Some of the Brainstormers at Lunch

Esri took the photo of Robert, me and Betsy. Then the waiter took the one with the four of us. Margaritas, beer and Mexican food. What could be better?

The Book Journey

My editor tells me The Vampire Shrink is now with the copy editor and I should be getting the edits by the first of May. We've been emailing about some plot points and talking about Devereux's age and history. It's so much fun to brainstorm about this series I love. I'm working on book 2, making changes based on the new information in book 1. We're going to re-title book 2, so I'm looking for more titles that combine something bloody/vampiric with something psychological. All suggestions appreciated because they trigger ideas!

Book 1 is set to release in the UK on September 1, 2011. Wouldn't it be awesome if I could fly over to London for promo? (hint, hint)

She also said she got "lots of requests" from foreign pubs at the London Book Fair to read book 1. Yay!

Can't wait to see the cover art!

Here are photos of the real place in Denver that inspired Devereux's club, The Crypt.

Update from the London Book Fair

I got an email yesterday from my editor who has been at the London Book Fair for days already. She lives in London and said the fair business starts earlier every year. She'll be talking to foreign pubs about my books and hopefully there will be worldwide editions of all three novels. She'll get back in touch probably next week. We also talked about future possibilities for some Kismet short stories/novellas. She said the UK version of THE VAMPIRE SHRINK is slated to be released this September, along with e-versions. The second book [which will be re-titled] should follow about 9 months or so later. I'm madly updating the second book and brainstorming more plot ideas for the third book. I look forward to seeing the cover art for book 1! Anything you'd like to see happen to/with Kismet in book 3? What are you imagining?
