Please welcome my friend Vivian Lane!

Introducing Vivian Lane

As I mentioned in this post, Vivian is the new caretaker of my characters.

Her first book featuring William the vampire releases Sept. 30th! You can pre-order the book now.

Nothin' But Trouble - $2.99

Trouble—that’s what Catherine was from the day William laid eyes on her. He didn’t get involved with clients, and after his sire broke his heart and
abandoned him, women were of little interest beyond sating his occasional lust. But when a college girl is dumped in his lap, he soon discovers an irresistible temptation he only has six weeks to explore.

This story is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

Show her and William some love, 'kay?

Some News...

Bad News, Good News

First, Phantom Ridge is pulling Healing the Hunter from sale effective July 1, 2014.

Thank you so much to the few of you that ever bought a copy and left a favorable review. I wish the book had been better received, but I guess it wasn't most fantasy readers' cup of tea.

The good news, in a way, is that since I'm not writing anymore I've handed my characters - published before or not - to my friend Vivian Lane. She has plans for my vampire William from the Secrets Will Out episodes. Cheer her on to start releasing her books by the end of the year, 'kay? Phantom Ridge has agreed to take her on.

Well, It's Been Fun...

I'm here to say goodbye.

It was an interesting experiment to try writing as K.C. Taylor, but I've run into a lot of challenges that require more time and effort than I can give. And some of them, there's nothing I can do about.

Like how not unique "K.C. Taylor" really is as a name. I googled the name to see what would come up and didn't find much, so I thought I was cool. Not so.

For one, there's a musician on iTunes. For another, there's a different K.C. Taylor on B&N and a C.K. Taylor, too, that I get lumped in with in site searches.


So, long story short, Healing the Hunter is the one and only book that will ever be sold.

Thank you to anyone that has supported me. I'm grateful.

Secrets Will Out series Announcement


Phantom Ridge has decided to go back to the drawing board regarding the Secrets Will Out series. It hasn't performed like we hoped, and since this is business, we need to address that. So, if you see titles disappear off the sites, this is why.

Thank you to anyone that has supported these stories. I heartily appreciate it.

This does not affect Healing the Hunter at all.

Get Healing the Hunter in print at Amazon! #paranormalromance

On sale here.

Corinne started her career as a doctor hours away from home to avoid emotional attachments, but her plan to be all-work-no-play goes right out the window when she rescues bruised and beaten Michael Atherton one January night and discovers patching him up requires patience and sacrifice. He's damaged in more ways than one. Carrying out her oath to heal and do no harm becomes complicated when she's drawn into his unusual life of demon hunters, vampires, witches, and a teenage daughter.

If I love him, I have to let him go...

Mike is good at two things--killing monsters and making his ex scream. The graveyard shift is a lonely life and no one believes in him until he meets Dr. Corinne Larkin. She's beautiful, kind, shares his taste in movies, and soon becomes his best friend.

If I tell her the truth about the world, she'll think I'm crazy...

There's risk and pain, but the reward will be sweet if Corinne can master the art of healing this hero.

Paranormal romance with adult content.

#TVD "The Originals" reactions and reviews

The Vampire Diaries spinoff dubbed The Originals was ordered to series by the CW.

On Thursday, the Diaries’ spinoff averaged 2.2 million viewers and a 0.9 among adults 18-49 — down 31 percent from The Vampire Diaries‘ average this season. But the CW gives equal attention to a show’s impact in social media and online streaming, which is why CW topper Mark Pedowitz released this statement: “As soon as we saw last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, we knew we wanted more of The Originals. Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with The Vampire Diaries, which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for The Originals.”

You can find a recap here or here or here.

Hollywood Life was fully on board with this potential spin-off. "If The CW doesn’t pick up this spin-off, it would be a crime against television." was impressed with "The Originals" as well, saying, "As an individual episode, ‘The Originals’ managed to introduce a new world and a handful of new characters, while recontextualizing our relationship with a villain-turned-lead. That's not easy to pull off."

Fans can expect a decision next month on whether or not The CW will move forward with "The Originals" as a series. Meanwhile, "The Vampire Diaries" continues on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET.

The Vampire Diaries 4×20 Guest stars:

Joseph Morgan as Klaus;
Claire Holt as Rebekah;
Daniel Gillies as Elijah;
Charles Michael Davis as Marcel;
Daniella Pineda as Sophie;
Phoebe Tonkin as Hayley.

Joseph, Daniel, and Charles Michael Davis were the stand-outs - not only having the biggest share of screen time, but the juiciest words to act with. It's not easy to match Klaus onscreen, but Marcel was perfect. Excellent casting. He has the charisma to easily pull off being King of New Orleans, a feat quite impressive in a vampire only 100 years old.

Am I looking forward to an Originals series? Yup! Fans should especially tune in for Daniel Gillies as Elijah. He's exceptional, and not just on TVD, but I love him playing a very different character on the Canadian medical drama Saving Hope, too. (The English accent also helps.) And how loved is Joseph Morgan/Klaus? The April 22-May 5, 2013 issue of TV Guide has the Fan Favorites. Klaus won for Favorite Villain.

If The Originals goes to air, it'll include Danielle Campbell as Davina and Leah Pipes as Camille. TVD films in Georgia, so cost-wise, it'd be smartest for Originals to also be there and visit NO when they need to. Also easier for crossovers.

It's too early in the day for ratings to come out, so I'll update with those later.

What say you, TVD fans? Did you like ep. 20?

"The Originals" Pilot

Tonight is The Vampire Diaries episode that serves as the back-door pilot for "The Originals", a spin-off series about the Original Vampires on the show.

Behind the scenes video.

Episode summary:

"The Originals"
KLAUS RETURNS TO HIS PAST IN NEW ORLEANS — Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in New Orleans, Klaus makes a trip to the town he and his family helped build. Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his former protégé, Marcel (guest star Charles Michael Davis), a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie (guest star Daniella Pineda). Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Damon and Stefan continue with their plan for Elena, while Katherine reveals a surprising vulnerability to Rebekah and asks her to deliver a message. Chris Grismer directed the episode written by Julie Plec.

If this does well, a series for The Originals could be part of The CW line-up this fall. I'll be back with a second post tomorrow with reviews and ratings.
