Now that the final volume in Aurora Smythe's Molly Sheldon series has been published, I thought it would be a good time to review the whole thing. I ordered new copies of all three books (so as to get the brand-new matching cover art) and have been working through them all week. Or, as my partner put it last night, "Are you still reading those Vampire Yoga Instructor books?"
After the last post here, I ruefully tweeted that my early New Year's resolution is to blog about other topics than how bad I am at blogging. To that end, I've decided to try writing a short post every day based on a prompt (starting with the ones here, so long as they're any good). Today's is very easy: to write about three blog posts I've read and loved this week, and encourage you to read them.
Last night, David asked me for some ideas for a video game. I did not have any. Then I dreamed an entire concept overnight, and here it is.
Cross-posted from Tumblr, someone else's thoughts on vampires as a metaphor for the oppressed vs. the privileged, and my musing on what this means for the novel I'm currently writing. Other interesting reflections on the same blog post: this piece on the vampire's historic status as stand in for the aristocracy, plague and foreigners, this piece about its shift to representing the marginalalised and creative in the 1970s/80s.
