A Paranormal Thanksgiving: Top 10 things to be thankful for…Guest post by Jean Murray

Before things kick off, I just wanted to put and idea out there. 
Imagine setting a thanksgiving table for some of our paranormal brothers and sisters.  The menu would have to be quite varied to include: blood wine, raw turkey, stuffed brains, pickled souls and magick maze. Not to mention the dinner conversation and a closet big enough to put all the various weapons they carry.  And don’t get me started on seating arrangements.  A host nightmare for sure.

So in the spirit of our Paranormal Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for?

Here are a few of mine:  

10.  Werewolves are the good guys in Twilight Series.  And not bad to look at either…

9.  Session 1-9 of X-files is available on Netflix

8. Our Blood Sucking friends taking TV by storm: True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Being Human (click here to see the Top 10 Vampire TV series). 

7.  There is such a thing called HORROR Romance!!  Monsters need love too.

6.  Zombies aren’t just for horror movies any more.  They have eaten our hearts in books, TV and films. Walking Dead Series – Which character are you?  Come meet my REVENS.

5. Zombie Survival Guide available on Amazon.  Prepare for the worst J

4.  Hunter from the Midnight Breed Series has his own book.    

3. Our superheroes of yesteryears are making a comeback!  Whether genetic mutants or otherworldly visitors.

2.  No matter how much the industry says vampires are out, the living dead are not dead. 

1.  Long live the P word:  Paranormal romance novels are more popular than ever, consuming more bookshelf space at the bookstores.

What are you thankful for?

Jean Murray is the author of the Key to the Cursed Series: Three sisters and their fated mates on a journey of love, redemption and war. Soul Reborn starts the series based on Ancient Egyptian Mythos.  A fabulous mix of action, suspense and indelible love story appeals to both paranormal romance and urban fantasy readers.
Learn more about Soul Reborn:


Asar, the Egyptian God of the Underworld, has been tortured and left soulless by a malevolent goddess, relegating him to consume the very thing he was commissioned to protect. Human souls. Now an empty shell of hatred, Asar vows to kill the goddess and anyone involved in her release, but fate crosses his path with a beautiful blonde huntress who has a soul too sweet to ignore.

Lilly, fearless commander of the Nehebkau huntresses, is the only thing standing in the way of the goddess' undead army unleashing hell on earth.  But Lilly has a secret—one she is willing to sell her soul to keep. If the Underworld god discovers her role in the dig that released the goddess, she will lose everything, including his heart.

  1. Loved this book!!! Can't wait for the others to come out! :) Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Just sent Soul Awakened to my editor last night. Yipee.


  3. Hi ladies! I'm thankful that readers are still interested in paranormal creatures (and...yeah...that the werewolves are the good guys in Twilight). :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I'm thankful that someone finally wrote a paranormal romance featuring Egyptian mythology. ;)

  5. I have one to add to my list...

    KICK ASS Alpha heroines. No sissy girls allowed here.

    I'm glad people are reading an Egyptian Paranormal Romance :-) Very glad!!!!


  6. I'm thankful for all the handsome heroes that make our hearts pitter-patter between the pages.

  7. Thankful for...herm, that paranormal puts magic back into fiction! ;)

  8. I second the handsome heroes with a twist of the paranormal ~ demons, vampires, shifters, gods, etc... Yum.

    One more thing to add to my list: that paranormal means so many things, it's limitless.

  9. I am thankful for the free ebooks I scored that feature leading males with less than normal misogyny levels! I like 'em rough sometimes, but class and romanticism are great too.

    OH! And the fact that heroes are brutal when they have to be and monsters are real (at least in my own little worlds). And, laughing hysterically at yourself while your best friend laughs with you. That is pretty awesome too!

  10. Hi Michel.

    Free ebooks-- excellent! I agree with the brutal heroes part, use of force takes on a whole new meaning, along with all the other stuff ;-)

    Thanks for sharing.

  11. I want to thank Brooklyn Ann for having me over to talk smut. I had a great time building our Paranormal Thanksgiving top ten list.

    Next: Paranormal Christmas, what's on your demon's list to Santa??
