A New Blog Post for a New Website

The new website has arrived, and it is snazzy. It was designed by Rachel Silberman in all of about an hour, so if you’re looking for great design work done kindly and speedily you need look no farther than her.

What’s been going on? Lots I guess, but none of it that interesting. Back from Paris and moved into our new house. Battled bed bugs in said new house and emerged victorious. Victorious! If you’re imagining me with my head on Schwarzenegger’s body carrying a flamethrower with a nub cigar between my teeth, well, that’s pretty much how it was. Kendare Blake kills bugs dead. Or the Orkin guy does. Whatever.

In writing world I’m working on Secret Project 3B, which you may hear about soon, or later, or never. That was vague, but true. It’s a witch book, I’ll say that much. I also finished an Athena short story, to be released for free near the pub of Mortal Gods. It’s called “When Gods and Vampires Roamed Miami.” Speaking of Mortal Gods, you can totally pre-order it now if you like. Have I mentioned that already? Apologies. I’ll mention it more. Part of the gig.

This weekend I’m at Klindt’s in The Dalles, Oregon with a ton of excellent authors, hanging most of the day for their 4th Annual YA Book Fest. It’s fun. There’s food, and entertainment, and it’s laid back enough so we can chat for more than thirty seconds in a signing line, which I always enjoy. Come on out! I’ll be at a table with April Genevieve Tucholke and her fab book Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I will put it in your bag. Don’t think I won’t. You’ll thank me for it later.

Watched the Evil Dead remake. My favorite part of any possession movie is the hilarious and adorable possession voice. “You’re gonna die down here bitch!” Am I? Am I really? Or am I about to be invited into the Lollipop Guild? I think you know.

And now, for a list of books I’ve read lately and blurbed and which I think you should also read and blurb:

  • COMPULSION by Martina Boone – steamy Southern secrets and feuds! You’re gonna want it.
  • THE NIGHT HOUSE by Rachel Tafoya – Vampire brothels for the win!
  • FIREBUG by Lish McBride – want to traverse the underworld of magical creatures? Of course you do.
  • MARY: The Summoning by Hillary Monahan – a very scary Bloody Mary ghost story. It made me want to play. Any takers with dark bathrooms?
  • DUPLICITY by N.K. Traver – Tron meets mirror tricks = a thrilling creepfest!

And that’s it for now. Word to your mother.

    Love the new look! So beautiful. I can’t believe it took such a small amount of time to make. I am thrilled to see you enjoyed Firebug since I have it on my TBR pile now. Yay! Bedbugs are my biggest fear. I actually fear library books now that I read that article saying they can hide out (and have been found) in library books. aaaahh. Besides the unwanted visitors I hope the new house is awesome šŸ™‚

      I hope you really like Firebug! I loved Ezra the were-fox. Bedbugs are horrible, but luckily we discovered them while our new place was mostly vacant so treatment was easy. And it has made me more conscious of throwing down my bags when I travel!

    I feel you moved here so I would use my real name. HA. I AM STAYING BEEEEEEJ. If only because you’re nice to beeeeej.

    And I already pre ordered Mortal Gods. Duh.

      It is much easier to be nice to beeeeej. How can you be mean to beeeeej? That just wouldn’t be right. Seriously though, thank you very much for doing me a solid and pre ordering. My publisher loves those pre orders!

    Yuck! Bedbugs are the worst! My husband works in pest control, and he deals with them all the time, so I’m always on high alert for them. We’ve been lucky, but I don’t want to jinx myself. šŸ™ Love the new look and congrats on the new digs. I’ve got Compulsion, Firebug, and Mary in my possession, so I’ll be moving those up the ole TBR thanks to your recommendations. BtDatDBS is amazing and I can’t wait to start that sequel…wish I could see you both, but I think you’re coming to a library near me soon, so at least I might be able to make that and meet you again. šŸ™‚

      EEk, yes, don’t jinx yourself. They are muy muy unpleasant. Though at least your hubs would know how to get rid of them ASAP. Mine didn’t believe me about what they were until I did a bug safari and captured a bunch. Really hope you like Compulsion, Firebug and Mary! Should make for a nice variety in reading. Hope to see you again soon! Which library is near you?
