Meet Denise Verrico in our Host Apprciation Feature

Please say hello to Denise.  She runs Immortyl Revolution and has been a host with us since the beginning.  Denise is a big fan of paranormal/fantasy and sci-fi.  She is also the author of Cara Mia and Twilight of the Gods.  Stop into her blog and see her latest interviews,  contests and upcoming news as well.

1.  What do you love most about blogging? 

It’s given me the chance to meet so many fellow authors and to give them the opportunity to share information about their books.

2.  Do you have a most memorable post? 

My first.  I really enjoyed hosting my friend, Linda Robertson, author of the Persephone Alcemedi series.  We talked about her second novel Hallowed Circle.  She’s a great gal and lots of fun.

3.  What is the funniest thing you have ever blogged about? 

A new writer in my critique group read a passage from my third novel in which the POV character is a male vampire courtesan.  Without meeting me, he thought that a gay man wrote the chapter.  I had to laugh that since I’m a heterosexual woman.  Actually, I took the comment as high praise.  When I told the anecdote to a good friend of mine he said, “Well, almost.”  I just had to share all of that.

4.  What do you hope your readers will take away from your blog?

The blog is evolving.  I recently took some time off to get ready to launch my second book, but will be back in full swing come January.  My mission is to help other authors to promote their books and share information with fans and aspiring authors.

5.Where do you hope to take your blog in the future?

I plan to start posting more about the craft of writing, more humorous stuff and offer links to helpful sites.

6. Do you ever have contests and/or giveaways on your blog?

Yes, when authors do interviews on my site, I offer them the opportunity to sponsor a giveaway. From September 28th through November 2nd, I’m holding a giveaway contest to celebrate the launch of my novel. Twilight of the Gods, Book Two of the Immortyl Revolution.  I’ll be giving away copies of both of the novels in the series and other merchandise.

7.  In your opinion, how would readers,  old and new,  benefit from your blog? 

They will have a chance to hear about new authors and books.

8. Anything you would like to share, thoughts, events, etc?

I’m going to be on a Twilight of the Gods blog tour September 21st through mid December.  I’ll be doing some bookstore and library signings and appearing in October at A Mystical Day of Bloodlust in Lexington, Kentucky and The World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, OH.

Thank you for stopping in Denise and letting us get to know you better :).  I appreciate all you do and keep up the great work.
