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.

I couldn't resist snarking the new novella, and brought it over here to share. (It's also posted on my own LJ.)

Summary:
There is a lot that is not in this one.
Characters who do NOT appear: Richard, Micah, Cynric, Jean-Claude, Dev, Nicky.
However, there is also no real plot.  As usual, it's all about Anita.

She has, however, made Cynric 19 (so now he's legal) but he's still a senior in high school.

Enjoy!

PS: Mods, I didn't tag because I couldn't remember if you wanted us to or if you would.  My apologies if I made the wrong choice!

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.

How do you know you love someone and it's not just about the hot sex? The first time they're sick, yeah you're disappointed, but you're happy to take care of them, happy to know that they trust you enough to let you be there for them. Sometimes just holding someone's hand is more intimate than intercourse, because you know everything that went into that moment of trust. There's a lot of, I will take care of you, in real love.

People keep asking me what is the secret to Jon and I still being totally besotted with each other after fourteen years a couple, and about to celebrate thirteen years married. Well, here's part of the secret.

Marriage for me must be a continuous dating, a seduction that never ends. Anything less is a disservice to myself and those I love.

I think I need to do a blog about the definitions of , bad boys, and nice guys, because the answers from the last post show that we can mean very different things with those two terms. But tonight I'll be writing after dinner to finish a Merry scene, and tomorrow has to be devoted to page proofs of Affliction, one last chance to go over it before it heads to mass market paperback.

13-15 pages for several days in a row on the new Merry book, A Shiver of Light. Did 7 earlier today, planned on going back to work after gym and dinner, but my brain is tired. *laughs*

I'm glad so many of you liked my "If I was a Time Lord" outfit. thanks for all the compliments! I will put up links to where I got all the pieces of the outfit, was going to do it tonight, but if I'm too tired to write, I'm too tired to do that tonight.

I think making my wisdom roll tonight means going to bed early-ish. I'm writing a Kitto scene first thing tomorrow. Depending on the page count on that, then a Galen/Doyle scene. And no, they aren't all sex scenes. *rolls eyes at you* And if there is slash out there with either of the three men mentioned together, please, for the love of Goddess, don't tell me. *runs away to bed*

11 pages for the day and I'm brain fried, but in a good way. I know the book is going well, because yesterday I had to remind myself, that I could have sex, I hadn't just given birth to multiples, that was Merry. Whenever the lines blur that much I know the magic is happening, just got to put my ass in a chair long enough to type it all out. *laughs* Sounds so simple, right? I wish.
