Not a ‘Green’ Gage: Author speaks

GAGE Cover scaled - Not a 'Green' Gage: Author speaks
Gage runs the L’Griffe, AKA the dragon shifter mafia on Earth. Since the human realm has no supernatural police, the L’Griffe do more than loan money or sell contraband. When it comes to dragon shifters, the L’Griffe are the law. And Gage isn’t the only sheriff in town, either. Other secret groups have their own gangs, including ghouls, demons, and everything in between. It’s an awkward balance, but it works. Until the demons consolidate into…

* This is a completed series.

Perfect for teen and young adult readers who want their book series to deliver: badass world building, angels, demons, paranormal romance, fresh themes from contemporary fiction, LOL romantic comedy, gods and goddesses, dark fantasy, strong girls and women as heroines, themes about loners and outcasts, the best laughs in humorous literature, general coming of age whackery, and (most importantly) truly unusual epic fantasy.

Christine Speaks:

  • What’s your latest book?
    >>>I am currently on the launch tour for
    GAGE, Book 8 in my Angelbound Offspring series. Paranormal fun with dragons. Woot!
  • What about ‘snark’? is it good or bad?
    >>> Snark is a sign of a higher life form. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
  • Is it easy to write humour?
    >>>I love writing humor. Although, I recently learned that girls aren’t supposed to be funny. The things you miss by going to an all-girl’s school!
  •   if you could be an animal which animal would you be?
    >>>My spirit animal is Winston Churchill. First of all, the man is brilliant in his use of language. Second, he has grit. The guy waited for years until the world caught up with him about Hitler. Third, Churchill wore the kind of onesies that were popular with gas station attendants in the 1950’s… and made it work for him.
  • How many ‘packs’ should a hero have? Are 8 too many and what might a character lick off them? Why?
    >>>Damn, I am way behind on the packs thing. I’m more of a ‘v muscle going under the waistband of your jeans’ type of girl. Something to work toward!
  • What music inspires you? And which instrument is best for which scenes?
    >>>Lately, I’ve been listening to movie scores. If you want to write a kick-ass scene, play Gladiator!
  • Some academics etc claim that there are only 7 archetypal stories in all writing. Do you agree? If not, please explain and give examples of other story archetypes that you have used.
    >>>For me, it’s not about the archetypal story, it’s about the journey your character takes. In this sense, I love the awesome journeys couples take AFTER falling in love. There’s a lot to mine here and few pay attention!

AUTHOR BIO:

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. 

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

Let’s have a fight: Book Review

MackTourBanner 1 e1632325037645 - Let's have a fight: Book Review
Whilst I really like this series, I just wish that the books were longer.

As the series has developed the books have become shorter, and whilst I realise that they were originally (perhaps) and certainly now, aimed at a much younger audience, and the concept is that they don’t like to read long stories, I would take issue with that. After all, Harry Potter books are long. And 12 year olds and younger read them. So why assume the stories need to be short – and thus missing a great deal of possible character and storyline development.

And this is where I think this book lacks something.

The characters have been established, and the drawings are stunning so you can imagine the characters in their full glory – though I do think the costume on our heroine lacks a bit – of material – to protect her skin. Despite the dragon scales, it would  be nice for more leather on her legs surely?

But the end of the story seems a bit like -with one leap they were free’. As though Christine couldn’t think of what to say. Perhaps the series has run out of steam?  I shall read to the end of the series, just because, but I am not giving 5, nor even 4 for this series now, it is down to 3 and if I hadn’t been a loyal reader …

Sorry Christine. But I can give you a star for the artwork.

More and now Dragons

rhodes - More and now Dragons

This is the latest in the spin-off series from AngelBound. These tell the stories of the children and grandchildren of our original hero and heroine and more about the different species that inhabit their worlds.

Here we have 2 dragons – including one who cannot breathe fire. She and her sister are in a tower, guarded from the world, because there have been threats against them. The threats come from followers of the old Emperor who had been defeated in a previous story.

My main issue with this book is that as these stories continue to be written, the age range (apart from one scene in this book) seems to get younger. This means the stories are shorter and more simplistic than the original series. In my mind this is a shame but …
