News!

 
I have been bottling this up for almost two weeks, and trust me, it's been difficult to stay quiet. BUT I just received the go-ahead from my agent, so now I can share.
 
I'm going to be in an anthology with authors Melissa Marr, Vicki Pettersson, new author Jocelynn Drake, and...pause to squee....Kim Harrison!!!
 
It will be published by the Eos line of HarperCollins, tentative release date May 09, and it will be an adult urban fantasy anthology. I am SO excited about this, for several reasons. One, the anthology itself was an idea conceived by Melissa one day when we were saying how it would be fun to be in a book together. Then we mentioned it to Vicki Pettersson, who also thought it sounded fun. Then Melissa presented it to our agent Rachel. Fast-forward to Rachel pitching the anthology to Diana Gill at Eos. Diana liked the idea. Kim Harrison agreed to headline it. Boo-yah! Done deal.
 
So, I get to be in a novel with four of my favorite authors (and if you haven't heard of Jocelynn yet, you will once her book comes out. I got a sneak peek and it's fabulous). Plus, two of those authors are friends (love to M and Vic), and getting to do a book with friends is the coolest thing of all.
 
Oh, what will my short story consist of? Well, I'm thinking of doing a story in Bones's point of view, set in New Orleans a year or so before he met Cat, during one of his bounty hunts. I have a lot of information in my head about Bones that I'd love to put on paper, and it would give me a chance to show the world through his eyes. Not a bad view, eh? ;-)
 
*pops cork* Cyber-champagne on me, folks!

Congrats Jeaniene!! That sounds like so much fun!

And a Bones POV??!! *squees* That is more than cool!! YAY!! I might just have to make a Bones icon now!

And that reminds me...I have some questions for you...which reminds me -- The idea for the fansite is still floating around in my head...I've just had noooo time at all to do anything with it! But don't think I've forgotten!!

Did you by any chance cast Bones and Cat? If you did can you share them with us? The book cover is a great image of Cat...but did you have any actresses/models you had in mind for her character?

Thanks for the congrats!

I actually don't have an actor/model for Cat or Bones that I could say, "here's a good likeness" and show you a picture. They're a blend of people, plus my imagination.

A Bones story?!!

Damn, how do you ladies do this? I didn't think the anthology could possibly be better than what Melissa said on her LJ... and now you taunt us with a BONES STORY?!

...can I preorder now?

I've been nagging her already to write it so I can have it now. :)

We crit each other, so the idea of doing this together is just awesome.

Bones has been teasing me with stories in my head for a while now. It's about time he puts out! ;-)

I've been wanting to write a story through Bones's POV for a while now. Glad to know I'm not the only one who'd want to read it! :)

I can't wait to read the other stories in this anthology! Maybe you can have Bones meet up with a really cool chick named Vicki (whom he doesn't kill, of course). You do remember I called dibs, right?

Back off there, cutie. I'm pretty sure I saw him first :)

This will probably be the only book I'm in where I don't worry about selling. Look at these other names. I'll be buying it myself!

It's not luck, Jocelynn: it's your writing skills. In negotiations, we suggested inviting you :)
