Guest Author & Giveaway: Rosalind Hartmann

Hi there.  I’m Roz, and you’ve never heard of me before, but that’s cool – hopefully that’ll change…some…day.  I just recently self-published my first novel which is part of a series.  Blood Memory:  Book 1 (because honestly I couldn’t think of a better title) is a paranormal action/romance written book with a little humor mixed into it. It’s based off of characters originally created on a role-playing message board I helped create – www.sanguineaffliction.com.  It’s a tale of supernatural beings:  werewolves and vampires, and I swear I didn’t just hop on the bandwagon because of all the sparkles and stuff […]

From the moment the episode opened with Connor taking the Mystic Grill hostage with Jeremy, Matt and April (whom I now unceremoniously dub Red Shirt. Add her to the drinking game folks, April is in jeopardy take a shot, April is clueless take a shot, April has to have her memory wiped, take a shot…you get the picture) in it, I knew Connor was going to bite it (pun intended) and that it would be Elena who did the deed. And you know what? […]

Rachel Hawthorne and Supernatural Fun

Moonlight We headed out to dinner last night with Rachel Hawthorne, author of the paranormal YA series The Dark Guardians. It was fun to take the mini-me to an author event, particularly one that focused on the types of books she likes to read. Ms. Hawthorne was hosted by the local library for the question and answer session. She opened with a fun list of top items to prefer vampires or werewolves. For example: Werewolves are great because: They have a built in costume for Halloween Loyalty to mate and pack is everything They are warriors They can fight all […]
