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. :)

  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!

A Bad Romance Starring Till Lindemann, Sophia Thomalla, Gavin Rossdale, Simone Thomalla, Sven Martinek, Andy LaPlegua, and Leila Lowfire

To misquote Gaga, "I don't speak German, but I can look at foreign tabloids and guess what's going on if you like."

I guess it would be more professional and ladylike for me to be above this sordid celebrity gossip, but I'm not. I'm so not.

So let's see if I've got this straight. From what I gather...

Metalgod Till Lindemann, 54, and model Sophia Thomalla, 27 (upper left) recently exited a five-year, on-off, opennish relationship, which began when Sophia's actress mother Simone (upper right, in the center) and Simone's then-lover (between her marriages to nubile young athletes) actor Sven Martinek (lower left, in the center), who is famous for his lead role in German TV show Der Clown (lower right) thought it would be cute to set Sophia up with their pal Till. Apparently, the 22-year-old Sophia was not repulsed at her parental figures setting her up with a drinking buddy significantly older than her mom, which absolutely makes sense when the d…

Dystopian Dreams for a Suburban Family

The new doomsday prepping is dystopia survival. So-called "doomsday prep" only works if you have a bug-out plan to somewhere that isn't doomed or if the Walmart reopens after a few weeks. To me, "doomsday" doesn't imply a temporary disaster like a hurricane or an avalanche. It means that the status quo is irrevocably lost. Surviving most big and permanent changes requires building social connections and learning new things, not hiding out in a bunker.

Long-term survival requires a permanent adaptation to a new normal. Because no matter how many SpaghettiOs you hoard, stockpiling alone won't give you enough time to adapt if you haven't started long before the first disaster.

Examples: Here is what it's like to survive a natural disaster, if you are one of the richest and "prep"-piest people on Earth. Below is what it's like to survive a two-week winter power outage in record-shattering low temperatures, if you are a basic suburbani…

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 2018. 

October 2017 is the release date of a NatGeo photo book of Till's travels in the Yukon with Joey Kelly: Mein Gehasster Freund Yukon

Yukon Ho!

For fresh squeezed gossip juice, here's a bad (as in so good) romance. 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, …
