Today I'd like to just share some exciting news! The third book in THE ELVEN LORDS series, THE LORD OF ILLUSION, won first place in the P/F/SF/F category of the 2013 Golden Quill Published Authors' Contest!
THE LORD OF ILLUSION also finalled in the 2013 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence P/F/F/TT category.
I saw the cover for the Thai version of THE LADY OF THE STORM. It's a little grainy in the image here, but it truly is lovely. It's always fascinating to see how a different culture interprets the story and uses their own vision to create a new cover.
I also received a copy of the German Edition of My Unfair Lady. They used the same cover, but it's thrilling to see my books published in a different language.
And on the personal front, I saw Cyndi Lauper in concert this weekend. She talked to the audience quite a bit, was wackily wonderful as usual, and she sang like a dream. It happened to be her birthday, and her fans knew it, and one of my favorite moments in the concert was when the audience spontaneously broke out into song, singing her Happy Birthday, and making her cry. Here's a shot my sister took with the camera, so it's not the best, but will still help me remember the enchanting evening.
Thanks so much for letting me share my news!
Until Next Time,
My Magical Best,
