All Things Cryptids with T.F. Walsh
Hi and thanks for having me on your blog today.

CLOAKED is written as a Paranormal Romance, but what is paranormal exactly. Paranormal is anything that is considered to be outside science’s ability to explain or measure. Unlike the supernatural, the definition of paranormal doesn’t preclude its existence, it just presumes that we don’t have enough evidence either way. I love learning about paranormal subjects as much as I enjoy writing about them.

My favorite subject of paranormal are Cryptids. Cryptids are any form of animal or creature that is either extinct or has not had its existence confirmed. Including extinct creatures like dinosaurs alongside creatures like Bigfoots, the Loch Ness Monster and werewolves is a telling definition for me. Just as many people believe that some species of recently extinct animals like Tasmanian Tiger may still be alive in hidden pockets of forest, many others believe that Sasquach may by hiding in remote areas of wilderness.

Ghosts, spirits and demons are another subject of the paranormal that fascinates me. More and more science and pseudo-science is being directed to investigating this area of the paranormal. And increased interest from pop culture has seen more television and other media devoted to these investigations as well. Another subject of paranormal is aliens, and just because there is no evidence doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. Just that we still haven’t found evidence.

What do you believe in that supposedly doesn’t exist?
Cloaked Blurb:

Raised by an overly protective wulfkin pack, Daciana leaps at the chance to venture into the human world for her one-year independence ritual. But after someone steals the endangered bear cubs she’s been assigned to protect, she must locate them or lose her job and return home in disgrace. The sexy inspector on the case isn’t making this any easier. He knows nothing of her kind, and wulfkin rules forbid relationships with humans.

Newly divorced Inspector Connell Lonescu trusts no one but himself. He’s convinced relationships are a waste of time and thinks burying himself in work will ease the pain. Yet he’s attracted to the gorgeous and mysterious Daciana, even if there’s something slightly odd about her. Can Connell learn to trust the sexy but secretive woman? 

Cloaked is the prequel to Cloaked in Fur, book 1 in The Wulfkin Legacy Series. Find out how Daciana and Connell fell in love and set in motion the paramount events that forever change their lives and those around them.

Calling All Beta Readers!

Hey all! I hope you’re all doing great.

Me… wonderful. Shoe biz is taking off, while slowly but surely allowing me more time to work on the books I want to publish this year.

I’m hoping to finish my current round of edits by the end of the month, but I don’t think I’m going to make my self-imposed 31 October deadline. But that’s okay. I’ve achieved a ton.

That said, I need some help. More specifically, beta readers.

For those of you new to the term, beta readers read over the story and comment on things they liked, or didn’t, or things that didn’t make sense, that sort of thing. In particular, I’m looking for people who can highlight where I still haven’t brought in enough information from the previous series.

And as always, I’m willing to repay by critiquing your work, beta reading, or even searching for and finding what’s making a story not work. (I’ll try my absolute best at this, of course.)

If you’re interested, please leave a comment with info on your book (name, genre etc), what you’d like for me to do in return, and your e-mail address. 

Now, the information on my book:

Genre: YA Epic (Portal) Fantasy
Name: War of Six Crowns: The Heir’s Choice
Blurb (still needs editing): 

Sixteen-year-old London girl Callan Blair thought that going to the elves would unlock the mystery around her past. Instead, it thrusts her right in the middle of Tardith’s political games. On the one side are the elves and King Keill, her grandfather. On the other, King Aurek of Icaimerith, who also moonlights as the evil entity that has destroyed Callan’s life many times over.

Aurek is on the edge of erasing the elves out of existence. The only thing that will stay his hand: Callan marrying his heir. Not wanting to let her choice destroy a nation, she agrees.

At least she isn’t going into the lion’s maw alone. Quinlan Westenmere, the Nordian commander who had brought her to the elves, swears to go with her. Only he insists she take more Nordians with her. Darrion and Gawain are tasked with rescuing the Black Knight, Nordaine’s last blood heir, and Aurek has him.

Things don’t get simpler as the wedding approaches. Gawain refuses to support Callan’s decisions. She has to betray both the elves and Aurek to help find the Knight. On top of that, her elvish entourage leaves much to be desired.

But nothing compares to her meeting the man she’s to marry.   

So… what do you think? Anyone interested in helping a girl out?
