I would have never thought ComicCon would be the sort of place where a geeky author like myself could hang out and talk books with geeky readers. What was I thinking? (Apparently, I wasn’t.) But my friend and fellow author, Miranda Mayer, convinced me it was perfect. She was right!
I had a blast. Met so many amazing people—readers, writers, artists, cosplayers. Sold a few books. Gave out loads of bookmarks. And let’s just say I am now addicted to ComicCon. In fact I’m totally gutted I can’t attend Rose City ComicCon this year (Or Emerald City, or Vancouver FanExpo) because of other commitments, but…there are other things on the horizon. Stay tuned!
I haven’t done a Supernatural Saturday in AGES. Seriously, over a year. So rather than bore you with my ranting about whatever supernatural creature is on my mind, I’m giving you this:
You know I only do this because I love you, right? ;)
If you enjoyed that, you should come follow me on Tumblr. That’s another thing I joined ages ago but didn’t do anything with. I am now randomly posting things that make no sense. They’re just things I like. For instance, delicious Regency gentlemen. And amusing memes.
(I’m also on Pinterest if you don’t mind your feed being cluttered with pins of chocolate cake and hot British men.)
If you’re wondering what I’m up to, I’m writing like mad trying to get the next thing out and into your hot little hands. Right now I’m working on two books at a time. I’m at the 55% mark for A Rage of Angels (Think Firefly meets CSI with a splash of romance and Ancient Aliens) and almost 70% on my hilarious new contemporary romcom (Think London, coffee, cupcakes, and Tom Hiddleston… mostly because I just like Tom Hiddleston.)
Join in the fun TODAY at 4pm Pacific (7pm Eastern). Three hours of games, giveaways, and random shenanigans to celebrate the release of my book, Kissed by Ice, and Tara West’s hilarious paranormal romantic comedy, Divine and Dateless.
Today’s video made me giggle like a lunatic. Mostly because of my own obsessive collecting of paper towels and toilet paper. I figure in a zombie apocalypse, this stuff gonna be worth it’s weight in, um, ammo.
Note to self: start clipping coupons for Bounty, STAT!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by for a visit and to let Norah Wilson and myself know who you think is the perfect (and sexy) hero. Got a lot of votes for Daniel Craig. :-)
Bet that made you smile. I know it did me! :-) (By the way, if you want that screensaver, click on the pic and you can get a shiny new one all to yourself.)
