Many thanks to Angie Fox for inviting me to blog, and kudos to you who are taking time out of your holiday to stop by!
Independence Day is a time to celebrate freedom. We have parades, picnics, and BBQs. We go to the lake, go to the beach, go to those rockets-red-glare fireworks displays. We honor our military men and women who have served the country. And, perhaps, if we're of foresight, we honor those who will serve in the future.
I also celebrate something else: The right to read and write what I want.
I love paranormals of any flavor in any genre.
Paranormal dark and edgy.
Paranormal with a mix of each.
Witches, wizards, warlocks.
Faeries, dragons, gargoyles.
Vampires, shape-shifters, demons.
Well, okay, depending on the demon, I can love 'em or hate 'em. But that depends on how the writer handles the character, right?
Yep, if it goes bump or boo by day or night, I'm a fan! Superheroes? I'm a fan there, too. I'm such a huge paranormal fan that I want to kick bad guy butt (creature or human!) and live to kick more.
We live in a time and place where we not only have the freedom to read what we love, we have the freedom to write what we love. Any flavor of paranormal (or non), any level of sensuality, any genre. We have the freedom, and we have the power!
So, corny as it may be, I say, "Hurray for the red, white and boo!"
What do you celebrate on the 4th? What freedom do you hold most dear as a reader and/or writer? Leave a comment to let me know, and you'll be entered to win an autographed copy of La Vida Vampire. Have a safe and happy Independence Day!
