count I was aiming for and I know what I’m going to write tomorrow.  I think you all are going to like Cara and Abel just as much as Flora and Julian.  Lots of good majicky stuff happening.  The first thing I have to do tomorrow is get all the characters for the series figured out and name them.  Actually, I could use a little help with this.  So far I have Guardians-Abel, Caroline, and Reginald and Sacrifices-Alex (vamp), Meagan (werewolf), and Damian ( shape shifter).  I need 9 more Guardian and 9 more Sacrifice names.  Post some in the comments if you feel so inclined.

Now I’m off to put the kids to bed and eat their Halloween candy while they sleep.  Good times.

  1. Zelda sounds like a Sacrifice to me, but I think she could go either way. Also, Bartholomew sounds like kind of a badass name, yes? Ha, it wouldn’t be one of your stories if it wasn’t slightly overpopulated. Having lots of characters is fun! 🙂

  2. I am absolutely using all the names you guys gave me! I’d even considered using Hilda, so Brunhilda wasn’t that far off. 🙂 I just found I was giving all the women names that ended with A’s.

    Evelyn is my baby girl’s middle name and I already put her brother’s name in the first Day Of Sacrifice, so I’m definitely going to use that one!
