Walkabout Wednesday... News and WINNERS!

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.

(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 15:

The week started out pretty quite on the book end of things. ("Book end." Get it? It's a pun.) Not much was happening. Then yesterday I got an email from my editor--wow, it's amazing how much I still enjoy saying those two words together--asking that I send him an in-depth description of my hero and heroine as well as information on costuming because the graphics department was arranging a photo shoot for the cover of Courting Miss Lancaster !!

A photo shoot! I'm picturing enormous fans blowing on two people in costume, making their hair blow while a photographer is yelling things like "Work it!" and "Fab, darling! Fab!" And a lackey is running around providing everyone with premium bottled water. And someone is wearing a beret. I don't know why, but there's a beret.

Being the responsible author that I am, I took the assignment to heart and provided my editor--giggling in glee--with a very in-depth reply. Do you think in-depth means "doctoral dissertation?" 'Cause that's what I sent.

Very, very, very fun. I can't wait to see the cover!!

Now... the winners of the contest. What? You thought I was just going to post them right here. Pshaw. Click on "Read More!" to find out who the lucky two are!

That is super cool about your cover. The Covenant beavers must have been very busy today because I got an email at lunch telling me my second manuscript was accepted. Yay! I tell you these things like we're friends, but really, we're both friends with Aubrey. But that counts so I guess I'll tell you anyway. I think this piece of good news is going to cause me some verbal vomit for a while.

Aw. I never win. Pout. :(

But really? That's so exciting about the photo shoot!! I hope they turn out how I pictured them! (They never do, but I hope anyway!)
