My Interview/Review by Dionne Charlet,

"Scorned is a fun read, much along the lines of an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a Sookie Stackhouse Louisiana-vampire-bar vibe and a sprinkling of angel lore reminiscent of Supernatural. The characters have that kind of kickbutt likability factor peppered with just enough personal imperfection to soon become endearing to any ravenous fantasy-genre reader in search of an otherworldly heroine. The fallen protagonist, Angelle-ically embodied in human form through Templeton's words, is not likely to be scorned by readers at all. It would be easy to see this character grow to command a fan following. There is a lot to love about this story, chock full of bad vamps, good vamps, more bad vamps, werewolves, demons, a touch of romance, and the coolest alternate dimension this side of the bayou. The bad news is the book is so hard to put down, it is over before you know it. Click here for the Kindle edition. The good news is there's a second book." ` Dionne Charlet,

Scorned - Under New Management!


Book 1 of The Fallen Angelle Series
by Josephine Templeton

I’m super excited to announce the re-release of Scorned, Book 1 of The Fallen Angelle Series.  This improved version of my Urban Fantasy with Romantic Elements is set in and around Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Angelle, God’s first Angel, fell from grace along with Satan. However, after thousands of years as Satan’s girlfriend, Angelle wants back into heaven and becomes human. Now she must atone for her sins and save as many souls as she damned while fighting vampires and demons. One more condition — she must remain celibate.

Jack, a vampire hunter, visits Angelle’s bar, and their attraction is instant. But after watching her walk away from a car accident, he’s convinced she’s a vampire and must die. When Angelle doesn’t burst into flames at sunrise, Jack joins her quest to save souls. The partnership is jeopardized when two of the Scorned Bride’s daughters enthrall him.

Angelle must save Jack from another dimension, but in doing so, she risks her salvation. Will Jack want to be saved by the time she finds him? And if they survive the Scorned Bride, can they survive each other?

Enjoy the demon-wings!

Ebook and Paper Books - The Best of Both Worlds

While the hubs watches football, I am curled up on the couch reading The Vines by Christopher Rice. The weight of the paperback and the smell of its pages bring me back to when I was a kid. There was no such thing as an eBook back then, and I am privileged to have grown up in that era.

I love eBooks too. They are convenient in purchasing, reading on the go and storing. And while one would think the youngsters of today are fully into eBooks, most of the time I find that they, too, prefer hand held paperbacks versus eBooks. I find that refreshing and comforting. It assures me that we all will enjoy the best of both worlds for a long long long time.

Enjoy the reading!

True Blood Series Finale (Spoilers .. or Not)

Happy holidays!

The hubby and I spent the days after Christmas catching up on seasons six and seven of True Blood.

As many of you know, the HBO series is based on the Sookie Stackhouse book series by Charlaine Harris. If you like vampires, shapeshifters, werewolves, witches, fairies and cute sidekick humans, this is right up your dark alley!

I am not a big fan of spoilers because I prefer to experience movies and books without knowing what's coming. Therefore, all I'm going to say is that I am pleased with the way the show's writers closed the various story threads ... especially Sookie's. For me, as a writer, it was a logical ending for a character who never got anything she wanted. Maybe for a short time, yes, but in the long run, we feared Sookie would always have her happiness snatched away.

I'm still in the process of reading the books, which went in a different path from the HBO series. Some readers weren't pleased with this. I find it refreshing in a way. Sure, it would have been nice to see the exact world and storylines from the books. But then again, some books I prefer left to my imagination.

All in all, I definitely enjoyed the journey of True Blood and am sad to see it end.  In the words of the theme song, "When you came in, the air went out." True Blood, when you ended, it did the same thing.
