Magic Moments

I’m trying something new where the Penumbra Papers are concerned. (Not that I enjoy procrastinating or anything! Shhhhhhh….)

I thought I’d make “postcards” out of some of the memorable lines from the books. People can pin them on Pinterest. Share them on Facebook and Twitter and Google+. And hopefully, just enjoy them. Since THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC is off in the magical hands of the formatter, I thought I’d start with the opening to the story.

Black Magic Sade-ism1

There will be more as time goes by. And with any luck, it’ll be back in my hands by the end of the week and I can start figuring out how to upload it places besides Amazon. Anyway, welcome to the Penumbra Papers and the world of Sade Marquis. Her best friend turns furry. Her godfather is a master vampire. And her mother was once the mistress of Oberon, King of the Faerie Court. As Agent In Charge of the FBI’s MAGIC Unit, her life is full of things that go bump in the night.

Who had fun over the long weekend? Besides working, I’m reading Loreth Anne White’s PIECES OF YOU. It’s a taut romantic suspense set in a small Canadian ski resort. OMG! But back to work for me. SEASON OF THE WITCH waits for no writer! 😉

  1. Coolness! This world is so awesome I want to roll around in it. I can’t wait until That Ol’ Black Magic comes back so I can read it and I can’t wait to read Season of the Witch! =o)

    I don’t know how much fun it was, but I was a slacker this weekend for the most part. I did get some pre-work done on the suspense I’m getting ready to edit, so I know what to attack first when I jump into it. (Maybe today… I’m not promising anything.) I spent some time playing with my photo program to draw flowers in the new beds and to paint the house. I also read a lot. The last Vince Flynn – The Last Man – is pretty awesome and makes me wish even more that he hadn’t died in the middle of the next book. (Well, I wish he hadn’t died at all, but it’s even more tragic knowing he was working on a manuscript.)

      😆 I’m going to be a good little writer today and shut down the internet for the most part. I plan to get a looooong way through edits today. No playing around. Breaks only for coffee and the “aftereffects” of coffee. I’ve made my blog rounds and sorted my email. Now it’s time to dive into Sade’s world and roll around in it. I like doing that, too! ;:)

      Maybe the publisher will find someone to finish the MS for Mr. Flynn, though I always have mixed feelings about that. We’re losing some good ones lately. 😦

      As for the photo programs…love ’em but they are time sucks! Still… 😀

    I was a bad, bad girl and I’m sorry I was of no use to you Silver … Maybe I should have asked if there was a deadline before begging for a sneak peak ’cause I honestly thought the process took more time …
    What I can say is I am in love with Sade and her world – I love the many characters and how they interact with each other; it feels real and unforced. I will be first in line to buy a copy for my Kindle when TOBM comes out.
    And I’ll be holding my breath for SOTW after that !

      P’shaw! You were a big help, Ban! I needed gut reactions more than line-by-line stuff. And you gave me that. 😀 I’m glad you want more! That means I doing it right! (And “write” 😉 )
