It’s another one of those weird posts. I haven’t had one since last week and yet I really don’t have much today. There were a few author appearances, but for the most part, it’s been mainly new covers. As in 33 new covers. Obviously I’m not going to be posting them all, but you can find them in the FB album. Here’s a sampling:
Gotta thank all the fabulous sites who have dug them all up: All Things Urban Fantasy, Michelle’s Book Blog, Escape Between the Pages, Dark Faerie Tales and SciFiGuy.
Diana Pharaoh Francis has posted a snippet from her upcoming novel, Crimson Wind.
Strangely, this week I’ve actually showed up on two different sites. You can find me talking about writers block on Dark Faerie Tales and my worst read on All Things Urban Fantasy.
