Oddly, I find myself without much to blog about today. After all the stuff that's gone on the last few weeks, the packing, the moving, the cover reveal, etc, I'm in sort of a weird decompress state where I don't quite know what to do with myself. It's a little like that after-Christmas feeling, where everything kind of pauses and resets itself.
The only thing that's keeping me from spending all my time reading, napping or wandering through endless Cracked.com articles is the fact that I have to turn in a decent draft of my next book by the end of the summer, and I have another 50-60k words before the story is even done.

So here's a round-up of some awesome cover-y things from this past week.
1. Shannon Messenger revealed the cover for her YA debut, Let the Sky Fall and it is DELICIOUS.
2. Elsie Chapman, a fellow 2013 debut author revealed the cover of her book Dueled around the same time I unveiled the cover for City of a Thousand Dolls, and hers is fantastic. The summary sounds intriguing and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
3. I got the first couple of entries for my cover reveal contest, and guys, they are AMAZING. As soon as I get a few more (hint, hint) I'll post them up on the Facebook page so you all can see the awesome.
Now I have to put in another few hundred words on this project and go to sleep. Thank you all so much for your support and your wonderful comments and for being just generally a badass group of awesome people. Here's some pictures of a baby sea lion to express my gratitude.
