PSB: Guest Post & Giveaway with Darynda Jones

PSB2

 

I love Paranormal Spring Break as much as you guys do, because I discovered amazing new-to-me authors in the process! Today, Darynda Jones, authors of First Grave on the Right is by my side for a very helpful guest post. The subject I suggested her? Reaper's Guide: The Art of Dating. Shall we see the 5 golden rules of dating Paranormal style?

 

 

A Reaper’s Guide to Dating:

Tip #1: Prepare mentally
Everyone, even a reaper, needs to prepare for the dating arena. If you really want to succeed, to find that someone special, you’ve got to be committed to playing the dating game. Preferably without collecting the soul of the person you are dating. Unless you are willing to date a corpse. In that case, be prepared for a very one-sided relationship. Advice: Don’t kill your date.

Tip #2: Prepare physically
Treat yourself to a makeover. Go shopping. Get rid of that dry skeletal look that was so yesterday. For the love of God, exfoliate. And that long black robe? Very 70s. Update your hair and wardrobe and step into the arena in style. And don’t kill your date.

Tip #3: Think about your expectations
Consider what you hope to achieve while dating. Are you laid back and just want to have fun by poking your would-be honey bunny with the tip of your scythe or do you want to be married in eight weeks, seven days, six hours and twenty-three minutes? Dating for a long-term relationship versus dating for purely sexual reasons are two very different kinds of dating. Adjust your regimen—and your attire—accordingly. And don’t kill your date.

Tip #4: Be realistic
Dating is a whole-package kind of deal. If you want glitz and glamour, you need to present yourself that way. And, no, sewing sequins onto a tattered black robe doesn’t really count. See tip #2. You might stash the scythe while your at it as well. It makes people…uncomfortable. And don’t kill your date.

Tip #5: Never make yourself too available
Dating is very much about the thrill of the chase. Don’t be afraid to be mysterious. In keeping with this philosophy, don’t sleep with your date too early. Sure you can tie him up on the first date, but will that really give him a sense of who you are? Or will it have him pressing charges? Best to save the bondage for the third date as a general rule of thumb. And don’t kill him!
These tips were brought to you by the caring people at the Rest Easy Mortuary, where resting is easy and eternal.


Waa! What an helpful guide Darynda. I already found my second half, but I’m sure this precious will help many single girls out there *winks*
In the spirit of Spring Break, would you share with us your best memory?

I’d love to say my fav memory of spring break was when my BFF and I went to Hawaii, had torrid affairs with male supermodels, then won a bikini contest that was judged by the members of Seether. (I have a little crush on the boys of Seether.) But since none of that ever happened, I guess I probably shouldn’t say that.

Really, I’m the most boring person ever. My best spring breaks were hanging with my BFF at the lake, lounging on rocks and spinning tales of adventure and mayhem.

Once a writer, always a writer.
Thank you so much for having me!

---------------------------------

Thank you so much for stopping by Darynda <3 It’s been a pleasure to have you on the blog!

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper.

Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

Read an excerpt

Fun facts about the book:

    • Charley’s name was originally Harley Davidson, lol. Yeah, it was worth a shot.
    • Originally, Charley was NOT the grim reaper. She was more like a sarcastic version of The Ghost Whisperer. But an agent who was interested in the story early on said that concept had been done to death. He wanted something bigger. And the real Charley Davidson was born! (Then the agent rejected her.)
    • Darynda stole the name Reyes from a kid while she was working as an interpreter, as well as the name Federico. She hopes they’re okay without them.
    • The character for Uncle Bob is based on the high school principal in Darynda’s hometown. He doesn’t really like her, so nobody tell him.
    • Misery is based on her brother’s cherry red Jeep Wrangler.
    • Charley’s attention span is quite similar to the author’s.
    • Swopes (ie, Garrett Swopes) is Darynda’s BFF’s last name.

  10. Thanks for this awesome giveaway Tynga and it's really nice to make it international =) ! Darynda Jones seems really funny ..
    Let's see .. a dating tip .. I'd say, though it's kind of cliché, just to be yourself because if you're not I don't think it's worthy to keep seeing the guy. I mean, you have to feel comfortable around this person and in order to feel that way, you have to act like your normal self =)! I don't know if you understand what I mean, my explonation is kind of messy.

    Thanks for the giveaway ;) !!

  12. Hmm. Dating tip....

    Obsessive stalking on facebook is okay - as long as you don't get caught. So don't reveal anything that you shouldn't know, like his mom's name, what his childhood dog looked like, and that his favorite music and books all now mysteriously match YOURS. And don't kill him. ;)

  22. How about don't date another reaper? You would constantly have to be on the lookout for him to kill you and you would have to prevent yourself from killing him...wayyy to much preoccupation and hazard for the dating arena...come on, isn't it hazardous enough without having to dodge your date's scyth?

  31. My dating tip would be, that even if you don't like the individual or want to ever go on a date with them again, at least have a fun time in the moment then. Just because they were not your type, doesn't me you can't have a fun one time evening with them.

  41. Never go into the relationship thinking you can change him. This Thursday I will have been married for nine years and I can honestly tell you that it just is never going to happen. There are VERY few men that will change so you have to go into a relationship with the knowledge that what you see is what you get.

    Ok. Let's see, dating tips...
    Be yourself, honest, fun or boring (there are all sorts of people) do not talk too much about yourself, but neither should talk all the time about the weather, it is knowing each other, go to a place where both feel comfortable and no kisses haha, guys like to play a hunter yet.

    On the first date, dont kiss. It may seem right at first, but you may not like them later, because their true colors may begin to show. And it will be a whole lot easier to break up with them if you show that you are not very intersered.

  87. Never kiss on the first date. It will be going too fast and it will be hard to let them down later if you need to.

  98. I think the most important tip on dating, that I unfortunately have never managed to follow, is "get yourself a date" LOL

  101. The best advice I can give to either girl or guy is to *wait for it*: LISTEN!!! Hear what the other is saying! You may not agree , but listen and talk with them, not TO them

  104. My dating tip is BE HONEST! Do not go around inventing stories about yourself. It doesn't make the other person on the date say 'Wow'. It just makes them think you are desperate. Plus, if it really turns into something, it's going to be difficult to keep the lie going!

  109. I don't date so I can only suggest going to a place that is positive and being yourself. I know a lot of friends who pick up dates at the bar. That just doesn't seem like the kind of place I'd want to pick up a guy.

  111. Date the people you like, not no matter what your friends think. Your friends may think your date is hot or fun or perfect for you, but you're the one who's got to actually spend time with them.

  115. I'm guessing the best tip would be to just be yourself!If a guy is into you as you really are,I'm guessing you have more odds to have a good time with him!

  124. Hmm .. Dating tip ?
    In any kind of relationship , the most important would definitely be RESPECT . Respecting each other is important . If the other is not treating you correctly , don't be with him/her . There's no reason to put up with him/her . There will be someone out there for you :) It's probably hard to see it right now . But there is .
    So , RESPECT!

    Yours truly , Fidah .
