Once again, I’m deep into a new book—this time, Vincent’s story—so I’m just doing a fly-by post. Especially since the BIG post happened on last Friday, Valentine’s Day. In case you missed it, I went a little crazy this year. First up was a brand new VAMPIRE VIGNETTE just for the holiday.
But then I added a story about lingerie … from the lingerie’s POV. Strange but true. You can check it out at my friend Gareth’s site FALCATA TIMES.
I want to thank all of my readers who wrote and posted how much they loved the Vignette and the lingerie too, and all of you who wished me a Happy Valentine’s Day. I have the best readers in the world!
And now for a few updates … I posted this on Facebook, but I’ll post it here, too. For those of you who use Kobo … ADEN is finally available, and it only took them two months! Now, if only they’d catch up on the earlier re-released titles, not to mention the novellas. HERE’S THE LINK to ADEN for you, since Kobo’s search engine leaves a hella lot to be desired.
As for naming Vincent’s love interest … BHW (Bounty Hunter Woman) has a tentative name, but I’m holding it close until I’m sure. I’ll write a few more chapters and make sure it flows. Speaking of flowing, however, the chapters are definitely flowing, and I’m a terrible, fickle person, because my new object of lust is Vincent. Think tall, dark and Latino … black hair that’s always too long, chocolate brown eyes, long, lean … what’s not to lust over? BHW is pretending she doesn’t notice. As if. On the other hand, it drives Vincent NUTS! So, you go, girl!
Let’s see … small screen was limited this week because of the Olympics, but there were a few bright spots. BITTEN (based on Kelley Armstrong’s terrific series) is finally finding its rhythm. I’m beginning to wish it was a movie, so I wouldn’t have to wait a week in between! And both ALMOST HUMAN and INTELLIGENCE had new episodes, both very good. JUSTIFIED, too, with Jonathan from Buffy (Danny Strong) as a predatory prison guard. I also caught up on ARROW, although I was disappointed to learn that Season 2 is still going on. I thought for sure the series was in Season 3 and I’d have a whole season to binge watch. Bummer. It’s good for the cursed elliptical.
The DH and I watched RUSH, the racing movie with Chris Hemsworth. I think I liked it more than the DH, but then I grew up in L.A.’s car culture, so fast driving has a natural appeal. Both to watch and to do. And Chris Hemsworth isn’t exactly hard on the eyes, either. Bad DB, Bad!
Other than that, I’m back to letting Buffy roll on the TV while I write, and I STILL cry at all the same places. In fact, I know the series so well that I TURN THE VOLUME UP on those scenes, so that I can watch them and cry! Clearly a lost cause.
Oh, and I almost forgot, now that I’ve finished with the galley proofs on the re-releases, I’m reading again and will soon have several books to add to my 2014 Book Challenge. Nothing spectacular yet, but a few enjoyable reads. A couple of my favorite authors have books out this week, though, so I expect that assessment to change!
And now it’s back to Vincent for me. Have a wonderful week, and to all of my U.S. readers, enjoy your Presidents’ Day Holiday Weekend!
