Love your blog too!

I love shifters and I'm always intrigued to see what an author does with that world and makes it their own. It's about time we get some repitle shifters. I love the reptile world and would love to read about how someone would see it.

Susan said...

It depends on the author and if the cover and blurp grabs me. I prefer shapeshifting dragons so far.

Stella Price said...

Dragons? HEH we have dragons... They will be out in January i believe.. keep checking back...

robynl said...

I prefer Dragons, also. I'm not sure I'm ready for the slithery ones, LOL.

why do i care if the Reading World in general is ready for Reptile Shifters?
This reader/writer/reviewer certainly is!!
My "first" Reptile Shifter came via Stella and Audra and i'll never forget that it opened up a whole new world to me! I grew tired of plain ole wolf shifting years ago, and i am a big fan of reptiles in general, so bring it on! I can't wait for the Iguana Shifters and Komodo Dragon Shifters! and yes, sex in Shifter form is just fine with me too! So i'm kinky! i believe in alien sex too!

I generally like this new trend of paranormal novels and creatures. But Reptilian weres do take a bit of getting used to, they aren't exactly my cuppa tea. So far I haven't read a great many books with these characters , but if well done, then I'm game to read them!

Suzette said...

I love shifter books myself but there are alot of them out there. I found your were-snakes to be really intriguing and sexy(yup I said sexy) considering they were snakes. I prefer Dragons more than anything but it all comes done to how well they are written. So far I love Bianca D'Arcs dragon shifters but that could well changes since you have Dragons coming out soon. I also just read two books with birds of prey shifters which I really enjoyed because of the change of pace from the usual shifters.

i like snakes so I'd to see how you did the shifting. I realy like dragons and the animal ones too. icia

I think snakes are sensual, so I don't have any problem with reptile shifters. In fact I just got introduced to one in fanfiction recently (buffy). He is from India and a were-cobra and soooo hot.
I still like my wolves and of course panthers, but I like variety too.

Jeanette J said...

I personally have no problem with any reptile shifters if the story is good also. There is always room for something different in books because there are so many different readers with so many different tastes and interests

Sara A. said...

I hadn't heard about the new wave of reptile shifters but I think it would be interesting. I would check the books out. I have really enjoyed the dragons that I've read. And of course I always love reading the usual were/cat type shifters. I don't think I will ever get tired of the shifter books!

This is my first time visiting! Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!

Michelle said...

I love shifters in general and have always had a soft spot for wolves, but I am open to other kinds. I have read books with wyvern and dragon shifters.

Cynthya said...

I like different kinds of shifters, but my favorites are the felines. I have enjoyed the dragon shifters, too.

Pam G said...

At first thought, it was blehh! But after I read one, it was pretty good. I guess it depends on how well it is written, just like any book does.

Meljprincess said...

There's a reptile shifter winding itself around my body, peering over my shoulder, and flicking it's tongue against my ear who inssssists I get the pewter snake bookmark.
Happy Halloween!

LINDA B said...

LINDA B said...

i love all except for snakes and rats

Jo said...

I enjoy that there are new shifters showing up. While I love the old ones, I feel there is always room for one ones.

Sherry said...

Stella - I still haven't bought your snake book but you know you have me very curious. Me, who is petrified of snakes. You sure make a strong sell. LOL! And as soon as I get caught up on reviews and everything else I have to give it a try. Curiosity is killing me. As I've told you before. :)

Michelle B said...

I love shifters, especially feline, but all shifters are hot. I just finished Griffin's Treasure and loved it. I like the added variety to the shifter world and think I could also go for reptilian shifters. I recently read Huntress (and would love more in that storyline) and the reptilian/mammalian alien species was great I have already read it again since I enjoyed so much the first time. MORE SHIFTERS!!! MORE SHIFTERS!!! MORE SHIFTERS!!!

LadyVampire2u said...

Shapeshifters are a big part of the supernatural community but rather unexplored for the most part because the usual animal forms are usually used. Not that I dislike the norm, but I would like to see authors step out of the norm and explore other shape shifting species as well. Retiles and dragons sound very interesting! BTW, Happy Halloween!

Cathy said...

I haven't read any of the snake shifter stories yet, but I love shifter stories, so why not?

Marty Rayne said...

My fav shifter is still the werewolf but I'm very open to other kinds. I think the reptile shifters is creative and interesting.

Pamk said...

I can handle the reptiles just leave the rodents out of it yuck. We have a ball python for a pet I can handle but won't touch the rats to feed it lol

Lucien Calanor said...

Well, as a fellow were-world fan and author (no my weres have not disappeared. They still live in head is all), I have to say the overhaul was long overdue. I got so freakin' BORED with the way author after author after author was writing using the same fictional world with the same fictional rules. It's the whole reason my weres were born in my head. I wanted to read something better, and at the time, it seemed the only way that was gonna happen was to write it myself. Of course, THEN I met Stella and Audra and realized that many other readers were feeling the same way and doing something about it. I think it's great. But I think we need to do more. Fans don't realize that in all reality, we have the publishing world by the balls. We have the power. If we don't buy it, if we don't read it, they don't make any money. I think readers have much more power than they realize and we can change a lot more.

I haven't read a reptile shifter yet but have to say it is intriguing. I do really like the feline and wolf shifters though.

Tam said...

Bring them on! I love different shifters. Also the vamps & weres.
Mix them up, it'll be a good read. I'd love to own a copy like that.

Tempest Knight said...

I like shifters. Any kind. Just make them believable. :)

Billie L said...

I have not yet had the opportunity to read any shifters other than vamps and werewolves. I am always willing to try something new. Especially when it is well written. With so many authors and so many writing styles I am bound to find other shifters and worlds that I will love.
