Three years ago today

Word for word, from my journal:

Got a new idea today, for a (God help me) vampire series. The titles will have Bad in them and be song titles, like "Bad Company," "Bad to the Bone," and "Bad Medicine," etc. The heroine works in a radio station where the nighttime DJs are all vampires, each of them stuck in the era they were vamped in. They can't learn anything new as vampires.

Hi Jeri~

I finished Wicked Game the other day and I absolutely LOVED it! I am not surprised by this fact and am already eagerly awaiting the next installment!

Thanks, Lori, glad you liked it!

To tide readers over until BAD TO THE BONE comes out in 340 days, I'll be posting free short stories about each of the vampire DJs 'turnings' to this website every other month, beginning the end of June with Monroe.

Newsletter subscribers get a sneak peek a week ahead of time!

Totally cool to be able to look back in your journal...and now Wicked Game is a reality! :) I'm in the process of reading it right now(Adrian P. told me about it - all of us at Club Hell look forward to Ciara and Dante's interview). It will be really interesting to read about all the vampire's "turnings" much to look forward too!!!

Kristin :)

Hey Kristin, thanks--hope you enjoy it! I'm looking forward to the interview, too, as soon as I--I mean, Ciara, get a chance to breathe. ;-)
