Old Blood (it’s not about vampires)

Thanks to Bret Tay­lor and Insom­nia Stock, we have a cover for the novella Old Blood (#5.5). This book will be released in July as a novella told from Pippa’s (aka Creepy Clown Lady) POV. It will be longer than The Ben­son and will be avail­able in paper­back and e-format, HOWEVER, unlike The Ben­son, it can not be read as a stand­alone — mean­ing please don’t read this book until you’ve read On Demon Wings. It needs to go between ODW and Book #6, Into the Hollow.

Speak­ing of book #6 — I know I just fin­ished On Demon Wings but I might just start writ­ing Into the Hol­low soon. I’ve got so much on the go so I may pick at it here and there but Perry and Dex have their hooks in me. DAMN THOSE TWO!

BTW con­grats to the win­ners of the ODW ARCs! There will be more give­aways com­ing up :)

On Demon Wings ARC Giveaway!

I’m going to be embark­ing on a blog tour for On Demon Wings a week before the release. As I’ll be send­ing the par­tic­i­pat­ing blog­gers ARCs of On Demon Wings ahead of time, I thought some lucky folks should share in the fun too.

(it’s early morn­ing as I type this, par­don me if I don’t make sense).

As such, I’m going to do a give­away. It will run from today (April 23rd) until Fri­day the 27th. This is for five e-format copies of On Demon Wings which will be emailed to the win­ners on May 2nd.

The only stip­u­la­tion is that these are ARCs — Advanced Review Copies — so ide­ally I’d like the win­ners to review the book on GoodReads or Amazon/B&N (though the lat­ter will have to go live there first on May 13th).

Cover Reveal — Lost in Wanderlust

I couldn’t be hap­pier with this one. When I envi­sioned the cover for this book, I saw Jamie on a beach with beau­ti­ful sun­set col­ors. What are the odds I’d stum­ble across the piece of art­work with a girl that looks exactly like Jamie to boot (wild blonde hair, nomad style)? Even though the book is told from Chris’s POV, Jamie is just as impor­tant of a char­ac­ter. And a Hugh Grant-ish jour­nal­ist star­ing fondly at the sea doesn’t make for a good cover ;)

Design by the won­der­ful Phat­Puppy Art.

I hope you’ll give my devi­a­tion into Con­tem­po­rary Romance a chance. It’s hilar­i­ous, fun, and not the slight­est bit cheesy or sappy. Well, maybe a lit­tle bit. And you’ll love Chris. I promise.

Mean­while for all you Exper­i­ment in Ter­ror fans, I came across these cool pins on Pin­ter­est. I still don’t know what Pin­ter­est in, but some­one might!

Concert Photography

As I was perus­ing the inter­webs today, I noticed that Soundgar­den was mak­ing the news. And so was I. A few pho­tos I took from my gig as a music journo and con­cert pho­tog­ra­pher have been mak­ing the rounds here: http://consequenceofsound.net/2012/04/check-out-soundgarden-live-to-rise/

and here: http://ology.com/post/67881/stream-live-to-rise-soundgarden-s-first-new-song-in-57-years

And man, do I love these pho­tos? My cam­era was always kind of shitty so I’m super glad these turned out well enough to be flounced around the world. Oh and I do love shoot­ing Cor­nell. :) I love talk­ing to him too, just check out this inter­view I did with him.

That top photo, plus the fol­low­ing two, also made it into Con­se­quence of Sound’s Best Pho­tos of the Year List!

If you want to take a look at some of my con­cert pho­tog­ra­phy, you can find them off of my arti­cles here or click this link to get a select few of my faves!
