Yes, indeed, Arial Burnz interviewed me a couple of weeks back for her ParaNormal Radio podcast series! It’s up today, with a double giveaway. Two readers (or should I say listeners) will have her/his choice of any of my backlist, either autographed print or ebook, winner’s choice. We talked about where my vampires come from, why I write what I do, and I reveal my own personal paranormal experience–no, not the vampire in Malibu one–but a ghost story from when I lived with my first husband, who was far more forgettable than the ghost. There’s a snippet from the previous feature and some ads, and then my interview starts at 01:50, it runs about ten minutes, then there’s another commercial break, and it picks up again around 11:30. One caveat … I say in the interview that the release schedule will be September for UNFORGIVEN and October for VINCENT, but as I’ve posted on this blog the FINAL RELEASE SCHEDULE is October/November, with UNFORGIVEN releasing on October 1, and VINCENT on November 1. A small difference, but an important one.
You can listen and enter the giveaway at PARANORMAL RADIO. Or, you can also find the podcast on the PNR iTunes channel. It came out better than I’d hoped, given that it all happened before noon. And after you’ve listened to me three or four times (ha,ha) there are lots of archived podcasts, including one of my all-time favorite authors, the brilliant and charming Nalini Singh.
In other news, I stepped away from my computer and out my front door last Monday/Tuesday night and watched the lunar eclipse and the blood moon. Fantastic! So beautiful to watch. The skies were clear and the moon was high enough that I didn’t even have to climb up on my roof to see around the trees.
On the writing front, it’s all moving very fast now. I actually wrote the penultimate scene today. A little out of sequence, but I woke up with a terrific scene in my head (as happens sometimes) and I had to get it all down. I was very happy with the way it worked out on paper, too. (Okay, so actually on the computer screen, but …) I’m so close to finishing this story, I almost can’t believe it. Vincent is Vampire Lord #8! Which means the next story I write about my vampires will be a whole new story arc that will take us back to Cyn and Raphael. It’s wonderful and amazing how far we’ve come.
And speaking of wonderful and amazing things, a friend posted a link to a somewhat, um, different video this week. It’s a very distinguished gentleman who was intrigued by a Barbie-like doll that claims to be part of the Flaming Pussies gang and which includes a flamethrower. So he opens the package, and, well … you have to watch it. I literally couldn’t stop laughing. HERE’S THE LINK so you can laugh, too.
Books … I’m heading over to GoodReads to update my 2014 Reading Challenge. I hope I’m catching up a little. TV … GAME OF THRONES continues to be fantastic! Although I do worry about Sansa. That girl can’t seem to catch a break, while Jaime has questionable timing and an unhealthy obsession. We’ll see how far he’s willing to go for his sister/lover who he admits is a hateful woman.
And now I’m back to Vincent and Lana, because I need to go back and write the events that lead UP to that penultimate scene which I enjoyed so much!
Have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you back here, same time, same place.
