See me at Dragoncon and the Decatur Book Festival

Hello, all. If any of you guys will be at Dragoncon this weekend, I'll be on a panel on Sunday morning at 10:00 so make your way through the maze of meeting rooms for the writers' track and introduce yourself. I'll be wearing a Raven Hart tee shirt. I won't be able to make the panel they've got me down for on Monday.

On Sunday I'll be signing books at the GRW booth at the Decatur Book Festival from 2 to 4, so drop by if you're there.

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

Man, are you guys ready for fall or what?
Hello, everybody. I don’t know about you, but here in the sunny southland, I’m fixing to melt. I can’t even get my dog to go outside. I was in Savannah the week of the sixth and it was over a hundred. I stayed on Tybee island but it was too hot to go to the beach. I hung out with Jack and irregulars at the garage on Victory drive, visited William and the gang at the mansion and ate at Clary’s diner. Clary’s was mentioned in “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” but isn’t in the Savannah Vampire Chronicles because they’re open only for breakfast and lunch, so the sun-sensitive guys can’t go. Anyway, the gang said to tell ya’ll hello.
Latest Contest Winners
The winner of the June contest (the pair of goldstone earrings and Raven Hart earrings; see the photo uploaded to an earlier blog) is Lori of Pheonix, Arizona. Marcia Wallace of Omaha, Nebraska, is the July winner of some sodalite bat earrings and Raven Hart earrings.
September Contest Prize
I’ve gotten some fan mail lately from my readers of the male persuasion, which I really appreciate! So I decided that I would add an option of a necklace (I’ll try and make it “manly”) OR earrings for the prize in the September contest. So here’s the deal—the winner can choose between a hand-carved bat necklace or earrings made out of his or her choice of the following stones: amethyst, gold stone, tiger eye, jasper (red), or rose quartz. And I’ll throw in a pair of Raven Hart earrings. See the photo I uploaded to a previous blog for a glimpse of the bling.
The Vampire’s Kiss has a cover. What do you think?
What do you think about the cover of the Vampire’s Kiss? I like it. It’s out a couple of days after Christmas. For some reason I couldn't upload the image to the blog, but you guys can check it out on Amazon.
