Paromantasy is shining the spotlight on an amazing and uber talented paranormal romance author, Edie Ramer. Want to know what you would get if paranormal romance met Chick-Lit? You would get Cattitude! This book has it all! It's quirky, fun, dangerous, mysterious and is a total attention grabber. I could not peel myself away from this book! Sacha Anders is a psychic on the run after being a witness to murder; Belle is a cat that has it all, especially with an owner as glorious as Max. But when Caroline, a conveying widow, decides she wants Max as her future husband she decides that the cat must go! When Sacha and Belle's worlds collide- their lives are changed forever! They switched bodies and they don't know how. Belle finds herself in a human body and falling in love with her former owner and now savior Max.

Guess what? Edie is giving away 3 e-copies of Cattitutde! See below for your chance to win this amazing book. Check back tomorrow for my review!

Let's give a warm welcome to Edie Ramer!


Tell us about yourself.
I’m a classic Libra. I want everything to be balanced and beautiful—which doesn’t happen in my life or my characters’. I’m the middle child of 5, so I’m a peacemaker yet I’m assertive. (And I’m sure my younger brother would dispute the “peacemaker” statement. My husband might give me his “look.” lol)

I started writing in the 1990’s, selling short stories in the mystery genre. In addition to non-fiction articles, I wrote verses for greeting cards and have a drawer filled with greeting cards for most occasions.

When did you know that you wanted to be a writer?
I was reading by the time I was four. At the age of eight, I was reading my mother’s books. I was also a daydreamer. Combine those two, and I was a writer but didn’t know it. One day my husband came home from work and told me he’d lost his job. As if something switched on in my mind, I started writing a book that night. Which I never sold, of course. It was a good thing he found another job. But that’s how I began.

Where did you get the idea for Cattitude from?
We’d always been dog people, and for the first time we’d gotten a cat. I didn’t expect to fall in love with her, but I did. She sits on my lap often when I’m typing, purring. I think she’s sending me subliminal messages: “Me, me, me, it’s all about me.”

I love quirky characters and a cat heroine is about as quirky as I could get. So I went with it. From the beginning, it felt right. I think I was channeling my inner cat diva.

Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
This is tough. There are so many great authors. I love all of Jayne Ann Krentz’s books, in all her pseudonyms. I think J.K. Rowling is a genius! When I read the last Harry Potter book, I was dumbfounded at the way she tied up all the loose ends. Just brilliant. In paranormal/urban fiction, Charlaine Harris, Cynthia Eden, Jennifer Estep and Karin Harlow are all terrific. My critique partner Michelle Diener is one of the best writers I know. Her Tudor historical, Illuminations, will be out late next spring. It’s based on real people, and it’s a page turner.

What books are you reading now?
A Victorian romance, Wicked Becomes You by Meredith Duran, which is very good. I just finished a YA, Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter. It’s the fourth in her Gallagher Girl series, and it’s excellent.

Are you working on any other projects we should watch out for?
Dead People, which was my American Title V final book, should be out in a few weeks. It’s about a brooding songwriter who wants to give his newly found daughter a normal home—only to discover his new house is haunted—and a ghost whisperer who thinks men are hard and dead people are easy.

A friend who’s a former English teacher is copy editing it. As soon as I get it back, I’ll make changes and put it up. I plan on putting up a free short story at the same time. The main characters are lesbian ghosts, and it was originally published in the Fourth Women Sleuth Anthology.

If anyone would like to be informed when it’s out, please go to my website and sign up for my newsletter. http://edieramer.com.

What made you go the Self Publishing route?
I’ve been writing professionally since the 1990s and knew I had the chops. I was winning contests and getting requests. I’ve had four agents! I’ve come so close to selling, but it just didn’t happen. Zoe Winters was my friend before she self-published two years ago, and her success inspired me. Once I made the decision, I knew it was the right thing to do. I’m empowered now. I love that.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book or publishing experience?
I would do it sooner. Otherwise, I wouldn’t change anything. It’s a learning experience. Every day is a learning experience for me.

What do you do when you are not writing?
Walk the dogs. (We have two.) Pet the cat. Spend too much time on email and, lately, Facebook. Of course, I read. I have favorite TV shows, but I’m picky. I like to cook, I hate to clean. And I spend time with family and friends.

Do you have any advice for other writers?
Write, write, write. Read, read, read. Get a critique partner who’s as good a writer as you or better.

Tell the readers what to expect from Cattitude.
Cattitude will make you smile, give you a few chuckles, and maybe even a tear or two. Most of all, it will leave you feeling good when you finish, a warm glow that stays with you a while and comes back whenever you think of it.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
First, thank you so much for having me at Paromontasy! I appreciate so much that you had me as a guest and helped me get the word out about Cattitude.

I love readers! I’m one of them. I appreciate everyone who reads my book. I get the best feeling when a reader emails me to tell me how much she (or he) enjoyed Cattitude, or when someone puts a great review up about it. I used to think it didn’t matter. But now I know it matters tremendously. Cattitude is only $2.99, and I hope everyone who reads it loves it.

Edie Ramer is a wonderful writer and person! If you agree, then follow her! Thanks to social media there is no stalking neccessary :-)

NO REST FOR THE WICCA Book Review and Giveaway details

NO REST FOR THE WICCA




Title: NO REST FOR THE WICCA
Series: No Rest For the Wicca (Book 1 of this series)
Author: Toni LoTempio











Official Summary:
Communing with the dead is an everyday occurrence for PI Morgan Hawkes. A half-Wiccan witch who can commune with spirits of those caught between worlds, Morgan uses her talents to exorcise the trapped ghost or demon as part of the Paranormal Investigation Squad – until a string of murders with a voodoo slant prompts the Special Forces Agency to ask for her assistance. Someone’s killing pureblood witches- and the SFA’s convinced Morgan’s heritage (her father was a voodoo priest) could be instrumental in solving the mystery. Teamed with dashing SF agent Cole St. John – an Inheritor Vampire that sets her blood racing – the two of them fight their attraction for each other as they race to stop a madman from unleashing a demonic force upon the world.

My Review:
This book is a fast-paced, action packed, suspenseful book filled with romance and mystery! Morgan is a kick-ass heroine that is running from her past, while protecting her future and the one person she has left, her witch cousin . When a string of witch slayings involving voodoo lands at her door, it is up to her, a half-wiccan with a voodoo past,  to find the killer and protect her cousin. In protecting herself and her family she must come face-to-face with a past that has haunted her for years. Her past is the least of her problems when she is partnered up with agent Cole St.John. An equally hard headed bad-ass who is not only a gorgeous Inheritor Vampire, but an equally crazy past that rivals Morgan's. She has met her match in Cole - in more ways than one, but will romance put both their lives in jeopardy? Will she be able to find the killer before the killer finds her? And with mystery surrounding the entire investigation, who can she really trust?
This whirlwind of a book will keep you on your toes, racing through the pages, and completely breathless in the end. The world of Morgan Hawkes is filled with an array of creatures for the many supernatural lovers out there. From ghosts to witches; vampires to weres; and trolls to daemons..just to name a few. What makes this book even greater is that it is witty and blends humor and sexual tension into the mystery, murder and suspense that surrounds this story.

This book has it all! Read it and you will not be disappointed. I said this in my Q&A with Toni - Toni LoTempio is one of the greats and I can guarantee we will be hearing alot more from this great author!!

This book is rated 5 fangs!

Author Spotlight, Q&A, and Giveaway with author Toni LoTempio!

paranormal romance,urban fantasy,Paromantasy,No rest for the wicca


Paromantasy is shining the spotlight on paranormal romance author Toni LoTempio. Her new novel, NO REST FOR THE WICCA, is a non-stop action packed ride filled with murder, mystery, romance, intrigue and a bad ass heroine that you are going to love! Add in her snarky and insanely gorgeous vampire partner and you've got yourself an instant page-turner! Morgan Hawkes is a half Wiccan  paranormal investigator who banishes unwanted ghosts. She likes her job, she's good at it and it's less complicated then her former role as detective. But when a string of witch murders arises, Morgan is needed to join a Special forces unit. These murders involve voodoo, and Morgan's father was a practitioner of the dark arts. Forced to team up with super hot, but equally saucy vamp Agent Cole; the two set out on a mission that changes their future, and brings up a past that refuses to stay buried.

I have said this only once before, so this is really big for me. We have found another gem! Toni's writing takes you on a journey that completely makes you forget the reality around you, and engrosses you in her novel until the very end. She has now joined my list of favorite PNR authors, and is in the company of Richelle Mead, Patricia Briggs, JR Ward, and fellow indie author HP Mallory. We have another great author that I am certain will soon become a well known name in the PNR / UF literary world.

Toni LoTempio novel has far exceeded many of the traditionally published works that I have read. Run and pick up this book today! Better yet, enter our giveaway! Toni is giving away three copies of her book! See below for details on how you can win a copy of this five fang book!

Let's give a warm welcome to one of my newly favorite authors Toni LoTempio!

Tell us about yourself.
I was born in New York City, quite a few years ago :-) In 1995 I joined the staff of a pulp magazine, SUSABELLA PASSENGERS AND FRIENDS, as a feature reporter, winning their Margaret Sutton Award for Distinguished Reporting in 1998. I’ve written over 200 articles for this magazine in the space of 10 years. Susabella is devoted to series book literature, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, et al. And, as a big series collector, this was right up my alley. I started writing novels in 1996 and in November, 2004 A SPY IN THE HAND debuted to excellent reviews, followed by BOUND BY BLOOD, EBONY, NOM DE PLUME, WITCH’S PAWN, IT’S IN THE CARDS, OUT OF THE ASHES and this year my first indie, NO REST FOR THE WICCA. More to come!

I live in New Jersey with my four furry roommates: a tuxedo named Rocco, a gold tabby named Maxx, a gray and white lady named LJ and a gray 13 year told tabby named Trixie. They are my inspiration!

When did you know that you wanted to be a writer?
When I was about four years old – my mother used to read me bedtime stories and if I didn’t like the way they ended, I rewrote them!

How did the whole idea for No Rest For The Wicca come about?
I’ve always been fascinated by witchcraft – my favorite horror movie growing up was BLACK SUNDAY with the incredible Barbara Steele, and I’ve always loved vampires. I was obsessed with DARK SHADOWS as a teen. I even went to the studio and met Jonathan Frid! Voodoo has always fascinated me as well – so I just decided to put it all together. Plus, I was just coming off a rejection for one of my other novels from NAL – New American Library – so I took my frustration out in WICCA.


Which is cooler: A Half Voodoo/ Half Wicca background like Morgan or Half Inheritor Vampire/Half Wicca like Cole?
OOH, that’s a toughie. I think the Half Voodoo/Half Wicca. There are a lot of cool things about voodoo, once you get into it. The dark end of it is fascinating.

Are your characters based on people you know?
Some of ‘em – and they know who they are, too :-) My friends and co-workers never know when they’ll turn up in something I’ve written.

Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
I love Stephen King – his early books. And John Saul. I credit both of them with getting me into the horror genre. And no one can top James Patterson for suspense, in my book. I also love Alex Kava, and Tess Gerritson is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I’d kill – literally kill – to write like her. (hey, do I smell a future book there???)

What books are you reading now?
I just finished THE MEPHISTO CLUB by Tess Gerritson and have just started THE KEEPSAKE, also by Tess Gerritson. Again, I would kill to write like this woman. She is phenomenal!

Was writing and publishing your book exactly how you imagined?
Hmm…Is anything in life ever as you imagine it will be?

Are you working on any other projects we should watch out for?
I’m currently working on a paranormal romance I hope to shop to some agents. On the indie side, I have a few other paranormals and some YA’s I hope to put out in the coming year. ONYX 2097, about a rock singer who’s turned into a superheroine; RAVEN’S KISS, about a Shapeshifter, are two. I also have the outline written for the sequel to NO REST FOR THE WICCA, so I’m going to do that. Also I have another vampire series I’m working on that has to undergo another rewrite.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book or publishing experience?
As a writer, there are always things you want to change, to make better. But at some point you just have to let go, let it fly and hope for the best.

What was the hardest part of writing and/or publishing your book?
Uploading the damn thing! I’m not techno-computer savvy!

There was tons of information about Wicca and Voodoo in the book. Did you do much research for your book?
Absolutely. I did extensive research on voodoo and wicca. Barnes and Noble loved me! I used some of the notes I had from EBONY, another book that deals with voodoo.

What do you do when you are not writing?
As you can tell from my “to do list” there’s very little time when I’m NOT writing – but when I’m not, I like to read and watch DANCING WITH THE STARS. If I weren’t a writer, I’d have been a dancer. I studied ballet for 7 years.

Random Question: Would you rather be a Wicca, a Were, or a Vamp?
Wicca! Definitely! Everyone knows supernaturals are all susceptible to magic!

Tell the readers what to expect when reading one of your books.
They should expect the unexpected. I always try to have a twist you don’t see coming, except in the romances. That’s why I don’t’ write too many straight romances.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
A big thanks for reading WICCA, and I hope you’ll visit Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Whiskey Creek Press and Echelon and try another of my novels.:-) More indies to come, I promise!


You can catch up with me on my website,  and I also do a blog at Fallout Entertainment

Blood of Silver Book Review

Blood of Silver (Seeker Series)



Title: Blood of Silver
Series: Seeker Series (Book #2)
Author: B.V. Larson






Official Synopsis
Book #2 of the Seeker series starts a year after the first story ended. Haley and Seth are still together, but his visits have grown infrequent. Can she keep the relationship alive?


Haley’s story takes on new turns in the second novel of paranormal romance and suspense. Two new strangers enter her life from unexpected directions. Ariene seeks to teach her new magic. Andre, handsome and rich, seeks to capture her heart. He is there when she needs help, while Seth is out on a distant, unknowable mission. Is it wrong for her to go out with him? Can't they just be friends? What will happen when Seth comes back into her life, as she knows he will?
 
My Review
B.V. Larson has done it again with Blood of Silver! I loved this book even more than the first of the Seeker series. The introduction of two highly mysterious and complex characters, Andre and Ariene, has taken this series to a whole new level of awesomeness. It has everything the Blood of Gold had:  mystery, suspense, romance, but multiplies it by 10.
 
It is set 1 year after the last book, and Hayley's living her life with her bff Brooke by her side. Seth only stops by once in a while, and while he's away life must go on. At a bar, Hayley and Brooke meets a suave, handsome, rich older man Andre. After saving them from a drunk guy, they both start to feel an attraction to their savior. After a few meetings with her new hot friend, Hayley has to decide if Seth, the one who visits only a few times a year but owns her heart, is the man for her; or is Andre, who is loyal and there for her, a better choice. If her love life wasn't complicated enough, an old family friend is living in her house and cozying up to her dad. She would love to hate her, but the fact that she has powers like Hayley and is able to teach her how to own her abilities makes her useful. But can she trust her? On that note, can she trust Andre who is getting more possessive then ever? Is love enough or is the lack of being together going to tear Seth and Hayley apart? And the biggest question of all is: what happened to the drunk guy that came after Brooke and Hayley? He has suddenly disappeared and Hayley, Brooke and Andre were the last ones to see him alive, leaving them as the key suspects. This book is a YA book that even adults will enjoy. The twist,  turns, romance and mystery will have you racing through the pages.
 
This book is rated 41/2 fangs:

Blood of Gold Book Review

Blood of Gold (Seeker Series)




Title: Blood of Gold
Series: Seeker Series (Book #1)
Author: B.V. Larson






Official Summary:
Her young man stepped out of nowhere onto a mountaintop...


Her high school counselor came from Hell. Literally...

Haley learns she has a unique gift. She normally lives her life escaping notice, but now two gorgeous strangers are interested in her. Very interested. Seth is the best-looking young man she (or anyone else) has ever met. Every girl in school is after him and the competition turns strangely vicious. She soon realizes that he is not fully bound to this world. Although they both feel the mutual attraction, there’s something holding him back... The second stranger is equally attractive, but more frightening. When she is with him, she somehow loses her self-control. To say more would give away too much, but Las Vegas will never be the same...

My Review
This book is the first in BV's YA Seeker series. It revolves around Hayley, a teenage girl living an ordinary life, that is until the new guy in school walks into class. Seth is not like other boys, to say the least. Drawn to him, Hayley seeks him out and finds that there is much more to him than meets the eye. He is shrouded by mystery and what she uncovers changes her life forever. Suddenly her loyal friends turn into enemies, her school counselor has it in for her, her new boyfriend is much more than a mere boy, and  and the world around her is not the only thing changing. She soon realizes that she is not some ordinary teenager after all, and her biggest fear is no longer what she is going to wear to school, it's if she is going to survive the night.

This is not your typical series. Sure it's a normal pnr romance where a teenage girl falls for a supernatural guy, but what it has that other series are lacking is mystery, suspense and action. Larson did a great job portraying Hayley, a teenager with ordinary problems and insecurities. She is young and naive at times, and yet is strong willed and determined. It made this PNR believable. I felt like that Hayley's character could have been me in my teenage years - sigh. Seth is another great character. The ageless boy who is not your average romance hero. He is dedicated, and well-versed, but seems to forget what romancing a girl is all about. The many dimensions of Seth make you want to read on to find out what he's going to do (or not do) next. The other characters are equally interesting. Brooke is the bff that is secretly (or not so secretly) jealous of you, Trevor is the guy who likes you (but you have zero interest in), and the school counselor is an evil turd, but in this case you can't get away from him so easily.

This book is definitely worth a read. There are not many YA novels out there that is not all about fluff and actually give you some action and mystery that us adults can appreciate.

This book is rated 4 fangs:

Author Spotlight and Q&A with B.V Larson

Blood of Gold (Seeker Series)Blood of Silver (Seeker Series)The Vampire's Image



Paromantasy is shining the spotlight on the super talented author B.V. Larson.  I have just read the first two books of B.V's Seeker Series entitled: Blood of Gold and Blood of Silver. These are YA books centered around Hayley, a normal teenager living an ordinary life. That is until Seth walks in and changes her world. Suddenly her ordinary world turns extraordinary and her normal life becomes that of fantasy (the sci-fi kind). I absolutely loved this series. It is so original, fast-paced and shrouded in mystery, suspense, and romance! Come back tomorrow where I will begin my review of all of BV's books, beginning with Blood of Gold. After the Seeker series, I went on to read the short story Vampire Image. Talk about unbelievable. I don't want to give away too much since I am writing a review, but what B.V. was able to do in such a few pages is nothing short of amazing. Again, check back for details.

B.V. Larson was kind enough to drop by Paromantasy to discuss life, books and what it means to be a writer.

Let's give a warm welcome to B.V. Larson!

Tell us about yourself.
I’m a writer loves to write. I wasn’t sure, when I started, that I would really enjoy writing for months and years. It’s one thing to pop out a story once in a while, but quite another to finish one book and plow into another. As it turns out, I’m that kind of writer. I live the western US, always have. I have kids, I’m married... And after work I write every spare minute. Every day.

When did you know that you wanted to be a writer?
I figured out I wanted to become a writer at around age nineteen. It’s taken many years to learn enough to become successful, however. I’d caution young people not think their first story will take the world by storm. It might happen—but probably won’t. Like the first time a kid picks up a violin, our first writing efforts are usually painful to the ear, but with enough work, it can happen.

Where did you get the idea for Blood of Gold from, and how did you come up with the title?
I wanted to write a different type of paranormal romance, a more realistic one. Not all readers like this. I think they’ve become used to certain fanciful notions in the genre. I took it seriously, first of all, with little humor. That cuts out half the genre, at least. Then I made the lead girl a realistic teenager. She had worries, emotional fits, friends with problems, etc. The title has to do with the story, about supernatural people all being related in various ways. The color associated with each title relates to the supernatural character she (Haley) meets in each book.

Are your characters based on people you know?
Some of them are. But usually they are based on people I’ve seen in passing, not real friends. Some of the lines in the first book, in particular, come right from lines spoken in high school. My teen kids and nieces have teen friends. Our house has a pool and is the family “party house”. For example, I led a pack of seven thirteen year olds around the neighborhood on Halloween last week. They give me ideas.


Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
In this genre, I read Meyers (of course), Hamilton and others. I read a lot of Indie books, too.

What books are you reading now?
I just read Grave Witch by Alex Craft.

Was writing and publishing your book exactly how you imagined?
It never is. Especially the publishing part. I had a fairly big agent in NYC about two years ago who marketed “Blood of Gold” but if you recall what happened back then... Half of NYC went into a panic. The market fell apart, no one was interested in a new YA author. I ended up moving on to being an Indie after being disillusioned by traditional publishing. I’ve not regretted the choice.

Are you working on any other projects we should watch out for?
I just released The Vampire’s Image on Amazon and BN. I plan to write a third book in the seeker series, Blood of Flame, soon.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Reading over it five times to find errors. This is a required, but “un-fun” part of the biz, especially as an Indie. I also have two semi-pro people who do a read-through for me on each book.

What do you do when you in your free time?
Write books. Or read books. Or edit books—I use that as punishment to get myself writing and reading again.

Tell the readers what to expect when reading Blood of Gold.
It’s a good book. It might not be exactly like every other paranormal romance. The main character, Haley, is not a dream person. She’s very real, with faults and teen angst, and some people love that, but others want a more “fairytale” lead.

Random Question: If you could be any supernatural being, what would it be?
Oooo, that is a tough one. I would say a werewolf. I’ve got a thing about them. Friends have told me so, so it must be true!

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
When looking at my list of books, don’t assume they are all the same! I might write a sweet romance one book and a gory thriller the next. Read the description. One thing is for sure, you probably won’t be bored with anything of mine.


Last, thanks for all your eyeball-hours reading my books. I appreciate readers. If it wasn’t for you, fiction would not exist.


B.V. Larson is a talented and successful writer that is original, entertaing, and memorable. Each story was filled with mystery, suspense and romance, all the while keeping the story believable and the characters relatable.

Have you read a book by B.V. Larson? Are you running to add this book to your TBR list?
If you have read her book, love the interview or just want to know more, leave a comment! We would love to hear what you think! Be sure to check out my review of Blood of Gold tomorrow.
