So we’re 12 days into 2009 and I’m no closer to finding my lost sisters. Actually, that doesn’t sound right. I suspect they’re not really lost at all. I bet they know exactly where they are. It might be better to say I’ve been unable to locate my heretofore unknown sisters. I still don’t know… read more.
It’s been a very strange journey this year and I’m not sorry to see it end. It hasn’t all been bad. On the contrary, many wonderful things happened this year. Let’s just say much of the year has had a very surreal feel to it and I’m more than ready to start fresh. What do… read more.
Let us just say the last two weeks here in River City (FYI the pic is the Spokane River near the Falls) have been more than a little interesting. First I find out I have one half-sister I never met and then I find out there are TWO! Imagine that…two sisters I never heard a word… read more.
And by lost, I mean a sister I didn’t even know existed until a week ago today. Of course, when you have a father you haven’t seen or heard from since the age of five, it’s entirely possible I have more than just a missing sister. But, for the moment, all I know for certain… read more.
Okay…I don’t care what anyone says–madness prevails when the moon is full. The phone calls I get are strange, people are strange and don’t even get me started on the animals. My dogs get twitchy as can be the minute the moon hits a 100 watts. Don’t get me wrong, I love a full moon. It’s… read more.
I’ve been wondering about the advantage of book trailers in actually selling more books. Do they work? I sure can’t tell. It seems that sales are down all across the board these days and that’s not a big surprise. You know, crappy economy and all. Still, one has to wonder if the little snippets gleaned the… read more.
It all started with the House on Haunted Hill. Oh, I’m not talking about the remake with the fantastic rendition of “Sweet Dreams” by Marilyn Manson. No, I’m talking about the original that I watched with morbid fascination when I was but a young child. Scared the crap out of me and I proceeded to… read more.
So tomorrow starts the fun over at Dayana Knight’s blog, www.dayanaknight.blogspot.com. Come on by and join in the fun. Yours truly is tomorrow’s guest and I will be giving away a little gift. Dayana has special guests all month long to celebrate the favorite month of those of us who both read and write in… read more.
So here I am at the Emerald City Writers Conference and it couldn’t be a more beautiful day. Coming across Snoqualmie Pass with the sun shining and the sky clear — it just doesn’t get any better. So now, I have to gear up for my workshop, EVIL 101! Oh yeah…one of my favorite subjects. … read more.
So…when you’ve earned a Master’s Degree in 19th century Gothic literature it seems a no-brainer that at some point a book with a vampire must be done. And now–it is. NECURATUL 3: BLOOD SECRETS is the third book in the series and is available today. Follow Anima Mundi hunters, Cat Lohr and Dambray Gardner as… read more.
Yes, at long last I’ve written of the ever popular Dracula — in my own warped style of course. I’m particularly fond of my series with Loose Id (www.loose-id.com) and the band of evil hunters known as the Anima Mundi. I started book one on the trail of the infamous Blood Countess, Elizabeth Bathory. Book… read more.
Isn’t it? Or, is it just me. It seems like Falco and I just did the Parade of Paws and yet it’s now over a month later. I am woefully behind on my posts. The time just slipped by. Of course, the summer seems to be doing much the same. Soon, it will be time… read more.
