Congrats to Stephen! It's an awesome cover. Thanks for the links. I like black cats. I love that on Friday the 13th and Halloween, you can adopt black cats for free at our local humane society. :)

So happy for Stephen. I've seen him lots of places this week.

Looks great, Stephen!

Murees Dupè said...

Congratulations, Stephen. This one sounds like a scary read. I don't mind black cats, but my mom freaks out:) Thank you for the links.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Our humane society actually does not adopt out the black cats on those days, just in case. Two drastically different approaches.

Shannon Lawrence said...

He's on fire!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Thanks for coming by, Alex!

I've met a few people who are superstitious about black cats. I have one, and she's not the first black cat I've owned! They've all been sweet, so far.

Stephen Tremp said...

Thank you Shannon for the shout out! I greatly appreciate the support!

Oh, I forgot about posting Stephen's book. Next week, I guess.

Thanks for the links. Strangs, Far Horizons and Concis all look appealing. I'll check out the Color blog. Could use the help.

Congrats to Stephen! Sounds like a great Halloween read!
Love black cats, but I'm allergic.

As always, thanks for the links!

I love black cats - he said, while petting the black cat lounging in his lap. Cool cover! Cheers to Stephen.

Susan Kane said...

Great plot and I love scary. Huzzah for you, Stephen!

This is the first time I've seen Steve's cover. (I've been sick and off the net for a while.) The cover's great! Yay for Steve! :)

Shannon Lawrence said...

I was happy to share!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Those all sound like good ones. Good luck!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Oh no! I'm mildly allergic, but way more allergic to dogs. So having a cat doesn't bother me unless I get her fur on my face on a bad allergy day.
