Cover Reveal and Available for Preorder: Chenoire!

First, if you get a chance, head over to the Happy Tails and Tales blog today to read about some meat (really!) and win a copy of Christmas in Dogtown, a sweet paranormal holiday story set in Louisiana. If you don't have a Kindle and already have a copy of "Dogtown," I'll substitute a book from my ridiculous TBR pile!

FINALLY, I can talk about my not-quite-secret project. Welcome to Chenoire, an isolated community in the wilds of St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. It's a short paranormal romance that was adapted from a story I wrote a year or so ago. You'll meet Faith Garrity and Zackary Prejean, and an interesting culture that might involve alligators!

It's up for presale at Amazon for $1.99 and will automatically download on its release date of December 18.

And not to give anything away much, but yep, those are scales on the cover dude's back :-)

  3. Thanks, guys! I am really happy with the cover too.

    I guess, if it's possible, the review of the original story should come down? If that's not too much trouble. I think it would be confusing since the character names are different and there are a few other changes as well. {I think Rene is in a pout now that it's not his story anymore!)

  4. U of Tenn. researchers published study showing tool use by Louisiana alligators! They cover snout, jaws with sticks as they float in water, making a nice perch for birds. Just in time for the new Louisiana story.
    "Entitled "Crocodilians use tools for hunting," the article explains that wading birds nesting near the alligators (which the birds tend to do for protection from other predators) try to grab the sticks and end up as lunch.

    The authors are V. Dinets from the University of Tennessee's Psychology Department and J.C. Brueggen and J.D. Brueggen, both of the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park in Florida."

    1. I love that story--they are smarter than people think! Another bit of gator trivia: the American Alligator is found only in the southeastern U.S. There is also a Chinese alligator that is a big smaller. The only place in the U.S. that has both alligators and crocodiles (which grow much larger) is Florida. Because I know everyone's burning to know more about gators!

    1. Thanks, Aurian! I wish I could somehow tear down those barriers between Amazon's publishing imprints and the other booksellers but I don't think that wall's coming down anytime soon. Bookstores won't carry our print books either. It's not really hurting Amazon; it's hurting the authors and the readers.
