Guest Post: Daniel Bensen

Today I have for you a guest post from a fellow science afflicted author who I’ve had some very cool biology conversations with on a writing forum we both frequent. If you ever wanted to know the how something as amazing and sophisticated as flight evolved, read on!   How Dinosaurs can fix the Evolution of Flight by Daniel Bensen When I pitched my “How Dinosaurs can fix your…” series of essays to the good people of the Codex writers’ forum, I expected (and mostly got) requests for writerly advice such as “How Dinosaurs can fix your Routine” or...

Guest Post by Gail Z Martin: Creating Fictional Holidays

Posted by on Oct 28, 2013 | 0 comments

Today I’ve got a special world building treat for the writers out there. Gail Z. Martin stops by my blog to talk about making holidays in fictional worlds. Without further babbling on my end, here’s Gail: Creating Fictional Holidays by Gail Z. Martin One of the things I love about world-building is the chance to create entirely new holidays.  I personally believe that you can never have enough holidays, so the chance to invent a few of my own is really too much to resist. As with any world-building, holidays need to fit into the belief structure of the place and people...

Amazon to Local Writer: “Neener Neener.”

Since 2010, I have released two romance novels, five erotic-romance shorts, a...

Posted by on Oct 20, 2011 | 10 comments

Boy do I have a treat for you today. What, I ask you, is better than vampires? How about vampires and steampunk. See, I knew that would get your attention. I have a guest blog today from author S.J. Davis, who wrote a book called Invisible Sun that features both! Check out the description: In Victorian London, at the beginning of the Industrial Age and the height of man’s obsession with alchemy, scientists gave birth to the foundation of modern genetic science. As steampunk airships cut across the foggy city of Gravesend, vampires are brought to life. But instead of scavengers prowling the...

For your reading pleasure today, I have a guest post by Urban Fantasy/Paranormal author, Ashley M. Christman. Here’s the blurb for her newest offering, Nightingale: Being Sidhe is hard, but a Sidhe without a heartbeat? Life is lucrative and easy for Dr. Grace Caldwell–daughter of vampire father and fey mother–until her ex-boyfriend, FBI agent Jack Montgomery, blackmails her into helping him solve a prostitute’s murder.
