Trick or Treat: Godiva Chocolate Contest and Other Halloween Goodies - ENTER NOW | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

Naturally, October is a special month for paranormal romance authors and readers.

 

There's a chill in the autumn breeze that blows the falling leaves. Night comes earlier and stays with us longer. The hairs on the backs of our necks become more receptive to any creepiness, and the darkness ripens our imaginations for vampires, werewolves, monsters and ghosts. In October, maybe, just maybe, they could exist.

 

Here's what's scheduled on shondabrock.com in honor of OCTOBER and HALLOWEEN.

It seems that not only will the original bad be stalking our shores, they will make it across the coast to Europe. Looks like no where will be safe from them before long. Hopefully, Nik won't run across the planet unchecked, torturing and killing as he sees fit, but knowing him the way we all do... he and his family will rule this world with a bloody fang before we realize what game he's really playing.

Glittery Vampires in Love

Glittery Vampires in Love | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

No, you’re not experiencing deja vu (or if you are, it’s unrelated). Schaeffer’s Ghost has already posted a review of Twilight—and quite a good one at that. And yet, I am compelled to review the first book in the series because I have been compelled to read it by my wife (possibly as revenge for my forcing her to read The Cowboy and the Vampire, which in turn was revenge for being subjected to Jane Eyre).

Shonda Brock's insight:

What do you think Twilight says about love?

Laura Brown's comment, September 10, 2013 10:35 PM
The first book in the series was very good, well written. I was a little disappointed with the next couple. Still good but missing the "magic". I think the writer was told to pump out more books and now they are pumping out movies. I don't think the poetry and magic from the first book will get a chance. It took time to create something beautiful. Now they just want to make money.
