Find out what probing questions I was asked by Bookswagger at http://bookswagger.com/2013/02/27/in-like-a-lion-the-chimera-chronicles-karin-shah-giveawayreviewinterview/#like-1215

Looking for a YA Editor to be a final judge for my RWA Chapters contest. I keep calling, but I’ve only left two messages. I’m hoping my persistence is impressive not annoying.

And in Chimera 2 (still thinking of titles– suggestions to do with ghosts most welcome) lions frolic in New York City’s Central Park.

Also, my cover is in the finals at http://www.indtale.com/cover-contest please stop by and vote! You have to subscribe, but it’s free and it’s a great site!

I am about halfway through Chimera 2 and I had been using the title IN SPIRIT. I think it’s ok, but I’d like something great.

I would love to hear any ideas people have. The theme is ghosts, so spirits, hauntings, etc. are all appropriate. I am spending way too much time considering this and not enough time writing, your ideas would be very welcome!

Meet Thalia February 17, 2013

I’m deep in the throes of writing book 2 in Chimera Series, but the series is a spin-off from BLOOD AND KISSES, so today I thought I’d go back in time and re-introduce Thalia Kent, the heroine of BLOOD AND KISSES.
Thalia is the local witches’ champion, meaning if there’s anything rotten, magically-speaking, in her town, it’s her job to get it smelling like a rose. Possession, curses, spells run-amuck, call Thalia. But Thala has a bit of a confidence problem, see she inherited the title, along with her raspberry birthmark in the shape of a crescent moon, from her late mother and Thalia has always considered herself one of the weaker witches of her line.
Thalia has been in training to be the champion her whole life, but witches are long-lived and she never expected to take over for her mother, so soon. When a vampire kills her mortal cousin, Thalia has to bring him down, but the vampire and witch communities don’t exactly see eye to eye, so Thalia knows very little about vampires that isn’t from TV. She’s forced to cross species lines and ask Gideon Damek, the oldest vampire in Rochester for help.
I am doing a blog tour and that has entailed several interviews. One of the interviews asked me about my favorite character I’ve written. Of course, I love them all, but I have a soft spot for Thalia. Despite the fact that she doesn’t appear to have the magical chops to do her job, she doesn’t let that stop her. If she needs to work harder, use more of her innate magic, or reach out into forbidden territory, she will do it. I’ve got to love that. Which is why I couldn’t give her up and she and Gideon make appearances in the Chimera Series.
How about you? If there a character that won’t let you go? Please share!

Happy Sunday!

Fantabulous Review from My Home Away from Home February 14, 2013

A lovely review by Dominque Goodall at My Home Away from Home

Here’s a snippet:

“I’ve not read a book that has chimeras in it as shapeshifters before…but this is definitely a series I’d turn to time and time again. It reminded me a little of Christine Feehan’s Carpathian series…but oh so much better!…”

5/5 Blue Monarchs
