I’ve got some good news and some bad news.
Good News: my post-redaction novel has been sent off for the first round of editing.
Bad News: Despite the brilliant suggestions offered here, the next book won’t be called any of them. Although, I do reserve the right to use them in the future, because I really liked them:-)
Why didn’t I go with the suggestions? Well, the long and short of it is that the book decided it’s title. There was a line that my ‘Viders kept repeating which was–conceived in blood, born in blood and bathed in blood.
And given the rather gruesome turn the book took, that phrase became the title (And no, Mom, I don’t need therapy–I know the difference between fiction and reality, most of the time;P).
Who are the ‘Viders? They’re your friendly neighborhood cannibals. Just ask ’em, they’ll invite you over for dinner:-)
So there you have it, the thorn among the roses but…
That also means, I’m subliminally planning at least 2 more books in the series and maybe a fourth with many of the same characters.
