The Little Bludmermaid: A Love Song to Sang
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who’s written… every dude?
Look at this man
His chest is so bare
He has a top hat, tails and long hair?
Looking at Criminy, you’d think Sure! She’s written every dude.
I’ve got Southern drunk pianist strong men.
I’ve got secretive artificers galore
I’ve got… um…. no wrong men!
But who cares? No big deal
I want to write more
I wanna write, wanna sell ten more books
I wanna see, wanna see them explore Sang
Riding around on those – what do you call ’em?
Oh – VAMPIRE BLUDMARES.
If I can’t write more Blud books, we won’t see the whole world
Books are required to visit more countries
Oh. DIRIGIBLE BORDELLO.
Up where they dance, up where they drink blood
Up where they kick vampire rabbits in the mud
Writing’s not free.
I wish I could be
Publishing more in Sang’s world.
What would I give
What would I pay
To spend a day
In Paradis Cabaret?
Betcha in Sang, they don’t get a pang
Bet they don’t need dentists for shiny white fangs
Bright young Bludwomen
Cannot be swimmin’
Cuz of salt’s poisonous taaaaaaaang!
Hang out with daimons and learn the can-can
What’s a bludpoodle, and why does it– what’s the word?
Why can’t I have more?
Why can’t I write, write more books in Sang’s early light?
I’m out of sequels
Time for some prequels
In the Sang world.
Or, in non-Disney-vampire-mermaid speak, the third book in my Blud series for Pocket is out on Tuesday, January 28. WICKED AFTER MIDNIGHT (http://www.amazon.com/Wicked-After-Midnight-Delilah-Dawson/dp/1451657919) takes a blood-drinking contortionist from Earth out of the traveling carnival and into the dangerous but beautiful cabarets of Paris. I’ve written three books, three e-novellas, and a short story in the world of Sang, and I’m so sad to see the series end. Sang brings together all the things I love: corsets, clockwork monkeys, bloodthirsty horses, vampire rabbits, carnivals, cabarets, mustachioed demon villains, absinthe, submarines, dirigible whorehouses, feisty heroines, and, most especially, hot heroes in top hats and waistcoats.
THE DAMSEL AND THE DAGGERMAN (http://www.amazon.com/Damsel-Daggerman-BLUD-Novella-ebook/dp/B008QYC1KE) is an e-novella that earned a star from Library Journal and which almost serves as the introduction to WICKED AFTER MIDNIGHT, as it gives heroine Demi Ward a reason to leave the clockwork carnival where she’s been working as an acrobat and contortionist. Together, these two January releases say goodbye to the characters I’ve come to love while giving the reader two last, delicious stories of adventure, intrigue, imagination, and, yes, sexytimes.
So if you like a fantasy adventure with deep worldbuilding peppered with steamy sex, be sure to check out the Blud series. But don’t trust the mermaid. That girl’s up to no good.
