Next up: wrapping presents (hate that) and a few other things from my to-do list. Eeek.
But first I want to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
That's exactly how I feel...
BUT because I'm supposed to feel all christmas-y, I'm giving away a signed ARC of THE OTHER LIFE on goodreads!

Maybe you noticed it already but my US cover is up on amazon! It's totally different from my UK cover, isn't it? But I love them both. Isn't the red font amazingly creepy?
Don't forget: Pub date in the US is May 1st, 2012!
If you don't want to wait that long, you have the chance to win a UK ARC on Samantha's blog! The giveaway is open for US/Canada and Europe/UK!

NaNo started yesterday and I'm participating this year. The book I'm working on was inspired by a few places I visited with my husband in the last few weeks.
Here are a few pics:
Watercastle Anholt. It's only about an hour from where we live.
The following photos show Castle Rheinfels. It towers over the rhine across from the famous Loreley.
The autumn weather has been fabulous in Germany so far. That isn't something that happens very often around here!

It's the US version and the title is slightly different from the UK version.
It's THE WEEPERS: THE OTHER LIFE
As you can see on Amazon, there isn't a cover up yet. That's because the US cover isn't the same as the UK cover that I revealed a few weeks ago.

The cover of The Other Life:
And here’s the blurb from goodreads:
Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.
Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ - rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.
While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.
I couldn’t be happier. Usborne did a fabulous job. Isn’t the bleeding butterfly deliciously creepy???

And that red butterfly? Isn't it perfect for business cards and other things...like earrings or, you know, a necklace?

Here are a few pics:
My crit partner Tracy and I! We met at a baseball game. Tracy invited me! She's lovely like that!
