A. Johnny thinks the puppies are TERRIFYING. He ran away, shook like a leaf, and yipped and snapped. I'm a little worried about this, but we think if we keep introducing him to the puppies and nothing bad happens, maybe he'll chill.
And that way, I'd get up, drop the kids off, and spend another day at the office.
*choke* *giggle* *snort*
Best. Running Joke. Ever.
So, yanno. There's that. *whine* *whimper* *whinge* So now I'm done.
Beneath the Stain is one of them. I always get a kick of seeing my books on banners like that… feels so official, yanno? (And no. It never gets old. Neither does signing the contract, getting the box of author copies, seeing my cover art, or signing anything for readers. Never. Not once have I thought, "Oh, gees, I wish I didn't have to sign, open, look at, or epigraph… that's just boring." Not once. Always new, always happy, always awesome. And now you know.) So this is fun too!
* One of the reasons we're putting off bringing the puppy home is that we're spending Thanksgiving in a very unusual place this year… DISNEYLAND. Yeah. Had to throw that in there. Cause. DISNEYLAND! Anyway-- for anyone following Nano, should I check out completely that last week in November? Now you know why. DISNEYLAND.
* And oh… did you notice the cover reveal? I noticed the cover reveal… wasn't it an awesome cover? Seriously! Paul Richmond watercolored this (with some help from some pictures I sent him) and this is my sweet, adorable, heart-tugging Christmas novella that will be out at the beginning of December.
I am so happy. The next time you see this cover, it's gonna be with a link, but in the meantime, PUPPY!!!!!!
