Wednesday Teaser & NaNo Update

First off, even though I'm in the midst of NaNoWriMo, There's a Fine Line will post next week as scheduled. Mainly, this is due to the fact that this chapter has been finished for about three weeks. Therefore, you all get a lovely teaser on schedule! Check out THIS SNIPPET and see what you think. I have to warn you, however, that again this is the nice part of the chapter. Blake gets his hands on Mathewson in the main portion of the chapter and it's not a pretty sight. Yes, there'll be a disclaimer and if you're not up to reading about physical torture, I'll ask that you skim most of the mid-section of the chapter. Blake's a good guy, for the most part, but he's a dark, scary vamp who takes few shortcuts in getting the information he wants.

As for the NaNo Update, I'd like to take a moment to squeal like a teenaged girl at a Justin Bieber concert. Part of NaNo is a project called 30 Covers in 30 Days where they get professional artists to volunteer to knock out the cover art for a chosen synopsis per day. The art isn't for publication purposes since it's not the proper size, etc, but it's cool to get nonetheless. They pick 3 synopses per artist and I was thrilled to get chosen to be one of those three. Then today I got the email saying my NaNovel was chosen to get a cover. Imagine the squee! The following is the blurb about the artist who designed the cover for my NaNovel,  The Bokkenrijder Curse:
Alberto Rigau was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Exposure to his father’s architectural practice motivated an early freelancing career which later transformed into Estudio Interlínea and the publishing imprint Editorial Revés. Alberto’s work has been recognized by the American Institute of Graphic Arts, exhibited in Puerto Rico, the United States, Portugal and Spain, and published in various magazines and books. He currently lectures on design thinking methodologies and creativity as a tool to ignite meaningful cultural experiences.
And now, the cover he created:
I like it. I think it fits. I did a little dance around the house. XD Now to get back to writing it!

Enjoy the snippet!
