What to Buy the Paranormal Person in Your Life

Hello everyone! I’m Cassie Alexander, author of the Edie Spence series – Nightshifted, Moonshifted (out now!), and Shapeshifted this upcoming summer.

Since Moonshifted takes place between Christmas and New Years, I thought a gift list for the paranormal lover/reader/friend in your life might be a fun thing to do. This one is lovingly culled from culled from my Etsy favorites. Edie and I would love any of these, and maybe you will too. 😉

For your zombie lover – give the gift of brains!

Vintage Anatomical Brain

For the werewolf with a sense of humor:

Wolfsbane soap

For the upscale daytimer (all the better to hide bite marks with):

Silk Scarft with Spiderweb

For your shapeshifter (so, secretly this is a gift for yourself, but he’ll like seeing you in it, so…)

Skeleton Corset Wiggle Dress

For your vampire ‘friends’:

Red Blood Bag Buddy Plush

For the one vampire you actually trust:

Modern Anatomical Heart Pendant

For other nightshift nurses (okay, not from Etsy, but as a nightshift nurse myself
I swear these are the best blindfolds in existence):


And your santa sack to put them all in – it’s not a ‘doctor’s’ bag – but it is completely awesome:

Tote Bag

Thanks Carmel!

Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander

From debut author Cassie Alexander comes a spectacular new urban fantasy series where working the nightshift can be a real nightmare. Nothing compares to being Nightshifted.

Nursing school prepared Edie Spence for a lot of things. Burn victims? No problem. Severed limbs? Piece of cake. Vampires? No way in hell. But as the newest nurse on Y4, the secret ward hidden in the bowels of County Hospital, Edie has her hands full with every paranormal patient you can imagine—from vamps and were-things to zombies and beyond…

Edie’s just trying to learn the ropes so she can get through her latest shift unscathed. But when a vampire servant turns to dust under her watch, all hell breaks loose. Now she’s haunted by the man’s dying words—Save Anna—and before she knows it, she’s on a mission to rescue some poor girl from the undead. Which involves crashing a vampire den, falling for a zombie, and fighting for her soul. Grey’s Anatomy was never like this…

After surviving a brutal vampire attack, Nurse Edie Spence is ready to get back to work—attending to supernatural creatures in need of medical help. But her nursing skills are put to the test when she witnesses a hit-and-run on her lunch break. The injured pedestrian is not only a werewolf, he’s the pack leader. And now Edie’s stuck in the middle of an all-out were-war…

With two rival packs fighting tooth and nail, Edie has no intention of crossing enemy lines. But when she meets her patient’s nephew—a tattooed werewolf named Lucas with a predatory gleam in his eye that’s hard to resist—Edie can’t help but choose sides. The question is: can she trust this dangerous new ally? And can she trust her own instincts when she’s near him? Either way, Edie can’t seem to pull away—even if getting involved makes her easy prey…

Nurse Edie Spence is once again called upon to save a life…and this time, it’s personal. Can her new community of zombies, vampires, and shapeshifters come to her rescue when she needs them most?

When Edie was fired from her paranormal nursing job at County Hospital, her whole world came crashing down. Now she’s is once again shaken to her core. Her mother is deathly ill and there’s only one thing that will save her: vampire blood. But with the paranormal community shunning Edie, where can she obtain it…without losing her own life in the process?


Edie hopes to procure it at her new job at the clinic across town, where the forces of evil loom large. Vampire gang wars are rampant. Old underground enemies are rising to the surface. And Edie’s zombie ex-boyfriend has arrived at the scene—but is he the same man he used to be? And what should she make of the enigmatic doctor with whom she shares an unexpected connection? She’ll have to figure it out soon, because all hell is about to break loose—literally—and time is running out…
