Book - um, okay, still one thing to go. ;)

Howdy Kimber,

You'll have to let me know who your editor is at Berkley. If it's Anne Sowards we're publishing cousins.

My editor's not Anne Sowards, but Anne did play a part in the creation of Would-be Witch. I met her at a conference and pitched the concept in the hallway. (I love all the dark urban fantasies at ACE/ROC, but had this idea for something light rattling around my brain. I wasn't sure anyone would be interested in a light urban fantasy, so I asked her what she thought.)

She was not only very kind, but she expressed interest in the premise. I began work on the story the same day.

So, maybe you and I are second cousins? ;)

Thanks for linking it!
