Not your typical bride....

Meet Daria MacClellan, Indie film critic--big, beautiful, rebellious and most comfortable in a monster movie T-shirt and blue jeans. When she meets the man she wants to marry she never expects her anorexic, control freak older sister to be planning the wedding. Can Daria survive the horror of pinkness that just won't quit? Or will she become The Bride of the Living Dead?

Don't look back....oops too late!

I'll be dusting off the time machine (well, I already did, but that's how time travel works) and heading back 25 years at Stacy Juba's blog. The post is for Monday but it's already up today (Sunday). Did I say,"that's how time travel works?" Oh, yeah, I guess I did.

Book Blog Tour Progress Report

I'm about half way through the virtual events listed below, and it's been fun so far ranging all over the map with topics from writing to food. Heidi M. Thomas's blog had a guest immediately following me who had written about Tennessee Walking Horses and I couldn't help commenting on that. Nothing to do with my book, or my life now, but a fond memory. When my schedule cools down a little I will list some of the places that aren't mentioned on the schedule, but one that comes to mind immediately is Book Birth Announcement on Body Impolitic

Adventures with the Bride in Book Blog Tourland

The official publication date for Bride of the Living Dead is June 1, but our first event is in mid-May. Comments or questions during any of these blog events are warmly welcomed!

Live as of May 14 an interview and Shōn Bacon’s review are posted at ChickLitGurrl: high on LATTES & WRITING )! Shōn, author-editor-educator-everywoman posed some thoughtful questions and reviewed Bride of the Living Dead This was a fun interview and I am happy that Bride got her CLG stamp of approval!

June 1 I’ll kick off the month of June with a visit to Marian Allen’s blog where I understand we can talk about “This, that and a whole lot of the other” (sounds like fun) at Marian Allen This also happens to fall on "Foodie Tuesday" which can't be bad!

June 3 brings a visit with Heidi M. Thomas, journalist, editor, writing teacher and author of Cowgirl Dream, at her blog HeidiWriter

June 9 We’ll have a Pearlsong Conversation via telephone at 12:00 Eastern time (9:00 a.m. Pacific—I’m bringing along a cup of coffee) with Pearlsong Press founder, Peggy Elam, Ph.D, perhaps some other Pearlsong authors. Everyone is welcome to call in and chat, we usually have some fun. Click this link Pearlsong Conversations for where and how to call.

June 17 I’ll visit Helen Ginger, freelance novel editor, who provides an informational and interactive blog for writers. The ideal place to talk about revisions, a subject dear to my heart. Gotta love Helen’s blog title Straight from Hel

June 23 and it's time to visit Dana Fredsti, self-described as, “mystery novel, short story and screenplay writer, B-movie actress (okay, C movie actress), zombie aficionado, exotic and domestic feline advocate, swordfighter, wine lover and beach glass junkie.” Sounds like fun. Not that anyone's counting, but I think she has more cats than I do and not everyone can say that! My formerly feral felines approve of her cat work (did that sound wrong?)

June 28 I’ll visit Stacy Juba’s blog Stacy Juba, she’s a former journalist with more than a dozen writing awards to her credit and her theme (coincidentally the title of her mystery novels) Twenty-Five Years Ago Today. Fortunately I’ve got my 1985 calendar with notes!

Let's get this Bride on the road....

As I begin to count the weeks and days until the June publication of Bride of the Living Dead I've been communicating with bloggers who may review the book or host me on the Blog Book Tour. Heidi M. Thomas, author of Cowgirl Dreams and the Heidiwriter blog in the Blog List on the right suggested starting a blog just for the book.

Wait a minute, I already did that. This very blog I'm posting to. So I decided to try to come over here more often and post the latest news on the book as it happens.

I don't know why I didn't think of this, but thanks, Heidi.

If I don't get too long-winded this could work!

Starting out with Bride blogging

My usual way of doing things involves false starts, mistakes and uses of the words "eek!" and "oops!" Aren't you glad I didn't go into medicine? Bride of the Living Dead will be in print in June 2010 and I've been blogging about the preparations on Live Journal. Is this blog necessary? Is it and oops or an eek?

I'm still figuring that out. Now that I finally posted the June '09 post, how about the Jan. 10 post? Seriously I know my way around a fictional plot with waaay more assurance than I do a blog.
