I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but Fictionwise is having a huge anniversary sale right now. If you’ve been planning to get some stuff there, do so soon.
In case you’re wondering, yes, I bought some books — fourteen to be exact. They include Claudia Gray’s Stargazer and Jim Butcher’s Turn Coat. The latest Dresden Files is out in HC only, and Fictionwise was selling it for only $10 plus whatever discounts / rebates / promo it’s having, so I couldn’t resist. :) Besides I adore Harry.
Last night, I stayed up late brainstorming with May. I have the characters and basic dynamics among them, but I don’t have all the plot threads or GMC to make everything work. May was helpful and totally hilarious. I think she’s overly obsessed with hell, the apocalypse and the utter destruction of mankind these days. I’m going to spend several more days on plotting and see how everything comes together before starting a detailed scene-by-scene outline.
For your listening pleasure, here’s the music that inspired the opening scene of the new project, which I’m calling “Eve Clare Project” until I have a suitable title. (It used to be called Nine but I don’t think that works anymore.)
