More Recommended Paranormal Books

I've added a few more entries to the list of recommended paranormal books, which can be found here in the November, 2004 archives. You can also get there by going to my website ( and clicking on the "recommended books: fiction" area. A couple of the books I'm adding are historical paranormals. I have to admit that, because I don't gravitate toward historicals in general, I threw the baby out with the bath water. I haven't ever read an historical paranormal that I can recall. I think the repressive and antiquated notions about women present in some/most historical books are just too unpleasant for me to read. (That reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw: "I'll call myself a post-feminist when I live in a post-patriarchy.") Anyway, at the RT convention I was given complimentary advance copies of two paranormal historicals: "The Companion," by Susan Squires and "After Midnight" by Teresa Medeiros. I enjoyed both of them, but I can't say enough good stuff about "The Companion." Very well-written, compelling, and clever. If you enjoy paranormals -- of any kind -- run right out and get this book. Thank heavens it's going to be a series! I'll say a bit more about it in the listing under "recommended books" noted above.

I can't wait to read The Companion. Susan Squires is a member of my chapter and is signing copies of the book on May 14 at our meeting. She is a very nice woman and a generous writer who is always ready to help others.

BTW, I got your blog from Shalla's list.

Thanks, Rene. I really did enjoy "The Companion." I love when a book grabs my brain and hangs on 'til the last page. I'm already sorry I have to wait for the next installment!! When you see her, tell her "Write fast!!" Here's hoping things are going well with your writing, too!
