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...

Hi Cara,
This will be the first time- and possibly the last- that I will go on-line to look for an author and send her an email. :) I came across your book, Pink Slip Party, at the library and I have read about a quarter of the book. I am very thankful that no one can see over the fences surrounding my backyard, otherwise, they might consider calling the "good humor men" to come and take me away because I am sitting all by myself laughing out loud. I mean throw-your-head-back laughing out loud. I plan to go to the bookstore and look for your other books today. This way I will have something to look forward to after I finish Pink Slip Party. Thanks so much for your humorous writing and for your insightfulness about what it is like to be laid off. I have been there myself (a couple of times) and it was quite a humbling experience. Take care and I look forward to reading your other novels.

I love the library but can't stand to be quiet long. So I tend to just grab at least six books to try out. Luckily I grabbed Every Demon Has His Day and I read it all in couple of hours. It was one of the funniest books I have read in a while and I can't wait for the new book. I hate it but I have to actually take my time at the library next time so I can find more of your work but it will be worth it.

I don't want to be one of "those" people, but I think this is the most direct way (DUH!).
Will there be a new Bard Academy book?
And how's the option working out?
Love your writing, g-fri.
