The Countdown Begins...C...B...A...

I got a really nice surprise last week when I found out that one of my very favorite writers has published her first novel---and it promises to be like nothing else you've ever read.

Katella's stories are filled with biting sarcasm that makes me laugh out loud every time. But her characters aren't just hilarious---they've got true depth, and Katella has a great way of revealing them layer by layer throughout the story.  And oh yeah, they're werewolves! 

Here's the blurb: 

(Available on Amazon Kindle)

This is a novel based on the notion that it doesn’t matter what you look like, because beauty lies within the soul. Age, race, and sex are all meaningless because when it comes to being human we are all the same. Each chapter is packed with humorous themes of government control, individuality, and battles between the sexes. It tackles cultural differences and discrimination in a language that young minds can understand. It will speak to anyone who has never had anywhere to belong.


In the meantime, I'm getting set up for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which begins April Fools Day...hey wait a minute, I wonder if there's any significance to that...

Well, too late now!  But not too late for you to sign up if you haven't---just click on the tasty apple in my sidebar.  Last time I checked there were well over 600 bloggers singed up.  That's more than double Arlee's initial goal.  It's going to be nuts!  Which is precisely why I'm in. ;)


And speaking of nuts, here are some wild and crazy authors for you to hop around and meet during the Meet an Author Monday blog hop hosted by Cali Cheer Mom.

Authors---hop on!

I love your blog. Have I said that before? The design is awesome. Popping over from the Monday Blog Hop, would love it if you stopped by mine today as I'm interviewing new indie author S.L.Pierce.

Happy Monday!

And now A to Z is past 700 and on the way to 800. I was surprised by a Google Alert yesterday announcing another one of your articles. I linked to it on my post for today.

Hi, Nicki,

Thanks for the words of encouragement. The American Werewolf in Idaho sounds like a hoot. I must at it to the dozen other books I need to read. LOL. There just isn't enough time.
