Delays, Delays, Delays

The latest word from my publisher is that Cassie Scot is probably not going to hit the shelves until May 15. The reason is, simply, that we’re still waiting on cover art. We have to send galley copies of the book to certain pre-publication reviewers three months before publication in order to be considered for review, and we would really like it if Cassie Scot got a couple of big name reviews. The lovely thumbs-up from best-selling fantasy author Kim Falconer a few months ago may help, too. Here’s what she had to say:

“When sorcerers call the shots, what’s a girl without powers to do? Get ready for a ripper of a murder mystery full of romance and intrigue, where magic potions bubble, passions spark and vampires are definitely not your friend. Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective grabs you by the heart and won’t let go until the very last page. Well written, immersive and unputdownable. This is urban fantasy at its best. More please!”

If my loyal readers are getting impatient to see this book, it is nothing to how I feel! I am, quite simply, chomping at the bit. I wrote my first draft of this book in 2009 and wrote my final draft in early 2011, a full two years ago. Cassie is, in my humble opinion, the best heroine I’ve written and I absolutely love her. I am SO eager to share her with the world, because I really believe others will love her as much as I do.

But I, like you, will have to be patient for a few months longer. Cover art was supposed to be in last week, so here’s hoping for next week!

In the meantime, I’m going to post a brand-new excerpt (in a separate post) to help whet your appetites.
