As an addendum to my last post, I have a new release! Entitled “Sing A Mournful Melody” it’s a piece I have been sitting on for quite a while. Thanks to my mentor, Patty G. Henderson, it finally sees the light of day. :) Set in 1900, it is a short historical Gothic fantasy–with vampires. :) Yes, yes, I know, but I couldn’t resist. My heroine (Maribelle) needed someone extraordinary to…well, you’ll have to read it yourself to see what she needs him for.

Wishing you all a bright blessed Beltaine!
My Beltaine altar by author–and yes, those are flowers from my garden.
I never have procured an appropriate goddess and god in love image for my collection. For instance a Celtic god and goddess that might fit this Beltaine day, one of the Celts four high holidays? That’s one of the things I’d like to do…someday, you know. That and spend Beltaine in Ireland. Who knows? Maybe one day…if only we didn’t have to fly to get there! *shudder* But if the hubby goes with me….*thinks* ahem… Getting back to the clear, educational thoughts about the day…
And hey, how about that? Beltaine, under its German title Walpurgisnacht, ties into my forthcoming book…:) More on that later….in the meantime, enjoy this joyous time of year, y’all! *hugs all around*
And for another little chuckle, this time, I’ve got another movie song stuck in my head!
Unusual paranormal characters in Romance
Juli D. Revezzo

Modern paranormal romance caters to women who want to dream a little more than the average reader. They crave the weird and just looking at the romance pages in Amazon or at the shelves in a bookstore, you’ll see publishers are catering to that wish list…..
Here’s a recent article I wrote on this subject. Check the rest of it out via The Wild Rose Press blog.
I can’t believe I forgot to show y’all this. Another of my new stories, Bargain with the Mountain King, has been released in another anthology, Crossing the River: An Anthology in Honor of Sacred Journeys.
Our stories are filled with journeys. Sometimes, though, we neglect the possibility that in our travels we will cross an important boundary, and we may never be the same again.
Crossing the River is an anthology of poems, myths, and tales that take the reader on many different kinds of journeys: travels in the company of deities, visits to other worlds, explorations within oneself, voyages with the dead (or back from death), and other excursions that lead to transformation. These are paths that challenge us and even change us along the way, for returning may not be as simple as retracing our steps.
Where will your journey take you? And who will you be when you return?
Proceeds from this one, as with all Bibliotheca Alexandrina anthologies, go to various charities. If you’d like to check it out, it’s available at Amazon and Createspace.
