Fanged friends, True Blood and TBR piles

We usually focus on vampires here at Bite Club but it's come to my attention that other things bite too! Werewolves, demons, even zombies. My question is...Would you all be interested in expanding our discussions to include any paranormal creature that sports a set of dangerous lookin' fangs?

True Blood season 3 starts soon. As if you didn't know by the absolute inundation of promotional material out there. I enjoy the books and I enjoy the show- for totally different reasons. I'd like to do a weekly feature for the show and I'm looking for a little help. If you would be interested in doing a weekly post about each episode as they air, email me at

My TBR pile is out of control! I added only one title to the every growing mountain: Cindy Gerard's latest Black Ops title, Risk No Secrets. I've been waiting for this one and Gerard definitely writes some of the best military type characters out there- her characters always have such depth to them and I can't help getting attached to them. She was actually one of the very first writers that I ever wrote a note to. I was extremely embarrassed to do it but I wanted her to know that as a military spouse I appreciated the realism of her books. It was a short little email but I will always remember because she responded back with kind words for me! My point? Jump outside the paranormal genre sometimes and read romantic suspense? Maybe. Now I have yet another question for you. Do you stick to one genre? Why or why not? Favorite authors from other genres?

Hmm, I like a few genres. Anything paranormal always catches my attention.
I love Cindy Gerard! I have a few of her books, not this one though.
I love True Blood even more!!!!

I enjoy a lot of genres, including paranormal romance, urban fantasy, steampunk (Gail Carriger), scifi romance (Linnea Sinclair, Ann Agirre, Susan Grant), science fiction, western romance, historical romance (Eloisa James), and contemporary romance.
I'd enjoy discussions of other paranormal fanged creatures, they're all good, even though I love vampires the best.

I would love discussions of any and all paranormal critters out there.

I adore True Blood and I adore Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire series, like you, for totally different reasons. If I knew I'd watch the show each week as it showed, I'd volunteer to do the blog writing. I just can't say for sure I will get to watch each week's episode as they show.

I read anything that intrigues me, Mt Git'r'Read has a big ol' chunk of mysteries of all subgenres: thriller, cozy, suspense, paranormal, UF, etc. I read chick-lit, contemporary women's fiction, I just want to be entertained and escape.

Yes to werewolves!

Wish I got HBO . . . wish I could simply get any reception! I can't always get in my stations!

Have been enjoying the Sookie books for a number of years. I'll have to try and get the series on CD, I guess!

I'm all for talking about all of the things that go bump in the night or at the very least the ones that bite. I'm an equal opportunity paranormal creature lover.

I'm beside myself with anticipation over Season 3! I'm dying to find out how they're going to work the whole Bill kidnapping scenario.

I'll try just about anything once. It doesn't really matter what the genre is. If the story intrigues me and pulls me in then I'm more than happy to read it. Like Vickie said - I too just want to be entertained.
