I’m in the ninth circle of sciatica hell.

It’s messing with my sex life and it’s making me cranky.

It is marginally better today. At least I’m not suffering the pain of a million exploding stars when I sneeze anymore. I can also get in and out of bed without needing my husband to help me, thus making me feel as though I’m about 95 years old.

But I do smell like Ben Gay. And I’m wearing my rumpled PJ bottoms, slipper socks and sweatshirt from yesterday. And I haven’t brushed my hair or washed my face. I am totally HAWT. Fear me.

And you will only pry the Tylenol and my heating pad out of my fingers when I am dead and cold. Tylenol and a heating pad ROCK.

So, since I’m all bolted in place for the day, I thought I write up a FAQ of sorts. These are some answers to some frequently asked questions:

1. Will Rowan from Ordinary Charm ever get a book?

I do plan to write her story. I have a few other things in the pipeline first, but I have always wanted to explain what was happening to her while her sister, Serena, was off hunting down demons and having hot witch sex with Cole.

2. Will Killian from A Change of Season ever get a book?

I don’t actually plan to write his story at this time. I wrote five books in the world the Seasons of Pleasure series was set and I got a little burned out on it. I needed to move on to other places/series.

That doesn’t mean that one day I might not get up a wild hair and decide to tell his story, but there’s no plan for that right now. In my head he went off after the end of A Change of Season, found the perfect woman and settled down.

3. What’s going to happen to Dray from Blood of the Raven and Blood of the Damned? Will he get a book?

I really want to write his story. Obviously, I have much on my plate, but I enjoy Drayden very much. I think because he’s a redeemable bad guy and I LOVE my bad guys…esp when they’re redeemable. At the moment he’s in a not-very-nice place, paying for his past sins. Hopefully I can get him out of there and tell his side of things one day.

4. When’s Adam getting a book?

He’s next up. I do plan to start his just as soon as I can. It’s this little matter of too many books to write and not enough time. He’s on the docket, though.

5. When does your first Berkley Sensation book come out and what is it about?

The release month has been switched around a little. Right now it’s scheduled for an August 2007 release. I’ve been saying “summer of 2007”.

Witch Fire features Mira, a witch who never knew she was a witch. Mira has some extraordinarly powers that a group of warlocks want to steal for themselves. To thwart their attempts, Jack, a fire witch, is sent in by the Coven to act as a bodyguard to Mira.

Jack has many secrets and a past that intersects with Mira’s. They also share an explosive sexual attraction that complicates just about everything.

Obviously, that’s not the official blurb. I’m just blathering on. One day I’ll have an official blurb and it will be SO MUCH better than one. The book is a paranormal romance and it’s spicy hot.

6. When does Blood of the Damned [or other title] come out in print?

I have absolutely no information on this at all. If you want to help get Blood of the Damned out quicker, write to Ellora’s Cave and tell them so. 🙂 service@ellorascave.com

In the meantime, check out all the titles I do have in print.

7. Do you feel like killing someone because of the sciatica?

With a powerful will. (Okay, I just threw that one in there.)

8. Where do you get your ideas from?

Oh, god…everywhere and nowhere. I come up with the characters first. I define them, get to know them. Then they tell me their stories. Sounds crazy? Yes, yes…I know. At least I’m not hearing any voices in my head…yet.

Thank you so much for all your emails and comments. I savor each and every one. 🙂
