Versing With VAMPS!

The GOOD News - I *didn't* have to Shovel!! It was WARM out as well!

The BAD News - Little bitty Snow beads were occasionally blowing around... And, it was Cloudy out.

The GREAT News - That BOOK I pre-ordered Last Week came in, 4 Days *BEFORE* the RELEASE DATE!! -- More on IT further Down...

So, despite the bits of WHITE falling from the GREY Skies and, since it was WARMER, I decided to change up My "Exercise" Routine for a SHOP-ABOUT... Seeing as The BOOK was in! And, I didn't have the opportunity to "check out" THE MALL Yesterday. Also, the ELDERLY PARENTAL-UNITS had *other* Plans for The CAR.

Along the SHOP-FARI Route, a quick Non-Purchase-Perusal of FUTURE SHOP. Then, through the Parking Lots to the big CHAPTERS-INDIGO Bookstore. Stayed long enough to Pick-Up The BOOK and, onward to THE MALL....

Still, *NO* new FACTORY ENDS! aarrrggghhhhh!

Did a buzz through of the Pharmacy - I had a recently acquired a "Points Redemption" GIFT CARD.. Stocked up on the "On SALE" VITAMIN D [..the only Thing keeping Me sane, I think..?] and, some new Sticks of BONNIE BELL LIP SMACKER. I've been using this Stuff for over 40 Years now! Love it! -- They have a new GUAVA Flavour... Oooo, one of My FAV Impossible-To-Find-Up-Here Fruits! Can't wait to TRY it out!

Worked My way up to the Grocery Store... Got My LOTTERY Tickets -- Oh! WON a few $$ Tonight again on Them! WOOHOO!

In the Housewares Section, There's this "MARK DOWN" Bin... One of MOTHER's FAV locations in There -- Actually, We have gotten quite a few GREAT Deals on that Stuff over the Years. Anyway, Today, it was mostly JUNK... With the Exception, of a couple of "Out-of-Package" KING SIZE, 100% CottonMATELASSE QUILTS [with 2 Large Pillow Shams] for under $20.!!

At THAT Price, NOT passing it up! Grabbed ONE! Then, just as I was about to call MOTHER, She calls Me! -- They were finished with Their Other Errands and were going to pick Me up...
Ah, TIMING, gotta LOVE it!!

Okay. THE BOOK...

The "official" Release Date is THIS coming Tuesday - February 1st... However, since I pre-ordered IT for Delivery to The Store, IT turned out to be available SOONER! -- HAPPY DANCE!!

                                                                     TITAN BOOKS - ISBN: 9781848568556

What the former TV Series "MOONLIGHT" was based upon. One of the earlier and BETTER of the
"VAMPIRE" Genre Shows that are the Viewing Trend these Days...

It's essentially a DETECTIVE MYSTERY Story with a VAMPIRIC twist... A Book for ADULTS! As it has a lot of "Language" and "MATURE Subject Matter". Very "Noir".... If the Main Character owned a DVD Player, He'd probably have the entire Collection of "DEXTER"! The Novel's Prologue reads like a TEASER from that Show!

It took Me a little over 4 Hours to NOT PUT IT DOWN! The Narrative brought back memories of reading DASHIELL HAMMETT... But, with more of the In-Your-Face-Reality-Check of THIS Century. I can't wait to HEAR an AUDIOBOOK Version of This!

Not to mention, READ the NEXT BOOK!!

  1. Have you read any of the Dexter books? Which the show is based on? Very dark, but well written. I recommend :)
