What's the Next Big Thing?

We've done wizards (thank you very much, JK Rowling!) and we've done vampires (hello, True Blood). We've all prepped for the zombie apocalypse and gone to Camp Half Blood. So what now? I'm trying to figure it out, because the next big thing has to be hovering just beyond the horizon, waiting for us to fall in love with it. Demons? They're already big in erotica, because that's like the ultimate bad boy. Roman gods against Norse gods in a steel cage death match? Because that would be kind of awesome.

So what is it? Mermaids? Cyclops? What mythical creatures are left out there for us to overuse and get tired of? Maybe a combination, like vampire mermaids or possessed satyrs. Or maybe this:

Off the Record, Question 1

Fake News at Its Finest

Life has a way of putting me in my place. I had grand intentions to post weekly, and three months later....

So I think it's great that people are talking about fake news these days, because fake news is at the heart of Off the Record. I have a sleezeball paparazzo named Derrick Fuchs (it looks like a swear word, but it's pronounced 'fooks,' a purposeful play on words to immediately show what a douche nozzle he is) in the novel. He writes his articles based on the latest gossip without really caring who he hurts or how much of it is made up. I haven't decided yet if the reader gets to meet him, but the excerpt today is the first article we see from him. Enjoy!

Off the Record, Question 1 Part 2

If you haven't noticed, the format for Off the Record isn't in regular chapters. Main character Devi Madrigal is looking back in an interview for Rocker Chic mag, something I made up because every sleezeball papparazzo antagonist needs a place to work, right? So instead of chapters, you'll see questions and articles about her. It's a fun format to write in.😍

When we last hung out with The Streakers, they were trying to figure out how to make the finale of a live reality show after their lead singer Raina Sky ditched them that morning. They heard Devi singing after her shift at the coffee shop and want to sneak her in to sing for them. Will Devi tell them they're crazy? Can they sneak her in to a studio with tight security? Will this girl with a guitar and a dream steal the chance she's been trying for three years to reach?
