All I want to do today is to sit here and write my book. Most of the stuff I absolutely have to do today have nothing to do with writing. Oy.
Quote of the yesterday, from Magic Shifts:
“Can’t you just kill it with fire?” Mrs. Oswald asked.
I stuffed the tick’s legs into the large hazmat body bag. “Unfortunately, we can’t. That would be illegal. All magic hazmat has to be surrendered to Biohazard, so they can quarantine it.”
“What do you mean quarantine?” Mrs. Oswald asked.
“They’ll keep the corpse on ice for a few days to see if it tries to evolve into something else after death.”
“And then?” Mrs Oswald asked.
“Then they’ll kill it with fire,” I told her.
Ace asked very nicely if we would turn on the Ask the Author feature on Goodreads, which we did. (I have bookmarked the dashboard and I am heroically resisting looking at anything but dashboard.) So here is a link to questions already answered. You’re welcome to ask a question. I promise to answer honestly. Unfortunately, sometimes the answer will be “I don’t know.”
Jeaniene Frost is having an ARC giveaway for her new book, BEAUTIFUL ASHES. This is not my book, and I have no relationship with Harlequin, so I am completely free to say this: the cover has nothing to do with the contents. I’ve read the book. The book is all kick-ass, and demonic evil, and coming of-age love story. It has prehistoric lizard hounds in it. The cover is a random girl in the woods. What? Come on, Harlequin.
BURN FOR ME has ran through the Amazon Vine program, so there are early reviews. I found out this fact when I innocently went to Amazon for a buy link to NIGHT SHIFT. Here is a link to early reviews. Spoiler: people are surprised it’s not “porn.” (Why would it be porn? O_o.) It’s a slow burn, with instant chemistry, so there are a few hot scenes, but the relationship builds over the course of three books. Because we write slow burn well and we like to torture you. (Actually, it’s because I don’t like insta-love trope.)
Guys, please let me know if you’ve settled on meet and greet locations for the tour. We are getting conflicting suggestions for Seattle and Portland. Here is the link to the list of tour locations. Please feel free to use the comment section of this post to organize.
