I just wanted to let you know that I finished my edits on Vampiro do Brasil and have sent it off to my editor, Jessica Sawa who is fantastic! I'm also waiting on the final version of the cover and will do a huge cover reveal party on facebook between Thanksgiving and Christmas sometime so I'll keep you updated. Please sign up for my newsletter for the latest updates! I'm so excited! I can't wait and I'm especially excited that it will be available in Portuguese for all my friends in Brasil so they can read it too since it's set in Brasil! Once I get the edits back, I'm going to start translating it while I wait for the covers. I've never done this before so it's all very exciting for me! I miss Brasil so much!!! I only lived there for 6 months in 1991 but it feels just like yesterday! I still have an entire box of stuff I brought back from Brasil that I was looking through the other day. Ah, the memories! My only regret is that I broke my foot and had to return before Carnival which is bigger and better than Mardi Gras in New Orleans I'm told. One day I'll get back there. I just recently connected with a bunch of my school friends from 1991 which was a ton of fun! I know Christiane, the girl the book is based on is also excited for the book. She said she'd always wanted to be a vampire and my book is making her just that so she can't wait for the release of the Portuguese version as she doesn't speak English! I tried to incorporate as much of her life that I could in the book...sometimes using names that related to people for her without even knowing.
My next project, might, be a script as it would be a great movie! The story is already written so I just need to turn it into a movie script. I have a great friend, Thom Futrell who is a screenwriter and said he'd help me which I just might have to take him up on it. It's a vampire (of course) horror story, also set in Brasil (see a theme here?) or I may start book two of Vampiro do Brasil...yes, I ended it on a cliffhanger...sorry to those that don't like that but I enjoy it and hopefully gets you to buy both books! I just don't know how I'm going to top book 1! My mind is working overtime so my sleeping schedule is crazy as I can't turn my brain off. Sometimes I have to get up in the middle of the night to write down dreams I've had to include in the story. Ahhhhh, the life of an Author!!!!
