The Book I'm Writing Now

Though I am in the middle of a blog tour for No Bells, the latest in my Rocky Bluff P.D. crime series--and you have no idea how complicated it has been--I am also writing the next in my Deputy Tempe Crabtree series which will not be due until the fall of 2013. (A good thing since I'm only about 1/2 of the way through.)

This particular book is full of spirits and ghosts and a bit of devil worshiping. Spirits and ghosts I know a lot about, devil worshiping, not so much and have had to do some research. Of course there's murder and a haunted house.

When I saw that they are reviving Dark Shadows I was thrilled. My kids used to rush home from school to watch each episode of Dark Shadows with me. Yes, it was cheesy, the acting was way overblown, the sets thrown together, but oh, it was so much fun. I've watched the trailer for the movie and I can hardly wait.

Johnny Depp will be a great Barnaby Collins.

What does this have to do with the book I'm writing? I hope I can put some of the same atmosphere into the book that the old Dark Shadows TV movie exuded. Corny or not, it was spooky.

My blog tour has had lots of bumps along the way. Doing it yourself is not easy.

You're right. It's not easy to arrange your own Blog Book Tour. Then again, every Blog Book Tour takes a lot of work. So much to do in so little time. I'm doing a workshop on Blog Book Tours at the Spring Fling Conference on Friday.
