About the death threats. The demons in my life are nothing if not loving.
Anyway, those of you not trapped on my mailing list may have missed the glad tidings that THE HELL YOU SAY is back in print -- and in ebook format.
The third novel in the Adrien English series finds the "ill-starred and bookish" mystery writer and bookseller battling demons--maybe literally. After bookstore clerk Angus flees following terrifying death threats, Adrien must contend with a mysterious Satanic cult, a hot and handsome university professor, and his on-again/off-again relationship with closeted LAPD Homicide Detective Jake Riordan.
And, oh, yes, murder...
My editor and publishers have been putting together a schedule for next year, so the good news is that I'll soon have some firm dates for the numerous projects listed on my website. The baddish news is that Adrien Four AKA Death of a Pirate King has been pushed back to August. But it will be a better book for it, I promise you.
And, also in the good news category, my releases next year will be spread out more evenly, so there won't be two and three things releasing in a month -- usually. That makes it easier on you (and me).
And not only have I apparently not finished Christmas shopping, I can't find any damn tinsel for the tree. I'm serious. I stopped at three places last night. NO ONE has tinsel. What's up with that? Is there some frigging tinsel shortage?
And since I'm giving into my inner Grinch, may I just say that I hate wrapping presents?
Ah. This is the danger of an online journal. Before long I'll be complaining about all kinds of wacko things, and they'll live forever in infamy, and in fact, they're really no more serious a complaint than the thoughts that go through my mind when someone cuts me off in the mall parking lot. (Which, while getting an "R" for violence, only amounts to a few seconds of screen time.)
So lemme focus on some happy holidays thoughts. Favorite Christmas CD anyone? Favorite holiday beverage? Best moment of the holiday season thus far?
