Let's Pull Out A Faery Card

Hey all,

It's time for another guest blogger. Today I have the honor of introducing Brigit Aine who lives in California with her wonderful family, and like me, she writes paranormal stories. You can find her on both twitter and facebook under Brigitsworld, so go make contact! She's working on a lot of stories right now, so I'm pleased she's taking the time to say hi to all my blog followers. So everyone, give a nice welcome to Brigit, who has some faery dust to toss in our eyes!!!


Thanks CJ for letting me come and visit and talk with your readers. I thought I might tell a story today so I pulled a Faery card.

Out of my original Froud Faery Oracle came Lys of the Shadows. Lys and I are old friends. We travel into the dark of the shadows on many occasions and she guides me through the things I need to find that may not be so easy to see.

She reminds me of a character in a new series I have started reading. The October Daye Series, “Rosemary and Rue” and “A Local Habitation” by Seanan MacGuire? She has a wonderful character, Tybalt, the King of the Cats, who cloaks himself in shadow to stay hidden, very cat like in nature. He is a Fae… but back to Lys, for I digress.

She has told me that today is not for shadows, but to be out in the sun, not a Fae’s favorite place according to Seanan. I agree, but I understand what Lys is trying to say. My story is not one of darkness today, the tale I wanted to tell not the one that was coming forward.

So instead let’s talk of Urban Fantasy and the wonderful new worlds that are being created. I have discovered that I have a taste for this “new” genre. It is a mix of the things that I have always read, the paranormal, the mystery and the romance. While it leaves the erotic at home, I do not have a problem with that.

Signs of the Zodiac by Vicki Pettersson is another favorite Urban Fantasy, probably the one that got me started. No, that would have to be Kim Harrison’s series. I don’t know, maybe the Sookie Stackhouse series. Hmmm…I’m starting to see a trend are you?

I am an avid reader, I love to read almost as much or possibly more than I love to write. I will read until the voices in my head tell me I have to write now. I love almost anything. While I am not a big historical fan, sorry, I do like to have accurate details in what I read. And vampires, or faeries, or shapeshifters, or all of the above.

Yep, Mercy Thompson is a favorite for it has a little of everything in it. Asking me to pick a favorite would be impossible. There is something in every one of those that makes it unique and different than the others and they have all help my attention totally when I read them. And there are so many more. Too many to list. But please tell me your favorites…maybe we will already share an interest and maybe I’ll find a new author.

Hi Brigit,
I'm an avid reader also but unfortunately the voices in my head aren't story writers! I'd say they are more like trouble~making imps! LOL
Your question is who's my favorite writer ... hm-m-m ... let me think ... this is hard ...
Oh Yes! My favorite writer is CJ England!
;-) Ever heard of her? She's tough to keep up with, sort of "where in the world [or out of it] is CJ England?"
Best wishes for your continued success. The Voices Know!
Sara J. ~ : - ], who obviously needs more sleep.
[Pssst... I had to say CJ or she'll hurt me! Sh-h-h! LMAO]
