Musings in the Dark: December 2012


I Miss the 90s

So yesterday, I was hanging with my bff, catching up on American Horror Story.  Afterwards, we got caught watching a VH-1 countdown.  It was just like we were back in college; such wonderful memories.   The countdown in question was the top 40 R&B Songs of the 1990s, and it was hilarious because for just about every song, my bff and I would say, “Girl, that’s my JAYUM!”  We would sing along, reminisce about where we were and what we were doing when said jayum came out.  The 1990s was great for music and so much goodness came out of that decade. 

For a comprehensive list of songs, go here.  But below are some of our jayums from back in the day when life was simpler and the music was good.


Notes from a Fan...

I sat down today and had a nice, pleasant surprise in my inbox.

"I was not prepared to cry a river this weekend. But I knew I would get a great read. You have a fan in me Ms. Radjani. Corruption was better than I thought it would be. I do apologize I'm not one to write reviews. But I wanted you to know that I loved your book."

Corruption is still available on Amazon.


Fic Update Alert: His Girl Friday

Chapter 2 of "His Girl Friday" is up on pinkelegance and ready to be read.  Called "Underground," it depicts the events that took place before, during and after the scene when Commissioner Gordon was dragged into Bane's underground lair.


The Next Big Thing

I’m participating in The Next Big Thing blog hop, thanks to my good friend and brother from another mother, Dennis Upkins.  The Next Big Thing is a branching pyramid-of-prose for authors to discuss their latest release or WIP. Each author answers some preset questions (see below for my answers), and then tags five others to go next week.
Today I will be discussing my upcoming novel that is due out in January from Middle Child Press.


Fic Update Alert: "His Girl Friday"

Chapter 1 of "His Girl Friday" is posted on pinkelegance.  Called "A Trip to Uzbekistan," it chronicles the before and after of TDKR's opening scene where Bane hijacks the CIA plane. *drool*



New Fic Alert: "His Girl Friday"

Some time ago, in August, to be specific, I mentioned that I had plans to write a third and final (?) TDKR fanfic entitled "His Girl Friday."  I couldn't write the fic until the film was released on DVD.  So obviously, as of last Tuesday, I became the proud owner of the attractive TDK box set for only $19.96 at the local Wal-Mart.  This gives me unlimited opportunities to lose my collective shit over Bane and study the movie so that the story can be told.

"His Girl Friday," which is a sequel to "What You Need," explores Bane's influences in key scenes throughout the movie.  I love writing fanfics where I can thread the needle of consistency and fill in blanks to satisfy my own warped, smutty sensibilities.  Of course the fic is for mature audiences only.

Feel free to check out "His Girl Friday" over on pinkelegance.  Reviews are encouraged and appreciated.


Every Woman Should Have...

I have an awesome fashionista friend who's a buyer for a large department store chain. Recently, she developed a list of ten things she thinks every woman should have.  The list was popular with our group of friends on Facebook, and she's given me permission to post it here.  Feel free to share your own ideas, inclusions, substitutions and disagreements.
