UV III Update

Hi blog family. I've been MIA for a bit dealing with a horrid toothache and an impending writing deadline (more than one, actually). My root canal has already been scheduled and I've been quite productive with my writing projects.

My Beta reader looked at me with a grin yesterday and said, "I hate you. This is now my new favorite book after WOS." She is referring to the Urban Vampire series which she had never read in fear that it would be the typical Vampire horror story. In fact, it is more on the humorous side, ALOT on the sexy side, and zero scary. There is, however, a shit-ton of suspense and action.

UV is my opportunity to write that kick-ass female character that follows her own course regardless of whether the 'norm' agrees or disagrees. This is taking me back to my blaxploitation roots when I watched Pam Grier as Coffy put razor blades in her 'fro because she knew when she got in a street fight some woman was going to go for her hair and start pulling. LOVE IT! Want to know a secret? I love the fact that a hero can also make mistakes and get fucked up. If a hero always prevails than its boring. Remember when Coffy got caught by the bad guys and they kicked her ass? Yep, heros do get an asskicking too! A hero just knows how to get back up afterwards...

So, anyways, that is where I've been for the last few days (and where I will continue to be for a while longer). I wanted UV released at around Thanksgiving but that is doubtful. I still go to my first job daily, punch walls due to my tooth ache, have snuggle time with boyfriend, giving my baby girl her Mom-telephone-time, and creating that kick-ass character that I love. It's juggling but I'm still here (sleep just got kicked to the curb so that I could write this). Accept my sincere apologies if I've not been prompt in reading my messages or responding. I do LOVE hearing from my readers and FB friends! Even when I'm busy--I'm busy with hopes that you will enjoy my efforts and when you write me I know that I am on the right track! Hopefully I will see you soon.
