  1. Rebecca has a lot going on her websites. I think she has the energy of a 5-year-old in the body of a...person like me.

    When she finds time to write more on the Seraphym Wars and Stardust Warriors is beyond me. I kind of think she's got another twenty or so books already outlined and ready to go.

    Congrats on your great success, Rebecca.

    I already own most of your books (yeah, yeah, my TBR is about a mile high), so I'll just encourage others to jump in to win their own copies. What the heck, they're on sale at MuseItUp this month. Just go buy them! (mine too if you're feeling generous).

  2. Marva, you're a hoot. But also correct. I do have about 20 outlines and started stories. This wedding is kicking my butt right now. It's hard to even think about writing but I'm editing 2 and revising 2 so I kinda have to. I'm anxious to read your witch trilogy--looks intriguing and I really enjoyed past books of yours.

  3. I like the first book cover best. Not crazy about people on covers, although several of mine have them.
