20 Questions with Author Rebekah R. Ganiere


I have a "thing" for fairytales! Look no farther than last week’s blog post accompanying the Fairy Tale Magic Hop for my reasons why. And I love discovering new authors who write what I enjoy. Ta Da! Meet Rebekah! I already knew of her enthusiasm for the paranormal genre through RWA’s FF&P loop, but the minute "One Click" brought the magic of her world to my iPad Kindle app, I realized something else: The woman knows her way around a fairytale! I’m devouring Red the Were Hunter and loving the way she can twist a familiar tale (and tail!). The second book in her Fairelle series, Snow the Vampire Slayer is waiting, crouching and ready to spring the minute it’s released, which is probably just as this post is getting uploaded. Pardon me while I sneak out . . . for a bite!

A nibble. A tease. My favorite thing about eating out or a dinner party has always been the appetizers. Those quick, delicious samples that excite the taste buds and make the wait for the main course bearable. Too few make you cranky. Too many overstuff and leave no room for the meal. Just the right balance gives you something to whet anticipation while building the desire for more. Rather like the countdown to a book release.

IWSG: Pay It Forward


You don’t survive in a shark-infested industry like publishing without grabbing onto to life preservers. They’re the people who keep you afloat and your head above those choppy waters. They’ll toss you a ring, jump in with you, extend a hand to pull you out of the current just when you’re ready to go down for the last time.
