I like your site! I left a comment on the True Blood piece, one of my guilty pleasures. :)


Wicked ♥  (Wickedly Bookish Reviews) aka Bat-Jess | 5 comments Thanks Lisa! Mine too! My husband would never admit it, but he is totally addicted as well. He gets all cranky if I watch without him. :-)

As for my blog, any constructive criticism or feedback is more than welcome.

Dani Smith (daniquickdraw) | 30 comments Hey guys! Thanks for the invite!

I'm a traditionally published (not self-pubbed/indie) author of Dark Fantasy, Horror, and Paranormal Erotica reads. Definitely outside-the-mainstream stuff that appeals to folks who are sick of tired, recycled douchebag vampire and "alpha" werewolf plots. (Sorry, guys, not into True Blood myself, but power to ya. LOL!)

Anyhoo, I don't read/write YA, and my work appeals to a definitely grown up crowd. Lots of violence, gore, foul language, and sizzling between-the-sheets action. I have three books out with two separate publishers: Psyche's Gate, the first in a 5 book dark fantasy series, Black Dog And Rebel Rose, my #1 most popular book currently on sale for 99 cents, and In The Neon, my first illustrated adult fairy tale.
I have a novella coming out this summer, COYOTE NIGHT, an erotic paranormal/horror tale that will also be illustrated (you can read an adults ONLY snippet of that on my profile under Danielle D. Smith).

Great to be here...I am thrilled to be able to help out fellow authors and bloggers, and hopefully have some fun discussions. :-)

Cheers!
Dani

PS

I'm off to invite some other bloggers/authors to join. :-)

Maureen Mullis | 4 comments I'm excited to be a part of this group too! I have two books out right now. What Would Nancy Do? is a cozy mystery about two fifty-somethings who have been friends since childhood and try to solve a mystery together. I'm working on the next book in the series and hope to have it out by the end of the year. In the Company of Women is a women's fiction story of a group of women who help each other through a difficult year in their lives. Look forward to getting to know you all!

message 13: by Shira (new)

Shira Anthony (shiraanthony) | 6 comments I'm a relative newbie author - attorney by day (Aaron, I feel your pain!) and writer the rest of the time. Started out writing fanfic a few years ago, graduated to original self-pub, and have my first novella to be published this fall. Just finished my first full-length novel and am working on editing it for submission. Mostly M/M romance with music/law themes.

Happy to be here!

Regan Black | 19 comments Hey everyone! Thanks, Danielle for the invite to join the fun here! (Hi to Aaron as well - good luck on the bar exam)

I write action packed paranormal romance and urban fantasy novels, plus a series of fantasy short stories geared to the YA crowd. I've been traditionally pub'd and I'm on the indie track now. My latest release is Tracking Shadows


message 15: by Angela (new)

Angela (dilaby) | 3 comments Hey guys, Thanks Dani for the invite.

I am very new to the writing scene, not yet published as I am trying (underline the word trying LOL) to finish my first novel. It's a YA fantasy and am still trying to find my way around how to get published, what is best to do before sending to publishers.

Dani has been a great friend and helped me heaps on these problems, ;) her and my UK author friend Felicity Heaton have both given me a heap of advice and pushed me along. Still freaks me out all the stuff I have ahead of me. But I know Dani would personally hunt me down if I gave up. ;)

I work nights filling shelves in a supermarket, spend the days catching up with friends and writing my book. And of course weekends are taken up with Hubbie and kids. Phew. LOL. And when I'm not doing all that I am reading. YA, erotic, fantasy, paranormal. Love them all.

Hahaha! I don't mind being stalked too much so no worries. Thanks so much for taking a look and following!

Thanks EJ! I'm glad you like the blog!

If anyone is interested, I am going to have some contest info for Richelle Mead's comic book adaptation of her Dark Swan series on my blog. I'll be working closely with Sea Lion Books to bring the latest news on their comics and books through my blog.

Thanks so much for the invite!

I write historical fiction and modern romance.

Dani, don't be frightened, just be prepared! LOL


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Hello all!

First, thank you Dani for inviting me. I have a vampire romance trilogy that was released by Black Lyon Publishing, and am currently working on a women's fiction novel. I'm also sketching out another paranormal series I hope to have to my editor before the end of the year. You can check out my available novels, as well as an excerpt from what I am currently working on, along with my blog at http://lisa-phillips.com/

Looking forward to learning more about all of you and your work!

LOL I'm a new writer...only within the last couple of years, and I've learned so much from my writer friends from here and from Writers Digest...but, just getting down and doing it has created a whole new world for me. My fantasy novel came from an experience I had from this little house that my hubby and I bought. We had a ghost in the house, so when I wrote my fantasy book, I based the character on the ghost...of course, I had to make the ghost "real" so, that's how it became a Fantasy...I put a lot of real life into my books...even the weird books...LOL

Angela (dilaby) | 3 comments I have included a few things from my past into mine, but nothing too obvious. Just basic stuff, but sometimes it the basic stuff in the story that glues it together.

Brigid ✩ Hello everyone! I'm Brigid. I'm an 18-year-old aspiring author. I also read, listen to music, draw, tap dance, blog, and drink lots of coffee. I'm going to Hampshire College this fall. Um, I guess that's about it. :)


message 34: by Livie (new)

Livie (livie_marie) | 14 comments Hello all,

My name is Olivia. I'm going to be 28 years old in September and have developed, since last December, an intense love for the Keurig single serve coffee maker in the kitchen. My current projects consist of http://www.thegeekychic.net where one may find geek and pop culture tid bits concerning film, books, fandom, fashion, love, and more! All for geeks, geeks for all should be its motto. I am developing it to a creative services offering as well for the likes of freelance work, special occasion writing, and more. As a writer I have an interest in the literary style,paranormal,alternate histories, fantasy, steam punk, and the erotic.

I've dreamed of being a writer since I was about 8 years old. I was published as a teenager with school publications and a few poetry venues, but am finally doing more than dreaming. Living the dream! Complete with the blog, and about to submit stories, and a text based rp development! Somewhere in there will be rejection letters. Knowing me I will probably keep them as souvenirs.

I look forward to getting to know amazing writers from all over! Oh yes, and Danielle brought me here. By force mind you. She bound me up! And had cookies for coming to the dark side!

Olivia
