You're Cordially Invited... Rita Vetere's chat on Monday, February 9th at 8:00 PM EST.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend last month's event, but I did make it for the inaugural chat back in November, and it was a blast. Cindy Jacks and John B. Rosenman, both Lyrical Press authors, are the guests this time around. Cindy Jacks is author of the Point of Distraction series. John B. Rosenman, an English professor at Norfolk State University, is author of five books and over 300 short stories, and his novel Dax Rigby, War Correspondent is now available through Lyrical Press as well.

In case you hadn't heard, Rita's novel, Ancient Inheritance, is now available in digital format. I purchased my copy today for only $5.50, and I'm really looking forward to reading it!

Hey, Brian,
So glad to hear you'll be stopping in at Monday's Chat. I've got the virtual Guinness on tap for you. Am also already looking forward to next month's release party for The Unearthed!

Thanks for picking up a copy of Ancient Inheritance--I hope you enjoy it!

Finally got around to watching Let the Right One In last night. Enjoyed it quite a bit, but not as much as I enjoyed the book, which is usual for me. Am waiting to see what Hollywood does with the remake.

Hey Rita,

My wife will love to hear I've found a way to "virtually" drink too...

I've never heard of Let the Right One In. What's it about?

I hear you about the whole movie/book thing. Strange how it works like that, isn't it?

Let the Right One In (Lat den Ratte Komma In)is a Vampire novel by John Adjvide Lindqvist. This isn't your romantic Vamp type story, and I recommend it highly to anyone who takes their Vampires seriously. It combines the vampire myth with the true horrors of childhood in a story that is both sweet and absolutely terrifying. If you can get past the film's Swedish subtitles, you'll enjoy it. Hollywood is remaking the movie, in 2010 I believe, but I suspect the remake will fail capture the world of a 12-year-old with the same kind of honest brutality the Swedish film does.

Sounds like a very interesting story. I haven't read too much vampire fiction. Only vamp stories I've read are Dracula and one of Anne Rice's novels (can't remember which). I'll have to check this one out, though, based on your recommendation.
