Yep, emerging from my writer cave once again to communicate with the outside world! 😀 I stayed up all last night, literally didn’t sleep. And I discovered two things … (1) I can’t write a big fight/battle scene when I’m really tired, and (2) I’m not in college anymore. That second observation has to do with age and the ability to stay up all night and still function the next day. LOL

I did manage to perk up in time for the Super Bowl. I know it’s a distinctly American thing, and many people in other countries don’t understand the game, but I love football! I didn’t even have a favorite team in this game, and I loved it anyway. Although that power outage right in the middle of the game was one for the record books. That was just weird. The commercials were pretty good, although no real standouts this year. My all-time favorite is still probably the DARTH VADER KID COMMERCIAL

This year, I liked the screaming goat Doritos commercial, and the Bud Light lucky chair Stevie Wonder/Zoe Saldana one. And the Jeep/Soldiers Coming Home ad put tears in my eyes. But I guess the best one had to be the CLYDESDALE Budweiser ad By the way, you can see all of the ads and vote on your favorites HERE.

And that’s it for Superbowl XLVII.

And now for this week’s tech report … shipped me a new Nook to replace my frozen one, and my Kindle continues to limp along. However, my microwave decided to burn up (or something) on Friday. I never realized how dependent I am on that thing until I didn’t have it this weekend. I had to heat my salsa con queso on the stove!! Oh, the humanity! LOL

Back to my writing stuff … I’m taking a survey of my readers. I posted it on Facebook yesterday, but for the rest of you … what are your favorite paranormal romance/urban fantasy book covers? Just leave it in the comments below, and thanks!

Hmmm, I think that’s it. I still need to write that big fight/battle scene tonight, so I better get started.

Have a good week, and I’ll be back here next Sunday!



  1. I love Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld covers. The naked torsos with tattoos are very sexy!

  2. I already mentioned on Fb that I like Keven Hearne’s covers for the Iron Druid Series but I also have to agree with Karen Roma that the Showalter covers are outstanding. They are HOT HOT HOT.

    Poor baby! No sleep, no microwave and e-reader hell. I’d tell you that you need a break, a day off but I’m not that nice. I want you pounding out ADEN every minute until it is done. Sorry, I’ll rub your back when this is accomplished. Yes, I know, super fans can be such capital B’s.

  3. Yes! All of the Iron Druid covers are amazing!

    I would also include Etched In Bone and the upcoming On Midnight Wings (by the fabulous Adrian Phoenix). Non-existent tattoos were removed from Heather and a shadowed image of Dante was added. Makes all the difference. 🙂

  4. Oh the covers I could mention!! Firstly ANYTHING with Paul Marron on the cover. A good example of this is Lover Avenged by JR Ward or Ravenous by VK Forrest. In fact all the Clare Point Vampire books by VK Forrest are hot. I also LOVE Raphael’s cover by the one & only DB Reynolds. What bone structure!! *sigh* Larissa Ione’s trade size Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Nalini Singh Guild-Hunter mass market paperbacks; Elena’s wings are stunning. Donna Grant’s Midnight Warrior covers. Monica Burns Order of Sicari covers; can anyone say ‘abs?’. Caris Roane Guardians of Ascension covers -so romantic. Nalini Singh trade size Psy-Changeling; gorgeous faces up-close and personal. Just a few of my faves off the top of my head. Back to work now he he…

  5. I love Nalini Singh’s covers for books 2, 3 and the anthology in her Guild hunter series,
    Karen Marie Moning’s mass market paperbacks covers for the fever series,
    Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress covers,
    Cassandra Clare’s covers(I don’t like the books but she really is lucky in the cover department),
    Karen Chance’s covers,
    Patricia Briggs’ covers,
    Larisa Ione’s Lords of Deliverance covers,
    Gena Showalter’s Angels of the Dark and Alice in Zombieland covers,
    Kristen Callihan’s covers.

    I think I should stop now 😀

  6. My Very Best has got to be Raphael’s with the Cyn on the cover with her gun….awesome, still love the hair style!

    Hi ya D.B :))
