Hi, all! I hope you're enjoying the holiday season! I'm loving the lights and decorations. I wish we could get a little snow to go with them, but it looks like I'll have to settle for a cold front that will lower temps just enough to require a jacket. 😀

“I’m not antisocial. I just want to be left alone.” ~ Roland”
Dianne Duvall, Darkness Dawns

“Beautiful, brave and possessed of violent tendencies. I like her.”
Dianne Duvall, Darkness Dawns

“You still aren't screaming."
"Is that the usual reaction you get when people realize you're, um..."
"Different? Yes, generally."
Marcus stepped up beside him. "We also get shrieks, curses, pant wetting, bowels releasing"--Sarah grimaced--"religious recitations..."
Her eyebrows rose. "Religious recitations?"
"You know--Get thee back, you, ah..." He nudged Roland. "What was it that priest called us?"
Roland rolled his eyes. "Which one?"
"The one in London."
"What century?"
"Eighteenth."
Sarah's mouth fell open.
"The one with hair like Albert Einstein?"
"Yes."
"Spawns of Satan."
"Right." Adopting a raspy elderly man's voice, Marcus shook his fist at Sarah and intoned dramatically, "Get thee back, ye spawns of Satan. Return thee to the bowels of hell where ye belong!" Lowering his fist, he proceeded in a normal voice."Then he hurled numerous biblical versus at our heads as we walked away...But screaming is by far the most common reaction, from both men and women.”
Dianne Duvall, Darkness Dawns

Hi, Esa! I think YOU are amazing. :-) The writing is going well, thanks. I've finished the first draft of In Still Darkness, the Immortal Guardians novella I'm writing for the Predatory anthology, and am enjoying reading back through it. It tells Richart's story. (His Second, Sheldon, has really grown on me.) And Book 4, as yet untitled, is coming along nicely, too. I'll keep you guessing as to whom that one features as hero. :-)

Aqua I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the Immortal Guardians' series. I look forward to the 3rd book. Thank you for accepting the friend request.
Aqua


Dianne Duvall Hi, Hbeebti. I don't have a release date yet for Book 3, but hope it will be 2012. I'm writing it right now (sorry I can't reveal who it's about yet) and am excited about the changes taking place in the Immortal Guardians' world. I hope you will be, too!


Hbeebti Hey Dianne I know book 2 is due out soon, but I love to update my books and was curious if book 3 is due out in 2012 or 2013? Of course I am dying to know who its about as well. But I understand if you cant reveal that yet. lol


Dianne Duvall Hi, Kiki~Silk~ES! Nice to meet you! I hope you like Darkness Dawns! {:-D


Dianne Duvall Thanks, Angela! I hope you enjoy it!


Angela Just started Darkness Dawns (Immortal Guardians #1) by Dianne Duvall and I am only 25% into, but it totally hooked me from the beginning. Not too many books do that for me. Thanks for adding me to your friends.
