2014 calendar already?



It's that time of year. Stores are finally throwing out the last of the 2013 calendars to display next year's, with the hope that people will buy them for Christmas presents. I think they do this expecting that the only ones who will buy calendars for Christmas are grandparents and people shopping crowded but bare aisles at 7:32 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

I learned recently, however, that my amazingly talented cover artist Silviya uses her artwork to make and sell calendars. Her 2014 calendar is now available here, and totally recommend you check it out and consider this if you need a calendar. This one is way better than what granny will tuck under the tree (or menorah, or festivus pole, or the kwanzaa kinara, or whatever symbolizes whatever you choose to celebrate)! This ain't your granny's calendar...that's for sure.

I mean, look at that art.

Gorgeous, right? If you follow the link to her 2014 calendar, you'll see a few of the images she's included. She does book covers and other digital imagery, too, so I recommend you check her out if you need anything. She is truly gifted!

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?
