Car go vrooom

Here's something I've been thinking about. I'm reading a book, and I'm getting little quetionzies in my head. The biggest of which is:

If you were a powerful vampire with a sprawling mansion and gobs upon gobs of money, would you buy a BMW?

If you answer was "Um, no," you are correct. If your answer was, "Yes, but only for target practice," you are also correct. If your answer was, "That is the fanciest car I can think of," CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PUBLISHING SUCCESS.

What on earth are some authors thinking? If you have an enormous, heavily fortified castle, loads of servants, and piles of gold bullion just lying about, you're not going to buy a car the moms at my kid's school drive. You're going to buy something awesome! Something fast and shiny that can reach dangerous speeds because you're A DOGGAMNED VAMPIRE.

YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A BUGATTI VEYRON. 0-60 IN 2.5 AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO WEAR YOUR SEATBELT, CHESTER, BECAUSE YOU ARE A VAMPIRE.

Alternately, if you like something a little less flashy, something you can drive without everyone thinking you have a penis the size of a gnat, you could get a Maybach 62.

BMW DOES NOT ENTER THE EQUATION.

That is all.

More Jen Related News...

I am not kidding when I say this: I told you the wrong name of my third book. My third book is not "Goddess of Light." It's "Veil of Shadows." VEIL OF SHADOWS. I don't know how I got that all messed up, but I did.

Also, if my blog ramblings and podcasts aren't inane enough for you, check out my Twitter Tweets.

More book news...

Since people have asked about the Lightworld/Darkworld novels:

Queene of Light will be out in October.
Followed by Child of Darkness in November.
And the whole thing concludes in Goddess of Light in December.

You can buy all three for someone for Christmas.

And yes, if you want to post the cover in your blog or whatever, go to town. SPREAD THE WORD, MY GORGEOUS FLYING MONKEYS!

I promised that you would see it here, first.


And I would not tell a lie. World premier of Lightworld/Darkworld, right now. Right here. Okay, it's just the cover. But it's the first time it's been seen by eyes other than at Harlequin or my writing group.

Click the image to enlarge it and read the back cover copy. Oh, and the awesome quote from Gena Showalter.
