So my inbox has been very busy this week. Lots of meetings in NY (I wasn’t there, but I can see the aftermath in my inbox) and me getting ready for my two conferences this year. I’ll be at RWA in NY, and Comic Con in San Diego in July, and things are starting to fall into place for them both.
One good thing that came out of the NY meetings was we now have a clear and definite title for book ten! It will be called . . .
Wait for it . .
A Perfect Blood!
This is from the movie “A Perfect World” which was directed by Clint Eastwood as well as a fairly good size part being played by him too. I watched it last night since I’d not seen this one. Kevin Costner was the lead roll, which was a bonus. I always like the characters he plays. Emotionally closed characters are hard to do, and this one had two of them in the car. It worked for me, and I liked it. The only thing I wish they’d spent a little more care on would be at the beginning where they introduced the boy and the rigidity of his life due to his religious beliefs. Although it was highlighted, it was hard to grasp the _depth_ of it, and it wasn’t clear why the boy liked his abductor so much until almost the end. But perhaps that was the point and I simply missed it.
Anyhoo . . . I can quit calling it the next Hollows book and call it what it is. A Perfect Blood. The title matches the inside really well for this one . . . :-)
P.S. Guy has asked me to announce that he has gotten all the ordered merchandise out apart from the few things that came in this week, so if you’ve ordered something and you’ve not gotten it yet, drop him a line at vampcharms at comporium dot net.
