My girls all together


I received a first copy of Witch Fury a couple days ago (the book releases on June 2nd). My girls look good together, don’t you think? *g* I stuck it up on the shelf without looking at it much. I flip through when I get the first copy (with a blissful look on my face, I’m sure), check the back for the teaser except (in Witch Fury there’s a sneak peek at Wicked Enchantment, which will come out in January) and check the dedication. I don’t usually look that much closer, however.

I have this thing about viewing the final book too closely. I’ve always had it, even back in the earliest days of my career. Once that final book is in your hands, there’s no changing or tweaking it and, inevitably, if I read parts of the book in this stage I find tiny little changes I would like to make.

So no reading, only flipping. 😉

Regarding the dedication, I’ve been waiting a while to find the right book to dedicate to this particular person and this was the book. But that’s a topic for another post, maybe next week sometime. Have a great day, all! I’m dealing with a sickish child today.

Right now, she’s sitting at the dining room table feeling a bit better, playing with stickers, markers and crayons on a big white piece of paper. It’s a beautiful day today. Too pretty for an active toddler who loves to be outside to be sick, but what are you going to do? The germs, they have no mercy.

Today I’m working on a free story for you all. It’s sort of a post-series tale for one of the characters in the Elemental Witches series that I get a lot of mail about. That’s all I’ll say right now. *g* Any guesses about which secondary character it might be? I hope to have it finished and posted to my web site by the time Witch Fury releases.

    Hope the little one gets better soon, I went through all that last week with both daughters…it’s no fun at all!

  6. They look awesome, Anya.
    And yeah, I could imagine not looking too closely lest you see something you SO want changed, and it’s too late.
    The covers on the Witch series SO rock!!

  7. Very pretty Anya!
    Sad to hear about the sickling. My hubby has been sick the past few days. It’s nearly as bad as a child being sick.

    Can’t wait to read Witch Fury!

  8. Thanks everyone. Kidlet better today. Yay!

  9. Your writing about secondary excited about that..I think maybe is about Stefan Faucheux? if it is, then I’m going to be really happy.
