The Injustice of Superpowers | Jennifer Harlow

Posted August 12, 2013 by Jennifer in Author Guest Post, Stomp vs Romp 2013 | 1 Comment

  In the STOMP corner today we have the author of the F.R.E.A.K.S Squad Investigation series and the new Galilee Falls Trilogy, Ms. Jennifer Harlow The Injustice of Superpowers by Det. Joanna Fallon, G.F.P.D.  This article first appeared in the Op-Ed section of The Galilee Gazette. It was written in response to the recent law that gave superheroes Federal Marshal status in certain circumstances, thus elevating these “vigilantes” to law enforcement officers. I have been a member of the Galilee Falls Police Department for eleven years. I have four commendations for bravery and valor in the field. Recently, I’ve even been promoted to Priority Homicide, the pinnacle of law enforcement. We get the cases with three or more victims or high profile cases. It took […]

Stomping with the Enemy | Suzanne Johnson

Stomping with the Enemy By DJ Jaco, Wizard Sentinel, Greater New Orleans Area Some people romp. Some people stomp. Still others get stomped on. I like to think of myself as a kickass stomper who occasionally misses her target. (Yeah, okay, sometimes I am the target, and the bad guys don’t miss.) And now there’s a new prete (aka “preternatural critter”) in my hometown of New Orleans that has me making my battle-preparation list and checking it twice. I’ve had my share of dangerous liaisons since Hurricane Katrina blew down the borders between worlds and I became the Sentinel wizard in charge of keeping the peace.  That translates as making sure the pretes who come into modern New Orleans can mainstream with the blissfully unaware […]

  3 Ways Fight Scenes are Like Sex Scenes by Chelsea from Vampire Book Club    I like my sexy books with plenty of action. Fight scenes can even be set up the same as sex scenes in my favorite books. They’ll offer a fast pace, lots of action, hot flashes of skin, sexual tension that only complicates things, and whole lot of me flipping the pages faster and faster to watch the story unfold because I just want more.   Don’t believe me? Here are three ways fight scenes are like love scenes.   1. Fight Scenes Connect Us to the Main Character Usually by the end of a good love scene readers understand the character’s emotions more clearly. Everything is stripped bare, yes? […]


Stomping with Rachel Caine

Stomping with Rachel Caine

Today in the Stomp corner we have the author of the urban fantasy trilogy, Revivalist, Ms. Rachel Caine. Welcome to The Book Nympho! Howdy! That’s Texas talk, and in Texas, we know a bit about STOMPING. Yee haw! Also, HI. You’ve written about vampires, weather wardens and djinns; and now zombies. What made you go with zombies and how did you come up with the idea for your kind of zombies? I wasn’t originally thinking so much that they were zombies (not in the traditional sense) as people who were “frozen” at the moment of death … not able to live, but kept from death by the drug they take daily. Why is that important? Well, it means if you’re one of the Revived, you’re […]

  In the STOMP corner today we have Amber R. from Awesomesauce.  Okay, so first of all let me say that I’m a lover of all things paranormal romance and all things urban fantasy. But for me UF totally wins in the Stomp Vs. Romp battle and I’ll give you a few reasons why. UF is usually darker and gritty than PNR which is right up my alley. We get action packed pages, amazing story, crazy character development, and a kick ass heroine. I’m not say that PNR doesn’t have some of these things but to me I feel like my UF series are usually more attention grabbing, usually have better story lines, better world building, better everything. And they really edge out PNR. More […]

  Today in the Stomp corner we have the author of the urban fantasy series Chicagoland Vampires, Chloe Neill. Welcome back to The Book Nympho! Thank you for having me!   Many urban fantasy series star a strong heroine, like Merit. Why did you decide to have your male alpha character, Ethan take “back seat” to Merit in the action department? I would say Ethan is often Merit’s partner, not often in the back seat. That said, her job is to protect him and Cadogan, the House of vampires in which they live. His job is to ensure the House runs smoothly. Thus, to the extent she does more fighting than he does, it’s because their particular jobs are different. Also, it’s fun to let her wield […]

Why Stomp kicks Romp’s ass any day of the week! by Laura at Little Read Riding Hood Let me start this off by saying I don’t hate Romp. A good Romp every now and then is perfect. But Stomp fills a void I didn’t know I had. With Romp, while you may not know how they get there exactly, you know how it ends. With Stomp, you are never sure. It keeps you on your toes, literally, until the end, and even then you are not sure if it is over. For example, M.R. Merrick’s Protector Series has some of the best Stomp scenes I’ve ever read. Maybe I am being a bit sexist here, but his fight scenes last longer and are more action […]
