Halloween Blog Tour

Juniper's "Freak Me Out" Halloween Contest


I'm ashamed to admit it, but this time of year freaks me out. Especially now that I'm a writer, because Halloween is when paranormal rules, when the vampires, werewolves, witches and goblins come out to play ... and kick my contemporary/historical erotic romance ass to the curb.

I want to play too! So I've decided to write a paranormal story, but I need a little help here. The paranormal world is vast and weird. I need a little direction. PLEASE, vote in the comments on your favorite type of paranormal story--or the kind you'd like to see more of. You'll be entered in my FREAK ME OUT contest. The prize? You pick a character/creature and I'll name it after you. And I'll give you a free download of my latest Ellora's Cave release, My Three Lords. Here are some options:

1. Angels and Demons
2. Witches and Wizards
3. Vampires
4. Shapeshifters
5. Psychic powers
6. Gargoyles or Goblins
7. Fill in the blank and totally freak me out!

In the meantime, please enjoy this scrumptious hunk who's still getting ready for Halloween. He doesn't quite have his clothes off yet ... he could really use a hand, don't you think?


And...there he goes. Sigh. Thanks for your help!



Now it's time to hop back on the bus and continue the blog tour. Enjoy!

I'll go with number 7 -- Kreepy Klowns totally freak me out... (then again, I probably wouldn't read it if it were too freaky...)

Still, I choose number 7, and how about a mad scientist? An extremely sexy, mad scientist? Make him gay and I'll buy the story! (Hmmm. I just might write that one myself!)

Annie Nicholas said...

Paranormals need pazze. How about a love story between a dragon shifter and a mouse shifter?

He loves her but now he needs to figure out how not to barbque her. LOL

Virginia said...

Hehehe Annie.
I say number 5. Psychic powers could be verra interesting.

heatherthurmeier said...

I think there's a lot of vamps in the world already, so I'm going to go with Angels and Demons. Hell can be pretty hot, right?

7 zombies frak me out

Ivelisse said...

I am going to go with Shapeshifters because there are so many animals out there that some authors haven't even touched on.

Christine H said...

I'm not really into Paranormal books, I've read about 10 books though but my love lies with contemporary books. Of the books I've read and enjoyed I love Vampires!! I can still see them as human, they look human still and they are always goregeous!

7, demonic dolls terrify

Sherry said...

I'll go with number 4. I love shapeshifters and I don't think you can ever have to many. There's all different kinds that you can have to.

I'd have to go with number 4 too. Shapeshifter. But be something that hasn't been done much.

My favorite is werewolf shapeshifter series...I love it when it turns into a series and you get to check up on characters you already read about!

joder said...

I like shapeshifters. You can go from being a dork one minute to a hottie the next minute after shifting.

Jolie Cain said...

So hard to pick. Sometimes I like vamps, sometimes shifters, sometimes psychic powers. I love 'em all. lol!

Donna said...

I would choose shapeshifters, too...lions and tigers and bears, oh, my! And let's not forget wolves. One advantage with shapeshifters is that they can make love in either form so there are twice as many opportunities for you to write those hot scenes you have such a gift for writing. Additionally, many live in packs or prides, just let your imagination run wild with that thought for a moment here. :D

I am a shifter girl, never get tired of the variety and imagination that I find in these storylines.

I love books that have more than one kind of paranormal in them.
I'd love to see a story that is a combination of #2, #4 and Fae.

Linda said...

Shapeshifters and vampire for me.

lastnerve said...

Whew, hot pictures! What was the question again? Oh yeah, I would totally go with psychic powers. Love reading about them!

Terra Pennington said...

Wow the eye candy looks good but got to say that the cover of My Three Lords got me. Need to check this book out.

Dawn said...

I think you should combine 4 and 5.....have the hero be one hot sexah shifter and the heroine have some kind of psychic ability.....that would make her more attractive to the alpha set :)

Shapeshifters... I can't get enough of them. :D

Juniper Bell said...

Wow, thanks for all the feedback! It looks like shapeshifters are getting the most votes ... but since it's a random drawing, who knows who will win! I'm going to draw the winner tomorrow. I can't wait to find out what I'm going to be writing next, LOL!!

Happy Halloween, all, and thanks for stopping by!

Juniper (who is totally freaked out right now) ;)
