Congratulations, first off, to Lynda Hilburn
a fellow Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer, for the publication of her new book The Vampire Shrink. Enjoy this special time, Lynda.
Been watching as many of the new super/paranormal shows as I can. Last week caught The Bionic Woman. I found this review
and it pretty well sums up what I thought, along with the fact that I fell asleep. I will in fairness, however, give it one more try.
I also caught Reaper
, on CW, which I thought was very funny and very entertaining. I love the way they promo it as being the one new television show that will NOT inspire, change the way you think or transform your life. Gotta love heroes who go after demons garbed in protective clothing made up of Home Depot gear and armed with dirt devils! Pretty damned clever.
Looks like John Grisham is being sued
over his book The Innocent Man. Attorneys for a district attorney and a former Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agent said they will file a lawsuit accusing Grisham of libel and conspiracy. The book chronicles the trial and lengthy imprisonment of Ron Williamson and Dennis Fritz, who were wrongly convicted of the 1982 rape and murder of Deborah Sue Carter of Ada. DNA evidence later cleared both men and implicated Glen Gore, who was convicted last year of Carter's murder. Grisham's book is critical of investigators and Pontotoc County District Attorney William Peterson.
Other targets of the lawsuit include another author, Robert Mayer, who wrote a similar book; Fritz; attorney Barry Scheck, who helped free Fritz and Williamson; and publishing companies involved with the two books.
Some Buffy Alumni News:
Smallville: James Marsters will be back as Brainiac later in the season. He also has a recurring role as a detective in Without A Trace.
Supernatural: Mercedes McNab (Harmony), will be guest starring on the November 15th episode of Supernatural. As a vamp, of course.
Criminal Minds: Nicholas Brendon ( Xander) will be appearing in a guest star role as Kevin, described as "a computer expert who’s part of the investigative team." His website says the role has the potential to be recurring.
On the personal writing front, yesterday was one of those days when everything I wrote looked like crap. I hate that. I’ll go over it about a million times today, but why is it that some days the words just flow and others, you have to pull the muse kicking and screaming out of her hole? Any hints as to how to coax that little demon to be more cooperative?
PS Richelle, as my deadline approaches, I’m considering your Mountain Dew diet. My question, should I warn family and friends beforehand?
PPS Mario and I have decided on a new contest. Details will be forthcoming so stay tuned!!
