Tis the Season!!

I LOVE this time of year!! The boys go back to college (although they both still live at home...sigh) and my husband goes back to work (he's a teacher) so after a summer of constant men underfoot I at last have a few blessed hours to myself...huzzah :) Just as importantly, the new TV season is about to get underway :) I can't wait for True Blood to start, in fact, I signed up for HBO just so I could watch it! I also have a strange love for Chuck...I actually like a bumbling good guy as an occasional break from all the alphas. I haven't really had a chance to figure out all the new shows, I've been too caught up in the Olympics :) so I'd love some input from all of you on the spanking new, upcoming shows that I've probably overlooked! Oh, and as a brief update, I've turned in book five of the Guardian series (Jagr's Book) and preparing to write book six (which I'm planning for Salvatore). After that...well, I'm kinda up in the air. I love the Guardian series, but I'm a little afraid of driving it into the ground, so I've been considering a few other story lines. Ah well, it's all still up in the air, especially since I have to sell any new idea (including the continuation of the Guardians) to my publisher!! To each day...

Hope your summer is filled with joy!

Piercedfreak (Stacey) she's really good! If you ever wanna read Ivy I'll be glad to loan you mine (Yeah we know each other!)

Love the Guardian series! And hopefully you can sell any other ideas just so we'd have more books by you.

I love all of your books Alex!! But hey you already knew that ;) But I had not heard about this trueblood business. I have mixed feelings so I guess I'll just have to see it then decide. If I hear of anything new I will be sure to let you kno. Us Missouri girls have to stick together!

Dear Alex,
It's so exciting to hear that your books are coming along! Can't wait to get my hands on them :)
We are reaching the end of a hectic summer (I've been following your own blog)and you are right, now there are other things to look forward to like new shows! I am a big fan of Chuck as well!
Anyways, best of luck

Alex, any idea when we can order book #4 in the series?? I LOVE the Guardian series and wouldnt be bored if you kept it going, like the Christine Feehan Carpathian series....{hint hint} :)

Alexandra Ivy said...

Thanks so much :) It's always nice to get a book in the mail and get started on the next!! Cezar's book won't be hitting the shelves until March 09...oy, but as soon as I get my greedy hands on a cover I'll be sure and post it!! I'll also make sure an announce what I'll be working on next!

Sounds like everyone is ready for school to start again. Won't it be nice to have a few hours of just quiet!

So cant wait for the next book books!!! For all of them actually, lol.
I'm so loving the 2 days I get all alone too Alex! Its sweet heaven, lol!
I'm looking forward to the new season of shows either. Like Smallville, my fav. Its the last season *SOB* so I really need to not miss any episodes!
And Supernatural, love that show. Gonna miss Moonlight.
Enjoy your quiet time hon!

I'm going to miss Moonlight, too. I guess it never really picked up an audience, but then again, they didn't give it much of a chance...sigh.
