Friday Wrap Up


Hey Gang,
What a week it has been. I'm still trying to recoup from L.A. and I'm not quite there yet.

I have good news and sad news.

I'll start with the sad news. It's the end of CHUCK and it breaks my heart. I know it's time for the show to go, but it's always been one of my favorites. I love me some Zach Levy, and come one that's one friggin' amazing cast. I will tell you the ending is bittersweet and I cried like a big 'ole baby. I'm not ashamed to say it. The show goes out on a high note, and harkens back to its early days with a great mix of funny and sweet, with a bit of drama and spy stuff. And hello, this show had one of the best love stories on TV. Oh, I'm getting teary again, so enough of that.

There are some new series coming up that you should check out. First is Key & Peel starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. The show is a mix of standup and skits. I talked with them on the phone a month or so ago and they made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe. Same thing happened two weeks ago when they were at TCA. Check them out on Comedy Central Wed., Jan 31 at 10:30 Eastern. I was so excited about Luck (Sunday, HBO) with the lovely Dustin Hoffman. It's by David Milch, who did Deadwood and NYPD Blue, and will appeal to a great many people. I'm not one of them. I have trouble with shows where all the characters are either unlikable, stupid or mean. I did like Hoffman but he's kind of doing a riff on his Rainman days. Spartacus Vengeance begins tonight (Friday) on Starz. Same folks, same kind of stories. But who doesn't like some naked gladiators? I mean, really.

On the good news side, I have a new book deal with Harlequin Blaze. I'm going to do two more Marine books in the vein of Model Marine. In fact, Rafe from Model Marine gets his own story. All I can tell you about that one is that it is set in Fiji. And you know how I love me some tropical heat!

And I've started to work on the first Southern Steampunk novel with Maisy. You guys, if you loved my Bronwyn books, I swear you will love Maisy. She's so tough and kick butt, but she makes me laugh. The novel comes out in October 2012, but there's a novella in a steampunk anthology which will debut July 2012. I can't wait for you guys to read her story. Think Sherlock Holmes meets Supernatural meets Wild Wild West. :)
