Tessa’s got another fun blog event going on! It’s a bloghop to help readers and writers introduce themselves. This is what Tessa says about it:

The Life Fantastic

Do you write fantasy stories/novels (any subgenre welcome)? Do you read/review fantasy books?  Maybe you create fantasy art?  Join the list (at the bottom of this post) and meet other like-minded creatures of the web!

Here’s my bit:

Paranormal. Dark Fantasy. Swords and Sorcerers. Dragons and Mythical Lands. With a sprinkling of Aliens and Other Worlds.

That’s what I love to read, and what I love to write.

I just finished reading NYT bestseller Shiver and its sequel, Linger, by Maggie Stiefvater. OMG – Stephanie Meyer, move over. New werewolves have come to town, and they’re…disturbing. Heartbreaking. Wonderful in that wolfish sort of way.  How good is all this? Linger was just released in the US. It hit NUMBER 1 on the NYT bestseller list its first week!

Check out Maggie’s website. She has two cool book trailer videos that she created and wrote the music for. They make me all shivery, just like the books. I’ll be doing a more extensive review of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series in the near future, but for now, I only have 3 words: Go. Read. Them.

OK – this blog is supposed to be about visitors getting acquainted with me. Hmm…I hate to reinvent the wheel, so if you want to know a bit about me, hit these two links:


11 things about me (skip past the award stuff to get to the list)

And if you want to know what I write, here’s a taste:

The Monster’s Growl (this is a piece about a minor character from my main WIP, Watcher. He was also recently featured in Tessa’s Blogfest of Death).

I have several excerpts from Watcher posted, as well as one from my MG short story, Fur Before Feathers. You can check them out in the links at the left under “this site.”

That’s it for now. See ya around in the blogosphere.



Also – I just discovered I’m signed up for Lisa’s blog hop as well. I’m not quite sure how that happened, but I do recall Mr. Linky and I having a knock-down drag-out fight when I signed up on Tessa’s…so without further ado, here’s Lisa’s bloghop info:

  1. Hey there! I write Epic Fantasy, at least that’s my first manuscript. I dabble mostly in speculative fiction. I’ll be signing on! See you around.

  2. Good to see you again. As a weary blood courier, I hardly ever have enough time to visit all my friends.

    I’m writing a daily serial. A paranormal murder mystery where I find myself trapped in my own ficitional world, wanted for the murder of the ghost of Ernest Hemingway and being helped by the ghosts of Marlene Dietrich and Mark Twain (what a pair, rigtht?)

    Drop in to see if you like it, but start with chapter one, LIVING IN THE CROSSHAIRS. Have a great week, Roland

    1. Hey, Roland – a blood courier, huh? Boy, do I have some friends that would like to know you 🙂

      I visited your site during the Blogfest of Death ( I think). I know I was on there recently. I’ll stop by tomorrow to check it out further.

  3. Hey Roh, just blog-hopping by! I’ve heard so many good things about Shiver/Linger now that I’ve decided to add it to my To Read list. Thanks for the review!

  4. I’ve been debating Shiver and Linger recently! Now that I hear they’re good, guess that’s my next purchase. Thanks!

    And thanks for stopping by my blog! I couldn’t get on yours the other day for some reason. As for missing my blogfest of death, my name somehow came off the list, so you didn’t miss me. I didn’t notice it until halfway thru the day.

    Anyway! I’ll be back!

    1. Misty: Thanks for hopping by. I’m glad you came back.

      My web host had server problems all week – right in the midst of the bloghop! Awesome timing…
