Shiny Things Weekend Writing Warriors 8/18/2019

  Hi, I’m Karin Shah and I’m new to weekend writing warriors! I love anime, manga, dogs, and of course, reading! I write Paranormal Romance. I’m currently working on the final book in my Chimera Chronicles series. Bk 7, it’s more fun to read from the beginning, but readers should be able to jump in […]

Shiny Things week of February 8th

So what’s distracting me this week? 1. Conference! On Tuesday, I preserved through Romance Writers of America’s perpetually overwhelmed servers to register for the National Conference which is in NYC this year! 2. Even though it’s like my twentieth year of going to the conference, I always meet new people, and learn something new (or […]

Fear and NaNoWriMo

Since it’s NaNoWriMo, I’m going to share a writing struggle. Every one of the Chimera Chronicles was inspired by something. 1. In Like a Lion has heavy the Pretender overtones. 2. Entity Mine was inspired by an episode of Discovery channel’s old A Haunting. 3. The Lion’s Share is inspired by an episode of Supernatural […]

Denver!

  If you’re in Denver this weekend, stop by The RWA Literacy Autographing and say helllo to me (and hundreds of other authors)!   https://www.rwa.org/Literacy.org    RWA National Conference requires the proper armor, pedicure, new shoes and dress.   Meanwhile at home…ugh, dusty…

Shiny Things October 3rd, 2016

There are so many Shiny Things to distract me this time of year, I don’t have time to list them all! I’ve  started writing book 5 in the CHIMERA CHRONICLES. The draft title is DRAGON’S FLAME. This is the oldest brother Kyle’s book. I had been going in reverse order, youngest to oldest, but Ky’s story […]

she went to the RWA literacy autographing and saw this!

Me! Scary I know. So here’s the situation: you’re walking through the RWA Literacy Autographing in San Diego. I know you want to get the big names autographs, but when you’re done, if you like shifters, stop by and say hello to me. I’ll be wearing this (Pictured above): my Supernatural T-shirt. I’ll want to […]

Shiny Things June 28, 2016

A look at the things distracting me this week. My books arrived in the mail! It’s lovely to hold your physical book in your hands. The thrill never goes away! I’m busy as a beaver working on getting Lion’s Prey ready for its August release. I hope the extra weeks I took will translate into a […]

All My Favorite People Are Dead

Or I guess I should say that they don’t exist. You see, though of course I love my family and friends, a large number of my loved ones are fictional characters. Many people get excited about meeting the actors who play characters they love, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki from Supernatural for example, but for […]

Shiny Things Apr 23, 2016

Those who’ve read a number of my blogs know I do most of my writing on the treadmill (Which doesn’t make me thin, just keeps me healthy), but here’s what it looks like when I write from my couch. This is my brindle basenji Ranger on my lap. Our vizsla Lali usually pushes in too, […]
