Moon Thrall and Updates

Moon Thrall has been accepted by Ellora's Cave!!!! YAY!! Originally a Nocturne Bites story, I'd gone too far out of their guidelines (I knew this, so wasn't surprised) - and realized it was easier to add roughly another 5K to the story to make it a novella sized Ellora's Cave story, than do rewrites which would have changed the whole concept between the hero and heroine =)
I sent the cover request form off for it this morning - and I can't wait to see what the art department come up with!!! Think seeing the cover for the first time is my favourite part of the book coming out.
Hope to start on any revisions soon =)

In the meantime, I finished off what I hope will be a Bites shape shifter story, something I managed in 2 weeks - so I know I *can* write fast when I want to. (not from a bad typing speed, I just like to go back and check each paragraph as I go, a habit sooo hard to get out of!!)

In the next few days I'll post up some books I've read lately too, which I've really enjoyed reading =)

thanks Kylie - not a spectacular word count, at around 12K (will add to that in revisions), but still a good count for me =)
