Want to join my book group?

One of my Facebook friends, Jonathan Geisel, just started up a book group for my urban fantasies. I'm hoping that there can be discussions and perhaps some book giveaways in the future, if we get enough people. I'd love for you to join!

Go here:

Back!

I have been very bad about keeping up with my blog during this latest deadline, but I've just turned in the third BLOODLANDS book and I can breathe! (For a day.)

I'm taking the rest of the day off. I'm going to READ, baby! I just started ROSEMARY AND RUE by Seanan McGuire and I really want to get back to it. I haven't been so involved in a story for a while. It's about a fae community in San Francisco, and it's engaging and detailed and really creative.

(OMG, I typed "creature" instead of "creative" before I corrected it. Shows you where my mind is still at. I *literally* just sent in Bloodlands 3 a few minutes ago after a last polish.)

Ooo--I'm also reading PERSUASION by Jane Austen, just because I had a craving for... I don't know. Genteel romance? High-waisted dresses? Awesomeness?

Okay. I'm off. Hope you all are doing well. ; )

Such a Nice Post!

The lovely Juliannette (AKA Annette) kindly posted about me on her blog, so I'd like to point it out! She's also working on a book, so to check all of that out, go to:

I'm so grateful and tickled whenever one of you posts something about me! [Yeesh, what an ego, huh? : ) ]

Seriously?

Oh, HELL no, NBC.

"NBC just bought a spec script for “Zombies Vs. Vampires.” Deadline Hollywood says:

Zombies vs. Vampires is described as a "fun buddy cop procedural." It is set in a world where zombies are a part of society, controllable with medication. The show's two leads (one secretly a vampire) are cops assigned to a squad specifically formed to deal with "zombie crime"."

Nothing more to be said.

You guys know how I love those You Tube things where clever people make an "alternate movie trailer." Here's one for INCEPTION.
