New Kismet Book #2: Blood Therapy

(This is not my cover. It's just a photo. Too bad they couldn't do a better job with the blood!) I think I've got a handle on the broad outline for the new book #2, tentatively called Blood Therapy (I know that was going to be the title of book #3, but it seemed appropriate for this book. The previous book #2, formerly called Dark Harvest, will come out later in the series, rewritten/expanded, with a new name.).

It's actually a blast to be able to slow things down, and go back to my original ideas for the series. As important as the romance elements are to the books -- and Devereux will always be one of the major players -- it's really Kismet's story. Her transformation. Her life in the surreal world of vampires. She'll have lots of experiences of all kinds. This new book #2 will take place about 2 months after the end of The Vampire Shrink. I'm kicking my own butt daily to keep on a schedule, to be disciplined enough to write a certain number of words everyday, even if it's after I crawl home from my day job. I appreciate all the crit partners who help hold my nose to the grindstone.

The folks at Jo Fletcher Books/Quercus are working madly on the cover for the UK version of The Vampire Shrink. I'll post it as soon as I have it!

I'm going to have a huge contest to celebrate the release of the UK version of the updated The Vampire Shrink this September. Then I'll have another contest when I find out the release date for the North American version. Stay tuned for details.

Think I'd be more impressed with the picture if the red didn't look like finger nail polish.

Good luck in meeting your writing goals.

LOL, Kay. You're right about the fingernail polish. But if we can look past that . . . grin. Thanks for the good words.

Good luck with your writing goals. I'm inclined to think someone ate a messy hamburger to celebrate Memorial day:-)

Blood doesn't stain that way on your fingers. So fake! Good luck on the book btw.

I would have liked this with no blood, I think. Or maybe as a drawn picture...
