Caridad Pineiro's Characters Suck (Blood)!
I've been enjoying exchanging a few emails with prolific and talented author Caridad Pineiro
. Caridad is an attorney who still finds time to write chica lit, such as Sex and the South Beach Chicas
; The Calling
, a vampire series; suspense novels; and other paranormals. She has a contest
every month, and the winner gets signed books and a very cool t-shirt.
You can read a portion of Devotion Calls
if you scroll down on the link page, and I'm thrilled that Caridad will be doing a Q&A for the Biting Edge in May. Her vampires make me want to drink tequila in NY bars
I have lost my Slinky. No, Slinky is not a cat. I had a small Slinky that I liked to play with while talking on the phone, or thinking through an idea, and it has gone missing.BETTER THAN EXPECTED TIMES:
I checked out the new vampire series, Blood Ties
, on Lifetime, based on Tanya Huff's series. It was very Buffy inspired, but that's not a bad thing, and I really liked Christina Cox
as Vicki Nelson. The character had a tough, gruff edge that worked, but not in that "isn't she cute when she's mad?" annoying way.
