Here’s an update on what’s going on with life and my first Anita Blake Reivew, Book 1 Guilty Pleasures
Hi everyone. I know it’s been a while since you heard from me and if I waited to do a podcast it would be even longer, so I decided to write to tell you what’s going on. I’m getting ready to try a new format. I’m looking to do a video cast talking about the books I’ve been reading.
I’ll be working on my video editing skills but in the mean time I wanted to share that the first series I’m going to do is the Anita Blake Series by Laurell K Hamilton. So if you are interested in following along you can. This series has a bit of something for everyone. Vampires, shapeshifters of all breeds, zombies, necromancy and magic. Later in the series it does get into explicit sex but it’s easily skipped over for the plot if you don’t like reading that kind of thing.
I also wanted to say that I know I have some podcasts that aren’t working and I’m trying to get those re-hooked up so that if you missed anything you will be able to listen to them.
Thanks for your everlasting continued patience.
I was lucky enough to sit down with Linda Poitevin who is the author of the “Gregori Series”
It’s a wonderful series about angels and demons with a new take on how things go down!
Enjoy and be sure to tell us what you think! Are you team Arameal or team Seth?
Christina Henry is the author of the “Black Wings” series. Currently with four books out and a fifth one in early 2013, she’s written a wonderful soon to be nine book series about an agent of death who finds out she’s part angel. They are a must read.
It’s been a while since I’ve done interviews so this one is a little raw. Forgive me.
And there are some MAJOR spoilers so please be warned when you listen.

Two things happened last night. First of my favorite daughter had her last volleyball game of the season. They lost, but they fought hard. Today, no more practice. Tryouts for club aren’t until the middle of November. We’ll be doing things to make sure she stays in shape until club starts up, but for now, she’s got herself a little break.
Secondly I wrote 4000 words last night and finished off Of Gnomes and Dwarves Book 1. I didn’t just finish it off, but I feel really good about how the ending came out. I think it’s a lot stronger than the original version (which was good, but bumpy). As I’d been saying I wrote this book the first time with a lot of passion, and not a lot of talent. This time around I think my writing skills have improved to the point where I wrote the story the way I’d intended to. Only one character didn’t come out the way I wanted and I’ll be fixing that in the rwrites. Overall I’m happy with the effort, but it’s time to let it sit for a month before I jump in and start to edit.
Hi everyone…I know it’s been a while and I appreciate you beyond measure. I hope that this episode will explain some things and get you as excited for the future as I am.
Two urls that will go on the side of this site and the Guardians site soon are in this episode and can be found here:
Hope to see you soon and feel free to comment and come by my pages!
For those who don’t know…I’m using the new MMO “The Secret World” to help me generate not only ideas but enthusiasm for writing Guardians. Because of this I’ve joined a really awesome Guild called Midnight Squadron. In pure Kimi style I’ve put extra effort into the Charity that our Guild is helping with called “Child’s Play” to help raise money to buy games for hospitalized children all over the world.

I’ve been into RPG’s and MMO’s for a long time. They’ve had a hand in helping me flesh out characters and bring to life some of my ideas. With the new game called The Secret War coming out in Beta May 11th, especially since it’s set in an urban fantasy environment, I’ve seen an opportunity to help me jump start Guardians and use the game to flesh out it’s world and characters. Not to mention to have a little fun while I’m at it.
In Part 1 – me and two other Templars (one of the three factions of The Secret World) talk about gaming and how it’s helped our writing. We also talk a bit about The Secret World.
We would love for you to join us and you can do so at <a href=”http://on.fb.me/tws-templars” target=”_blank”>http://on.fb.me/tws-templars</a>
We’d love to have you as Templars but understand if another faction suits you better!
I’ll try and get other links up soon.
Here you will find the audio promo for templars. Please feel free to download this link and to place it on your blog, your facebook page, your podcast…anywhere you like! Join the war against evil!
