Are you missing Harry Potter? Not feeling the sparkly, vampire movie love? I tripped over an early trailer to Auror’s Tale and loved it so much, I participated in their Kickstarter. This is fan fiction taken to a totally fun level. Here’s the blurb:
“New York City is a battlefield. Dark magic rules the underworld. The NYC Department of Magical Law Enforcement (DMLE) is the only line of defense. Hawthorne is the force’s newest recruit and the dark criminals’ latest threat. Plunging into the nightmare that his occupation offers, he makes quick enemies of the most depraved wizard gang in America: the ever violent, ever twisted Hellhounds. AUROR’S TALE chronicles Hawthorne’s tempestuous adventures.”
The production was delayed by Hurricane Sandy, but it is still going forward. Can not wait for the first episode!
For more info:
AUROR’S TALE is not affiliated with JK Rowling, Warner Bros, or Time Warner. No existing characters are used in this fan work.
Okay, deep breath, and now we’ll move on to the links:
Reetta Raitanen does a great link round up about once a week. I had to grab some links from her fun stuff section (you can click her name for the full roundup):

And from me, can’t let November end without linking to 9 Tragic Macy’s Balloon Mishaps!
And last, but hardly least, 20 Things Women Do For their Besties.
In The Last Enemy, I have some fun with best friends, and the things they will do to help each other. While no bodies were moved during the writing of, or in the plot of, this book, some cookie dough and a bad dude both went down. And, in a squee moment, The Last Enemy (Book 1) should be releasing in audio any day! Byte Me (Book 2) and Lonesome Mama (bonus short story) both released in audio on Audible already and Byte Me is deeply discounted! Down to 1.99 last time I looked. That’s cheaper than the digital edition! And it’s been WhisperSynched on Amazon. It’s also available on iTunes and Lonesome Mama should make it there in a few days. (Update: Lonesome Mama is now available on Amazon and in iTunes!) I’m not sure when Missing You (Book 3) will release. I know it’s a bit messy having them release out of order, but I’m afraid I couldn’t control that.
I now have five books in the audio pipeline and seven in audio production, so I’m pretty excited. Once they release for sale, it takes a few days for them to “arrive” at Amazon and iTunes, and a few more to be WhisperSynched on Amazon. At that point, it appears (based on my one sample) that the price gets discounted.
So what book or movie series ended with much mourning on your part? What’s your replacement movie/book? I hope you have one! Do you like/listen to audio books? Any fun links or video you just have to share?
