Guys, you guys!

Today’s the day! Head on over to Shelvers Anonymous to see the ABSOLUTELY FANTABULOUS cover Carolrhoda Lab gave A Wounded Name!

And then, if you’re feeling very brave, head over to the Lab to see my editor reading aloud from Hamlet (it’s funnier than I think he intended it to be), and find out how YOU can find a whole BOX FULL OF DEBUT ARCs from Carolrhoda Lab!

There’s also a second cover reveal happening at the lab, and oh wow, I think I want to marry the entire Lab design team.

So check them out!

Until next time~

It’s Coming…It’s Coming!

February 14, 2013 at 8:37 pm (A Wounded Name) (, )

And no, not the Zombie Apocalypse. I’m reserving judgment on that one.

But there IS something coming, something AWESOME and WONDERFUL!

Can you guess?

Can you guess? Can you guess? Can you guess?

Okay, I’ll tell you.

It’s a cover! A BOOK cover!

And it’s MY cover, to be precise.

Or, well, you know, the cover for A Wounded Name.


And I LOVE it.

And now, after spending weeks staring at this gorgeous image and drooling over it, and wanting desperately to share it with all of you, I finally can!

So I’m not going to.


My friend Shelver is helping me out with this, so FRIDAY FEBRUARY 15th, head on over to Shelvers Anonymous to get your first sight of A Wounded Name!

Until next time~

Hello, My Name Is…

October 25, 2012 at 5:49 pm (A Wounded Name, Writing) (, , , , , )

Hey, guess what guess what GUESS WHAT!

Elsinore Drowning has a new name!

We’ve been tossing around replacement titles for a couple of months and, no joke, I have a sheet of computer paper with about either possibilities on there, but we finally found one and confession time, as much as I love the original title, I kind of love this one like cake.

Red velvet cake.

With cream cheese frosting.

And red sugar crystal sprinkles.

That kind of cake, so you know it’s true love.

Titles are strange, strange creatures and there’s a TON that goes into them- a lot more than I had ever thought about before. Usually a title is one of the first things I know about a project, the piece that helps define everything else, but looking at it from a writing stance is very different than looking at it from a publishing/marketing view, so sometimes titles have to change.

And the new title is…

*drumroll please*

A Wounded Name

So, what do you think?!

If you’re wondering where it came from, we actually went to the source material. The book formerly known as Elsinore Drowning is a modern retelling of Hamlet, and in Act V, our eponymous character says “O God, Horatio, what a wounded name, things standing thus unknown, shall I leave behind me!” It’s appropriate in so many eerie ways and I’m super glad it’s official now so I can share.

Want to know a little more about the book? Check it out on Goodreads, and be sure to add it if you’re interested!

Until next time~
