One Month And Counting

I've been very naughty about keeping up on my blog. I thought I'd wait until I had the cover art for "Undead in the City" before I wrote again, but that might still take a while. So, I'll blather here a bit in the meantime. The novella is scheduled to be released on May 15, 2007.

I've been watching "Blood Ties" on Lifetime TV -- the series based on Tanya Huff's books. I'm such a vampire fan, that I usually like most grown-up, relationship/character-focused vamp stories. I'm still enjoying the show, but I wish Henry was a bit more interesting. More vampiric. More magnetic. More dangerous. I understand the need to keep the tension building between the three charactes in the love triangle, but I'd appreciate more information about why the female character is commitment phobic. Hey, I'da been jumping on both those guys long before this point.

What do you think about Blood Ties? Here's a little John DeSalvo eye-candy, just for the pleasure of it.

I love Blood Ties. And I such a Henry/Vicki shipper fan.

Thanks so much, Anya. I look forward to the release of "Undead in the City." I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

If my memory serves me correctly, in the books I think Vicki's father abandoned her and her mom when she was young. Or maybe he died. Either way, the whole not having the "father-figure" around gave her major issues. Not that I would let that stop me from jumping Henry, which she does in the books, by the way. And Mike...though not at the same time...LOL.

By the way, Undead in the City looks to be a good read!

Thanks so much, Mippy! I'm partial to "Undead in the City" because it feels somewhat autobiographical.

I've only read one book in Tanya Huff's Vickie/Henry/Mike series so far. My library only had the last book, so I cut to the chase!!

I'm still enjoying the TV show, but I like the parts best where Henry is less like the vampire-next-door and more dangerous. He got to shine a bit more in the 2-part story about the vampire hunter who snagged him, thanks to Mike. I've also noticed they're giving the young actress with the colorful wardrobe more air time. Wonder where that's going?
