sunday Sunday SUNDAY!

Okay, yeah it’s a Sunday, and I was still awake at 5am. WTF?????

My signing yesterday was AMAZING!!!!!! Over 60 books sold, and many of those were to complete strangers who had no obligation to buy it! :D Seriously, huge thanks to everyone who showed up, and enormous thanks to AnnaMarie at Barnes & Noble who went way above and beyond to give my book and the signing some awesome push. I’ll try and post some pics later on as soon as I can come up to breathe a bit!

In other book-related news, I just received my revision letter for Blood of the Demon, so everything is chugging away nicely on that front as well. The release has been pushed back one month–it’s now February 23, 2010. Sorry about the delay, but it’s for some very cool reasons. (And yeah, I’m going to pull one of those, “It’s cool and I can’t talk about it!” things. [g])

Also, I was “Dame for a Day” at the Deadline Dames yesterday. But instead of deadlines, I talked about death, so stop on by and check it out! Plus, I’m giving away two copies of Mark of the Demon to random commenters! The giveaway ends at midnight tonight (Sunday, JUne 28th), so hutty on over!

In non-book-related news, in a few hours the family and I will be driving to Florida. The Spouse is attending a conference, and the Kid and I are tagging along to die in the blistering heat to enjoy the sun and the sand. Actually, since I have revisions to work on (and a tight deadline), the Kid will probably end up enjoying some of the childrens programs that the resort offers while I hunker down in a corner with manuscript and laptop. Ah, the glamour!

In the department of “I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this already and if not probably should have done so sooner.”

I’ll be signing copies of Mark of the Demon this afternoon at the Barnes & Noble in Mandeville, LA from 2-4pm.

Answer: extremely

So… wow. A book I wrote is being sold in most major bookstores in North America. How f**king cool is that?

Mark of the Demon, now all electrical!

The e-book version of Mark of the Demon has been available for preorder at the Random House website for quite some time now, but now it’s available on the Kindle as well! Charge up those e-readers!

A box full of awesomeness

I went out earlier today to run errands, and when I came back home there was a box waiting for me.

Hurray! It was THE box!

A box full of books!

However, Angel seems to be over his disdain, and is now reluctant to part with any of them.

Angel covets the books!

The Kid schools me on the use of technology

Kid (who very recently turned 5): Mom, what’s rosemary?

Me: It’s an herb… a kind of plant.

Kid: What does it look like?

Me: Ummm, I’m not really sure.

Kid: You could look it up on the internet!

Me: Why, yes. You’re absolutely right. We should do that.

Kid: Mom. You need to type in PLANTS DOT COM and it will show you what it looks like. That’s how you find out!

Me: You’re terribly smart, dear. Thank you for telling me.

A quick administrative note

I just wanted to let everyone know–especially people new to this site–that first-time commenters to this site have to be approved before the comment shows up. It’s a bit of a pain for everyone, but I had a truly horrible problem with comment spam last year and had to make some changes. That being said, once you’ve had a comment approved here, you’re “in” for life! And, I’m also doing my best to check in frequently and get the new comments approved and posted.

Thanks for your patience!

It’s a book!!!!!

The wonderful David Pomerico at Bantam FedExed me a couple of copies of my book so that I could coo and drool and make goo-goo eyes at them!

See? It’s really a book!

And it has stuff on the spine too…

And on the back as well!

Demon (the cat) gives his approval:

Angel is uninterested…

and then feels the need to wash his butt to remove the taint.

Seraphim kitten is too tired after a day of destroying the curtains to care:

But Fluffy Bunny will give it the love it deserves!
