Update on Bloodlines

I got Zombie Goddess back from my beta reader. There were a few specific things that needed fixed, which I worked on over the weekend.

The last thing I can't address without fundamentally changing the nature of the novel. If you've been reading the Bloodlines series, you know there's a lot of action in my stories, but not everything turned into a major physical battle.

In fact, I thought the foreshadowing I put in Blood Sacrifice regarding Tiffany and Siobhan's efforts to hammer out a treaty between the vampires and the sidhe would have been more obvious. Maybe I was too subtle. Or maybe this is me as the writer looking at the Bloodlines series as a story in the whole.

That's not to say there aren't any conflicts in this novel, but the majority aren't physical. And there are gross, bloody bodies. Eventually. *smile*

Frankly, Zombie Goddess is the proverbially quiet before the storm. I close out a LOT of hanging story threads, but it sets up the last three novels. Readers will either love it or hate it.

I hope they love it.

Just need to finish those pesky edits. . .
