I got the cover for my third Felix Gomez book, The Undead Kama Sutra
And I accuse Richelle Mead of pre-plagiarism. If you doubt me, then check out her UK cover for Succubus Blues.
Coincidence? I think not. A succubus with wings? Please, that is such a ripoff of the vampire wardrobe.
For those of you wondering about the contest, our evaluation process is hermetically sealed. Even I don't know what's going on and I'm one of the judges!
Saturday I attended The Exotic in Literature Salon
, part of the Lighthouse Writers Workshop Lit Fest.
The writers were Harrison Fletcher, Tamara Guirado, and Alex Espinoza. Alex read from his novel, Still Water Saints.
He's the one at the lectern. Tamara is the one with the angelic literary glow behind her.
The panel discussed, "what is exotic?" and it was like talking about politics. There were a lot of opinions but no consensus was reached. Me, I consider mysteries set in Baltimore or south Boston as exotic.
What is exotic to you?
