"Day of the Demon: Paranormal Women's Fiction (Demon-Hunting Soccer
Mom)" by Julie Kenner

https://www.amazon.com/Day-Demon-Paranormal-Fiction-Demon-Hunting/dp/1953572154/

Book number seven of a eight book urban fantasy series. I read the well
printed and well bound POD (print on demand) trade paperback published
by Martini & Olive in 2021. I will purchase the eighth book in the
series when it comes out in April 2022. And I will read it after the
wife reads it first.

Seems like a short time since "Carpe Demon" came out in 2006. Of
course, since then Julie Kenner has written over a hundred novels,
mostly in the Romance genre. But she returns to her first series now
and then for another good book.

Kate Conner and her extended family have just returned from an long stay
at the Vatican where she was raised to be a demon hunter for the Church.
Many unsettling things were revealed and more revelations are coming.
Unpleasant revelations. And a sudden attraction of many demons in San
Diablo, California to her family.

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Amazon rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (26 reviews)

Well, it's fantasy, which can excuse a lot. I will point out
that there is no "San Diablo" in California. There's a "census-
designated place" in Contra Costa County, in the region of Mount
Diablo. It has a population of 448 as of the 2010 census;
possibly more now. But it's definitely not a former mission, as
most placenames beginning with San[ta] are.

Note that the SCA branch in that region is called Teufelberg.

JK does the responsible thing and makes up the name of a city since San
Diablo is a fairly reprehensible city.

There isn't a place called "Sunnydale" either. When a small town is
needed it seems to be common practice to make one up rather than
steering the inevitable-with-success crazies to a real one. I guess
LA, San Francisco, etc are deemed to be big enough for the crazies to
get lost in the noise.

Do tourists show up in Sunnyvale (note V rather than D) expecting
to get a drink at the Bronze? Of course, it was destroyed at the end
of the series, when the town was swallowed by the Hellmouth.

Dunno. I've never been there, to my knowledge (might have been
driven through, or past, it en route to someplace else).
Population 152K as of 2019, an important part of Silicon
Valley.

Remind me, please, what series was this? (Not that I'm likely to
have seen it, but I might have heard the name.)

Ah, yes, I've heard of that one. My daughter followed it for
years. She is a Goth and likes, if not vampires, things
vampiric. She does own a few garments that are not black;
they're purplse. Suum cuique.

for a start, which as a bonus refers to a
Native American tribe named Bannock,
entirely coincidentally, if I follow.

...My point being: it means "Saint Devil".
Which is a controversial confusion of ideas.

But since apparently I have to explain this -
if not to everyone - demons may have been able
to assimilate into this version of America quite
well. No doubt there is a "melting pot" philosophy
in hell too, though with certain differences.

"Day of the Demon" is the name of the book.

"Paranormal Women's Fiction" is the type of book.

JK does not have books ghostwritten.

So, it's not fiction by, or for, paranormal women?

Automatic writing would be easier than the other way,
wouldn't it?

My guess would be that "paranormal" attaches to "fiction", not to
"women". If nothing else, there are likely to be a lot more women
interested in paranormal fiction than paranormal women (whether
interested in fiction or not).

But I suppose anything is possible ...

Hmmm. If I could get some sympathetic paranormal woman to finish
my space opera for me, and let me take the credit, you betcha I'd
accept. Even if her price were to Tuckerize herself as the
heroine.

There does seem to be a lot of Tuckerization going on lately. Since we
seem to be moving to group sponsored books from publisher driven books,
we may be entering the grand years of the Tuckerizatrion movement.
