More Zombies

Zombie Confidential is now available for FREE at Barnes & Noble!

Blood Lines Will Experience a Partial Eclipse

As I said in the previous post Super July, I've set aside the entire month to crank out the first draft of Blood Sacrifice. Therefore, it will be a little quieter at Blood Lines than my usual wont.

That isn't to say I won't be posting at all.

Check back here on Sunday, July 1st. Smashwords is holding its annual July Summer/Winter sale, and three of my books will be featured!

Super July

Why is July so super?

I've set it aside to complete the first draft of Blood Sacrifice.

My original outline for this book got thrown out the window after seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull back in 2008. If you really want to read about the whole fiasco, go to my writing blog. I still think Steven Spielberg owes me one. *grin*

So last summer, my friend, the lovely Jody Payne, helped me hammer out a new plot. Instead of Mexico, we went further south. Jody and her family spent a great deal of time in Peru, so she had some excellent ideas involving local concepts and Incan deities.

Unfortunately, I didn't get much new writing done last summer since I took on a project for hire. By the time that project finished, homeschooling and crazy Christmas retail season was upon me, both of which ate my brain.

But it's summer, I'm back in the writing saddle, and my Starbucks card is loaded and ready to roll!

Want some hints about the story?

Blood Sacrifice is Alex and Phillippa's book. It will fill in the blanks about what split them up and how they get back together. It won't be an easy path for Alex. Especially when Phil's dad takes a shine to Alex and "helps" him woo her. And nothing spells disaster like a war god trying to fix your love life! Add in a pissed off Incan god of death and an apocalyptic cult, and our poor Texas vampire has his hands full.

See y'all on the other side of July!

Kind Words Go a Long Way

Smashwords threw a fit since I put an approximate page count in my description for ZOMBIE CONFIDENTIAL. I added the page count because I wanted to make it absolutely clear to my readers that this was a short story.

Anyway, when I went to the Dashboard to change ZC's description, I was delighted to find a a 5-star rating from Francine Forte:

Wow! I loved it. A paranormal mystery that was fun, sad, heartwarming, and just a great read. Who knew I'd love a zombie heroine? Suzan Harden wrote it right. I highly recommend this story.

Folks, if you love a writer's story, let them know. Or better yet, let everyone else know. And thanks, Francine, for your kind words!

Just a reminder: ZOMBIE CONFIDENTIAL is still available for free from Smashwords. Or you can click here to read it online.

Once Smashwords actually starts distributing ZC to other retailers I'll post the info!
