Guest blog and Giveaway with Angie Fox




Hi, thanks for having me today. I’m so glad to tell you a bit about my new book, and how it’s gotten me out of a tough spot with a few of my old college professors (well, maybe). You see, I graduated Journalism School from the University of Missouri. It was one of the first journalism schools in the country and let’s just say they take the news very seriously.

Whenever I go back to visit, some of my professors like to tease me about how I don’t really use my degree. Because writing about vampires, werewolves and things that go bump in the night isn’t “real” writing.  According to them, at least.

And I suppose I can sort of understand where they’re coming from. I spent all those years learning how to present news facts, only to turn around and make things up for a living. Of course, I like to remind them that they actually have to wear shoes to work.

Flash forward to this new series. Immortally Yours is about a group of paranormal MASH surgeons. It takes place in and around the MASH 3063rd during a centuries-long supernatural war. And while the hero is a tough-as-nails wounded warrior and the heroine is the doctor who saves him (in more ways than one), we still need coverage of what is happening outside the camp.

Enter PNN: the Paranormal News Network. It’s the supernatural version of CNN, well, with a few fanged, horned, and other exceptions. And while PNN offers a steadying presence in the book, the news reporting often borders on the sensational. It’s my book, I can do what I want, right?

For kicks and grins (and of course, to make use of that “New Media” class), I’ve set up the “official” PNN website. It’s a bit like The Onion, only paranormal. And it allows me to offer up a fun taste of the series, while immersing readers in the world of PNN.

Check out PNN at www.PNN-Network.com

Immortally Yours
Angie Fox

IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE GODS… 
No one patches up the incoming wounded like Dr. Petra Robichaud. Recruited by the gods for her uncanny medical skills, she’s the best M*A*S*H surgeon in the army. Along with a nosy guard sphinx,vegetarian werewolf, and otherparanormal paramedics, she bandages soldiers who are built like Greek gods (literally). But when one sexy immortal ends up on her operating table—half dead and totally to-die-for—Petra’s afraid she’ll lose her patient and her heart…

NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN LOVE

Commander Galen of Delphi is one gorgeous but stubborn demi-god. When his spirit tries to slip out of his fatally wounded body, Dr. Petra has to slip it back in—unwittingly revealing her ability to see ghosts. Now that Galen knows her secret, he’s convinced she’s part of an ancient prophecy. If the oracles are right, Petra could lead Galen’s army to peace. And if he seduces her on the way to hell and back? Heaven knows—all’s fair in love and war…

Training Your Hellhound

I'm a fan of the Training Your Hellhound article as well, although I thought "Sasquatch: “Don’t Call Me Bigfoot” was hilarious, especially the Leonard Nimoy part!

My favorite article is Flip Flop Frankenstein.

Good to see you all! Thanks for playing. And glad you got the Leonard Nimoy part! My husband was convinced nobody was going to get that joke.

I can't wait to read this book. My favorite article is Use you Inside Voices: Tips from a Banshee Babysitter. These tips might come in handy when babysitting my nephews, lol. I loved all the articles though :)
