Question: Do You Ever Picture A  “Bob” You Know?

Question: Do You Ever Picture A “Bob” You Know?

I don’t have a problem differentiating my “real” men from my “fictional” ones but I haven’t undergone the ultimate test yet, reading a book with #1’s name in it. If any male is going to infringe on my fantasy land it would be him. I do however sometimes struggle when I read books back-to-back that […]

Question: Are you an adventurous reader?

Heck no! LOL I used to be before I started blogging but now if it doesn’t have werewolves in it or at the very least something supernatural, then I won’t read it. Luckily for me, paranormal has a lot of sub-genres like Ubrban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Young Adult and Steampunk, so I still get a […]

Question: What Makes A Long Term Couple Keep Sizzling?

Question: What Makes A Long Term Couple Keep Sizzling?

I think it’s important for couples to keep things fresh regardless of whether they are fictional or not. Boredom and complacency are two of the biggest relationship killers. A couple still needs to be able to surprise each other even after years or, as is the case in paranormal fiction, millenia together. It doesn’t have […]
