Cover girl!

Okay, so I'm not a cover girl. And, I don't even have any cover girl make-up to give away. But, I DO have a sneak peek at the new cover for Can't Teach An Old Demon New Tricks, which is out next March.

Check it out. Isn't that... er... baby? demon? adorable...

Yes, there is a toddler half-demon in Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks. And, no, I swear, it is not at all based on either one of my angelic little girls who never, ever throw tantrums at Target or say "no" or try to run into oncoming traffic.

My children are perfect. Just ask their grandmother.

This little tyke, however, has a little devil's streak, and it's up to his super mom, Rachel (you'll remember her as Constance's best friend in Every Demon Has His Day) to save his soul (and her house) from his fire-breathing ways. Luckily, she has the help of a brooding fallen angel (Sam) to help her, which in many ways is an upgrade from Frank the Talking French Bulldog. For those of you who've read Every Demon, you know what I'm talking about. For those of you who haven't - what are you waiting for? Go buy it so my darling little girls (who always eat all their vegetables and then ask for a second helping of broccoli) can go to college one day.

Speaking of my darling girls... from that shriek, I think that naptime appears to be over. Until next time...

Edits done!

Woo-hoo! I've finally finished my "work" editing the sequel to Every Demon Has His Day (Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks) and I can finally breath a little.

In the blur that was frantically rewriting my book under deadline, I missed telling you all about my birthday (The big 3-0 - again! This is my sixth try, and I intend to get it right this time). I also failed to mention my stint as a guest blogger at Yankee Romance Reviewers. Check it out if you really are starving for some shameless self promotion on my part, or if you'd just like to read the steamy excerpt from Every Demon (warning to the prudish - there is a kiss involved).

There is also some other good news for those of you who haven't read ALL my books yet. When Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks is released in spring 2010, Simon and Schuster is also reissuing some of my old classics, including Pink Slip Party and I Did (But I Wouldn't Now) in mass market paperback. That means instead of having to fork over $13, you can now buy them for $7.99. Just in time for the recession! Hooray.

In other, irrelevant to the self-promotion news, it's FINALLY gotten warm in Chicago. I swear it takes longer every year. It's always snow, snow, snow, ice, snow, snow, freezing cold, freezing rain, torrential rain, and then summer. Native Chicagoians will disagree with me, but for this Texas-raised girl, there are ten months of winter and two months of summer here (I say anything below 60 degrees is winter weather - that's what we call it in Dallas).

I'll be back soon to talk more about "Can't Teach An Old Demon New Tricks." Until then, happy summer everybody!
