If you just can't wait for the 11 October release, there's a small snippet of Crimson Death online here.

Despite all the hype about Edward and Ireland and cool stuff actually happening, they've chosen to showcase a pretty generic and unsexy sex scene, but with Damian in it, along with Nate and Anita.

Based on the excerpt, she still hasn't learned anything about specific words for sex scenes ("his body" ahoy!) or the idea that images of a person being like "meat between his teeth" is NOT SEXY, especially after early books when bodies were described as just so much meat.  I get that she's trying to tap into the whole shifters = animalistic deal but it's not quite working.

Laurell weighs in with her opinion on fanfiction on the BBC podcast, The Why Factor.


Mod note: LKH's part starts around 9mins in, she's on the anti-fanfic side of things.

Especially this week's. Remember the whole wtf moment in Dead Ice about how Anitaverse men apparently only think women take showers in order to ask for sex? Oglaf's latest made me spit my tea on the keyboard this morning. Someone needs to send this to Anita, stat!

Note - Oglaf is always funny as hell, but is almost never SFW.

I've started on Dead Ice. I'm trying to get through three or four chapters a day, work permitting. So far it's been an easier slog than Affliction, but looking at the work of my fellow sporkers doesn't lead me to believe it's going to stay that easy.

They're worth the read despite being a lot of the same ol' same ol' from LKH. I've included some of the more...special highlights. This is a great time to start playing LKH bingo. Or drinking.

Ten Terrifying Questions via Booktopia:

6. Please tell us about your latest novel…

A Shiver of Light is the first Meredith (Merry) Gentry novel in over four years. In re-reading the other eight novels in the series I discovered something I hadn’t known before, that the first seven books are really an epic political fantasy series a la George R. R. Martin except with more mystery, sex, and less killing off of main characters.

No Going Back: An Exclusive Interview with Laurell K Hamiton via Barnes & Noble

Readers, especially series-loving readers, don’t like too much change. I actually like character growth and change in a series, but I seem to be in the minority; most people like series to be like a brand name product that does the same thing every time, reliable. When the Anita Blake series changed, it made some readers feel betrayed, because their happy place was now an uncomfortable place for them, and uncomfortable isn’t happy for most people. Uncomfortable is the beginning of growth and change in real life and fictional; a lot of readers were thrilled with the new direction, but the ones that weren’t honestly did feel betrayed. Because I don’t feel that way as a reader, I had no way to anticipate it as a writer, so I wandered blissfully off the path and into the woods, only to find that some of the fans had turned into haters. In their minds they felt I had started the “fight,” because I took their beloved world and characters and changed them into people they didn’t enjoy anymore. In my mind I didn’t know there was a problem, until the first hate-filled spewing began. Now, most of my readers, and legions of new fans, have loved, and continue to love how Anita’s personal life and world have opened up, but I understand some of the hatred now. It won’t make it go away, or make me change what I write, or how, but I think I understand some of why it started in the first place.

Superspeak: An Interview with Laurell K Hamilton via Searching for Superwomen

I’ve lost count of the number of women who tell me that they didn’t know a woman could enjoy sex, until they read my books. Or the number of women who are angry at me, because sex is never that good in real life, and only their friends who were with them at the signings, assuring them that no, really sex really was that. The women who get angry about the sex not being realistic are always wearing wedding rings.

I realize LKH had nothing to do with Charmed. I just thought the community might enjoy these reviews. Mostly because the reviewer notes many similar points about Charmed: the heroes are really the villains, narcissism, feminism fail, logic fails, male abuse, and all kinds of snark.

Season 1: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38380-manic-episodes-charmed-season-1
Season 2: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38467-manic-episodes-charmed-season-2
Season 3: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38701-manic-episodes-charmed-season-3
Season 4: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38934-manic-episodes-charmed-season-4

There's more for the other seasons, but I didn't want to flood the board, and I wasn't certain how interested you'd be.

Happy watching and discussion.

30 pages for the day in three sessions of 12, 13, & 5. Still not completely out of this section of plot. Was hoping to finish before bed, but I give, need dinner, but the muse & I have played happily today. I still got to have lunch with my husband, Jon, and went to MMA class. Also, Dancing, the new Anita Blake e-special came out today! Thanks for all the great comments, everyone! Glad you are all enjoying it!

You can order Dancing from Amazon or Barnes & Noble

To top the day off I was in Jennie Breeden’s comic, The Devil’s Panties

This has been a wildly productive & truly awesome day!

It's worse than we predicted. I did a really loose sporking of it here while reading it, as that was the only way I could get through it. It is deadly dull.

There are many pages of suburban children learning ballet steps. There is no crimesolving, no action, and no sex, though there are many pages about Nathaniel being a stripper and some Unfortunate Implications regarding the kid Matthew. All the characters but Anita, Micah, and Nathaniel are human, and they could be replaced with full humans with no effect on the plot, such as it isn't. I do not know who LKH wrote this book for. Perhaps she is trying to alienate the last of her fans.

(I hope it's okay to post this here.)
