Did I mention that I am pleased?
There's a parrot on the cover - as well there should be - along with the new (old) name of Christy Fifield. Technically that name is not exactly what my name was; I went by Christi Fifield when I was a child, but I didn't figure anyone would notice the difference. Heck, it's been long enough since I used that name, no one would even notice, except my family!
Anyway, as soon as I have the okay I will be posting the cover - and the nice quote - here for everyone to see. I also have a release date of March, 2012, so mark your calendars.
In the meantime, I do have a new short story available now on Kindle and coming soon to Nook, and through most of the other regular epublishing channels. Here's the description for "Cheer Witches":
Some people think all cheerleaders are witches, which isn't really true. Except at Salem Township Public High School #4 - known to the student body as Witch High.
Regionals are coming, and Cassie wants to win. But not enough to cheat. Magic is strictly forbidden in competition, and by the coach. Still, a little magic seems to be creeping into their routines, and Cassie is worried. She prides herself on using her powers for good, and cheating isn't right.
If she can't find the hidden source of the magic before their next competition, they could be disqualified.
Or worse, in Cassie's mind, they could not be disqualified.
Then even if they win, they lose!
Find it on Amazon at the above link, or in all major ebook forms on Smashwords. Only 99 cents. Coming soon to Nook, Apple, Kobo, and all other major ebook outlets. And while you're there, take a look at the other titles I have available. There are two short stories FREE at Smashwords - Food Fight (also free for Kindle and Nook) and Songs of Lesser Voices (available for free on Nook) - and several others at only 99 cents.
I hope to be back here soon to post more recipes and cooking photos, and to share the new cover. I'm excited to get your reactions to the cover - I'm already happy about it and I hope you'll like it, too!
