You can’t replace the feeling of sitting at a typewriter and feeling the weight of each key like a true writer. The upside of using a USB typewriter vs. a real typewriter is you save a bunch of trees and editing your work is much easier. Just pull up your latest draft on Word and type away your editor’s suggestions or not. Ignore your editor, keep going in the direction you were thinking from the start. The usbtypewriter Etsy shop has got you covered in that front.

Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate Series:
Vampires? Check. Ghosts? Yup. Werewolves? Hell yeah! Best of all, a steam punk, parasol loving heroine :) The Parasol Protectorate Series has it all for us paranormal book worms. Gail Carriger quickly became one of my favorite authors. I read her first book of the Protectorate Series, Soulless, in 2 days. I took an instant liking to Alexia Tarabotti, our clever and pragmatic soulless heroine. She is witty, fashionable and has no patience for social faux-paus or dim-wits, particularly her step sisters and mother.
You’ll be devastated when you finish the series because your will be left craving for more. The best cure for the-end-of-a-great-series-blues is to hunt for another great book. I find most of my books from Felicia Day’s Goodreads recommendations. She is smart, funny and <3′s the same books I do :) I also follow her Vaginal Fantasy book club, where Felicia, Bonnie Burton, Kiala Kazabee and Veronica Belmont discuss every month books that range from Urban Paranormal to Historical Romance. I love their easy going and funny chats about smutty, paranormal books. I’m usually not able to see their google hangouts live because they’re at 11p.m. E.S.T but they always post their hangouts on youtube a couple of days later.
Feel free to post in the comments your favorite urban paranormal book.
