  • Sasquatch shifters? Yes, please. #Bigfoot #paranormal #romance #FindingBigfoot

    My father-in-law Gary LOVES Bigfoot. In a manly way, of course. He’s been obsessed with Bigfoot for as long as I’ve known him. In fact, he’s rather perfected a Bigfoot greeting and is often howling into our woods, hoping to draw one near. I recently asked him to give it a go here at The Big Cedars…

    Gary has seen every episode of Finding Bigfoot, which I only started watching in the past year as research. So guess what. Now I’m obsessed too. When I started thinking about what book I might write next, again I wanted something that hadn’t been overdone. Let me tell you, there are damn few Sasquatch love stories out there and that’s a pity because Sasquatch needs love too.

    This, of course, all got me pondering how that might all work because there’s definitely the possibility for it to all go wrong. Way, way wrong. I found my answer in the shifter romances. What if Sasquatch was a shifter? What if 99 percent of the time he looked just like your banker or tax guy, or teacher or…you get the picture.

    What if the reason no one has ever captured a live Sasquatch or discovered a dead one is because they SHIFT?

    And so it began… Ethan Lane is a writer, who just so happens to have a terrible, wonderful secret.

    Shifted in Seattle 

     

     

     

    No one’s ever captured a Sasquatch.
    Until now.

    Sasquatches have roamed the Pacific Northwest for centuries, hiding in the wilds of the northern territories and protected by the Lummi nation.

    When Seattle author Ethan Lane’s secret is exposed after a first date with Ruby Parsons goes wonderfully right, then horribly wrong, he’s faced with betraying his clan or losing his only chance at true love and a normal life.

    Sometimes love gets hairy.

  • Bigfoot Revealed? Outed in Shifted in Seattle #paranormal #romance #Sasquatch

    The best video proof we have of Bigfoot to this day remains the Patterson Gimlin footage from 1967. You can watch the recovered and enhanced footage and analysis here thanks to National Geographic:

    In Shifted in Seattle, Ethan gets caught on camera in downtown Seattle setting off a chain of events that threatens to not only expose his clan but ruin his best chance at a happily ever after. Find out why it’s growing more and more difficult for Bigfoot and his kin to stay in the shadows.

    There have been an incalculable number of Bigfoot sightings through the years in the US alone. Somehow, even with a cell phone in the hand of virtually every ten-year-old in the country, there still hasn’t been any clear and definitive evidence brought forth to answer the question of Sasquatch’s existence once and for all.

    Here are the 6 Most Believable BIGFOOT Sightings so far… until SHIFTED IN SEATTLE that is.

  • A Sasquatch by any other name would smell as…yeah, bad. #Paranormal #Romance #Shifter #findingbigfoot

    img_5853-363x640

    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a frequently referenced part of William Shakespeare‘s play Romeo and Juliet – Wikipedia 

    Juliet had the right idea. Sometimes it doesn’t matter if your love interest is in the rival family or gang or clan or…a Sasquatch because love wins, my friend.

    My latest novel is a sexy Sasquatch shifter story. Shifted in Seattle and answers all sorts of questions for believers and nonbelievers alike, such as:

    Why has no one ever, in all these many years of stories and searching and sightings, captured a Bigfoot. Dead or alive?

    Why have there been no Bigfoot bones excavated?

    Why do nearly every nation and native peoples have Bigfoot stories passed down through oral tradition since time immemorial?

    Sasquatch is the most universally common name for the enigmatic, hairy, humanoid creature, which has eluded capture for centuries if not longer. The term Bigfoot wasn’t coined until 1958 when a set of mysterious tracks were found in Del Norte County, California.

    The Yeti is considered an entirely different beast. As is the Abominable Snowman. Even so, it’s my contention that they are all the same species, carefully concealed through the years by a curious ability and the help of native peoples.

    In China, they are known as Fei Fei and Ye Ren, which means Wild Man. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, they are known as Mystery Apes. In Australia, they are the Yowie. Brazilians call them Mapinguari.*

    No matter what flavor of Sasquatch you have in your neck of the woods, know one thing; Sasquatches need love too.

  • When a Missed Connections ad leads to finding Bigfoot… #PNR #shifter # romance

    Shifted in Seattle all begins with this real-life Seattle Craigslist Missed Connections ad.

    H.P. Lovecraft: Stand-Up Comedian – m4w (Annex Theater) – Seattle

    Tuesday night, after the show, you and I flirted while in line for the bathroom. We agreed that even if the staff had to clean up a blood sacrifice, the place was still nicer than the streets below.

    You smiled at me as you took off, but there was no chance for me to get your name.

    Buy you a drink sometime? We might as well enjoy ourselves before Cthulhu rises…

    After seeing that ad, my writer wheels started turning. Seattle? Hmmm…lots of Sasquatch sightings in the Seattle area. What if…

    And a book was born.

    Here are a few real-life Craiglist Missed Connections read for dramatic effect by my friends at The Mystery Hour.

     

    Have you ever placed or answered a Missed Connections ad? How did it turn out?

     


  • Your worst first date probably didn’t end with a Sasquatch #paranormal #bigfoot #romance

    I’ll be honest. I was trying to count exactly how many first dates I’ve ever had… I think it was ten. And they were all from 1985-1988. So yeah, it’s been a while.

    Shifted in Seattle begins with a first date that goes wonderfully right, then horribly wrong. I polled my Facebook friends and fans about their disastrous first dates, and here’s what they had to say. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, but other times…it all ends with a Sasquatch.

    First Dates Gone Wrong

    OMG. So what made mine SO bad was I married the guy and it was the worst 15 years of my life! Be warned, if the date is bad… it’s a SIGN. A BIG sign. Ugh…- Anonymous #1

    I was stood up twice in the same night — by the same guy. I also had a guy hand me a 5 page single spaced typed treatise on why women should pay their own way on a date. God, I’m glad I’m married. –Anonymous #2

    A guy I had dated told me a friend of his would be perfect for me. So I went for drinks with both of them. They both got drunk. I had to drive home. Plus, the guy he thought I would like was wearing these weird blue jean with blocks of denim. I vowed I would never see him again. But I did. We were married 9 months later and had 33 years of (mostly) happy times until he passed suddenly on 2014.  -Anonymous #3

    Ok. So I went on a date with a guy that said, I’m leaving in a few weeks. ( we all know what that means) so I said well I’m leaving tomorrow. Nervous because I’d never done this before so quick I hit my friend with the car when she was getting out. He got to my house. Got butt naked and passed out. I called my friend in horror because he had a full bush. She talked me into trimming it down and waxing him. That was before I was an esthetician. He woke up screaming. With half a bush and darted out the door. And my best friend saw him a week later and was like… So you’re the one Precious got ahold of huh? – Not-so-Anonymous Precious

    Blind date shows up to take me out to Cracker Barrel. He looked NOTHING like his photo and was very unattractive. He had Tourette’s syndrome and he rocked back and forth, grimacing and making grunting noises. He only talked about oysters the entire time- how to grow oysters, cook oysters, oyster recipes, etc… During the meal, his dentures fell out of his mouth! Then he made me pay for my own food. Then he went out to his car (where a box of wine was waiting on the floorboard) and he got drunk. Before he left, he said, “I just want you to know that in case a relationship develops between us, that I REALLY LIKE OYSTERS.” It was the most traumatizing date ever. LOL. I felt like I was in a Monty Python skit. –Anonymous #4

    Sure… went to lunch once with a very nice man (blind date whose relative had been trying to set us up for a long time) and enjoyed listening to stories about his ex-wife for the entire afternoon. –Anonymous #5

    We went to see “Hot Shots,” the most embarrassing, stupid spoof ever. Then, when he dropped me off, he pinned me against the door to force me to kiss him. Sorry, no. The whole date was a mistake, and he stalked me as I worked as a carhop at Sonic (where we met) and asked why I wasn’t returning his calls, after that. Yikes. –Anonymous #6

    My worst date was a blind date. He showed up late to a group date, looked like he crawled out from under brush and talked about his ex the whole time. I ordered chicken, He left and stuck our hosts and me with the bill. We laughed about it was so bad. –Anonymous #7

    I went to insomnia cinema to see her choice. The Hills Have Eyes (horrid). Like the worst movie ever. It was a sign! 30 years later and she still likes to pick the flick. They aren’t all duds but I’ve seen some cheeky, geeky, campy stuff! – My husband
