Oooh more vampires!

Last week was a complete whirlwind of fun fun fun. Raven from RAH (yes, Raven! hehe) posted our chat over at the forums, if you'd like to check it out. I've been trying to contact some folks who may be interested in the book and the grab contest which is completely open and enter-able...that's not even a word but it works int this particular situation. ;-)

This Sunday I actually rested...Gasp! Shock! Weird because I'm usually doing some kind of work but last night I got completely hooked on Blood Ties the Lifetime show based on Tanya Huff's Vicky Nelson PI books. The show is rather awesome and I have no idea why it took me this long to catch onto it, but I am seriously hooked. I've been having a marathon watching the first season back to back with no commercials. Ahh gotta love the internet tv viewing. If you like cop shows with a slash of the occult, definitely check it out on the Lifetime site. If you're a fan of vampires, particularly sexy, shoulder length scraggly haired ones, it might be right up your alley. ;-)

On the book front, I finally got Seressia Glass's new book Dream of Shadows which I have been eagerly waiting for. Once I finish with Clare Dargin's Cold Warriors (great military SF romance ebook!) I'm thinking about diving into Dream of Shadows. Still in the queue is Sheryl Nantus's The Second Line and Murdoch Hughes's The Seattle Barista Killer, a vampire and werewolf novel respectively. I'm pretty happy to see the range of paranormal novels out because I grew up reading and watching lots of entertainment with this kind of subject matter.

On the writing front, next month is NaNoWriMo and I can't wait to dive in. I'm really pondering using Cimmerian Girl as my NaNo Novel (bwah!) since so many possibilities are swimming around for the end of the arc that's been building.

Either way, I can't wait!

Never too early to get ready for the rush to NANO. I'm getting all those pesky chores done: birthday cards readied for the mail, haircut, food stores readied, frozen meals made up, bills will be paid on the 30th, emails to family members not to bug with unnecessary calls between certain hours, grass cut, weeds pulled, toenails clipped, anti-vampire spray sprayed (don't need the interruptions).

Write hardy; write long.

How true that is! And you can't leave home without the anti-vamp spray... unless they are yummy. ;-)

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?
