Alright…alright dudes, can we get with the program here?
Dudes, that was last week. This week…
Dudes, that’s tomorrow, although we are all going to say HAPPY RELEASE DAY CAT, my fav horror writer. May you rock the charts!
This week…. this week you are welcoming me.
Okay dudes… what did I say about the program?
Because I want to thank Elyzabeth M. Valey for letting me blog about the ‘Heeling power of shoes.’
And also Jane Hunt for not only interviewing Lady Malice, but reviewing her as well with a lovely review.
Then there was Lady Fury and her invite…but perhaps the less said about that the better. http://t.co/wdB8rxWAo7
What I would like to say is I have been popping corks that it has got into the top 100 in Viking and also Ancient World Romance on both Amazons – an absolute first for me. I know cos the lovely Cat Cavendish and Jane Hunt told me.
Anyway, when I was battering the brain thinking of doing blogs for the blog tour and trying to make them all different–like shoving bamboo sticks under the fingers, when you are still in ’round’ edits and that release date is ticking like a time bomb, I thought I would take some pictures of my four book jackets for promo.
no I never I said PROMO not PORNO, do clean your sweet little ears out. And that was what had gave me the idea of the posts about handbags and shoes and defining my heroines through their personal tastes. It is important when you are writing NOT to churn out the same characters with the exact same traits after all. They might share certain things in common.
They are different. SO I took each book jacket into the garden and tried to photograph them where I felt my four ladies would prefer.
Lady Fury, I chose the decking. It has mirrors and she does like looking at herself. Then there’s the pot. Very handy for hiding a body in. Not that she hides her hubby in a garden pot. No. Why keep him in there when there’s a cellar with a box in it.
I gave Sapphire the remodelled patio… It’s next to a herb garden you see and she might use some of these herbs as a help with Devorlane Hawley’s opium addiction. Oh wait… she also buried a body…with his help, in a herb garden.
I gave Kara and the Wolf the loggia.
I figured it was preferable to his cave and they could eat and he could cook in comfort. But hey who knows?
Lastly I gave Sin and Malice the courtyard. Malice is rather appalled by what Sin regards as the height of Viking advancement with pigs, chickens and ducks snorting in and out the house floor and clucking about the yard and at one point thinks it will be nothing to get rid of them all, WHEN she finally gets her mitts into Sin…. To quote the lovely Alison Lodge and her wonderful review, you can tell that will NOT end well.
I thought Malice welcome somewhere devoid of these things in the first place.
I quite enjoy when I’m writing, fleshing out the kind of clothes, hairstyles, bags, shoes etc, my heroines have and matching them to their personalities. If nothing else it gives me something to blog about!
Oh, and a Happy HAPPY Release Day tomorrow Cat Cavendish. https://shehannemoore.wordpress.com/2015/07/12/nemesis-a-darkly-avenging-angel-and-catherine-Cavendish/
