Belated Shamelessness

I was supposed to post this last week.  Lest you think that's becoming rather a broken record response with dear bubble-headed Gretchen, I have a decent excuse this time.

I got engaged last weekend.


The authors in today's post have been very understanding of having to wait an extra week for me to toot their horns.  They deserve a round of applause!

First off, a cover reveal!  This is AIRE by Lena Goldfinch, designed by her and another talented Inkie, Lisa Amowitz!!!

AIRE is available now!

Dawn Metcalf has ARCS of INDELIBLE and she's giving them away!  Trust me, you want to win one. Look for them on Goodreads, Netgalley, at BEA and contests at!

Speaking of new works, Laura Williams McCaffrey has a new fantasy short story out on YA Literature Network's site, which pretty much looks totally and utterly amazing.

There's an Inkie out there getting mad love from Kirkus!  Yes, Kirkus!!!!  A BOX OF GARGOYLES, the sequel to Anne Nesbet's much ballyhooed THE CABINET OF EARTHS, earned a starred review in this month's issue! This is my favorite line:
"A flavorful mille-feuille with equally tasty layers of dark magic, light comedy, and salty determination." 
A BOX OF GARGOYLES hits shelves May 14th.

And last but not least, there's a new First Five Pages Workshop this week, run by our own Martina Boone.  Check it out!

That's it for me this week.  I'll just be over here in the corner, staring at my shiny ring!

  7. I'm giving a testimony on how me and my fiance became a vampire. This was how i and my fiance became Vampire, I was browsing the internet searching on how i could be transformed. When i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I and my fiance has always dreamed of becoming a VAMPIRES so he asked me my name, country, State, address, photo, etc. and asked me to contact the market of spells for the Hindu materials required for our transformation. So I did and he said that a vampire will be assigned to guide us and direct us on how the items are to be used. After five days I and my fiance was totally a vampire. if you are interested in becoming a vampire, contact him for more information on how you could also be transformed. Email:
