Hi all! Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm an avid reader of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Some of my faves are:

Laurell K. Hamilton
Rachel Caine
Kim Harrison
Jim Butcher

I'm also a writer, and my first book will be published next year. It too is an urban fantasy because, well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Looking forward to discussing books with you all!

Thanks!!

The one that's coming out first is about a succubus who's trying to juggle dating a human while also figuring out what kind of creature could be attacking her immortal friends. It has kind of a humorous voice and involves supernatural creatures doing silly things, like commute to work.

*laugh*

I love the idea of supernatural creatures trying to drive to work. What kinds of jobs do they have?

Wacky things...bookstore worker, plastic surgeon, etc. They do these along with their infernal occupations of buying souls and corrupting mankind. Honestly, they're not always very good at their hellish jobs which (to me) makes them hilarious. :)

I was just reading about your writing. Very cool. What kind of daily schedule do you have to write? Is it structured or just when the muse beckons?

They're bad at getting souls?

*laugh*

What happens? Do they get close to getting the soul and then realize that they don't really want _that_ soul?

Thanks. I write daily, usually at night. I studied journalism and so I can just jump into writing instead of waiting for the muse (though if she shows up, I'll offer her some coffee and try to tempt her to stay ;).

How about you? What's your writing schedule like?

Heh. Can't say too much more about the book--gotta leave some suspense for when it comes out! :)

I try to write every day, usually in shifts. I get up, write for a couple hours, eat lunch, then go back to it for a bit, go to the gym, etc. When I'm hot into doing a first draft, I can go as much as 8 hours a day. I'm in hand therapy for repetitive stress injuries from all that typing, so I'm supposed to keep it in moderation. I try...sort of...but it's hard to do when I feel I MUST get those ideas out.
