Upon discovering the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker and Michael Slade while in his teens, James Garcia Jr. soon began creating his own dark worlds. Not prepared to write and be a mature husband and father, that passion was boxed away for nearly twenty years. Then, not wanting to allow regret to fester, he finally removed that box from the attic of his heart and opened it. He now has four novels: the stand-alone paranormal romance "Seeing Ghosts" and the three volume (so far) "Dance on Fire" crossover vampire series.

Hello, Fire Enthusiasts. Seasons Greetings to you as we enter the stretch run of 2015. Once you get to Halloween the next thing we know it's New Year's Day. Am I right? Hopefully it won't really be like that. Here in the California central valley the heat has finally left us, although it hasn't really gotten that cool yet. Yes, I wrote "cool." We don't really get winter here. Whatever. I'm just... Read more of this blog post »

“I think horror can and should be classy. I enjoy seeing it raised up not lowered down to the lowest common denominator.
There's prejudice against the horror genre and I think sometimes that's the fault of the authors involved.”

James Jr. *smiles*Once I heard how much you missed "home", I just felt a connection to stop what i was doing and say hello. I hope you make it back soon, my new friend. I was born in Hanford, but live up the road in Kingsburg. In any event we're just in the shadow of Fresno - where you can find one or more of us nearly every week.
Happy Easter to you and yours! *waves*

-Jimmy

Star Indeed, we Cali folk do have to stick together, thanks.

I come from the Lake Tahoe area. I had to look up where your Hanford is.

Am hoping to move us all back home this year--some time in the fall. But I have hoped that for the past few years so we will see...I would jump on the next plane (or passenger ship, or freighter, or jet ski, or raft--you get the idea) if I could but it is not practical to do so as yet. I feel a deep connection to 'The Lake,' the Truckee River, the pine and aspen trees, meadows and mountains. And I miss the snow too (even though it can be a pain in the arse to have to shovel out your driveway ;))!

But I have promised to kiss the soil at my feet whenever I do make it back home. ;)

I forgot to wish you a "Happy Easter" as well! So...Happy Easter! Nice to meet you too and will be 'seeing' you around here.

James Jr. Hi, Star. I just happened to see your post on a Good reads group or something and saw that you were from Cali and missed home. Something in all of that made me stop and say hello. We Calif. people have to stick together! :) Anyway, it's good to meet you, and I look forward to hearing about your work.
Have a great Easter weekend!

-Jimmy

Star Hello, James and--wait--my music stopped playing...;)

Eh hem, thank you for the friend request.

I see you have just penned a 'paranormal romance' which is what my novella (in-progress) is--in part. Congratulations on completing this work of yours and all the rest of those works completed as well.I will have to give them a read!

I also like that you used the word 'channel' when it comes to your writing. Indeed, I 'channel' much of my own work as well--if not all of it.

Oh and what a cool cover for your book, "Dance On Fire". He reminds me a little of a certain character of mine from my (again in progress) fantasy novel.

I hope that the day finds you well.

Hello, Victoria. It is very nice to meet you. Mostly I am here for PR. You know a little bit about that, right? LOL! I do love to read, but don't get the time to do as much as I used to. I've been to your blog. You have another follower now!! Take care.
