JL Bowen’s Healer & Brinda Berry’s Whisper of Memory, WOOT!

Thursdays Bite

a paranormal blog

Wait, it’s not Thursday?

Who said that?

No, you’re right, it’s Friday. And I’m posting late. My life since January has taken on a frantic quality that has me spinning, and now I’m back to work until July, so I’m going to have to take drastic measures. And the first one I’m taking is changing my blog.

I’m putting Moonday Mania and Thursday’s Bite on hiatus until further notice. INSTEAD,  I’ll post on Sensational Saturdays a variety of topics that will sometimes be writer oriented, sometimes paranormal oriented, and sometimes just be whatever the heck I’m thinking about.

There, I did it, I cut back. My friends will be so proud of me!

So, today will be the last Thursdays Bite for a while, and I’m going to share with you some YA links to some fabulous books that my very cool friends have just put out! Now I don’t write YA, and most of you may not read YA, but I’ve found quite a lot of adults do read YA. And those that don’t sometimes have children who do read it. So I’m sharing the links and books in order to spread the word!

 I’m very excited to say that JL Bowen‘s debut novel Healer is available in e-form from Featherweight Press. This is the first book in the series, but it’s not a cliffhanger, so don’t worry about being held hostage till the next book. Plunge into Armand’s world as he discovers that everything he’s every thought was true, is totally wrong.

healer, by JL BowenThirteen-year-old Armond Costa heals in three days, no matter what abuse his uncle and aunt inflict upon him. On his fourteenth birthday, he sprouts wings and discovers his aunt and uncle had lied to him. He’s the lost Golden Demon’s Healer. His father, King of the Golden Demons, insists he return with him and save his people from being persecuted by their mortal enemies, the Dark Demons. Now, Armond must choose between the Ellis brothers and seventeen-year-old Rusty Owens — the only family he’s ever known — or condemn the Golden Demons to extinction.

 

And now, most of you know Brinda Berry, she’s a fabulous source for authors finding out about social media and techie stuff, but you may not realize she’s also a YA author! Her new book in her Whispering Woods Series is called Whisper of Memory. It continues the story of Mia, who is special in two ways: she has Synesthesia (want to know what that is, click HERE to read Brinda’s post on Paranormal Freebies.) and she has a gift for extraordinary perception.

Weapons training and winter formals… a deadly combination

Brinda Berry's Whisper of MemoryAll Mia ever wanted was to fit in at Whispering Woods High. But being a portal-finder who dates a guy from another dimension sort of makes it hard.   Mia’s brother disappeared over a year ago, and now agents from the IIA are policing people’s movements through dimensions. She’d trusted Dr. Bleeker from the local university when he’d told her the IIA were the bad guys. But even a girl with an extraordinary ability to sense things can make mistakes.

Now two people are dead, and as a portal gatekeeper for the IIA, Mia needs to find Dr. Bleeker before he hurts anyone else. And her boyfriend Regulus, an Agent for the IIA, carries secrets of his own. Between learning about weaponry, finding the perfect dress for the winter formal, and catching bad guys, who has time to fit in?  

So that’s all folks. I’ll be hard at work editing and doing all the other stuff that has kept me crazy, but I won’t be blogging quite so much for a while. You can find me here on Sensational Saturdays and also on the first Friday of the month at http://paranormalfreebies, where I will still be doing paranormal focused bites.

Killer Blog Tour Update

Moonday Mania

typically a blog on the craft of writing

My book is out  and I’m still excited! February 18th Little Red Riding Wolf went on sale, I had a fabulous Twitter party (thanks Brinda!) and I had a fabulous live party with actual (not virtual) cake and champagne.

Now comes the hard part.

What do you do once the book is out? I’ve been blogging like crazy on other people’s sites, and I’m running a contest (see details HERE) but soon it will all trickle down to just me, myself and I. Then what?

Well, it’s actually very easy. After the killer blog tour and the exciting book release, after the contest winds down and my engagements slow down. I get to do it all over again!

Wow! Do you think there will be more cake?Stock Photos - Cake

And how does this happen?

Because I’m still writing.

I’ve been writing all along and I am over halfway finished with Snow and the Seventh Wolf, the sequel to Little Red Riding Wolf. Not only that, but I have several long novels that at some point I will pronounce ‘ready’ and they too will be released to the world. Then I’ll be back on the roundabout headed to another blog tour and another contest.

Meanwhile I’m still focused on Little Red and the Killer blog tour.

How is your roundabout? Do you write while waiting for the submission results? Do you submit more than one project at a time? How do you keep everything going so that you don’t get a chance to breathe? Is that what you want?

Today you can find my blog, Twisting in the Wind or How to Twist a Fairy Tale on The Dames of Dialogue HERE.

And tomorrow find me at Erin Riordan’s Pagan Spirits blog HERE.

Leave a comment there, then skip on over to the Paranormal Freebies site HERE to register it with the Rafflecopter widget and get one more entry into my Little Red Riding Wolf Contest, ending soon.

And of course you can always comment here, then skip over to the Paranormal Freebies site!

The Sinkhole of Inspiration

Thursday’s Bite

a paranormal blog

Today I’m welcoming fellow Paranormal Freebiesteam member, ML Guida to Thursday’s Bite. ML is pursuing her Master of Arts in Creative Writing through Regis University.  On November 15th, 2011, her novella,Cassandra, will be published through Five Prince Press in the anthology Finding Ms. Wright.

http://www.mlguida.com/

I hope everybody had a Happy Spooky Halloween.   I have to admit I overdosed on John Carpenter’s Halloween.  I love watching Jamie Lee Curtis be terrorized by Michael Myers.  What I like about John Carpenter’s Halloween is the suspense – how Michael jumps out of dark corners, the music and the tension.  When movies just show horrible gore and blood, they lose the tension and terror.  Think of JAWS.  How many times have you heard the theme song and shuddered?  As you can see, horror movies have always been a favorite past time for me.  A couple of weekends ago, I saw Paranormal Activity 3 and yes, it’s scary, because it possesses these same components.  My favorite is the babysitter sitting in the kitchen.  I won’t give away what happens because it’s one of the best scenes in the movie.  If you like to be scared, I’d recommend it.

I enjoy horror books as much as I do the movies.  But sometimes, the screenplay misses the terror of the book.  For instance, Stephen King’s The Shining is a suspenseful book, but the movie with Jack Nicholas fails to capture the terror in the book.  I know many people would disagree with me, but I like the ending in the book better than I do the movie.   My other favorite author is Anne Rice.  I feel in love with Lestat, Louis and Armand.  The ultimate sexy vampires!  I believe both Rice and King’s ability to develop believable characters makes their books hard to put down.

My fascination with scary movies and books led me to write paranormal romance.  In my world, I can create my own supernatural monsters.  In Cassandra, I create an Underworld where demons dwell, not the ones that will possess you like in The Exorcist, but demons that had mated with mystical and real creatures.  My hero, Eric, is Prince of the Dragon Demons who are in danger of becoming feral and conquering their world and then focusing on ours.

Many times, readers want to know writers come up with our ideas.  Writers develop ideas based on every day experiences.  In this case, I surfed the internet and stumbled upon a sinkhole in South America.  The huge sinkhole sunk over 100 feet into the ground.  A highway had caved into the hole.  I broke out in shivers when I saw it, because I wondered what would happen if it stretched to hell and something crawled out.  I took it one step further and thought about my favorite mountain town, Frisco.  What if a sinkhole happened in the middle of the night at Walter Byron Park?  Hmmm…what if a demon flew out searching for his mate?  Eric Wyvern comes to life for me.  What would happen if the heroine could see ghosts and a demon goddess from the Underworld?  The demon goddess in my book is the Wraith, and I have to admit she was fun to write about.   She is shrouded in a dark cloak and all you can see is her skeletal hands and red burning eyes.  When she talks, she hisses.  She is one of my favorite characters in this book.

So, the next time you see a sinkhole, imagine where it would go?  What lives down there?  What wants to escape into our world?

The Elements of Magic

Thursdays Bite

a paranormal blog

Due to my crazy schedule attending the CRW retreat, getting CRW’s AOE contest and tea organized and the upcoming second challenge of the Thrid Writing Campaign, (as well as taking a sick day) I am taking the liberty of re-posting my first column from Paranormal Freebies Wizzards, Witches and Psychics, Oh My! Thanks for your patience.

Wicca (pronounced /ˈwɪkə/) is a specific Neopagan religion. Its adherents are referred to as Wiccans, though the terms Witches or Crafters are also used.[1] Developing in England in the first half of the 20th century,[2] Wicca was popularised in the 1950s and early 1960s by a Wiccan High Priest named Gerald Gardner, who at the time called it the “witch cult” and “witchcraft,” and its adherents “the Wica.”[3] From the 1960s onward, the name of the religion was normalized to “Wicca.”[4]

Source: Wikipedia

Wiccans practice a variety of different kinds ofmagic. One of the most popular kind is described in books by the now deceased author, Scott Cunningham. Scott’s magical spells are based on working with the harmonies of nature and the four elements. Earth, air, fire and water.

Earth, is the first element. Dense, solid and nurturing Earth is used for growth, prosperity and fertility spells. Ritual tools include dirt, heavy or green stones, earth smelling herbs and the metals iron and lead. Earth is represented by the color green and the pentacle. Its season is winter, its direction is North and the astrological signs are Tarus, Virgo and Capricorn. Spells that are based in earth are spells that need grounding, stability or refer to growth or finance.

Air’s ritual tools include fragrant flowery herbs, wind instruments (such as a flute), light weight stones and the metals tin and copper. Its represented by the wand and the color yellow. Air’s season is spring and its direction, East. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are all Air signs. Spells for travel, knowledge, instruction freedom and recovering lost items all benefit from an air ritual. Air encompasses divination, concentration, visualization and wind magic.

Fire’s basic nature is complex. From warming the hearth to destroying woodlands fire has many jobs. It is purifying, destructive, protective, sexual and forceful. Its color is red and its tool is the knife. Stinging or thorny plants, plants from hot and desert areas and ones that provide heat such as coffee or peppers are all useful in fire rituals. Summer is its season and South is its direction. Gold and brass are its metals. Aries, Leo, Sagittarius are all fire signs. Use fire in spells for protection, sourage, sex, energy, authority and banishing negativity.

Water is used for cleansing and healing. It is the element of the psychic and love. Use aquatic plants, succulents and flowers that represent love in water rituals. Its stones are blue, transparent or translucent and its metals mercury, silver and copper. Autumn is water’s season and West it’s direction. The cup or the cauldron is its tool. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are water signs. Use water in spells and rituals for love, purification, healing, dreams, sleep and psychic awareness.

In a Wiccan ritual all the elements will be represented, but on draws on specific elements for support based on the type of need. A spell for protection from a stalker might use a candle, a garnet and cayenne pepper. A spell for prosperity green herbs and a sketched pentacle. Rhymes and formalized words are used to clarify purpose and strengthen the spells. There are many books and places where you can find more information on Wicca and the four elements. But remember, in Wicca the one rule holds sway: An it harm none, do what thou wilt. In other words, before you do a spell you must be sure of your intention.

Are you interested in magic? Have any questions about the four elements or Wicca? Leave questions, comments and ideas for future blogs in the comments section.

All the information on the four elements found here is from Scott Cunningham’s book Earth, Air, Fire & Water, More Techniques of Natural Magic from Llewellyn Publishing.

This is just a short blog and cannot convey the subtlties of Wicca and Elemental Magic. For more books and resources visit Llewellyn’s home page http://www.llewellyn.co

Who’s Haunting the House on Third Street?

Thursdays Bite

a paranormal blog

I’ve written my first ghost story. Brrrr.

I was inspired by watching My Ghost Story on the Bio Channel, which I was inspired to watch after reading Hillary Seidl’s blog Hillary’s Haunts on ParnormalFreebies.com. I frequently watch historical programs on hauntings because I love hearing the old stories about castles and haunted inns, but My Ghost Story has a more personal bent. On My Ghost Story modern people tell the stories, although they may be about older ghosts and spooky mansions.

This particular story was written also because I had a need to fill. On Paranormal Freebies we will be having a sign up for our e-zine and as a bonus for signing up we are going to be giving away free fiction! So I needed something to give away. Something short, for our anthology and something paranormal. For some reason I had trouble writing a short romance. But a ghost story, ah, now that came fast.

I love ghost stories. I have those collections I bought as a kid, and some I’ve purchased as an adult. I love to go on the tours (especially the night tours) and get scared. Stories about tragic deaths, murders and lost souls turn me on. I guess I’m a little twisted.

I have ghosts knocking around in my head that want to have a full length novel too, but I’ve told them they have to wait in line. The elves and witches and were-wolves were there first. No, no! Say the ghosts. We were here first. We’ve always been here.

And they are right.

Ghost stories have been with us as long as we’ve had death, and they’ll be with us until the end. We even have stories of ghosts in space. Want to see a truly scary movie, watch Event Horizon. You won’t sleep.

We write stories, make movies and even sing songs about ghosts.The Highwayman, Have You Seen the Ghost of John? are two examples that come to mind. “Wouldn’t it be chilly with no skin on?”

One would think ghosts were a new phenomenon. Suddenly there are almost enough shows on TV to have an entire network. You can watch celebrity’s share their stories, go on ghost hunts, and sleep in haunted rooms. If you want ghosts, they’re out there.

I prefer the older types of ghost stories, so The House on Third Street is modern but has an old fashioned feel. I think it’s something about ghosts, that even the newest ones feel old. Like they’ve been there forever. Maybe it’s because they will be.

What kind of ghost stories do you like? Are you a fan? Do you love to secretly watch them bang around in the dark with all that equipment on TV? Or are you like me and love the historical houses with their years of tragedy. Ghost layered upon ghost. Leave me a comment and share how you get your ghost fix.

And if you want to read The House on Third Street it’s  available HERE.

What in the BLEEEP Do I Write?

Thursdays Bite (on Friday)

a paranormal blog

Due to the added post on Tuesday for the first challenger of the Third Writers Platform-Building Campaign (click HERE for post) Thursday’s Bite has been delayed till today (Friday). Thanks for your understanding!

I say I write paranormal fiction, but is that exactly true? After reading Is it Paranormal, Supernatural, or Preternatural? by author Elijana Kindel on Paranormal Freebies I began to wonder. I write twisted Fairy Tales, like Little Red Riding Wolf and The Queen’s Huntsman. I also am currently writing a darker non fairytale linked series of werewolf stories. Do these qualify as paranormal by Elijana’s definitions.

PARANORMAL…that which lies outside the range of normal experience or scientific experience.

SUPERNATURAL… anything above or beyond what one holds to be natural or exists outside natural law and the observable universe.

PRETERNATURAL…that which is outside or beyond the natural and is believed to have a rational explanation for its occurrence.

Are werewolves and elves and witches outside the range of normal experience. I’d have to say yes. Are they outside natural law? I asked Elijana about werewolves and vampires and here is what she said:

“Weres and Vamps would actually fall into the Preternatural camp. Because they’ve got a finite range of abilities and they have (if the paranormal world is built correctly) a rational explanation for their existence. It might be genetic–or magical–or whatever, but there is a reason why they exist.”

So why do we call it “paranormal” fiction when it is really about preternatural creatures?

Here is my view:

It’s because of the universe. If you use our basic universe and our basic rules, stay on our planet and stay (mostly) in our time period. We label it paranormal, because it is within our normal range of experience.

If you go to other worlds without reference to our modern normal world, its fantasy. And if you go to other planets and too much in the future, it’s science fiction and you need to have reasonable solid science (okay, not perfect science, but believable within the worldbuilding).

So when is it urban fantasy?

Here is Wikipedia‘s definition:

Urban fantasy is a sub-genre of fantasy defined by place; the fantastic narrative has an urban setting. Many urban fantasies are set in contemporary times and contain supernatural elements. However, the stories can take place in historical, modern, or futuristic periods. The prerequisite is that they must be primarily set in a city.[1]

Doesn’t that sound like paranormal? When I looked at Wikipedia’s definition of paranormal fiction it sounded like it included urban fantasy, not that they were separate and distinct genres.

Which leads me to believe that even though my twisted fairy tales have werewolves in a modern setting, as do my newer WIP’s, and even though I write about elves and witches and magic. I can cover it all by calling myself a paranormal romance author.

What is your view? Do you have a distinct idea of what paranormal is versus urban fantasy? Do you only read one or the other or do you read a wide eclectic variety like me?

Thank you Ciara Knight! If I hadn’t gone to Facebook to see your gorgeous cover for your new YA book Love’s Long Shadow and then followed your link to your site to see what your book was about (click HERE for Ciara’s gorgeous and inventive website) I would never have seen your post on The Third Writers’ Platform-Building Campaign.

Climbing the Mountain of Goal Setting

Moonday Mania

blogging about the craft of writing

August has been a month of ups and downs with my writing. I started off with a bang. Meeting my goal of writing 2,000 words five days a week, keeping up with blogging three days a week here, and getting Paranormal Freebies up and running. So last Monday I got very excited and decided to climb the highest mountain I could. I set a new goal. 50,000 words during August.

I’d already done 10k. Well, almost. I’d hit close to 8,000 in three days. That meant I could do it, right? 8k in three days, that means I can do almost 3k per day. At 3,000 words per day I should be able to hit 50,000 words by the end of the month. So I said I would. I placed the statement, “I will write 50,000 words by the end of August” on my goal setting loop. And then the week crashed.

Sounds like a fire exploded my laptop, right? Wrong.

Just life. Just the time I had to spend back to school shopping, cleaning my folks house, diving people here and there. And updating websites, going to meetings, letting the (very hot!) window guy in to look at the windows. Life happened and I let it and I certainly didn’t hit my goals more than one day this week.

And there was something else I discovered.

It’s hard!

I can write 1,000 words in an hour with no trouble, so keeping my butt in the chair for two more hours should be easy, right? Wrong again!

It turns out I can write 1,000 no problem. 2,000 with a little thinking. But after that I slow down. Way down. I don’t know what to write next. Its like my brain just stops after 2k. I can, when the muse is helping, make it to 2,500 and even 3,000. But after this week, struggling to make it past 2,500 and hating it, I had an epiphany.

If it makes writing a chore, why am I doing this? Just to hit a number that I stuck out there for myself. It makes no sense.

Now I’m all about setting goals, and setting them high. I read Kristen Lamb’s blog on Self Discipline this week and it really resonated with me. I like staying on a schedule, I like writing every day and keeping my goals out there. But when I set them too high I set myself up for failure.

Kristen says its like exercise and if we go to the gym and kill ourselves one day, odds are we won’t be back. Mountain climbing is like that too. Have you ever decided to climb a mountain that was just too big? You need to start out with a small hill and work your way up to the Fourteeners.

I’ve worked my writing up from my small hill of 500 words per day to a pretty good mountain top of 2,000. Three thousand is just too many for my writing muscles right now. But if I keep up with setting my goals high, but realistically high, then I will eventually get stronger and reach that 3k mark.

So I’m taking it back a notch. I’m going to get on my goal setting loop and admit failure and start over again. My goal is to write at least 2,000 words five days a week and enjoy it! And if the muse is with me, I may hit 2,500 or even 3,000. And that’s okay.

Tell me about how your goals are going this week, writing or otherwise. Does setting your goals high help or hinder you? Does it make you frustrated or did it push you to levels you didn’t think you could reach?
