I'm Sick!

Can you hear the plaintive whine from wherever you are?

I'm such an awful sick person, miserable and helpless. But really, I am on the verge of dying and all, so cut me some slack.

Part of the reason I hate it so much is because I don't get sick very often. Not like this. Maybe once a year--if that. I can't remember feeling like this in a LONG time. (more whining)

So you're wondering now if this is the only purpose of my blog today and I guess...yes. Yes it is. I'm too foggy to think of anything meaningful to write, especially since this last week has been so busy that now I've fallen even further behind schedule. Don't be surprised if you are reading Forever Immortal a while from now and all of a sudden all the characters are hacking up a lung and fall into bed with a fever of 106 instead of falling into bed for any other reason.

GUEST AUTHORS: Tickle My Fantasy from Samhain Publishing

JK Coi: I'm very happy to introduce the authors of the Samhain Tickle My Fantasy anthology. These are four very funny books, so I had to ask these funny authors what drew them to write romantic comedy--and with a parnormal twist...

Witches Anonymous
Misty Evans

What’s it like to write paranormal comedy?

I love comedy of any kind and paranormal comedy is a real treat. Typically, I write heart-stopping CIA thrillers, so when Amy, the heroine in Witches Anonymous, showed up with a bag of Dove chocolates and a sob story about the Devil, I knew I had to take a break from spies and traitors and write her story. Her wise-cracking, Witch-Lit personality was a beauty, and besides, there isn’t much I won’t do for a Dove chocolate.

Amy’s one vice in life is lust. She lusts after dark chocolate, sinful men and designer shoes. Who could resist such a great character? Is she my alter-ego? Quite possibly. Her good heart and taste in cool shoes definitely comes from me, but her perchance for trouble…well, let’s just say, the Devil’s in the details!

The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo, & the Poltergeist Accountant
Vivi Andrews

What’s it like to write paranormal comedy?

I always squirm when I tell people I write comedy, because I just can’t think of myself as a comic. I am so not the guy standing on stage with a microphone delivering pithy one-liners. I’m the girl in the back row muttering snarky comebacks under her breath. Mouthy, sassy, smart-alecky remarks and a crippling fear of speaking in public? Yeah, that’s me. A comedian? Um… not so much.

That said, writing a paranormal comedy was so much fun it’s probably illegal in five states. (I’ll let you guess which five.) To me, the first rule of writing comedy is the same as the primary rule of writing paranormals – Anything goes.

You want nekkid ghosts and supernatural sexual frustration? You got it! You want a dweeby accountant to turn into a poltergeist and potentially rip a hole in the fabric of the universe from a mafia warehouse in Jersey? Go for it! No holds barred, baby. Check your good sense at the door. Let the ridiculous and the fantastic out to play together. Forget what’s possible. Paranormal comedy is all about bringing the impossibilities to life. That’s why I love it.
MK Mancos

What’s it like to write paranormal comedy?

I consider myself a pretty funny person. Usually my sense of humor is strongest if I’m riffing over a situation with my trademark sarcasm that pours from my soul like nitrous oxide—you know, laughing gas. Even my darkest books have had the odd bit of humor thrown in for good measure. I can’t help it. It’s just the way I roll.

However, when Samhain Publishing opened their call for submissions for paranormal romantic comedy in the Tickle My Fantasy anthology, I have to admit to a certain amount of trepidation on my part. I wondered if I could maintain a high level of humor throughout a story and not just the occasional one off when a character was feeling stressed and particularly flippant. I had the perfect scenario—a talentless witch playing matchmaker to a host of the city’s paranormal beings—and we all know the inherent hilarity of dating members of your own species. There’s got to be loads of humor when one slaps two very different paranormal beings together in a social situation.

From there the situations almost grew organically from the plot. Combine that with a healthy dose of looking at each situation at its most absurd and the comedy falls into place.

Carolina Wolf
Sela Carsen

What’s it like to write paranormal comedy?

When I started reading romance, I was all about the historicals. The first romance I wrote was a historical, in fact. A Regency that will never see the light of day. So how did I switch to paranormal romantic comedies?

Easy. I finally started writing what made me laugh.

My favorite stories are often the kind where you have ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Folks who are human through and through, no matter what kind of fur they may sprout, or whether they still have a heartbeat. People screw up. They make mistakes. They’re not perfect. And those imperfections make not only for great conflict, but for great comedy.

Mel Brooks, my personal icon of great comedy, said this, “Good comedy is never frivolous. It’s based on human experience, on human adventure, on human feelings. So it has to be profound.”

Since there’s nothing more profound that love, then love is the greatest comedy of all. Love is about exposing yourself – your flaws, your fur, your fangs – then hoping that the other person won’t laugh at you, but laugh with you.

Because what’s love without a lot of laughter?

GUEST AUTHOR: Meg Benjamin

Writing Pop Culture

In one of my WIPs, my hero is a private eye (he ends up chasing a demon, so it’s not exactly a traditional set up). Because he’s a private eye (and because I love film noir), he makes a lot of references to Sam Spade and his various lifestyle choices (treacherous blondes, for example). When I sent a chapter to my critique group for comments, one of my CPs told me bluntly that no one in my audience would know who Sam Spade was and that I should change the references to one of the guys in Supernatural or one of the cops in Law and Order.

Now, leaving aside for the moment that fact that neither Supernatural nor Law and Order qualify as film noir (and that they’d be totally off the mark for what I was trying to do in the book), I wondered if she had a legitimate point. Must all pop culture references be current? If you use references to pop culture from another era, do you risk losing readers who don’t know who Sam Spade is?

For me, the problem with very current pop culture references is that they immediately date your book. I’ve read books from the nineties that made references to the Macarena that made me go, “huh?” before I remembered that it was the hot record one summer. The same thing happens with references to movies that seemed like classics at the time but that didn’t stick in people’s memory for whatever reason. I remember including a line from the first Batman in one WIP only to have all my readers ask me what the hell that referred to.

On the other hand, it seems to me that some pop culture references, like Sam Spade, are iconic. People who watch old movies on TCM will know Sam from The Maltese Falcon. Others will know him from references they’ve seen in other books. At this point, Sam is a kind of shorthand reference for a type of private eye, just like Sherlock Holmes is a shorthand reference for a type of reasoning and a detection process.

But my CP’s point is still worth considering. Will younger readers in particular know who Sam is? If they don’t, will they be turned off by references to him? I’d argue not necessarily. I’ve read books by people like Sara Smith that included references to lots of places and things I didn’t know. This happens quite a bit in historicals, for example. When I first started reading regencies, I had to Google Almack’s to figure out what was going on. Similarly, some paranormals like to feature supernatural beings that I don’t recognize. Laurell Hamilton’s Merrie Gentry series had me looking up all kinds of stuff.

If it really matters to the plot and I can’t figure out what something is by context, I’ll hit Google or Wikipedia and find out what I’m missing, but sometimes I’ll just let it go and keep reading. I think most of us cut authors a certain amount of slack, letting them make references to new things and sometimes learning stuff we didn’t know before. So if readers don’t know who Sam is, maybe they’ll find out. And then maybe they’ll rent The Maltese Falcon from Netflix. And then, as they say, my job here is done.

First Review for Dark Immortal

I was so excited to receive the first review for Dark Immortal in my inbox yesterday afternoon from fellow author and reviewer Kimber Chin. She told me what a "stinker" I am for making her cry (he he he), but offered to give me this quote, which I'm happy to share:

"If you and your husband met today as strangers, would you fall in love again? That is the gripping question Dark Immortal asks. And wowsers, does it ask it well. The story of Alric and Diana's rekindled romance had this cynical businesswoman bawling her eyes out. Dark Immortal is THAT emotionally satisfying."

This has made my week, thank you!

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Today Allison Knight has interviewed Alric, the hero of Dark Immortal on her blog here. (NOTE: Sorry everyone, I've received word that this interview is being rescheduled for Thursday--Check back in)

I'm blogging at the Vauxhall Vixens about my dark hero, and I also gave author Kimber Chin a short quote about the first romance novel I ever read, which appears in her post on the Night Owl Romance blog. Check it out.

So tell me, do you remember the first romance you ever read?

Oh, and don't forget...

DARK IMMORTAL is now available!!

Buy it in ebook at Linden Bay Romance here!

and at My Bookstore and More here

All this week, we're celebrating the release of Dark Immortal
(or at least I am, lol)

Anyone who leaves me a comment either here, or at any of the blogs that I'm visiting all this week will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a free ecopy of the book! Names will all go into a hat on Saturday evening and a winner will randomly be chosen and announced here on Sunday evening.

So today, come on by for my post at the Romance Junkies, and my interview with the Paperback Diva.

Sunday, February 15, 2009


Five years of happiness, erased in one vicious act of violence.

Diana freed Alric from his prison and the insanity of his own mind, offering him the kind of love only a fool would deny. Now she lies broken and comatose from a vampire attack, locked deep inside herself where he cannot reach her.

Awakening in a strange bed, Diana has no memory of how she got there. The huge, muscled man leaning over her is straight out of nightmares full of blood and pain. Married to him? It can’t be true…even if her body craves his touch, and the anguish in his eyes shatters something deep inside her.

Alric has no intention of giving up on the woman who never stopped fighting for him. His one hope is that time will heal her mind. But with a demon god poised to tip the balance of power, time is not on their side…

Friday, February 13, 2009


A big thanks to J.K. Coi for inviting me to come blog.

When I was working on The Bargain, I had a rare chance to do research with my husband. (Not the way you’re thinking. LOL.) Like the hero in my story, my husband is a doctor, although in a different specialty. The history of medicine is a hobby of my husband’s, so he enjoyed sharing with me what it was like to be a doctor back in the 1800’s. I’d like to share with you what I discovered.

The first Medical College in America was founded at the University of Pennsylvania in 1765. American medicine in the mid-19th century was a far cry from today’s curriculum of 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 3-6 years of residency training.

Most aspiring doctors would spend a few months in a medical school for 2 terms, often without having a college degree, then spend a year or two apprenticed to a practicing doctor where they would learn the practical aspects of patient care. Medical students were renowned for their raucous and drunken behavior. Most medical schools in America were privately owned and run by individual doctors.

Medical techniques were still rudimentary. No anesthesia, save for perhaps intoxicating the patient with liquor, was available at that time for surgery – even ether was not yet available. A surgeon was prized for his ability to perform operations quickly due to the pain, and a good surgeon could, for example, amputate a leg in about 2 minutes.

Antibiotics were still decades in the future, so post-op infections were the rule, with mortality rates for even simple operations running about 50%. Wounds were usually cauterized with boiling oil or hot pokers after surgery. The operating theaters in hospitals were often located in towers or in a separate building so that other patients could not hear the screams of the surgery patients. Surgeries of the abdomen or chest were uniformly fatal.

Medicine theory was still grounded in the passive, nature-based principles of Hippocrates, a Greek physician from 4th century BC, and Galen, the 2nd century AD Roman physician. Some herbs were available in 19th century America and some plants were used, such as the foxglove plant which provided digitalis for dropsy, or congestive heart failure, but the mechanism of action was unknown and doses were not precise.

Hospital wards were unsanitary to say the least – often 3-4 patients shared a bed, and one could often awaken to find oneself sleeping with the corpse of a bedfellow who had passed on during the night. Doctors had little knowledge of the germ theory, which was doubted and ridiculed by some doctors, so handwashing between patient visits, or even between the doctor doing an autopsy and examining his next patient, was rare. No wonder people would do most anything to avoid going into a hospital when they could.

With standard medicine in such a state, many people sought out herbalists or homeopaths who, even if their nostrums were ineffective, at least did little harm and let the patient heal by themselves if possible. This was preferable to the frequent bloodletting or provision of emetics and strong purgatives to make the patient vomit or have diarrhea which were among the “heroic medicine” treatments most doctors used at the time.

Of necessity, medical practice advanced during the Civil War, possibly due to the sheer number of patients. Attention began to be paid to basic hygiene as cause and effect perhaps became more readily apparent, and army physicians began to compare notes on epidemics and infection. Slowly, new methods of dealing with traumatic injuries were developed and patient care overall began to improve, although it was still primitive. Some believe that medicine advanced more during the Civil War than during any other four-year period in history.

My latest release, The Bargain, takes place in a Union field hospital in the closing days of the Civil War. It is the jumping off point for my Western series, Finding Home. Researching the medical practices of the time gave me a greater sense of admiration for the doctors of the Old West and what they went through to try to help others.

I have an autographed copy of The Bargain to give away. I’ll draw a winner from all the comments. Thanks in advance for stopping by to leave a comment.

The Bargain is available in print & e book from

I'm visiting Deborah Cooke's blog today, so come on by and say hello!

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

GUEST AUTHOR: Deborah Cooke

JK Coi: I'm so pleased that Deborah and I are sharing guest blogs once again (Come visit me at her blog tomorrow). It's worked out well because we seem to be sharing release dates too, and this February it is the third book from each of our series.

I asked Deborah if she wouldn't mind telling us about her writing process a little bit, especially with respect to this series. What surprises did she have in store for her as her characters changed from just a name on a page to men and women with hopes and dreams, pains and baggage?

There are essentially two kinds of writers in the world (at least for the sake of this post). There are writers who plan out every detail of a book before they write it, and create very intricate outlines in advance. These writers are often called "plotters" because they work out the plot ahead of time. Then there are writers who wing it, who make up the story as they go. The second type of writer is often called a "pantser", as in, creating by the seat of the pants.

Editors, however, expect authors to write synopses before writing books - contracts are typically negotiated on the basis of a synopsis, especially after the author has sold a few books to that editor. And pantsers have a hard time with this part of the business, because their minds just don't naturally work in a plotting kind of a way.

I know, because I've always been a pantser.

Part of the reason for that is the magic. For me, there's magic in a book when the characters come to life. This can happen at any point but usually means that the characters do something unpredictable, or refuse to do what's in the outline, usually because they have a better idea than I do. This sounds weird and it is weird, but essentially the characters that have come out of my imagination become themselves - they leave my control and become entities in themselves. (This explains why so many authors have conversations or even arguments with invisible people.)

I love that moment when my characters find their autonomy. I love when they become like people in my mind, like people I know, even though it usually means that they run off with the plot and change it to suit themselves. This can be annoying, but the fact is that they always have really good ideas about how things should work. Over time, I've come to wait for that moment.

And although I've learned to write the synopses required by my editors, I'm always reluctant to plot too much - an extensive and detailed outline means for me that writing the book is more like filling in a spreadsheet, and it means that my characters are less likely to "flesh out" and become opinionated. Maybe they dislike outlines as much as I do!

So, when J.K. suggested that we talk about whether characters surprise us, I laughed. The whole point for me is my characters surprising me, of them seizing the plot and changing it. When that happens, the book comes alive for me and I know it will also come alive for my readers.

These Pyr in the Dragonfire series, are particularly bad - or good, depending how you look at it - at doing this. They have changed the stories I thought we would tell over and over again. They, typically, leave me in the dark, then cough up the most intriguing details, details that change everything just when I thought I knew where I was going with the book. Erik (KISS OF FATE) does this to me over and over again. I knew right from the beginning, when he walked into Sara's bookstore in KISS OF FIRE, that he knew more than he was telling. He wouldn't confide in me, but boy, did he tell Eileen a lot that I didn't know! I guess he was motivated to win her trust. (I guess he knows he already has mine.) Erik shares a lot of the history of the Pyr with Eileen in KISS OF FATE, as well as big chunks of his personal history. I didn't know what would happen with Sigmund until it did, and I certainly didn't realize what Sophie had planned. Phew! They shocked me over and over again in this book.

This is really exciting to me. To me, it's a sign that the story is vital and that the characters are lifelike - even if it means that I look like I'm arguing with myself all the time. Did they do it again? You bet. I thought in KISS OF FIRE that Delaney was dead - didn't you? Then he turned up in KISS OF FURY, drawn to Donovan's firestorm. Hmm. And he's in KISS OF FATE, too, fighting Magnus's subliminal command to do evil to the other Pyr. He's definitely interesting and definitely facing a lot of internal conflict with those nightmares -- guess who took the starring role in Dragonfire #4, in a development that completely surprised me?

Right. Delaney's book is WINTER KISS, coming in November, and my editor says it's the best Dragonfire title yet. I think it's because the characters stole the script and replaced it with their own.

Do you think you can tell when characters have come to life for an author? What makes a book seem more vivid and real to you as a reader? If you're a writer, are you a plotter or a pantser? And do your stories ever get away from you?

Deborah Cooke

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

I just wanted to fill everyone in on what's coming up this week! It's going to be exciting!

Tomorrow my special guest is bestselling author Deborah Cooke, who is going to be talking about the newest release from her Dragonfire series, Kiss of Fate!

Ah, but that's just the beginning because on Thursday I'm going to be a guest on her blog here, to gush about my release, Dark Immortal!

Friday I have another fabulous guest--Author Cathy Stang, who will be telling us about her new regency release, More Than a Wife.

Then, before you head out for your romantic dates with those sexy better halfs this Valentine's Day, try and stop by Chelle Cordero's blog where I'll be talking about how I don't mind that my man is the most unromantic person on the face of the earth when it comes to Valentine's Day.

Then, of course, Sunday is RELEASE DAY and Dark Immortal is here!!

Now...on another note, I've probably mentioned this a time or two...I'm a total speed freak.

But it doesn't stop there. *sigh* I love anything that kicks up the adrenaline to uber-levels. A wild ride on a motorcycle, jumping out of a plane at 3,500 feet (granted, I haven't done that one in a long while), or rock climbing the gorge.

I can't get enough of that feeling. My husband says I'm crazy and he's afraid that I'm the one who'll be having a mid-life crisis in a few more years, but I tell him that no matter whatever adventures I chase, I'll always need someone to call me home, and even better--a partner in crime! He seemed to like that.

In celebrating my newfound love of my kickboxing class, I bring you Lori Foster's My Man Michael. Based around a group of UFC style fighters, this series rocks...and I have been eagerly awaiting the newest instalment.

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Got this in an email the other day. *sigh* I wish it wasn't so true... :)

25 Ways to Tell You're a Grown-Up

Friday, February 06, 2009


Living Off The Grid

 Invisible_Kimber_Chin Before I talk about my new book, Invisible, let me first say that I'm a serious J.K. Coi fangirl. You know a writer rocks it when I read her paranormal novels. I mean, paranormal novels have dead (or undead) people and blood and everything. I have to close my eyes during the violent parts and that's really, really difficult when reading (much easier when watching movies). All this is worth it because J.K.'s characterization is mind bending!

Okay, gushing over. Back to my own frightening tale…

As anyone who has ever applied for credit knows, our financial information is connected by giant databases (from space – no, not from space but that would make a good story, wouldn't it?). When you apply for a Visa Card, your application becomes visible to every creditor you currently have, including MasterCard, American Express, your bank, Lord And Taylor, Wal-Mart, oh, and, of course, the government. You use a loyalty card when buying a jar of peanut butter, and that loyalty card company tells retailers, manufacturers, credit card companies, oh, and, of course, the government. All these people now know you prefer smooth over chunky. Freaky, isn't it? Better than giant databases from space 'cause these giant databases are local. Situated right here on Earth.

Anyhoo… the fun really starts when your peanut butter purchases and your Visa applications and your medical files are looked at together. Companies use common pieces of identification like social security numbers, phone numbers, addresses, to happily connect this information. A pretty good profile is built on who you are and what you're likely to do next (Big Brother styles). The web of interconnected databases is called 'The Grid.'

Right or wrong, this is the world we live in.

Or at least some of us live in this world.

You see, there are thousands, perhaps millions, of people who live off the grid. No one knows how many because… well… they are untraceable. No, we're not talking illegal immigrants though they tend to live off the grid too. These are otherwise regular residents like you and I, born here, likely gonna die here. They don't have social security numbers. They don't have credit cards. They don't pay taxes.

In other words, they don't exist. They're invisible.

Maeve, my heroine in Invisible, isn't a purist. She does pay taxes (or at least her corporation's corporation pays taxes). She does semi-exist. However, her job (paid in cash, of course) is to hide people on the grid or take them off it entirely. What kind of people? Abused wives escaping nasty husbands, rich people who want to make it a little more difficult for someone to sue their a$$es off, victims of identity theft.

It is a crazy, unique, mind bending way to live. I wrote Invisible to be a standalone novel but found this world too darn fascinating to leave at one book. Plus my pre-editor told me that if I didn't write a certain knife wielding vigilante's love story she was going to quit. So expect a follow up novel next year. She's a great pre-editor. Gotta keep her happy.

Excerpt from Invisible:

“You want me to disappear.”

“No.” She laughed that wonderful laugh of hers and his disgruntled mood lightened. “You’d have to do a lot more than that to disappear, Hagen.”

Right. “No phone,” he guessed.

“No calls at all.”

No calls at all? Couldn’t be. “What about a payphone?”

Maeve shot down that idea, shaking her head, her hair brushing against his shirt. “A good investigator would be watching all calls to family members. She could track the call, finding the phone. It would be enough to eventually locate you.”

Why did that excite him? The thought of Maeve finding him? He was one sick puppy. “I’d have to keep moving then.” To escape her.

“The more you move, the more likely you are to make a mistake. Better to disappear once well.”

But she would catch him, she wouldn’t give up until she did, tenacious, little…“Do people disappear often?”

“Every single day.”
