If you're signed up for Reddit, you can "Ask Me Anything," from 7-8:30 pm CST and I'll answer! Writing, archaeology, Cheetos, books, oh, hey, PACK OF STRAYS DROPPED TUESDAY! Yay!
So maybe I'll see you there.
This has been such an action-packed year! I've been on the move since Seven Kinds of Hell came out in March, traveling all over the country to science fiction and fantasy conventions (including a couple of Comic-Con events), mystery conventions, and two Sherlock Holmes weekends. I've been blog-touring like mad, too, and it's been terrific to get to know readers all over the world this way. Somehow we managed to cram some recreational travel in and realized a dream of visiting Japan. After 30 years, no one was more surprised than me when some of my Japanese language came back!
Seven Kinds of Hell, the first
of my Fangborn novels, debuted and has been getting terrific reviews:
"Cameron weaves fantasy into an exciting adventure thriller seamlessly. Seven Kinds of Hell is an outstanding introduction to the Fangborn."
"Cameron's bright prose is a refreshing treat in the first in her Fangborn series. Readers will enjoy the thrills and spills of archeologist heroine Zoe Miller as she discovers the surprising delights of werewolfism and the meaning of artifacts dating back to Pandora's Box."
-RT Book Reviews
"...a fresh series debut that should appeal to urban fantasy fans looking for something a bit different from the generic werewolf tale. "
I'm delighted to report that my Emma
Fielding short story, "Mischief
in Mesopotamia" (Ellery
Queen Mystery Magazine) won both an Agatha Award and an Anthony
I published three stories: "Finals"
(Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine) and "The
Serpent's Tale" (Kindle Short) were Fangborn stories, and
"Dialing In" (Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine) is the second
of my "A/K/A Jayne" thrillers.
Next year brings...lots more werewolves and vampires! The second Fangborn novel, Pack of Strays, will be out in early spring. It follows Zoe's adventures picking up right after Seven Kinds of Hell, and I'm very excited about it! There'll be a new "historical" Fangborn short story in the fall. I'm looking forward to the publication of "The God's Games," in Games Creatures Play, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner. I'm also working on two super-cool projects that I can't discuss yet, but trust me when I tell you how thrilled I am to be part of them!
With thanks for a wonderful 2013 and wishing you all the very best in 2014,
