Fantasy Blog Hop

Are you a fantasy writer or reader? Check out this blog hop hosted by Tessa Conte of Tessa's Blurb!

There will be an opportunity to sign up and join the meeting and greeting when the weekly topic matches your area of expertise or interest.

Here is a mocked up "cover" of my fantasy WIP, Briars and Black Hellebore, courtesy of Microsoft Office fonts and clip art. Hehe.

So what genre is your WIP? Are you a fellow fantasy writer? If you happen to be working on a fairy tale- or folklore-based narrative or anything set in medieval times before the Crusades, please introduce yourself so I'll be sure not to miss your blog!


  1. I'm a fantasy YA writer and I love it!!! I have four novels in the works and I'm working on revising my personal favofite (because it's fully written) and in the revisions stage!!!

    Happy Tuesday! Thanks for joining the blog fest! I'm happy to have you!

  2. Thanks for joining and posting! I'm glad people are liking the idea...and REALLY REALLY curious to see how many fantasy writers we can get together by next tuesday!

    Love the new title for your WIP, btw, and great cover, too!


  3. Hello! I'm hopping by on Tessa's blog-hop. I write primarily Urban Fantasy, with themes ranging from angels/demons, vamps/weres, to fairies and modernized myths. Really, I've got ideas for everything and sometimes I lament that I will never get to them all...

    Anyways, happy writing and blog hopping! Looking forward to being a follower. :)

    Scribbler to Scribe

  4. *waves* HI!! I started writing Fantasy novels about a year ago and have written 2 Ghost and 3 Vampire (4th in works).

    Happy bloghopping!

  5. What a fantastic way to meet new writers!!! I'll have to check the ones out that I don't know. And your cover is awesome! Is that the title you're going with for sure, then?

  6. I'm a long-time follower of yours, Genie. And my genre is science fantasy. I'm currently writing a ghostly murder mystery serial on my blog where I am trapped in my own fictional world, wanted for the murder of the ghost of Ernest Hemingway. And my companions are the ghosts of Marlene Dietrich and Mark Twain (what a pair, right?) Roland

  7. Hi everybody!! I am loving some of the new blogs I've found already. Still working on getting through the list when no one's looking at work. ;)

    Michelle: That's just a new, shorter and more fun working title. It may change later, especially if I finish and enter the publication process. (Fingers crossed, when they aren't typing.)

  8. Good luck with your book! Looking good! Loved your short story "Dear Hideo" by the way!

  9. I don't write genres, but my stories have quite a bit of what would be considered paranormal, "fantastic" writing. To me it's real life. I'm a witch. You write what you know or at least start with that.

  10. Fascinating cover. Very impressive.

    I don't really consider myself a fantasy writer, though my current WIP includes a fully fictional world and magic, so many it's a little fantastical.

  11. Hi - just hopping through!

    I write paranormal fantasy, both YA and adult. But I also love fantasy with magic and plotting and evil sorcerers...

    Nice job w/ both the bad boy and bad girl blogfest entries!

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Till

UPDATE: After purging his sillies on the side project LINDEMANN and participating in another Rammstein documentary video, Till has begun work on a seventh Rammstein album, estimated to be released in 2017. Till Lindemann
Till Lindemann is the only living human who could kick Chuck Norris's ass, but he doesn't, because they go on emo hunting trips together. The source of this fact, Urban Dictionary, also provides the following essential details: "Till Lindemann is the anthropomorphic personification of pure masculinity who invented the often-lethal dance move: The Till Hammer..." "He challenges the definition of masculine..." "Every German fertility clinic features a cardboard cutout of Till Lindemann choking a shark with one hand, whilst cradling a kitten in his other, looking directly at the stirrups in the insemination room. To this day they have a 100% success rate."

To the chagrin of most of the band, including Till himself, Rammstein is, …

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Richard

Richard Z. Kruspe
Richard Zven Kruspe is Rammstein's founding father, lead guitarist, and natural frontman. He's gregarious, well-spoken in both German and English, a professional showman, and an enthusiastic promoter for the band. In German, his name is pronounced "REE-kard," and in Germanglish, "Reeshard," or "Reesh" for short. Richard is sexy, and he knows it. To many Rammstein fans, he is the cuuuuuuute one. His Facebook page would have you believe it.

Legend has it that Richard has a lovechild with lead singer Till Lindeman. The myth is based in complicated facts and figures, including one unconventional love triangle. Circa 1990, Richard and Till were in a band together (along with future Rammstein rhythm guitarist Paul Landers) with the cheeky name First Arsch. Till, the drummer, was a single father of a little girl at the time, the issue of a short-lived, youthful shotgun wedding--to Richard's current girlfriend. When "Mrs. Lindem…

Safe Products for the Uncrunchy Mama

When I got pregnant, I became ultra-paranoid about toxins. (Haven't you heard? Pregnancy is the best time ever to become a paranoid schizophrenic!) At first I was drawn to everything "crunchy," from home organic gardening to no-poo hair care. I actually loved gardening and no-'poo, but they are not as simple or easy as you might be led to believe. Then I realized that all that crunches is not wholesome (there is just as much consumer-swindling, hazardous and unscientific BS in the "crunchy" sphere as in mainstream marketing toward women) and besides, I was too tired to make all my own soaps and cosmetics. And I didn't want to smell like patchouli and vinegar every day, much as I do love those two things. And I like my hair and skin and nails smooth, totally unlike my nut butter.

Fortunately, I found three great brands that offered everything I wanted: convenience, quality, reasonable price, and safety for me and my unborn child. Their products are luxu…
