CONTEST WINNER! (Duncan’s last name is …)

The entries have been tossed into the hat, the name has been drawn and the winner is

……………….Vicki Hurley!……………….

Vicki, you have until midnight PST on February 28th to respond to my e-mail and provide the requested info, so I can send out your prize. If you didn’t get my e-mail, check your SPAM folder. If that still doesn’t work, let me know.

Many of you got Duncan’s last name right. It’s MILFORD, by the way. Duncan reveals it for the first time when he goes to the police lockup with Cyn to interview Todd (page 186 of the print version.)

I want to thank everyone who entered. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy to know how many of you loved the books enough to remember (or to search for) Duncan’s last name. So, my sincere thanks to all of you.

In more exciting news … There’s more? Yes, there is … I received the final cover for SOPHIA! Yay! Just one tiny tweak and it’s done, so I should have it this week. It’s so purdy!! Sophia is beautiful and Colin is handsome and tough looking. Perfect.

In other news, I had a near death experience last night. Well, okay, near death may be exaggerating a little bit, but when my car was sliding across four lanes of California freeway, with no traction and rain pouring all around, it surely did feel near deathish. I saw all those headlights bearing down on me and thought for sure I was dead. But all props to California drivers. They make fun of us, but not a single car hit me or anyone else despite the sudden appearance of a spinning car in front of them — although one guy in the carpool lane (aka HOV or commuter lane) came close at the very end. But close doesn’t count. No one hit me. And there were no pile-ups in my wake, either.

I want to assure you, however, that the manuscript for SOPHIA is all done, so even if I’d bitten the big one, you’d get the latest installment of Cyn, Raphael and the gang. Of course, there’d be no DUNCAN, which would be a shame. Not to mention the whole me being dead and all. This is me whistling in the dark, new lease on life and all that. I shall devote myself to writing diligently henceforth. 🙂

Let’s see … new contest winner, SOPHIA cover’s almost here, I’m definitely still here … That’s about it for this week, I guess.

Oh, right, one last thing, Adrian Phoenix’s Etched in Bone, the latest in her Maker’s Song series comes out this week (February 22.) This is a great series, Urban Fantasy at its very best. It’s an intricate and compelling story and I recommend it highly.

See you next week. I expect to have the cover for SOPHIA for you, and, by the way, it’s going to be dry and sunny in L. A. all week long!! Yay!

  1. Glad you’re okay! Can’t wait to see the Sophia’s cover next week.
    And I am all over the Maker’s Song series, and I have you to thank. So, thank you for putting Adrian’s name on your website. I pre-ordered Etched in Bone the minute the link went up. I’ll be doing the same for Sophia!

  2. Wow! That was a close call, D.B.! I’m so happy to hear that you are O.K.!

    I have no doubt that the cover for Sophia is gorgeous! Can’t wait to see it!

    Looking forward to the release of Etched in Bone. The Maker’s Song series is awesome indeed!

    Take care and have a great day! 🙂

  3. Nothing like a close call to make you count your blessings! Glad you’re ok.

    I’ve started the Immortals After Dark series but not the Maker’s Song series. I guess it will have to be next.

  4. Whew! Something like that does put your priorities in perspective. I’m giving a little prayer for your continued safety and always for your good fortune.

    Here I am stuck in Florida (not really so tough since it’s in the 80’s here and back home it’s in the teens and snowy) but I have been without my DB books and couldn’t enter the contest. However, I will suck it up and offer many congrats to Vicki.

    I will anxiously await the cover for Sophia. And I think I have fallen in love with Duncan, I have not told my husband. Please don’t mention it to him, he’s sensitive about my crushes.

  5. So glad you are ok. It’s scary when your car takes on a life of it’s own. Can’t wait to see the Sophia cover and looking forward to ANYTHING you throw at us from DUNCAN. I so look forward to your Monday morning posts. It’s the first thing I do. I don’t even get my coffee first. 🙂 Have a great week. Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly 🙂 So glad she was with you on this trip. Congrats to Vicki!
    PS- Did I mention ANYTHING you want to send our way on Duncan????

  6. Congrats to Vicki:) Jealous but still congrats. Happy to hear DBR that you are OK.You are so lucky that you came out unscathed. Did a similar thing on our 1st snow fall here in Bend,Oregon.Did a 360 in the snow and thank god no one was on the road either way. So looking forward to next week on seeing the cover of Sophia! Thank you….
