Grim

ZeusScarycroppedgrim is a haunting spirit. In adjective form the word means dreary or gloomy, but its Old English definition of fierce, cruel, or savage denoted a harsher tone. In my Wytchfae series, the Grims are ghosts that did not move on to an afterlife. Instead, they hung around earth too long, becoming unmoored from their memories and higher spiritual selves. As a result the memories of others is their delectable and ghoulish food. Author Mae Clair has a Mythical Monday category, as I do, and wrote a fascinating post about church grims, the big black spectral dogs that guard graveyards. Take a peek here.

    I like the idea of the Grims in your Wytchfae series! Even the word “Grim” is such a cool supernatural word, inspiring goose bumps! Thanks for the shout-out and the link to my blog post. I think you might be linked to my current Mythical Monday post, however, about the Jersey Devil. 🙂 The Church Grim post is here http://maeclair.net/2013/10/28/mythical-monday-the-church-grim-by-mae-clair/

    And, hey, I didn’t know you did Mythical Mondays too! We do have a lot in common! I’m subscribed to your blog so I’m sure I’ll be seeing them. Hooray!

      Got it! Thanks a bunch. FYI– I wrote the book before the tv show Grim came out lol. The word must have sparked up the ethers.

      Yes, I’m trying to get back into blogging and promo. That’s been the hardest thing since losing my husband a few months ago.

      Thanks for the communications and camaraderie.

        Oh, Flossie, I’m so sorry for your loss! I’m married to my high school sweetheart and can’t imagine life without him. You have my deepest sympathy. I’m thrilled to have “met” you and look forward to seeing more of you on your blog and social media forums.

        P.S., I only ever saw one episode of Grim. Enjoyed it, but just never made the commitment. I’m much more of a reader, so I’d never be able to make the connection anyway. Happy to discover the world of Grims in books, including yours! 🙂

          We met when Ronnie got out of the service and I was in my second year of college and are together ever since. Mae, kudos to you and your husband for also showing that true love is real. I look forward to keeping in contact. Thanks for stopping by.
