Round Robin October 2015–do you believe in angels, spirits, ghosts, demons…

This month’s Round Robin topic is: Do you believe in angels, spirits, ghosts, demons or other ethereal beings or locations? What do you think when they appear in stories? Have you used them in your own stories. Absolutely. There’s too much in this world that’s unexplained to not believe. This world is a magical, mysterious place. Most likely, there are multiple dimensions we may never know about. Have you ever read about those people who just mysteriously disappear? Or the Bermuda Triangle? I’m sure I’m not alone with the belief the Bermuda Triangle could be a portal to another dimension. So, I’ve always believed that if you were open to the other side, they can and will contact you. This is why it’s so important to protect yourself if you’re trying to make contact. Something like the Ouiji Board can bring in anything, and it’s probably best not to mess with it at all. I’m sure that growing up in a house where unexplained things were something of the norm helps. When I was nine–maybe younger, my mother learned how to read tarot. She had an aptitude for it. If you talk to any of my childhood friends, they’ll tell you that we could be sitting in my house alone and still feel like someone was watching us. Things would disappear for years and then show up some place I’d checked multiple times. I’d sit in the living room alone in the house, engrossed in a book, only to have someone call my name. It wasn’t loud–more like a faint echo from across a great distance. With each call,...

Have you seen RR McCandless’s new cover for Hell Becomes Her?

Hell Becomes Her, the latest book in R.A. McCandless’ Flames of Perdition series, releases Thursday, November 19th.  Here’s what all the fuss is about: Angels should be a human’s worst nightmare. Del didn’t think there was anything worse than angels, or their fallen kin, demons. She and her partner Marrin helped to keep the world safe from the horrors of escaped demons for generations. But when Del’s daughter is kidnapped by a shadowy group, Del will find that the world is even more dangerous than she suspected. There are worse things than angels and demons. Release Thursday, November 11th Excerpt The doors slid back exactly as they were supposed to, and Del pointed both her SIGs through the opening. She knew it was wrong. Two hands on one gun with a straight-thumbs hold was the correct way to give proper support to aim and shoot quickly and consistently. Hollywood liked to show action heroes shooting from the hip, or blasting away without aiming and taking down a room full of bad guys, whose best response was to fire impotently at the ceiling or comically into other bad guys. It was all so much useless eye candy. A gun in each hand gave support to neither and made it impossible to sight. She’d need independent use of each of her eyes, like a chameleon, to train the guns on different targets at the same time. Del knew it was wrong, but it looked damned impressive from the receiving end. “Hold your fire!” a voice commanded from outside the elevator. “Hold your fire!” Del wasn’t certain if the order was for her, the two ranks of Ljosalfar soldiers in their body armor who surrounded the elevator, or both. Either...
