Amazon Author Page

I now have an Amazon author page. I’m still navigating the waters, so it’ll be updated over time.

Guest Post and Giveaway!

Tomorrow, I’ll be over at Jessica Freely’s blog talking about vampires and giving away another copy of Close Quarter. There will also be another except from Close Quarter.

Stop on by! I’ll have another post tomorrow with the direct link.



Release Day! Release Day!

I’ve been doing the release day dance today! Only sedately, since I do have a day job and they already think I’m odd.

But it’s release day! Close Quarter is currently available at Loose Id,  at All Romance Ebooks, and at Amazon. I’m stalking B&N to see when it pops up there.

On Thursday, I’ll be over at Jessica Freely‘s blog talking about the vampires in the book and giving away another copy. I have some other guest blog posts in the works, and some more give-aways, which I’ll be posting as I get the details.

But I wanted to post an excerpt here, as well. Here’s what happens when you don’t pay attention to where you’re going….

You must be at least 18 to ride this ride

Yes, but what’s Close Quarter about?

I’ve posted other people’s blubs… but not my own. Time to remedy that!

On a transatlantic cruise to New York, sculptor Rhys Matherton struggles to piece his life back together after losing his mother, inheriting a fortune, and finding out his father isn’t his father after all. He spills a tray of drinks on a handsome stranger, then he finds himself up against a wall getting the best hand-job he’s ever had. And for the first time in his life, he feels whole.

Rhys enjoys the company of Silas Quint, but for the eerie way no one pays attention to them even while they kiss in a crowded bar. Silas explains he’s a forest fae able to glamor the room around them—and more importantly, that he’s on the cruise to hunt vampires. Rhys thinks Silas is full of it, until he discovers vampires are real, and he’s part of the main course.

Silas Quint can’t be distracted by a human lover, even one as lovely as Rhys. Stuck in the middle of the ocean, he has barely enough of energy to hunt the vampires he’s been sent to destroy. Rhys is full of the one thing Silas needs needs most—the element of living plants. Only sucking energy from Rhys would make Silas as soulless as the creatures he hunts. How can he keep Rhys safe, without becoming like the very monsters he hunts?

Good Reads from fellow SHU WPFers

Second, three other ladies I know Seton Hill’s Writing Popular Fiction MFA program (from which I graduated) have books that have just come out or are coming out from Loose Id. I wanted to share the two that have been released with you. These ladies are wonderful writers and it’s been neat to watch all of our books appear in the Coming Soon section of the web site, then, one by one, get released.


First to be released was Evey Bret‘s Levade,  a sequel to her book Capriole.

Felipe’s world is shattered when he receives word his lover Lukas is dead, presumably swept away at sea. Grieving, he struggles to control the psychic gifts he was born with and trains to become a Warden—someone who hunts incubi and protects their sexually voracious half-human offspring. Despite erotic temptation and misadventure, Felipe never loses hope of reuniting with the man he truly loves.

Aided by Lukas’s herd of Lipizzans, Felipe learns that Lukas is alive and initiates a rescue. Their reunion does not go well. Lukas can’t remember Felipe nor can he answer questions about where he’s been. Despite Felipe’s repeated seduction attempts, Lukas’s condition deteriorates until he’s more horse than man.

Heartbroken, Felipe is afraid that unless Lukas can come to terms with the devastating truth of who—and what—he is their love will be lost forever.

Blood Bound and Beautiful

Next to be released was Kierstin Cherry’s Blood Bound and Beautiful.

Returning to reclaim her vampyric kingdom, the exiled queen Vladja is determined to defeat her usurper brother, Decai, and his unliving forces at any cost. Before she can claim sovereignty, Vladja must first solve the dark riddle of the Throne of Bone. When the riddle demands she forsake and betray her human lover, a Lady who wields the hand of a god, Vladja is torn between duty and desire.

The more she tries to stay away from the Lady Grace, the more she wants her. With their passions flaring out of control and Decai’s forces bearing down upon them, Vladja and her Lady embark on a desperate plan to unleash their passions upon the Throne and break its power once and for all. But will their love and lust prove strong enough to defeat the ancient dark magics or will the Throne of Bone consume them with the deadly power of the Marrowing?

If you hop on over to Jessica Freely‘s blog before November 13th, you have a chance to win a copy of Blood Bound and Beautiful.
