Moonlight Vs Forever Knight

I checked out Moonlight last night and was a bit disappointed. I gave my complete thoughts here over at the Absolute Write Moonlight thread if you want to check it out. Sparks are flying with comparisons to Angel, Buffy, FK & Blood Ties. Ironically sparks are one of the things lacking within the show. I'll probably give it another shot just to see how the story is told next week but in the meantime, I'm going to slip FK in my Amazon shopping cart and rub my hands in anticipation to see one of my fave shows I grew up loving.

Check out this article from Associate's Content showing the two shows in comparison.

CBS New Fall TV Show: Moonlight Vs Forever Knight

Moonlight is a new television drama about a vampire detective that will be airing on CBS this Fall. Does the premise sound familiar? Let's see, a vampire detective show that's set in Canada and airing on CBS. And the main character's name is Mick (as opposed to Nick)? Ring any bells yet?

If this is giving you…

2 days to Moonlight

Okay technically 1 since it's tomorrow. But I like the sound of that. I may use it as a title one day...

So anyway, I decided to try out Moonlight after much back and forth and disappointment with new rehashed shows. I'm a HUGE Forever Knight fan and a passable viewing Angel and Buffy fan (don't kill me but I loved the movie better in all its campy glory). I figure why not give a try out to see the new version this Friday on CBS. The trailer looked kinda cool after all:

Here's Moonlight.

For all the Forever Knight fans and for all the folks who think I'm crazy and don't know what show I'm talking about, here's a fan made trailer that I think is pretty cool.

It's Sunday....wait, Sunday is gone...sigh

So, the calm tensity of evening is upon us once again on a weekend. My brain is starting to kick into high gear despite my resistance. I'm resisting because evening and night is supposed to be the 3 R's: a time of rest, reflection and renewal.

But try telling my brain that. :-P

I'm starting to move away from Before Dawn Breaks because (despite another resistance) I'm getting tooooo close to it and I need a breather!

But hey, I finally came up with a short blurb for the book! Woo hoo!

Once again Marauder Star (formerly titled Space Pirates) is inhabiting my mind. I've yo-yoed a bit on how to tell this story in its best form for a while and every time I come to a conclusion, I'm not quite sure. One thing I know is once this story has been told and presented to the world, it'll be a big sigh of relief because of all the figuring out and all the time it took!


Anyway, onto industry news I'd like to share.

NPR posted a great coverage of speculative fiction…

Did you ever write something...

that came so close to actual events that it ended up happening?

Alls I'm saying is this is tres freaky.....

A passage from the first chapter of CC:

"Blood clots and blood disorders affect more than 5 million people in the US alone. For a cleaner system, try Delanin, the leading non-prescription pill that targets blood cells for a cleaner flow through the entire body. Please read side effects carefully and consult your doctor for any possible allergic reactions. Brought to you by Dridan. Making a better future, today."

"Cleaner blood flow." Raven chuckled. "They'll make a pill for anything these days."

Cimmerian City is really happening! Ahh! LOL

Now if the sky starts darkening out the sun and turning orange, a new drug is introduced to "perfect the human body" and people start appearing with a huge thirst for blood, I'm getting on the first Offworld mission ship outta here!

It's been a crazy week so far and it's only Tuesday! Things have been put on turbo boost now that I am continuing full blast forward with the release of my book. As some of you may already know from my Cimmerian City blog and my mailing list, I've recently pulled my book from my previous publisher due to problems I couldn't foresee changing much in the future. I wish no ill will on them and only the best, but as an author I did have to consider my readers and I hated having to see the book pushed back so many times without a word on the release. Now that it's going with Lavender Isis, I can foresee the beginning of the series continuing with a blazing start!

I've been rea…

Remember that really awesome espresso book machine released in New York a few months ago? Well move over latte books, cause there's a new toy in town. Meet Jetrix, which enables simultaneous high-speed printing of an entire page of text. How high speed, you ask? Try 1,000 pages per minute! Read all about the Jetrix at Israel 21c.

Also if you ever wanted to check out the inner workings of the publishing industry from the eyes of a publisher: meet Jane Daniel. After going through the shocking ordeal of facing 2 lawsuits against her indie publishing company (one of which is the largest in history!), she is currently writing about her story and the indie world of publishing in a real time blog with chapters added from time to time. I've read a few chapters and I'm already hooked. I'm going to add a link to my blog reads and if you want t…

This looks really good

2 Oscar Winning Actors. 1 Awesome looking movie. Not to mention two of the cutest kids!
I really like that more bwwm IR movies are coming out where the couples are depicted with multidimensional characteristics. Normally the couple doesn't make it to the end or the movie ends before we can see the relationship continue to develop. I love Something New but I wish it was longer lol (or at least had a sequel).

Check out Halle Berry, David Duchovny and Benecio Del Toro in Things We Lost in the Fire.
