I'll be adding my two cents as an "expert" on September 22 at the Boulder Writers Alliance Expo. I'll be offering feedback about "Writing Genre Fiction" and "Expanding Your Creativity As a Writer Through Hypnosis." Sounds like fun. If you're going to be in the Boulder, Colorado area that day, please stop by and say hello. Here's a link:
I just read the fourth installment in the "Dexter" novels -- Dexter by Design -- by Jeff Lindsay. So, what (you might ask) does a serial killer have todo with the paranormal? As I read these books, I'm often reminded of my favorite creatures of the night: vampires. Dexter feels most comfortable at night, he has a dark secret and he's an unrepentant predator. Sounds vampiric to me. The other three novels are: Darkly Dreaming Dexter, Dearly Devoted Dexter and Dexter In the Dark. I have no idea why books about serial killers stroke my fur, but they do. I must be even weirder than I thought. Some parts of these books makes me laugh out loud. No wonder I can't write happy endings. LOL.
