Every now and then, you get to do something that makes your skin tingle.  For me, it's spreading the word of a fellow author at my wonderful agency, Inklings Literary Agency.

So, without further ado, please ogle, fawn, and cheer over the cover for CHARMING by Michelle Johnson's wonderfully talented client Elliott James.

Now obviously, the first thing you will all be wondering is a) What is this amazing looking book about?  and b) Where can I get it?

The answer to question a)

He comes from a line of Charmings — an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch-finders and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chainmail and crossbows to shotguns and kevlar, he was one of the best. That is– until he became the abomination the Knights were sworn to hunt.

That was a lifetime ago. Now, he tends bar under an assumed name in rural Virginia and leads a peaceful, quiet life. One that shouldn’t change just because a vampire and a blonde walked into his bar … Right?

The answer to question B) CHARMING will be released in September 2013 (Orbit).

Now for the fun bit!!!
