Just a little this and that for the moment – I’ll probably come up with something a little more thought inducing later.

1) I’m entering the Golden Heart contest this year. Debated on it for a bit, and then figured why not? I have a MS ready to go, might as well toss my hat in the ring for the Cthulhu of unpubbed romance contests. I don’t expect to final since it’s not real “romancy” to start with, but I suppose you never know unless you try. (And now I’ve got an excuse to crank through revising my synopsis).

2) I won a pitch to Becca Stumpf from the raffle over at FF&P yesterday. I get 10 minutes in a chat room to pitch my book, and I need 3 sentences to start with. Something high level, I suppose. I usually quip about using a few lines from the story directly, but I should probably come up with more of an elevator pitch just to be on the safe side.

I had a naked incubus in my bedroom. With a frying pan of half-cooked bacon and a hard-on. And a unicorn bite on his ass. Christ, but this was turning out to be a weird morning.

Charming, but probably won’t work.  Ah well.

3) I got my winner’s plaque from the CRW Heart of the Rockies Contest yesterday. Kinda cool, actually.

4) My ShadowScapes Tarot book came in.  It is *SOOOOO* pretty.  I paid a little extra for a custom sketch on the inside of the jacket. (Artist choice, of course).

I’m totally grooving on the magician card for a number of reasons.

I always love looking at the reasons behind why a tarot artist draws what he/she does. Although the cards themselves will reveal their message, getting into the story behind the symbolism can really open up a lot of doorways. I can’t wait until the cards get released in February. 🙂

    If those are an example of the cards, then they're gorgeous!

    I'm trying to decide if I should skip pitching my first ms and pitch my second instead (since the first one seems to be attracting nothing but rejections lately). If you want to work out your pitch, I'm available 🙂 I'm not all that fabu at it, but I'd be glad to help.

    Killer – think we're doing practice pitches tonight at 9 PM in the water cooler, if you're interested.

    And yes, those are the cards (the book covers the major arcana), and they are beautiful.
