Why I feel loved today

Two reasons.

1. CREEP fan art. Want to see what my protagonist, Dr. Sheila Tao, looks like through the eyes of the amazingly artistic Carrie Butler? CLICK CLICK CLICK! It's too good not to see! Thank you times a million, Carrie!

2. A made-just-for-me cowl neck scarf by the insanely creative Alma Katsu, author of THE TAKER (and a fellow Gallery Books girl!). I squealed when it came in the mail today.


I've been feeling extremely blue this past week, but who wouldn't smile with friends like these?

Much love, guys.

  5. I love the art work. It's good to "see" Sheila Tao--and, hey, she doesn't look JUST LIKE YOU! :)

    What a great scarf! Someone's been a good girl lately to receive so many wonderful gifts, eh? But you deserve it, so ENJOY!

      I don't know if I've been a good girl, but perhaps I've done one or two things right...

  15. Awesome art and freakin' great scarf! We love you! Don't feel blue. Feel purple.

    But I've been a little grouchy over here too so trying to be nicer. Is it the weather? Or maybe the tides???lol

  26. I'm assuming she either knows you envision Lucy Lui in the movie version of Creep, or you two are on the same exact wavelength, because that pic definitely looks like Lucy! And your scarf is fantastic, and you look beautiful and very fashionable (I love that jacket, too). So, I hope you cheer up soon!
