I’m back, with a first look at Ben Fogletto’s amazing cover art for Hellfire Lounge 4: Reflections of Evil, coming in August to a bricks-and-mortar and online bookseller near you.

Hellfire Lounge 4 Painting

And if that weren’t enough, Edd Coutts has done a stunning job of capturing the moment when Eddie Woodhouse meets the Luftwaffe on the Hindenburg. Yep, “Glass Transit”, my contribution to the anthology, features Eddie and Ducky “Duke D’Or” Orr, everybody’s favorite hard luck sorcerers, on Nazi Germany’s biggest flying bomb. Don’t say you weren’t warned. ;-)

The scene on the bridge

And I’ve posted pictures of RavenCon! The short version can be found in my Thursday Thirteen for Beyond the Veil. But there’s more, lots more, on my Flickr page. Enjoy!

The Rainbow Awards like us, they really like us

I’m not the only one who thinks the cover for Hellebore & Rue is simply gorgeous. The cover made it to the finals in the first round of Rainbow Awards judging. So did a cover by one of my favorite people: Anne Cain. Let the best cover win, even if I really, really hope it’s ours. :-)

Sparkly Cover Goodness

Yeah, I know, you’ve been wondering whether I forgot how to do this blog thing. Not quite. I just wanted to save it until I had something to make you go Ooooooh! And I do, Ben Fogletto’s wonderful cover for Hellfire Lounge 2, where you’ll find one of my darker little stories, “Billy’s Monster”.
I don’t have an ISBN or release day yet, but when I do, you’ll hear it here first. Not to worry, you won’t be bored in the meantime. It’ll take days to see all the fabulous details in this image. Enjoy!

Cover Glee

It’s now live: my cover for “Hoodoo Cupid”, coming February 4, 2010, from Red Rose Publishing.

Isn’t it gorgeous? The artist is Red Rose’s Art Director Shirley Burnett, and she totally aced it.
Cheers and big, big smiles,
