Use Your Inside Voices: Tips From A Banshee Babysitter
SATANS KINGDOM, VERMONT--
As we all know, children can be little angels or little devils. If you’re tapped to be the responsible party for a little ghoul (or ghoulette) this weekend, you may need some sage advice. Caitlin O’ The Wisp has been minding wee ones for nigh on five centuries and offered these suggestions:
· Bring some things to play with like a notebook, magazines, or colored paper and markers. And if there’s a graveyard near, nothing beats a rousing game of flashlight tag!
· If they’re yelling as part of a temper tantrum, go ahead and shriek along with them. It confuses the heck out of them (for a minute). Once they’re looking at you in confusion, you can distract them with a toy or a treat.
· If the children start to fight amongst themselves, leave them be--they’ll usually work it out within a few minutes. If not, the evil eye or a compulsion curse can be your best friend.
· Scary stories are a great before-bed treat. If you choose the right one, they will be quietly petrified and frozen in place for hours. Caitlin recommends “Axe Murder Hollow”, “The Tale of the Storm Hag” or “Where’s My Liver?”
So why am I on here, talking about banshee babysitters? It’s all part of the launch of Immortally Yours, the first book in the new Monster MASH series. The books take place in and around a paranormal MASH unit during a seemingly endless war.The heroine and her colleagues at the MASH 3063rd have been drafted until the end of the conflict, which is bad for her but even worse for people like her vampire roommate, Marius. They’re living in this quirky, ad-hock camp, trying to make the best of it while they work long hours in the OR, putting soldiers back together – knowing that they’re probably going to see these injured heroes again and again – if they’re lucky.
I wanted to give readers a taste of the series. So I set up a special website for PNN (The Paranormal News Network), which is the news outlet covering the war. www.PNN-Network.com is the supernatural version of CNN, with a few exceptions. Sure, PNN can be a little sensationalistic, with articles like: “Mayan Insider Scoop! Developed Armageddon “Prophecy” After Tequila Bender” and “Five Things in Your Lair That Can Kill You.” But, hey, nobody’s perfect.I figured PNN would be a fun way to give everyone a sneak peek at the kind of world I've created in my new series. To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of Immortally Yours right now. Just check out www.PNN-Network.com and post the title of your favorite article in the comments below!
