Spring? and Awesome Cover

Does anyone else think this is just weird? I love long, slow springs and watching different flowers and trees gradually unfolding their petals, so I'm a little disturbed that we seem to be fast-forwarding into summer. El Nino? Global warming? It's never happened this early, this fast in my garden, and it freaks me out. How about you?

On another note, I'm thrilled to present the cover of a novel I can't wait to read again: Transcendence.  Cynthia is a fellow Tenner, and one of my crit partners, so I read an earlier version of this and was totally sucked in. She's an amazing writer and working on the sequel now. Congrats on an awesome cover! You can read more about her and her novels here.
