Update on THE STRANGELING availability and the cover art contest

Because of distribution problems it took a while for THE STRANGELING to reach sales points, both online internationally and in stores in the US. The good news is it's all sorted now. I’m starting to get happy reader email (always a wonderful experience!) and entries for the cover art contest I’m running, which also indicates that the books are getting out now.

I had planned to close this contest at the end of April but with the delay in books getting out (and the fact you have to have read the book to enter this one,) I’m going to keep it open until the end of May. Here are the details again:

Win a signed print of the gorgeous cover art from THE STRANGELING, which was done by fantasy artist,Timothy Lantz. This is not a cover flat, it's a print of the actual artwork itself. I’ve got one framed on my office wall and it really is a pleasure to look at. To enter, send me an email to the following address: saskiawalker @ gmail. com (no gaps) with the answer to this question:

The heroine of The Strangeling is called Maerose. What is the name of Maerose’s sister?

Please put the following in the subject line to help me stay organised ;) "Strangeling cover art contest entry"

I’ve got three 8 by 10 inch prints up for grabs. I’ll post the results here and on my newsletter. Anyone can enter, reviewers included.


Speaking of cover art, I've had a preview of potential cover art for the next couple of SECRETS anthologies. Volume 19 includes my novella, WHAT YOU WISH FOR, coming in July. One of the covers was very yummy indeed, with a guy on it who looks like the guy in my story (always a bonus! ;) Can't share yet because it's subject to change, but will do as soon as it's finalised.
