Any hope I had of doing NaNoWriMo is really fading distantly into the background as I fail to write brief blog posts about the books I read (among other things I fail to write).
God, is there anything more boring than a blogger apologizing for not blogging? So, new plan for the short term: little posts, mostly about comics I've been reading.
Just discovered Hexed, which is amazing and I can't wait to read the new arc, The Harlot and the Thief. In the first book, though, Lucifer (Luci Jenifer) is an art thief with supernatural talents. Her mentor, Val, gets her jobs, but she's also got her own past, and her own troubles. A former client is unsatisfied with her service, and if she doesn't do some nasty things for him, Val could be in great danger.
Lucifer is smart, capable, and usually a step ahead of the game--but not always. She's extremely competent, but she not only has flaws--she makes mistakes, even careless ones. But she's not the only super-competent one around--I want to spend so much more time in this world. So much so that I'm going to overlook the fact that she's in her underwear on the cover. That was completely unnecessary, guys.
Anyway, it turns out there's a novel, too, and I'm going to try not to get my hopes too high, but I'm already very excited. I'm also planning to read Michael Alan Nelson's Cthulu comics, because I think he might be amazing. Let's find out, shall we?
