Fun With Friends
Yesterday I wrote about being in “the lull” between different stages of the book project—and one great thing about that lull is that it also provides an opportunity to catch up with writing friends and what they’re doing. So a few weeks back I posted as a guest in Nicole Murphy’s “Dreams and Fulfilment” series celebrating the launch of Rogue Gadda, the third and final novel in her Dreams of Asarlai series. And was also delighted to have Nicole as a guest here on “…Anything, Really” talking about “The Challenge.”
Having a little time in hand also means that I have the opportunity to read other writers’ work, including works-in-progress. Once such work-in-progress is Ghost Hand (working title), my friend Ripley Patton’s first novel. I already know Ripley’s accomplished short story work—and the first draft of Ghost Hand did not disappoint. A paranormal YA, I thought the storyline was fresh, the pace good, and the characters interesting—a great start to a first book and I am now really looking forward to seeing the second draft.
And tomorrow, USA time, I am helping fellow Supernatural Underground author, Juliana Stone, celebrate the forthcoming launch of her latest paranormal romance novel, His Darkest Salvation, by giving away a copy of The Heir of Night. I think Merrie Destefano will also have a book up for giveaway—so head on over to Juliana’s site and check out the celebratory and giveaway action there.
