It's MAGIC...

While waiting for the good word from my editor about THE ROAD TO HELL, I've been giving the contemporary fantasy some serious thought. And I've come up with a plot that I think works well. The YA urban fantasy is officially up and running as a WIP, and the name is...

THE MAGIC BRIGADE.

Two chapters done. Don't know if it's any good; fingers crossed. I'm not sharing it with my agent until it's done, spit shined and polished. But I have me a good feeling about it.

Books to Read
I finished both Hunter's Moon and Moon's Web by Cathy Clamp and C.T. Adams. And folks, if you like werewolf stories, and you like romance--and if you like dark, anti-hero protagonists--then this is the series for you. Excellent stuff, especially regarding sensory description.

I'm finally reading Ally Carter's uber-amazing Cheating at Solitaire. And I'm having a blast while I'm reading it. Lighthearted and fun, this is, simply put, a terrific read. I'm so going to have to buy her YA book, I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You when it's available...

I just read a horrible erotic romance that had me throwing the book across the room and cracking up at the same time.

Heh, those are the worst -- the ones that make us laugh because they're so bad.

Thanks, Heather! :-*

And Ally -- you're quite welcome! SOLITAIRE was a fabulous read, and I was sorry when it was over because I wanted to keep on reading!
