What Am I Trying to Convey?! #horridart

Some of you may have seen my horrid attempt at drawing a scene in my newest book, LOST. (Scifi, in case you're wondering, and really, really awesome!)

I draw these scenes every now and then so that when I'm writing, I keep locations, people, creature counts, and everything else straight.

As you can see, I'm no artist. Not by any means. Sure, I can sit down and stare at something or someone and attempt to mimic their lines. But drawing something from my head? Pssh! It's all stick figures and squiggly lines.

Now, let me give you a little bit of information on LOST. 16 year-old Clarissa Anderson believes she is the second oldest human alive, thanks to an alien cat intent on creating a new species.

They don't live on Earth. I won't tell you why or how or any of that.

With all that said, I want YOU to tell me what I'm trying to convey here. Come up with WHATEVER you want based on my picture. Then, when I feel we have enough entries, I'll post a teaser from LOST (including this scene, unedited) and send a present to whoever comes up with the most creative interpretation!

So, get to work. Tell me what I'm trying to convey! There are PRIZES!!!

How Would You Like a Hot Guy?

I'm not sure anyone has ever looked at me and said: Man, she's so reserved and refined and mature. In fact, if someone has ever uttered those words about me, please let me know so that I may ask you why.

I work with a group of adultren (this is adult and children merged into one). We're all pretty goofy and love having fun.

So, when a few of us caught wind that a male model was interviewing for a temp position within our office, we decided to head off to the lobby and check out said model. On our break time, of course.

We stepped off the elevator and immediately launched into fits of giggles, faces red and probably all trying to cover the same embarrassment spawning from our immature behavior. We're all grown women, after all. But the "applicant" was hot. Tall, dark, muscular. His only downside was a baby face that made us all feel like cougars, which brought his 10 rating down to an 8.5--at least for me.

To get a better look at him, we decided to grab water from the snack bar, walk around the front of the building, then enter the glass doors, but when we returned to the lobby, he was on his way up the elevators with his potentially new boss . . . so we said, "Wait!" and snagged a ride with them.



The "potentially new boss" made a couple comments about the peanut gallery, even suggested he got onto the wrong elevator . . . .

Fast-forward to today.

"So and so (yes, I'm hiding names to protect the innocent) said to tell you sorry for not being able to hire the model, but he asked me to give you this," my boss said, tossing a Men of the Islands 2013 Calendar at me.

Gasp!! I could never hang this at my desk. I need to keep up my reserved, refined, mature reputation!

So, dear fans, if you'd like this calendar, let me know. I'll send it to you . . . signed. With maybe some other things, as well. You know, pens, new book teasers, a surprise of some sort!

You know you want to take this thing off my hands.

You know it!

Just tell me you want it in the comments (tell me what you want what you really really want).

Surprise Cover Reveal

Well, I figure all my fans are probably wondering where I'm at. I assure you, I'm not dead. But I have been taking some time for me. Who knew three years of juggling kids, work, writing, promotions, and LIFE would finally weigh on me?!

So, though I've still been writing, I've taken a step away from social media. Why? Well, I've even scaled down on as much writing, too. I'm tired, folks. The stories are punching me from the inside, but my eyes can't stay open long enough to write them. I figured a few weeks would help me get back on track.

Anyway, to celebrate my step back into the "real" world, I'm here to present fellow Curiosity Quills Author Brandice Snowden's cover! This is a surprise post. She has no idea her fellow authors banded together to put this BEAUTIFUL cover out into the world. Yeah, Dawna Raver (who set this all up) rocks.

So, anyway, check out that cover. And make sure you add this book to your TBR pile on Goodreads!

BLURB: Powerful veils hold Earth apart from realms mortals believe are merely tales of myth and legend. They are opening again, leaving humans vulnerable, and the monsters ready to strike.

Marie Leveau prefers to remain alone and anonymous, for she knows what goes bump in the night, and sacrificing others isn't part of her personality. But life isn’t always about getting what you want.
Contracted by The Organization, a shadow government agency, Marie is assigned a new Special Ops team, one she must introduce via Paranormal 101 to the very monsters they didn’t believe existed. Marie and her team are sent to Asia in search of an ancient relic, leading them into the jungle and tests of a fragile new bond. Despite the initial distrust, and an unholy battle with a demon-god, the team survives, their lives forever changed and woven into an unbreakable tapestry.

Returning home, the new friends sense the very people responsible for their safety are willing to sacrifice them all in the name of power.

They learn of a prophecy, and The Paladin, the one person able to close the veils and keep the mortals safe.
With few clues, the team must unravel the prophecy and figure out how to close the veils. Or the monsters will use Earth as ground zero, innocents be damned.

Adult Urban Fantasy: Intended for readers 17 years of age and older.
