2016 in Review

I feel like I need to do a “2016 in Review” post – mostly because I posted one last year and I think I should carry on the tradition. The biggest news was that Mirror World published my second book. This Night Sucks, a young adult vampire comedy novella, came out in June 2016. In September I attended the Worlds Collide Gala. I even remembered to post a picture of it on my blog. It was a good time, but it would have been better if we weren’t worried about our basement re-flooding the entire time.

In other writing news, I had my short story Cornelia & Timothy and the Wonderful World of Zines published in the Spring issue of Stinkwaves Magazine. This story originally appeared in my litzine 398#8 many moons ago.

I’ve been working on other stuff and things. But I really don’t like writing about what I’m working on, so I’m not going to.

The only other thing I can think to post about is that Alex and I adopted a new writing partner. Her name is Daisy, she’s cute and brown-ish and likes to nap in my office while I work. She also likes to sit on Alex’s lap while he works. She’s been getting along great with our cats, Lucy and Callie. Here she is napping in my office with Callie:

This Friday is Release Day for This Night Sucks!

This Friday, June 17th, is the release day for my newest book – This Night Sucks! We’re going to be celebrating with an on-line Facebook party with lots of prizes and special guests:

6:30 pm – Justine Alley Dowsett
7:00 pm – Sharon Ledwith
7:30 pm – Rita Monette
8:00 pm – K.S. Jones

Some of the prizes include Mirror World Publishing ebooks and a signed paperback copy of This Night Sucks!

What is the book about? Well, here you go:

Lana is a high school senior enrolled in Vampire Education – a class to teach students about the very real presence of vampires. She scores a date with her crush-of-her lifetime, Pete, but the date goes sour when Pete’s ex girlfriend, Katy, shows up all bloody and pissed off. Lana quickly realizes that Katy is not just her ordinary bitchy self – she has been turned into a vampire which, in turn, takes Lana and Pete’s date from a hot and steamy make-out session to an unexpected vampire-hunting expedition.

This Night Sucks is also the featured Mirror World book for the month of June. You can get the ebook for only $0.99! Or you can become a Mirror World member and get This Night Sucks and all other Mirror World ebooks for free!

***Just a heads up – This Nights Sucks is for older teen audiences (and adults too!) and is very different from the lighthearted fantasy world of She Dreamed of Dragons. There’s swearing and sex and vampires doing vampire-like things, like drinking blood and killing people.***
