Because Life Is Too Easy

Because Life Is Too Easy

Last May I wrote an article with tips for naming characters. It’s not an easy process, and most of my characters go through at least one name change in the course of my writing the first draft. But when employing my usual name hunt techniques for my new book, I ran across something I just had to share: the Cornwall Record Office “silly names list.” If you haven’t seen it...

News & Cover Art Goodness

I’m a tart for cover art. It’s true. I don’t like admitting it, because, well, I’m a writer. I’m supposed to tell people that the words in a book are the most important thing.

Woohoo! Blood Faerie Available Worldwide!

As you can probably tell from the number of exclamation points I’ve used already today on Twitter and Facebook (!!!) I’m very excited about the launch of Blood Faerie today. And you’re probably wondering who won the five free copies I gave away as part of my launch day celebrations. By the way, I was absolutely floored that nearly 75 people signed up to win a copy! I am so...
