I know I will be. (grin) Today is the day that I will be on live internet radio talking with the authors of the UNBOUND anthology. Jocelynn Drake, Vicki Pettersson, Jeaniene Frost, and Melissa Marr. And hopefully, some of you as well! Now’s your chance to grill us on our work, be it about the characters on the page or the way that we get our thoughts onto the page itself. I love doing these shows because someone from the post page usually calls in, and it’s always nice to put a voice to a name. 2:00 EST, but if you want to take advantage of the live chat beforehand, it’s a good idea to register and get your machines talking _before_ everyone else jams the system. Then you can just pop on when the show starts.
If you’ve been at the drama box at all this week, you know I’ve been doing a fast re-read of the entire series to help me prep myself for both the world book and the last ye-ha of the story arc. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at what I’ve re-discovered. Little things, mostly. Yesterday was THE OUTLAW DEMON WAILS. I like this one. It takes place at Halloween, which is likely my favorite holiday. This is also the beginning of Rachel and Ivy realizing they can’t have what they want without ruining it. (so far. Maybe for good. Don’t know yet) Rachel finding out who her dad is was a big “finally!” for me. I’d known it since DWW, and you can see hints of it every time she and he interact. But my favorite part, and this was unexpected at the time I wrote it, was Rachel keeping Quen alive Halloween night. Seeing Trent react when he realized that not only could he not help keep Quen alive, but that his mindset was actually detrimental? That Rachel could save Quen when he couldn’t? Wow. It was a huge blow to Trent, and probably the beginnings of him starting to grow as a person.
And then there were the demons. This was the first time we had a chance to see into the ever-after, and I’d forgotten how fun that was. We will see more. It’s already written.
So today is WHITE WITCH, BLACK CURSE, with a spot of time at 2:00 pm EST to chat with YOU!
