Welcome to the second day of my Almost Heaven West Virginia Blog Bash.

Welcome to all my followers and visitors, I am having a month-long celebration in my husbands honor. My husband Denny is retiring from the Navy after serving for 24 years. We are packing up one last time and moving back to his home state of Wild Wonderful West Virginia. Each post will start off with a picture to showcase West Virginia.  Everyday their will be a prize up for grabs and at the end we’ll be giving away some chocolate.

Please follow the rules posted at the end of each post to enter the daily contests and remember you don’t have to subscribe to win but I hope you decide to stick around. Also any post that contain super erotic material will carry the warning label so as not to shock or offend anyone upon opening.

Today is all about Karen Marie Moning or KMM as her Moning Maniacs call her.  Karen couldn’t join us as she is very busy writing.  I love Karen’s Highlander books and if I had read them while pregnant I would have named my boys Drustan and Dageus. How I love my Mackeltar’s descendants of ancient Druids essential to the Fae Queen to maintain the weil between the human and Fae worlds.


Then we have the Fever series which is so addictive with Mac and Barrons…goodness who wouldn’t crawl after Barrons.

“My  philosophy is pretty simple-any day nobody’s trying to kill me is a  good day in my book. I haven’t had many good days lately.”

MacKayla  Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car  that breaks down only every other week or so. In other  words, she’s  your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman.

Or so she   thinks… until something extraordinary happens.

When her  sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her  death–a cryptic  message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in  search of  answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a  shadowy  realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same   treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater  challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she  had no idea she  possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the  world of man, into the dangerous  realm of the Fae…

     I used to be your everyday, average girl but all that changed one night in Dublin, when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets…

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million year old book of deadly black magic, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by people she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two dangerous and powerful men, V’lane, a lethal Fae prince and the mysterious Jericho Barrons.

He  calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him,  too.

When Mac receives a page torn from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s words. Mac knows her sister’s killer is near. The sidhe-seer is on the hunt: for answers, for revenge. And for an ancient book of magic so twisted and dark that it corrupts anyone who touches it.

They may have stolen my past but I will never let them take my future.

When the walls between Man and Fae come crashing down, freeing the immortal Unseelie from their icy prison, Mac is caught in a deadly trap. Trapped and tortured by the Fae Lord Master, Mac has no memory of who or what she is: the only sidhe-seer alive that can track the Sinsar Dubh, a book of black magic that holds the key to controlling both worlds.

and the much awaited Shadowfever  

“Evil  is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.”

MacKayla Lane  was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for  adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years  later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled  them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she  descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a  secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that  have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows  is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac  struggles to cope with grief, while continuing her mission to acquire  and control the Sinsar Dubh–a book of dark, forbidden magic  scribed by the mythical Unseelie King that contains the power to create  and destroy worlds.

There are also two soundtracks for the fever series that Karen’s husband Neil did, Bloodrush and Shadowsong.

Here are some pictures I took at Karen’s first FeverCon 2010.      

                           This is my version of the MacHalo that I called D Lo because Dani moved so fast she needed lots of light to keep the shades at bay.
