Stallion of Ash and Flame ~ the Cover Art

What do you think, my adored Big Kittens? Of course, the Kougar is a dancing happy author girl with Jinger Heaston’s design. The couple perfectly represents Trail and Seneca. The fiery stallion is Trail when he phases into a stallion of flame to devour the towering blazes that rage through the national forest.
Since moi is blogging today, Thursday, September 10th, at THE ROMANCE STUDIO, her new cover art is featured. If you’d like to know how the design represents the story, claw click on over ~ ~

Here’s the beginning ~

Proud Owner of New Cover Art

Okay, I couldn’t resist showing it off. Yesterday, I received my ‘official’ cover art for STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME, my next release from Siren-BookStrand, coming in Fall 2009.
Jinger Heaston is the cover artist and has designed most of my previous cover art. I am continually in awe of Jinger’s creativity and the different works of art she comes up with as the cover artist for Siren-BookStrand.
This time, I got to work with Jinger personally on the final version. Not only is Jinger professional and willing to listen, she’s fun.

Nope, no official release date yet. The excitement mounts... uh, oh... mounts. Trail accomplishes that exceptionally well with his Seneca.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 256 ~

Sylva felt like knives twisted inside her as she watched Marina nod. She’d managed to do exactly what she wasn’t supposed to do. There was no going back to rectify it, either. Marina and Grant were far from stupid. They realized she had some sort of psychic ability. Hunching her shoulders a bit, she wished Zeke would return. He’d know how to handle the situation, probably. Not to mention she’d know for certain he was safe. Surreptitiously, she let her mind wander in his direction again. Zeke and Ranson still ‘discussed’ things with the Long Walker. “Still okay?” Marina whispered.

Zeke felt cooperation loosen the Long Walker’s resisting body. “Superior observations,” the man repeated. “Yeah, I got a few. You ain’t gonna like one of them, Ranson. Saw your father speakin’ real private like with Olaf Thorenson shortly before I left town on your trail. Oakes is his messenger boy.” Zeke glanced at Ranson. Nothing flickered in his gaze. “Hear anything important?” Ranson neutrally growled. “Nope. Saw ‘em shake hands on an agreement. Also saw a Secret Circle coin that Oakes dropped when he was fishin’ in his pocket. Retrieved it like it was nothin’ special. Pretended I didn’t see.”
