Paranormal Perceptions: The World of the Paranormal

This post is to be the first of a new series called Paranormal Perceptions. 

The Paranormal Perceptions series was created to gather some of the most interesting authors that are using paranormal elements in their stories. Every author has their own perceptions and provides their own insight on all things paranormal, ranging from urban legends and paranormal research, to myths and inspirations. This week on the guest series is author of Wolf's Maineauthor Jinni James (@jinnijames)

Who doesn’t love Paranormal Romance? 

I chose to write about Paranormal Romance because I feel a lot of people just love it.  I mean it is the unknown, the fantasy.  Everyone loves the fantasy right? 

I did a lot of research on the internet about shape shifters, werewolves, and vampires but all in all I just wrote about how I wanted each of my characters.  I took in what I read online and incorporated it into my story.  I kind of mixed in the paranormal world within our world instead of creating a different world all together.  I think it makes it a little more relatable. 

My influences for my story come from many different places.  Since I based this story from real life every character and everything that happens is in some way relatable to me.  I did decide to make the vampire the bad guy in my story.  I have read a lot of books lately where the vampire is the good guy, the one the heroine falls in love with but I decided to change it up and make the vampire the bad guy and the shape shifter the one that gets the girl.  I have not read many books like that yet but I do hope to find some. 

Don’t get me wrong I love vampires just as much as the next girl but I wanted a change for my characters.  I loved getting lost in the forbidden world of Paranormal Romance and I think that is why a lot of people love to read it.  It is so different from our everyday lives.  Plus, I am sure a lot of women love to fantasize that there is a world like this out there somewhere.  I loved writing about the Paranormal and I look forward to writing many more.

Avalon felt like her life was set on repeat. Every new day was just like the one before until Avalon's friends talk her into venturing out and leaving her dead end

marriage behind. Little did she know that she would meet her soul mate face to face and that he would ignite a desire in her that she never knew existed. John had been watching over Avalon ever since her parents died when she was three but she

had no clue.

She had only been talking to him online for two years. She slowly learns that there is a whole world and a whole story she had not known about involving every one she knows and cares for. Her husband Nicholas is not the man she thought him to be, if he is a man at all and John seems to be more than he lets on as well.

Avalon soon discovers the hidden truths but can she handle it? With Nicholas seeking vengeance can John and her friends help her?
