Musings of Mistress of the Dark Path

Today I’ve got an interview for you all with Simone Beaudelaire.  She writes in several genres including romance and paranormal.  Her latest book, The Naphil’s Kiss, just released earlier this year.  This one looks good and I’m planning on reading it myself!  Check out her interview below, along with the details on her novel.



*Note- my responses to the author’s answers are in italics.

Tell us something dark about yourself.

Vampires are sexy.


Oh, yes.  So long as they remember to wipe their mouth after drinking 🙂

You are on a deserted island and can only choose one beverage to have besides water.  What would it be?

On a deserted island? That would be hot. How about chilled champagne


Whatever floats your boat!

If you had to choose between a bullwhip, cat o’ nine tails, or a crop, which would you pick?

Um, I’m a…

From a good author friend!

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Will Macmillan JonesHi, my name is Will and I write books. Well, you probably guessed that, otherwise I wouldn’t be here on Chris’ inestimable blog, wittering away as usual about stuff that might interest a tiny section of the population of the planet. Of course, as you are reading this (unless you aren’t in which case you can get lost ) you’ll probably be aware that I often write my blog in a sort of stream of consciousness style, or as my friends put it, a stream of unconsciousness.

Anyway, I digress.* I’m supposed to write a bio here, and whilst I usually treat guidelines in the way most people approach parking restrictions, this time I’m going to be a good boy. Here goes. Will Macmillan Jones lives in Wales, a lovely green, verdant land with a rich cultural heritage. He does his best to support this heritage by drinking the local…

Writer Beware – Hugh Howey and the Indie Author Revolt

I worked at a bank right after deregulation happened to banks. It was several years ago. I felt sorry for the bankers. For years they sat and raked in the money. They don’t even manufacture a product, their customers bring it to them.

Faced with the sudden imperative to be profitable, they had no idea how to do that. They were no longer the only game in town for many of the services they offered. Savings and Loan associations could offer checking and savings accounts.

To top it all off, Credit Unions sprung up like weeds and they also offered a place to put and retrieve money.

It was a difficult time for banks. Everything changed for them and their livelihood was in jeopardy for the first time since the creation of the banking system.

They went from a comfortable existence to literally fighting for their livelihood.

I think the same thing is happening to traditional publishing now. They have no idea how to react to the current indie situation. What began as a small wave is quickly turning into a tsunami.

While I feel sorry for the traditional publishing houses who really have no idea how to deal with their new situation, I remain proudly Independent.

Good luck to all.

How the Grinch Stole Grammar

I wonder if he stole spelling too…

Stroppy Editor

(With apologies to Dr Seuss)

Every Who down in Who-ville liked English a lot
But the Grinch, who lived just north of Who-ville, did NOT!
Whenever he thought of the language, he’d languish
In horrified anger and furious anguish!
But the funny thing was that beneath all this hate
He somehow believed, well, that English was great.
But it wasn’t the English the Whos wrote and spoke –
No! THAT made him scowl! Made him fume! Made him choke!
Made him choke!
Made him choke!

So what on earth was it the innocent Whos
Were doing so wrong with the language they’d use?
If you were to walk into Who-ville one day
You’d see lots of people with fine things to say.
They’d joke and exclaim and they’d promise and sing,
They’d chat and debate – yes, they’d do anything
That this wonderfully versatile…
