Book news!

Oh, and  have to spill! "Pretty Death" is coming out Summer 2011, and then my Paranormal Erotic Romance, "Soul of Desire," will be coming out on its heels in the early Fall of 2011. That will be followed up by a short story in a new anthology in December 2011!

Website, Website, on the Wall...

Okay, trying to make the site functional and useful, as well as shiny and, delicious! My wonderful life-long crush is helping me put this together in his (ehem) spare time. I have been given tasks, as well as a timeline (eeek!) to get htings accomplished if I want them in order before the Lori Foster Reader and Author Get Together 2011. I'm running on all cylinders, hoping to get this done in time, and I have promised many favors to my webmaster if things are in order by then!
Let me know what you think about my work in progress!

Maya, Maya Everywhere

So, I know there has been a tremendous upswing in stories related to the Mayan End of the World in 2012.  Even though it's not an "End of Days" story-line, my novel for Bonaparte Press, "Pretty Death," has Mayan Mythology.  I figured as an ex-pat Angeleno, what better mythology would work in Los Angeles?

What are some typical associations you  make when you think of Mayan myths?
I researched this waaaaay too much, and still took some liberties, but I hope it makes for an interesting read!

This is Just to Say...

(Sure, I ripped off William Carlos Williams, so sue me!)
Read Lynn Carmer's newest book from Bonaparte Press (! It's titled "Just Don't Go" and it's great!  I laughed out loud at Tiny's antics and Tess' goof ups! And Kade...yum! Lynn's got such a great comedic voice in this story. You should all go and shamelessly buy multiple copies of her current novel, and while you're at it, buy the ones previous to it as well.
Yes, she's a friend and a fellow "Bonapartian" but she's also a good author! I've got all her stuff on my Kindle, and therefore you should too.
</shameless attempt at hypnosis>
Go, Lynn!

Bright and Shiny...

"Chimney falls and lovers blaze,
I thought that I was young..
Now I've freezing hands and bloodless veins
As numb as I've become...
How will you know if you found me at last?
'Cause I'll be the one, be the one, be the one, 
With my heart in my lap.
I'm so tired, I'm so tired.
I wish I was the moon tonight..."

I've been listening to Neko Case, and there is something incredible about her voice. It is so unique, so vibrant and enchanting. Each changing pitch is evocative and her lyrics... DAMN! I am so envious of a talent that can pull you right into her world and twist you so viscerally.

So this is how I came to this Blog. The voices inside (no, not the kind that men in little white coats come after you for) have been clamoring, and bit by slow bit I've placed their stories on paper. I've tried to make each one true to his or her story, and hope that you enjoy coming along for the ride.

For now, I'll sit back, play some Neko Case, and relax now that book number one is done and on its way.

Soon I'll wait with bated breath to see if you like it, and "I'll be the one, be the one, be the one with my heart in my lap."

Now to sleep, and dream of resolutions to plot bunnies.
