Arelia LaRue Book #4 Oppressed Randomness

Randomness. Just to let readers know that although some of the stuff in the series is sad and tragic, the overall objective is positive. So, if you're having a bad day, chin up!

I love this song!!! Enjoy
Bunny Wailer sings this one.

Arelia LaRue Book #4 Oppressed Randomness

Lots of readers are interested in the Voodoo/Hoodoo aspect of the series.

One of the most scientific books written on the topic is by Harvard-trained ethnobotanist Wade Davis.

The guy basically travelled to Haiti and investigated the creation of the legendary Voodoo Zombi!

Haitian Voodoo is a bit different from New Orleans Voodoo but just as fascinating.

Here is the cover if you're interested. It's not fiction so it has a lot of science type terms.

If you don't feel like reading it, there is also a movie version of it (of course!)

Here is the first part of the film, enjoy!

Welcome Back Lucy!

Today, in celebration of her brand new book, Fallenmore, I have the honor of welcoming back my dear friend, Lucy! 

It's All About the Music Man!

 My father in law would always say, in his best hippie pretend tone, "It's all about the music." We would all laugh and roll our eyes at him. But in my own personal case, it is true.

I live with the music on. When I am in the car, I'm howling alongside to my favorite tunes. When I am at home cleaning, I am shaking my butt to the rhythm of the music. When I shower, may I add BEST ACOUSTICS EVER!, I am also pretending to be the next American Idol. And when I write it is no exception, I must always have a personally made soundtrack in the background.

There is music for everything. Music to slow dance to, music to bang your head to, music to exercise to and for some 18+ activities. *winks* Music can change and soothe moods; it is such a great therapy!
Music is such an incredible way of story telling. Yes, we write books that do just the same, but to tell a whole story in less than five minutes, well, that is something.
Since our host, Kira, shares my addiction to music, I thought I would share a few songs from the Fallenmore Soundtrack and their music videos.
One scene in Fallenmore, Jade and Blake hit a karaoke bar. I won't say what amazing thing happens here, but Blake dedicates a very well fitting song to someone special:

 I know... may be pretty lame and their hair is kind of funny, but this song will forever be a classic.

I absolutely love Within Temptation. All of her songs are absolutely amazing, so if you didn't know about them, I suggest you check them out.

Well, that is it for me folks!

Thank you Kira for having me over and letting me share my own taste in music with your fans and friends.


Thank you Lucy!

If you guys haven't already checked out Lucy's fab books, please do so! Especially Fallenmore which can be found on 


When darkness consumes you; will it be hard to find the light?
After Jade's world was torn apart, she is unsure of where she belongs, if anywhere at all. Deceived by those she trusted the most, she must now accept her fate and the life that lays before her.
The voices are back but this time, they are trying to lure her into the darkness. But could they be telling her the truth? That the only person she has been able to trust since the death of her boyfriend, Avan, is lying to her too? If the voices are right... Could she really trust him?

In Fallenmore, the second book in the Feathermore Trilogy, Jade will embark in a quest through the pits of Hell. The question now is: once she is in, will they ever let her out?
