A - Z Blogging Challenge: O is for Orbs

The A to Z Blogging Challenge is underway!
If you haven't heard of it, check out the A to Z blog and join in the fun.
Here at Untethered Realms, we're taking on the Challenge as a group. Each day, one of us will be sharing with you a fantastical creature that may be from one of our books, a favorite movie, or something we just came up with as entertainment.
 
O is for Orbs
 
 
 
So, you think orbs are just the clear round spots that show up in the backgrounds of photographs? That they're possibly caused by specks of dust floating around?
 
Wrong!
 
In my Afterlife series, the orbs floating around headstones and throughout the cemetery have much more on their, erm, minds, than photo-bombing people's photographs. They're colorful and hypnotic. Enticing, in a siren-luring-ships-against-the-rocks sort of way. They're found where the dead meet the living and everything in between. That's when the merry chase begins. They've held more than one paranormal enthralled for their own devious purposes.
 
But what do they want?
 
Read the first book in the series, Second Death, to find out.

  4. What a great twist on orbs! I always wondered if they were more than just lights flitting around in the night.

  5. My sister took a picture of a winter scene on her street this past year and when she developed it there were all these swirls and orbs which were not there when she took the pic. She showed a neighbour who also had taken a pic that night and there are all these orbs. You wonder...
