As of this writing, I'm six thousand words into the Bloodlines short story I'm writing, Zombie Confidential. This is a Sam Ridgeway solo adventure that takes place four weeks after the events of Zombie Love.
The plot was an seedling of an idea for the third book in the series, but I realized early on it didn't lend enough to the overall structure of the Bloodlines saga. However, it was an idea that just wouldn't let go.
In fact, DH pointed out that Sam was too comfortable dealing with a ghost in Amish, Vamps & Thieves when her only previous experience was the seance in Zombie Love. I knew then that this pivotal story involving a dead movie star needed to be told.
As soon as the story is completed and edited, I plan on posting it for free through the usual e-book channels as well as on this blog, hopefully by the end of May. I have to tell you that after two and a half years, it's a lot of fun slipping back into Sam's head.
