Our Guest Today is Ellen Cross!

Welcome Ellen Cross to our blog family. In order to get all of her awesome formatting I had to save her post as a png so I’ve included a link to her new book at the end of her posting.

You can get a copy of Ellen’s new book at eXtasy books here

Coming soon to everywhere else!

  1. Hmmmm most memorable minion that I can recall is Guy of Gisbourn – the sheriff of Nottingham’s henchman.

    I’m not sure why he’s stuck in my mind so much….

    1. It’s because he is almost a desperate minion. I think I have every version of Robin Hood (and a couple of the really unique versions, thanks to a little gender bending) and Guy, in all of the versions, just seems to be such a desperate, hapless creature.

      Thank you for the snippet Ellen. I am going to have to go check out this series. I am a fan of the slow build up and serious intent. 🙂

      1. That sounds about right Erika. I do admit to going back to the book after writing the comment to try and figure out why he stuck in my mind and I think you’ve nailed it!

  2. The first one that popped into my head was Jaws from James Bond but I don’t know if he’d count as he did get his HEA after a fashion. Lol.

  3. Doby, from Harry Potter would be my favorite as well. Book sounds interesting, I have not read any of your books yet, But I would like to try this one. so I will be adding it to my to be read book. Thank you for sharing with us. 🙂

  4. Hi Ellen !!! Ur book sounds great. Thanks for posting. I think my favorite minion was Mini-Me .

  5. Hi, many years ago ( I’m not telling how many) I saw the original Frankenstein as a child and always felt so sorry for Igor. He worked so hard for such little reward. That was the first time I realized how much it sucked for minions in movies and books. Lol.

  6. Godzilla from the old Japanese movies. I always felt even though he was very large, the Japanese army was too mean to him.

    your book sounds very interesting, I will check out the series.

  7. Hi! I have 1-4 already of this series and have enjoyed it so far. Most memorable minion would probably be the flying monkeys from The Wizard of Oz original version. When I saw it on tv as a kid they just freaked me out for some reason.

  8. In the extended version of Lord of the Rings, I really felt bad for Wormtongue, the guy that was advisor the King Theoden when he was possessed.

    I love the preternatural series and if you have not read the new addition it is really a good read, and I cannot wait until the next book.


  9. Even though she has her “good” moments, Pam from True Blood. Not only can she be evil, sinister and sexy, she does have some of the best lines in the show.

  10. Hey! Nice book, i’ll be checking it out 😉
    As for the best minion, Doby from Harry Potter.

  11. Hi! I have not read any of your books, YET, and this one has got my interest piqued. I’m gonna go check them out right now!!!

  12. Just want to say hi, I also haven’t read any of your books, there aren’t to many books out there on people in wheelchairs my husband being one of them, can’t wait to go check this one out

  13. Hi Ellen, hmm a memorable minion – it depends if you know the British series but the first minion that came to mind was Baldrick, a character that was reincarnated into several different historical periods (series) versions as himself to serve the latest incarnation of Lord Edmund Blackadder. Even though he is sometimes treated quite badly, he still stays loyal to the family & is desperate to please his lord and often had a cunning plan to resolve any problems – but the plans often did not work.

  14. Loved the snipet, I have not read the series but it is definately on the want to read list. I have to agree with KayFoster about the mnion. I think she watched the same series as me with Robin Hood and Guy was definately the underdog and at the end you just had to feel sorry for him.

    1. Yes… he was the one who came to mind immediately when I thought of a memorable minion!

  15. Have been thinking about reading this series since it was talked about in the extasy chat. My favorite minions is the heat miser and snow miser minions from The Year Without a Santa Claus.

  16. Igor, and the cowboy from the movie Blazing Saddles who does whatever Hedly La Marr says. I think his name was Taggert.

  17. Hi, love this series. I already have it, but my favorite minions are the yeomen that get killed off that are not the plucky comic relief as per Fred Kwan.

  18. Most memorable minion would have to be Indigo from the Princess Bride.

    Thanks for the look at your book. Definitely going to check out more of your books.

  19. Hi ellen I love your books my favorite minion would have to be colonel klink from hogan heroes lol

  20. Thank you so much everyone for such a wonderful response!
    I have to agree with some of your minions, as I too felt the old tug at the chest for them, and I have a nice list compiled of the minions I need to check into, so thank you! 😀

  21. Why not give a henchman a happily ever after? Everyone has their own story and why they’re in the situation they are in. It would be fun to see how it all lead to them being in the career path they find themselves in.

  22. Sounds like an interesting book. I’ve been enjoying the minion comments too. I’m also going with the flying monkeys. They were terrifying and yet I felt bad once I realized the we’re people….

  23. What an eye catching cover.
    Most memorable minion would be Loki as played by Tom Hiddleston, minion to the Frost Giants.

  24. Hi Ellen, I love this series, can’t wait to read book 5! As for my favorite minion…I love Bucky Barnes from Captain America, though now he’s more of a main character getting his own story.

  25. Ooh, I so did enjoy the first Preternatural Rescue Centre story. Somehow I got behind! A favorite minion? I think Lukhas from the BDB…

  26. The most memorable minion I can recall is Minion, the alien fish-thingy from Megamind. He was adorable, and surprisingly helpful. Your book looks interesting; I’ll have to buy it if I don’t win!

  27. Sorry for taking so long to get back here, but life has been throwing me a lot of curve balls, lately.
