I spent my three day weekend writing up all the posts for my Blog Book Tour for (get ready for shameless self-promotion here) my murder mystery MURDER FOR HIRE: The Peruvian Pigeon. By me. Dana Fredsti.
Google alert? Are you paying attention? Pingoat? Say you’re there!
I have not had such a focused period of writing for ages. It felt great, but dang me, my fingers hurt!
I’m saving my big thank you email till the end of my tour, but I just have to say that my blog hosts and their blogs are all awesome. Or is ‘awesome’ too late ’70s/early ’80s an expression? Oh well, too bad! ‘Cause they are. Please scroll down a post and check out the tour schedule, bookmark those blogs and visit them often!
I’m currently reading Smoke and Ashes by Tanya Huff. She writes urban fantasy/supernatural..er…not romance, but…well…okay, I don’t know what genre this is. But she’s now up there with Barbara Hambly as one of my favorite writers. The books are funny, horrific, smart, and just plain fun to read. My favorite line to date in reference to a character who’s a vampire (I’m paraphrasing here ’cause I left the book at work): ‘Henry wore his blandest expression; blood wouldn’t clot in his mouth.’ I laughed out loud when I read that. On the Muni. People moved away from me on the train.
I just finished Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter by Blaize Clement and give it two thumbs up for mystery afficianados and animal lovers alike. It’s easy to tell the author has spent a lot of time with dogs and cats and an equal amount of time honing her writing skills. Can’t wait to start the second one in the series!
Speaking of series… Time for me to get to work on MURDER FOR HIRE: The Big Snooze!
That is a great line. I guffawed myself.
Barbara Hambly is one of my favorite authors too. I lived very near New Orleans for about five years which is what made me pick one of her books up, then I was totally hooked.
The latest Tanya Huff series has several laugh out loud lines, like ‘waxy buildup of evil.’ I think this series even beats the Bloodlines series for me.
I really wish they’d make Barbara Hambly’s stuff into movies and series too…
I just started Blaize Clement’s third in the series last night. Sucks a person right in! You both are darn good at stringing those words together.
Well, thank you kindly, Dani! I’ll have to get the second one read so we can discuss ’em without you giving anything away!
Aha! I was confused for a moment but now I’ve figured out that Mr.Fabulous posted this morning earlier, or at least earlier than my arrival here. Good for you dearie.
Thank you, Maddy!!
