Just a few things

I'm working, working, working like a busy little bee, so this will be short today. Plus it's a holiday here so everyone is home. It feels like Saturday; I actually forgot it wasn't, which is why this post is a bit later than normal today.

1. I'm guest blogging over at McKoala's blog today. It was to be just a regular guest blog but it looks like it's evolving into a chat-type thing, so come on by and chat! It'll be fun!

2. I feel so bad that I forgot to mention this, but Sidhevicious (is that a cool name or what?) over on livejournal has done both an interview with me and a review of Personal Demons over on her Bravenet site, so please visit over there, comment, check it out, all that good stuff!

3. My free gifties for the Romantic Times convention arrived safely at my editor's house, so make sure you stop by the Juno Books booth if you're going to RT and snap one up! As soon as I get some--she's going to send me some--I will post a picture and do some contests and stuff so people not going to RT can win some too. I'm quite excited about them, I haven't heard of anyone else doing them so if I'm lucky I'll be the first!

4. More great reviews are pouring in!

TwoLips Reviews gave Demon's Triad FIVE Lips (and 2 1/2 hot peppers) and said:

All I can say about Demon’s Triad is wow! Anna J. Evans and December Quinn have written an exhilarating book. The more I read, the more mesmerized I became with the plot. It was delicious and complicated, plus full of emotions that were so real I could almost feel what each of the characters were going through... I could not get enough of this book! This book pushes the envelope, so to speak, so it’s not for the faint of heart. I will definitely be recommending Demon’s Triad to everyone. I only have one request--a sequel please, ladies.

You can read the whole review here.

The Romance Readers Connection rated Black Dragon a FOUR and said:

Well-written and historically accurate, BLACK DRAGON is a novel sure to please historical fans. Readers will greatly enjoy this unusual look at a time period that is not nearly written about enough. Even more, however, readers will fall in love with both Isabelle and Gruffydd... Readers will be hooked all the way to the final page. BLACK DRAGON is the first December Quinn novel I’ve read, but it certainly won’t be my last!

That one is here.

Simply Romance Reviews gave Black Dragon a B+ and said:

I was quickly drawn in to Black Dragon. Isabelle is a warm and loving character and concerned for those around her and especially her new husband. Gruffyd has suffered tragically and you feel his pain as share his story... You can’t help but root for these characters to conquer their differences and for Isabelle to break down Gruffydd’s walls. This story has everything, suspense, heartache and salvation, and when Isabelle and Gruffydd finally come together they lit up the Welsh countryside as it it were May Day. I highly recommend this book!

Full review is here.

So that makes me happy. :-) Also, I got an email from my agent (ack!!) yesterday so I guess he hasn't changed his mind about me, which is nice.

I'm sad so many of my buddies are at Norwescon this weekend though and I can't go.

I'm sure there was more I wanted to say but I can't think of it. If I remember later I'll pop in and add it.

You are getting the reviews you deserve and that is great.

A critic asking for a sequel! That's good stuff. -V95
