Give the Gift of Autographed Blood Coven

Hi all!

Did you know Blood Coven books make great holiday gifts? :) Especially if they're personally autographed copies, made out to the person on you're giving them to! But how do you get your hands on one of those? Here's a few ways:

1) If you send me the cost of the book ($9.99 plus $3.00 shipping) either by mail or over PayPal, I can send you out autographed copies directly.

2) If you mail me the book you bought in a store and enclose return postage, I can autograph and mail it back to you.

3) I can mail you a "book plate" which is basically an autograph sticker, which can be stuck inside your copy of the book. Just email me if you want this. No worries on postage since this will just be the cost of a stamp.

EMAIL ME ( if you're interested in any of the above options and we'll talk details!

The Blood Coven Display

Check this out! Berkley was nice enough to send me one of the floor displays for the Blood Coven re-releases. This is what they've sent to Borders stores across the country. It's soooo pretty! My first ever floor display. I feel like this is some kind of writing milestone I should celebrate!!!

And yes, Jacob was nice enough to let me display it in the living room! :)

In case you're wondering, I put both versions of the books in there cause I thought it looked nice. Obviously in the real stores they'd only have the new covers.

Anyway, just wanted to share!

Blogging over at my agent's blog today

My blog tour continues as I travel cyberspace to promote the Blood Coven!! :)

Today I'm over at my agent, Kristin Nelson's, blog, talking about how for a while the future of the Blood Coven series seemed very dim indeed, but through determination and stubborness galore, we were able to get not only Book #4 published in the US, but also the revamped first three books!

Hope you'll take a few moments to stop by and read. And for those of you in similar situations, or just trying to get your first book published, I hope it will be a story of inspiration for you. I know the book business is tough. But you should never give up. Never surrender. :)
