Sundays and Holidays and TBR Giveaways

Last day on the day job until January 4, 2016! Can I hear an Amen?

In addition to lots of bookish projects (proofing, writing, revising), I’m going to spend my two-week break revamping the blog, content-wise. So I anticipate blogging only on Sundays and Mondays for the next couple of weeks. You can always reach me by email because I never quite manage to completely unplug.

The new regular blog schedule, whatever that turns out to be, will pick up on January 4. I’ve been wanting to have more direct interaction with you guys than I currently do, and losing my assistant is forcing that issue. If you follow me on Facebook, either on my author page or by friending me on my personal page (which is where the fun stuff is like what the frat boys are doing outside my office window), you know that I’ve decided to step away from doing the Fiction Affliction columns for after five years. It has been a good gig, but it takes a LOT of time to do. Not doing FA means the Readers Choice Mondays will change a bit as well–right now, I’m still planning to have them but they will be in a different format.

I know I’ve asked this before, but are there memes on other blogs you always enjoy reading? Are you only interested in paranormal fiction, or can you bear with me as I chat about my new suspense series (seriously, it’s like Penton and Sentinels had a baby and it was human–LOL). Let me know what you’d enjoy seeing more of on this blog, and it will help me plan….and you can be entered to win one of those TBR books!

  1. I enjoy the new book list on Monday. I go through it and then see if my library has any of the books I’m interested in. Also I read a lot of genres so I like hearing about non paranormal books. And hearing about how you research and write is interesting.

    • Thanks, Sandy! I will definitely be keeping the Monday book lists. It might be that I highlight some and just list the others with links, or at least that’s the way I’m leaning right now. It’ll definitely stay in some form!

  2. I would love to read about your process of writing and what keeps you motivated 🙂 Also some writing tips would be great!

  3. I, too, am off work until the 4th (which is my birthday!). Enjoy your time off 🙂
    I love the behind the scenes stuff and info & photos of NOLA.

  4. I think we would bear with you as you blog about any of your books. I also enjoy the behind the scenes stuff and any of the snippets. Even though I say I only read urban fantasy, it has grown to some paranormal romance, steam punk, sci-fi, mysteries, etc.. Mostly spin offs from urban fantasy authors. Have also added new authors to my buy list by first learning of their books here at your blog as you let us know of new releases and new authors. Because of Preternatura I have added: Cecy Robson, Lexi George, Jill Archer, Linda Thomas-Sundstorm, Cecilia Dominic, Viola Carr, Julie Kenner, Jan DeLima,
    Linda Grimes, Abigail Baker, and Lauren Dane. So keep introducing us to new reads.

    • Thanks, Lil! Publishers aren’t buying paranormals right now and I’m prevented from writing urban fantasy by contract restrictions, at least until next year. But I really love this new series so I hope you guys will find it interesting too!

  5. I love the behind the scenes stuff you share about your writing process. Especially when you share photos of places you use in your stories. I also use the weekly book list to check out new books. I like to know about books and authors you enjoy. I’m open to anything you want to try!

    • Thanks, Liz–I’m always afraid that stuff will bore people so I’m glad to hear it doesn’t! One of my resolutions this year–one that I hope to actually keep–is to read more. Not sure exactly when that is going to happen. Maybe during my lunch hour!

  6. I’ve liked everything you’ve written so far. So I’m happy to hear about all your books.

    • Thanks, Miki :-). I’m cooking up some new ideas so you never know what I’ll come up with next. Fingers crossed that the new series does well, because that will give me a lot more freedom to write whatever I want!

  7. I love your books and am interested in all of your publications. I especially enjoy hearing about the inspiration and the background for all of your works. Snippets, pictures of locations, and research info are fascinating. Even though paranormal romance and urban fantasy are my favorite genres, I like reading many different types of books and find the Monday Readers Choice post very interesting.

  8. I always find your posts informative and I’m happy to hear about all of your books, not just the paranormal ones. Your blog is one of my favorites, just as it currently is.

  9. A bit late to the party, but Suzanne, this is your website. As your fan, I want to know everything that you write as I might like that as well. A good author whose style I enjoy, can make me read genres I normally would not. But I do read some suspense as well. Like your Deep, Dark and … series.
