Hi all! Time for the news portion of the week. In personal news, my spring garden has been pretty much smooshed by our late season ice storm. It started out as just heavy, wet snow, but turned into clingy ice by sunrise. We've lost half of our tallest pine and the pine branches have done a lot of damage to other plants in their falling. I'm hoping that's the last gasp so the snow will clear and we can see how bad it really is. You can sort of see the mess in this pic:
My stint as Author of the Month continues over at My Fiction Nook today with the focus on Offbeat Crimes - yaaaay! Plus a personal story from me - one I've told before but I feel it's relevant now.
Skim Blood and Savage Verse is included in the rundown - though for an excerpt, go to the Pride Publishing page. We didn't have the official excerpt when I sent all the stuff to Sandra at MFN. (Skim Blood is available at Pride - general release is coming April 4!)
Not Offbeat Crimes related - Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists is up for Book of the Week over at Love Bytes. So, you know, if you have a chance and you'd care to vote...

Last but not least - I'm working. Promise. Feral Dust Bunnies is moving along, finally. Anyone who's been with me a bit knows I struggle badly at the beginning of writing a story and it gathers momentum like an avalanche of doom as I progress. Should hit about the halfway point before the end of the week. :)
