I’m home! I’m back home!
Oh, my friends, it’s been too long. I’m sorry I’ve neglected you, but things have been insane up in here. Between the travel and the book promo for BLUE-BLOODED VAMP I’ve been too scattered to sit down and write a blog post. Until now …
I considered doing a big wrap up of all the trips and stuff, but it would be a freaking book of its own. I have seen and done many amazing things since we last met. So I decided to share some metrics, some links and some general comments. Here goes:
METRICS OF AWESOME
7– Number of days spent in France
3–Number of books I have out in France.
20–Number of times I stopped in my tracks and thought, “Holy shit, I’m in France because I wrote some crazy books and people like them.”
2 gallons–Amount of wine it feels like I consumed in a week.
2 seconds–Amount of time it would take to convince me to move to France.
95 — Number of people who attended my book signing with Kevin Hearne at A Real Bookstore
11ty–Awesome points I earned by drinking beer out of a horn in front of an audience.
1–Number of rounds we bought for said attendees. Also, the number of pregnant bellies Kevin signed with a Sharpie.
9–Number of days spent in Costa Rica
2–Number of sloths I’ve seen in the last week. Also, snakes.
8– Number of injuries experience by our group on Costa Rica, including a chipped tooth, a black eye, a shin kicked by a horse. We’re totally hard core, people.
4–Number of adventurous activities we engaged in, including: Kayaking through a mangrove, horseback riding to a waterfall, surf lessons and zip lining.
I have pictures of my time in France up on my Flickr page, here. Soon I hope to have some embarrassing shots of me communing with nature in Costa Rica up, too.
Okay, so that’s a small snapshot of all the cool stuff lately. Some of you might also remember that I recently had a book come out. BLUE-BLOODED VAMP is getting lots of cool praise from fans of the series, and I’m delighted that so many of you feel satisfied by the conclusion.
“Wells concludes her terrific UF series in spectacular fashion, ensuring fans will be completely satisfied.” 4 1/2 stars, Top Pick! –Romantic Times Book Reviews magazine
“This series will go down as one of the best paranormal fantasy sagas of all time and Sabina Kane will be remembered as one of paranormal fantasy’s most iconic heroines.” — Paul Goat Allen at the BN.com Explorations blog
Next week I intend to return to my regular Craft Thursday posts. In the meantime, I’m going full steam ahead on the secret project. I really hope I can tell you guys about this soon, but until then, know that I am working on something new and super awesome for you.
Now. Tell me what’s new with you.
