A while back I was interviewed by Dr. Lorna Piatti-Farnell (Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand) for her book The Vampire in Contemporary Popular Literature (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Literature.) How cool is that? And now the interview is available in the new on-line journal,AETERNUM:The Journal of Contemporary Studies. You can check it out HERE.
And a couple of weeks back, Bitten by Books had their six year blogaversary celebration, which included the giveaway of some huge prize packs, including a full autographed set of my Vampires in America books. If you haven’t checked already, you can find all of the winners HERE.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for something good to read, CRAVING, a Paranormal Romance by my friend Sofia Grey, Book 2 in her Talisman series, is out this week. Check it out. You’re going to like it!
I spent my week with VINCENT and Lana doing final edits on the manuscript. Nearly finished. After that, it goes off to my terrific critique partners and then my editor at ImaJinn/Belle. And I won’t see it again for a few months. Kind of sad, really. I miss my guys when I have to let them go. But next up is Cyn and Raphael, and I love writing about them!
On the small screen, well, it’s nearly time for the summer shows. In a surprise, LONGMIRE was back and it was terrific. There are a couple of new series I’m going to check out, not sure yet. And on the big screen, the DH and I checked out Liam Neeson’s TAKEN (yawn) and, being a huge Star Trek fan (original series) I watched Star Trek:Into Darkness for a second time.
Books – I’ve updated my GoodReads Challenge. I’m still 7 books behind, but making progress. I expect to make more once VINCENT is on his way. I’ll have to start work on the new Cyn and Raphael pretty quickly, but the DH and I might take a short vacation in the interim, somewhere on the ocean with a spa, so I can get a massage and lots of room service, and spend lazy mornings reading lots of books.
Summer is nearly upon us and it’s going to be long and hot … and not in a good way (heh heh.) It’s already awfully hot here in SoCal, our air conditioner is running most of the day and sometimes night. Ugh, summer is not my favorite season. Bring on the fall!
And now, I’m off to work on VINCENT some more. The coyotes are howling, Buffy’s on the TV (the musical episode where Buffy and Spike finally kiss) and I’ve got my Diet Cherry Coke to caffeinate me through the night.
Have a great week, and Happy Father’s Day (next Sunday) to all the dads out there!
