“I knew I was a little different from most demons but nothing says freak of nature like a one-eyed gypsy saying I had a rainbow glow. It just didn't sound complimentary.”
Mary Abshire, Claiming the Evil Dead

“I want to pick up a few other items at the house,” Jules said as Katie stepped around the car. “I still have my roller skates and yours in my closet.”

Katie opened the door and paused, staring at Jules.

“What?” Jules asked.

“Are you serious? Our lives are in danger and you want to get our roller skates?”
Mary Abshire, Immortal Revenge

“Emotions are destructive, Ms. Dillinger. One of two things will happen to you. You will either be hurt and wish you were dead, or you will end up dead.”

Katie stopped in front of the next cooler and checked inside. “I’m human. What am I supposed to do? Just…be?”

“Welcome to the world.”
Mary Abshire, Immortal Revenge

Topics Mentioning This Author

“You forget, darling.
I am the local psychopath.”
Kelley Armstrong, Bitten

“Are you the welcoming committee? Or has Jeremy finally chained you up to the front gate where you belong?"
"I missed you too.”
KELLEY ARMSTRONG, Bitten

“I was very strict on that point. No devouring classmates." Jeremy rolled his eyes. "Other parents warn their kids not to talk to strangers. I had to warn mine not to eat them.”
Kelley Armstrong, Stolen

“Another werewolf thing. Like most animals, we spent a large part of our lives engaged in the three Fs of basic survival. Feeding, fighting and... reproduction.”
Kelley Armstrong, Stolen

“Next Clay gave the house rules for living with theSorrentinos , which sounded a lot like the Ten
Commandments. Thou shall not lie, steal anything, kill anyone, disrespect your hosts or covet
any of Nick's girlfriends. And if you break the rules, you'll get your ass kicked and handed to you
in pieces—a part I suspect God left out.”
Kelley Armstrong, Frostbitten

I'm glad you are enjoying the books. Love Jenks and Kisten. They were my favorites. Some of the books are sad, though. Glad you like them!


Ezinwanyi Mary,
Thank you for giving me The Hollows Book 1-5. I am about to start book 2, and I wanted to let you know that I am enjoying Rache, Jenks & family and Ivy. Trent, Denon & Nick, not so much!

Nick is a lying dirtbag, I just feel it. Trent is an unknown scumbag species and Denon is just hateful.

Thank you so much. (hope I get Kelly Armstrong too!)

M (aka DarkBeauty73) Being on here and book blogs I have a list too on authors that I need to check out or get. You can never have to many books can you? lol


M (aka DarkBeauty73) Here is a link for the show, easier for you to check it out then to me to explain it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_Ti...

The show was based on the books there are 5 all together. I have read the first two. They are a great read.

Mary wrote: "Hey, thanks for accepting the friend request. Blood Ties by Tanya Huff--never heard of it/her. What's the book like?"


M (aka DarkBeauty73) Love to meet another Vampire junkie. I see we have alot of books in common, Anne Rice, Sookie Stackhouse and the Twilight series. The last two I don't have all the books read. I also read and watch the Vampire Diaries. Have you ever seen or read Blood Ties by Tanya Huff?

Cheryl Landmark Thanks for accepting my friendship, Mary.


message 78: by Nicole

Nicole Thanks for the friend-vite! LOVE your icon! I've been a DM fan for YEARS!!!


Future Slayer Girl I'm overflowing too! I'm actually fully set up on Shelfari.com but it went down and made this as a back up. It was really a great book, I love Cheyenne McCray so I'm sort of bias. Right now I'm reading the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett, I'm only two chapters in and I love it. Normally I get bored with just basic fiction. But this is a really really good book


Future Slayer Girl I actually LOVED Forbidden Magic. I finished it last night and need to write my review on it! But I really really liked the whole magic theme of the book. =)

So whats going on?"


oh gee...I sent of my UF novel and now editing book 4 in my soul catcher series. Then I'll ship it off and see what happens. I'm itching to write a new book, but will see what happens with my UF, because it needs a sequel.
As for reading, I'm reading two books right now and not getting far with either. Guess you can figure out why. hee hee.
What about you? What are you reading? Like it?

message 61: by Mary

Mary Abshire Reading is a great way to get into writing. I have no writing degree of any kind. In fact, my degree is in business information systems. In my opinion, writing takes patience and persistence. Love too! ;o)
If you are serious, then you should try and see if you enjoy it! The more you write and read, the better you become. You can learn the craft!!!


message 60: by Stef

Stef Thanks for the friend request Mary. Great to see that you're an author. I've only recently become addicted to reading. Guess i had to grow into it lol. Reading so much has made me start to think about writing myself, but I'm really rusty on proper grammar.


message 59: by Mary

LOL Roberta. You warm my heart.
I just finished it today. Which means... I let it sit for a week or so and go back and edit. Then I submit it and see what the editor says. Short answer, it will be a while before it's published.
But, I think it's a good one with lots of action, drama, and a very happy ending. It took me long enough to write :(
I'll keep you posted (wink, wink)
