The start of a great day

So I've had a week from hell. The day job is killing me, the hours I'm devoting to everything but my writing are really weighing me down, and I fell back asleep this morning and so started late. But the good news is that after I staggered out, poured some coffee--fed the dogs, because lord knows my yellow lab would starve to death if she ate an hour later than she's used to--and then logged in, there was something good waiting for me in my inbox. A book quote from USA Today bestselling author, RITA award winner Jennifer Ashley. Not just a generic quote, either, but praise that had me sniffling in my coffee. Here's what she says:

"Haunting Beauty is an intriguing, highly absorbing book that sucked me in and didn't let me go until its amazing conclusion. I was completely swept away by the mystery surrounding Sean and Danni, the magical ambience, the vivid setting, and the chilling and original plot. A highly recommended must-read!"

Yay for me. I'm so happy I think I'll actually try to write today. Woo woo. (And mucho thanks, Jennifer Ashley!)

Hi Erin! Its Cathie :) I wanted to ask before I forget, is this the final cover for the book, because it is just so stunning, so beautiful! (I wasn't sure because some use artwork until they have a cover). I got goosebumps the first time I saw it and read about it!

Gosh, a beautiful quote from Jennifer (I've had the joy of reading many of her books, under her other names too). I'm getting more excited about this book too! I'm looking forward to reading it and posting on my blog about it (where i post about my reads and do some reader reviews) because I love to chat about what I read (so forgive my babbling :)

My cat won't allow her cat food bowl to get low, or she'll keep waking us til we get up. I hope you have a better week and that you get some time during this holiday weekend to relax when you can!

Cathie, thinks so much for stopping by to say hi! Yes this is the final cover and I think it's gorgeous too. I love the colors and the imagery.

I agree, Jennifer Ashley is a wonderful person and it was so nice of her to give me such a terrific quote.

And don't EVER apologize to me about babbling over books. You are talking to a kindred spirit here! Love to talk about them. Now if I could just find a minute to WRITE one, lol!
