Cover for Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance and a CONTEST

The winner of the Winter Solstice contest is: Chelsea! Congratulations, Chelsea. Send me your email address so I can contact you about your gift card choice. Thanks so much to everyone who participated. Happy Solstice to all!Here's the cover for the Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance, which contains my story, "Blood Song." It will be released April, 2009 here in the USA (Feb., 09 in the UK). Just for fangs and giggles, I'm going to hold a contest until the Winter Solstice (my second favorite holiday after Halloween/Samhain!). Okay, here's the deal: Leave a comment, telling me what the fellow on the cover is thinking. Be creative (but remember that kids read this blog, too!) I'll pick a winner on the evening of Dec. 21 (the longest night -- what a delicious metaphor) and the winner will receive -- drum roll -- a $25 gift certificate from Borders or Barnes & Noble (your choice).

So, there you go. Have at it!

There's a wolf howling in my ear and it's really freaking annoying.

"When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a bloody full moon and the howl of my dear lover's fear."

I'm not sure what he's thinking, but he seriously reminds me of Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday from Tombstone. Right now, I have Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday's voice in my head, however, I can't pick up on what he's saying, but I am so totally loving just listening to him talk.

''They put way too much blush on me. I mean I'm supposed to look like a vampire, why do I need blush? And I know that little piece of hair is out of place on my forehead again. Wait, I'm doing a photo shoot. Ok. Think like a vampire! Look like a vampire! Look sexy! Look smoldering! Sell this book with your hypnotizing stare and magical vampy powers!''

Come my beloved, I will show you what a full moon lit night entails. Let me take you away from the howling of the wolf and protect you from other dangers of the night. Do you trust me? Fear not. Come let us go. Let us not waste any time. We have a long night of adventure ahead of us.

I think the vampire is thinking:

"Wolf, it's what's for dinner."

or

"Wolf, the other white meat."

"I'm so sexy, I set the moon on fire"

To explain...it's a wolf howling at what I would ASSUME to be the moon, but it looks like a ball of fire...so there you have it, he's so sexy, he sets the moon on fire, and he knows!

What a fun contest. :)
