I'd like to start the week by thanking everyone who commented on my Alternate Perceptions post. A cool $60 donation has been made. And Kevin Hiatt owes me lunch. Way to work the system, bud! :)
Turns out my A to Z Challenge theme made some waves last month. Click out the A to Z Challenge site to see my interview with them!
And now, for your viewing pleasure, I present to you these most- excellent cover reveals! Jay Noel's followup to Dragonfly Warrior is coming soon. Tara Tyler's looks to be a monster of a good read.
Margo Kelly also released her new cover for a novel that "covers" a very important topic for internet-using youth. I'm creeped out!
Congratulations on your covers, everyone! May plenty of of readers and many sales come your way (... where's the pre-order link?).

WHIE and Storymakers ... What a rush! I had more fun than I'm allowed to have at both of those conferences. Sadly I was only able to make it to the Saturday portion of Storymakers, but at least I got to stop and chat with old friends and meet new faces before sneaking into Chad Morris's and Tyler Whitesides's school visit presentation. WHIE was more of a challenge, teaching three classes. My Mental Health in Fiction had the largest turnout. I'm keeping that one!
And as always, I look forward to both conferences next year.

Have you heard the news about Kepler-186f? Apparently we've just discovered an exoplanet that's very close to Earth size AND orbiting its star's habitable zone. Does it have an atmosphere? Does it have water? Only time will tell. Sign me up for the colonizing mission!
Update: More writing. More reading. Woven 2 is officially at 10K, and, unfortunately for time's sake, all other projects are on hold again. There's more to do when the snow melts, meaning less time on the computer and more time taming the jungle surrounding my house. Among other priorities. But I'm still writing. My bases are covered!
Got to wrap this up. Big week ahead and a killer monster movie to see this weekend. More on that later. Thanks for clicking by!
Like the interview? Who's stoked for Jay, Tara, and Margo's covers? Like writing conferences? Will we ever find an Earth-like planet?
I'm David, and Rick's Facebook movie is ever so cheerful ...
