From March 10, 1997 to May 20, 2003, a pop culture phenomenon, that was considered to be one of the best television shows to hit the air waves, graced us on the small screen. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a mix of horror, comedy, romance and melodrama. It spanned for seven seasons and the witty dialogue of the show continues in comic book form to this day.

Thanks to my daughter I recently began watching web series and find I have fallen in love with this fairly new style of entertainment. The length of episodes (generally running from 5 to 10 minutes) is perfect for my busy lifestyle–I can sit down and take a quick break and enjoy an episode or two. What has amazed me is the incredible quality that is out there–they easily rival the quality of big budget TV.

Calliope Reaper-Jones is the daughter of Death. Daddy is dead, and Callie is now the CEO of Death, Inc. It’s not like she wanted the job, but somebody has to send the souls off to where they belong. She has ushered in The Golden Age of Death (by Amber Benson)…if she can keep her head from being chopped off.

When I heard that the wonderful Amber Benson of Buffy fame was going to be in a new movie I made it my quest to get to see it. Well not only did I get to preview this interesting Indie action film, but I got the chance to interview Ward Roberts who wrote and directed it, and I got a chance to again interview Amber! So I hope you enjoy both interviews, watch the new trailer, & check out the film when it is released next month.

We are SO very excited to be able to share with KRL readers not only a review of Amber Benson’s new urban fantasy novel How To Be Death, but also a wonderful interview with the absolutely charming and sweet Amber! We also have a copy of How To Be Death to give away–details at the end of this post. For those who don’t know, Amber played Tara in the best TV show ever (in my personal opinion) Buffy The Vampire Slayer!

Mystery TV Fall Preview

Fall is in the air, at least in my imagination. The advent of Labor Day turns my mind to thoughts of fresh pencils and notebooks, new shoes and the TV Guide fall preview issue. I can almost feel the heft of the glossy pages as I set out to plan my TV life back in the day – a time when there were only three networks, you had to hurry home to watch your favorites, and sometimes faced painful choices when two were on at the same time.
