How to Court a Demon–And Win a Book & Kickass Journal

Secretly, we all want to be them–those kickass heroines who stalk off (usually wearing leather) hunting down the supernatural bad guys. Whether we kill ’em or love ’em to death is up to us. Right? Join us today as fellow Alabama author Kerri Nelson talks about Supernatural Hunters, her new book, Courting Demons, and a giveaway–of course. You can read more about Kerri at her website. Kerri’s also sponsoring a KINDLE giveaway…please read into the comments section to find out how to enter!
Be a Supernatural Hunter:  The New Sport of Modern Day Kickass Gals
by Kerri Nelson

Now, I’m from the sunny South, and around these parts—guys dig hunting.  They hunt for quail, turkeys, and deer, mostly.  But, truth be told, I’m not a fan of hunting.  I think it is silly, time consuming, a waste of time and money and, frankly—cruel.
That being said, I’ve often thought it would be fun to be a Supernatural Hunter.  What if you could leave your daily grind behind and go on the hunt for creatures of the night? Armed with the latest in weaponry and wisdom acquired from the knowledgeable likes of Buffy, Angel, and those adorable Winchester brothers…you’d ride off into the night on the prowl for new adventures and sexy conquests!
There’s definitely something thrilling about the thought.  Now, the question that remains is…would you want to be a lone wolf?  Taking on the night under the cover of darkness, you’d be a sole bad ass chick.
Or, would you want a band of cohorts to offer that much needed moral support and unconditional love (kinda like the Scoobies from Buffy)? Or, would you want one clever, handsome bad boy to ‘have your back’ when all odds are against you? (I’m thinking of a delicious Spike.)
Or, would you want a true partner? Like the brothers from Supernatural. Someone that is your flesh and blood (but will probably make you ride shotgun most of the time just like most siblings).
Man, this is a tough choice. But if I was a real life Supernatural Hunter, I think I’d like a true partner like my big sister.  Where I’m more of a common-sense thinker, the creative-minded, sultry brunette…she is definitely the wiz kid and even speaks multiple languages (this could come in handy when chasing those out-of-towner demons).  Add to that, she’s a sexy blonde too, and we’d be downright unbeatable kickass gals. Of course, in real life we’re both mega moms and, truthfully, a bit softer than sleek but hey—I think it might be an adventure worth dreaming about—perhaps even one worth writing about.
So, today…I’m giving away a Supernatural Hunter journal. Maybe you can use it to keep up with your own adventures of the wild and wicked kind. And when you set off into the sunset in search of your next great hunt, don’t forget to take backup.
Thanks, Kerri! I’m also sponsoring a giveaway of Kerri’s new book, COURTING DEMONS. Here’s the blurb:

ABOUT THE BOOK: Paisley Barton was already having a bad day before she turned her husband into a rat.
       First, she was fired by her boss, and then came home to find hubby in the shower with a naked blonde chick. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but this breakup may just unleash hell on Earth when Paisley casts a spell of vengeance against her philandering husband.
       After her spell casting inadvertently opens a portal between dimensions, Paisley finds her family home transformed into a nightly courtroom for settling disputes between demons of the underworld — and she’s the judge! If that’s not enough, she’s got to deal with a charming, ancient demon named Camden who wants to be her personal bodyguard while trying to explain her husband’s sudden, mysterious disappearance to sexy police Detective Dalton Briggs.
       But Paisley will show them all that an everyday working mom is better equipped than most to deal with the mystical mayhem…and with a tempting demon hottie and a flirtatious young detective vying for her affection, she soon learns that being single again isn’t so bad after all.

“When a wronged wife turns her cheating husband into a rat, you know you have to keep reading! Kerri Nelson offers up a lot of fun and wild magic in Courting Demons!” —Bestselling author Linda Wisdom, Demons are a Girl’s Best Friend

Want to win a copy of COURTING DEMONS and a great new journal to record all your own (mis)adventures? Comment here about whether you’d like to be a kickass supernatural hunter, and what you’d like to hunt? Me, I’d be too chicken. I’m a lover, not a fighter. So I guess I’d rather be a kickass supernatural SUPERVISOR, and send my minions out to fight the evil dudes.  You know the routine: +1 entry for comment, +1 for blog follow, +1 for Twitter follow @Suzanne_Johnson, +1 for Tweet or Retweet of the contest.

  1. Would probably be a supernatural hunter, going hunting for some nasty demons, wear really cool leather outfits, great way to get out mega aggression!

  2. Oooh, why limit yourself? What about having that “one clever, handsome bad boy” who is also the lone wolf’s true partner? (No blood connection.) We all need backup when hunting, and it would be nice to have someone else to do the heavy lifting. 😉

  3. While in my day dreams I could be an ass kicker like Buffy, I’d probably fall into a dead faint if I actually encountered a supernatural being.

  4. Hi Suz & guests!

    Thanks for hosting me at your rockin’ blog today, my friend.

    I love your idea of assigning minions to do your dirty work. Why didn’t I think of that? Of course, what would you have to do to get a decent minion around these parts?


    Thanks for sponsoring a free copy of Courting Demons in addition to the journal. How nice of you, my hostess with the mostess.

    Oh, and anyone who reads this comment…don’t forget to enter my separate blog tour drawing to win a KINDLE! Details on my author blog here:

    And today’s question of the day is this (don’t post answer here–e-mail me at end of tour):

    Where is Courting Demons set? (Correct name of state = 1 entry & Correct name of city = 1 bonus entry)

    See you on the e-road.


  5. @JeanP~I with you on the aggression relief. Can you say “road rage”? LOL Thanks for the comment.

    @Rebecca~Awe now…there’s a girl after my own heart. Why can’t we have it all, eh? 😉

    @Anne~LOL Probably (secretly) true of most of us. But your secret is safe with me.

    @Sandy~Knowing what you want and don’t want is half the battle. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I’d be too scared. Now, if I could hide behind my characters (all butt kicking warriors), then I might go along for the ride. And watch from a safe distance.

  7. I liked Suzanne’s answer. A kickass supernatural Supervisor 😉 I wouldn’t want to hunt any of them because they all fascinate me. Well maybe a zombie hunter. There are some books out there with zombie romance *shivers* ugh! I don’t think I could read that. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. i would like to be a hunter i think it would be great.
    i would not just want to hunt demons but i would also want to go after all of the humans that slip thru the cracks and get away with things like child abuse,rape and spousal abuse. to often they are just let back out on the street to victim someone else. think i would love to be a super hunter and get them as well as the demons that were let loose on humanity.

  9. @Vicki~Good to know! Thanks for stopping by today.

    @Casey~Well, maybe if you have an invisibility power or something you could hide out in the moment?

    @BookSake~I’m sure the vamps and puppies would appreciate the distinction. 🙂

    @Tanya~I wrote a funny zombie mom short story once called “Breakfast with a Zombie”. With so many small children keeping me up all night, I quite often feel like one. Ugh!

    @Tammy~ YES! Most excellent! You’ve made me think of and miss one of my fave shows, Dexter. Have you seen it? There’s a serial killer who is actually the hero of the series. He’s a vigilante and you actually find yourself rooting for him to kill. I wish I’d thought of the idea for that series. It is brilliant.

    Thanks to all! I appreciate the comments!

  10. I think I’d rather write about it than actually do it, but I’m pretty sure my sweetie would never let me try it without him, LOL. He’s the one with the training anyway, and I’d be the one doing all the fast driving.

    The book looks great, Kerri! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  11. Hi Kerri,
    What a great question. I would love to be on a team of kickass hunters. I would be the one with all the brains of course. And while I’m at it give me these long killer legs with some lethal boots. lol…

    And why didn’t I know you were living in Alabama? We are almost neighbors.

  12. Being a hunter sounds good in theory but I’d rather watch someone else hunt on TV!

  13. I’d want to have at least one back-up. Someone my who could be my opposite and maybe think to ask the question I’d overlook. 🙂 And if he was cute, all the better!

    I’m a longtime follower, Suzanne, and on twitter too.

  14. @Nicole~I know–practically speaking–it would be uncool to risk our lives to deal with the big bads–but I still think it would be uber fun to kick some bootie! Thanx for the comment. xo

    @elaing8~I hear ya! Thanks for the comment on the book–hope you’ll get a chance to check it out soon. I appreciate the comment.

    @ella~I love it! I’m totally down with the fast driving, too. Everyone needs a great wheel man/woman. 🙂

  15. @Dawn~I totally thought you knew we were neighbors. Hope to head your way in March for the FF&P conference. But are you going to ATL for the M&M conference? Can’t wait to give you a big hug. Oh, and when I read your comment just now I accidentally read “lethal boots” as “lethal boobs” and I thought–hey those can be lethal weapons too! LOL

    Love my Dawnie!


  16. @Llehn~I know what you mean. I like to watch too. I’m absolutely addicted to it. We should have a “hunter marathon”! Thanks for stopping by.

    @Julianne~Cute is so totally a requirement. I’m down with that. 🙂

    @Sofija~Yeah, Buffy is a classic. I wish I’d thought of it. Some great writing on that show.

    Thanks to all for a great day!

    Hunt on,

  17. Oh I am sure I would end up being a kick ass supernatural hunter slash demon lover. I can’t resist a bad boy that I of course would bring the best out of. 😉

    This sounds like a fun laugh out loud book. A Rat! 🙂

  18. @Jennifer~Thanks for stopping by–hope you’ll pick up a copy when you can. I promise there are laughs galore.

    @Julie~Saddle up and let’s go! Thanks for the comment.

    @Lisa~Hunting for male kickass hunters? Hmmm…the hunter becomes the hunted. I love it! Thanks, Lisa!

  19. I’d love to be a supernatural hunter, getting all the nasty demons outta here. I’d wanna be like Buffy, and have my peeps with me. However, in real life, I’d be outta there so fast, you wouldn’t have even known I was there. 🙂

    No worries and thanks for stopping by my pal Suz’s blog. Isn’t it grand?
