Favorite Quote Friday #84

Happy Friday!  How was your week?  I finished going over Darkness Rises proofs and sent them off.  Yay!  The only thing I don't like about going over proofs is having to make corrections with a colored pencil.  I don't know why, but colored pencils always seem to transform my handwriting into the scrawl of an elementary school student. *sigh*

Proofs are the last stage of editing, so next come ARCs, then the book's release.  I can't wait!  I know October 1st seems a long way off, but I'm going to have to start spending time on promotion very soon, so this summer will be very busy.  :-)

Winners from my Predatory Blog Tour are steadily being chosen.  I sent off a half dozen packages this week, each one containing a signed Immortal Guardians book and swag.  :-)

Today is the last day you can bid 
on the awesome goodies up for grabs in Brenda Novak's Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research!  I'm offering 4 signed books, 5 cover flats, 4 postcards (including a Darkness Rises postcard that isn't pictured), 3 bookmarks, and 3 trading cards.  You can find my listing HERE.

There are all kinds of great things available, ranging from books and goody bags to vacation getaways to manuscript evaluations for aspiring writers.  There's also a grand prize.  :-)  

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Since I just finished going over the proofs, I thought I'd give you another taste of Darkness Rises.  In today's selection, Étienne, the telepathic immortal hero, is speaking to Krysta, the heroine:

“There is no reason to feel embarrassed, Krysta.”

“Easy for you to say!  You weren’t caught mentally checking out my package!”

Dating a telepath, Krysta soon learns, has its challenges.  ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
