And a giveaway

So... I thought I should add a giveaway to go along with the prologue on 1/1.  I'll be (randomly) choosing from new Twitter followers ('til noon on 1/6) and current Twitter followers who retweet.

Happy eve of New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year

I hope you'll stop back on New Year's Day to see the deleted prologue to LARK RISING.  Gharain lovers should especially enjoy...

Alternative and Quite Terrible Titles for LARK RISING (aka TAGGED!)

K.E. Ormsbee, author of the lovely, clever THE WATER & THE WILD recently tagged me in the Terrible Titles Challenge.  I happen to love K.E.'s book (coming April '15), with its gorgeous cover and obviously terrific title. BUT I must admit, her terrible titles are quite awesome (check them out on her blog).

The challenge:  To thumb (or scroll) through book (or ms), stopping at eight random spots--what words are landed upon become the titles.  I'm thinking this is how I'll pick all my titles from now on.

Without further ado, these are LARK's alternatives:

1.  A Raven Huge and Glossy

2.  More Was Offered Here

3.  That Strange Whorl

4.  We Should Go

5.  Ignoring the Burn

6.  A Small Ignorance

7.  I Wonder Too

8.  Trimming Haricots

And now I tag the following authors--who just happened to be the most recent four on my Twitter messages: Amber Lough, Melody Maysonet, Kerry O'Malley Cerra, and Kim Ligget.  TAG!  YOU'RE IT!
