Monday Stuff

Got word this weekend that Unexpected, Megan Warden’s book set in the Cascadia Wolves universe, has been contracted by Samhain. You should see it in July or August.

Waiting to hear back on beta on Undercover. I’ve got some feedback so far and I’m relieved. I’m waiting to see what my agent thinks of it and of a proposal I sent her last week as well.

Oh! I did sneak in some reading over the weekend – Patricia Briggs has seriously hit it out of the park yet again with her newest installment in the Mercy Thompson series. Iron Kissed was seriously fabulous. Made me actually weep, not just cry, but weep in one part. The writing is taut and interesting and I love Mercy’s character. I think the resolution with who Mercy chooses works really well and makes sense for everyone involved. Just a really fabulous book.

I also read Carrie Vaughn’s next Kitty book – Kitty and the Silver Bullet. Also fabulous. There were times when I just wanted to smack the crap out of Kitty. Part of the appeal though is how much she grows, of how despite the fact that she’s a werewolf, she’s scared and flawed and well, human. The action was well done and I love Ben’s character development too.

My dude and I watched Shoot em Up on Friday night. First of all, it might come as a surprise to you all but I have a wee bit of a crush on Clive Owen. Just a teeeny weeeny one. I laughed and laughed as I watched the movie. It’s meant to be over the top and campy and it is. Paul Giamati is absolutely hilarious and I don’t mind looking at Monica Belluci in any way so it was all win win for me.

Um, that’s about it for my exciting life today.

    Great news on Megan’s story. I loved Wolf Unbound and definitely need my Cascadia Wolves fix!

    I haven’t read Patricia Briggs’ latest book yet. I’m dying to read it because I’ve heard so many positive comments. Maybe later in the month.

    Congrats on Unexpected!

    I love Kitty.

    And I LOVED that movie. Have never seen a bad Clive movie. Ever.
