I made it back home from New York City late last night so there was no time to update my blog until now. The meetings all went well, but I think I'm catching a cold from all this nasty weather we're having. I've decided to take the night off and relax. My editor has Book 3 and plans are coming together for the February Comic-con. Everything is flowing smoothly along. Later this month, I will receive the edits for the novella I wrote, but in the meantime, I'll be digging back into my work on Book 4.
In other randomness, I had a blog reader recently ask me for a list of some other great paranormal/urban fantasy writers. Well, I feel a little bad trying to create this list. You see, I pretty much stopped reading urban fantasty after I started writing it professionally. I am afraid of being influenced by someone else. I did do a lot of reading before hand, but I know I've missed out on a lot of great writers.
So here is a very brief list of some great urban fantasy/paranormal romance writers that I have read and enjoyed. At least this should serve as a good starting point.
Charlaine Harris -- Sookie Stackhouse
Laurell K. Hamilton (the early years of the Anita Blake series -- I have gotten around to reading that last 8 books or so)
Jim Butcher -- Dresden series
Simon Green -- Nightside series
Christine Feehan -- Carpathian series
So if I'm not allowed to read UF any longer, what am I reading?
But that's assuming that I've got some free time from writing... which I don't.
