What’s Up?

At the Deadline Dames Wednesday, I blogged about my love for French director Luc Besson films and how La Femme Nikita changed my writing.  For my birthday, I watched a recent film of his I’d missed called District B13. OMG, as Dame Lilith Saintcrow can attest, I found the film full of lovely, agile action.  It’s good! Fun! I can hardly wait for the sequel!

In personal news, I’m making major headway in the unpacking and settling in phase of the move. As I said, I have my writing area set up and as I type this, I’m settled in my wonderful, rocking office chair and looking at a beautiful fairy lamp-a gift from my sister years ago.  Yes, that’s Poe. He wants to be EVERYWHERE I am.

I plan to take a full five or so hours for writing only tomorrow. I. Can’t. Wait. Writing is my world and it’s been all kinds of tilted off its axis lately!  Back to the grind. The lovely, welcome grind. I have a short story that could possibly get picked up in something soon. No details yet…

So, two last things. One, the Mammoth Book of Special Ops Romance has been spotted on bookshelves in the UK! If any of you see it, get pics and send!  It should be out in the US in May. 

Also, I have this demon friend I sometimes call Bob.  During the move, I strapped him into the passenger seat of my vehicle and talked to him at stop lights to freak out other drivers. Hey! A girl has gotta have fun-even during the rough stuff.  Someone out there took a pic or video on their phone. I could end up on Youtube.


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    Lol-love Bob. How did you get a life-size demon friend? I bet he’s great at guarding your house 🙂

    It’s only his upper body, but he’s a blast to place around the house during Halloween. He serves punch or plays the piano. Or just looks over the room like this.

    I found him at one of those big Halloween stores that go up in the fall.
