I have been sent cover art for the soon to be released anthology that will include my short story, Wolf Bait. They plan to release the anthologies (of which there will be three) for free read and download in time for Thanksgiving. When the links become available, I will share them. Isn't the cover art amazing???

Thanks to everyone who voted for "Wolf Bait" in the All Romance Ebooks Just One Bite contest! I appreciate your support. If you didn't get a chance to read it while it was up on their site, --it's going to be released in three separate free anthologies published by ARE soon. I will post the info when it becomes available and am still honored to have my story side by side with so many other talented authors!
If you haven't had a chance to check out the contest, it's still going, and the remaining stories are accessible as free reads at the All Romance Ebooks website.
Again, I will share the anthology info as soon as it becomes available and thank you all so much for taking the time to support Wolf Bait and me!!!

Well, not quite. NaNoNaNo.
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo which always makes me think of NaaNooNaaNoo... Mork?? Too old of a referance? Eh. Whippersnappers...) is almost upon us which means...
Yes. It means I will be writing a book in a month. Join me on this epic *cough* journey.
Okay, maybe not epic. Pathetic includes all the same letters as epic... did you ever notice this? I did. It was during a night of particularly evil writing blockage.
Which is probably how I will feel on the days that I don't hit goal. But I know I can hit my 50k and I hope you will follow me on my journey and maybe try it with me.
To quote the letter sent by NaNoWriMo...
Come on over to NaNoWriMo.org today to check out the all-new resources awaiting you, including an amazing crew of pep talkers, bright and shiny web badges, NaNoVideos, sweet noveling goodies in the store, an updated homepage with even more fun information from NaNoland (including the expanded OLL blog!), and more forums than ever! And that’s just the beginning…
Also, if you know any kids or teens who love writing, be sure to send them over to NaNoWriMo's Young Writers Program!So check it out and friend me if you are over there...
And I will be blogging and facebooking my experience. So you can watch me suffer and sweat firsthand...
Ah... first row seats to agony... what more can you ask for?
