Two new books on the shelf now from writer pals.Jackie Kessler
's HOTTER THAN HELL-- the third in the Hell on Earth series. And the first in Richelle Mead's
new series, STORM BORN. I've had the pleasure of reading both --I say run to the bookstore and check them out!
Getting ready to head off to Denvention this weekend. Mario and I plan to hang out and take lots of pics to share. We met at the convention center yesterday to register before the crowds—it was VERY quiet. Today and tomorrow will not be.
In the meantime, something from the NYT. Alan Ball talking of True Blood, his series featuring Charlaine Harris’ wonderful Sookie Stackhouse. Here’s what he said and a link
to the full article:
"The first season of “True Blood” will essentially follow “Dead Until Dark,” the first book of the series. “We’re trying to remain as true to her books as possible, “Mr. Ball said. “Charlaine’s world is very detailed. It feels very real. So we’re not going to change the structure very much. And the identity of the main killer is so well done, I didn’t want to change it. So I just hope that people who know how the story turns out will keep it themselves.”
A couple of cool videos, The first
, a 4 minute animated Buffy episode for a series that was never made.
