I know, I know. It's like I forgot all about it and suddenly out of nowhere, like men and buses, two Billy releases come along at once.
Here's................ Luca! Remember Tony's cousin? The one who was giving Lydia the sexy eye at Gina's restaurant in On Caristo's Watch? Well this is his story. He's honestly the first character from the series that I wasn't bullied - I mean convinced to write. I had an idea about his past and when I posed it to Hank, he gave a shrug and said, "Do it. Work through your many, many, many issues. I'll come back after you've stopped staring at that dude's crotch." What? I was distracted. I like the Caristos. Not all of them mind you, but Tony and Luca are honeys.
Er, don't be too surprised by Frankie, Luca's love interest. She's an action babe - A-Team ready to use whatever's on hand to 'correct' behaviours. I went for it in this book. The little voice of conscience that holds me back and says "that's a bit much" was muffled. I haven't vented this much since... well... old days, where I was writing people I didn't like into being beheaded and possessed and all sorts. There's a scene with a... you'll know when you get to it. And the other one. And the one a few chapters after that. Oh and the second page. No filter, people. Nada.
As soon as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iTunes links are ready, I shall provide. And, and! I made it very clear who's going to be the next Knight right at the end. Advanced notice! Everything's out of the window. Window - geddit? Ba-dom-ching!
Hank: Good God, woman. That was awful.
Me: I know. I really shouldn't blog on a few hours sleep.
Hank: You blame me for that abomination, I'm off until 2013.
