Back To The Land Of The Undead

The next book in Mary Janice Davidson's popular Undead series comes out on June 06, 2006. Undead And Unpopular takes us back into the world of reluctant vampire queen Betsy. It's been a year since Betsy died and rose from her grave. She has decided to mark the occasion by not drinking blood anymore. Of course, she hasn't yet spruced up the courage to tell her consort, Eric. To make matters worse, Eric seems to be showing no interest whatsoever in their upcoming wedding.

And if that wasn't bad enough, Betsy's house is overflowing with visiting vampires. And not just any vampires, the European sect who have not yet decided whether they support Betsy or not. So Betsy finds herself up to her eyeballs in vampire politics, dealing with her sister, the devil's daughter, avoiding her stepmom, and trying not to go crazy. Not so easy when blood withdrawl is making you cranky.

I have this book on pre-order through Amazon. I love the Betsy series and am so looking forward to this one, especially since Antonia of the Wyndham werewolves now serves Betsy instead. And if you didn't know she'd jumped ship and joined the vamps then I suggest you read Dead And Loving It. That's when it happens.

Great New Book!

I'd like to take a moment to tell you about a great new book by Gena Showalter. Enslave Me Sweetly is the newest book in Gena's arsenal. I haven't read it yet. It's just out. But I have it on the way from Amazon. And I can honestly say that everything Gena does is great. She is one of THE best authors.

In Enslave Me Sweetly Gena pairs up a very unique duo. She's a deadly asassin and he's a government field operative. The need to work together to save the world. But that won't be easy. She resents being forced to accept a partner after her one and only disastrous mission. But one thing is for sure, between fighting for their lives and fighting their attraction for each other, something's gotta give.

If you'd like to learn more about this book or any other of Gena's books, go to http://members.cox.net/genashowalter/ and check out Gena's webpage. You won't regret it, I promise.

New Authors And Agents

My mom is without a doubt one of the most talented writers I have ever read. And I don't say that because I am her daughter. I love to read and what she writes has always held me from start to finish. A few of us tried a couple years back to get her to try and write professionally. And she had even gotten an agent interested in her work. They had compiled many of her writings and were just about ready to submit them when disaster struck.

My mom's agent had a family tragedy. The agent's ex-wife and mother of his son had a serious bout of depression. She got into her car and drove herself on purpose into a tree. She died. My mom's agent kinda went crazy after that. He just disappeared and no one, not even his close friends have seen him since. This ended my mom's desire to try at that time to be published.

Now a few years later, people like me and some of our friends are again trying to get her to try again at having her work published. So my mom has somewhat caved. She has posted a short story up on her blog in the hopes of getting some feedback. So if everyone who checks out my blog could head on over to hers and see what they think, I'd appreciate it. Her blog address is http://lins-blog.blogspot.com/ and she actually does talk about what went on with her agent.

I personally don't think she should start out with an agent this time. I'm not saying never get an agent, but I think she should start on her own. She writes some of the best contemporary paranormal romance and modern fantasy stuff. I think she should try Luna Books or even Harlequin's new Nocturne series to start with. But that's just me.:-)

Oh it's the best news. At least in my opinion. They have upped the release date of the Garfield movie sequel. Now instead of coming out in August it will be released at the end of June. Oh yeah, oh yeah. It looks like it's gonna be great. In "Garfield A Tale of Two Kitties" everyone's favorite fat cat decides to follow his hapless owner Jon to London. Jon headed to London for a romantic setting in which to propose to his vet girlfriend, Liz. Along with Odie, Garfield makes his way to England and the country will never be the same again. Garfield gets mistaken for a royal cat and he lives the high life. But with great wealth comes great problems. Like greedy royals who'd like to get rid of you in order to obtain your wealth. The trailer for this movie looks fantastic.

The official site is up, but there isn't much there yet. However, you can register for updates and check out the film trailer. If you'd like to see it head on over to www.garfieldmovie.com for a visit. I LOVE GARFIELD!!!!
