Image via Wikipedia I thought with tomorrow being our [USA] Independence Day it would be fun to find some information on fourth of July weirdness to share. For some reason, I thought it would be hard to find paranormal bits to share with you; it’s not as if this is Halloween. I was again surprised […]
So the results are in. Most of us agree that it isn’t the actor, it is the makeup that is interfering with out ability to fantasize about Alexander/Eric. One friend did come up with a hunk, Jason Lewis, who would also fill the bill and she suggests the Absolut Hunk picture in particular. You may […]
Is that amazing or what? Perhaps critics of the books, the movies and yes, even the fans should eat some crow. Here is a cute interview of Mr. Lautner holding his own with David Letterman, yesterday, July 1, in two parts. Seriously, I don’t know too many 18 year old kids who are able to […]
Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she is being rudely attacked by a vampire to whom she has not been properly introduced! Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia […]
Brilliant friend to all bloggers featured me last week! Thanks PJV for your help and I’m back! Also see the Crazy-for-books hop, below!
I love the blog hop each week generously hosted by www.crazy=for-books.com. In this forum, bloggers network, learn and help each other. Stating this week we answer a question from Crazy-for-books: My name is Stephanie and I started blogging because I found the “rules” for all fantasy lit, particularly modern vampire, fascinating and I have opinions […]
I saw this at the Bookoholic Zone and I had to replay it for you. The Bookoholic has some great book trailers and reviews.
Ah Eric, We had such hopes. My friend Paula sent me a drawing of a-could-have-been Eric Northman type (right).http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h310/calclan/EricNorthman.jpg I thought I would look and see what is available in the Norse God department (5th Floor, Norse Gods, watch your step). From a blog about Tennis we have THOR (left: http://seshdotcom.wordpress.com/2008/04/01/telling-thor-is-he-the-greatest-of-norse-gods/ This guy, Fandral, below […]
You know how anticipation can result in disappointment? Well, I just got home from Eclipse and I have to say that in my opinion it is technically and performance-wise the best movie of the three. I was not disappointed. Where Hardwicke’s Twilight was impassioned but flawed, and New Moon was cold and a chapter by […]
I read Bite Me by Parker Blue (Kindle Edition) Sunday and found it a delightful cross between Chick-lit and Young Adult with a soupcon of danger and mayhem. There is a bit of sexual tension, but much less than the average teen with access to HBO will have seen. The main character is just 18 […]
Apparently, Ancestry.con has found fangs in a couple of closets, the Princes Royal, the Prince of Public Popularity and the writer that made a time of day the byword of an empire: As much as this story belongs on the third page of The Onion, it actually comes straight from the Associated Press. Last night […]
Well, here I am truly at a loss for words. No, really, I went to edit a post and lost the entire thing that I had spent hours writing yesterday. In truth it has made me feel a bit sick. I will try to regain it from my memory, but I can’t possibly believe I […]
Great post by one of my favorite author bloggers: http://tracycooperposey.com/what-exactly-is-urban-fantasy-and-how-does-it-fit-the-romance-landscape/ On her blog there is also a fabulous post about What to do with your old books – very creative!
First things first: The New York Times Book Review offered a look at The Passage By Justin Cronin, reviewed by Mike Peed. At 766 pages this Ballantine Books offering is, as Mr. Peed says, “a doorstop.” And, it is the first in a trilogy! In this book, vampires take over the world after being created […]
