A fellow bundle author! Check it out!

creative barbwire (or the many lives of a creator)

And it’s a guest! From the Vampires of the World bundle! Where we get to the origins of the legend, Transylvania itself! Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Kari Kilgore!

Where do you live and write from?

I live in my native Appalachian Mountains in Virginia, though I grew up and have lived all over the place. Our house is at the end of a long dirt road on 250 forested acres, with dogs, cats, and wildlife my husband Jason Adams and I are better off not knowing too much about.

Why do you write?

The truest answer is so I can find out what happens. Once a what if… takes root in my mind, some part of me can’t rest until I know how it turns out. It really is a turbocharged form of reading.

It’s Been Eight Years…

Eight years ago I published Shades of Gray. One reviewer noted that, though the book was listed as Book 1 in a series, there was no evidence of any more books coming. How things have changed since then! With nine novels, a prequel, and forty-eight short stories to date, the Amaranthine universe is rolling along nicely.

To celebrate eight years, the newest Tales of the Executioners takes place during Shades of Gray!

Live Writes at the Bistro

Image may contain: night and text

Tonight the Live Write fun starts at the Bistro – and Jonathan Harvey and I will be on at 9pm Central/10pm Eastern for our hour!

What is a live write? It’s where two authors take turns writing a very short story LIVE. The twist? We’re given an image to base our story off of AND a mystery genre. That’s right – we may not be writing humor OR vampires. We might get romance, post apocalyptic, sci-fi, or even noir!

So join us on Facebook and see what weirdness we come up with!

Look forward to seeing you there!

The Vampire Challenge has officially begun!

Just what is the vampire challenge? Join the group and find out! (Joining the group does NOT mean that you are participating).

Oh, all right. I suppose I’ll tell you a little bit.

The vampire challenge begins today, and goes until October 31st. Participants will receive tasks to complete, and those who do everything will get a “special surprise” at the end.

But what vampire is running it, and why? What do I mean by daily tasks? All those answers and more are in the group! So come join us! (And no, you don’t even need to be a reader of the Amaranthine books to play along!)

Hope to see you there!
