Yes, that’s right, Duncan and I are still spending our nights together, although it’s getting a little crowded now that he’s hooked up with his true love … his true love after ME, that is. 😉 The story is rounding the final curve, which induces two emotions in me … the first is relief, because I have a deadline I want to meet so my readers (i.e., all of you) get Duncan’s story on schedule. But the second is raw panic, because when I’m this deep into a story I can’t see the whole of it anymore. Until I write that last word, and then go back and read it again from start to finish, I won’t really know if it all works or not. But, not to worry, I will finish it, and just in case I don’t know what I’m talking about, my wonderful critique partners will be their usual brutally honest selves. ::sigh:: (Just kidding, guys!)

I did take a break earlier this evening to watch an hour (or so) of TV, partly because my eyes are sore, and not just from staring at the computer screen. We had so much rain this winter that there’s tons of springtime allergy stuff floating in the air of my very green canyon. It reminds me of that movie Legend with Tom Cruise. Terrible movie, but I remember there was so much stuff floating around that forest, I couldn’t believe the actors didn’t choke on it. Weird.

Anyway, the OTHER reason I took a break was because I wanted to watch The Game of Thrones on HBO. Curse you, Lannisters!! But Winter is coming and you’ll pay! (hee, hee) I’ve read these books and they’re doing a GREAT job of bringing it to the screen. The casting is also just excellent, and for once, they actually make family members LOOK like each other!

But now it’s back to DUNCAN, after I send my weekly missive to all of you, of course. 🙂

Let’s see I have one giveaway still in progress, and that’s the SOPHIA/COLIN interview over at Paranormal Haven’s Bookish Haven Summer Vacation spectacular. That giveaway ends July 15th, so plenty of time to get in on it. And you definitely want to read what Sophia and Colin are up to.

I’m also doing a brand new guest blog on Wednesday this week, June 15, at Bitten by Paranormal Romance. I’ll post the link on Facebook and Twitter once I have it on Wednesday.

I think that’s it for this week. I’ve had my Game of Thrones break and my time with you all, and now it’s back to my slave driving muse who wants me to FINISH!

See you all at Bitten by Paranormal Romance on Wednesday, and right back here next Sunday.



  1. Duncan in love. This is going to be good. You used the words ‘on schedule’ , so I have to ask…when is Duncan going to be released? I’m not looking for an exact date or anything, but could you name a month?

    My husband and I have not read the books, so as we watched Game of Thrones last night we were right there with you, and actually wishing some very cruel things for the Lannisters….and the council members as well.
    Take care!

  2. If everything goes as planned, Duncan should be out in December. Just in the holidays!

    As for Game of Thrones, I was cursing the useless Council as they let that in-bred monster teenager have his way. Fools. I have a feeling they’re going to regret their choice. Ha! ((EG))

  3. Usually I don’t wish the Summer away but boy please December hurry and get here! I can not wait to see what you do with Duncan!!!

  4. What a wonderful Christmas present. I love GAME OF THRONES as well. I think HBO is doing a good job. Did you read the books? Yes, I frequently cursed at many of the characters in the books and was shocked when the “good guys” were knocked off. So while I accept it in George R. R. Martin’s work ( sort of) please, please don’t you start killing off your heroes.

  5. I did read the books, Ellen, and thought they were great. I suppose it’s inevitable that some of the good guys will have to die in a series as complex as Martin’s. But don’t worry, I have no plans to say good-bye to any of my good guys! I’d fear for my life if I did! LOL

  6. Hi D.B.,
    I am looking forward to December also as Duncan is one of my favorite characters and i can hardly stand the wait.
    Just found out about A Game of Thrones last week…downloaded the audible book and all I can say is WOW!
    Keep up the good work with the Vampire in America series.
