For those who are damned…

Devil Paranormal Romance.jpg

Damn his love. No, I am not referring to any definition found in books written by well-educated men with capital letters following their names.

The kind of love I’m referring to is insane by its nature and is a true contradiction in words. To be honest, it isn’t really love but the reverse of love. You hate yourself and hate this feeling so much that it returns full circle as an animalistic deep yearning that can only be soothed by its master.

This love, or whatever you want to call it, if you were unlucky enough to possess it, is the kind of love that brands your soul with a red-hot iron as a testimony of its existence. And then it’s ripped from your grasp.

I know there are non-believers questioning its presence, consider yourself blessed for your ignorance.

Now for those who are damned due to this Insane Love and are still trying to mingle in with the world as normal and are hoping to once again to find the devil who seduced you, this message is totally for you.

Love, hate, and extremes in fiction

1. Hate

First thing I know for sure is, its innate within human nature to kill and hate. I’ve watched the news and I’ve read different pieces of literature referencing the criminal mind. I’ve done this all in the name of research for my writing and I have to admit also out of curiosity. But more than my observations and my education, I know myself. Not that I have killed, but I have felt the strong passions of rage, where words no longer expressed my vile hatred for a situation. Where my gut has told me that even if I were to find the words, they would not justify my frustration.

Client Spotlight: Author of Kick-Ass Heroines @ShondaBrock

Not the usual canned questions! Check out my author interview with Christa Wojo.

My Sweet Delirium

Shonda Brock Interview.jpgShonda Brock and I have been working together for a long time and how it has flown by! We’ve had so much fun over the years. We knew we were destined to make a good creative team because we both were born on January 22nd. We also both appreciate wine, books, and yoga.

Shonda Brock served in the US Military before becoming a medical professional and a busy mom. Somehow, she manages to squeeze in some writing every now and then. She is also an indie author advocate, hosting Paranormal Author Interviews and some of the best writing contests on the web.

Her paranormal romance series, Eternal Traces, features powerful female characters, exotic locations, and fascinating historical references. Readers who like diverse romances layered with mysticism, pulse-pounding action, and a fair amount of blood will enjoy her books.

I’m thrilled to introduce you to Shonda. I’ll leave all her links at the end…

4 1/2 Hours 

Love Right Now

How much longer U.S. families spend together weekly when they often play music around the house. They’re also 18% more likely to say, “I love you.” “When people listen to music together, their neurons actually fire synchtonously,” says Daniel Levitin, PH.D., a neuroscientist and Musician who consulted on this study. “For reason scientists don’t completely understand.” (Shape mag Aug 16)

Who can explain love or the human psyche?  But I can explain that a good song speaks to the soul….what  else is needed other than maybe a bottle of wine and 4 1/2 hours.

  Stay Inspired,
Shonda
