When you finally get around to reading this I’ll be on my way to New Orleans. Home of Saints football and Hornets basketball, the French Quarter, jazz, Mardi Gras, Voodoo, haunted cemetaries, The Cafe Du Monde with mouth watering beignets and piping hot chicory coffee. Yummmm. Oh, yeah, also Sherrilyn Kenyon’s K-Con, her fan convention, which is the real reason for my trip (thanks for the invite Sherri).
I’ll be blogging daily from the Vampire balls to the cemetaries, but don’t worry, I have it on good authority that the Dark Hunters will be there in force to protect us. (But who will protect them from their rabid fans?)
BTW, I also received this email from Berta Platas and thought it was a great idea for the Halloween Week:
Thought you’d get a kick out of this! I’m starting off a Chica Lit Ghost Story Blog Tour on Saturday. I’ll post an original ghost story on my blog with a link to the next ghost story. Five in all! It’ll be a blast. Hope you stop by!
Here’s the schedule, with links:
Great idea to read them with candles lit and drinking some hot cider (or whatever warms your tummy). Thanks for the heads up Berta.
And because I’m not doing a Your Turn blog this Friday, I’ll tell you now that this week I read The Serpent Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt. This historical romance has country girl Lucy Craddock-Hayes, meeting her dream man by tripping over his naked, unconscious body (why do these things never happen to me?). Viscount Simon Iddesleigh is on the trail of revenge when he is savagely beaten, but Lucy is there to nurse him back to health and try to soothe his need for vengence. What sets this book apart is the interwoven story that Simon tells Lucy (in little snippets) throughout the book about the Serpent Prince. This enchanting tale keeps you enthralled long after the book ends. Even though this is the third book (following The Raven Prince and The Leopard Prince), it is a stand alone and the books need not be read in order, but read them all anyway, simply delightful.
Bottom line: I’ve heard that I might not have to look very far for a naked, unconscious man in New Orleans. Remember I’ll have my video camera with me, so whatever I see…you see.
