ofwarspromopic-2“What was it you came over to tell me?” Perish made her way back over to the table and looked at her late grandmother’s friends, Father Mike Clements and Cash Hayes, in turn. “And please, just tell me. I’d like to know before one or both of you gets murdered.”

Again, they both burst into laughter, but Perish didn’t smile as she sat across from them.

“All right, lass. You win, though you could let a couple of old men enjoy the warmth of your hearth and the pleasure of your company for a little bit,” said Father Clements.

Perish squashed the guilt that flared. “Are you going to tell me?”

“How much do you know about your parents?”

Perish frowned. “Only what Grandmother said in…

The year is 2075 and in a world where governments have collapsed, societies are crumbling and the number of paranormal beings is close to overtaking that of humans, bounty hunter extraordinaire (and paranormal super beyotch) Perish Blackburn never has a shortage of jobs to fulfill. Her last one, however, was a doozy. No bounty hunter who knows her worth would want to travel back in time to Nazi-era Germany on behalf of a wizard for what amounts to really just a pittance in the grand scheme of things. But Perish takes on the job, and per usual, she does it…

Bohemian Chairs

IMG_0084.JPGMy mother-in-law gave us a pair of chairs. They’re Eastlake and quite lovely, but the needlepoint seats were not our style. I was at World Market yesterday and saw these 2×3’ rugs and realized they’d make a great cover. They cost about $15 and one was enough to cover both chairs. I think I’m going to buy some more to make throw pillows. Just remember to cut them as little as possible—they fall apart easily. I stay-stitched along the edges before I cut it. I think I’ll make some big throw pillows and not cut those at all. I love the texture and colors, and the fact that they’re cheap.

It’s been a long time since a review made me cry, but this one had me all up in my feels. It’s no secret that much as I love this series, it doesn’t sell well. I knew from the beginning what I wanted this series to be, so that was never an issue, but this cover? Good grief, that was a struggle. A hijab on the cover of a romance book? I’d never seen it, (which was a key motivator to do it) and knew it would turn some readers off.

I thought long and hard about leaving it off, especially since I had a helluva time finding a stock photo that would work. Whit finally had to merge four photos, and y’all don’t know what a struggle that is (not to mention the expense). I looked at stock photos until my eyes crossed trying to find pictures where the angles and shadows were just right. I’ve done it so much I’m officially an expert! Even so, I am so glad I stuck to my original vision. It’s amazeballs when people read the story and understand where I was coming from. Love against all odds. Regardless of religion or political strife or whatever. It’s still love folks and that’s the business I’m in.
