Meeting George Takei, my Skye of the Damned debut, and you can PRE-ORDER Eterna Files!
(Mon, 14 Jul 2014)
Apologies for being quieter on the blog front than I'd like. Deadlines, travel, projects... But there's a lot of excitement in the works. I've joined the East Coast team of Jimmy Diggs' House of
Diggs production company, which is such a thrill. His projects are very exciting and the wealth of experience he brings from various franchises like Star Trek is inspiring, I am thrilled to be on
board as contributing talent in various capacities as a writer, consultant and performer.
The amazing and unparalleled George Takei came in to the media studio where I work to promote his new film To Be Takei, telling his inspiring story and just generally being Oh My wonderful. While he
was in the studio I got a chance to pass along regards from Jimmy and our East Coast wing of the HOD team, as George has been a big inspiration to us all.
And Episode 5 of SKYE OF THE DAMNED is out now! Come see me be Danae, sassy Queen of the Dark FAE as an epic fight scene erupts at a wake...
Here are some of my favourite screen shots:

pre-orders and your support in this exciting new venture.

Out of the Deadline Cave and Into the Taco Church...
(Mon, 02 Jun 2014)
Greetings, Dear Reader! Those of you who follow my goings on know that I've been a bit under a rock on major major book deadline(s). I've come out briefly for things like one day at the
Steampunk World's Fair and one day at Book Expo America, but the most important thing of late has been getting THE ETERNA FILES ready for your delectable consumption come this fall with a teaser
novella and early 2015 with book one's magical release, as I shift my writerly career into the hands of Tor Books, a transition I am very excited
I've also been working background on the HBO show Boardwalk Empire lately, I'm so proud I've worked every season of the show. ANOTHER TREAT was the thrill of seeing myself featured in the James Gray
film The Immigrant, a 1920s period drama that's a really amazing film. I'm sitting next to Marion Cotillard (Ewa) as she watches Jeremy
Renner (Orlando the magician) wow the Ellis Island audience with his performance. My hair is in a bun, I'm in glasses, and you see me several times in those shots and I'm really thrilled, as
working that particular Ellis Island scene as well as working several days on the whole production, was a really wonderful experience, especially as a historical novelist, their eye to detail and
care for us as a group was great.
I'll ALSO be featured in the upcoming episode of the Urban Fantasy web-series full of kick-ass fights and general genre fabulousness, SKYE OF THE DAMNED,
episode 5, in which I play Danae, Queen of the Unseelie FAE. I know, ME? Queen of the dark fae? No. That so doesn't suit me at all. *grin* So stay tuned for that episode launching next week!
If you haven't caught up with my books and want some insight into THE ETERNA FILES, as I'll be taking some of the darkest plot threads of the Magic Most Foul saga and making it all A WHOLE
LOT CREEPIER (I know, it's hard to do, because it's damn creepy already, but in my coming works, the creepy expands on a far grander scale), please check out the Magic Most Foul series and in book 3, The Double Life of Incorporate Things, I introduce some of my Eterna
ETERNA will launch a teaser novella with Tor this fall and we'll have an early 2015 debut, so STAY TUNED! (And catch up on Magic Most Foul. It
certainly isn't a prerequisite, however if you like Gothic Victorian Paranormal Fantasy, well, then, you're in the right place as that's entirely what I do.)
IN THE MEANTIME - THE HOLY TACO CHURCH and PHOENIX COMICON!
The amazing Kevin Hearne, who might be one of the most utterly delightful gentleman on the planet, as fabulous an author as he is a human, has
organized an amazing author group that I'm very tickled to be a part of. Follow our religious love of food (particularly Tacos and Margaritas) alongside the goings on of our books. I'm holding
down the Vegetarian quotient of the Holy Taco Church as Our Lady Pico de Gallo and will be offering up some of the ways I taco it up without dead carcass. My first post goes up
June 12th, but please check out the site and our fabulous authors and sign up for our mailing list.
If any of you are in the Phoenix Comicon area, a great deal of "The Church" will be in attendance so come see us! I'll have all three Magic Most Foul saga books available via the wonderful Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore to sign over in our Author Alley, if you have stock of any Strangely Beautiful
editions that are now out of print (But not for long as everything begins it's new and shiny re-issue next year thanks to Tor!) feel free to bring them along and I'll love to sign those too!
Here are my favourite BEA pictures taken by the lovely Alexis Daria! The first is of me side by side with my beloved Alethea Kontis, we celebrated 5 years of being Kindred Spirits this BEA, and Alexis got the next picture of me during my signing at the Science Fiction / Fantasy
Writers of America booth. Cheers and happy haunting!
