Workaholics and OCD vampires

What could these possibly have in common? More than you think (unless you're thinking, "Quite a lot," in which case, it's not more than you think).

I wrote an essay about writers and workaholism over at SF Novelists. I think I've already made the First Step by acknowledging I have a problem (the other Eleven Steps are kinda yucky, so I'm stopping there).

At Patricia's Vampire Notes, I expound on vampires and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, which is so central to my WVMP Radio urban fantasy series, I can't believe I haven't blogged about it before. Duh. Comment to enter to win a signed copy of Bad to the Bone.

Don't forget, you have through Friday to enter to win a copy of Danielle Joseph's Shrinking Violet, the film rights for which were just bought by the Disney Channel. Big congrats to Danielle!

No need to enter me in the contest, Jeri. I just wanted to tell you I finished BAD TO THE BONE today and loved it. I'm already anxious for the next book!

I'm also in love with Dexter. Darn you - now I want a giant vampire dog! ;-)

Thanks so much, Karen! I'm glad you enjoyed BTTB. It would be cool to have a dog like Dexter, except he'd have to be an only dog, since he'd try to drink any other canine around. That would be seriously style-cramping--you could never take him out in public! :-)
