Blood and Mint Chocolates is now contracted with Freya's Bower! [Oct. 3rd, 2008|06:06 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , ]
[Current Mood | excited]

I am pleased to announce that Blood and Mint Chocolates, a standalone short story within the Dark Moon series, has just been offered a contract with Freya’s Bower.


The story is set after Blood of the Dark Moon and just before its upcoming sequel, Shadows of the Dark Moon.


Here’s a quick blurb:


    Merideth, a vampire and librarian, spends most of her nights researching and book collecting for Clan Gladius within the Order of the Dragon and the Rose. Much to her surprise, the head of Clan Gladius unexpectedly presents her with a luxurious gift: a trip to stay at Hotel Paradisio at Crystal Island!</p>

    The heat is on at the island resort under moonlit skies and palm trees. The tropical heat quickly transforms into a scorching hot time that will be seared into her memory forever when she runs into her long time crush, Kalia. Merideth is presented with a gift from a goddess which allows her to experience in reality what she only could before in dreams. But can their passion survive the intrigue and potential dangers that await them, or will it only last as long as her vacation?


A hot lesbian romance and occult intrigue sets the stage for the next book. The world of the Order of the Dragon and the Rose is about to change, and this story is a small sliver of what’s to come.

Oct and Nov events have been posted, plus updates for the Dark Moon series! [Sep. 30th, 2008|07:45 am]
[Tags|, , , , , ]
[Current Mood | busy]

Check it out: http://www.adriannebrennan.com/events.html


November’s will be the one to be under high amounts of change no doubt, but do tune in to October! I have one booksigning taking place on Oct 26 in Cambridge, MA. Stop on by and get the last of the out of print copies of Blood of the Dark Moon while supplies last and before its re-release! You never know…could be worth lots of money someday. ;)


Also, Oct 1 is busy, busy, busy for me. I’ll be not on one or two but THREE loop chats throughout the day! Do stop on by any of them and find out the latest in the Dark Moon series.


I also want to give a heads-up: just about finishing editing Blood and Mint Chocolates, and Shadows of the Dark Moon is also underway. Blood and Mint Chocolates takes place in between the two books and has a few important plot details amidst lots of really sexy vampire girl action! Shadows of the Dark Moon is where the battle between the Order of the Dragon and the Rose and the Order of the Golden Cross really heats up…along with Amanda and Jesse’s relationship.


In the meantime, Blood of the Dark Moon is now in the editing stage with my editor. Once that finishes up, we’ll have some idea of its release date.


So, stay tuned, watch this space, you get the idea. ;)

One of the many things I wish to accomplish as a writer [Sep. 28th, 2008|01:22 am]
[Current Mood | aggravated]

Item #1,013: ram it through thick people's skulls about the realities of sexuality versus the myths.

This is what I received in my inbox from Okcupid tonight:

But if you're bi-sexual, you have to say "seeing _2_ someones", right? ;-)

My reply:

"Um, WRONG. Bisexual means that you don't people based on gender. You date PEOPLE. It doesn't mean I am dating two people at the same time. Whisky tango foxtrot."

I really despise the following bullshit in regards to bisexuality/pansexuality:

1) We are non-monogamous.
2) We will cheat.
3) If we're dating someone of one gender, we will "need" the other gender.

I don't date genders and genitalia. I date people. And I'm monogamous to boot. How hard is this for people to comprehend, and why precisely?

Calling all local artists and businesses! Here’s a promo opportunity for you. [Sep. 9th, 2008|10:44 am]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Are you looking to bring some business to your shop or craft of choice? Every booksigning I do, I look for local artists who wish to promote their wares and use a donated item that they themselves made which is then given away as a prize. Gift certificates to your shop are also acceptable. :) </p>

People are entered to win when they buy a copy of my book on CD. I usually offer 2-3 prizes per booksigning, and it helps to get some good cross-promo going.


Last booksigning I had a gorgeous framed photograph and a beautifully made beaded choker. At Mass Morgue 2008, I’d be looking for anyone local or willing to mail me an item that they wish to have entered as a prize. I also request flyers, business cards, and anything pertinent that I can put on display with your donated prize so others can see where it came from.


If you are at all interested, email me at adrianne(at)adriannebrennan(dot)com or reply to this post with your contact info.

[Current Mood | sore]

I went to work this morning to see people dressed like it was a combo between Halloween and Mardi Gras--minus the flashing of tits for beads.

One gal was wearing shamrock beads however--along with a green outfit and this huge felt hat that was shaped like a beer mug with fluffy white cotton on top to resemble foam. Written on the front was "Happy St Patrick's Day."

Omgs.

Over here it's apparently a citywide holiday. Some businesses will actually give the employees off--others take the day off. Some people will start going in and celebrating as early as the morning hours in order to get into the pubs and whatnot.

I think they're nuts. O_O I'm horribly Irish (my mom has like four names and her maiden name is an "O'" name), but...wow. Some people get REALLY into this holiday, like above and beyond the call of duty.

Of course, being vegan I didn't get corned beef and cabbage for lunch. But I had a veggie burger and a side salad with a nice pinot noir--which the waitress managed to knock over and spill all over the counter, my pants, and my scarf. Thankfully both were black. :P

And that was my St Patrick's Day. Right now I am battling massive quantities of indigestion which I can only blame on nerves, lack of sleep, and Monday, so I will be taking something strong to combat it and head to bed early.

I loves you all.
