Gena Showalter is a well-known and highly respected New York Times bestselling and USA Today bestselling author of the White Rabbit Chronicles, Otherworld Assassins, Angels of the Dark, and Lords of the Underworld series. She has written over forty novels and novellas. Her books have appeared in Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Magazine, and have been translated in multiple languages. She is a leader in the world of paranormal romance, young adult romance and in 2015 she will be dipping her toes into the world of contemporary romance. She’s got as she says “a warped sense of humor” and a pen that just won’t quit. As a long-time fan I thought it would be great to sit and chat with the woman who has created countless works I’ve just died to own.
What I personally love about Gena is that she is committed to the fans and works hard to keep us happy but also just on the edge of our seats waiting on bated breath for the next publication. Also her knack for creating memorable characters is unmistakable. She is an expert at designing intricate storylines, other worldly romances, and sensational villains. Her evolution as a writer has been a pleasure to behold. You can always count on Gena to take you on an adventure with great locations, constant twists and turns and story endings that leave you hungry and begging for more.
Below is a bit of the conversation I was fortunate enough to have with Gena. Continue reading
Guerrilla Suspensions are always a fantastic time. The can sometimes be very risky but they are very exhilarating. Being able to suspend outdoors is, in my opinion, just one of the best ways to suspend. Being outside can be very symbolic of having no restrictions and can offer the chance to feel purely free. Recently Blood, Sweat, & Terror, a suspension team from Western Australia, put together and facilitated a beautiful Guerrilla Suspension in Perth.
I had a chance to chat with them about the experience and I wanted to share the experience from the views of 2 of their members: G.R. Inder and MsVV.
“BST crew members: MsVV, Tegan, Photographer X and myself G.R.Inder.
Photographer X found the location a few months ago in a refurbished public space backing onto an affluent west Perth suburb. We knew straight away it would make an awesome suspension point. Continue reading

What got you into hook suspension?
My first introduction to suspension was in Vancouver in 2007 with Russ Foxx, I got to see my very first one in person. Before that I only heard of it. After seeing it in person and how easy it seemed to get up, I started weighing it out as something I might want to do. When I finally decided to do it for the first time, it was just after my 30th birthday. It was finally time for me to try it. I was in a relationship that started to become very emotionally painful for me and was running out of options on how to deal with it. All the options I had tried only provided a temporary release. I hung for the first time and finally felt the release I was looking for. Continue reading

Suspension is to each person a different experience. For some it’s spiritual, for some it’s a challenge, and for others it’s the chance to be more than they thought they could be. In 2012, Tom was given the chance to hook suspend for the first time which was a monumental moment in his life because over ten years ago, Tom was in a serious motorcycle accident which claimed his left leg, arm, shoulder, and collar bone, confining him to a wheelchair. Jake of Waylay Suspension Force facilitated Tom’s first and the experience went extremely well.
It has been nearly two years since that experience and Tom is back at it again. This time claiming a 7 point superman as his 3rd hook suspension. Continue reading
