Today is Day 3 of the Very Superstitious Blog Tour — and there are three very exciting things going on today!

First, be sure to visit Much Loved Books to read a guest post by Pab Sungenis on superstitions and a review of his short story in the anthology, “The Silverfoot Heretic” (and remember to enter via the form at the bottom for a chance to win awesome stuff)!

Next, it’s my turn to answer questions on the Blog Tour! Today I’m by Book Cracker Caroline, where I give my Top Three Favorites for many things…songs, snacks, overcoming writer’s block, etc.!

And…also on Book Cracker Caroline’s site…is the long-awaited COVER REVEAL for my upcoming novel, TO BEAR AN IRON KEY!!! **throws confetti** There’s also the unofficial synopsis as well as the official back-cover copy, a blurb (quoted text) from the book, and a cover quote from the most amazing Richelle Mead!  TO BEAR AN IRON KEY will hit the shelves in May 2014, from Month9Books.

Very Superstitious Blog Tour: Day 1

Monday, October 14th, 2013

It’s October 14, 2013 — and that means it’s the official kickoff to the Very Superstitious Blog Tour!!!

VERY SUPERSTITIOUS: MYTHS, LEGENDS AND TALES OF SUPERSTITION is a charity anthology from Month9Books, with proceeds going to SPCA. My short Riders story, “Thirst,” is one of the tales. You can buy VERY SUPERSTITIOUS via Amazon (print and Kindle) and Kobo, beginning on October 15, 2013.

Today there are two stops on the Very Superstitious Blog Tour:

Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf, with a guest post from Jennifer Knight.

Fantasy Book Addict, with an interview of Mari Mancusi.

Be sure to enter on Melissa’s site for a chance to win an ebook of each author’s work (international) or a physical copy of the anthology (US)!

Coming in October, part 2: VERY SUPERSTITIOUS

Monday, September 9th, 2013

And here’s the second book-related event that will be coming up in October: The release of the charity anthology VERY SUPERSTITIOUS from Month9Books!


This is a charity anthology to benefit SPCA International. The stories are based on urban legends, myths, tribal tales and superstitions from around the world. My story is “Thirst,” which is set in the Riders world a long, long, long (long) time ago. It’s a Famine tale. And Death, of course; it wouldn’t be a Riders tale without Death. 🙂

The full list of contributors is: Shannon Delany, Jackie Morse Kessler (hi there!), Stephanie Kuehnert, Jennifer Knight, Mari Mancusi, Michelle E. Reed, Dianne Salerni and Pab Sungenis.

There will be a blog tour–and who knows? Maybe there will be giveaways. Ooooh, shiny!
