|Dear All! |
Happy Halloween! I hope you have some delightfully spooky but socially distanced fun lined up for tonight. I will be setting out trays of candy on my porch in preparation for what I expect might be hordes of trick-or-treaters. I live in a hundred-year-old neighborhood with small lawns and big sidewalks, so we normally get a lot of kids from all over town. It’s fun–except for my dogs, who are in a constant state of nerves as they try to protect the house from the monstrous intruders. Hopefully this year things will be a little less scary for them.
On the book front, I just finished proofing the paperback of Trigger Warning. I need to submit a few changes, get a new proof copy, check that, and then hopefully it will exist in beautiful paperback form! I am doing it through Draft2Digital’s print program, which is currently in beta. This means everything is proceeding very slowly, but despite a few minor issues the book looks gorgeous, and I can’t wait to get all my books out in print. When I do, you will be the first to know 🙂
I have also been having fun creating a playlist on Spotify for the Doctor Rowena Halley series. If you’d like to check it out, you can find it here. It’s got a broad mix of songs. Most of them are from Honor Court, but I threw in “Get Off On the Pain” by Gary Allan, which John, Rowena’s brother mentions in Permanent Position. Then I have “Girls Like Girls,” Hayley Kiyoko’s lesbian-power anthem, which Mel has playing in her Jeep during a high-tension scene in Honor Court. There’s also “Marching Bands of Manhattan” by Death Cab for Cutie, which plays during another car-related scene, Leonard Cohen’s classic “Anthem,” which Rowena and Alex reference during a tense time in their relationship, and Snow Patrol’s epic song trilogy “The Lightning Strike,” which plays during their reconciliation.
Here’s the link to the playlist again if you want to check it out.
And one final fun thing to check out: Dead Silent, an 18-book box by a group of bestselling thriller authors, is currently available for preorder for just 99c.
|So that’s about it for this week. Have a safe and spooky Halloween, and happy reading!|
