HALLOWEEN CONTEST – Who Believes in the Paranormal?


Halloween. Just around the corner. Enticing us with parties, pumpkins…and killer clowns. Oh, and the Halloween Sale of Blood Dragons. Only 0.99… I’d make a spooky price joke here but…I’m still caught up on the clown thought. Blame reading It at too tender an age.

I also opened the Official Bloody Halloweenfest on Friday, kicking off three days of contests, reveals, giveaways, excerpts and dark fun. Have a look here

believe-braceletI held a Halloween Contest to win a handcrafted BELIEVE bracelet. Entrants had to answer this: Mulder always wanted to believe… On Halloween, in what do you want to believe? Vampires or werewolves? Witches… or kick-ass superpowers to take on the undead? What do you believe – all right, wish, walks the same streets as us humans?

I was blown away by the answers – insightful, funny and passionate about the paranormal… Yeah, I struggled to pick a winner.

It looks like we want to believe in vampires, werewolves, shifters, witches, magic and the thin veil dividing our worlds… to mention just a few. Read the brilliant responses here

And the winner? The handcrafted BELIEVE BRACELET goes to: Veronica Vasquez

Here’s what Veronica believed in…

‘Witches, vampires, werewolves, dragons, shifters, fae, and all sorts of beings that I can’t even imagine! I’d like to believe there is a secret magical world out there, as ours has so many problems, and that one day the magical world and out world will combine and it will heal so many of the problems with society today! I believe!’

Congratulations and respect!

NEW FANTASY RELEASE – Blood Shackles Paperback Is Out Now!

Blank bookcover with clipping path
Buy Here

Fantasy Rebel announces the release of Blood Shackles in paperback. It’s stunning; the dme-and-blood-shackles-3esign of the cover is gorgeous.

As a slave journal, there’s something very immediate, real and thrilling about reading Light’s words in a book. Holding it right there in your hand. It’s a rush. When you try it? You’ll experience an escape into his world…

And there’s nothing like fully…totally…escaping into another world.

It’s a dangerous game to love your slave…

When your whole species is enslaved – and it’s the humans who are acting like the monsters – how far would you go to free your family?

“I truly lblood-shackles-cover-small-avataroved this book: the characters, the plot, the pace… Once you start reading it, you just
cannot put it down. A first class performance from a writer at the very top of her game.” – SLH Reviews

What happens when SPARTACUS meets VAMPIRES? Except the vampires are the slaves… In a divided paranormal London, Light is the rebel vampire of the Blood Lifer world. Since Victorian times he’s hidden in the shadows. But not now. When he’s bought by his alluring Mistress, Light fights to escape. Even if he can’t escape their love. But if he doesn’t, he’ll never solve the conspiracy behind the Blood Club…


Who are these ruthless humans? Who’s their brutal leader? And who betrayed the secret of the Blood Lifer world?


London, Primrose Hill. Grayse is the commanding slaver’s daughter. She buys Light, like he’s a pair of designer shoes. So why does Light feel so drawn to her? Especially when his family is still in chains. Will he risk everything – even his new love – to save them?


Does a chilling conspiracy lie behind it all? A stunning revelation leads Light to an inconceivable truth. To the dark heart of the Blood Club. If he can face his worst terrors, he can save his family and his whole species from slavery.

Maybe he can even save himself.

Fantasy Author Rosemary A Johns

Tonight at 7pm GMT I’m appearing on the Cindy Hurn Show on W4CY Radio. Click here to listen in.

cloud and skyWe’ll be discussing creativity: what it means, who has it, how to get it and how not to lose it. Also – and I reckon this is most important of all – how to be authentic. Maybe this is the root of all creativity. All great writing. It works for me.

On Thursday I appeared on BBC Radio Oxford. I featured on Kat Orman’s show, discussing Blood Dragons: memory, identity and vampires. This is an in depth interview – an investigative look at the ‘story behind the story’. Why I chose to write Blood Dragons. It has moved some readers to contact me. I hope it moves many more. Click here for the full interview.

On 19th September 3pm EST and 8pm GMT I will be appearing on the very cool Douglas Coleman Show. Or that could be with the very cool Douglas Coleman. Either way, we’ll be chatting about the 1960’s, rock ‘n’ roll and why vampires can be for adults. Listen in here. This will be one fun interview.
