The Real Ghosts of Savannah, Georgia
I know, I know, the title of this guest post sounds like the name of a reality show. When it comes to paranormal activity in Savannah, Georgia though, reality is often stranger than fiction. In fact, a reality show about the ghosts of Savannah has real potential…perhaps it’s time for me to trade in my career as an author and head to Hollywood. Read the rest of this entry
Vampire’s Trill by Lorelei Bell
Lorelei Bell has created another unique and mesmerizing mystery masterwork that tops its prequel Vampire Ascending in drama, fast-paced action, love, passion, heartache, and devastation. New friends, new adventures, shocking revelations, and harrowing experiences make for riveting reading in this second installment of the Sabrina Strong Series.
Sabrina learns more details – through Vasyl’s recounting of his human and vampire life of what her role as a sibyl means and how the past and the future will come together. She finally learns what role Vasyl has played in his search for the next sibyl and why she is so tremendously important.
As Sabrina’s partner, Dante, puts himself at risk to help all of mankind, Sabrina learns why newcomer, Bill Gannon, is so interested in her, and she works to protect Bjorn Tremayne from losing it all. Sabrina’s past catches up to her, and she discovers that not everyone is, or was, what she thought. New characters, some kind and trustworthy, and some not, contribute to a captivating story line, and Sabrina finds herself on a journey she never thought possible.

Sudden Death Overtime by Steve Vernon
Meet Sprague Deacon – one of the toughest old-time hockey players who ever skated upon a rink of hand-poured ice. Sprague was born and raised and he expects to die here on the Northern Labrador coast. What he did not expect was a tour bus full of vampires – none of whom glitter in the least bit – to pull into his town and begin lowering the population level – one corpse at a time. Sprague and his three best friends – an over-the-hill never-say quit bush league hockey team from Northern Labrador go toe-to-tooth with a tour bus full of vampires in an immortal-stakes showdown of street hockey? For the answer – throw Paul Newman’s Slapshot into a blender with Steven Niles 30 Days of Night and hit frappe!’
Best of all – you don’t even need to be much of a hockey fan to enjoy this yarn.
Recently I did a guest post over at Bloody Good Vampires, discussing which was more evil; humans or vampires. In that article I barely began to scratch the surface of humanity’s crimes. As I commence research for my next book, humanity’s innate ability to cause harm to itself becomes ever more apparent.

My 10 Favourite “Any” Things – Dennis Boyer
When Rebeka invited me to participate in her blog she gave me several different options – a guest post, featuring my book, posting an author bio, etc. But her invitation also included a subtle challenge, daring me to “be brave.” Well, never one to back down from a challenge (I am super-competitive by nature), that was what I immediately responded to. The challenge seemed simple enough – post your ten favorite “anythings”. Should be a snap, I thought. But as I gave the topic some thought, I began to realize this was indeed a heavy gauntlet I chose to pick up. It’s pretty hard to limit oneself to just ten things when considering your all-time favorite things. My first thought is to ignore the heavy stuff – you know my family, my relationship with God, the blessing of being born into a free society… Instead I’ll present my favorites with the caveat that these are my favorite “frivolous” things. The things which don’t necessarily have the most depth of meaning, but the simple things I find pleasure in. Well, here’s my best crack at it – enjoy. Read the rest of this entry
