Can’t Get Away From Those Monday Blues

Greetings and salutations, friends!

It’s been a little while (though not as long as usual) since I’ve dipped my pen into the well for blogging, so I thought I would come out of hibernation. With Shadowcast finished (and available for pre-order), my time isn’t dangling as much from the noose of book deadlines… at least for a little while.

Soon, it will be Summerpalooza. And after that, things get serious with Undone By Blood, the fifth installment in my Vampire Flynn Series. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the brief respite leading up to Wizard World Philadelphia, where I’ll be selling books and drinking coffee live and in person.

Sexy, no?

damn fine coffee

But down to business. It’s Monday, so here’s your writing prompt for the week. Or foreseeable future until Prompt Monday happens again. Because it’s my goal to keep you on your toes, and I think I do a pretty good job of that.

Your Writing Prompt:

Today started as a typical day for your character… until they logged into social media and discovered they were a trending topic. What comes as even more of a surprise is why.

According to social media, they’ve died. And, even more bizarre, they’ve died in an unusual manner. What do they do in response?

Good luck with that. As always, if you tackle the prompt (or your own take on it), post what you came up with in the comments or link to wherever you might have posted it.

Now… back to my coffee.
