Seconds, Halloween Costumes, and the Immortal Guardians.

Hello! Thank you for joining us. I’m very happy to be here today, celebrating the release of AN IMMORTAL GUARDIANS COMPANION. The first book in the series, DARKNESS DAWNS, released ten years ago, so I thought this would be a perfect time to provide fans of the series with a one-stop shop for fun Immortal Guardians extras like over a dozen deleted scenes, lots of character interviews (many conducted by Sheldon), bonus scenes, short stories, and more.  If you aren’t familiar with the Immortal Guardians series, it revolves around powerful immortal warriors who spend their nights hunting and slaying psychotic vampires. Those immortals are, more often than not, aided by humans they refer to as Seconds. And together, the mortals and immortals form a constantly growing family that—despite an occasionally dark existence—loves to laugh and tease. Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I would share some of the Halloween costumes certain Seconds (some with a mischievous bent) would select for Immortal Guardians if the latter went trick or treating. 😉 Ami (Marcus’s wife and Second) bought this dino-rider costume for Marcus and got a smaller one for Adira. [] Then she chose a paleontologist costume for herself. [] Tracy (Lisette’s Second) chose these for Zach and Lisette [], though Zach won’t need the fake wings. [] His are much more impressive. 😉  Since Étienne used to worry Krysta would think him too old for her when they first met and fell in love, Cam (Étienne’s Second) chose these costumes [] to make Étienne feel younger… then shared photos of Étienne [] wearing it with the entire Immortal Guardians family. 😀 Since Seth doesn’t have a Second, Lisette chose these costumes for him and Leah. Seth immediately declined the hat because it inspired too many guffaws. But he OK’d both zoot suits once he saw Leah in hers. Now he’s ready for a long night of dancing… and thunderstorms. [] These costumes were delivered anonymously to Bastien and Melanie. [] Melanie was furious at first. But Bastien—ever the black sheep and totally undaunted by being likened to a monster—merely smiled and said he’s happy to be her beast. [] Ed (Ethan’s Second) wanted to get Ethan a Simpsons’ Duffman costume, but—after laughing long and hard at the image of Ethan in such a getup—Heather [] said she’d rather see what Ethan looked like as a cowboy since he was born near end of the Wild West days. Ed has since chosen these costumes for them. [ No one was willing to admit who bought this costume for Roland. [] I suspect his rather abrasive, antagonistic, antisocial behavior inspired it. Little Michael loved it, however, so Sarah decided to go with it and demanded one of her own. 🙂 []   

We’re excited to share with you the next new release from author Dianne Duvall!

An Immortal Guardians Companion By Dianne Duvall Release date: October 12, 2021 Hello, all! Your favorite character, Sheldon, here. If you’re an Immortal Guardians fan, I think you’re really going to enjoy this companion. Dianne has packed it with ninety pages of deleted scenes that feature many of the characters you’ve come to know and love plus a bonus scene from Cliff’s Descent that you won’t want to miss. You’ll also find every character interview Dianne has ever written inside these pages. (Those of you who’ve encountered a few in the past know the ones I conduct are the best.) If you’ve never read one or you missed a few, then pick up a copy, sit back, and laugh while I interview Immortal Guardians and the loves of their lives for the network. Even Chris Reordon and Todd down at network headquarters get in on the action. I also interview Dianne and ply her with questions I thought you’d like to ask her. Throw in a couple of short stories, what inspired the Immortal Guardians series, and a brief Who Does What Now? list, and you’re bound to enjoy it. See you on the inside! Your friend, Sheldon Immortal Guardian Richart’s immensely competent Second And the most beloved character in the Immortal Guardians series (at least in his mind)

    Awe! These were adorable to envision. Bastien as Beast is spot on. Wonder if the Earthquakes finally subsided or at least calmed down at the homestead *wink*
