For my characters, anyway. That’s where ADEN’s story takes place (mostly), but the Cyn & Raphael novella starts in South Dakota and ends in Chicago. Which means the novella is all but written. It won’t go to my publisher just yet, because some continuity revisions might be necessary once ADEN is complete. But from here on out, it’s all Aden’s story. And what an interesting story it is. Not exactly a fairy tale. Unless you count the true Grimm’s fairy tales which were bloody and cruel.
btw LUCAS was Amazon’s Kindle Daily Deal last Sunday for Science Fiction and Fantasy, and it went through the roof, dropping into the top 100 in sales, and going #1 on three separate lists including Vampire Romance in both the Kindle and Book stores! My sincere thanks to everyone who helped make that possible. You all are the best!
I took a break this week to turn my damn taxes over to my accountant. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to get it off MY desk and onto his. It’s his problem now. Which means I can go back to spending time in my cave with Aden. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.
I am getting a surprising amount of reading done. Although, maybe it’s not surprising. I think it’s my normal amount of reading, it’s just that I’ve never kept track of how many books I read before. I’ve updated my 100 books in a year challenge, and I have to say … it’s not much of a challenge! LOL I’m at 37 books and we’re still in the first quarter of 2013! I also posted a couple of reviews on my MY GOODREADS PAGE.
And then there’s DABWAHA, the reader’s answer to March Madness. I’m failing miserably there. The bracket includes too many historicals, which I don’t read and that leaves me guessing. I’m barely above 50% on my bracket. Pitiful.
Movies … I finally saw THE HOBBIT this week. Shameful, I know, but events conspired to keep me from seeing it before now. I liked it, and although I thought the beginning was rather slow, it did finally pick up. And I have to say that Richard Armitage did the impossible and made Thorin Oakenshield sexy. When the dwarves are fighting, you forget all about the fact that they’re dwarves. Moving to Television … continuing to enjoy GRIMM, still wish Juliet would go away. Especially since she’s pretty much proven herself to be the dumbest female on the planet. I mean, really. She arrives home to find a gaping hole in her front room and she doesn’t think to call anyone? And when her phone finally rings … she drops it? Please. Oh, and she can’t unlock her door, and apparently it never occurs to her to break a damn window. No, she simply goes upstairs and goes to sleep. Evolution demands she be killed off before she breeds. THE FOLLOWING is in danger of losing me, but I’m hanging in there. And my heart is breaking because JUSTIFIED with the oh so sexy Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) has only two more episodes! I’m so sad.
All right. Enough pleasant chit chat. I’ve got to get back to work. Aden and Cyn have to trade a few insults, so he can move on to the big story.
Happy Passover (sundown tonight) and Happy Easter (next Sunday) … whichever holiday is yours.
I’ll be back here next week, same time, same place.
