PAR-TAY!

I just wanted to take a minute to let out a few reminders and announcements.

First of all, I wanted you to remember that on January 12th we are having a marathon day-long chat in the chatroom of my website! There we will talk all about Elijah, the series, where it's going...etc...and I will be online and live the ENTIRE day. (Barring any freak technical difficulties like last time!) But not only will I be there, but I have been inviting my best author friends to stop by and give gifties away! Nalini Singh, Yasmine Galenorn, Deirdre Knight, Stella Price, Bianca D'Arc and many more. Anyone I haven't asked yet who is reading this and is interested, simply email me :) I am going to start assigning times this week. Those who can't give a full hour of their time are welcome at any time to do a drive by appearance :) So, basically, anyone can show up at any time and it might do you some good to have a 'sick' day that day! hehehe. Actually, I purposely made it for a weekend day so as many people as possible could attend. Just make sure you reserve the computer!

And now for an extra very special treat. Starting Monday I am putting up a gorgeous gift on Ebay! You all know my very good friend Serena from Serene Dreaming who has made gorgeous, award-winning jewelry in the past? Well several months ago I commissioned her to do two extraordinary and utterly unique pieces. She has finally finished! Are you ready for this?

She made the Lycanthrope Queen and Princess collars! That's right! Straight out of my vision of the magic collars Siena and Syreena wear in my Nightwalkers series, using real moonstones to boot, she created pieces just for one lucky bidder to own. Well, two. The first to go up next week is Siena's collar:



































this is the thicker piece she created with painstaking exacting care. It will be in celebration of ELIJAH's release. Isn't it utterly gorgeous? Truly perfection!

The princess collar:















will be auctioned off in tandem with DAMIEN's release next June. The principle is simple. Highest bidder wins. And there will NEVER be another like it, ever! I will post the EBAY link for the first collar very soon. Certainly by Monday. I will say this much, she did a lovely job...and as always, all profits from this event will be going to charity. I am considering splitting it between ACN and the ASPCA this time, my two favorite charities. The minimum bid will cover cost of materials and the hard labor Serena put into the project. Anything over that amount goes to charity.


SO, what do you think? Is it how you pictured them?

Thanks Anna...I am truly nervous about this endeavor. I'm always nervous about how my jewelry is received, but never more so than now. To take someone else's ideas and turn them into a tangible item? OMG, NERVE-WRACKING!!!

Awesome, awesome job, Serena! They're stunning! I will definitely bid on them! If only they could come with the book's spells so that ONLY my true soulmate could remove them. That would make my hunt for a good man a HELL of a lot easier! LOL! Thanks, Jacki & Selena, for being so wonderfully creative! I look forward to the day-long chat, on the 12th, Jacki! HUGS ~ Ness
