Do you have a favorite author? A series you really love? Let me know! I’d love to read and review for you guys!

Posted on: 18 August, 2010

Do you believe in ghosts or evil spirits? Would you be willing to spend a night alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted?

Ok, ladies and gentlement, this is a semi-on-topic post. 🙂

Ok, first off, here’s a poll on the “BEST” Paranormal Romance series… There’s a list of 400 books, many of which seem to be one series (such as all four Twilight books are listed separately, then a box set of the series is a fifth entry, the Black Dagger Brotherhood has multiple books listed, etc). Might be fun to look at and find some new authors! Also, make note, there is a LOT of simply Urban Fantasy (Kim Harrison, Anne McCaffrey, Charlaine Harris, etc) in this!

Release dates for 2010 Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance books.

I feel icky today. IBS flared last night, kept me up most of the night, and is still there, so I’m tired and shitty

Posted on: 20 July, 2009

has decided that after dinner tonight, I’ll *have* to work on the mountain of laundry. Time to sort and get rid of a ton of it!

Ok, I’m fixing to start up Da Hubband’s and my old radio show on
This time, I’ll have a daytime show that I’m gonna call Witchy reads with Di, and I’m gonna try to get some of the authors on my list to come on. Hopefully they won’t mind that I have, like, ZERO listeners. I’m going to do some promo work that I’ve found with and and a few other sites that I’m connected to so I’ll get a listener base, plus start pushing it’s myspace page a whole lot more again ( 🙂 I really want to get something up and going. These reviews were something I really wanted to get going with a site I worked for before I got Freaky Parents ( up and running, but I had a falling out with the owner of that site before things got going with it, and I’m just now getting back on my feet emotionally and physically (had a bad winter and my fibro kicked my arse after the falling out) to be able to get things going.

I am VERY passionate about these authors and their books, and would dearly love to get to know them better. Ironic, when I’ve considered myself a musician all my life, now I’m more passionate about writing and things on the internet than my music, but that’s another blog altogether.
