Bracelet with a Scarab Clasp.
Gold and semi-precious stones.
18th dynasty, reign of Tutankhamun,
Thebes, Valley of the Kings.
Found in the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Treasury in a box in the shape of a cartouche. The scarab is attached to a flexible band of seven panels.
While attending the Toronto King Tut exhibition, my daughter bought me this replica bookmark in brass.
In truth, I would be bouncing off the walls if it were physically possible!
My urban fantasy has a new title - which I like better and better and better the more I see it. The book will be promoted as paranormal suspense.
I'll post the new title as soon as I have a final cover.
The production team were torn between two possible covers and asked Editor Guy and me for our opinions. I am delighted with the representation of Lillie, figure placement and the background of both.
More than that, Carina sent me a schedule for the ramp-up for launch in June. Everyone at Carina has/have been working like indentured demons but they manage somehow to keep their authors up to date.
!! and !!!
I am HUA and hot damn and giggling with excitement !

After reading again Steven King's struggle after his accident in On Writing, I'm ashamed to have bleated about my sciatica/pinched nerve problems here on the blog.
Since mother is perforce reclusive at present, my daughter and I quietly celebrated the arrival of my Carina/Harlequin contract at the kitchen table with a bowl of big red strawberries, a bottle of cheap champagne (but in my best flutes), a shrimp ring and a Tuscany dip for soft buns.
What is your favourite form of milestone celebration?
Addendum: Forgot to mention: This is the 4th anniversary of Evil Editor's blog, EE being a hilariously worthy and valuable successor to our beloved Miss Snark.
