Welcome to the Paranormal Romance Writers
The paranormal genre has recently exploded, with a multitude of movies, television shows and books. With the market ripe for the picking, writing a paranormal novel is a tempting idea. However, with the multitude of books already available and more on the way, it is important to create a novel that stands apart from the rest.
With the Twilight series, the Anita Blake books, the Sookie Stackhouse novels and many other recent paranormal works of fiction, it may seem like the genre is over-done. The same could be said about novels about WWII or mother-daughter relations. What saves a novel is its characters. If the reader finds your character to be a weaker Sookie Stackhouse, he or she may keep reading, but probably won't come back for round two. Make sure each character is fully him or herself, with history, motivations, beliefs, faults and strengths. You can write the 100th story about vampires of this year, but if your characters pull the reader in, you will have a strong fan-base.

BookGirlR doesn't usually read short stories. She enjoys her stories with a bit more meat on their bones. But she made an exception for 2 reasons: 1) Mermaids and 2) many of her favorite authors have stories here. Read the review at BookGirl's BookNook Blog

***Free on Kindle Unlimited***

“A titillating opening to a space-opera romance series…given the number of John’s siblings, the Sea-anan saga has the potential to keep readers entertained for several installments.” —Kirkus Reviews 

Seacat John McCall labels the attack on the Sea-anan Empire as a nightmare. He escapes the enemy’s invasion, only to find himself stranded on a distant planet called Surreal. Tormented by thoughts of his family being massacred or captured by the enemy, he focuses on returning to aid them until he experiences a mind-boggling kiss that can only come from the one he is meant to share his life with. To ease the terror he feels for his family, John seeks the identity of his secret admirer. He quickly learns the true meaning of nightmare when he discovers his soul mate is of “the mist.” 

Jasira Eversole is drawn to the powerfully built outlander sitting at the king’s table. Unable to resist the need to see him again, she enters the warrior’s room while he sleeps. John’s rugged good looks and chiseled body compel Jasira to reach out and touch him. Being of the mist, Jasira knows she will not be able to feel John, but she cannot resist his pull. The richness of John’s hair, the firmness of his muscles, and the clean scent of his skin all take Jasira off guard. She swiftly realizes John is her intended mate. Now, Jasira must somehow convince the young warrior that they are two halves of one soul without chasing him off Surreal, leaving her to a lonely existence as mist.

Comment by Susanne Leist on March 19, 2015 at 9:58am



A paradise is now lost and gone,
Never to be found again.
Whomever the demons come upon,
No more peace but only pain.

Like a cold witches’ brew.
An Oasis for all.
Now a hell for the few,
Who remain to tell all.

Warm winds turn cold
As all become prey.
The young and old.
For them we must pray. 

Hell hath no fury
Like a demon scorned.
There is no jury
For a small town mourned.

Who’ll save Oasis
From ‘The Dead’ demons?
Who will now face us,
More dead or demons?

Pray for us.
We are alone
Come save us.
We must atone.
