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!

  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. :)

  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.)

  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. 

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, whils…

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…

The Love Howl of the Wolf Mother

"Don't say 'big, bad,'" my three-year-old daughter Nux Gallica tells me when I read her bedtime stories. "Just say 'the wolf.'" When groups of wolves appear on the page (usually in a sinister context), she makes up individual characteristics for them. "This is the mama wolf, this is the sister, and this is the auntie. And this one is thirsty for a drink of water."

I am proud of Nux's wisdom and grateful that she doesn't buy into stereotypes so easily. Because I, myself, am a Wolf Mother. We Wolf Mothers are deeply fulfilled by parenting and strongly engaged with our children, but our passionate immersion in motherhood has the tendency to isolate us from many people who filled our lives in the years BC (Before Child). So I want to send out a howl of love to all those I treasure from a distance while I lie low in the den of early-years motherhood. 

We Wolf Mothers are deeply instinctual. We are dependent on our mates and packs,…
