Wanted Button

Thanks to Kristilyn for designing the button!

Have you ever wished you could find that one book that was about _____? Have you ever found yourself wondering what a book with a certain kind of theme or message would be like? That’s exactly what “Wanted” is all about. A semi-regular feature, I use “Wanted” to talk about all those books I wish I could find that nobody seems to have written yet. If you happen to know of some books that fit my criteria, I would love for you to send them my way through the comments!

One of the nice things about paranormal books in recent years is they’ve started diversifying – there’s a YA paranormal on just about any paranormal creature out there (although not quite: I’m still looking for some Elves and some Unusual Shifters). But one kind of paranormal that I would love to see more is the death myth paranormal. Every culture and religion has its own version of what happens when we die, and many of them could be turned into some incredible paranormal novels – in fact a few already have! Take, for example, Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson, the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, or on a less culturally specific note Croak and Scorch by Gina Damico. I would love to see more paranormal novels exploring the lesser known death myths!

  1. Oh yes, now that I think about it there are a very limited number of books about that. I think I’ve only ever read Soul Screamer series and Inbetween by Tara Fuller.
