First of all, I would like to send huge thanks to Thom Marrion, who is AWESOME. He’s the one who made that gorgeous picture of the selkie girl reading Tempest Rising. And this time, he’s found Jane in the hands of her perfect man: large, hairy, and big-footed in such a way a girl just has to wonder . . .
It’s Sasquatch! And he’s got his hairy mitts on Jane. I think she loves it, don’t you?
For those of you (like anybody who knows me in real life) who is all, “Ummm . . . angels? Really? Nikki?” have no fear.
We are supposed to be the Archangel Michael and Lucifer, and from the positioning (me getting my ass kicked), I’m assuming I’m Lucifer. Which makes PERFECT SENSE. So all of you who were like, “WTF?” can calm down now.
The wings will soon be stripped and the horns implanted. As they should be.
In OTHER EXCITING NEWS, Mark Henry got rather irate on Twitter about people hijacking his yahoo group to talk about Tempest Rising. In response, the ever-lovely @QQwill said, “Well, then, fine. I’ll make Nicole her OWN page.” So now, all eight of my fans can use yahoo groups to talk about how much they love me, my books, and everything Nicole. Granted, this will consist of probably about 5 posts (four of which will be prompts, from me, begging people to talk about how much they love me, my books, and everything Nicole). This scenario will undoubtedly be very amusing to anyone who enjoys watching me make an ass of myself, which seems to be everyone I know and love. 🙂 Ya’ll are lucky I’m always happy to oblige.
If you want to see me shamelessly begging for attention, you can join my yahoo group here:
That said, I totally can’t work technology, so go ahead and be as snarky as you want. I will probably figure out how actually to enter the group and read your posts in about a month. So you’ve got a good four weeks to say crazy shit before I come in and bust heads (read: cry).
If you’re someone new to my site who’s all, “I saw this hot purple book but want to know whether or not it’s shite?” go check out my updated Tempest Rising page. It’s got all the reviews I could find plus some new author quotes.
I gotta admit, a few people DO think it’s fairly shite, but most people seem to enjoy it. Some of them even like it quite a bit.
And thanks to all of you who do. 🙂
Finally, my fellow Leaguer and soon-to-be-debut-novelist, Kelly Meding, is serializing two of her short stories over the next week and a half to promote the release of THREE DAYS TO DEAD. Fun!
