Lori Devoti is doing 'A Full Moon of Werewolves' on her blog--daily blogs for a full cycle of the moon!!! There will be all kinds of werewolfy stuff, prizes, and excerpts from books! I'm very pleased to be a part of it later in the month. Go check it out at:


I have to admit, I'm a day late getting the news of Lori's blog up here, (sorry Lori!) but I did celebrate the kick off by sharing an evening with my honey and my 15-year old son watching An American Werewolf in London. The boy had never seen in. For us old fogies--I mean 30-somethings--who were re-living a moment from our past...wow. That movie was so hi-tech back then. The lenghtening hand, feet, face. The honey and I were discussing that and how far technology had come in 28 years while on our way yesterday to have lunch with some fascinating rock-n-roll big-wigs at a sushi bar--see pic below--

that's Curran Murphy {brilliant guitarist formerly of Nevermore and Annihilator, of Shatter Messiah, and now of Legacy Uprising} doing his obligatory chopstick-walrus impression. Very convincing. {And yeah, for the metalheads out there, that's the famous Kelly Conlon of Death and of Monstrosity beside him...}

So, that's why I didn't get this posted yesterday. I was just in awe of the musical talent at the table-did I mention that Legacy Uprising is the band centered around a soon-to-be 14 year old shredding guitarist who can keep up with these legends? Joey (not pictured) is an endorsee of my honey's guitar biz, Strictly 7.

Back to book stuff though...later in the month I get to post an excert from VICIOUS CIRCLE! (Thanks Lori!) So go check it out and keep checking back to see what new daily! Did I mention PRIZES???

Book Cover!

I love this cover! Don Sipley is the artist, you can see more of his work at my website:

And Tanya Huff, author of the Blood Books (love Henry, the romance writing vampire!) gave me a fabulous blurb. Thank you Tanya!!!!

Last Samurai/Hans Zimmer

chocolate and peppermint syrups
Waxing Gibbous...
only a few days til Full Moon.
TAROT of the DAY: (drumroll please....as I launch the website this is a telling day...)


The Knight of Wands Tarot card meaning is a double barrel of fire and enthusiasm.

Meaning excerpted from /www.tarotteachings.com/ : Knight of Wands has his own ideas about how creative and spiritual ideas should be handled. If you want to do things the dinosaur way (traditional, old-fashioned) then this Knight is going to blaze a trail without you. He's fearless too, and will confront anyone with either the tip of his lance, or his sparkly smile depending on which side he needs to play.

So, where can you find this site I'm so excited about?

Go figure, huh? My name DOT com was taken. So, I went with the name of the blog.

I have links to many of the authors whose work I enjoy, the artist who's doing the cover work for VICIOUS CIRCLE, (his name is Don Sipley, and there is a link to a page with his other fascinating artworks, go check him out!) of course Strictly 7 is linked there AGAIN.

Just a note...

I've been busy wrapping up things with Vicious Circle, and wrapping up Hallowed Circle so my wonderful beta readers can have at it. I've also been building my website (will announce it's launching soon), and working on some web pages for Strictly 7 Guitars, as well as scheduling a vacation and a convention visit. I even fired up the old guitar this morning and let the fingers warm up. More, and a Tarot-of-the-day soon!
