Happy New Year & An Annoucement

Happy 2018 you delightful devils! Let’s hope your celebrations (and libations) didn’t take you too far off the path. We all know how those Pookas can appear when you least expect them…

2017 was a big year for me personally: it saw the publication of my latest book, Fairies, Pookas, and Changelings: A Complet Guide to the Wild & Wicked Enchanted Realm in April. By the fall I had completed the manuscript for my next book, Varla Ventura’s Paranormal Parlor: Ghosts, Seances, and True Tales of Hauntings (available for pre-order on Amazon, IndieBound or B&N). And in October, with the talents of Bo Luellen, we launched a new podcast, Varla Ventura’s Tales of the Strange: Season One–Strange America

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, Bo is no longer able to do the podcast. I am indebted to him for motivating me to think outside the book and he and I will remain forever friends. But this means that 2018 will have me reinventing the Podcast just a lil’ bit, and I will be learning some new skills (uh, mainly podcasting…know any good books on the subject?). For those of you who noticed nothings doin’ in the podcast realm, bless ye, for you are paying attention.

There are currently 3 episodes live and episodes 4 & 5 awaiting my nimble fingers but I’ve booked several guests that I can guarantee will delight you. So please bear with me as I try new things, take the reigns and make Tales of the Strange my own.

In the meantime, please enjoy the current episodes, tune in for upcoming interviews where I am the guest and take a peek at my books!

May 2018 bring you the vision of starlight, the creative genius of 10,000 novels and one more for the road.
