The Accidental Werewolf...
Is this not a total hoot???? Okay, so my bud Juanita who I met on Michele Bardsley's group drew this up for me and it cracked me UP. It's her impression of my book (insert PROMO here. Snort) of The Accidental Werewolf (available in Feb 08--Berkley Sensation Trade paperback). In the book, my heroine isn't a beauty queen (this was da Juan cracking on me--note the Miss Paranormal banner. LOLLOL), however, my heroine, Marty, has a poodle named Muffin and Marty sells multi-level cosmetics. Kinda like Mary Kay--only I called it Bobbie-Sue. Marty's biggest ambition in life is to become the color lavender on her way up the ladder to the big finale of sky blue. Each color on the rung of success to Bobbie-sue Stardom represents how far you've gotten in the mega cosmetic comapny. If you make it to the top tier, ya get a sky blue convertible.

Marty's just achieved lavender status and proudly wears her new suit and heels when she's accidentally bitten by a werewolf while walking her teacup poodle Muffin one night. So note Juanita's take on Muffin... she's purple and sitting on a Muffin. LMAO

Anyhoodles--I thought I'd post this because I lurve Jaunita for thinking enough of me to take the time to draw this. Hell, I'd use it as a cover if I could, I love it so much.

Oh, and check out my shoes, would ya? Gawd, they're fab, huh? LOL

Many, many thanks, Juanita!!

Dakota :)

    There are about 8 billion comments on your interview over at TNJ so I decided to come over here and say it's always a pleasure getting an inside peak at your brain.

    (ok, so there were 23 comments, but that's not far off from about 8 billion)

    Dear Dakota,

    I mourn the loss of regular blog posts.

    The colour of mourning on the colour wheel is yellow.

    Please don't force me to wear yellow
