Charlaine Harris: Making Vampires Southern | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it
Writer Charlaine Harris' decision to bring vampires “out of the coffin” 12 years ago has made her rich, most probably, though all she'll allow is that she's “very comfortable.” It definitely made her famous.

The Viewing Room: At least there weren't vampires – MOVE Magazine | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it
“Beautiful Creatures” is the latest installment in the saga of America’s obsession with paranormal teen romance. The movie was adapted from a series of novels by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, and I’ve been told the series isn't half bad. But the movie is so spectacularly unimpressive, I’m having a hard time remembering anything about it. And I just saw it three days ago.

Lost in the Brutality

Lost in the Brutality | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it
Where does this evil exist? The answer is simple, it exist within us. To be human means we posses both good and bad, like Ying and Yang. There cannot be one without the other.
Shonda Brock's insight:

When we allow evil to escape, we are lost in brutality and the causes that seemed so righteous are no longer relevant.

Twilight Screenwriter Reflects on the Series' Power in Hollywood

Twilight Screenwriter Reflects on the Series' Power in Hollywood | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it
No matter how you feel about Twilight — love it or hate it — the phenomenon has been one of the biggest stories to come out of the movie industry in the last five years.

Now that the series is ending, Melissa Rosenberg, who penned all of the scripts for the Twilight franchise, talked to Women And Hollywood about the impact the blockbuster flicks have had on the industry.

When asked if Twilighthas changed how Hollywood thinks about girls — and women — Rosenberg replied:

"I hope it has. I think the prevailing wisdom prior to Twilight was that you would have tent-pole movies all for 13 year old boys. And they were driving box office. I actually had producers in the past tell me, you can't do any kind of action movie or open a big tent pole movie with a woman because there are no women who open movies, except for maybe Angelina Jolie. I was appalled by that comment. So what Twilight does is show how women/girls can drive box office and they can support a tent pole movie. They're an extremely passionate fan base. This coincided with the 13 year old boys starting to stay home and play video games and work on their home media stuff. They're no longer going to theaters in droves. It's a sort of interesting confluence of events that all came together with women becoming an active audience."

 

Even if you wish the story had a better plot, a stronger female character, a less-creepy romantic lede, the fact remains that it's been a juggernaut, raking in cash from book sales, movie ticket sales and merchandise. If there's one thing that gets attention in Hollywood, it's money. Hopefully this means women will find better offerings at the multiplex in the years to come.

POLL: Male characters in romance novels--What's your type?

POLL: Male characters in romance novels--What's your type? | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

Every woman has her own preferences in male main characters. What are yours? Intellectual, dangerous, witty, tormented, nerdy, etc. Let us know!

Shonda Brock's insight:

In Shonda Brock’s debut novel, Eternal Traces, Rene Daniels is the man who steals Meryt Brownstone’s heart at first sight.  He’s confusing, mysterious and a man of few words. Rene is also a tender lover who leaves no flesh untouched. Although he is a vampire and leaves Meryt with a few fang marks in the morning, Meryt doesn’t mind, nor does she remember, for they have been lovers for centuries and his loyalty and devotion are eternal.

Reincarnation in the Bible: Can Christians believe in reincarnation? - Shonda Brock

Reincarnation in the Bible: Can Christians believe in reincarnation? - Shonda Brock | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

In the book, Eternal Traces, the main character, Meryt Brownstone, is the reincarnation of the Egyptian queen Nitocris. Meryt suffers strange dreams about ancient times, but does not realize that they are actually memories of her past life fighting to escape to warn her of impending danger.

 

Imagine if you discovered you were a crucial part of history, and that you weren’t just ordinary you, but a spirit that had endured many lifetimes?

 

Reincarnation, like in the case of Meryt Brownstone, makes for good fiction, but it can put some authors in a conundrum when it comes to matters of their faith.
