Hope everyone had a great holiday! I took advantage of the season and have finished my edits on book 4 (I think Web of ___ may be the title). The lovely Bonnie *cough* is giving it a final typo check and then it is off to the mighty Ed, and then the Beta readers. Yay! I don’t want to make promises, but with the apocalypse coming up (LOL!) I am*hoping* to get books 4 & 5 out this year; 4 in the Spring and 5 close to Christmas (12-12-12 would be an awesome release date!). Since I haven’t started book 5 yet, (tentatively titled Heart of the Raven which will ruin my pattern of three word titles) it’s hard to say if it will come to pass, or not. But, four should definitely be out by summer, unless some major catastrophe occurs.
Now that I’ve bored you to tears, here is a cool bonus link. Angie at Lariats & Lavender has started a new weekly segment called Vampirism Mondays. She has some fun links already (I want the vampire victim necklace!) and I’m sure there will be more every week for us vampire lovers (She also had some very kind words to say about Shades of Gray that made my New Year quite happy!)
As for the “ponder-y” question, it goes as such: WordPress has released a white version of this blog theme. While I’m attached to the black because it looks “cool” and “vampire-y”, I’m the first to admit that I can’t read white words on a black background for very long (for decent sized posts I have to copy the content and paste it into a document, read it, then come back to the page and comment). I don’t know if this is an affliction anyone else suffers from but, just in case, I have been considering swapping to the white version and making new wallpaper etc in white and grays. So, the question is: does reading white words on a black background mess with your eyes, too? Or is it just me? Is the black cooler, or would white make you go “Yay! I can finally READ this crap”?
Hope everyone had a great New Year and has a happy 2012-year-of-the-dragon-apocalypse.
