It’s gorgeous and sunny in DC today (for once) and I am home with Q, who is making lots of noise as I type this. She is a big talker, this baby. (I wonder where she gets it from?) She has a few words: Dada, Rio, uh-oh, and hi. Sailor Boy insists she says Mama, too, but I only hear it when she’s crying, and gosh darn it, I don’t think that should count.
Right now, Rio is scratching at the back door to be let in, and Q is standing on the other side of that door, going “Rio! Rio! Rio! Rio!” They have a beautiful love, my two girls.
Hey, guess what? I got my cover for For Darkness Shows the Stars. Is v. pretty. I shall show it to you very soon.
Also, I’m getting a lot of questions about the unicorn in my last post. This one:
And why it is standing so calmly near sheep. My guess is it’s full?
The picture, non-photoshopped, was taken by my agency sister, G Marie Merante, at a vineyard near her home.
Yes, there are unicorns. What, you think I’m writing fantasy? Ha!
In other news, I’m catching up on my reading. I’m headed to the NINC conference next week and there are all these books I want to have read before I go — like the newest series by Julie Leto, and Dark Passage by MJ Putney.
Speaking of Putney, have you read DARK MIRROR? That’s the first in the series. It is an awesome time travel fantasy that takes place in a magical Regency England AND World War II.
When was the last time YOU read a WWII book?You should totally read this one. It’s magic and Dunkirk and Mary Jo Putney. What is not to love?
That’s why I’m giving away a SIGNED copy this week.
