Audiobooks, Ho!

Some of you might have seen the tweets and fb statuses that I’ve been making about trying to decide which book of mine should go audio first. After much thought and input, I’ve decided to go with the first Two Monarchies book, Spindle.

Right?

Not so much. Because now I have to find the perfect narrator. Which is something rather difficult for me, given that I don’t actually listen to audiobooks, don’t like listening to audiobooks, and don’t really know what I’m looking for.

So if you guys have a favourite narrator, a personal recommendation, or anything similar—chuck it at me. Over the next month or two I’ll be gathering samples and auditions, and at the end of that time, I’ll post ’em here on the blog and through my newsletter for you guys to pick which one you like the best.

I’m really excited about this, even if I’m not an audiobook person, and I can’t wait to see how Spindle comes out!

SPINDLE Fan Art for Your Delectation

Hey guys! Sorry-pardon for the sad lack of blog posts this week: I’ve been ‘orribly sick and I’m only just starting to feel better. On the bright side, I’ve still been writing BATEOY and BLACKFOOT. On the less-than-bright side, I’ve been too exhausted to do any other kind of writing–or much else, actually.

I was fortunate to receive a lovely email early on in the week: someone who had read and enjoyed my books was making fan art for Spindle, and wanted to know the colour of Poly’s eyes. This naturally cheered me up quite a bit, and since I found the art that Karisa sent me thereafter to be both adorable and cute, I thought I’d share it with you. You can see more of Karisa’s work at her DeviantArt page (though she tells me she doesn’t update it terribly often 🙂 )

A headshot of Poly. So adorable! And it even has the feather and beads in her hair!

I’ll be back next week with a proper blog post and another chapter of BRIGHT AS THE EYES OF YOU on Wattpad 🙂 See you all then!

New Cover Reveal: MASQUE!

It’s here! It’s finally here! MASQUE has a new cover, and it is GLORIOUS!

Could it BE any more GORGEOUS?!?

Could it BE any more GORGEOUS?!?

A little while ago I rediscovered the truly amazing work that Jenny from Seedlings Design Studio does on my fellow authors’ covers. I’d already seen many of her covers- in fact, I knew that when I started making enough money on my books, I wanted my covers designed by Jenny. Greatly to my joy, I have reached that stage; and even more to my joy, Jenny agreed to work with me on a new cover for MASQUE!

In honour of the beauteous new cover for MASQUE, I’m giving away an ebook copy! The ebook copy is new and improved, with gorgeous new interior graphics. I’m really excited about all of the new pretties.
