Book of the Day: Beyond the Dark


The winner of Saturday’s book, an autographed copy of Witch Heart, Julie, who said, “I love a combination of the rough and ready exterior, sense of humor, and soft marshmellow heart. Both hot and adorable!” Congrats, Julie! Please email me at anyabast(at)gmail within two weeks of this post date to collect your prize!

I wish I could find a better, bigger picture of the cover of today’s book. It’s gorgeous in person. All these authors were at RAW and I had a copy of this anthology signed by ALL of them. So, today’s book is a special treat — an autographed copy of Beyond the Dark.

Lora Leigh does it… in the lair of a strange breed, part man, part wolf, on the hunt for the woman he craves-and needs-to fulfill a hunger clawing at him from within

Angela Knight does it… in the psychic realm of a woman attuned to the touch of strangers-and the powerful temptations of a seductive and mysterious protector.

Emma Holly does it… in the fantastic Demon World where a powerful Queen rules-until she commits the sin of falling in love with the handsome son of her worst enemy.

Diane Whiteside does it… in an alternate universe of Regency magic where two lovers are threatened by a vicious mage, and swept up in a turbulent war off the Cornish cliffs.

Everything I write is paranormal and all the stories in this anthology are paranormal, too. As a reader, what do you enjoy most about paranormal stories?

  1. Easy question! I read paranormal because it is an escape from everyday life. I love to be transported to someplace, sometime, somewhere that is fantastical!!

  2. I love that in paranormal stories, absolutely anything is possible.

  3. I like the mystery and exoticness of the paranormal. I love things outside the norm to open my mind to the possibilities.

  4. I love the mystery and the new worlds that are built. There can be so much imagination and I just find it amazing that someone can create all that.

  5. The reason I love fantasy/sci-fi and paranormal is so much is that rules can be made and they don’t have to conform to the real world. It’s escapism at its best and I for one, need that break from real life!

  6. I think what draws me most to the paranormal genre is the danger of it. It’s dark and mysterious, and occasionally dark and humorous, and you can never truly know everything that could happen when people so outside the norm are involved.

  7. I have always been a fan of paranormal. What I like about it, is the possibility of the unknown existing. In this world of science, we are taught that everything can be explain with science. What can’t be explain by science does not exist. I just refuse to believe that. There are things that can never be or has an scientific explanation.

  8. I’ve always liked paranormal because I love the worlds that authors created. Also I love how each author adds their own little spin on paranormal lore.

  9. What I like best about paranormal stories is the encouragement to use your imagination to take yourself away from the stresses of reality. The impossible is possible.

  10. I love the feeling that I’m peeking into worlds we’re not meant to see or experience. Truly, anything can happen, and many amazing authors have written amazing stories.

  11. I love that anything can happen and happens and you don’t know what kind of world you will visit the next time…
