Writing from the Dark Side

Heh! I started out calling this blog post "Blogging from the Darkside" and then went to "Writing from the Darkside" and then went on to finally arrive at "Pubbing from the Darkside".  This little tidbit of information should be able to give you a little hint over what has been happening at the Oliver Homestead since I last posted.

Big News! I am part of a great collaboration with a collection of Writers who decided that if a romance book should be done, it should be done by us! Hence, the beginning of what is now know as Welcome to Serenity Harbor, Maine.

This is huge! This is ginormous! All of the books are set around the fictional coastal Maine town of Serenity Harbor. We didn't limit genre, only that their characters fall in love in Maine.

Enjoy!

Dead Like Me... a show about the grim reaper. Sounds uplifting, doesn't it? It's about a girl who is killed when a piece of the space shuttle (a toilet seat) falls from space and hits her. Instead of moving on after death she becomes a part of a group of grim reapers whose job it is to collect souls from those are newly deceased. Doesn't exactly sound like light entertainment, but there are so many great facets to the show and so many possible opportunities for the characterst that I am literally kicking myself and wishing that I had somehow seen this kind of story.

The second show that I've seen bits and pieces of is Dark Angel with Jessica Alba. Despite the fact t…
