Wishes *Do* Come True!

I have always admired artists with a sort of fangirl squee appreciation. I’ve had boyfriends and best friends who were artists. I have a wish list of artists I’d love to have design my book covers…and some have! I can stare at paintings for HOURS. Everyone who brings me to art museums eventually regrets it. (I’m SO GLAD I…

Happy Holidays 2011!

This year’s CD artwork was inspired (as so many things are) by two of Janet Lee’s holiday ornaments. They are both available in this year’s 2011 limited edition set at Art & Invention Gallery, as well as on Janet’s own Etsy site (for those of us who don’t live convenient to East Nashville). 1. The Most Wonderful Day Of…

The Princess of Light and Dark

Ariell’s beautiful and talented friend Natalie drew this picture of me, for me, and it is so many kinds of fabulous that I wanted to share it with you…and discuss some things.   First of all, I am fabulous and gorgeous. I have huge eyes and awesome cleavage and the tiara is perfect and this dress ROCKS. So far,…

A Match Made in Heaven

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Emma #1 from New York Times best-selling writer Nancy Butler (Sense & Sensibility) and rising star artist Janet K. Lee (Return of the…

What I Was Up To Yesterday

Because: 1.) I miss Janet and Ornament Gulag 2.) Making ornaments is fun 3.) Artwork is relaxing 4.) All of my Christmas decorations are still in Tennessee, and I can’t afford (and don’t really want) to buy a bunch more stuff 5.) I wrote about 3000 words on my story and thought I deserved it 6.) Nutcrackers are awesome…

Happy DAPPER Day!

In celebration of today’s release of Jim McCann & Janet Lee’s Return of the Dapper Men, I have changed my profile pics on both Twitter and Facebook to this Dapper version of MOI! Janet drew this last year for the “Diary of a Mad Scientist Garden Gnome” serial (which, like Dapper Men, was *also* inspired by a J.K. Lee…

Miss Gnomer

Now that she’s got a bit of time between Return of the Dapper Men and her next book, artist J. K. Lee is filling her Etsy shop with fabulous new holiday ornaments, like this guy above. I seriously advise snapping one (or many) up now while they’re 1.) available and 2.) affordable. After USA Today called Return of the…

Wassap?

Lots of errands to run today. Strategic hits, all of them…it’s kind of amazing how much we got done. SEARCH AND DESTROY, BABY. Now, I am organizing art supplies. And then I will work on my novel. Maybe not necessarily in that order…but both need to be done.I am SO behind on NaNo…but I am so not worried, because…
