Hi all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I’m gearing up for the release of SHADOW FALLING on August 30th. It’s the second book in the Scorpius Syndrome series, and boy, did I do a lot of research before writing those. Here are five things I didn’t realize when I started researching what would happen… Read More
New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti has
published over twenty-five dark paranormals, romantic
suspense, and contemporary romances, and her books have
appeared multiple times on several of the bestseller lists.
She has received a Publisher Weekly Starred Review
for Wicked Edge, Romantic Times Reviewer
Choice Nominations for Forgotten Sins and Sweet
Revenge, and RT Top Picks for several of her
novels. She believes strongly in luck, karma, and working
her butt off...and she thinks one of the best things
about being an author, unlike the lawyer she used to be, is
that she can let the crazy out.
Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a
bachelor's degree in Journalism with a Political
Science emphasis. While there she worked as the
Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, was a
member of the Pi Phi Sorority, and an intern for President
Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he
was no longer president.
After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate
aide before heading to law school, where she received her
Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho. She married
Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school
and became pregnant with their first child during the third
year. She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks
later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that. All she
remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the
testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap. But she
continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer. She worked
for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while
also teaching legal classes at her local community college.
Now she writes romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers.
Her current series are: The Scorpius Syndrome, The Realm
Enforcers, the Dark Protectors, the Sin Brothers, and Blood
Brothers. Follow Rebecca: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook | Newsletter
by Rebecca Zanetti So, I have a new post-apocalyptic series releasing, and I conducted tons of research before starting to write. Many of the foremost scientists of our times believe a humankind ending disaster is a matter of when and not if. And these are the smartest people on the planet! Did you know that… Read More
One of the things I really love about being a writer is doing research for a new book series. Writing always starts with a basic idea and the constant question of “what if?” After a short time I generally have a pretty good idea of who my main characters are, a little bit of their… Read More
by Sherrel Lee Thanks for stopping by to read this blog posting. I thought I would tell you a bit of how myth, legend and lore became the central focus for the Valens. I’ve always love myth and have read the classics stories–Greek, Celtic, Roman, and Norse and I realized that as much as I… Read More
Dragons and virgin princesses. I’ve always thought the stories of maidens sacrificed to dragons most unfair. Not just the sacrifice, but that if some hero came to save them they were his prize. After all, it could be anyone! And that was the seed for my story, The Dragon and the Princess, which first appeared… Read More
Is there anything better, hotter or more intriguing than a sexy, brilliant and tortured hero? A man or a male, if you’re reading paranormal, who’s been deeply and irrevocably hurt by his family, a woman or another in his para clan? Lord, I don’t think so. I love them dangerous and lusty – undecided about kissing… Read More
I’ve been writing professionally for several years and have multiple published books in various sub-genres to my credit. No matter what I’m writing—contemporary, paranormal, steampunk, historical—I always get the same question. Where do you get your ideas? Some ideas spring from life experiences—people I’ve known, things I’ve done. Some of the more fantastical ideas sprout… Read More
Don’t get any cats. Just don’t. Get some goldfish instead. Or guppies. Guppies are very quiet and peaceful. They float, wiggle their fins, open and shut their mouths, and in general are colorful but restful creatures. They’re not as much fun to Tweet about, but… Well, okay, 1 or 2 cats might be okay. But… Read More
As a writer, I love the first kiss in a story. I love planning it and writing it. The first kiss can set the tone for a book’s sensual level. It also kick-starts the push and pull of the romance. I’ve written quick ones, long ones, hot ones, and sweet ones. If you love romance,… Read More
Dreams. We all have them, but some are shallower than others. Hey, I’ve been trying to lose weight since high school. I always imagined what it would feel like to have the perfect figure. I’m still imagining. Someone will carve on my gravestone: She Never Lost Those Ten Pounds. Some dreams, though, are deeper and… Read More
