Guest Sasha Summers
Take it away, Sasha.
Thanks for having me on the blog Ciara.
I just saw the Hunger Games movies, which made me start thinking about dystopian books – which made me think about paranormal books. And, if you’re a reader, you know paranormal is huge right now. I know I’m a fan. I read it, watch it on TV and at the movie theater, and I write it. Yes, my paranormal writing is all about Ancient Greece and Mythology, but I know there’s so much out there. And I happily read any and all things related to the delectable smorgasbord of other-worldly awesomeness that it paranormal.
Take your pick:
Vampires – Whether you’re a fan of the sparkling or non-sparkling variety, vampires show no sign of vanishing anytime soon.
Werewolves – Ditto. A lot of werewolves aren’t werewolves at all though – they’ve become shape shifters. And, I think, that makes them shifters vs. true werewolves?
Witches – Black magic or white magic, they might not always fly on broomsticks (actually I haven’t read a book using that mode of transportation besides a certain boy wizard…) but covens abound on the bookshelf.
Fairy – We’re not talking about the Tink variety either, for the most part. We’re talking about the pseudo human, often sword wielding, fae that have mighty courts, wars, and – oftentimes – forbidden love affairs with non-fae.
Dragons – these magnificent beasts are quite frequently hottie shape shifters centuries old and heavy on the charm.
Goblins, trolls, and gargoyles – oh my! (Sorry, I had to!) Though frequently supporting characters, these little critters offer a whole new realm of possibilities.
I’m a fan – A BIG FAN. And I look forward to seeing where the paranormal world goes next.
What about you? Is there one type of book your interested in? One you’re addicted to?
Or one you’re sick of?
Medusa, A Love Story is coming soon from Crescent Moon Press. Here’s an excerpt:
It’s said love can change a person. Medusa wasn’t always a monster…
Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She’s no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves… and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.
Ariston goes to war with a full heart… and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.
Poseidon will use Greece’s war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.
Thanks so much for having me today Ciara!
