Okay, Ireland people. I’ll be arriving in Dublin on September 12, which isn’t far away, so I need to make some plans. For any of my readers who’d like to get together, I have questions. I need to know if a weekday or Saturday works better for you. I have a few day trips planned, but I can shuffle those around. Also, I need advice from anyone who knows Dublin about where we can meet. My hotel is the Shelbourne, which has a couple of bars. We could meet in one of those, or if there’s someplace better, please let me know. I’m thinking we need a place with drinks and at least bar food. Ideas?

I took myself to an afternoon matinee of Hitman’s Bodyguard, with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel Jackson. It’s violent, funny, and great fun. I really loved it.

For those who might have missed it, ADEN is now available on AUDIBLE! And VINCENT’s recording has begun. Yay! I’ll be starting a giveaway for ADEN’s AUDIO next week, so stay tuned!

Okay, my publisher’s giveaway on the Kato Coasters is over, but mine is just beginning.

I spent all this week writing like crazy. RELENTLESS, Cyn & Raphael e-novella #5—revisions are complete and have been sent back to my publisher. Vampire Vignettes—I’m having fun writing the Raphael/Juro/Kenichi story. I always knew in my head (and my notes) how they met, but it’s a whole ‘nother thing to write the story down.

Another unspeakable act bloodied our world this week. I only hope we don’t end up so numb to these attacks that the pain of those affected ceases to rip our hearts open. I send my love to the beautiful city of Barcelona—to its people, and to all the people of Spain, as they deal with this terrible tragedy.
