Catchin' up

We interrupt the parade of guest bloggers--okay, technically I interrupt the parade--to do a little TCB (that's takin' care of business for you non-Elvis fans), and then show you some dog shots.


Congrats to Karen Mahoney, who won a signed copy of Ann Aguirre's Grimspace! Now the rest of you, go buy yourself a copy before the government takes it away. Oh wait, that's egg nog, not Grimspace. Sigh...it's not egg nog itself I miss, it's that pumpkin-flavored soy milk from Silk. Man, it was good on oatmeal.

If you haven't yet, don't forget to comment on my interview with debut author Anton Strout, to win a signed copy of his new urban fantasy Dead to Me.

Coming up we have interviews with:

March 7: Chris Marie Green, author of the Vampire Babylon series
March 11: Caitlin Kittredge, Night Life
March 14: Adrian Phoenix, A Rush of Wings (which as you all know, I loved)
March 18: More TCB from Yours Tru-lee!
March 21: Justin Gustainis, Black Magic Woman
March 25: Rachel Vincent, Rogue

Each of them will be giving away a signed book to one lucky commenter, so be sure to stop by!

To enter, all you have to do is subscribe to my newsletter--put your e-mail address in the box on the sidebar (the one that says "Sign up for Jeri's newsletter"). If you're already signed up, the nice people at the mailing list place will tell you.

Newsletter subscribers will get first look at the brand-new ultra-cool WVMP Lifeblood and Rock 'n' Roll logo, and when the free tie-in short stories come out, they'll get to read them a week before anyone else.


This Saturday, March 8, from 3-5PM I'll be at A Likely Story here in Sykesville, Maryland. I'm psyched to be appearing with fellow authors Tracy Anne Warren (who won the Rita award for Best First Novel last year), Janet Mullany, and Christi Kelly. Rumor has it there'll be punch and pie.

Visit my News and Appearances page to find out where I'll be for the next three months. Lots of exciting gigs, which I'll tell you more about in my next update.


March is Adopt a Vampire Novel Month on author Jaye Wells's blog. Stop by all month to find out why the rumors of the vampire's death are greatly exaggerated (and win prizes, too!).

Jim Hines honored Wicked Game with a LOLbooks cover. Hee.

And now, as promised, here are some furries with my book:

The top shot is Brooke C.'s Chihuahua Riley, and the bottom is Riley's son Elliott, who's half-Pomeranian.

Are your pets bookish? Send me their pics, and I'll make 'em famous-ish!

You didn't have to twist my arm to a gnarled stump. I'll be signing up for the newsletter. ;-)

The upcoming interviews sound fun!

And you're coming to my Borders in May! I hope I can remember!! That's exciting. There aren't usually author events with authors I actually know in the area. :D
