I've been locked away for an entire month editing my book. Obsessively focused on the task at hand means I've been in all work no play mode. It freaked a lot of people out because I'm a Google Whore and Social Media Butterfly so going off-line cold turkey forced a lot of peeps to face their Internet addiction to my blog (and inadvertently generated a massive amount of e-mail regarding what's going on in my backyard - LOL).
Yes, I missed you guys madly (and will do a blog answering most of your Life With Wee People e-mails). I lurked silently when I cheated from the self-imposed ban because this I wanna be a author thing is a serious goal requiring an amazing amount of concentration. I love my virtual home but in order for me to meet my deadlines I had to stay away from Club Chaos long enough to keep my writing team happy. Now I have to please my beta readers and editor... (happy sigh)
I formed a brand new corporation with one million shares. What we're going to do with them has kept me busy (and a wee bit stressed - silly grin). Luckily for me I earned my break from writing/organize, then run a new corporation-hell and am starting my vacation so I can enjoy the 16 city Kim Harrison book tour for A Perfect Blood.
If you want to know what all the Kimaholic excitement is about read the first five chapters of A Perfect Blood here. By the time you finish them you'll be stalking Amazon waiting for the book to download because the 9AM wait for Barnes & Noble will just be too damn painful (LOL). I have a four pack of Starbucks to keep me wired and awake for tonight's amazing speed read. Yup. There will be a Book Club Bookie review when I'm done. I'm staring at my Kindle app waiting for my Android to load. I have no control when the damn thing will release so I'm a bookaholic twitching in electronic withdrawal drooling in anticipation for the wild ride to come. ;-)
If you want the A Perfect Blood wallpper click here. It is very cool. :-)
The best part about being a die hard Kim Harrison fan? Chicka never disappoints when it comes to blowing your paranormal loving mind and she keeps getting better... Check out Pale Demon while you wait for your electronic pre-order to materialize. If you want to be in Hardcover Heaven The Hollow Insider and Blood Work are simply gorgeous... If you're serious about discovering the wonderful world of The Hollows you should start at the beginning and read them in order. I've read them all multiple times because each time I make a run through I learn something new about the way her mind works. She's bloody brilliant regarding plotting and pacing. It's a fun series to read and I'm soooo into irony and snarky dialog by kick a$$ sexy characters. I'm a very happy Kim Harrison addict (and finally figured out how to draw pixies - oh joy! - new cartoons coming to a blog post near you - LOL). She's not just a great writer, Kim is also a good sport when it comes to letting fans play in The Kim-Stream.
P.S. Hi Jesse! Hi Laura! I will call you two tomorrow. If you see a 321 area code that would be me. Pick up (LOL). Time to go log into Facebook and freak 'em out (evil grin). Feels good to be home. ;-)
