I just discovered that I somehow sent my interior book designer (the person whose job it is to make the inside of a book as well designed as the outside) a copy of Children of the Fallen that has NO ITALICS. That’s right, she has done all her lovely work on a manuscript that [...]
The current iteration of the cover…
You might notice that the title has changed. If you feel like commenting, I’d love to know what you think this book is about—I don’t mean in-depth analysis, just that sense you get when glancing at a cover, “oh, that’s historical romance,” or, “that’s kick-butt [...]

Like, VERY soon. Like NOW! Toby on amazon.

In my guise as Waking Dreams Press chief of staff, I’m working with an artist on the cover art for Toby Streams the Universe. (I’m still, at this late date, ambivalent about this title. I hate that.) I’m so nervous! It’s terrifically fun to put out a book, making all the creative choices myself, getting [...]
We’re all sick around here. Snot, coughs, that hurty skin feeling, ugh. We’ve been socked into the couch with blankets, discarded vitamin C packs, a mountain of crumbled tissues, watching endless tv. Thank goodness for streaming netflix on the wii.
