When I write a sexy paranormal story, the speculative idea is like that little turn of the wrist that makes all the pieces in the kaleidoscope shift a fraction of an inch … and suddenly you see a whole new pattern. The junk inside the kaleidoscope is the same old junk. But because the light is shooting between all those mirrors, an ordinary little piece of life becomes fascinating.

Dear members, I’m sorry to say that, although our blog calendar looks full, with two devils signed up to blog every day, we have had a serious number of missed days in the past ten months.

Please, please, if you are too busy to blog on your scheduled day, let the blogmaster know so that a past entry can be repeated.

Recently, I read two novels that left me chewing over the issue of story size. The two novels were Love On The Run by Katharine Kerr and A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Both were absorbing, with characters I … Continue reading
by Jennifer Stevenson I haven’t always written about sex demons. I don’t always write about sex, not all the time. It just happens that sex is what publishers have asked me for, god knows why, I mean, is everybody obsessed … Continue reading
Even after fifteen years of writing novels, having a new book come out gives me butterflies in the stomach. Eternal is a young adult fantasy, a sequel to Immortal which came out about a year ago from BVC. It was … Continue reading
It’s hard to describe what the characters in my various MAGIC books can do. In the original historical versions, I was dealing with a Georgian setting where even the word “science” is suspect since it could refer to mathematics or phrenology.
