Carrie Vaughn just created the term urbane fantasy, I love it. The Parasol Protectorate series totally fits the idea of urbane fantasy. I wonder if she’d mind if I borrowed it? Reminding one of say, vampires in cravats sipping Pink Slurps (blood mixed with champagne).
In other news, Gentle Reader, the cover has been decided. Orbit is going to do a “making of an urban fantasy cover” blog on it, then I can post the finished product here. Soon!

Quote of the Day:
“I think the first duty of all art, including fiction of any kind, is to entertain. That is to say, to hold interest. No matter how worthy the message of something, if it’s dull, you’re just not communicating.”
