Countdown to RWA 2011

I’ve been so busy, I haven’t even had time to wax sentimental this time around. Oh time, he waits for no one.

I’m coming off of a workshop and impromptu book signing this week and running headlong into last minute preparations for RWA. This year will be my first signing at the annual RWA literacy autographing and I’m definitely excited about it. There are 500 authors signing so I’m sure it will be fabulous. Hopefully a few people will come by to see me and say hello.

I’ve also designed a new series of RTCs for THE DRAGON AND THE PEARL for RWA and Dragon*Con:


I am SO in love with the new cover as well as the cards. *googly eyes* The images on the back sides are used with permission from in return for the free advertising so if you’re dying to get your own suit of ancient Chinese armor or a beautiful flowing hanfu, check them out. I’ve ordered two outfits from them and they’re absolutely gorgeous.

I’ll be giving details on how to get these cards in my newsletter coming out this Wednesday in case you’re not going to either conference. If you are going to RWA, keep an eye out in the goody room or you can also look for me Tuesday night at the signing.

    The cards are beautiful and I love the fact that they are doing double duty for chineseclothingonline; though I have to admit that the first thing I thought when I saw these was “Holy crap! Is that Peter Ho?!”

    That cover is breath-taking. Have you been sacrificing small children to appease the Cover Gods?

    Also, that is a really clever and cool way to get your character art. These are gorgeous!

    Christine – It was wonderful meeting you!

    E.D. – Hello there! No sacrifices, but I did buy the art department a nice box of chocolates last time around and also spend a lot of time trying to spread good cheer and positive energy. You never know how karma will come back to you, but it seems to have resulted in some good fortune. 🙂
