Cover Revel: Angel Diaries Plus Some News!

Ready to see my cover!? Drum roll, please!

After a lot of work from the lovely cover artist, Char (check out her website here for more information), I have to say, I heart this cover. I would definitely recommend this cover artist. Even though I'm very picky when it comes to covers (I think she will agree), I really enjoyed working with her. 

Anyway, this cover has helped propel me forward in my editing, and thanks to this lovely Spring Break from student teaching (THANK THE LORD!) I can now catch up on editing and writing my books again. And promoting. And playing on my Wii.

Blurb: Coming soon! :) 

Which bring me to another big chunk of news: I'm going to be published in an anthology. Well, actually two! The first one is for Fantasy/Science Fiction. Remember Iwishacana/Acanawishi? Well, I took the prologue and entered it into the contest and it won! I'm so glad to hear that Iwishacana/Acanawishi is savable (and has a great concept) and hopefully, I'll get it back on this site and back online. 

I don't know when this will happen, but I have the feeling it will be before Christmas. No promises though! At least you guys will be able to buy the prologue and see what's it like!

Anyway, the other anthology is inspirational. I took some of my old poems and entered it into a contest. As you all know, I'm a very religious person so when I get inspired by the Bible (the whole struck-by-lightening concept rings a bell), I write poems. So I picked the strongest two poems I have and they both got selected!

It's just nice to see that my work (poems, short stories, novellas, and novels) are getting the recognition they deserve.

Anyway, there's my bit of news and my lovely cover. :) Yippee skippee!


  1. Lovely cover, lady! And nice work with the short stuff ... I need to get back to writing real short stories, and then do something with them!

  2. Your cover looks great!!! Much compliments to the artist....

  3. Hey Susan and Kish! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment or should I say compliment, lol?

    @Susan-Thanks! We worked very hard to come up with this cover and I'm glad that it's pleasing to the eye. :)

    I'm happy too! I hope you get back on writing short stories. I have to say it's been a blast and it's nice to write all of those short stories running in my head and test some possible novel ideas.

    One way to get started on writing short stories is to find some writing prompts. I know finding horror prompts and flipping it to paranormal fantasy has been fun.

    Anyway, that's my suggestion. Best of luck and thanks for the congrats and the compliment about my cover! :)

    @Kish-Thanks!! Char did an excellent job and was so patient with me. I would highly recommend her! And her price isn't too bad either. :)
