Thoughts on the first Charmed trailer. Show set for CW Fall

Piper Charmed episode 1 season 4

I had watery eyes re-watching this episode at the gym in the morning.

The 1st episode of the 4th season of Charmed was on at the gym Monday morning, and watching Piper trying to bring back her sister almost had me in tears. It was 7am and I was tried, but that’s when I realized that I’m far too emotionally invested in the characters that I watched for 8 seasons.

Some viewers don’t want new characters in the reboot by the CW, airing in the fall, but I’d hate to say it, new issues, technology, and social climates evolve in new decades, and the first Charmed was twenty years ago.  Disagree with me all you want, but it’s time. Some people (The CW) got slack for saying the new Charmed is more “feminist,” which probably wasn’t the best thing to declare when the original was about a matriarchy.

Feminism is changing, just like everything else (The dictionary changes every decade), and it doesn’t mean that the original Charmed wasn’t feminist.

Of course, we all want to see the original sisters back, but we did have 8 long seasons with them that a new series will not erase.

Viewers were plenty vocal in the original series when the character Prue left and Paige was added. I remember a message board post from back in the day that said, “bring back pure,” but my God, did the writers do a fantastic job with Paige. It’s the job I wish Joss Whedon would have done with Buffy Summers.

In the reboot with new characters, Macy, Mel, and Maggie are Charmed ones. Here is the long trailer:

My initial thoughts: Right away, the setting of a Victorian manor is established, mom is too good to be true, and they press they sisterhood off the bat. And do I NOT trust the Brit “Advisor.”

What I’m excited about:

Mel’s freezing time powers are stronger than Piper’s ever were (unless an angel of destiny has shown up) and Maggie’s telepathy has some kind of force field.  Was someone born on a Nexus?

What happened to The Elders? Did it get played out and that’s why we have “advisors,” or is there a crazy plot coming up where whitelighters are extinct? I am hoping for the later! “Guardian Angel,” and “advisor,” carry entirely different connotations.

The college town setting means an awesome coming of age story. This is very new adult to me, how about you?

My predictions:

  • People will keep bitching. That’s life.
  • The “advisor” will be the least favorite character. I’m actually not looking forward to him at all.
  • Open-minded viewers will get the most out of this and pick up on nods to the original Charmed.

I can’t knock the new series until I give it a chance. See you guys again this fall!

What I wish my friends with and without kids understood about each other

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This post is for people with completely different lifestyles and those who have just crossed over into the role of parenthood, the never-ending job that you will never retire from. Some of your friends don’t have your lifestyle, but should you try to understand each other? Absolutely.

withvswithoutkids.png

I’m writing this to talk about the buzzword Mommyjacking. I’m reminding humans on both sides to take a step back and appreciate the family or friendship they’ve always had.

Half of me is like, “No, this post is not directed towards you!” and the other half of me is like, “This is for you and people can understand you better than you think, and you’re not alone!”

So what is mommyjacking according to the internet?

 

This post is sparked when from out of nowhere, a family member is describing their day to a group of us, looks at me, and says, “Imagine trying to sit down and write your book and a toddler interrupts you every 30 seconds.”

Out of nowhere.

I interact with children now, though there weren’t a lot in my family growing up. I’m used to talking with friends who get distracted by their kid and come back to the conversation. It’s no big deal and kids interrupt. The amazing thing about them is that you can see them learning every time they do. I like to think of them as scientists. I just saw a tweet from Neil deGrasse Tyson about this, so i might have gotten it from him years ago. I confess. There it is.

I think what Moms don’t know, is that we appreciate what you do to take care of your kids! People without them would be naive to think it’s an easy job, and yeah, some people are naive. I promise though, that most of your friends won’t be.

Other conversations I’ve heard or have been a part of have gone like this:

“Just wait until you have kids.”

“You drank a bunch of water and had to pee 5 times this morning. Now you know what it’s like to be pregnant!”

“You were in the waiting room for your husband’s surgery? That’s nothing. It’s completely different when it’s your kid is gettting surgery.”

What mom’s need to know is that their friends without kids:

  • We have most likely worked in a demanding job and have been in charge of complicated tasks with distractions.
  • We don’t work well without an adequate amount of sleep either.
  • We have human empathy, and can fully understand when you say it breaks your heart to see your child not feel well.
  • We are capable of LOVING others even if we don’t have kids. Our families, friends, significant others, and even pets, will not rank higher than a child. When we love someone there are no exceptions as to whether or not we made them. It’s like saying an adopted child wouldn’t be as loved as a child born naturally to you. We can love people who don’t share our blood.
  • We take you seriously.
  • We are happy that you care so much about your kid!

 

What people without kids USUALLY understand about moms:

  • Your responsible friends: Will understand your kids come first.
  • Your hard-working friends: WIll understand the distractions of a day on your job.
  • Your kind friends: Will understand that you love your child with all of your heart!

 

In summary, if you feel the need to Mommy-jack, you probably aren’t hanging out with the right people. Surround yourself with the empathetic and kind, and the friends who won’t mind if you don’t text back for 48 hours! Empathy is key here, and just because we are in different stages of life, it doesn’t mean we can’t relate to each other.

 

 

 

 

An author’s tale: Hunter’s Moon in the A Guide To Claiming a Scaredy Cat Anthology.

I was asked in a public post in a call for writers. The organizers Josette Reuel and S.E. Isacc were looking for authors for a shifter anthology of short stories. I jumped at the challenge because:

  1. I am addicted to backstory, so short stories have always been a challenge for me, even in school where they teach you how to write them.
  2. I don’t write about shifters all that often, so it would be a fun way to think outside of the box.

 

What I found was a helpful community of authors in the Scardey Cat Anthology, who supported me with social media tasks and words of encouragement. That was awesome because I was finishing up The Lost Years and The Hallowed Locus at the time, and the beginning of this year has been the most sacrificial yet (concerning time, friends and family). I kept my sanity because of those authors and my readers!

Wounded Warrior ProjectWounded Warrior Project(WWP) is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001. It operates as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

 

Why this story is different than the rest of my work:

  1. It’s all in the present tense. This makes for a fast, in-the-moment read that is designed to be a page-turner.
  2. My protagonist is different from many of my other main characters because of her pride. She doesn’t get embarrassed. She doesn’t apologize. But like my other work, she is inclined to do the right thing when she can get the other obstacles out of the way. Autumn is 33 years old, a little disenchanted by life, but ready to challenge the beliefs she was raised on.
  3. It is a fundraising anthology that supports The Wounded Warrior Project!

Thank you for reading and supporting Hunter’s Moon. It was a wonderful project that took me outside the box!

What are you up to with this dual POV thing, Romarin?

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Allow me to explain!

I started outlining a book series, and it became clear to me that these characters needed 10 books, and that it was going to be the perfect situation to write a coming-of-age story while characters are figuring out their careers and lives, and magic. I wanted to take what I learned in the past eight years, hundreds of thousands of words later and make a book that not only told two stories, but also encompassed other genres (suspense, murder mystery, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, metaphysical) and was the kind of long book (estimated around 500 pages) I wanted to read when I was a young adult.

So I started writing, and I started outlining (in the beginning I used to just let the words flow), and I made a highly organized chapter checklist to make sure it would hold interest and offer clues and really showcase qualities of characters who feel like real people. I set out to write paranormal romance, because it’s a wider genre that many people are interested in, and readers are looking for an emphasis on romance.

I know my dual POV is risky when my characters aren’t romantically linked (they were raised as sisters) but it’s so cool to see how they interact with each other. Even people who don’t keep a handful of friends have 1 close friend and think they can relate.

 

Paranormal romance is also risky lately with books being shadow-banned and seller status being stripped because they are too graphic with romance.

No matter the risk, I cannot stop writing. It’s a compulsion, and I’m too far in and have gained too much experience to quit. Unfortunately, I can’t make the decision as to whether or not this can be my career–only someone living in an apartment that overlooks Jersey can. The reality is that I am exhausted, and I know what is stacked against me… but I am doing my best to get the word out and put my book on Kindle Scout in July.

I am really hoping you’ll give my dual POVs a chance!

Who needs magic school when there’s magic work study? Welcome to the London Coven—if you can make it to induction.

Two highly coveted vacancies have just opened up in the London Coven, under what appears to be supernaturally suspicious circumstance. Witch hopefuls, Helaine and Rose, are forced to go from best friends to rivals. One must leave the other behind for a decade of secrecy: one that’s sure to be full of self-discovery, scandalous love affairs, and life-or-death danger, all happening on the front page of the newspaper, feeding the gossips and trolls of the underground.  Little do they know, the battle against each other is just the first trial. When tragedy strikes the witch community, things get personal—more intimate than a mentor who doesn’t know his boundaries—and more delicate than the insurmountable guilt that plagues the Coven’s newest initiate member. Someone is burning through witches, and the Coven themselves could be next. A smart witch counts on her friends to get by, but when powers go awry, untamable passion can be even more dangerous than a witch hunter.

The moment readers have been waiting for is here.

The gaps in time left by “Wanions of the Wicked” will bridge the way for the new paranormal book series in books 4-6 of The Supernatural London Underground.

This book is a huge thank you to readers of the series. You have read and reviewed years of my life and time, and that makes you AMAZING!

The Lost Years:

“What’s in the dark, dark box?”
“Answers,” he said slyly, “ones to the life you lived before.”

When the donor blood that saved her life starts rejecting, Romarin is left with two choices—drink or die. With her old friends silent about the past, she can only rely on clues from her reluctant mentor as she learns that answers and secrets are the same thing. Can Romarin balance being a Bathory with attending University, while dealing with the bombshell of her biological father being brought into her life? Well… It couldn’t be any easier than getting the opportunity to compare scars with a stranger who doesn’t know if he’s a hero or a thief.

Hairstyling fails in Young Adult book to movie adaptations. 3 pleas for better hair and makeup.

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

I am always paying attention to hair and how it crosses from book to screen. This is a fun blog entry. Quite simply, sometimes hair isn’t a good job done.

I’m not talking how I thought Hermione from Harry Potter had black hair when I read the books. I am talking about subpar wigs and hair and makeup on characters who wouldn’t have access to it.

This is my plea to makeup, costume, and budget designers of Hollywood.

Plea #1 You can dye hair to make it look more natural. Really.

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games is naturally a blonde? Out in the forest and in her home district, Katniss has brown hair and blonde eyebrows. We get that she has no access to makeup until the Hunger Games, but how is it that she can dye her hair brown without hair dye? The stark contrast to her penciled on eyebrows later makes this stand out. If her eyebrows are blonde and her hair is dark, it must mean she has access to hair dye, right?

katniss eyebros

Stylist alternative: tint the eyebrows so they are brown. It’s a simple fix.

Plea #2. Stop using makeup where makeup isn’t accessible.

I really only need to give you this still of Beatrice Prior from Divergent:

abenation

Even though you want actresses to look beautiful, most of them don’t need to much help from makeup, and there are ways to apply makeup to make it look natural.

Stylist alternative: tint the eyelashes to make them dark. Not only would Beatrice not have access to mascara, she wouldn’t care to apply it being in abnegation.  With makeup, use lighter and darker skintone shades to naturally contour (we all know what that is these days) instead of shimmer and pinks. You can also fill in eyebrows to create symmetry without going overboard.

Please #3 Give a man a full wig!

Mens’ wigs get me more than anything. My dislike for men’s wigs started when I first noticed Dimitri’s hair from Vampire Academy. I know long hair may be a big part of his character, however, I would have made the decision to keep it short as to not add a ridiculous half-wig to the movie. You can tell where the wig ends and the real hair starts in the pictures below. The nape of the neck is clearly the natural hair. I would have opted for a full lace wig to give him a hairline near the nape of the neck and also by the sideburns. The only place this wig looks natural at is the top, and this hairpiece was more unsettling than when Rose yelled, “Hey, Gap kids!” Gap kids?

Cameron in Fallen also had a questionable hairpiece. Hair is not cut out around the ears when you have a long hairstyle. You can see that his hair is cut out around he ear in the bottom right picture. Again, men need length at the nape of the neck and sideburns. The absence of thick hair over the ears is a mistake. The ponytails in both of these cases make everything worse and more noticeable. Notice the bumps on the back of their heads when both their hair is put in ponytails? Natural hair does not leave a bump when put into a pony.

Stylist alternative: Give men full wigs to their hair looks full, or create a character that diverges from the book.

There you have it! My favorite suggestions for makeup, costume, and budget designers of Hollywood. I hope you enjoyed this fun post!

Things are about to get dark as we wish Nikki Rae a happy release day! She’s branching out into the new genre of dark romance. Congratulations, Nikki!

 

 

Given to The Grimm Order as an infant, Fawn was raised in a world shaped by the rich and powerful. When she was sold at the age of nine to a Suitor, Fawn believed he would protect her from the “Mainworld”, where those who know nothing about the Order live. Living with the cruel man who bought her freedom, she finds just what the Order is about: money, control, and status for the Owner and humiliation and abuse for those they own. 


Unwilling to accept the expectations of being Owned, Fawn goes from golden girl to maid, content to live in the shadows of the Order as long as she isn’t Owned again.
It’s been ten years since she disgraced her former Owner’s name, and now the brooding Frenchman Elliot Lyon wants her. Master Lyon is kind, smart, and unlike any man she’s met. She doesn’t want to admit it to herself, but Fawn is drawn to him despite constantly planning her next escape. 


Even the prettiest flowers have thorns, and Master Lyon is hiding secrets that will uproot everything she thinks she knows about him.

Excerpt:

I didn’t allow myself dreams. They were unrealistic and unfair. Cruel. There was enough cruelty in my life; I didn’t need to inflict it upon myself. It was difficult at first, telling my brain to shut off so completely that even when I wasn’t in control of it I could rely on the images within to be shrouded in black. They say everyone dreams and they just don’t remember. I don’t think my mind is capable of conjuring up images—nightmares or pleasant dreams. Not anymore. Reality was a nightmare. Dreams didn’t come true. Once you knew that things couldn’t get any better and that things were and will be the scariest you could ever experience, the imagination simply died. So instead of dreaming, I planned.

Author Bio:

Nikki Rae is an independent author who lives in New Jersey. She explores human nature through fiction, concentrating on making the imaginary as real as possible. Her genres of choice are mainly dark, scary, romantic tales, but she’ll try anything once. When she is not writing, reading, or thinking, you can find her spending time with animals, drawing in a quiet corner, or studying people. Closely.
