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

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).

Today is the LAST DAY to enter to win a copy of The Hunger Games Official Illustrated Movie Companion! 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!

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?

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!
