A pop to a world of secret magic


My good blogfriend, CD Coffelt's book, Wilder Mage, comes out today! Yay, yay, yay!

Had to help her CELEBRATE! I'm in the middle of reading my ARC of it and her magical prose blissfully immerses me into this world where two crazy, mixed up kids are both fearful of having their magic found out and their worlds shattered.

Wilder Mage
CD Coffelt, Huntress


And here's a little about the author:

CD Coffelt lives outside Maryville, Missouri with a bemused husband and way too many cats. She adores all things fantasy with a special love for urban and epic. With a passion for good writing and Doritos as companions, locating Middle-Earth on a dusty road in rural Missouri wasn’t difficult. All it took was a little Magic, hours of reading, and an overactive imagination.



Other things I'm celebrating this fine Friday:
  • making it through my second week of my teaching assignment. I'm so tired!
  • boys doing well in football!
  • getting some editing done on Simulation. More like backfill at this point. I have to go back and explain everything using the characters' voices, that's all.
Here's my teaser, mock cover



Come celebrate every Friday with Vikki!

What are you reading? Anything fun going on this Labor Day weekend? Keep it safe!

Tara, glad you made it through the first two weeks. Teaching can sure take it out of you.

Wow, that's an interesting mock up. You've got me asking questions with it already.
