This is the voting link! Cut and paste this to vote: http://goo.gl/forms/mxtZfBKyjY (Votes in the comment section won't be counted - just those in the official voting link count!) Hi Guys! I need the help of my awesome fans! It's time to choose an author photo for MOON CHOSEN, the first book in my new fantasy series, TALES OF A NEW WORLD. Will you help me by voting for your favorite? Dogs - terriers and shepherds - are a huge part of the world, so these photos feature my Scotties (puppies - Captain Kirk and The Mighty Khan, adult Scottie - Cameron/Cammyman), and my Warrior German Shepherd, Badger. Release date of MOON CHOSEN is October 18th. I promise it's worth the wait! photo credit to Daniel at Stark Photography. Okay, so which is your favorite?? XXXOOO PC

ANNOUNCING MOON CHOSEN!

Hi Guys! Check out the placeholder for MOON CHOSEN, the first book in my new fantasy series, TALES OF A NEW WORLD! This isn't the final cover, but it does mean that it will be up for preorder soon, and it means the release date of October 18th is getting closer! As we move toward publication, I'll be releasing LOTS of information about the series and the first book, as well as hosting a bunch of cool giveaways. So, stay tuned! Here's some preliminary info: my lovely publisher is labeling the series as YA fantasy (my heroine is 18 - hero is 23), but I'm just writing the books I most want to read and ignoring the genre labels as I tend to do); it is set in the Pacific NW, in and around Portland, OR, and Sauvie Island; the setting time is in the future - centuries after a massive ecological apocalypse that completely changed our world; animals feature predominately in the series - as do ancient goddesses/gods; I LOVE THIS WORLD AND THIS SERIES! More soon! XXXOOO PC

Helpers!

Puppy update! I'm revising my awesome new manuscript, EARTH WALKER (Yes! I'll be giving you publishing details in the coming week!), and the Cast Clan is all situated to help with the rewriting! Of course we have Cammy Cast (on the left), Badger Cast (Warrior German Shepherd in the middle), the new Scottie additions, Kirk and Khan (Khan is hard to see!), and finally Tiberius looking on perplexed by the puppies! Not to worry HoN cat lovers! Tiberius acclimated perfectly and decided he does, indeed, like puppies! And now I'm climbing on my treaddesk and getting to work while my helpers gnaw bones...not sure who has the better work deal...
