The break has been long. VERY long. I’m starting to get a bit antsy. No promises, but I’d like to start blogging here again on a regular basis.
I’m thinking the usual, you know–life updates, books I’m reading, new releases I’m excited about (*ahem* SPEAKING OF WHICH Brandon Sanderon’s latest Mistborn novel The Bands of Mourning comes out in OCTOBER and I may have already preordered it. 😛 )
Anyway, another feature I thought I’d start on my blog was essays on different types of fairytale/mythical monsters/creatures. I’m not talking about your typical fairies, werewolves, vampires, and centaurs. either, I’m thinking more like the dullahan or the selkie and things like that–lesser-known monsters and creatures. Myths, legends, and fairytales have always fascinated me–I read the Grimms Brother fairytales before I ever even picked up a fantasy novel. Lately I’ve really been interested in urban fantasy that deals with monsters and legends–not just Irish Gaelic, but all sorts of creatures (I’m even writing my own take on a vampire hunter story, if you can believe that!)
So, on that note, does anyone have any ideas of what creatures I should research and blog about? I’m compiling a list! 🙂 Let me know via FB or my contact page if you have an idea that you want to see covered. And who knows, it just might make it into one of my stories at some point! 🙂
