Back...Chatting...Dark Legacy goes to production in a week...

Thanks for all your patience, my blog friends. Dark Legacy is revised, I took a trip to Boston to talk with the NEC romance writers, and now I'm working on line edits so DL can go to production next week.

The website/blog redesign is almost done, I have beautiful pics of jewelry I'm going to be using as giveaways for Dark Legacy promotion (and if you really like them and don't win one, you just might be able to buy your own soon from my kick-ass jewelry designer friend Marci). See the pics below...

Oh, and I'm chatting all weekend over on Dangerous Women Writing. Check us out...it's going to be a blast.


To get us going again, I'm going to give away one of the beautiful leather necklaces with the Dark Legacy book cover charm (sterling silver fastenings and embellished with pearls and whatever else Marci dreamed up) to someone who comments out here over the weekend!

Stay tuned for more "down to earth" blogs starting next week, and a beautiful new site/blog to look at soon. It's going to be a great count-down to September, my friends ;o)

Here are some pictures to drool over. The theme is my new logo and the dream images from DL's cover. Especially our weekend prize, the Dark Legacy cover pendant and leather necklace ;o)

    The book sounds amazing. I can't wait to read it. The jewelry is beautiful. Does your designer have any ideas for a budding jewelry designer?...LOL.

    Those necklaces would look lovely on MY neck!!! Right next to a pair of fang marks, but alas, I left the window open once again. Can't wait to read the twin story.

    Terry, I'll be talking Marci up over the next few weeks (I was waiting for her beutiful pictures to be ready), so keep coming back. I'll have her guest blog on day (probably week after next, since next week is spring break here).

    In the mean time, check out her amazing website. Each piece is a masterpiece!

    the necklaces are absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to read the book.

    Robyn, the butterflies are the new look at my logo that the designer working on my site came up with. I can't wait for everyone to see what she's done with them ;o)

    The colorful pendants are actually carved from nuts from the Brazilian rain forest. Marci found a Central American designer who dies and carves slices of these nuts, and we chose colors from Dark Legacy's cover. The tree and bird in the image reflect dream images from the book, as well as the cover. Very cool!!! I'll let Marci talk more about them in a week or so, once we're ready to launch the entire look ;o)

    Those necklaces are lovely! And the series sounds terrific---I can't wait to read it!

     
  • At 2:24 PM, Blogger Judy F said…

    Very Pretty. I can't wait to try your new books. I loved your Super Romance ones for ages.

     
  • At 4:16 PM, Blogger Anna Destefano said…

    Thanks, Judy. Don't give up on the supers just yet. I'm working on one more Atlanta Heroes (and who knows, there might just be more)--this one about a fire fighter and a secret baby he has with a federal relocation protectee (a la In Plain Sight). It should be out in early 2010... I'm having so much fun with it ;o)

    I am a big fan of butterflies so of course I think the necklaces are fantastic. I was over at dangerouswomen last night and read the excerpts for Dark Legacy. It is going to be a big hit. Thanks for sharing it with us. Have a great week-end and hugs to all.
