Hot Diggity Doggies!
This is the week I hope to clear out all my backlog. Please wish me good luck with that!
So I'm sharing two short videos from yesterday. The first is Shiner going long for a Cheetos pass. The second is a mockingbird singing while the dogs ate dinner (you may need to turn your sound up to hear as it's not as loud on the video as it was outside). The dogs are spoiled--they get dinner and a show!
Even better, I'm participating in Medeia Sharif's fantastic cover reveal for her upcoming novel, VITAMINS AND DEATH.
VITAMINS AND DEATH by Medeia Sharif
YA Contemporary, Prizm Books
Release Date December 10, 2014
Deidra Battle wants nothing more than to be invisible. After her mother, a public school teacher, engages in an embarrassing teacher-student affair at Lincoln High, they relocate to a different neighborhood and school. Being her mother’s briefcase, Deidra joins her mother at her new workplace, Hodge High.
Since her mother has reverted to her maiden name and changed her appearance, Deidra thinks no one will figure out they’re the Battles from recent news and that they’re safe. Neither of them is. Hodge brings a fresh set of bullies who discover details about the scandal that changed her life.
Feeling trapped at home with an emotionally abusive, pill-addicted mother and at school with hostile classmates who attempt to assault and blackmail her, Deidra yearns for freedom, even if she has to act out of character and hurt others in the process. Freedom comes at a price.
