Now, For Something Different..........

Hey Everyone. Just thought I would do something different today
I just got this book the other day and can not stop reading it. Just Fun!!
If you like what you see and read I have set up my new Shelfari Shelf so you can order it right from there through Amazon.

Miss Calliope Reaper-Jones doesn't want to be daddy's little girl anymore. Calliope just wanted a normal life: buying designer shoes on sale, dating guys from Craig's List, web-surfing for organic dim-sum for her boss...But when her father - who happens to be Death himself - is kidnapped, and the Devil's Protege embarks on a hostile takeover of the family business, Death, Inc., Callie returns home to assume the CEO mantle - only to discover she must complete three nearly impossible tasks in the realm of the afterlife first...


From the creative mind of award-winning actress and writer Amber Benson comes an inventive and witty new series of fantasy novels to die for.








Amber Benson co-wrote and directed the animated web-series Ghosts of Albion with Christopher Golden for the BBC. The duo then novelized the series in two books for Random House. Her first solo novel, Death's Daughter, will be published by Penguin in 2009, with a children's book for Simon and Schuster called The New Newbridge Academy to follow later that year. As an actress, Benson spent three seasons as Tara Maclay on the cult show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ( I almost stopped Watching when she was killed)She has also written, produced, and directed three feature films, including her latest, Drones, which she co-directed with Adam Busch and will be released later this year.

That sounds like a fun read. OH GOSH, Buffy! My sister and I used to watch that together. She was all about Angel, I was all about Spike.

But Spike made a Buffy-Bot that was just wrong! Angel is sensitive and broody and I LOVE when the story took him back a few hundred years!

Hey CB it's me Sally. I forgot my password. I have a question for you, and it really important to me. I read on another blog the your straight and single boss,also your friend, has been in a long term relationship with a certain lady on the island. Is this true? I know I can count on you to be honest. I really don't want to make a fool of myself.

I drove right over to Borders to buy the book but they didn't have it! I was annoyed. They said the order is late. Tomorrow I will go to Barnes and Noble and hope for better luck. I love the premise and really enjoyed the "tease" that was provided for reading. I have another 4-5 hour Iron transfusion Thursady and I NEED something cool to read.

Hey CB! Spent last January in Kotlik and Russian Mission video-documenting the band, Common Rotation, as they played a bunch of gigs there. It was an amazing trip and I kinda fell in love with Alaska in the process. Will definitely be checking out your blog now to get my Alaska fix :)
