What Slays in Vegas
December 3, 2010
Happy Friday! I’m happy to announce that I just turned in a new story to my editor. What Slays in Vegas is the tale of the one demon that Lizzie didn’t annihilate in The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers.
Whoops. You didn’t know she missed one? Neither does Lizzie. But that’s okay because Shiloh is only a half-succubus and she has plenty of problems without Lizzie and the biker witches on her tail.
It’s been a really fun story to write. Last spring, an editor at Kensington approached and asked if I’d be interested in writing a novella for the So I Married a Demon Slayer anthology. Of course I said yes because who wouldn’t want to write about demon slayers? I wanted to do something related to my Accidental Demon Slayer books, but not necessarily a direct tie, so Shiloh came into being.
The poor thing is under a terrible demon boss. Nobody respects her and she couldn’t even get slayed the last time because she has too much good in her. Nevertheless, she’s doing her best to channel her inner demon. In fact, she’s helping to re-take Las Vegas for the succubi when she has a wild night with a guy who has a few secrets of his own. Their powers mesh in a bad way and she wakes up the next morning, married to a demon slayer. Talk about one heck of a hangover.
Now he won’t give her an annulment (and a release of her powers) until she helps him take down her boss, who happens to be the demon ruler of Las Vegas. It’s been a blast to write and I can’t believe it’s over already. But, hey, I suppose that just means I get to have fun writing The Monster Mash today.
Take care. Have a great weekend and today’s clue for The 12 Days of Bookmas is: Aliens Beware
