Before I get to the motivation behind Being Human, I just wanted to say I got an email about Vampire Books for Blood and over $3300 was raised for the American Red Cross and Canadian Blood Services! Way to go everyone! =D
There are some scenes that just give you the warm and fuzzie feelings when you read it. One scene in particular from Being Human ALWAYS got me. I can picture it so clearly and see it play out like a scene from a movie. An added bonus is I also have a song that goes with it.
(This is another older post from Blogspot I'm sharing here. I wish Weebly had a way for me to transfer all those posts here, but they don't.)
I used to always make Tommy blog. It was fun getting back into his head. Sometimes I miss that clueless vampire. I thought it'd be fun to reshare this old post. It's also a list post, so bonus! I hear readers love those.
I have a treat for you today. A couple weeks ago, I learned that May 24th was considered Brothers Day and I thought, "Hey, I have a book with two brothers. Identical twins to be exact!" How could I let this day pass without celebrating?
I could not, of course!
Yes, you heard right. You get a cookie for this. Just let me shove it through the computer speakers... Crap, it's not working. Okay, let me amend this. You clicked this so in YOUR honor *I* will eat a cookie for you. Trust me, it tastes delicious.
All silliness aside, I do have a favor to ask. May 24th is Brothers Day and since my YA, Being Human, has a theme of brothers, I thought I should do some promotion to coincide with it.
Back when I published Being Human in 2011, my writing friend, MB Mulhall, made these mock posters for Vampire Forces. One of the things I love about movies is the details that go into creating the world. I always imagined if Being Human was a movie, there would be these kinds of details put into putting the story on the big screen. Vampire Forces would have badges that IDed them and they would have posters in places like schools reminding people that vampires were dangerous.
Shhh, don't tell, MB. She didn't ask me to do this but I am. >.> This is what she gets for giving me an ARC to review. =P It's been ages since I've blogged a book review too.
Given I'm a supernatural creature junkee, I enjoyed this story. Vampires, werewolves, demons, and more! But, also, it was an interesting premise. We've had humans raised by the undead, but never had that human have a job running errands for the supernatural creatures. That gave the story a unique twist and allowed the glimpses into the world Ellie lives in we might not otherwise get if she didn't have to walk a couple of hell hounds or take Selkie pelts to the dry cleaner.
The month of March is going to be filled with Angels, but I'm going to take the spotlight away from Michael for a day to show you something I did recently that I'm kind of proud of. I made a book cover for my YA LGBT Paranormal (is there any other kinds of story worth writing?) story, Out of Secrets.
If you know me, then it might not be a surprise. I was an art major for a little while and had plans on being an artist. But I SUUUUUUUCK at Photoshop (or Gimp.) It's not for the lack of trying. I just can't wrap my brain around the damn program.
So when I say I made a book cover, it's a big deal. I mean, look at it. LOOK!
