So, the reason I'm here today - The Darkest War, the second book in Tenna's story, will be released....September 10, 2014!!! Rebel Ink Press will be releasing this one as well.
WOOOOHOOOOOO! I haven't received the cover yet, but I promise to do a reveal when it's in my grubby little hands!
In other news, I'm currently working on a paranormal romance, which may or may not turn into a short series, as well as a Supernatural Thriller. I haven't decided if that will be a stand alone or not. I don't tend to start writing with a series in mind. Sometimes there's just too much story to tell in just one book.
So, anyway, not a whole lot of super cool news on this front. I'll post any news I have on The Darkest War when I know anything.
See y'all on the flip side!

Here's my take on them:
Vampires do not sparkle in the sun; they will fry, burn, become toast, a pile of ashes. The older vamps can survive short periods of sun, but the only sparkling you will see is from the flames shooting from their burning bodies.
They might be brooding, but that only depends on their personalities before they were turned. If they were wangsty before, they will be wangsty after.
They can be born, but most of the population was turned by a true born, or a stronger and talented member of the race.
Vampires have an insatiable sexual appetite. Their libido is strong; they need sex almost as much as blood and food to survive. They're rarely truly satisfied, therefore they end up with multiple partners, and some are bisexual.
They each have talents, some strong and cool, others useless. It is not uncommon for a vampire to be telepathic, empathic, as well as able to manipulate the human mind into seeing or feeling a certain way, and doing what the vampire wants.
~I just searched the web for pictures of vampires doing cool things but other weird crap popped up, like screen shots of video games and such. *sigh* If you're a vamp fiend like me you're fully aware of them flying, mind reading, enchanting humans, etc.~
Have I missed something you were wondering about? How about your favorite type of vampire? Do you like them tortured and romantic or scary and deadly? Do they sparkle in your fantasies or burst into flames in the sun?

So I bet you're wondering why I said creepy dolls, skulls, and eevie jeevies. Well, here's what's been added over the past few months....
On the left is a doll my mom gave me to watch over me while I write. She's over fifty years old and has never looked any better than this. At least I put some clothes on her. On the right is a disembodied doll head I found at a flea market and an animal skull my son found for me. He found it in a creek called Skullbone Creek, oddly enough.
As things made their way over to my writing cave I became more creative, and more uneasy. There's been more than one occasion when I've been home alone, yet I've felt someone standing behind me. Even the dogs would circle around to stand behind me and stare off into space. Quite creepy, hence the feeling of eevie jeevies!
Here's the full picture of where I write...
Do you have a writing cave or specific area just for penning your bestsellers? I would love to see a pic!

Like any normal modern woman I posted many of these questions on Facebook. (Don't judge!) I received such a slew of various answers. One person hates the use of the F bomb, while another said she expects it in most of her paranormal books. When I asked about using all caps to symbolize a man bellowing a statement I was met with yet even more varying answers. One said it was lazy writing, while another said there are no such things as rules and "Strunk was an idiot."
This got me thinking - at this point in time, especially when it comes to things like urban fantasy and paranormal romance where we make up our own worlds and make up rules to go with them, are there rules to the writing anymore? I'm not asking if we still have to use proper punctuation or sentence structure, more is there such a thing as writing etiquette, and what should and shouldn't be used when story telling.
I've scoured sites and blogs looking for the answer, but I find myself reaching the same conclusion as when I searched for the meaning of life.

I tried to paste a pic of the cover here, but apparently Blogger had other ideas.

Now, as I'm working on the second book, I've become almost obsessed with the idea of demon possessions, and evil walking among us. I have to admit there are times when it feels like someone is in the room with me, and not just the characters who are busily chatting it up in my head. Sometimes, when the house is really quiet, and I'm really into a scene, it seriously feels like there's someone standing behind me. I whip around, ready to yell at whatever kid snuck in and was now reading over my shoulder to find an empty room.
Have I possibly brought the demons from She Who Hunts into my own life? Or has the story just become so alive to me that I keep waiting for those things which go bump in the night to tap me on the shoulder? How about you? Ever get so creeped out by something you wrote or read that you checked under your bed before climbing in?

noun ; 1. an evil spirit or devil, esp. one thought to possess a person or act as a tormenter of Hell.
2. a cruel, evil, or destructive person or thing.
That is the official definition of a demon. Now, what would you do if someone you loved was possessed by a demon? I'm sure most of you said perform an exorcism. What if I told you there was no such thing? What if I told you the only way to release someone's soul from a demon was to kill them? Could you do it? Could you kill the person you loved most to release them from a demon's grasp?
"Tenna Massey's past is about to catch up with her. For eighteen years she’s carefully crafted a normal life. When an assassination attempt shatters that illusion, she’s forced to accept her true identity. As the prophesied demon huntress, she may be the only one powerful enough to stop a recent string of murders.
Tenna has two choices--kill or be killed. She must conjure the courage to kill someone she’s loved for so long to save thousands of innocent humans.
Will Tenna choose to embrace her fate as The Huntress or condemn humanity to an eternity of Hell on Earth?"

Writing Tip Courtesy of Rhonda Grace:
Sit in a cafe or bar and observe people. Turn off your phone or other distractions. As you look at the faces around you, imagine what they might be feeling or thinking. What might their lives be like? What have they experienced in the past? Let your imagination run free.
Think about that - every single person who crosses your path has a story, a history, a secret. As an paranormal author, my mind always wanders to the extreme, so for me anyone of these faces could belong to a hungry Shifter, or maybe a demon possessed human. The possibilities are endless!
Have a great weekend, y'all!

Or follow Ms. Love on Facebook,
Want to know a little more? Here's a blurb to Broken:
Broken by Sandra Love
Rose has a horrible life. She gets bullied by students at school, beaten by her
father, practically abandoned by her mother, and wants to end her life and
suffering. But when some strange things start to happen, she questions whether
or not she has a purpose in this life.
Then she meets a brother and sister that means more to her than she realizes. They are her protectors, and her kindred spirits. Just like her, they are bruised and broken, though for different reasons.
When she finally discovers the truth of her existence, her mind is jumbled with everything She has to take in; not to mention the battle she has to fight inside and out.
Speaking of writing my first book is YA Supernatural. It is book 1 of 3, with a Prequel. I really enjoy writing, it allows me to escape reality for a while. I hope you all enjoy my first book.
I am really a boring person; I rather stay in and hang out with my cats and my family then to go out.

Now that I've said that here's where a problem comes in, at least a problem for me. I've always been told we creative types tend to be more emotional and more susceptible to others' energies and moods. I can be plugging along on a storyline and a song comes on and totally changes my mode of thinking. Here's an example:
If I'm in the middle of, say, a fight scene and this song comes on my brain suddenly switches into romance mode. Oh, and not just romance mode, but heart broken, want to cry mode. I can picture my character in emotional pain, suffering the loss of an unrequited love, or maybe a terrible break up with the love of their life!
Even as I've been writing this blog I've had to repeatedly change the music selection. I just can't focus on anything real when I've got Rumpshaker, Boys II Men 'I'll Make Love to You', or Doris Day's Que Sera, Sera playing in my ear.
Perhaps it's time to find a specific play list for each book, but I honestly don't think it'll help. As the song changes, so will my mood.
