This is just a little post with a few tidbits of info that I've happened to see that is NW author related.
Kimberly Derting got her first ARC of The Essence (The Pledge #2) and it's gorgeous! In her post she talks about how much she loves to get them and hold them, but yet how she knows it's not yet perfect and people are actually going to read it. She doesn't want people reading something that isn't quite finished, yet. Head over and see all her thoughts on the subject.
And what do you think of that cover? I personally, love it! And think it compliments the first one well. It matches but the red really pops too.
And this is kind of old news, but Kimberly also went to England and France and she shared some pretty awesome pictures on her blog. I know I got all sorts of jealous. You gotta check it out!
From her blog:

It's ridiculous that she's a Pacific NW author and I'll probably be getting my friend to get her books signed for me at the Decatur Book Festival. But maybe not, I mean eventually I'll get the chance to meet her, right?
So you going to make it to one of these events?
We'll see you another time with more bookish news!
