 (Obviously there'll be more text on the spine and back cover, but we wanted to show you the gorgeous art as clearly as possible. The art was done by the amazing Julie Dillon!)

 Needless to say we're ecstatic about how LH is coming together. (EDIT: The final wordcount is about 154,000 words.) Edits are done and we'll be getting proofs and arranging for Advance Reader Copies shortly! We're on target for an early-mid May release as planned.

Meanwhile, if anyone plans to be at Arisia this weekend, come by our dealer table and say hi! We might just have copies of CG Magazine's 2nd anthology on hand...

      Wow, the cover is stunning! I bet you guys are psyched. I can't wait to read it. :)

      Love Julie Dillon, so happy about this cover.

      Question: I pledged to receive "A year's ebook subscription to Crossed Genres Magazine, AND a DRM-free ebook of LONG HIDDEN, in 3 formats: ePub, Mobi and PDF." I know that LONG HIDDEN is coming out this year, but did I miss the ebook subscription?

      VERY nice cover. :)
