Splaturday Linkage

Well, I intended to have a longer post for you this weekend, but my end-of-term projects are kind of eating my time. So, here’s some fun/interesting links that I’ve run across recently. And a reminder that Time for Christmas comes out next Wednesday, December 4th from Torquere Press. I’ll have more info next week! Some Links: Awesome Minimalist Harry Potter Book Covers. Artist Page / All In One Post The Crossing, by Kyle Cabral. Another Tumblr find, I think his art is gorgeous. If I had a million dollars, I would pay him to do the artwork for my website.

I can’t believe we’re halfway through November already. Christmas is coming soon, and with it all the craziness of the season.  I was at the grocery store yesterday and people were already stocking up on food for the holiday. On December 4th, my new short story “Time For Christmas” will be released via Torquere Press. It’s a holiday themed contemporary romance about two men who don’t honor the season in the traditional way, but still find time to celebrate. I’ll talk a little more about the story, and where it came from, closer to the release date. At the moment, I’m headed out of town for yoga retreat. Going to spend the weekend relaxing and meditating, which will hopefully set me up for the rush to the end of the...
