October 10 is a very special day for my new releases.
Exactly 15 years ago today, this was my new release:
9 months in the draft stage. She’s been in editing ever since.
When she was 2, she insisted on wearing those Snow White shoes everywhere. And this my is my first release today (please ignore the very ratty couch. Also, the kid on the left is a newer edition):
She’s a few inches taller than me and has way more attitude. She’s a great kid.
So today would be special to me anyway. (And hey, shouldn’t I be the one getting cake and presents? Twelve hours of back labor say yes.) But to top things off I have two new books out today!
One of them is Bone Dry, the third in the Bones series. If you’ve read the first two, I hope you’re excited to read more about Dylan and Chris’s strange little farm. This time we’ll pay particular attention to their friend, Ery Phillips. If you haven’t read the rest of the series, you can jump in now and you’ll do fine.
In addition, my short story “Standby” comes out today in the Stranded anthology. This story has a touch of magical realism and takes place in an airport. I’ve always felt that if there’s such a thing as purgatory, it’s very much like an airport.
Stranded is available at Wayward Ink Press, Amazon, and all the usual suspects.
A new book or two might not be quite as exciting as a new baby, but there’s less pain involved.
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this special day!
Also, don’t forget the Fieldingpalooza blog tour and contests, going on right now!
