We have officially had over two months of rain here. There’s been one or two isolated days with no rain (I think) but aside from that, just rain. Which is actually okay by me, as it hasn’t been hot.
I have been fairly absent from the blogosphere since Friday. First I had to go get my Potter book, of course. Then stay up half the night reading it. Then finish it Saturday. Then absorb, etc. Frankly, my head has been so full of Potter lately I’m amazed I’ve gotten anything done.
But I have! I started my fifth Chapter One on the demons sequel, and it’s finally, I think, acceptable. Better than acceptable, even, I hope. I’m almost done with Chapter Two as well, so yay me! So that’s where I’ve been. Reading/thinking about Harry, or working.
Did anyone else read Harry?
The first reviews for Blood Will Tell are starting to trickle in. Two Lips Reviews (No, I didn’t pay for a review, and they’ve discontinued that policy–I think they honestly believed they were doing something nice) gave the book Five Kisses and said:
December Quinn has written a story with sizzling hot sex, explosive action and a riveting plot. Ms Quinn makes her hero sexy and confident, and her heroine strong and independent. This book has just the right mix and you never know what is going to happen next. You don’t want to miss Blood Will Tell; get your copy today.
(Entire review here).
Mrs. Giggles gave the book a 78; she wasn’t crazy about the story itself but liked the characters well enough, so that makes me happy. At least she didn’t think they were morons! That one is here.
ALSO–I have exciting news!
My series on publishers is about to take a really cool turn–I have several interviews lined up for August!
On Friday I’m going to open a post for questions, so start thinking. What about publishing would you like to ask:
Raelene Gorlinsky, Publisher, Ellora’s Cave
Tina Burns, Acquisitions Director, Liquid Silver Books
Treva Harte, Co-owner and Editor-in-Chief, Loose-Id
Angela James, Executive Editor, Samhain Publishing
These are all fabulous, extremely well-informed ladies, and they’re going to be here to help YOU, so please, do start thinking. Here’s your chance!
(Note: if possible, I’d like to keep the questions publishing-related, rather than “What are you looking for”. You can find that information in several places already, and I’m sure they’ve heard it a lot. But please, anything you have about publishing, about how they view the industry, their take on the atmosphere these days, things they are most proud of with their companies, that sort of thing.)
