Several months ago I was searching the internet for witchy PNR books when I hit on Molly Harper’s Better Homes and Hauntings. The title alone made me chuckle, so I checked out her backlist and realized she was also the author who wrote the Naked Werewolf series one of my friends had been raving about for weeks. I burned through those (and most of the Jane Jameson series) and now I’m on to the Half Moon Hollow spinoff series.
It’s not often that a book’s blurb hooks me. I mean, they can sell me on a book based on the premise. What I’m talking about is borderline obsession with a blurb. (Don’t look at me like that. I’m not in this just for the wings.)
My editor handled Samhain’s recent Cyberpunk anthology call. The three novellas she picked were released on Tuesday, and I admit–I ogled the covers and moved on. While I love Steampunk jewelry, I’ve never gotten into reading it. I hadn’t even heard of Cyberpunk until that anthology call, so I was wary of the unknown. And then I saw the trailer for Ghost tweeted. [Read more…]
When you fall out of step, that’s when everything falls into place.
R.J. Blake begins a new session tutoring young werewolves in the old ways—before the introduction of the shift-suppressing drugs that allow their kind to live secretly among humans. He expects nothing out of the ordinary. Until sexy, smart, aggravating-as-hell Corey Wilson arrives. Older than the others, son of a powerful Los Angeles pack leader, Corey is an instant temptation he cannot afford.
The last thing Corey wants is three months stuck in the Yellowstone wilderness, followed by the stifling life his father has all mapped out for him. One glimpse of R.J., though, sparks a determination to seduce the older man before he leaves. Yet as R.J. guides him through the sometimes terrifying process of rediscovering his heritage, a deepening respect calls to his artistic soul and fuels a burst of creativity.
When their time comes to an end, Corey senses hesitation behind R.J.’s insistence that theirs was simply a summer fling. Inspiring him to take a leap of faith with consequences neither of them saw coming. A dangerous plot that reaches from the heart of their love to the highest office in the land…
Product Warnings: This book contains a young werewolf intent on seduction, an older werewolf determined to resist said seduction, werewolf politics and brutality, a little spilled blood, and hot, naked manlove in the great outdoors.
A few months ago, a friend of mine, Voirey, asked me to design her a series of book covers. I’d never made a book cover before, but she picked such beautiful stock art (by one of my favorite photographers), that I knew I had to give it a shot. The results are the covers for her The Mansion series. It’s been a different sort of pride than when my own books release, but still a very cool experience to work with Voirey on her vision for these books.
Her newest release is Amy, Undone. It’s possibly my favorite cover of the set. You should check it out. Really, I’ll wait. 😉
Amy’s the tough girl. The tomboy. She likes herself and that has always been the only thing that mattered to her. That doesn’t seem to be enough for her husband, Eric. He’s always trying to dress her up and make her something she’s not… beautiful.
Eric sees something Amy doesn’t. But before she can recognize her own beauty he knows she has to let go of her self-image and come undone.
