I’m working on some final edits for A Fading Amaranth, a paranormal romance about vampire Nathaniel and his mortal lover Alexandra. I thought you might be interested in some poetic behind-the-scenes before the book comes out!
When I was working to find the right title for my story, I kept hearing the word “amaranth.” Almost like a whisper, a chant. I knew it was some kind of flower, but when I looked up the meaning, I learned that it’s a word that was used in ancient poetry.The amaranth was a mythical flower referred to in Classical poetry; it was a metaphor for immortality and meant “unfading” or “undying.”

Welcome to the Howloween Blog Hop! I love how Halloween has become the somewhat unofficial holiday of the paranormal romance genre. In my last post for the Snarkology hop (you can still comment on that post for a chance to win a copy of Werewolves in the Kitchen!) I talked a bit about the holiday of Samhain vs. Halloween. Today I’m thinking more about how paranormal romance has become so popular. Which has me thinking, why do I read this stuff? Why do I write it?
Happy Halloween! I’m excited to be joining the Snarkology Halloween Hop with lots of fun prizes for all you grown-up trick-or-treaters.
Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a kid. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was born to be an event planner. Every year I’d plot how I would design the perfect party. I was obsessed with all things glow in the dark.
It wasn’t until years later that I started planning and executing actual events. I’ve done themed Star Wars parties at scifi conventions, masquerade balls, conferences, and all sorts of fun things. It’s my dream to do a Faerie costume masquerade ball in Chicago.
These days, I tend to celebrate Samhain more than the secular Halloween.
