I’ll have details about the Goodreads giveaway soon, so stay tuned :o)

Stay cool ghouls and boys!

Hello October!

Can you believe it’s October already? I swear that just yesterday it was March. I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone, but then again, I think I say that every year at about this time. To really put things in perspective, I just checked and there are only another 12 weeks until Christmas. Ugh. Excuse me while I have a minor panic attack over that fact.

Anyway… seeing as it is October and one of my favorite times of year, I thought I’d share a few pictures with you all to show you what I was up to over the weekend to really get into the Halloween spirit :o)

As much as I love Halloween, I’m ashamed to say that unlike Christmas, my Halloween decorations are rather meager. In fact, they consist of a black glittery sign that says “Creepy” and a wooden block that says “Eek.” Pretty lame, right? So I decided that this year it was time I gussied things up a little and got with the Halloween spirit. Because I am me, and I can’t ever do anything the easy way, I figured I would bust out the sewing machine and craft a little holiday cheer.

Something is taking shape here, but what could it be?

Oh! It’s a cushion cover :o)

Close up.

I fell in love with this fabric as soon as I saw it and knew it would make the perfect backing for one of my Halloween cushions. At some point I’m going to hunt down some more so I can make something entirely out of this print <3

Work started on a second cushion cover, and would have been completed if I hadn’t failed in my calculations of how much of the white and orange polka dot fabric I had on hand. D’oh! So, that little project is currently on hold until more fabric arrives. Grr.

I also decided to do a little selfless sewing last week and made a coffee cozy for a dear friend of mine. Leslie is a real gem – I’ve worked with her for the past 5 years on our company’s annual convention, she has been a beta reader for both of the Riley Cray novels, and she was recently a bridesmaid in my wedding. I can’t say enough how much this woman rocks, and how much I treasure her friendship.

A suitably funky button for a wonderfully funky lady. Besides, I couldn’t resist the wee deer! So darling!

The coffee cozy complete with a new mug and a little something to help fill it with caffeinated goodness ;o)

And of course, as always, I had my trusty assistants close at hand to keep an eye on things…

Miss Samantha watched both me and the outside world from her perch beside the door.

Severus lorded over all from atop my sewing box, which seems to be one of his favorite places to sit whenever I’m at the sewing machine.

As usual, when Silas wasn’t personally inspecting everything by laying his fuzzy ass on it he was wedging himself into one of my baskets for a nap.

Even the elusive Viktor briefly came out of hiding to supervise for a while. Only Lucius, my other grey boy seemed uninterested in what I was doing and spent all day sleeping on the couch. Lazy bugger.

Fantasy girl taking magic light in her hands. Mysterious Night s

My novel, Changeling, included in the boxed set, is a (full-length) New Adult paranormal romance . . .

Somebody is murdering the Pixies. They’ve been dropping like flies in this small college town.

Skye’s a teen witch who sucks at spells and is skeptical about the idea of winged Tinker Bells. But strange things have been going on at the metaphysical shop, The Green Fairy, where she works nights: black specks of movement out of the corner of her eye, mysterious buzzing noises, unidentified dragonfly carcasses in the basement, and a hidden cache of absinthe (aka fairy crack).

Kheelan is a human changeling. Raised with the fairies, he’s viewed as an inferior species whose only use is to serve his kidnappers. He’s been totally screwed by the Fae and his only goal in life is freedom. When he meets Skye, he sees an opportunity to escape. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by feelings for this quirky witch.

Skye stumbles upon the remains of dead fairies and is approached by Kheelan who has been sent to investigate the pixie murders. Funny thing is–he looks exactly like a part-time employee of the store who has autism. Skye falls for Kheelan, only to discover he’s using her to win his freedom. Hard to believe she’s really half-fairy and has secret powers when she can never get a spell to work right. But one night, after years of painful backaches from what she thought was scoliosis, Skye discovers a pair of sprouted wings.

As Samhain, the witch’s Halloween, draws near, she must make a bold move to claim her heritage and power, restore order in the fairy realm, and try to win Kheelan’s freedom and love. Absinthe, autism and augury meld into a paranormal cauldron where everything is not what it seems and the fairies are sly tricksters who can trap you in their realm.
