Stuff!

First, the most important thing. I have added an Amber Alert ticker to my sidebar. Mine is the US code; there is one for Canada as well.

I urge all of you to click on the button, or the link above, and add it too, and make a donation if you can.


Second, Anna J. and I got the cover for our January EC release, Demon's Triad. Check it out:




It's a pretty hot cover, no? Except I hate the chick's tacky earrings and necklace. The tank top isn't great either. But all in all, I think it's awesome. Very sexy, very reflective of the mood of the book. (Yes, this is the one we think will be X rated.)

AND, the latest issue of JERR (Just Erotic Romance Reviews) came out, and Blood Will Tell got a 5-STAR review!

"Explosive, orgasmic, riveting are just a few adjectives that describe Blood Will Tell by December Quinn. Ms. Quinn has taken an age-old tale, thrown in modern day lust and action, and has written a story with enough drama and sex to keep you rooted to your spot until the last word is read...Bravo for a story well written."

Until the next issue comes out, the entire review is available only through the JERR Yahoo Group, but once it's been moved to the archives I'll post a link to read the whole thing (or you can join and read it there!)

So color me VERY happy, five stars from JERR makes me feel pretty good indeed!

Not much else going on here. I'm about to start Chapter Five of The Demon Inside (my PD sequel)--I've added a little ticker/counter thingie to the sidebar as well. Remember what I said about avoiding work? Just wait, soon I'll be baking again.)

And we have now gone two entire days without rain.

Well done, December!

Anna J. Evans said...

Congrats on the JERR review!! You rock.

And our cover rocks...mostly ;). I was saving it to show on my blog one day this week when I didn't have much to say which is like....everyday, lol.

Hugs,

Anna

Those are some muscles on that guy's back! Totally distracts from the earrings (seriously, I didn't notice them until you pointed them out)

Congrats on the kick ass cover and fabulous review!

Very nice, December. Congrats to you and your co-author.

I am not surprised at the reviews. -V95

December/Stacia said...

Thanks Bernita! :-)

Heh heh Anna. The problem is, it makes her look awfully Miami and not at all Pacific Northwest. But oh well. I still think for the most part it's pretty hot.


I know, he is awfully muscley, isn't he Seeley? Thanks!


Thanks V95! I'm surprised, but then I would be wouldn't I?

Robyn said...

Congrats! Great review!

Hee, hee- the girl on the cover looks like she should have the words "Bite Me" right below her.

BernardL said...

Congratulations on your new cover and your review. I hope it multiplies your sales. Besides the erotic aspect, Blood Will Tell had s couple of very good fight scenes too.

I always feel strange when they make me put on that dark curly wig for the pictures, but a pay check is a pay check. By the way, did you know that I can open a soda can with my back muscles?

Angie said...

Congrats on the great review. :D

And I agree that the rippling back completely distracts from the chick -- I didn't notice she was wearing any jewelry at all until I read further down and you mentioned it. [innocent humming]

December/Stacia said...

Heh, Robyn, she does a bit doesn't she? No vampires in this one, though. Mostly just witches.

Thanks Bernard! Yeah, I'm pretty proud of the fight scenes, and at least one review singled them out which made me happy. :-)


But can you crack a walnut with your butt, Paca?

Cara Carnes said...

I love the cover...it took me a while to read through your post because my eyes kept trailing back to him...lol.

Congrats on the review! That is awesome!

kis said...

My congrats on your cover and blammo review are as heartfelt as on your two days free of rain. Which is to say, WAHOO!

Shelley Munro said...

I like the new cover! Congrats on the great review. I noticed it when I read my newsletter :-)

Rebecca said...

congrats on the review, December!

What's wrong with those earings ...?? I LIKE hoops!!

Rhian / Crowwoman said...

congrats - that was a great story and awards well deserved. HOT cover! Can't wait to get my hands on a book with both you and Anna contributing. Wahoo!

December/Stacia said...

Hey, thanks Cara! And welcome!


Wahoo indeed, kis! I love rain but it is nice to not have to worry aout raincoats and umbrellas when going out, especially with two little ones. :-) And the review is just awesome.


Thanks Shelly! How awesome to see you here!


Thanks Rebecca! Nothing's wrong with the earrings themselves, it's just...Aleeza (the character) isn't a jewelry girl at all. Plus I don't like gold, but that's a personal preference. I never wear it.


Thanks Rhian! Our first co-written book (As the Lady Wishes) comes out in November, actually, but we think Demon's Triad is much, much better. :-)

December/Stacia said...

Thanks Angie! Did you notice Anna's name is right over his butt?

(Sorry, I realized I called you Annie, because I was about to type "Anna", and messed up. Oops. Sorry.)

Sam said...

Hi December!
Silly question about the Amber alert thingy - I went to the site and it said it was last updated in 2006? Is it discontinued?

December/Stacia said...

I think they just mean the site was last updated then--there was a new alert yesterday on my ticker (thankfully a false alarm) so the system itself seems to still be up and running.

Camille Alexa said...

Cool, December.

That cover's very...hooteriffic?

pacatrue said...

Have you talked about the co-authoring process on here before I came on board? Care to discuss how you two worked together?

Sparky Duck said...

Ya see, I liked the tank top.

December/Stacia said...

Hooterific...lol thanks Camille!


Oooh, good idea Paca, I'll have to do that one later! *adds it to list*


It's not the tank top itself, it's that again, Aleeza's really more the silk-or-leather type. :-) Picky picky, I know. Welcome!
