So…first up, I’m working on a Valentine’s Day story for the fans of Penumbra. Sade and Sinjen. It’ll be “short.” And it will be exclusive. You have to be subscribed to my newsletter to get the secret code to go read it. Trust me, you’ll want to. So if you haven’t already, go click over there on the sidebar and sign up. I don’t send newsletters out all the time so it’s not like I spam folks.
TV. Oh My Freaking GOD!!!!! I ❤ LUCIFER so much. For many reasons. I'm excited it's back on tonight. The show is on regular Fox. Lucifer, yes THAT Lucifer, is bored in Hell so he takes a vacation. Here's the blurb from Fox's site:
Based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, this series follows Lucifer, the original fallen angel, who has become dissatisfied with his life in hell. After abandoning his throne and retiring to Los Angeles, Lucifer indulges in his favorite things (women, wine and song) — until a murder takes place outside of his upscale nightclub. For the first time in billions of years, the murder awakens something unfamiliar in Lucifier’s soul that is eerily similar to compassion and sympathy. Lucifer is faced with another surprise when he meets an intriguing homicide detective named Chloe, who appears to possess an inherent goodness — unlike the worst of humanity, to which he is accustomed. Suddenly, Lucifer starts to wonder if there is hope for his soul.
Not only is Chloe good, she has an inherent immunity to Lucifer’s powers. This is a series and character I wish I’d imagined first. Neil Gaiman and others beat me to it. Lots of critics didn’t like it. Tough. I loved it like damn and whoah and really hoping Episode 2 is just as good.
I also started clearing the DVR. OUTLANDER. Watched the first episode of Season 2. Wow. That’s all I’ll say.
READING: Contest reads are done for now. I listened to the first two books in Kit Rocha’s dark-and-dirty Beyond series. Now I want to reread/listen to them all. Maybe I’ll use exercise as an excuse. We’ll see. In the meantime, the new IN DEATH book, BROTHERHOOD IN DEATH drops tonight. There’s a couple of other books waiting on the Kindle but I can’t think of them off the top of my head. I also did a reread/lisen of the first 3 Demonica books by Larissa Ione after I bought the ebooks on sale and got a discount on the audio books, too. Fun times.
WRITING: Moving forward with MOONSTRUCK: LIES. I got to resurrect one of my favorite scenes EVER, one that had to be cut from WOLF MOON. It’s a scene in Nate’s POV and it still makes me tear up and get pissed at the world all at the same time. Hoping to have it ready for release by early March, mid-March at the latest. Also working on Hollywood’s story, which I’ve decided is the next Nightrider book. It’s shorter, so will be out soon after LIES. Then it’s on to the next Hard Target and Penumbra, with Red Dirt books slotted in once I have a new contract.
LIFE: The weather is driving my sinuses crazy. I’m still not 100% well from all the winter crud. *sigh* Stormageddon visits two evenings a week while his dad is at baseball practice and his mom is working late. I wish I had the little dickens’s energy.
Aaaannndddd…I think that just about sums it up for me. What about y’all? What have you been up to?
