Please Let Me Introduce Myself … by Nancy Gideon

Thanks to the coaxing of a friend (Thanks, Diane!) I’m thrilled to join Paranormal Romantics as a regular contributor on the 25th of each month. Since I tend to be more lurking lone wolf than pack animal, it takes quite the push for me to join a crowd, but how could I resist such wonderfully kindred company?

Like all of us here, I love things out of this world – the unimaginable, the strange, the unique, the unexplored, the sometimes frightening, but at heart, I’m a true romantic. It’s all about two characters who connect and pull the reader into an irresistible love affair that’s juuuust a step beyond the expected.

I’ve been a fan of the preternatural since the original Dracula on Midnight Creature Feature had me closing the curtains tight for most of my growing up years. And don’t even get me started with The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery. I love that walk on the scary side (with a night light) which is why my heroes tend to be dark and dangerous and my plots filled with chilly suspense. Then toss in that too independent for her own good heroine to heat things up.

I can’t resist a story that takes a bite out of my imagination (sorry, couldn’t resist!). One book is never enough to satisfy. I’m a series junkie, both in what I read and what I write so it’s no surprise that my paranormals come with numbers attached, currently one through nine with both my vampires and my shape-shifters. Welcome to my “Midnight” and “By Moonlight” worlds.

I’m currently putting the finishing touches on REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT, the 9th book in my dark paranormal shape-shifter series, bringing fan favorite central couple, Max Savoie and Charlotte Caissie back in search of their happily-ever-after. And I’m excited to announce that ImaJinn Books will be re-releasing my entire “Midnight” vampire romance series, including the loooong out of print first three books, with new covers, one-per-month in 2015. That’s a lot to sink your teeth into!

Looking forward to seeing you again same time next month!

Glad you're here, Nancy. This is a great group of writers. And I'm looking forward to the next shifter novel. Love Max & CeCe. Can't wait to see what they get up to this time.

I loved those creature feature movies, too, only I watched them on Shock Theater. Loved 'em all. Congrats on the rereleases and the soon-to-be new release!

Hi Nancy *waves*

I'm excited to see the new covers on my old favorites the Midnight books. They were my first exposure to you and I fell hard for the strong characters and wonderful storytelling.

I wish you all the best!
