My Gothic Romance

Last weekend, Brian and I went to the Vampire Ball PDX, and we had a blast!

This one above is my favorite, as it captures perfectly the way we look at each…

Review: “Delightful” and “Exciting”

Bitten by Books just released their review for Book 3 and 4 of the Rowan of the Wood fantasy series, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Special thanks to Lori who has reviewed all four books so far. Although she didn’t like the third book, Fire of the Fey, as much, I’m quite grateful she…

Rowan of the Crisp

10 Technologies Vampires Could Use to Lure Their Prey

ORIGINAL POST Considering how profoundly it’s changed our lives, it’s small wonder that high tech has infiltrated the furthest reaches of society, and beyond. Consider the vampire.

Emerging Author Spotlight: Evelyn Lafont

What Joss Whedon Taught Me About Storytelling
