Cast in Silence Cover, attempt one

I have been so absent lately I can almost hear crickets, and I've been dusting cobwebs off my hands and feet while I try to make a bit of space in the Michelle-clutter.

I finally have a scan of the actual cover flat for Cast in Silence which is an August 2009 release. I really like it.

It's in theory behind the cut:

The book is finished.

Sadly, House Name is not finished. A small author-is-not-very-clever misunderstanding about the conversion of MS Word wordcounts to page run-off counts means that the book I thought was a bit on the long side, while unfinished, was, ummm, very very very much on the long side. I haven't taken much of a break from writing; I just haven't reached the magical "the end" words. This reminds me a bit of writing the planned two volumes which comprised The Sun Sword. Which, of course, is six volumes.

So... I'm still working on that. I have also started the tentatively titled Cast in Chaos, which is the first of the three new Cast novels I just sold Luna. It is the book I affectionately refer to as the Refugee Book. This won't hopefully be as dark--to me--as Silence.

*edited because a good friend pointed out that 'mat' and 'matte' are not the same word.

House name is a bit on the long side? Bring it on!
I am thrilled to hear that House Name is more than on its way. I am also pretty much juggling myself on the edge of my chair when i hear its going to be on the long side.

Hidden City was marvelously long, and at the same time agonizingly short. Why short? Because the book had to end sometime, and i didn't ever want it to end! Probably very faulty logic there, but this series is simply too enchanting to care much about that!

Therefore, when i hear House Name is going to be long, i am sincerely running out of my skin in joy.

Thank you, very, very much for writing such a wonderful story.
