Exciting News

Not my own news just yet, but exciting for my adopted little brother in Poland. He and I have been great friends for years. He spent last summer with me here in Texas and he's coming again next April.

Since we became friends, I've finished two books and he's been signed on as a cover artist for two publishers in Poland. I was browsing Polish book store websites this morning and found out that this book he is on the cover of:

is number 25 on the Best Seller's list in Poland. Isn't it pretty? He's such a good artist. He did the covers for the Melissa De La Cruz Blue Bloods series. These are his other covers:

To see his other amazing art, this is his webpage: Wojtek's Awesomeness

I don't have any news of my own just yet. I'm still spending time with my daughter while she's in town. We're off to my parents' house today. I have two partials and one full MS out with agents right now. Keep your fingers crossed. I hope everyone's doing good. Sorry for the absence, but I'll be back regularly in a week or two.

Miss you guys!

Those are amazing covers. If my novel, NOCTURNE, ever gets picked up, I could hope for nothing better than for him to do the cover for it.

I miss your presence, but life has a way of sweeping us along banks we never would have chosen for ourselves. Roland

Nick said...

Christi please tell Mia she would look cuter if she left her hair messy. You know it's true ;p

Mia Hayson said...

Don't bring Christi into this. Geez. Your main argument is that it would suit me because I'm crazy. I mean. Bah.

I said MAYBE.

*pats zombies*

Nick said...

No that is not my main argument.

My main argument is I am a good imaginer and I have seen you with purtiful hair and my imagination says crazy hair suits you better so therefore it is TRUE.

*sits on zombie's head*

I'm not leaving until I get a YES.

Mia Hayson said...

Well I guess Nick is stuck in Christi's blog for a long time. Hmmmm.


Nick said...

*steals toast* Well I can wait. *smooshes Mia's hair*

Mia Hayson said...


Nick said...

*sits on Mia's shoulder*

Shaggy hair pls. You know I am right.

Nick said...

What if I were to offer you a pair of heelys?

Mia Hayson said...


You totally owe me a pair of Heelys. PRONTO.
