Okay, so I have a fun announcement to make. Katie MacAlister, Marianne Mancusi, Lisa Cach and I are going to be doing a valentines anthology together. My Zombie Valentine will be released in January 2010. These will be love stories where zombies play prominent roles. Everyone deserves love, right?
Chris Keesler at Dorchester came up with the title, which by the way, completely cracked me up when I first heard it. I haven't spent a lot of time with Chris, but I've talked to him enough to know he has a warped sense of humor. This proves it.
In my story, Gentlemen Prefer Voodoo, a lonely New Orleans voodoo shop owner decides she's had enough romantic disappointments. She wants a relationship, but only with mister right. So she uses her voodoo magic to call the perfect man for her. Only she should have been more specific because her ideal mate died 198 years ago. When a sexy, well-spoken zombie gentleman shows up at her door, things get interesting.
It was a blast to write this story because I could play with a completely different world - new characters, new creatures, new problems. The cover is still in the works, but I'll post it when it arrives.
