And Fade to the Now...

As you may have learned, I've signed on with a new publisher, Creativia. And this is the new book cover for the first book of my Sabrina Strong series (previously, "Vampire Ascending"), 

Beautiful, isn't it? And although I wanted something less seductive, my publisher felt this was A#1. So, I put it up on facebook, to see how other people felt about it. I got a resounding "Wow!". I couldn't argue with those who are my friends, can I?

In my last post here, I delved into my writing past. My trails and missteps, you might say. I've been with Creativia for about two months. The first three books have new covers. I'm waiting on the fourth book's cover to be revealed to me, so you'll know what it will look like as soon as I will.

Meanwhile my other titles are being "brought over into the fold", you might say. They'll still have the same covers and so forth. Like my ever popular

As I've said before, I've never wanted to become "Indie". It just seemed to me like too much work doing all the extra little things. My dream was to be a well-read author. I don't know if that will ever be realized. We'll see.

In the meantime, I'm working on the rest of the books--books five through eight, of the Sabrina Strong series. After #8, I want to take a break and work on other fiction that is either begun, or nearly done. 

Here are links to the other three books in Sabrina Strong series:
Oh, and if you do buy from Amazon, I do hope that after you've read it, you'll go back and leave a review, and these links will help with that [smiley face]. Thanks!

And for those of you who like non-fiction... and love cats, this one might be enjoyable:

Have you checked it out? I've got a contest for a signed copy of Ascension going on if you live in the US. Please go to Lorelei's Muse to see what you need to do to get in on it!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Congratulations, and wow those new covers are amazing!!!

  2. I never wanted my characters' faces on the covers, because I knew the covers would never match my own mental images of them. Berkley gave me beautiful covers, but with one exception, they didn't say anything about the stories or characters. That was disappointing.

  3. ~William, yes they are.

    ~Norma, I know what you mean. I've heard this from other authors who can't choose their own covers. I was lucky this was as close as I could get the woman to look like Sabrina. The artist had to darken the hair, but she didn't do the eyes. Oh, well!

  4. Hi, Lorelei! Sounds like you've got a great plan. I need to get my act together.


Hey, did I get you thinking? Want to add a comment? Be my guest and be nice about it. Since I've seen too many "anonymous" users I've taken this option off. Sorry, but you are only interested in selling me something. But my regulars are always welcome!
