I love the addition of paranormal characters and by extension the genres where they’re commonplace.
Who among us didn’t dream as a child of having super powers or special abilities? Wasn’t it so much fun to imagine what it would be like to read minds, spin magic, or turn into another creature completely?
Well, the good news is through the wonder of books you can!
That’s the beauty of genres with paranormal and fantasy characters. They take people and make them more than the average human. Vampires can hear the heartbeats of those near them and move faster than the human eye can see. Werewolves become fearsome, almost undefeatable creatures who are very powerful. Wizards can warp time and space with magic.
Within these genres are fantastical worlds that are much like our own, but with certain tweaks. The characters fire our imaginations because they can do just a little more than we mere mortals.
Not only is fantasy/paranormal a genre all its own, but it’s a sub-genre in just about every other genre. Romance, historical fiction, mystery, all these genres have books featuring shifters, angels, vampires, witches and countless other types of characters that fall into the classification of paranormal or fantasy.
These characters are fun. There are endless ways to spin various myths and legends and portray these characters. The addition of a fantasy/paranormal character or setting adds a whole different level and depth to any story.
Traditionally, many paranormal beings live much longer lives. That gives an author the chance to explore various time periods through the eyes of the same character. Longer lives can add more layers to a character and it’s a creative way to show societal changes over the years.
Let that little child who dreamed of taking flight, defeating the bad guy or changing into a wolf, get swept away in adventure. Escape for a few hours with a book featuring fantasy or paranormal world and characters. This genre has something for everyone!

Welcome to The Vampire Guard, where myth meets science—to devastating effect.
When the threat is too great for human law enforcement to handle, world leaders turn to Akhkharu Nasaru: The Vampire Guard.
Forge, Blair, Lucas, and Declan are recruited by one of the world’s most ancient and secret societies, where they employ a combination of supernatural powers and cutting-edge technology to hunt down terrorists, thieves, biological weapons… and sometimes even their fellow vampires and werewolves. An eclectic organization comprised of individuals with diverse personalities, backgrounds, and abilities, this guard has bite—and they’re not afraid to use it.
