Saturday Conversations: AADSAV

Saturday Conversations: AADSAV Authors After Dark 2013 Today I’m hijacking the Saturday Conversation spot to bring you a recap of my trip to Authors After Dark 2013: Savannah Nights! I had another wonderful time at AAD, and if I had to summarize in one word this year compared with the previous two, it would be MELLOW. The entire trip had a much more low-key atmosphere for a few reasons. First: the weather. It rained A LOT–almost the entire time we were there. It made it difficult to get out of the hotel and see Savannah. Second: the hotel. We were a little isolated from the attractions of Savannah, and with the rotten...

Saturday Conversations: Violence in Urban Fantasy

Saturday Conversations: Violence in Urban Fantasy Thresholds for Violence in Urban Fantasy Books Greetings to you all from Authors After Dark 2013: Savannah Nights! I am having a wonderful time connecting and reconnecting with authors, publishers, readers and bloggers. Although the weather hasn’t been great, we’ve been living it up here at the hotel. On Friday, I attended a fabulous panel discussion titled KICK ASS, TAKE NAMES, featuring Amanda Bonilla, Jeri Smith-Ready, Kendall Grey, Kait Ballenger, Amanda Carlson and Dianna Love. The panel focused on having a “kick-ass” heroine, and they discussed questions like “Do you enjoy writing fight scenes?” and discussed what aspects of their characters, other than physical strength, make them strong women. But...

AAD Author Spotlight & Giveaway: Melanie Card

AAD Author Spotlight & Giveaway: Melanie Card Hello Readers! Today I bring you author Melanie Card. Melanie has always been drawn to story telling. In fact, she says she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t telling a story in her head or on paper. In grade school, she had journal writing time which she turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that she loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that she nurtured this love and started her journey as a writer. Melanie writes fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of...
