Thanks so much to Karine for this wonderful review of THE VEIL! "I would highly suggest reading it whether you are 13 or 45." :-)

Thank you to Cherry Blossoms for circulating the press release for IN HIS EYES, a book of YA short stories written from the point of view of hot guys. It's only 99 cents (unless you're Smashwords savvy, then it's free!) Can't beat that, right?

I am SO proud to be a part of this great anthology! Today on Amazon, IN HIS EYES is ranked #2 in both Anthologies and Short Story Collections and #21 in Children's eBooks! WOOT!

And best of all? It's FREE! If you haven't downloaded it yet, now would be a good time! Tell me what you think of my short story Precalculus (a re-telling of Chapter 2 of The Veil, from Luc's point of view).

Just leave a comment on my Indelibles Blog post - Hunger Games: Is The Movie Going To Get It Right? My fave comment will win the movie companion - 150 pages of pretty HG pictures and lots of fun background on how the movie was made!

Check out this interview with me today on B. Kristin McMichael's blog! I talk about The Veil, In His Eyes, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and trying not to sound like a lawyer!
