Over at The International Thriller Writers' Big Thrill site, where all this week we're discussing humour in thrillers. To joke or not to joke, that is the question...

I'll be sharing my wisdom (?!) on and off during the week, including replying to the comments already cropping up. Very thought provoking.

Keeping up the recent historical theme with a bit of Promises Made Under Fire. This was the first bit I ever drafted of the story and it remained exactly the same all the way to publication!

First light. A distant sound of something heavy being moved. A thin curtain of rain—the sort of misty, drizzly rain that soaked us through to the skin. Prospect of something for breakfast that might just pretend to be bacon and bread.
Good morning, France. An identical morning to yesterday and bound to be the same tomorrow. Tomorrow and tomorrow, world without end, amen.
I looked up and down the trench. The small world I’d become bound in was now starting to rouse, stretching and facing a grey dawn. The men were stirring, so I had to get out my best stiff upper lip. If I showed how forlorn I felt, then what chance had I of inspiring them?
“Morning, sir.” Bentham, nominally my officer’s servant but in reality a cross between a nursemaid and a housemaster, popped up, smiling. “Breakfast won’t be that long. You and Lieutenant Foden need something solid in your stomachs on a day like this.”
“Aye.” I nodded, not trusting myself to say anything else until I’d got my head on straight.
“Tea’s ready, though.” He thrust a steaming mug into my hands. Add telepathist to the list of his qualities. Maybe when I’d got some hot tea into me then the world might seem a slightly better place. “Quiet, last night.”
“It was.” I was going to have to enter into conversation whether I wanted to or not. “I don’t like it when they’re quiet. Always feel that Jerry’s plotting something.”

If you're interested in "Comedy and Humor in the thriller genre: Is it difficult to write comedy or humor into thriller novels? Is it necessary, desired, or just a tool to release the tension in some needed spots?" I'll be one of those discussing it from September 25th at the ITW roundtable. See you Monday for initial thoughts and looking forward to answering your questions.

[personal profile] ada_007 posting in [community profile] avengers_search
Hi all, I am looking for a fic I read a long time ago where:
-Thor is in a relationship with Jane living on Earth
-he walks the streets at night
-mourns his brother until one night he sees a man that looks just like Loki
he follows him
-This man/Loki, is a prostitute
-They start a relationship
-Eventually Thor and the avengers fight ... can't remember what but leads Loki to remember who he was and
-Thor realizes that it was Loki all along
...something like that.
Can anyone please help me find this fic, been wanting to read it again for the longest time

I see that someone has nominated last year's TV series of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for [community profile] yuletide. That could be interesting, if anyone takes it up.

(wow, it's within 1 character of tag length limit!)

Shell Shocked - free story

"Shell Shocked" - a shifter story with a twist - is available to download free and gratis from my free stories page.

The lights, the recording equipment, the lairy looking rozzer.
I’ve never experienced anything like this before, never been in trouble with the police. Honest Billy, that’s me, always kept my nose clean; I even declare every one of my tips on my tax form. So, what’s Mrs. Zanderson’s best boy doing being formally interviewed under caution?
Doing his best to explain just how he’d got into this mess in the first place, only I can’t tell them the whole truth, for reasons that will become apparent.
“How and when did you meet Jonny Telfer?”
“A couple of months ago, in a bar. The Happy Return.”
“Had you gone there to pick up a fare?”
“No. It was pleasure, not business.”
And what a pleasure it had turned out to be, at least at first...

Hi friends,

I'm back from my trip to Spain! It was lovely and very relaxing - once we had arrived. Before that, our plane had more than 40 hours delay (we didn't wait the whole time and booked an earlier flight instead). And now I've caught the cold my friends had during our holiday and am currently sitting at home instead of tackling the mountain of work waiting for me at the office. My colleagues sent me home after looking at my sniffling self for half a day. Ah well.
