The New Book



It'll be almost a whole year until my next novel from Touchstone hits the book shelves, but since I've recently finished all edits, I thought I'd give it a quick mention now. (Technically, I expect one more round of routine copy edits, but for all intents and purposes, it's in the can.)
For months, I've been referring to the novel as Bad Alchemy, but my publishers have provided me with a new title: Vampire A Go-Go. We're hoping to tap into that sweet sweet Vampire cash. While Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse was a more satirical effort, Vampire A Go-Go leans more toward parody, poking some playful fun at the find-the-treasure/secret type stories like Davinci Code and National Treasure. Also, some fun with the horror genre. Of all my novels, this is the one I would most likely call a "romp."


I'm now eagerly awaiting to see what they come up with for a cover. Fingers crossed for something spiffy.

So you've done crime, post-apocalypse and horror. What's next? You gonna give us a nice space opera? A WESTERN?

Damn yer versatile hide, but looking forward to this next one.

Can't wait for it! I'm not much into vampire stories, but I don't like science fiction much either and I loved Go Go Girls.

Regarding the cover, I have an image of a Les Edwards-style vampire hottie (see the link) in black cloak and red go-go boots.

Damn. I hate it when titles change. Bad Alchemy was sooo right. Vampire A Go-Go? I didn't know it HAD vampires!

Vampire A Go-Go? I liked Bad Alchemy, but the new title's pretty cool too. Will it have go-go girls in it? There just aren't enough books about go-go girls published these days. Either way, I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Do you have a tentative release date? I just powered through Go-Go and thoroughly enjoyed it. Any chance you could create an early release mailing list?
