So, my favorite commercial was the Volkswagen one with the little Darth Vader. Loved it. I laughed so hard. I have a male relative (who shall graciously remain nameless) who used to sing the entire Darth Vader theme. Duh duh duh duh duh-duh duh duh-duh. The whole thing! LOL He never got a car to start, though.

I wrote the epilogue to Duncan today. Not because I’ve finished the rest of the story, but because I’ve been mulling over how to introduce Book Six (SIX!! OMG!!!) and it suddenly hit me. I wrote it out so I wouldn’t forget. And I like it!

Now, of course, I have to get back to writing everything that comes BEFORE the epilogue. I’m loving DUNCAN, though, so no problems there.

Next week, I’ll be posting the first teaser chapter for SOPHIA. I’m so excited about this book! I wish April was here already!!

And the first three books are doing extremely well in Kindle sales! RAPHAEL, especially, since he’s priced at only $2.99, but all three books continue to sell really well. RAPHAEL goes up and down, but he pretty much stays somewhere in the top 100 Kindle sales for Romance/Vampire. JABRIL and RAJMUND flit in and out of the top 100. For a brief time today, RAPHAEL actually bumped into the top 100 Kindle/Fiction/Horror. I never thought of RAPHAEL as horror, but I guess if it’s Vampire, it’s horror!!

Don’t forget that the latest contest, which is asking for Duncan’s last name, continues. I’ve gotten quite a few entries, but I’ve also gotten a couple of e-mails asking if it’s a trick question. And the answer is NOPE. Duncan definitely has a last name and it’s definitely somewhere in the first three books. I’ll accept entries until midnight February 19th, PST, and I’ll be announcing the winner on February 20th. Entries should be e-mailed to dbreynoldswriter@live.com and be sure to put Contest in the subject line, so my SPAM filter doesn’t toss it.

And my good friend and wonderful writer, Adrian Phoenix, is giving away signed galleys and cover flats of her forthcoming Etched in Bone, which is the fourth book of her Maker’s Song series. THAT is one book I’ve already pre-ordered for my Kindle. Midnight on February 22, that book is MINE!!

And finally, a reminder that I’ll be wandering around the RT Booklovers Convention in L.A. in April, and signing at the Book Expo. Plus JABRIL has been nominated for an RT Reviewer’s Choice award, which will be announced at the convention. It would be nice to see some familiar faces, or at least put faces to familiar names!

Hmmm, okay, it’s back to writing for me. Duncan awaits!!

See you next week with the first taste of SOPHIA!



  1. you’re right about the cute commercial. I came across it online on Friday and sent it around the email rounds. I don’t send much stuff like that but that one was too darn cute not to share!

    By the way, you’re not the only one wishing it were already April and time for Sophia to be released!

  2. I’m going on Hulu.com to watch the commercials. Athenna and I were to busy catching up on Supernatural to watch the game. Will we be seeing a cover for Sophia soon?

    1. I’m on the last two episodes of Supernatural Season 5! And I’m totally stressed because I’ve only DVR’d the last five episodes of Season 6! I can watch the others on my computer, but I like to watch while I do my exercise! The boys keep my mind on other matters … if you get my drift.

      On the SOPHIA cover … it’s my fault we don’t have one yet. I’m being picky and my publisher is indulging me. But soon.

  3. DB – I also loved the Darth Vader but hated the Pepsi commercial where the date couldn’t decide if he wanted to “sleep with the girl” or drink the Pepsi. OCH!
    Also pre-ordered Etched in Bone (ain’t Kindle wonderful?) and This Side of the Grave (book 5 of Cat and Bones). Pantingly looking forward to the tease of SOPHIA…can’t come soon enough!

    1. The Camaro one was cute, with Miss Evelyn. I hated the Sony one where they sewed thumbs onto the robot. Creepy.

  4. Personally, I liked the Betty White commercial best, but come on, how can anyone not love Betty White??

    I’ve also got Etched in Bone pre-ordered (along with the new Cat & Bones and the next Saint-Germain. But since I don’t have a Kindle (yet!) I’ve ordered them in good old paper.

    I wish I could be at the convention in L.A. I live in the Bay Area, so not too far away, but I can’t get the time off work.

    Can’t wait to find out more about Sophia!

  5. I have Etched in Bone pre-ordered as well as Cat and Bones! LOL Can’t wait! I have to admit, I’m struggling to find Duncan’s last name! It’s probably right in front of my face. But, I keep missing it! UGH!! I love this series and I really wanted to win! Darn! Oh well, I won’t give up. I’m really looking forward to reading about Sophia! 😉
