A GINGERSNAP CAT CHRISTMAS cover reveal, plus vampire novel news

Hi, everybody! February knocked me down with a nasty cold/bronchitis illness so I’m still getting into the swing of things.

A Gingersnap Cat Christmas was finished, um…January, probably? And is in “post” so to speak. But since I missed my deadline, rather than releasing it right away, I’ll be looking into making it into a print book for next Christmas!

In the meantime, please enjoy the fabulous finished cover!

A GINGERSNAP CAT CHRISTMAS Book Cover: A ginger cat with a halo smiles at a terrified black and grey kitten hiding behind him.

(My husband desperately wants me to animate the kitten rising up…Any volunteers?)

In other news, my nosferatu novel hit 40K…and it’s just getting started! Hoo-wee!

A quote on tense, plus horror fiction news!

“Books let you know what tense they want to be written in.” — David Mitchell, from Make it now: the rise of the present tense in fiction

As a writer working on a fantasy story (the greatest Nosferatu love story of all time) that for some reason is first-person, present tense, I found that quote to be hugely reassuring.

In other news, I am preparing a new horror novelette to go out to a proofreader. If you’ve ever had a cat bring you gifts, you will probably like it.
