Bad is in the Eye of the Victim – Um – Beholder
by Angela Brown and Gwen Gardner
All of you are probably wondering why you’re gagging at the smell of rotten eggs and burned everything. That would be the wonderful scents of sulfur and the never-ending fires of my home.
Hell, as so many call it.
I have a name you will discover when you read Neverlove by Angela Brown. My friend, the inky black blot of wavering shadow by my side, well, you can learn more about it – him – when you check out Givin’ Up The Ghost by Gwen Gardner. Forgive his silence. He doesn’t say much.
Now, here’s the real deal. That girl, Abigail – from Neverlove – should have just finished what she started at the very beginning so that I could feast on her soul. The more tortured, the better. And hers was the ripest, best kind. I am the Devourer, after all. Can’t fault me for wanting my souls seasoned with a bit of…suffering.
Speaking for the Shadow, here, I’m sure whatever he has in mind for Indigo – from Givin’ Up The Ghost – isn’t too bad. He’s a Shadow. What can he do?
*The flames flicker. The stifling, lung-burning air grows chilly. The Devourer shivers and shoots a glance at the Shadow*
Okay, I take that last part back. Sheesh. Didn’t have to take it personal.
Back to my point. Some of us villains tend to get a bum rap. Like beauty, bad is in the eye of the victim – um, I mean – the beholder.
Maybe some of you know a villain that got a bad rap. How ‘bout you tell us about them. Really, I want to know…and no, I won’t devour your souls if you do…or don’t…maybe J
[Ed note: I've been dying, er, longing to read Angela's book ever since I knew she was writing one. And Gwen's sounds just as awesome.]

Running, writing and reading are my favorite things.
I am also a dreamer.
Have you ever told yourself that "someday" I'm going to travel or write or whatever it is that you are passionate about but can't do right now for whatever reason? You can go for years and years and keep telling yourself that "someday" you'll do it. Too often "someday" never comes. But mine did. I am a former Administrative Manager and Vice President of a successful swimming pool plastering company - until I woke up one day and realized that my "someday" had arrived. I quit my job, moved to the mountains and began to write. Crazy, I know. But even crazier? Is when you get to the end of your life and realize that your "someday" is too late. Life is much too short for that! So the adventure has begun.
