As always when I’m buried deep in writing a book, especially when I’m in the second half of a book and the action has picked up and things are happening, I don’t surface much for anything else. So this week wasn’t a particularly busy one, other than writing, of course.
I did update my What I’m Reading Now section, since I’m always reading something, even if it’s only for an hour before I fall asleep every night (morning.) There are a couple of great books releasing today, by the way. In fact, they’re probably already on my Kindle—Nalini Singh’s Kiss of Snow, which is Hawk’s story, and Ilona Andrews’ Magic Slays. My only problem will be deciding which one to read first!
And there are still two giveaways open … at Parajunkee’s View, until June 6, and especially at Black Lagoon Reviews, until June 3. There are hardly any entries on the Black Lagoon site so far, so if you want a signed copy of one of my books, this may be your best chance. All you have to do to enter is comment, although you can gain extra entries by doing other stuff. Also, as I mentioned last week, anyone reading this blog who wins one of the giveaways can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if they want any other book instead, including DUNCAN, and I’ll substitute. Of course, if you choose DUNCAN, you’ll have to wait for his release. Note, this is only for readers of this blog, so please don’t share. Be DO rush over and enter! 😀
SOPHIA did get a new review this week. Actually I’m not quite sure when it posted, but I happened upon it this week. It’s at Nocturne Reads, and SOPHIA earned the full 5 hoots, which makes me very happy.
SOPHIA also continues to hold the #1 Dark Fantasy spot at Fictionwise.com, as well as ranking in the top ten overall, plus my guys are holding down four of the top five spots for highest rated Dark Fantasy, also. As always, these are the latest rankings as of this posting.
So, business out of the way and on to pleasure. I’ve begun to contemplate my next Vampire Vignette in the off hours when DUNCAN lets me rest. I’ll be turning DUNCAN in to my publisher the middle of July, so I’m planning a Vignette re-run for the middle of Summer, culminating as always in something brand new. I haven’t decided what it will be yet, but if you read Cyn’s interview at Parajunkee’s View, you know Raj and Sarah’s wedding isn’t too far off. I just haven’t decided if they’ll get married before or after DUNCAN. But either way, there will be a new Vignette this Summer.
And speaking of character interviews, SOPHIA and COLIN will sit down for their first ever interview for Steph and Athenna at Paranormal Haven on June 4th. It’s part of their Bookish Haven Summer Vacation extravaganza and, as always, there will be a giveaway involved! I’ll be posting the interview to Facebook and Twitter once it goes live, plus I’ll remind you all about it next week, too.
By the way, if you want to catch me on Facebook and/or Twitter, there are links up above to friend, follow and/or subscribe if you’re so inclined.
Finally, today is the official recognition of Memorial Day here in the U.S., the day we remember those men and women who have given so much so
the rest of us don’t have to, and especially those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I have many readers in the military, and even more who have friends and family serving here and overseas. I thank every one of you for your service and wish you a speedy and safe return home to your loved ones.
See you next week …
