Blackthorne is back to my editor, officially. Now is the time when I get to kick back for a bit and indulge in some TV, read , sleep, and otherwise recharge my story brain. So, naturally, my husband has been tossing fun things at me. First up, The Santa Clarita Diet.
My first impressions: Yay! Drew Barrymore! I'd pretty much follow her into a blazing dumpster fire. Pretty much. Zombies aren't usually my thing, except in comedy. So, yay! And lastly, please for the love of all that's holy and diverse don't let the only black people in the series be drug dealers. PLEASE. Other than that, I'm so in. It is available today. So, I'm going to try it out.
I gotta say, I'm kind of done with amateur detective shit. I'm pretty much done with "murder of the week" shit in general... with the exception of My Favorite Murder and well, Lucifer. Also, I have a hard time hanging around CW Teen Angst™ for long. The over the top forced romantic tension bullshit drives me batty. However, the whole concept "The CW does The Archies." makes me giggle. Also, I hear that they made a new Sabrina comic that should be up my alley, though. Am so giving that a try.
I'm also reading Charlie Stross's Freyaverse series, and I'm enjoying it in spite of the late Heinlein references. (My guess is Friday.) But the main character has never said, "Gee whiz, I'm going to be raped. [sigh] Guess I'll just enjoy it." Plus, I know Charlie listens to actual women. Heinlein, not so much. So, there's that. Anyway, I'm reading it for the AI thing which I'll be doing for a while. I'm so behind in my reading, y'all. So. Behind. [sigh]
 I've a whole new chunk of non-fiction research to do in a hurry for next project which has no real name yet.
 See iZombie and Warm Bodies. Dark humor is kind of my thing. I can't help myself.
 I suspect finding a real blood trail and following it to the shooting victim when I was eight years old might have something to do with a certain reading obsession. (No, really.) I've mostly weaned myself off of True Crime these days. Mostly. But there is a serial killer plot line in Blackthorne.
 I can't explain why that show works for me. It shouldn't. I loved Hellblazer, the comic, but haven't gotten around to Lucifer, the comic. On the other hand, I can tell the show is going to wear thin soon. Oh! I hear that the actor who did such a brilliant job as Constantine is going to make an appearance. Looking forward to that even though the TV show kind of sucked. (But the whole "Don't look at me. She did it." was 100% classic John Constantine.)
