We are days from the release of Black Magic Sanction, and from my perusal of the spoiler page, it sounds like you guys are enjoying it so far. ;-) Thanks for keeping the spoilers off the main posts. I REALLY appreciate it.
So for today, just a quick recap of the week.
Prom Nights from Hell is being re-released the same day as Black Magic Sanction with a beautiful new cover. This anthology is where I introduce Madison in the novella Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper. No witches or vampires here. It’s all about angels and timekeepers. Though targeted to young adult, it’s not just for the kids. (click for excerpt)
We had tons of snow, and I used the opportunity to figure out how to use YouTube. Remember the bunny cam from last year? This year, you can take ten-second videos as well, and I’ll try to put the best few up here and the website.
I put in a ten-hour day at Bitten by Books on Tuesday. Loved chatting with the readers there. Their ideas about love, romance, and lust have helped me decide what’s going on in Rachel’s head. Maybe. The chat is still up if you are interested in seeing what everyone had to say.
The last of the graphic novel pages (summer 2011) came in, and I finally got to see Kisten in the tub. Not as much Kisten showing as I wanted, so I asked for revisions. -laugh- Here is the page I _did_ share. Love the facial expressions.
Watched the Westminster dog show with Guy, our yearly tradition now stretching, ah, 24 years. My favorite to win, Bru, did not, but Sadie looks like a great dog.
Harper/Eos has put up a whopping seven chapters of Black Magic Sanction for your sneak peek pleasure. Spoiler page is a direct result of that. I won’t be commenting, but you know I read your comments. I’m glad someone picked up on that was in Glenn’s inbox. Not saying the theory is right, just that I put that there for a reason. -grin-
And I tried to cast some light on the drama of the e-books. I’ve not yet gone through the comments at the time I wrote this, but I skimmed yesterday, and I am astounded at variety of well-thought-out, clear-headed, strong opinions I’m seeing. There is no general consensus. Everyone is right, no one is wrong. This is going to take a while.
As for what I’ve been doing apart from above? I’ve been picking away this week on the species descriptions for the Hollows World Book. Did you know that trolls are actually more closely related to squid than humans? I didn’t, but it explains how they can shrink down like they do and why they eat concrete. (Since the shellfish they evolved eating aren’t available a thousand miles inland.) Mmmmm, fun.
No wonder I’m tired. . . ;-) Have a great weekend!
PS Book trailer on Monday. Come back and see!!!!
