Mythical Creatures with Laura Greenwood

I've loved mythology since I was really small, so much so that I'd buy books on Ancient Egypt (that was my absolute favourite mythology) with my pocket money. But picking just one creature is really tough! There are so many, and as a paranormal romance author, that gets all the harder! I've written about shifters, vampires, necromancers, dryads and sirens, not to mention the mermaid I'm writing with J & L Wells for this set! Which makes it really hard to pick.

So I'm going with Ammit, mostly in homage to my love of Ancient Egypt as a child. Ammit is an Ancient Egyptian demon who was part lion, part hippo and part crocodile, and she was also known as the devourer of the dead. Which sounds kind of ominous, but actually is really interesting. The Ancient Egyptians believed that when a person's soul traveled to the afterlife, their heart was weighed by Anubis (the God of Cemeteries & Embalming) against the feather of Ma'at (the Goddess of Truth). If the heart was heavier than the feather, then the soul had led a bad life, and Ammit devoured the heart, stopping that soul from reaching the afterlife. 




Sorry, history lesson is now over! I find it all so fascinating that I can't help myself! Which is why I chose Ammit in the first place. The whole mythology is fascinating to me, and I'm planning to write a series based on the Ancient Egyptian Gods & Goddesses at some point...I don't think they get enough page time!

I hope you enjoy our Creatures box set! There's a fantastic collection of stories in it!






Four years ago, Ronan thought he'd lost his best friend, and he's never truly recovered.
Coral spends her time trying to master her control of the sea, under the watchful eye of Merrick. But a twist of fate leads the two of them together, where they discover that there's a past that wanted to stay forgotten. Is the ocean's voice stronger than a lost memory? Will Coral follow her heart?

You want me to choose just one mythical creature that’s my favorite? That’s like asking me to choose only one ice cream flavor or tell you which Doctor in Doctor Who was the best! (*cough*Ten*cough*)



I’ve changed my mind a few times but I’m going to settle on Cthulhu, an old god that is a part of the Lovecraftian mythos. As a big fan of both H.P. Lovecraft and horror in general (I was reading Stephen King at 7), the idea of an ancient being so alien and unable to be understood, lurking in the depths below hits all the pleasure centers in my brain. I can’t tell you why that appeals to me so much but there are hints of it in my own work, subconsciously added.

Which is probably why one of my favorite movies, Cabin in the Woods directed by an old god himself, Joss Whedon, is one of my favorite movies with an ending that makes me smile. 

I have issues.







They say demons and angels don’t mix. I say people should mind their own damn business.

My brother, Damian, has been my rock ever since mom left. Didn’t matter that I'm demon-blooded. I was his and he was mine.

But nothing lasts forever.

He wants me to go to college. I’d rather fight a hundred sentinels than lead a boring, safe life hiding who I am. So when a nephilim goes missing, I go behind Damian’s back to find the teen. Maybe if I can solve the case, he will upgrade me to his partner in crime solving.

As bodies begin dropping, I realize I’m in way over my head. But there’s no way I’m going to admit that, not when my future hangs in the balance. It's do or die time, and I'm not going down without a fight.

Mythical Creatures with Heather Marie Adkins

It’s hard to pick a favorite mythical creature. As a paranormal author, I LOVE THEM ALLLLLL. I’ve written books about the fae, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, and demons. Before it’s all said and done, I’ll have run the gamut of The Encyclopedia of Mythical Creatures.



But I guess if I have to choose, I’d always fall back on witches. Not the Wiccan-based, Circle-gathering type like me, but “Hollywood” witches. The ones who can conjure flame in their palms, manipulate real time and space, or use wands to do, well, anything (hey, Harry Potter, I’m looking at you.)

I don’t think there’s a limit to what witches can do. This world hurts and it burns and some days, it doesn’t feel worth existing in. When I sit down and write about witches who have the real power to change the world, it brings me hope. 

Not that it could ever be more than fiction. Just hope that magick, however small, does exist, if we only know where to look.








Ever O’Connell prides herself on being a good Wiccan, and her coven follows the path of the Goddess with love and light. But the “dark” witches in school—the BlackMags— keep pushing her toward the edge, until Ever finally finds herself at war.



Cade Bourdain inherited his father's thirst for power, drawing him into darker areas of magick. Despite his dislike for the “Fluffy Bunny” Wiccans, he feels an unearthly connection to Ever.

When the two strike up a secret relationship the real magic between them is ignited, generating a power that a dangerous warlock yearns to take for his own. Ensnared by the warlock, Ever and Cade’s conflicting covens must work together despite their differences—or else be destroyed by a common enemy.

The line between light and dark has never been so unclear.
