Horses that can stab people…


S. L. Dearing:

I wrote this back in January, 2012, thought I would share again :)

Originally posted on ...And Everything in Between...:

So this Christmas, one of my new presents is a shirt that states, “I believe in horses that can stab people.”  Ok, so I asked for it, because I love unicorns and I love that they can stab people.  Maybe there are unicorns in my book…maybe… and maybe they kick butt… maybe… but I digress.

I have found that the mythology of mythical beasts and monsters is often up for debate.  For me, as long as you hold the fundamental truths as true, then it’s fine to change the rest of it.  For instance, I wrote a screenplay about vampires… they aren’t glittery, but they aren’t Vlad Dracul either.  They still feed on blood, they are still super strong, but sunlight doesn’t kill them and they aren’t afraid of crosses or holy water.  They are a super species of human, so you can kill them with a gun or a…

Five Book Facts and A Game of Tag – The Saga Continues…


Five Book Facts and A Game of Tag

A while back my friend Magen McMinimy tagged me to do a post about my dream cast for my book The Gathering: Book One of the Lia Fail Chronicles and then tag 5 authors to do the same, and in typical “Shannon Fashion”, I dropped the ball. So now Author Michael Loring has come up with something similar, but instead of with a dream cast you have to share FIVE facts about your book that no one else would know, followed by tagging four other authors to do the same with their book of choice!

A very simple game, but nonetheless fun!

Let’s get started!

1) All about your most recent or current release:

This is a collection of stories that center on matters of the heart, overwhelming feelings of love, and stories that make you stop to re-read those breathtaking moments between your favorite characters. Be it the angst, the turmoil, or the first kiss, these are stories that speak to your soul and warm you to your core.

2) Share FIVE facts about your book: Since my book is The Gathering, I’ll answer questions about that ;)
1. It took eight and a half years to write and publish The Gathering.
2. The Merganser family was originally named the Mortaver, Madison was originally Tuner, Brian was originally Grant (named after his godfather) and Paul was originally named Ian.
3. Vance and Stephan were originally slated for death.
4. I had no idea how it was going to end when I began writing it.
5. The Gathering was originally slated to be 3 individual books, now it’s the first in a series of a minimum of 4 novels and so far 3 compendiums and a Diary full or prequel.
3) Tag FOUR other Authors:
Ok, now go forth and let’s learn and tag… you’re it!!!
