It's all about Shane (for once)

First, Happy Canada Day to my friends from the north!

If I were really organized and forward-thinking, today would be the big debut of Regina, the Canadian vampire from Wicked Game. But alas, I didn't think of that until now.

Instead, I'm giving Shane McAllister his day in the sun--er, moon. (Sun bad, very very bad!)

First, I'm telling the world a little more about him over at Part Two of my stay on the Desert Island Keeper island (why yes, the daquiris are divine). The drawing for a signed copy of Wicked Game (or one of my other books if you've got that already) will take place at 11:59pm eastern tonight, so put your commentin' boots on.

Also, his MySpace page is up at last! He even blogged a couple of times. Go friend him and make him feel all warm inside, because the only other way to do that is--well, you know.

I think part of his incentive to get off his butt and onto the social networking site was to referee the escalating tension between Ciara and vampire (sorry, nightkind) Dante Baptiste from A Rush of Wings. Things should really get interesting now. Shane's never been one for delicate politicking.

In case you missed my late-night posting, Monroe's story is up on my website now for your reading (and listening) enjoyment. To celebrate, I'm giving away a brand-new copy of my favorite blues CD. For details, read last night's post.
