Make Some Noise- Day 10

Make Some Noise2

sanctuary 210

Print Antho Bks 1&2 coming April 6

Four days left to party, and I’m about to make the room get real crowded.

So many people have touched me this past year. Made me smile. Made me outright LMAO- like getting into a convoluted three-way on Twitter with Alisha Rai and Keith Melton, two awesome new authors. (Sorry about the eyebrows, Keith.)

CrySanctuary 72smallSanctuaryLost 72WebSanctuarysPrice 72SMThere’s my buddies at International Heat, including Valerie Tibbs who stepped out this past year herself in a big way. She’s the artist in our group, painting pictures with pictures instead of words. You can see the covers she did for me on the free reads.

Leah Braemel is my Canadian connection, who keeps me moving as we pants our way through another book.

Then there’s the dynamic duo of Donna and Bree, the not-so-secret identities behind Moira Rogers. We’ve shared an editor and a release date. We’ve discussed statistical analysis of rankings vs. sales vs third party venders. There have been a few giant spider killing tips thrown into the mix and in the end you get a couple of peeps I love to hang out with.

And I love to read their stories. They also write paranormal–werewolves, witches and general mayhem–and every time I finish one of their books I swear when I grow up I’m going to learn to plot a multi-book series like them. Each book stands alone, but each book marvelously fits into the whole and I need to know what happens next! Their print anthology of the first two books in this series releases in a few days.

Today’s prize is an ebook of your choice of the first three books in the Red Rock Pass series,as I wait impatiently for Sanctuary Unbound, book 4 in the series, coming out June 1.

If you need the rules, they are here. To enter today, let’s talk about paranormal verses contemporary. What percentage of YOUR bookshelf, virtual or real, is paranormal compared to contemporary. Since Bree and I love stats…

My paranormal stash accounts for about 25% of my growing home library. When I was young, I read quite a bit of horror, sci-fi, fantasy & etc. , but it’s whole new world now! Thanks to the unlimited creativity and talent of writers like you, Viv, my “fiction box” is ever changing its shape! Fabulous fiction indeed!

It used to be about 90/10 (pnr/contemp), but in the last six months or so I’ve been on a Contemporary kick, so now it’s about 50/50.

I think my bookshelves and totes of books are about 50% paranormal and 50% contemporary. Mainly because when I started reading you couldn’t find very many paranormal books. These days for every 3 books I buy 2 of them are paranormal so pretty soon my paranormal books should be more than my contemporaries.

Wow, I’m not sure. I know that a few years ago, it would have been something like 98% contemporary, 2% other. Now it’s more like 50% contemporary, 25% paranormal, 25% historical? And I agree, can’t wait for Donna and Bree’s next installment!!

Yeah, after Tidal Wave scorched off my eyebrows they grew back looking like shaggy catepillars!

Or maybe they always looked that way…

Thanks for the mention, btw. I’ve teamed up with Alisha Rai to stop the Bree Half of Moira Rogers from selling hair conditioner and flea collars to Alpha Werewolves and thereby putting in motion her plans to take over the world.

That was just a friendly FYI. 😀

So much more can be done with a paranormal storyline IMO

At least 75% of my library is paranormal; there is just such a marvelous variety to choose from. Please don’t enter me in today’s contest, as I have all of the Red Rock Pass, and the Southern Arcana books already.

@Keith Melton: For your information, sir, the flea-repellent hair conditioner for werewolves was MY idea. *sniff*

As for you, Miss Viv, I will teach you how to smush spiders ANYTIME. *hugs*

I would say one third is paranormal. The other two thirds is not just contemporary but also historical and suspense.

I would have to say that my romance bookshelf is about 2/3 paranormal and 1/3 contemporary. The percentage changes to about half and half when you take into account my non-romance books, including the classics I’ve studied for my degrees.
