Contest Giveaway

I'm holding a contest this week to give away a copy of Demon's Torment. Entering is easy. I want to know who or what your favorite paranormal character is. Be as general or as specific as you want. Leave a comment telling me all about it. My personal favorites are vampires. I specifically enjoy Stephanie Meyer's take on vampires, as well as Tanya Huff's. Interesting fact: I'm not even halfway through writing my own vampire novel: demons, the devil, and a restless spirit have all demanded my attention first. But I want to know what readers think. I'll randomly choose one entrant at the end of the week so get your answers in no later than midnight (central time) on Saturday, July 5th.

hmmm Favorite Paranormal Character? Angeni - she's a shifter and she's a spider - makes for some very interesting twists.

Bianca D'Arc's Dragon Knights characters, especially Tor, an ice dragon.

The first thing that came to mind was Lora Leigh's Breeds because they struggle with their natures but can't actually shift and let it out. But I'm not sure that they can really be classed as paranormal as they're scientific constructs.
So the others that strike me are the vampires from Susan Sizemore's Laws of the Blood series because they're not the love-dovey vamps that most seem to be these days.

Hi Rachel,

My fav paranormal character is Rachel Morgan from Kim Harrison's "Dead Witch Walking"
series. Rachel is a kick ass character but she also has self esteem issues and lots of problems with her love life, just like us mere mortals. Plus she has a great first name; LOL.

I can't say that I have a specific favorite, but I do love Amanda Ashley's brooding vampire heroes and Christine Feehan's Carpathian Warriors. What can I say, I adore gorgeous men who want to bite my neck!!

These are all good answers so far. I can't wait to go searching for some of these books.

My favorite type of paranormal story usually involves shapeshifters of some kind-whether they be bear/cat/wolf/or any other animal.

Hmm, not a big reader of paranormal but the ones I have read are all ghosts. I don't know what it is about the image of a sexy, half naked ghost that just sends shivers up my spine.
