I'm going to blog way off topic today. Today is not a paranormal day. Nor is it a geek day. You see, I've made a decision to move. Not just a little move. Not even a cross country move. I'm moving out of the country. Doesn't that sound dramatic? Truth is, I'm moving just…Details
I've recently discovered the world of multifandom crossover videos. And it is good.
Imagine, my fellow geeksters, all your favorites rolled into one delicious movie. This one includes:
Feast on the glistening goodness:
In my H post, I uncovered the men of urban fantasy. Today let’s talk about the women. If trapped by a slobbering, fanged monster of any sort, these are the gals I’d want in my corner. Buffy Summers Where would urban fantasy lovers be without the original vampire fighter and honorary founder of…Details
Have you ever secretly wished that someone would come and fix your life? Take away the problems? Most of us have basic problems like bills, relationship struggles and health issues.

I have been reading as long as I can remember and love to talk about books, technology and anything else that is going through my head. Expect book related posts to be here in my little corner of the web. I'm also an aspiring writerI hope that you do enjoy my thoughts.

The other day I was tweeting with someone about the show Firefly. Those of you who follow me know that I’m borderline obsessed with it (okay, maybe not borderline). As that tweet revealed, I’m not alone in my passion. Invariably, every time I tweet about the show, someone (or several someones) pops up and enthusiastically…Details
I have a rather vain character who is, unsurprisingly, a vampire. His name is Esteban and he had his own Twitter account and Vampire Esteban blog. The blog was a vampire advice column for all the supernatural creatures in his territory. Unfortunately, the internet gremlins ate the database on his blog and all his wonderful advice went poof!
