Am I the only one who wants to see this movie? (Plus contest updates, news…)
Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

It’s such an odd idea—Abraham Lincoln killing vampires. I want to know if they weave in real history with the story, or if they ignore it and write their own. Of course, I want to see The Avengers much, much more, but this one appeals to my sense of humor. What about you? Will you watch it in theaters? Wait for it to come out on DVD? Or will you give it a skip altogether?

News, kinda…

I can’t give you the details because they aren’t set in stone just yet, but I have two book deals in the making right now. I have an offer from one major publisher to write the first two books in a series set in southern Louisiana where some kinky shit happens and some extremely heavy duty kinds of guys like to play. And I have a two-book offer from a newer major publisher to write the first two books in an ongoing paranormal series that features a heroine with a drinking problem and her cop ex-husband. I know, that’s all so vague, but until the contracts are signed, I’d like to keep it that way. Just know they are full-length novels, so you’ll hear a lot of whining from me for over the next months. :)

    Congrats and vent away all you want. If you don’t vent it effects you and your writing….maybe not your I don’t know but I do know if I get frustrated it shows in the writing.

    Oh no! I can’t wait to see this one. From the trailers it looks great!

    Of course, I will be there opening day for The Avengers, not at midnight but for the matinee! 8)

    Great news, I’m excited for you. Can’t wait to hear more, I love to read your stories. :}
    Now about Abraham Lincoln and the Vampires, on the fence with this one, but he Avangers, Hell yes! Men in tight fitting leather and snug tights make for a great movie.

    The movie is an odd combination. I might rent it, I am curious as to who the vampires are!!

    I am so excited about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I am thinking popcorn and soda kind of movie! “Heavy duty kinds of guys like to play.” You have my attention. Congrats!

    Wow–huge congrats, DD! Love that you’ve got so much in the works (not that you’re ever, EVER sitting idle, you busy bee!) Not sure about the movie–definitely a quirky premise!!
