Seeking inspiration

Well have been busy of late with other commitments (including watching my precious godson at his Christmas show - so cute!) but also trying to polish the book. Slower than I expected but still going forward. And what helps keep me going - well having the reward of reading only one chapter of a book for every chapter I polish of my manuscript. The book of choice ATM is Anna Campbell's Claiming the Courtesan. Great read.....

I even entered the first paragraph competition that agent Nathan Bransford had on his blog. Didn't make the cut but that's cool. I did enjoy reading the 6 finalists work and there was a range of genre and style. What really surprised me was some of the narky comments people made. Nathan has left the voting up to the commentators on his blog and instead of supporting those who had become finalists, there were some 'well I'm not voting because I hated them' type comments. Well sorry, you don't like them, don't comment!  Sorry but it annoyed the hell out of me. 

Pretty soon I will have to come up with my goals for 2009.  Eeeek!

But to help me delay...I mean inspire me, here are some things that I have come across on the net.

The next movie in the Terminator stories comes out in May, called Terminator Salvation with Christian Bale as John Connor. Woo Hoo!


From You Tube

SciFiGuy has the following video about book covers in the paranormal romance market field with the trend for tatts, weapons, and classic poses. Interesting - though the artwork is fantastic despite these 'trends'.




Also one of my favourite television series ever, Farscape, will be having webisodes made but no mention when.  Can't wait for that one.

Also lastly but not least is that fellow Bootcamper Hannah has SOLD two books to Harlequin Romance!!!! She will be writing under the name of Nikki Logan and her first book is due out January 2010. Can't wait! Check her out her fantastic website, A Romance with Nature
Fantastic Hannah, I mean Nikki!! 

Yia!
