Today I’m visiting with Roxanne Rhoads at Fang-tastic Books for a Q&A in which I discuss keeping my pen names organized, character inspiration, mourning my vamps, and other fangtastic subjects. Plus, I’m giving away another signed copy of Tall, Dark & Fangsome. WILL THE FUN AND FRIVOLITY EVER END?
No, no it won’t. But this is my last Q&A until next Tuesday. So there is a reprieve in the fun and the frivolity.
I’m starting to hit my stride with NIGHTSHADE. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself. As usual, it’s turning out just a teensy bit different than I had envisioned it. This typically happens with new characters I’ve haven’t gotten to know yet. I have an idea of how they’re going to act and react on the page, so I can surmise things when I write my synopsis. When it comes time to letting them do their thing I often find that they want to do things rather…differently. But most of the time different is good and it feels truer to the character, yada yada, so I let them go on their merry way. My characters aren’t all that merry in this book, though. But I am having fun torturing them. *cackles*
I twittered this, but I’ll announce it here as well… Tall, Dark & Fangsome has gone into a second printing after being out for only a week. How awesome is that? VERY AWESOME.
And in other awesome news, Demon Princess: Reign or Shine (25 more days!!) will officially be available in Australia. A second print run of this will be shipped and distributed there. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia!! My love for Hugh Jackman has faded in recent months, but my love of the Land Down Under has not.
Oh, and last but certainly not least, I’ve started an official Michelle Rowen Books page on Facebook. This is separate from my Michelle Rowen personal page. The new page is going to have a mirror of this blog, book cover archive, updates, info on appearances, and all that fun stuff. All the cool writers have Facebook fan pages. So now I do too! J O I N T O D A Y ! !
Okay, that’s all for now and probably for the weekend as well of which I have plans to…uh, write! Hooray! Happy Labour Day!
