APOLOGIES, Marshall. The Medium HAS the Message.

Okay, continuing on from yesterday's "MEDIUM" posting.

Sigh. Theresa Caputo. Why do you bring out the whacko-s?

Anyway, a few of the readers pointed to this guy, and I didn't even know about this guy, but apparently you do. His name is Matt Fraser and he managed to gob-snack a couple of news anchors on this show.

There was a celebrity interviewer decades back, who would gob-smack his interviewee's because he did tons of research before they came on the show. He'd have his people call the guest's mother, that sort of thing. So I'm not saying it doesn't happen in the medium business. I'm also not saying that it does. See that, I'm deflecting.

I know I used to like Sylvia Browne until I read a couple of her books. It was the one about death. And the doors. Symbolism or The Price Is Right? I'm still not quite sure.

Who's your fave medium and why?

Wednesday, September 28, 2016


I used to belong to a paranormal facebook group here in Vancouver until I got kicked out. .I know, right? I don't get it either.

Anyway...we used to get into good discussions about TLC's Long Island Medium. By good, I mean most people on the forum hated her, called her a fraud, pointed to Radar.Online's scathing reviews of her and the list goes on. Some guy on the internet named Randy Tebo REALLY hates her. But I like her.

I don't know if Theresa Caputo is any of those things, or maybe all of those things, but I do think she's entertaining. And I get that people pay a lot of money to see her. And if she kept coming back for more from those same people, then I would lean towards the nay-sayers and say shame on you for exploiting human beings that are in pain.. But as far as I know, she doesn't leech on to anyone for ever and ever, and most arena events cost the same thing no matter what you're going to see. It's your two hours, spend the money for the ticket the way you want. It's still cheaper than a lawyer or ongoing therapy. (See the picture below? I've made it 'medium' sized. Some days I can't control myself.)  I want her hair. I want her nails. Oh let's be honest, I want her money and I want her gig.

Now, I have to confess that I have never been to a medium per se. Sure, I've done some Psychic's at a fair, that kind of thing, but I have never actually sat down with one for an in-depth reading. I'm a big fat chicken shit.  Have you? If you have, I'd love to hear about it. Or if you are a medium, I'd like to interview you...and you can interview me.
PM me. You too, Theresa. You, Larry and the kids can come for dinner anytime.

SPOTLIGHT ON: LUCKY BLOW by Amanda Washington

Well, here we are, almost at the end of the month and yet there is so much to talk about. First of all, if you haven't been over to the Bewitching Book Tours page to check out the Haunted Halloween Spectacular, you really should. Go here for more information
Today we're going to focus on a new book by Amanda Washington called  LUCKY BLOW. It falls into the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Genre.
Here's a description for you:
Thanks to the deities in her family tree, Romi has been enslaved to a life of larceny since birth. Well, except for that one night, four years ago, when the goddess of love and debauchery sprang her from her prison, slipped her some sort of magical roofie, and introduced her to an irresistible blacksmith for a little tryst resulting in a child. So when two powerful gods show up and offer her a way out of her thieving lifestyle for good, she jumps at the opportunity. All she has to do is blow on a magical sword and imbue it with luck.
Then she can finally find that guy she’s been dreaming about and introduce him to their son. If only she knew the blacksmith’s name…
But when the same gods use the sword to rip Zeus’s essence from his body, Romi’s son is kidnapped and held for ransom. Now Romi, her mysterious fling, and her teenage griffin babysitter have to steal back Zeus’s essence from a cast of powerful gods, or they’ll lose the child forever.
Sounds like Romi had her work cut out for her, non? You can go to one of these websites for your copy.

GOTHAM: Season Three Premiere

It's a quandary. Is Gotham supernatural or not? They try pretty hard to find chemical reasons for all the evil going on, and I guess nobody's allergic to kryptonite (yet), but it's certainly creepy and borderline supernatural, so what the hell.

One of my favorite things about this series is the look. I think the art directions are fabulous although to be truthful I couldn't quite figure out what era it was supposed to be in during the first season. It was a little Dick Tracey-ish, non?
The love of Jim Gordon's life is now gone but there's a possible new love interest in Reporter Valerie Vale because of course broken-hearted Jim has taken a disliking to her.
Psycho-ex Barbara and her on-again-off-again girlfriend Tabitha have opened their own club and are either being shaken down or doing the shaking down. Fish Mooney is back, although she's lost her charm after season one. Wondered for about 30 seconds where they were going with the Bruce Wayne clone but uh, that's kind of obvious. The Penguin still rocks, and it's always a treat to see Selena. Kind of wondering about Ivy though...
This show dances on the edge of outrageous and silly, and it's best when it's on the WTF side. What do you think?

DAMNED IF HE DOES by Marcella Burnard

The mornings are getting darker, the days are getting shorter, what better time to hanker down and do a little reading in front of a fire. If you have a fire. Or maybe you want a fire but that could mean a whole lot of things and we'd better not get into that here. But it's hard not to, when we've got books like this getting us all sizzled up.

 I know you'd like to know what Marcella's book is about, so here's the lo-down:
Rejected by heaven, twisted by hell, what’s a damned dead man to do when he stumbles upon a life and love worth fighting for?

Though damned for his earthly sins, Darsorin Incarri likes being an incubus. Prowling women’s dreams to siphon off their sexual energy for Satan's consumption has its perks: an array of infernal power and a modicum of freedom. Sure, Ole Scratch holds Dar’s soul in thrall, and Dar has to spend a few hours recharging in Hell every day, but it could be much worse. All he has to do is hold up his end of his damnation contract – five women seduced, satisfied and siphoned per night for eternity. So when he encounters gorgeous, bright, and funny Fiona Renee, it’s business as usual. Deploy the infernal charm and rack up another score. Except it doesn’t work. She’s immune. He has to find out what’s gone wrong or face Lucifer's wrath.
Fiona Renee has the life she’d always wanted: a career, a home, a cat with a bad attitude, and peace. Fiona’s dated. Had boyfriends. And hated every minute of it. She’s reconciled to being lonely. So when a man shows up in her bedroom in the middle of the night demanding to know why her dreams turn to nightmares every time he tries to seduce her from within them, Fiona winds up negotiating a contract with a demon that allows him access to her life. She never anticipated that it would also give him access to her heart. If she's going to fall in love at all, something she never thought would happen, shouldn’t it be with someone who’s alive? If Fiona wants to hang on to Darsorin, she has to find his true name—the one he’d been given at his birth over a thousand years ago. But Satan, himself, stands in her way. Even if Fiona can dodge Lucifer, she and Darsorin have to face the question neither of them can answer: What happens to a dead man if you manage to wrest his soul from the Devil?

We here at Supernatural Central are wondering if there's such a thing as a cat without a bad attitude. We wonder about a lot of things.

Marcella dropped by Supernatural Central to answer a few questions for us. (Sorry about the weird spacing here, Blogger is giving me grief today. Scroll down.)

SC:. Tell me a little bit about your main character in this book.

MB: Damned If He Does is really Darsorin Incarri's book. He's been dead and damned for a thousand years. While he likes being an incubus, getting to seduce women in their dreams, he's wondered for all that time why he was damned for lechery when his best friend (who'd seduced as many, if not more, women in life than Darsorin had) wasn't. When the story opens, Darsorin is a demon who has it all - the Devil's favor, a coveted position as an incubus, and the freedom to wander the world. He has just one sore spot - he's lonely. Not that he'd admit it. All he knows is that mortals can't look him in the eye - don't really seem to want to see him at all except as a means to assuage unfulfilled desires. After all this time, it takes meeting a pharmacist named Fiona who seems immune to his powers as an incubus to make him realize that he's being used. Falling for her when he cannot possibly have her, drives him to look for a loophole in his contract with Hell.
SC:  Do you believe in the paranormal and if so, do you have an experience you can share?

MB: I do. I'd really hate to think we as a species have every last mystery explained. One of my paranormal stories: I'm a crazy cat lady. When my husband and I adopted our first set of kittens, they were rescue cats. They'd been born to a feral mom cat in a lady's back yard. When the kittens were about 5 weeks old, a freak storm moved through the area bringing unseasonably cold temps, raging wind, and incredibly heavy rain. Mom cat vanished. The lady went out in the storm to check on the kittens. She found them all in the nest, cold and crying. Two of the kittens had (she thought) already died. After she rushed the live kittens to the vet, she came back to bury the two dead kittens. One of them moved. He lived and was one of the two kittens we adopted. (Copernicus and Eretosthanes) For years after, I'd be looking in a mirror and a white cat would walk past behind me. . . thing is my two white cats would be in the room with me. We figured it was the sister who died and that she'd attached to Copernicus, who had so nearly died with her. She even moved when we did, following us to two different places to live. I never spotted her unless I was looking in a mirror. And she'd always walk past behind me. After about six years, she faded away. I stopped seeing her. Two years later, when he was eight years old, Copernicus faded away, too. I lost him to aspiration pneumonia. The other sister, Eretosthanes, lived to 18 and a half before she, too, joined her siblings. Now we live on a sailboat and I have no mirrors to see whether or not any of them come back to visit any place other than in my dreams.
SC:. That's quite the story. I'm kind of envious that you're living on a boat. What titles are you working on now that you can tell us about?

MB: The current WIP is a historical fantasy. Sort of. I'm not actually sure what it is, except weird. The series title is The Artifacts of the Aegean. The book itself is, as yet, untitled (titles are not my strong suit and are often the very last thing I manage to get.) This is set at the very beginning of the Civil War. It's spy versus spy versus the supernatural with a few bits of cursed gold thrown in for good measure. Those bits of gold could tip the balance of the war. My Union spy and her Confederate counterpart are each tasked with acquiring the powerful trinkets. Because I'm still in the middle of drafting this one, there is absolutely no slick marketing description of it.
Fair enough.

We're so excited. We can't hide it.
Stopping by Supernatural Central today is author Roxanne Rhoads, to talk about two of her books. For those of you who don't know, Roxanne is a very busy gal, hosting BEWITCHING BOOK TOURS among other things. Where she finds the time to write, nobody knows. I have booked one of her tours and LOVED IT! So much so that I'm going to do it again, really soon. But enough about me. Let's talk about Roxanne some more.  Here's the book descriptions for the spotlight today. See anything you DESIRE?


Halloween in New Orleans, anything can happen…including love and magick.
Paranormal researcher Liz Beth's dreams are haunted by a sensual vampire.

She arrives in New Orleans the week of Halloween in search of her elusive dream lover, but instead finds a handsome stranger.

They begin a passionate affair. Soon she is torn between dreams and reality, lost somewhere in the middle trying to regain reason.
She aches to find the vampire of her dreams but can't seem to break free of the spell her sexy stranger has her tangled in.

Welcome to the Inn of Amorous Apparitions where your every libidinous longing can be fulfilled by sensual spirits.
LizBeth has been hired to use her ghost whispering skills on the specters at the Castle Inn, but instead of banishing the seductive spooks Barbara, the Inn Keeper, wants them to "come out and play" with her special guests.

The Castle Inn is set to become the destination for the ghost sex fetish crowd. But first LizBeth has to convince the voluptuous visions that it is alright to participate in spectrophilia fun with the guests.
LizBeth has a special talent for seeing and communicating with ghosts but these enchanting ethereals are not cooperating with her, or her vampire boyfriend. Something odd is fueling the raunchy wraiths and they have to discover the power source or risk leaving a customer unsatisfied.

There’s more to this haunting than the average ghost. Will LizBeth be able uncover the mystery of this sexy haunted mansion?

 Kind of makes you want to know more about Roxanne, non? Well, we can tell you this:

Well hey there, supernatural fans. Today we're extra charged because author Anise Eden is stopping by to tell us a little bit about her new book  ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW (From the series The Healing Edge.)  If you're a fan of Karen Robards or Shiloh Walker, chances are this book is right up your alley. Anise writes in the paranormal investigative romance genre for this series. This is book two from the series and although it would be great if you had read book one ALL THE BROKEN PLACES, if you haven't don't let it stop you from reading her newest story. You'll easily get up to speed with Cate and her group of alternative healers/investigators.

So first, a little bit about the story.

Therapist Cate Duncan has just accepted a job with the MacGregor Group, a unique collective of alternative healers. She’s excited by the prospect of honing her empathic healing techniques among others like herself—aura readers, telepaths, crystal healers, and more. The fact that Cate just started dating Ben, her magnetic new boss, is an added bonus.

Before Cate can settle into her new routine, the poisoning of a prominent neuroscientist draws the entire MacGregor Group into both a federal investigation and an even more insidious threat. Protected by Ben’s former Marine Corps unit, Cate and her colleagues must use their alternative healing methods to solve the crime as their patient clings to life.

The responsibility of discovering crucial information falls to Cate and her parapsychological powers. But for Cate, unraveling the mystery means reopening wounds that had just begun to heal—and in the environment of the Marine Corps unit, differences between Cate and Ben become clearer, straining their budding romance. When a new crisis looms, Cate must trust in her colleagues’ gifts and the strength of Ben’s love, finding the courage to confront her deepest and most terrifying demons—or her own life will be at risk.
Whoa! I know right? So much intrigue. So much love. So little time. Sigh.

With Anise being the busy gal she is, we wanted to ask her three short little questions so she could get back to work on her next project. So here goes…
SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character of this book.

AE: Cate Duncan is a young psychotherapist who is trying to adjust after her world is turned upside-down. In the first book of The Healing Edge Series, ALL THE BROKEN PLACES, Cate is struggling after her mother's suicide. When she reaches out for help, she finds herself with the MacGregor Group, a clinic of alternative healers who also have paranormal gifts. There, she is introduced to the idea that she is an empath-something's she's never head of before—and is invited to join the Group as a healer. In this second book in the series, ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW, Cate is thrown into the mix when the MacGregor Group is asked to use their unique gifts to try to save the life of a prominent neuroscientist, even as they help solve his attempted murder.

The books are written from Cate's point of view, which as a writer I really enjoy. In addition to being someone with deep empathy and feeling, Cate is smart with a quirky sense of humor and a lot of inner strength. But like all of us, she is also flawed and human, dealing with serious emotional problems and a tendency to act independently and impulsively when asking for help might have been a better strategy. I love watching Cate courageously fight to grow in order to meet the new challenges that keep being placed in front of her. I hope her readers find themselves relating to her and rooting for her as much as I do. 

SC: Cate certainly has some unusual experiences. Do you believe in the paranormal yourself and if so, do you have an experience you can share?

AE:  It's hard to say whether I believe in "the paranormal," because that term means different things to different people. However, I have had some experiences that as yet are unexplained  by science, and I've spoken to many people who have reported similar things. Through other's gifts, I've been able to receive contact from those who have passed on. I've also had incidents of "intuitive knowing," or knowing things instantly about loved ones who are miles away without having spoken to them.  

For now, these experiences would be categorized as ''paranormal,'' but I am of the opinion that we're at the very beginning of understanding how energy behaves, and that one day, physicists will uncover how these phenomena occur. In the meantime, I believe it would be foolish to dismiss the unusual experiences I've had just because I can't explain how they happened. That would be like a child denying that a flipping light switch turns on a light, simply because they don't yet understand how electricity works. The question of why we have these experiences, though, may always remain in the spiritual realm. 

SC: There's certainly lots left to discover. What are you working on now that you can tell us about?

AE:  Right now, I'm in the final stages of editing ALL THE LIGHT THERE IS, the third book in the Healing Edge Series, which is coming out Spring/Summer 2017. In this book, the MacGregor Group is thrown into a completely new setting full of mystery and intrigue, where they must face down an ominous  threat. Meanwhile, Cate and Ben struggle to protect one another as their relationship continues to develop and deepen. I'm excited about all of the ways in which the various threads from the first two books are weaving together, and I look forward to sharing this final installment with readers! 

It was fun spending some time with Anise. You can get link to her Amazon page below.


Supernatural Central would like to thank BEWITCHING BOOK TOURS for introducing us to Anise. Supernatural Central was not paid for any part of this interview. Our opinions, as always, are our own.

This month is going faster than a roller coaster.

It's been a busy month for Supernatural Central, but there's always a few seconds to say "hi, thanks for stopping by." That page clicker thing…it keeps adding numbers thanks to great guests and great readers like you.

Today we have author Tinthia Clemant stopping by to share some news about her book "THE SUMMER OF ANNAH - A Midsummer's Wish" with us. Take a look at the book trailer below to set the mood.

Thinking love and romance? Thought so. But here's a  longer description for you to put you even more in the mood:
“The true love I desire shall come to me. I am the lock he is the key. As mine to him, his soul shall speak to me. This I seek, so mote it be.”

When 55-year-old earth-witch, Annah-Belle Henderson, cast a spell for love she never envisioned her wish would be granted in the young nephew of her longtime friend. With a face that rivals the Norse god Thor, and a body to match, the charismatic Eric Ashworth draws Annah into a dizzying current of emotions. Should she accept the chance for love with a man twenty years younger or reject her feelings?

As a past darkness threatens to destroy her, Annah makes a decision that begins a journey fraught with judgement, betrayal, and perhaps death.

SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character in The Summer of Annah.
TC: Annah is a strong, determined, feisty earth witch who suffers from the same angst that so many older women suffer. She challenges her decisions based on her past failings more than her past successes and desires someone to share her journey but refuses rescue. She’s loyal and spirited; funny and quick tempered—she rocks.

SC: She sounds like quite the lady. She's probably had a lot of crazy experiences. How about yourself? Do you believe in the paranormal and if so, do you have an experience you can share?
TC: Like Annah, the character in my book, I’m an earth witch. My beliefs encompass the Universe and the ground on which we walk. I believe in the energy that surrounds each and every one of us. That energy speaks to me through my surroundings. I don’t have a particular experience to share other than the day-to-day whispers I hear.  One only has to be silent and at peace and their knowledge comes across loud and clear.

SC: That's another conversation for another day. What titles are you working on now that you can tell us about?
TC: At present, I’m working on the sequel to The Summer of Annah: A Midsummer’s Wish, entitle The Summer of Annah: A Labor of Love. It’s due out Midsummer, 2017. I’m also working on a new series You gave me wings! that I’ll publish on the winter’s solstice, December 21, 2016. The story centers on a woman who travels to Italy in the hopes of finding inner forgiveness for a past mistake. During her travels, she discovers blessings she would never have imagined.

SC: Sounds like you've got your work cut out for you. We'd better let you get to it. But for the rest of you who wanted to know a little bit more about her, here's Tinthia's bio:
Tinthia Clemant was born in Medford, Massachusetts, over sixty years ago. In other words, she's old! As a child, she lived happily in a loving home with her three siblings and mother and father. She always wrote. From the time she first picked up a pencil, or perhaps it was a crayon, she wrote. Love stories. Happy stories. Stories about love with happy endings. Her first book was self-published. (At the tender age of seven, she stapled the pages together and presented it to her mother on Mother's Day.)

As contemporary women's fiction's newest author, Tinthia fell in love with love stories and true love when she first learned about true love's first kiss. That did it for her! Unfortunately, she has yet to find that special kiss. Throwing her arms up in defeat, she decided to write about it and live vicariously through her characters.

Tinthia lives on the banks of the Concord River and spends her time teaching science at a local community college, gardening, painting, feeding her multitude of Mallards (follow her natural history blog at:, reading, and, of course, writing contemporary women's fiction about romance, relationships, and true love. She also enjoys Chunky Monkey and American Dream Cone and other enticing flavors produced by Ben and Jerry.
