Big News!





As you may recall, a while back I posted three potential covers for my new book, The Eternal Ones. Over one hundred of you wrote in to vote for a favorite. Well, here's the final cover! (Sitting on my cluttered desk.) I love it! What do you think?

Now my amazing publisher, Razorbill, has done something so unbelievably cool that I can barely contain myself. They've had ouroboros rings made!!!! I just wish my photos did them justice. Their little red eyes sparkle with evil.







Razorbill has even put together a video that brings the snake to life. It's things like this that make sitting in front of a computer all day worthwhile. And there's so much more to come!




One more thing before I go. My Significant Objects dome doll (scroll down to see it) sold for $35 on ebay. Woohoo! Thanks for bidding!

Nifty cover.

I saw the video, and thought, "YES!!! Now I can know more about this book than the little I already do! But I was disappointed. =[

Unfortunately, my library is NOTORIOUSLY slow at acquiring new books unless they're Harry Potter or Twilight. The local bookstores are likewise. So I'll either have to wait forever, or get it off Amazon. Which I might have to do...

I saw this, screamed "YES!" and then everyone in my family looked at me like I was crazy.

Of course dentists are evil. I remember one of my visits to a dentist. I hid in the toy box and then my mom ratted me out and then it took three nurses and the dentist to hold me down. :D

OH SO COOL!!

Congrats, Kirsten! The video is amazing.

As a writer, I'm so incredibly jealous. Haha, maybe one of these days I'll work up the courage to send something to a publisher or an agent or something. Maybe.
