Another quickie.  Eppie Award-winning fantasy author Bianca D'Arc talks about her dragon shapeshifters at the Fantasy and Enchantment Blog today.  If dragons are your thing, you won't want to give it a miss.
Cheers and best Tuesday wishes,
Jean Marie

That pic of the Japanese maple on our deck wasn't taken last fall.  It was taken twenty minutes ago.  If you squint hard enough you can even see the budding azalea budding behind the fence at the far right.
Told Greg it was his fault for getting all emotional about Karl Muck's version of Parsifal last night.  Some things are just wrong.  Like snow in April in northern Virginia.  Or like a left-leaning Valentinian gnostic loving Wagner.  (Have I mentioned his cartoons lately?)  He still didn't get it.  LOL
Not too much else to report.  Been burrowing in what one of my fellow Samhellions calls "the writing cave" all week.  I'm going to finish Highway from Hell by next Saturday if I have to write non-stop.  Well, starting Monday.  Still have to survive Mom's Easter plans first.  ;-)
Also joined the Fantasy and Enchantment blog with a great group of Samhain fantasy writers: Jennie Andrus, Bianca D'Arc, Dayna Hart, Carolan Ivey, Melissa Lopez and most especially Gia Dawn--who will kill me for that when she finds out I wrote that.  Heh heh.  The group blog is just getting started, but we plan lots of great things, including a regular Thursday Thirteen and a newsletter.
And not a minute too soon!  The prospect of filling a regular mailing all by myself was giving me chills.  My life's boring.  That's why I became a writer, after all.
Wishing you lots of chocolate and the best of the season, however you celebrate it.  Cheers!

Isn't it pretty?  It's all pink and shiny and it's mine, Mine, MINE!
Well, actually, it's Teri's and mine--for this year, at any rate.  With Nine You Get Vanyr scored an Honorable Mention (#2) in the sf/fantasy book category of Love Romances Ebook Cafe's 2006 reader's poll.  I've been grinning ever since I heard.
Samhain did well too.  The Cafe's readers rated it as the year's best publisher, and Samhain author Bianca D'Arc scored two top prizes: Best ShapeShifter Book and Best Paranormal Author of 2006.  WTG, Bianca!
I will now return you to your regularly scheduled Saturday programming.  I need to go pet my precious.  While I'm at it, I should probably pet my Preditor and Editor button before it starts feeling neglected.  With Nine You Get Vanyr placed second in the sf/fantasy category there too.  I guess the novel has become the Avis of 2006.
Well, I do plan on trying harder.  ;-)
