So this is what came in the mail last week:

Yes! Even though it is only July 2013, Soho Press is already thinking ahead toward Spring 2014! Which makes my heart sing because that is when THE A WORD comes out. Yes! The sequel to THE SWEET DEAD LIFE. In which Jenna gets a love life. And a new angel arrives on the scene. And the larger mystery gets more mysterious.

So you know what? There is an excerpt from that sequel in this sampler! And samples of five other amazing books, too!

And I am giving away ONE. Yes, just 1. One special person who gets to read ahead in Jenna and Casey's story. Book 2 of THE SWEET DEAD LIFE series, a Texas makeover of the angel story.

I live on the other side of the country, but I have been told by a friend that not everyone wears cowboy boots. That was very shocking to me! :P

The first and only time I went to Texas was in San Antonio for my fiance's basic training graduation, I nearly caused my future mother in law to crash her rental car because I screamed about how cheap the gas was. I also recall that the Alamo was right in the middle of downtown San Antonio. There were all these tall modern buildings and then this very old historical site right in the middle of it.
