We have a guest blogger tonight—the wonderful and irrepressible JADE LEE! Jade has written the fifth installment of the Crimson City series—SEDUCED BY CRIMSON—and it promises to rock the house. So please give her a warm welcome!
Hello everyone! It�s Jade Lee visiting the awesome Marjorie Liu�s website and dropping in a blog hello! I have to say, that Marjorie is someone I really wanted to hate. Compared to me, she�s younger, prettier (much!), and higher on the lists that I am right now. Unfortunately, she�s also too nice to hate�damn her! And�(and this is key) she�s a huge fan of Joss Wedon and Firefly/Serenity. Ergo�she�s a fabulous person who should not be hated. You see my conundrum. Ah well, I suppose I�ll just have to like her because she is awesome.
Now on to stuff about me! SEDUCED BY CRIMSON is finally OUT!!!!! Sounds like it�s out of the closet, and given that it�s highly sensual, perhaps that�s appropriate. In any event, Liz Maverick and Marjorie laid the foundation with books 1 and 2. They introduced the world to an incredible place that I got to play in. Patti O�Shea and Carolyn Jewel deepened out the universe with a great deal of detail about Orcus demon-world. Then came my turn to close the demon gate into Crimson City (LA). I have to say, it was quite a challenge. It was also the most fun I�ve had writing a book since�.hmmmm�since ever. Sex and action adventure. Tantric philosophy plus action. (Tantrism involves the attainment of Heaven with the aid of sexual energy.) Kick ass baddies plus sexual adventure. What�s not to love?
Yes, I�m a nervous wreck watching the reviews and the lists. I don�t want to let the rest of the team down. So far so good. In fact, Seduced by Crimson got an RT Top Pick and www.romrevtoday.com loved it. So between the two, the reviews are on par with the amazing Crimson City team. But will people actually LIKE the book? (Please, please, please?) I don�t know�go out, buy the thing, then e-mail me what you think. firstname.lastname@example.org Really and truly, I need to know. I�m obsessive that way. If I don�t get e-mail from someone other than cheap pharmaceuticals, I get really depressed. Or you could just e-mail me and say, no way, no how are you buying that book. That would make me very sad, but at least I�d get e-mail. Hmmmm�another conundrum. Nope, I�ve made up my mind. You must choose option 1: buy the book, read it, then tell me what you think�good or bad. It�s the only way to go. And the only choice for a true Wedon-lover.
Hopping topics�raise your hand if you�ve bought the Serenity DVD, soundtrack, and script. (Yes, I have them all, plus the Firefly series on DVD. All of it purchased at full price no less. And I gave them for Christmas presents too!) You must now e-mail me so we can obsess about Joss�s INCREDIBLE TALENT�and how he is at least on par with the awesome Marjorie�
BARNES AND NOBLE!
