Guest Blog/Giveaway with Stephanie Julian

Today I'm happy to welcome Stephanie Julian to my blog. She is the author of Size Matters, Edge of Moonlight & Seduced by Magic.

How do you make Bigfoot sexy?

That was the question I had to ask myself when I first got the idea for “Size Matters.”

I mean, everyone knows Bigfoot is a huge, hairy, ape-like creature that stalks the North American forests, taunting cryptozoologists and providing beef jerky makers with an amusing foil for their commercials.

But…what if he’s not?

What if he’s an almost seven-foot hunk of a man with gorgeous hair? A great guy with a great smile who rescues our intrepid heroine after she crashes her car into a tree during a snowstorm?

Sure, he has secrets. What gorgeous guy doesn’t?

But he doesn’t live in a vacuum. He’s got his own community. The Fringe community.

So who belongs to this community?

Well, you’ve definitely heard of the people who populate the Fringe, but I’m pretty sure you’ve never met them.

They’re kind of elusive. They are myths, after all.

The Loch Ness Monster? She doesn’t like to leave Scotland but she has been known to vacation in Illinois.

El Chupacabra? I wouldn’t invite him to your next party. He’s not much for table manners. Fairies have a taste for blood and a wicked sense of humor.

Dragons aren’t exactly the huge, winged creatures of lore. They actually have a bit of a Napoleon complex.

And Bigfoot and his Nepalese cousin, the Yeti, are nothing like you imagine.

Carrie Benson imagines a lot of things as a reporter for the Weekly News Journal, mostly about all those mythical creatures. She’s a believer only if you show her the proof.

When Carrie meets Tim Sattazahn, she’s not expecting to find that proof.

And she’s definitely not expecting it to be so damn sexy…

Out Now

Carrie Benton's got the best job in the world working as a reporter for the Weekly News Journal. Chupacabra picnicking at the Jersey shore? Check. Aliens in the White House? Absolutely. Bigfoot stalking the forests of northern Pennsylvania? Well, okay... but Bigfoot is so Left Coast.

Tim Sattazahn can't believe his luck. The six-foot redhead who crashed into his forest during a snowstorm is gorgeous, funny and hot for him. Everything would be perfect except for the fact that she's looking for Bigfoot.

And, unfortunately for Tim, she's found him...

Available at Ellora's Cave

Stephanie is offering one lucky winner the choice of any of her ebook titles. Open to everyone. The winner will be announced on September September 25th. Good Luck!

  16. I can't wait to read this book. And there will be a Nessie story also? How fun.

    This reminds me of a short story that I read about a scientist who captured the Jersey Devil to study it but it turned out that there were actually two of them - they were twins, I think - and they had the maturity of two year olds, so he hired a nanny, who promptly fell in love with him.....well, you get the drift. It was a cute story and at the time, I thought it was very inventive of the author to base her story on an urban legend like that.

  17. hello Meredith and thanks for taking the time read.

  18. This comment has been removed by the author.

  19. that story sounds really cute, Jen, thanks for stopping.

  20. Such fun to encounter characters that are rooted in legend. They give us plenty of room to dream, invent, create, and to expand on all the good stuff of which fiction is made. Loved the interview and am looking forward to the book(s). Please enter me in the drawing.

  21. Oh, I'm ready to start reading it now!
