Favorite Paranormal Creatures and Contest by Kate Hill

Favorite Paranormal Creatures and a ContestFor as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of the paranormal. Growing up I enjoyed horror movies and classic horror fiction. Later I developed a taste for paranormal romance and action shows and movies with a paranormal twist.

I’d like to share five of my paranormal favorites and my top three reasons for liking them.

1. Vampires

*They have long lives during which they can experience so much.

*They’re powerful physically and psychically.

*Vampire legends and traditional vampire characteristics are the most fun to contradict when writing stories.

2. Werewolves

*They’re the wildest of the wild.

*They’re a perfect combination of human and beast.

*Depending on the story, they’re the best protectors.

3. Centaurs

*They’re the prettiest human-beast combination–a beautiful man or woman and a magnificent equine.

*You can ride them, if they’ll let you.

*They emanate strength, honor and dignity.

4. Aliens

*They probably exist somewhere.

*They make you think about how big the universe truly is.

*In alien romances, the possibilities are endless.

5. Reformed Demons

*I can’t resist stories of revenge and redemption.

*They’re the ultimate antihero.

*They’ve overcome evil, so they know how to fight it.

There are lots of other fascinating paranormal creatures, but these some of my favorites. My Whisper series is about a town built for the supernatural by the supernatural. Some of these creatures, along with many others, are residents of Whisper. The town is home to vampires, wraiths, werewolves, various shifters, aliens, ghouls and more. It was a lot of fun to write about a place where many paranormal beings live in harmony.

What are some of your favorite paranormal creatures? Do you think they’d get along in a town filled with other supernatural beings?

Whisper 4: Black Catby Kate Hill

(M/M Vampire/Shapeshifter)

From Changeling Press

1_8 KateHillBlackCat

Vampire Edmond Chancellor and cat shifter Tobias Crawford have had a not-so-secret affair for over three hundred years. Edmond wants to bond with Tobias permanently, but Tobias has reasons for keeping his distance.

On a chilly December night, both men turn to past memories for guidance, but it’s a present danger that makes them realize that time is precious, even to men who are practically immortal.

The following excerpt from Black Cat is for readers 18 and over.

It was dark outside and although Edmond was a night person, there was nowhere else he’d rather be at the moment than here in bed with Tobias. His lover’s head rested against his shoulder and Edmond caressed his sable hair.

“Thank you,” Tobias said, pressing a tender kiss to Edmond’s chest. “For joining the rescue.”

Edmond’s brow furrowed. Cupping Tobias’ chin, he stared into his eyes. “You doubted I’d come for you?”

“I’m not your responsibility.”

“I wasn’t yours, but how many times have you watched my back?”

For the first time Edmond could remember, the cat shifter was speechless. Edmond took the opportunity to kiss him.

When it broke, Tobias had regained his voice enough to whisper, “Make love to me.”

“You’re sure you’re ready?”

“I’ve never been more ready in my life.” Tobias straddled Edmond and kissed him.

  1. For me it would be a toss up between wolf and horse shifters. I like stories that have heroes or heroines that are either type of shifter.

  2. I like aliens.I would love to meet one.

  3. Hell, that’s hard to pick!!! ;-( But it would be between Werewolves and/or Centaurs! That’s the best I can come up with.. 😉


  4. I like all kinds of shape shifters. I would add elves, mages and fae as some of my favorites too. Whisper sounds like a great place for paranormals to be living together.

  5. Hi, Starfox! Shifters are a lot of fun!

    Hello, Portland. That would be interesting!

    Hi Linda! Narrowing down favorite paranormal creatures is hard. There are so many great ones to choose from!

    Hi, Jess! Elves are great too. They’re usually so beautiful. Whisper was a lot of fun to write about!

  6. Eva Millien says:

    I love all paranormal! I can’t pick just one, so I just have to have at least 3. A red hot dragon shifter,a gorgeous vampire & an alpha wolf.

  7. Chris Roberts says:

    I love paranormals. Shifters are my first favs. They have the soul mate thing going on. Second would be gargoyles. I think it is great how they are stone during the day and have to live their lives only during the night.

  8. I am rather partial to bird shifters.

    I look forward in reading this series.
