First, I just heard this morning from my agent that Anne Sowards at Berkely bought BLOODY SMASHING -- the third installment of the Garnet Lacey series, which continues the adventures of Garnet, Sebastian Von Traum and the gang at Mercury Crossing. They want a delivery of May of 07, so that means it will be out some time in spring of 08. DEAD SEXY (book two) is already delivered and will be out in 07. Hooray!
Secondly, I'm not sure if I ever followed up about the short story that I submitted to Charaline Harris' vampire birthday anthology MANY BLOODY RETURNS (Ace - paperback). My story called "Fire and Ice and Linguine for Two" has been delivered, accepted, revised and is now also waiting for publication. It's a short story featuring Garnet and is about Sebastian's birthday.
