The first Sunday of the new year is almost over, and it is time for us to check in with our book!
I know that we had a slow start, but I hope that everyone has had a chance to pick up Mark of the Demon!
I thought that I would open up our chats with a discussion about place. A great number of my friends are in New Orleans these past two weeks. Some for a wedding, some for a birthday party. We were talking about stories set in the heart of Voodoo country, New Orleans.
I think that Louisiana has such a wealth of dark corners, deep mysteries, secrets that no one knows, that it almost automatically makes for a great setting. My friend thought that New Orleans as a place has been over used.
While Mark of the Demon takes place in Beauluc, Louisiana and not New Orleans, I wondered if you readers had the same reaction to it? Are we tired of seeing stories set in the swamp lands of the Deep South or are we still intrigued- are the twisted, narrow streets of Louisiana, the swamps, the alligators, the voodoo curses, and the demon summoners enough to hold our interest?
While Mark of the Demon has a certain “could be anywhere” sort of storyline, I thought that it was very interesting that Diana Rowland chose to place her story there. And then to not set it in New Orleans was also an interesting choice.
What do you all think?
We can also open up to any other discussion about the story! Let’s start talking about it! What are your thoughts on the Symbol Man?
Let’s try to catch up with each other here on the main page for Urban Fantasy Magazine. Come talk books with me!
A reminder! Next month, we will dive into Dirty Magic by Jaye Wells!
I am just trying to get an idea of how far along we all might be in Mark of the Demon.
I know that we got a late start, so I am contemplating making this book a December/January book.
Let me know what you think, where you are in the book, if you are still waiting for Amazon to get it to you…
Please leave a comment at either our Facebook Page for the Book Club or at the post on the regular Urban Fantasy Magazine blog page, in the comments.
Welcome to Urban Fantasy Magazine’s brand new book club!
We’ll officially be up and running in December! Welcome aboard!
Our first book is Mark of The Demon by Diana Rowland. I think that you’ll like it.
Newly minted Violent Crimes and Homicide detective Kara Gillian has more on her plate than every day bad guys; the Symbol Man might have returned to Beauluc, Louisianna. As if that wasn’t trouble enough, Kara has just summoned a Demon she has no idea how to handle.
Did I not mention that?
Kara has one heck of a family trait, she’s a Demon Summoner. I’m sure things are about to get very interesting.
Pick up the book and dive on in, it is a great read for these cooling nights. I’m pretty sure it will keep you warm.
If you have any questions about how things work, who I am, who we are, feel free to chime in. For right now, the best way for us to start communicating is through our FaceBook page (Urban Fantasy Book Club!) though we can also leave comments on the Urban Fantasy Magazine Blog. We’ll learn together what works best. I’ll send out a full introduction to Mark of The Demon the first week of December, close to the release of Urban Fantasy Magazine and we’ll check back in at the end of Chapter 7 around the 7th of December.
By the way. As we move along, I’ll have a schedule available so you can see which book is scheduled for which month!
See you soon!
