Vampires? They’re Not Dead at All!

Just a quickie today. I’m hanging out with Kriss at Cabin Goddess and talking about vampires–namely, how I tried to set my vampire world apart in a sea of vampire novels. You can enter for the tour-wide giveaway here. And thanks to Kriss for the review! You can enter here for the tour-wide prizes.

Bear with me the next couple of weeks as I retool the blog. I hope to get a new header that better reflects the books I write. This one’s a bit…staid. LOL. And also as I give some thought about the blog itself; I want to do more blogging myself and limit guests to a couple of days a week; I sort of feel like the site has gotten away from me.

What are some features or memes on blogs that you enjoy reading? I’ve never been fond of the “in my mailbox” types of things, but now that I’m about to wrap up my stint in Dark Tower Purgatory and will be able to read for pleasure again, maybe I’ll revive a version of the book club where more folks can participate. Do a one-line from the work-in-progress day. Do some “behind the scenes” easter-egg type things from my books.

What would you like to see more of? All I know is that I MUST, and I mean MUST, unload some books before the second floor of my house collapses under the weight of my TBR and ARC stacks. So look for lots of giveaways, although not until I catch up with the ones I still owe people 🙂

  1. Definitely sneak peaks and behind the scenes info are some of my favorites. How about occasional lists of the books you are using or have used for research? Fun factoids from the evil day job? Dream vacation plans for you or your characters? If you could write a character in one of your favorite authors worlds, what or who would it be? I do enjoy the guest bloggers as well as I have found some fun new books to read. And as always, thanks for all your giveaways!

  2. “Behind the scenes” easter-egg type things are a favorite of mine. As is deleted scenes. Never liked in my mailbox or weekly recap blogs. I think if we follow a blog we already know what happened that week. Received a box of stuff I won from RT today, thank you.

  3. I enjoy behind the scenes looks at how an author researches and writes books. Also guest posts and the weekly new books. I find at least one or two books I want to read every Monday. Also I agree with Roger on the weekly wrap up. I read the blogs I follow every day so I already know what was posted during the week.

  4. I love behind the scenes but my favorite things authors do is to talk about what we talk about as bloggers. One author n in know does this thing on Tuesdays which he just talks about his weekend or day or a particular funny moment and shares a photo of something silly his cat or dog or child did. It makes you real. Watch Chuck Wendig on FB he goes from his stuff, to weird or b interesting current events, drink recioe so his sons antics back to something about writing. His blog terribleminds.Com or look up Andrew Smith and check his blog out. Perfect examples. . Oh and you can hang out with me anytime!

  5. I love behind the scenes, too. Things that inspire you, like all the NOLA info and pics you shared.

  6. behind the scenes and deleted scene are a must i think^^; since i follow every day i don’t need a weekly recap either
    book club can be great yes especially if not on new release^^

  7. LOL. My husband is constantly giving my ever growing pile of review copies the Stink Eye. If only he understood how many I take on as eBooks!

    I’m a giveaway junkie from way back, but I do love the more personalized posts. Wendig’s rants are terrifying and funny and strange, but not everybody can pull that off.

  8. Sneak peeks, behind the scenes, and character interviews are some of my favorites.
