Werewolves are a Girl's Best Friend

This weekend was a non-stop whirlwind of activity. Wow! First of all, on Friday I got permission to reveal this beauty:

After waiting so long after announcing COVETED, it's so awesome to have a cover to add icing to the cake. And oh my what a lovely cake. If you'd like to learn more about how werewolves are a girl's best friend, feel free to add me to your Goodreads list.

Not long after my cover reveal I had to get to work. This weekend my RWA chapter hosted the awesome Debra Dixon for her Goal Motivation Conflict workshops. And let me tell you they were such a huge help. I'm plotting out my next two projects and thanks to Debra I moved full steam ahead. If you haven't heard of Debra Dixon, she's one of the publishers behind Belle Ridge Books as well as several fantastic titles including re-releases from Random House's Loveswept line.

I left the workshops a bit early to attend a super fun birthday party and then right after the birthday party the whole family went to a bonfire. Talk about getting up at 7 am and not even catching my breath until midnight. I played--and quickly lost at doubles in ping-pong and  The fire-roasted hot dogs and s'mores did make the night end on a high note though. ;)

Since I'm in such a good mood with the release of my cover, I'd love to give away some more goodies! (Cause we know Shawntelle always needs an excuse to get out of the house and go book shopping.

And of course since I love RTC I'll toss a few of those little guys in there too! I might surprise you with some COVETED swag as well. Who knows?

Since my weekend was non-stop did anyone else actually have a quiet weekend? Can I borrow it for my next weekend?

Busy weekend starting with a school trip on Friday, and our nine year old had a report project that required parental support. The project was about the Red Fox, which is from the canine family just like wolves. I've been following your progress with this book since Romance at Random interview, and its great to see the cover.

My weekend wasn't quiet either. Saturday we went to watch my boyfriend's grandaughter play socer, had lunch and then played video games with the kids. On Sunday we went out for breakfast, went food shopping, watched football and took my Mom out for dinner.

Enjoyed the preview of the cover.

Love the cover. I don't think I'll have a quite weekend for at least the next 16 years. With 3 boys all wanting to play and go places it never stops, and don't forget shopping to keep the house running.
