25% of on Lilja's Library: The Book

Posted: November 30, 2011, 18:54
Thinking about getting a copy of my book? Well, I just checked with Cemetery Dance and they told me they only have 30 copies left. I also asked them if they would be willing to give my readers a discount. After all Christmas is coming right? And they agreed. They are giving you 25% of on my book if you order it from them. That means you pay $30 instead of $40. Mot bad if you ask me.

If you’re interested, here is what you should do.

1) Go to the Cemetery Dance website and add the book to your cart:

2) When you reach the PAYMENT page during the checkout process, just put the special code LILJA25 in the COUPON CODE field near the top of the page and then click the REDEEM button.

But as I said, they only have 30 copies left so hurry if you want one.

The Walking Dead shows why it's best!

Posted: November 28, 2011, 23:15
The Walking Dead is at its mid-season break and what a mid-season finale. It really shows why it's the best series on TV at the moment. Here are two short clips from the next episode. The only downside is that you'll have to wait until Feb. 12 to watch it.

It is just that cool!

I know you have seen photos of it before but today I got a press kit for Bag of Bones and I must say that it’s every bit as cool as the previous photos showed. Great work by A&E!

The Dark Tower Still Homeless

Posted: November 23, 2011, 23:08
My favorite King blog Talk Stephen King reported the following today.

While Ron Howard signs new deals with HBO, Deadline gives this quote from Akiva Goldsman, “we’re still pushing the boulder uphill.” Deadline says that Goldsman is optimistic that the ambitious project will find a home “very soon.” But he just signed a 2 year deal with HBO to make a series about Doc Holliday. Ron Howard is expected to direct the pilot.

Two more seasons for Dexter

Posted: November 18, 2011, 20:22
Entertainment Weekly reports that Dexter has been renewed for two more seasons:

'Dexter' renewed for two more seasons

Dexter is will return for two more seasons, Showtime just announced.

The serial killer drama was renewed for a seventh and eighth season. Each will consist of the show’s standard 12 episodes. The network also closed a deal with star Michael C. Hall for two more rounds. The deal makes Dexter one of cable’s longest-running drama series.

“The series is bigger than it’s ever been in its sixth season, both in terms of audience and its impact on the cultural landscape,” said Showtime topper David Nevins. “Together with Michael, the creative team on the show has a very clear sense of where they intend to take the show over the next two seasons and, as a huge fan, I’m excited to watch the story of Dexter Morgan play out.”

Here’s a question: Does this mean Dexter will end after eight seasons?

The werewolf leaves Being Human

Posted: November 16, 2011, 13:56
Dread Central reports that Russelll Tovey (the werewolf in the UK version of Being Human) leaves the series after season 4 leaving only one original cast member...

There we were, enjoying our Saturday morning coffee and catching up with Twitter, when we saw a tweet from Russell Tovey, one of the stars of the UK version of "Being Human", saying that he's leaving the show. First Mitchell, now George?!? Talk about ruining your weekend! Anyway, read on for the sad, but true details.

First off, here's what @RussellTovey tweeted:

"Hey my lovely witty's, you may or may not know by now, but I am leaving Being Human officially.. Thought you should all know... Im sorry x"

Then, reading a little further down his tweets, we found a link to an article in The Guardian in which he explains, "Well, I've actually left 'Being Human', but no one [outside of the show] knows yet. Aidan [Turner]'s left to film The Hobbit in New Zealand [with Peter Jackson], and going on without him on this fourth series felt strange."

When asked if having only one of the original cast members left (i.e., Lenora Crichlow, aka ghost Annie) puts the show in major jeopardy, Tovey promised fans, "No, with 'Being Human' the story can definitely go on and on. Toby [Whithouse, the writer] still runs it, and they can do all sorts ... add giants and robots!"

Well, we don't know about giants and/or robots, but this certainly has raised a lot of questions. Such as when and how werewolf George (Tovey's character) will be leaving and what it all means for Sinead Keenan, who plays Nina, his love interest, when the fourth season of "Being Human" begins airing sometime in early 2012. As we find out more, we'll be sure to pass it on!

Dr. Sleep a goddamn scary book

Posted: November 13, 2011, 21:53
Yesterday King announced that he was done the second draft of Dr. Sleep. He said that critics have been very kind with him regarding 11/22/63, and they've said maybe he was getting away from all that horror stuff. They won't know what hit them with Dr. sleep, he said. It's a goddamn scary book.

Thanks to Bev Vincent
