The Monster MASH
August 11, 2010
So I recently received the news every writer likes to hear – an offer for a new contract. Now this does not mean the end of the demon slayer series. I’m just looking at what I’d like to do beyond Lizzie, Pirate and the biker witches – although please don’t mention this to the biker witches as I don’t want them showing up at my door. At best, they’ll try to bribe me with Jack Daniels. At worst, well, let’s just say there are spells that I haven’t discovered yet and would rather not learn about.
The next demon slayer book, Last of the Demon Slayers, is due out at the end of December. Anyhow, this new series will be published by St. Martin’s. It is near and dear to my heart because it answers a question I’ve been wondering for awhile now – what happens when a vampire, werewolf, yeti (you name the monster) is injured and they don’t heal overnight? Or what if they do heal and something goes wrong (like their bodies forget a piece)?
Well now we have our answer. You see, there are MASH units set up to handle these kinds of cases. My new series features a surgeon in one of these MASH units. And there are plenty of fun characters in the supporting cast as well. The majority of the action takes place at the MASH camp and of course we have to keep things interesting. I’ve been calling the first book The Monster MASH, although titles can change depending on what the publisher wants. No word on release dates yet, but as always, I’ll keep you updated.
