Shift, by Chris Dolley, is his second novel that published in July of this year.
If you missed the premier of Moonlight last Friday, you can view the entire episode online here:
So I finally caught up on all of my premiers this week:
Heroes - A bit confusing, but what else is new? And Peter’s back.. that’s all I care about!
Journeyman - Snore. I’ll still give a few more episodes to redeem itself though.
Reaper – A bit funny, but not of enough interest to me to keep watching.
Bionic Woman – Dark and exciting. I’m hoping this one gets better character development, if it’s to go anywhere.
The Office - Spectacular in every way.
Smallville - Supergirl gets major billing along with the rest of the main cast. And she didn’t even have to say a word in this episode. There seemed to be way too much going on to fit into one hour-long episode. Bizzaro was defeated a little too easily.
Stargate: Atlantis – Jewel Stait is the new Doc! She was great. And continuing from last season’s cliffhanger, Atlantis just keeps getting more exciting! Still my favorite show.
Moonlight - Surprisingly fun. Vamp, Mick St. John has a sense of humor. And I enjoyed his character more than I thought I would. It’s no Blood Ties, but I’m looking forward to see where this one goes.
What were your favorites?
Which were disappointments?
The other day, I reviewed the debut novel of the talented Jennifer Rardin.
Below is an informal interview with the Indiana-born author (a fellow Hoosier!):
Angela/SciFiChick: Tell us a little about Once Bitten, Twice Shy.
Jennifer Rardin: The story takes place in Miami, where CIA assassins Jaz Parks and her boss, the vampire Vayl, have arrived on New YearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Eve. Their mission is to take out a plastic surgeon with terrorist ties named Assan. But first they have to figure out who his new, powerful partners are. The plot thickens like good, spicy sausage gravy as you race through the book. You also need to know that Jaz is struggling with major issues from her past that are affecting her in fairly bizarre and sometimes frightening ways.
Angela: Tell us a bit about yourself and your experience in writing.
Rardin: What does it say about you when, by the time youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re eighteen youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve already read every book you really care to from your local library? Um, get a life, girl! Yeah, there for a while IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be reading four books at once, living out separate fantasies, all of them heroic and utterly fascinating. I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t resist a good story. Not the soap opera kind. Nope, never was hooked on those. The kind where decisions matter, good can triumph over evil and mundane crap like taking out the trash can transform into adventure when you find a demon munching on your garbage.
