Just how will Besty sound in German? We'll have to wait to find out, but you can bet this is one overseas TV show we'll be pushing the SyFy Channel to import - with subtitles please.

What do you think? Would you like to see Queen Betsy on the air or just in the books? Comment below.

JAIME RUSH MAKES A SCENE

BY admin, MAY 12, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Jaime Rush plots murder and mayhem where ever the mood strikes her!

Ever hear a murder plot in progress?

Been enjoying your latte or pasta primavera and overheard someone plotting murder? If you have, it was probably a writer. (At least I hope so!) You'd think that writers, being solitary souls holed away in their cave of ideas, would do their brainstorming in private. And I'm sure many do, even me. But sometimes murder and mayhem is the topic of at lunch or dinner out in public.

I often brainstorm with my mom or my husband. A few weeks ago I was trying to figure out some plot points in book five of my Offspring series. Precisely, how my heroine becomes the target of an assassin not assigned to kill her. We sat at the bar sipping margaritas while waiting for our table. I confess that while immersed in story and plot issues I am not thinking about who is around me. I'm sure the bartender got an earful!

One of the funniest incidences was what we now call "The Red Lobster story." My mom and I were plotting, trying to figure out how my villain, a serial killer, would get rid of the bodies of the young women he's killed without leaving trace evidence. We went into the restroom on the way out. You know how you walk into a restroom and it just feels like no one in there? Yeah, that's how it felt.

We went into our stalls, and my mom said, "What if you burned the bodies?"

In 2012, the world came to a grinding halt as radiation hit from a massive solar storm. Crops died, animals perished, cities fell and humans became little more than beasts themselves.

WEB EXCLUSIVE REVIEW: SLEEPER BY LESLIE GLASS

BY admin, MAY 11, 2010 | PERMALINK

The review for the latest Leslie Glass release, Sleeper, is a *WEB EXCLUSIVE REVIEW* on our site.

This is not part of the April Woo series that has made Glass so popular. But, RT Reviewer Marie Bongiorno is okay with that. She found the newest Glass heroine, Michael, to be "appealing in a (and I realize not everyone is going to know what I mean by this) season four Buffy kind of way ... Readers will like Michael, and kind of envy her kick-ass nature, her ability to coolly evaluate a situation that might send a regular person running in another direction, and instead think: Yeah, I can handle this."
