Yeah, I really am getting to that newsletter. Eventually. As a filler for now, I want to announce a contest to go along with book 3 – Unbound and Determined. Help name the furball!
Greyson’s sometimes semi-faithful companion looks like he’ll be hanging around, and the gods have decided he needs a proper name. I’ve had a few ideas, bu I want to see what you think. Of the suggestions I get, I’ll host a poll, but the author’s decisions are final. Probably.
If I select your name with or without the support of ye olde faithful readers, you will get signed copies of books 1, 2 and 3 when they come out. I’ll announce the name in late Octoberish, so get your suggestions in!
Melvin is in charge of collecting the suggestions at: firstname.lastname@example.org!
I’m working on the next newsletter, and I’ve been slack with all of the business of the last couple of months.
The good news is Book 2 is making its way through the test reviews. For a taste, Rick Gualtieri posted a challenge this morning on Facebook. Here is the little snipped I posted in response:
MY MIND REELED at the revelation. I had only met Betty and Dick briefly once in LA. In fact, it was just as a fight broke out in a little café with a group of Fomorians, a couple of starlet woodland elves, and a mating pair of geeky werewolves on their honeymoon. I introduced myself just long enough to escort them out of the combat zone to the safety of Longbow Initiative forces.
Hip-hop had gotten up and stood beside me. He asked, “Are you staying for dinner after the show?”
I said, “I doubt it. Long drive ahead and all.”
Hip-hop snickered. “I wouldn’t recommend it anyway. I’m not sure who the meatloaf is made of.”
