First of all, Pre-Fix is out there as of today--yay!
Meet Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire, in this charming introduction to Linda Grimes' "sparkling series" (Publishers Weekly).
A genetic quirk means Ciel can take on the appearance of anyone she meets by projecting their aura. This startling ability presents endless possibilities, and she's one of a rare few who has it...so you'd think it'd be easier finding a day job that lets her put it to use. Actress? Model? Ethically dubious and possibly criminal activities, like her best friend Billy? Ciel's long-time crush and fellow aura adaptor, Mark, has found his calling as a CIA agent-a life of intrigue, danger, and the perfect utilization of their rather unique skill set. It seems like the obvious choice to Ciel: She could do good and spend time with her crush. What could be better?

And, finally, a bit of awesome news I just got today: THE BIG FIX got a starred (!!!) review from Publishers Weekly!
I'm over the moon and grinning from ear to ear.
Funny thing: the "slightly discordant" moment the reviewer is referring is the absolute favorite scene of my agent, my editor, and the vast majority of my CPs, betas, and early readers. *grin* Whatever. I'm just thrilled with the rest of the review.
And the star. I'm thrilled with that, too. My first PW star. :D
Anyway, sorry to unload all this on you at once, but that's how things in the publishing biz apparently work. Long stretches of waiting, punctuated by busy-busy-busy-ness.
Hope all is well in your neck of the world. :)
Edited to Add Breaking news: Tor just dropped the price of the IN A FIX ebook to $2.99! (See above about stuff happening all at once.) So, if you haven't gotten around to reading it yet, for whatever reason, now you can grab it for a pretty good price.
