I've selected five paranormal novels from members on Paranormalists to post for our first event. Please go to the links and click on all the tags you agree with. This helps to move the author up on Amazon searches. If you would like your book to be considered for future tagging parties, please email me at
dlareejackson1 at gmail dot com (replacing the at with @ and the dot with .)
Okay, let's tag!

Okay, I'm looking for some brave bloggers that would be willing to help me manage this blog. This blog is evolving and there's so much more we could do with it, to make it all it can be.
So... That being said, I'm looking for volunteers.
Officer Commisions up for grabs:
Operations officers--Two positions. We need bloggers who would like to help put special promo events together--this includes events like tagging parties or setting up holiday bashes and scavenger hunts, Publisher weeks where we spotlight different publishers. If you love to throw parties, put together promos--this might just be your thing and you will have the flexibility to reserve up to a full week for special events. This can be anything from live updates from conferences, from a contact in the field--or a simple one day tag party.
Recruiter--I need a volunteer that would be willing to respond to requests to join--we have 56 spots left and multiple requests in the queue for new members. You simply send them an invite when you get an email and anwser any questions they have about the blog--posting, etc.
Art/Marketing officer--update new covers and create buttons and badges for special events.
Link swap specialist--your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go out and link swap with other sites, seeking other bloggers willing to post our links on their sites in exchange for us setting up a link to the their blog here. This can be anything paranormal related--from ghost-hunters, to pychics, to authors, artists, and even gamers who have blogs. This is about building a bigger community and reaching out to paranormal readers, wherever they may be.
Please email me at dlareejackson1 at gmail dot com, if you are interested.
Thanks for your help,
D L Jackson

Aubrey from Romancing the Book gave The Magic of Lavender a rating of Rose That Rules All, its top rating! Woot!
I'm so grateful Aubrey took the time to review it. All reviewers are swamped with requests these days, and it can be particularly difficult to get a self-pubbed novel reviewed.
Here's part of Aubrey's lovely review:
I've always loved books that center around Goddesses and The Magic of Lavender fits the bill perfectly.
The underworld that was created by Masters is unique in that it is an entirely different way at seeing Goddesses. The Inn is on ley lines that help Joss use her magic. Using the ley lines she makes the Lord of the Underworld angry. You really need to read the book to find out what happens!
I cannot wait to read the second book in this series and other works by Cate Masters. This book really made me escape my boring life and enter into one that magic is possible.
Thanks again, Aubrey!

He doesn’t give a damn about me. Lonely and bored, Blaire steps out of the sizzling sunny day into Lacey’s Lamp expecting a cool drink, not to be asked what she thirsts for more than anything else. Captivated by the festive light dancing in the barkeep’s gaze, she spits out the first silly thing that comes to mind. Unfortunately as thunderclouds gather, Blaire learns how dangerous wishes can be.

As particular as I am about correct punctuation, grammar, and getting all the details right, I worry that I missed something. Or that the storyline has a hole.
So I am thrilled that Decadent Publishing contracted my dark paranormal novel, Dead to Rights.
I'd self-pubbed it last year, but hoped an editor could help me kick it up to that next level. (There's always a next level!) Unfortunately, I can't afford to hire an editor.
I just finished first-round edits, and am loving it. And hating it. Grueling as edits can be, I know I'll be happy with the end results.
I also wasn't satisfied Dead to Rights was receiving enough exposure. Lately, reviewers are swamped, so getting any reviews are difficult, but it's a little more difficult to entice a reviewer to read a self-pubbed novel, unfortunately. I'm hoping that now it will receive a little more attention.
And I just received this cover in my email. Beautiful, isn't it?
