33 years and 2 days ago, I saw Duran Duran in concert for the first time and fell in love with them. I mean, I was already in love with them, but seeing them live and in person solidified the love affair for years to come…
That love is still very much alive and well. They’ve continued to record new music and innovate and be a force to reckon with. I will love them always. But, nostalgia has hit me rather hard lately and I’ve plunged headlong into my teenage years…
This is a cover they did and this show is from 1982 when they were still young and it just always makes me think I’m 14 again and I want to dance and sing the house down…
With the live action adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast coming out this week and all the excitement (Luke Evens, I mean C’mon now… The man is… and yes, Emma Watson, she’s absolutely perfect as Belle), I thought Lindsey Stirling’s musical interpretation is a lovely addition… (And if you think she transforms into Belle at the end, think again…)
If you browse my website, you’ll find that these cover place holders are all over the place. Between all the Ellora’s Cave books, several Loose Id books, and now the Samhain Publishing books, along with new books being written, there are many, many Cover Coming Soon images. More than 18…
I was not planning to have all these books returned to me in such a short amount of time (though to be fair, the Loose Id books are because I opted to not renew the contracts). However, there are more books now NOT available with my name on them than there are available with.
I ask for your patience as I write new books, revise these older titles, and work on coming up with a plan for it all. I had a plan at the beginning of the year. With Samhain closing it’s doors, that plan went out the window as most of my plans do.
The additional books that will be re-released as soon as I can fit them all in and get them re-covered are:
Pink Buttercream Frosting
Sweet Caroline (Blue Jeans and Hard Hats)
Cracklin’ Rosie (Blue Jeans and Hard Hats)
Malachi’s Word (The Bar Next Door)
Eli’s Promise (The Bar Next Door)
Arctic Shift (Denali Heat)
Abe’s Law (The Bar Next Door) has been started.
Denali Heat #2, #3 have been started as well.
Forever In Blue Jeans (Blue Jeans and Hard Hats) has been written and finished. It was self-published, but I removed it to wait for Sweet Caroline and Cracklin’ Rosie to come available from Samhain (sooner than planned, apparently).
Things are in the works and I’ll keep you updated when titles will be re-published.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
