Witch Blood Released!

It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted, but I have good news–the third novel in my Vampire in the City series, Witch Blood, was just released!

The cover:

What have I been up to since I last posted, other than getting this book out? Glad you asked!

1. Working on the 4th book in the series, which is called Cold Blood. The first chapter is included in the above-mentioned book.

2. Working a day job. I’d been a freelance editor until about a month ago. Working 9-5:30 is much more stressful than working whenever I feel like it.

3. Buying a house. This is why I took the day job. Ack, huge mortgage! We haven’t moved yet, but the closing should be sometime this month.

4. Being caught in a hurricane. Fortunately, my part of Queens was mostly spared. But we were very lucky, as I know more than a few who have lost literally everything. I can’t imagine what I would do in that situation. Those who want to help can donate to the Red Cross here. If you’re an animal lover, like me, also consider the Wildlife Conservation Society. They run the New York Aquarium, which is closed indefinitely due to extensive damage.

I don’t want to end on a sad note, so here’s a photo of my cute kitty Pyewacket.

Nothing much going on at this blog, but I will say that I have now officially finished the second draft of Witch Blood. Comments are back from almost all of the beta readers, and I am digesting them and incorporating changes.

Speaking of digesting, I do write another blog, which you can find here: The Indolent Vegan. I tend to update that a little more frequently because, let’s face it, I eat more than I write. And yes, I am a vegan writer of vampire fiction. I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere.

In other news, New Blood just got another great review, and I also did an interview in which I attempted humor. You can read it here:  New Blood Comes to Town!
