Happy Holidays from The Deadline Dames!

I’ve had to keep quiet about this for months!!  You will have to visit my  Livejournal  to see the very hilarious videos because WordPress will not let me post flash videos here. 

But here is the news!

In January, I’ll be a part of a new website called The Deadline Dames, a group of urban fantasy and paranormal romance authors who kick deadline butt! (They seem to believe I’ll be joining the ranks of heavy deadline fun and I can’t wait!! <g>)

Since there are nine of us, Toni Andrews had to mix up two videos.  The only author not present in the videos is Lilith Saintcrow…She’s getting a new head shot and as it was, we gave Toni quite the time trying to find the right head shots that would work.  You know,  I’m thinking we could have put in one of Lilith’s  cool book covers…

I was so honored to be invited into this and I’ll be sharing the links to the website and blog as soon as we go live in January!

The Deadline Dames are in alphabetical order: 

Toni Andrews

Jenna Black
Rinda Elliott

    Thanks. I’m excited and very humbled to be included. Oh, and ready to hold up my end of the “kicking deadline butt” bargain.

    “Deadline Dames?” Sounds like an excellent title for a murder mystery. Sounds like a lot of sore deadline rumps to me.

    Merry Xmas, and to a movie deal in 2009!!!! (I cn fantasize for you, can’t I?)

    Yes, fantasize as much as possible. The good vibes can only be helpful!

    Happy Holidays, X. 😉

    How fun is that? I would so like to be a part of a blog like that. Maybe one for non-traditional YA authors.

  6. December 27, 2008    

    I bet you could round up a few good non-traditional YA authors for one. 😉

    Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season, Celise!

    A belated congrats on this, Rinda! Very exciting indeed. I loved the video — shades of Monty Python. Good times. Good times.

    I love Monty Python-have been thinking of getting some of the show videos. Thanks for the congrats! I’m very excited about this. 🙂
